Is joe threatening on donate banner?

Postby Tempest » 01 Nov 2010, 09:34

Well, I just saw him saying "this shit ain't free, donate!!" on the main page, and I am a bit concerned about it. I mean, joe is great in the comic context, a funny and powerful asshole in a post-apocalyptic world is cool, and we do laugh it off when he orders, threatens and looks angrily at the other characters, but when it is directed at you, it is a bit weird I think.

I mean, I might be the only one that's concerned, so other opinions are highly welcome.

Heh heh, thanks for bringing this up! I'd also like to know what people think. If people feel threatened, I'd much rather let Bernie do the asking politely :D

Mind if I edit your thread and make it a poll?

The question will be: Do you feel threatened (and/or negatively affected) by Joe (the character) rudely asking for donations?

I'll also post this question in the next blog update :)

Ahaha. I... guess I could see the potential? I dunno. I think people will get that he's an ass. Maybe have Bernie and Joe argue in the ad?

I changed it :D

Thanks for letting me know! I would never want to offend or threaten anyone with something like a donate link, whether it be 1 person or 1,000,000 :)

Haha, I found it pretty funny to be the center of Joe's rage, but yeah, if it's bothering other people I'm not gonna defend it.

Took me a while to realize you weren't joking. No I don't feel threatened by Joe being funny by staying in character. I actually think I would have an awful lot of trouble if I freaked out every time I heard the word "shit".

I am talking about the subconscious level and the feelings generated from it, not the conscious judgements or analysis. I felt that it will not encourage people to donate(because he looks aggressive), so that's why I started the thread.
