Last Journal of 2012

...and thus 2012 comes to pass


another year passes and what a year it was.  I moved to my new home in January, and began working as a Programming instructor.  I'm living on my own, and doing much better than I was doing back in Bermuda.  I've met new people and made lots of friends.

2012 has been a year filled with lots of cool stuff, and I hope that next year will be even cooler.  I personally feel like I've gone ahead, and improved in my art thanks to having such good buddies, like Grose and Ether often help me with improving my character anatomy work and in the end motivating me to improve.

My personality and views on many things have changed,  as all people change with time.  I don't look down and feel sad, or seethe  with anger at the idiots that plague my inbox with hate mail and death threats, as I've come to realize that they're just angry man children whining over something they feel entitled too.  My view on these individuals is now one of pity.  Some people like to call them trolls, but I've come to identify internet trolls as individuals who simply utilize the anonymity of the internet to be pranksters, and just want to have some fun by inserting their random nonsensical comments every once in a while.  Those kinds of trolls I have deep respect and love for them, for it is natural to behave like that online.  The "other" kind of "trolls" are the ones that I pity.  I'm talking about the online bullies, that have a personal vendetta against me, that hound "troll" sites like lulz.net, paws.ru (does that place even exist still?), rule34, and e621.net, bullies that simply wait for someone to post my art, for their chance to being smearing and insulting me thinking that I don't search those sites for feed back, cowards that don't have the stones to face me in civilized conversation and hide behind the mask of anonymity.  Those who my good fans call them "trolls" are not really that.  They're bullies, they're what's wrong with the online society, heck even 4chan anons don't sink so low.  In any case I pity them, since pity is the only thing they can really amount too.  

It's a shame that whenever my art is uploaded anywhere other than here on inkbunny, the first comment usually goes with "Is BSC updated yet?" or "when is he going to update?" or "can't wait for the finished version", or heck "is this going to be in the game?".  Individuals incapable of understanding that I'm much more than BSC.

I must be honest tough Babysitting Cream is important to me, it's the realization of a dream I thought wouldn't get past a sketchbook, but it did.   Thanks to my dear friends Avian, Grose, and even Lost's coaching, It's turned into a damn fine game.  I will continue to work on it, as long as I'm physically able.  As much as many tell me to simply "finish" it quickly and move along, I won't, It's special to me, and I won't give up on it until I'm satisfied with it.  I'm tired of version numbers and deadlines and the self entitled morons who watch for them or hit F5 frantically for hours looking for an update.   You want my advice?  check weekly, on Sundays or Mondays, but not daily, If there's an update (will delve into that work soon) good, happy days, spread the word, but if there's not, move along, wait for next week, and so on and so forth, I can't come to understand why that's so difficult for some people.

now to define update (google it you dipshits)

up·date  
/ˌəpˈdāt/
Verb
Make (something) more modern or up to date.
Noun
An act of bringing something or someone up to date, or an updated version of something.
Synonyms
modernize

some smartypants have been incessantly ranting that I've failed everyone by not updating the game on december 25th like I "promised" I would on the badly drawn comic I did.

funny that

1. they took the comic seriously.

2. they where expecting the ACTUAL FLASH to be updated

3. franticaly hit F5 for hours non-stop expecting the flash file to be updated, EVEN AFTER I WROTE A JOURNAL WITH THE ACTUAL UPDATE!!! AND INSTRUCTIONS!!!

on december 24th I sent Avian the twenty pictures that would be added for version 1.0 of BSC, I SENT THE PICTURES TO AVIAN!! I DID MY PART!! go ahead, ask him.  

on december 25th I gave an Update AS PROMISED, I wrote a journal and even made a template submission indicating the progress.  

I kept my word, I gave an update, so the haterfags that are incessantly and unnecessarily ranting that I missed a deadline like I always do are wrong, mistaken and absolutely bonkers.  I didn't say anything about updating the game file on the 25th, point me in the direction of a journal or a comment I made indicating it...you can't right, then It's settled, stop spreading lies about it,  because the more you do the more you prove you don't have the stones to face me.  I've said it once and I'll say it again

aval0nX_studios@hotmail.com is adress, you have a problem with me, some sort of idiotic vendetta, polish your bloody stones for once, add me give me a call and say it to my face.  Don't hide away like vermin, grow a backbone for once.  If you have a problem with me say it to my face, heck I miss Killahanna, at least he had the decency to face me directly.

to all my other loyal fans, who understand, and respect my art and myself beyond BSC, relax I'm still here and I'll continue to be here, for a long time, I won't just run away in shame like some others do.

The comments I made to go bother Avian (as some people have been insulting me, calling me a jerk for doing that)  where not made in a personal way,  Avian knows I was joking with him and he got the joke, but some people are far to dense to understand that.  Funny enough how he was overwhelmed with it all, for once he felt the backlash of stupidity I have to deal with on a daily basis.

In the end, 2012 was a wonderful year, I have great expectations for 2013, and beyond, the world didn't end, It's time to move forward.  To my loyal fans see you next stream, to the trolls keep doing what you do, It gives me publicity,  and to the haterfags, polish your stones, grow a backbone and face me directly.

for those who don't follow my streams, I'll try to give more written updates, and to those who have simply given up and left I'm flipping you off right now.

love you all and I wish you happy holidays and a very happy New Year.

sincerely

I think the cause of the shitstorm was that you counted on everything going right, and forgot that, if something can go wrong, something will.

I know the feeling of the haterfags you're talking about. Seriously, their only purpose in life is complaining about the artist's work >:T
And I totally agree with feeling just pity for them. When you'd start hating them or complaining you wouldn't be any better than them, and I'm sure you stand above a behavior like this.

Let them hate and nag, take it easy and enjoy the next year~

Happy New Year and all best.
One question from me : Why do you even care about haterfags, trolls etc. They do exist to feed on you, and that's their role to play. I'm sure you are making it for all this ppl who waiting and loving your work/art. That's what in life is important- few ppl who you made happy with what you do. Others who don't care about, or hate are just a not important. You can never make all ppl happy, so don't try to.

Okay, I'm just being silly now. Can't wait to see the new update, and loved your new picture on the 25th. I would say "don't work too hard" but that would just be crazy talk. DO work too hard... get the update out. I would say in the next hour and forty-five minutes works best for me, but that would be mildly unrealistic.

Don't feed the trolls guys; they're hungry and if you don't give them the attention they want then they find some other place to hang out which does.

lol I am absolutely blown away by people... I check for updates maybe once a month, unless it looks like their will be an update soon in which case it goes to once a week. I just dont get it. BC is a great game(been following for a couple years now), but come on. If you want to play a game play an xbox or PS3 and if you want porn.. well your on the fucking internet type something in! their are literally thousands of sites.

You don't rush games. Especially free games. Any game that's worth it is rarely rushed.

Well imo, if you take the time to make the damn game in the first place, who are we, who play and enjoy it, to rush you?
Especially since you made such a GREAT game.

Don't listen to the haters Avalon, your an Artist!

Have a great new years peeps!

I occasionally check your page for new art, so regardless of the game status, the general art you've uploaded so far is fantastic, and you've shown a lot of improvement in both character design and composition. Thank you for sharing what you have, I'm glad that life is working out well for you, and Happy New Year bro!

Don't listen to the idiots, Avalon. Quality is far better than quick updating, especially for a game that is special to you. I have the same situation with a series of Visual Basic adventure programs that I can't stand to see a single mistake in, even a minor thing like typos. Like you mentioned, I also must keep working with my programs until I am satisfied. There is no need to rush such a great game, you know what they say, haste makes waste. Good luck with everything on the game and in life, Avalon. I Will definitely love the next version, no matter when it comes out.

Happy New Year master! Just ignore those "bulies" and trolls... they are just useless people ... as a fan I think that its better not to rush things up on BSC ! take your time and above all? Have a really good and fun time making it! We can wait as long as you need! Your not a game making machine... your a human so dont overwork your self to meet up with the expectation of those impatient "fans" .... Happy new year again and happy holidays master!

New year and new hope that we will get more fun, sexy, cool, lovely art from you.  You have a huge heart, keep it that way.  We love what you do, and the trolls and bullies, well who cares about trolls and bullies,  your art stands up above the criticism of such creatures.

Death threats? Post their contacts to the public. What they going to do? Sue you for violating their privacy? Even though they threaten your life? I wonder which is a bigger crime privacy threat vs. life threats?

I doubt many people sent Aval0n a message reading "Hello I am Dean Richards of Omaha, Nebraska, and I am going to murder you with a shovel".
And since Aval0n has weathered this storm of constant harassment for upwards of a year, I doubt a few poignantly-worded messages to random internet addresses would have an impact

I don't understand the second point "2. they where expecting the ACTUAL FLASH to be updated". However you read the comic, they talk about "BSC game update". In other words a patch. Now if the comic was just for giggles, nice one! but it didn't occur to me that it was and I got confused. No reason to bash the author thou but he should have seen it coming if he read the comments on the comic. If he noticed that no one got the joke he might have put a notice to not indirect "promise" something.

Lets keep it civil people. Everyone is waiting for the game to patch but lets not turn to assholes. If it will take 15 years like Duke Nukem Forever then so be it. Being rude, sending death threats and such won't speed up the development.

Thats all I had on my chest :)

The way you still react to any of these posts shows how little you have actually changed. I have no problem with the updates or any of that, but your attitude certainly hasn't changed from that of a victim.
NewDimension
5 years, 8 months ago
It must take a tall ladder to get up on that soap box, Aval0n. I don't know how you can keep believing that none of the anger directed toward you is justified. You look down on others, expect them to simply forgive you for continual breaches of trust, and generally carry yourself in the manner of a man who has no idea how a decent person acts. I can understand that the update never materialized, as I long ago lost faith in this project, and honestly do not believe all of the art is actually done. But what bothers me is that you laugh at your fans, stating that they should never have expected the update and their continual reloading of your page, constantly ending in disappointment, is somehow funny. You claim that you do the spiteful things you do to injure trolls, but fail to realize that every time you shoot yourself in the foot by further alienating the portion of your fanbase that, against all odds, checks regularly for updates, the trolls are the ones winning. I feel sorry for the people who stick around, imagining that stroking your ego more vigorously will cause your pace to speed up from the dead stop it seems to have fallen into. Say what you will, respond however you feel you must. I do not mind, and likely will not even see it until i return in a few more months to witness the continual dearth of progress this project has been nigh-perpetually mired in. I wish I would be proven wrong. I hope against hope. But I know that the only way I will see a finished project on this game is if it is taken up by the community and all of those hopeless, unorganized assholes manage to work together long enough to get anything done. I do not believe I am owed this game, nor do I have any wishes for you to finish it. Why should I waste my wishes, when charitable donations and support by a fanbase whose core I could not define as anything less than zealotic can do nothing to move you to any real action? And with that, my annoyance at your constantly unpleasant demeanor for the last year-and-a-half's worth of posts has abated, and I shall take my leave.

You sir, must remember he is doing this for free.
NewDimension
5 years, 8 months ago
i have not forgotten it is free. did you read my post? I said several times that i wish it would be completed, but have written this game off as the interminally unfinished work it has thus far proven to be. I am pointing out that I expect nothing from Aval0n and am bothered by the excuses he makes and the way he treats people. You, like strike1232, are apparently becoming so used to calling everyone trolls and constantly defending Aval0n's unpleasent behavior that you do it even when somebody gives legitimate criticism of the game or the author in a reasonable and mild-toned fashion.

And look at your compatriot, strike. Does he respond to any criticism or even make it seem like he read the post? No, he immediately calls me a 'hater troll' for stating an opinion opposed to his stoic enabling of Aval0n's actions and calls for everyone to plug their ears and never consider why anyone would keep posting "you'll have it done lickety-split, i'm sure" after every journal update since 2011, despite constant backsliding, and doing such things as LAUGHING at his supporters for assuming that 'update' meant 'update' instead of 'not update'.

Who does Aval0n hurt most when he gets riled up by negative comments and claims to be holding his game hostage because of that? The people who continually support him despite his attitude, or the people who are so disenfranchised with him that they already don't expect the game/ people who are riling him up on purpose for the express intent of watching him throw a tantrum?

How do people continue to support him when he says "i'm much more level headed now and everything is good" and then almost immediately calls everyone who was waiting because he said he hoped to have it up two weeks ago at this point 'dipshits' and tells everyone who is dissatisfied that they can fuck off, while constantly shifting blame, parsing words, and acting like a child arguing on the playground.

I'm sure this post will be met with the same head-in-the-sand mentality as my last, but that's ok. I'm not posting for you, Aval0n, or anybody else. I'm just posting because I'm bored and the way Aval0n acts legitimately bothers me.
