Poor old Lines. He is ever so keen and has been asking his DB questions for a while. All answered now on the FAQ. However, it does bring up a worthwhile point about how long it takes me to answer all your comments.
Firstly, let me assure you that I do read everything. My trouble comes when I need to find the time to reply to them all properly. If I’ve not been working on a game for a couple of months then I’m very likely to be less than 100% certain on the answer, and I’d rather be right than wrong. This means that I often need to spend quite a while checking references before I can write the few lines of reply. Remember that I don’t just know the final printed version of the rules as you do, but every iteration that preceded them. I’ve also generally done the same with one, two or more games since, and so things can easily get muddled.
Also remember that this site is done for my amusement in my spare time rather than as part of my job. Certainly, if it was part of my job then I’d need paying for the many hours it takes up. As it stands, I am reorganising my time to hopefully allow me to catch up with the backlog of comments (for which I apologise) and then stay on top of things. At least, that’s the plan. We’ll have to see how that pans out.
So what am I’m saying here?
I suppose I’m asking for you to keep posting your comments and joining in the discussions. I will get back to you as fast as I can. I fully intend to carry on posting new stuff (every day if possible) and trying to keep up with all the interesting debates that do continue in some of the older threads. Those discussions are what makes this entertaining for me too 🙂
So stay tuned. It’s only going to get better!
