At long last. Could the Concluding Resolution finally be upon us? Hmm, needs more flags.

Arancaytar, Kyrek: I didn't change anything. I might have voiced some opinions I might not have otherwise, but the story was already drawing to a close and I already knew I wasn't going to do Episode 4.

To be fair, though, Dikiyoba never thought Dikiyoba would write Episodes 2 and 3 either. So we might yet see Revenge of the Slith! :P

Dikiyoba - You could always do shorter pieces when the mood strikes you. Coming up with a long episode that pleases everyone is hard. I'm not saying this since I got significant part of Episode 3. Take a rest and write what you feel like.

Nice chapter by the way and I liked what happened to ET and Alorael.

We're all winning. I think.

Honestly, my speculation on "end times" (which seems to have inspired a bandwagon) was directed more at "end of an age". So it's not "everything" that's shutting down, it's just things that are turning this board into a parody of itself.

In Dikiyoba's case, already announcing that there will be no sequel is enough, since the ouroborosis there lies in having the current script be referenced by the current membership, and in turn referencing it. Once the script is finished, and closed, it will become just another piece of Spiderweb art. No more self-reference.

Excellent, Dikiyoba.

And to be honest, I agree with Eph. If you ended right here, no one would blame you. It would be cool if there were more good sequels after this one, but all of your points on the matter are good ones.

Nope. Stop right there. I'd blame her. She is the only one to blame, since she writes the durn things. Of course if other people wrote stories too, or parts of stories, then it would be a little less jarring when things like this happen.

In other news, Diki will change my title after reading this post. :P

As I've said before, bloody good work Dikiyoba. :)

And you know, even if there never is an Episode 4, we'll still have the first three. We're not losing anything, really.

Oh, and the "end times" thing? I'm not gonna say anything about it. I have opinions on it, but I won't share them.

The most fun threads I remember are self-referential threads like this. This might not be a full RP, but it's close enough to give me the same entartainment value. So I don't see any problem with the boards having as many self-referential threads as they've always had. The presence of fun threads doesn't by itself prevent the presence of serious threads.

The thing that does prevent serious threads is when they get derailed by spam or flames, but that is a subject for another time.

EDIT: To Nioca below, you are right, this post was a bit hypocritical. Offtopic material has been removed.

Um, Zeviz? Isn't that more appropriate in this thread? Especially since you just talked about threads getting derailed.

I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

(Applause for three good scripts.)

Like Randomizer said, the possibility for page-long scripts in the future is still there, if and when Diki gets more free time. It doesn't even have to be on SpidWeb: I'd be sad if the only place I could get my poop-flinging monkey fix is Sluggy.

Well, you could do an Episode 4: The wave of newbs, considering the fact that so many are coming.
Many newbs should be refered to by name (like me) if there ever is and Episode 4.
Well somthing is bound to happen with this wave of newbs.
