We at My Life with Fel, would really appreciate if you unblock us from your adblock extentions. It helps us getting ad revenue and paying stuff. It's cool if you don't D: just sayin'
DISCLAIMER: Smackjeeves has been derping with the load of pics, if you can't see the comic page, try again later :c this is out of my hands, apparently.
...The Teddy Bears of Satan?
What does that make Mugger and Raccoons in general?
@Kenno Arkkan: In all honesty, it would.
I ran a SJ comic for five years paying $20 a year. Zero donations, and I make less in a month than many people make in a single paycheck.(Disability) People using ad-block never stopped me from releasing a single update.
@Anon: And i'm happy for you. your point is?
Anon's point ought to be obvious.
I'm happy to buy books, plushies, whatever- and talk up comics I love (like Fel). But the sneakier, more intrusive and creepy the ad companies get, the more necessary blocking ads becomes. So a lot of folks (myself included) have made an informed decision to permablock ads. There are plenty of ways to generate a revenue stream that don't abuse viewers or compromise our privacy.
if Ghostery for Firefox has taught me anything, it is that far, far too many total strangers are way, way too interested in monitoring what I am reading. That alone is reason enough to block all of them.
On this site alone I see 7 trackers:
Facebook, Pinterest, Google analytics,
Google +1,Project Wonderful, Quantcast,
and Twitter button.
Sorry Arkan, not interested.
@Syncline: :I i still don't understand what bothers you. this only two (2) ads (WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY LESS than most webcomic pages) you see here, are picked >>BY HAND<< by me. no one is looking at you browsing and saying "Hey! I should smack this OBNOXIOUS FLASH AD WITH MUSIC IN IT in his face!!".
But anyways, im "asking", not forcing you; pointing a gun to your head or anything. Thanks a lot for reading and enjoying My Life with Fel.
The problem is that the images often don't load in the earlier pages of the comic, and I have to often reload the page to see the panel-- I thought it only affected those pages, but it apparently affects all pages since this one is on the fritz too.
Also, who is the badass here? I forgot how divisions works, is it better to be 1st, or is it reversed, like with Burn Categorization [1st-6th, from sensitivity to complete burn through and conversion into charcoal].
@Syncline: Exactly. Besides, I could understand if he was personally hosting and maintain the operation of the site. That stuff costs money, and ads help with that, but those are things that SJ takes care of, free of charge.
Oh, so we aren't on Smack Jeeves, I did not notice that.
Been reading with no ad blocker, but using the Tor browser. I hope this gets you the ad hits; it (hopefully) keeps the snoops from tracking what I'm doing. I'd prefer to support your art without being tracked by folks who really have earned our distrust.
@Anon: :I just putting a couple facts here: The webcomic has it's own domain (mylifewithfel.com) that's 14 usd a year, and in order to be able to use it i have to pay for a premium account on SJ, which you can check right in the webcomic's profile: http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=78971 That's $59 usd
In this particular case, im not running "free of charge", as you assume I do.
I pay those two things for two reasons:
1-I lack the skills to build a decent website myself and just buy a domain and hosting and use it myself, that's why I use smackjeeves.
2-The only way to let the website use it's proper domain is paying for the silly premium account. It's a tad too much for my taste, but that's what I pay for letting others do what I don't know how to do.
Not that it's worth winning an internet fight, right? but i guess it's info the readers should know, in general :I
It's best to give a good representation of the financial situation if you request these sorts of things.
[I learned it from total biscuit, and bay12games, it's apparently very effective.]

It doesnt matter who you are, what dimension you leave in, if you are human or not. Everyone always wants to get the top bunk first.
@That Greek Guy:
I dunno, when I was a kid, I had a bunk bed all to my self. Handy when having friends over. But for day to day? I slept on the bottom bunk. It's a pain in the ass climbing up and down every time you want to get in or out of the top bunk. Plus in the summertime? Heat rises, and the top bunk is right up in the middle of it.
@Kenno Arkkan: And another $20 if you want the fancy donator status at SJ. If you can't muster setting aside $50 to $70 a year, for comic expenses, without relying on the few meager bucks you get from ads, you might need to reevaluate your budget.
Not bashing your comic, just your "I need ad-clicks to keep it going!" mindset.
