it actually helped me

I think it's a shame that you only answer flattery questions, and ignore the good criticism. Hiding behind the "this game costs a lot" excuse won't make your game better. Listening to advice will. You are letting your pride come before judgment, and even if the people who think the game could improve a lot (especially in the writing side) are a minority, as a developer, you should listen to them and consider their opinions, not pack them into the "they're complaining about the AU again" pile.

I think the basic concept here is failure to understand criticism and headcanon complaints. For example, if you feel as if a voice is voiced wrong, or a custom story element/writing aspect you feel does not match UNDERTALE, is more along the lines of headcanon/personal taste complaints, and while you may feel that it’s criticism, it does not help me if it’s provided without actual context.

While they’re totally fine, turning something like that around and saying that I do not listen to criticism or feedback is completely not OK, see HERE for a post explaining this act. I’m aware of the difference. If you honest-to-God feel like there’s something you’re upset about, simply stating “I don’t like how you wrote so-and-so,” is absolutely not helpful in any form. If you were to go into detail, provide your viewpoints and some pointers, it would let me see how YOU see the characters. But, once again, telling me that something is not written in a way you like it, or a design is not they way you like it, is not helpful in any form without detailed context.

Pride does not come before judgement in this case, regardless of what you think, I do listen to all criticisms and a lot of aspects of the game have been changed because of it. I’m not sorry that I unfortunately care about my game. There’s plenty of proof on the update logs on various areas that have been altered because someone pointed something out or provided a detailed example of something WITHOUT simply saying “I don’t like that design! Change it!” Recently, one of the larger concerns has been to add a downloadable version, which will be available on the next update.

Lastly, “the game costing too much” is absolutely an impedement. I hate to say it, but there’s no loans or a constant flow of cash coming in to help me develop this game. When a script is written, it’s reviewed by me and the voice actors to ensure it flows correctly. When a design is created, it’s looked over by the team and posted publicly for feedback. When music is created, it’s posted on YouTube for feedback and criticism. This all costs money, and to alter it at the last second or request an alteration costs money, too.

Furthermore, believe it or not, I don’t get many questions regarding it. I answer just about any ask that isn’t off-topic that comes into my inbox. Most questions people ask are in our Discord, anyway. Any sort of questions about the writing mostly stem from “How come Sans is helping Frisk? How come he didn’t kill them!” which is not the direction I’m taking the story and certainly something I’m not revealing because of spoilers.

Do understand that extreme amount of work and hardships that actually /come/ with developing a full-scale game. My team and I work as hard as we can to ensure that UNDERFELL is developed at a pace that’s satisfying yet how WE and YOU, want it to be developed. If this game were developed completely by the community and with absolutely no leadership, it’d come out as a mish-mash of personal headcanons with no story base other than “kill human.” Unfortunately, developers have to deal with people accusing them of not listening, when they in fact, do.

Criticism and feedback are absolutely, without-a-doubt, welcomed. This is something that most, if not all, know about who follow this blog. However, like I stated, it needs to be something with context that the team can understand. A good way to approach me with criticism or feedback is, “Hey, I was thinking that when Papyrus says <dialog>, he maybe should say <dialog> because <reason> and perhaps because <reason>, here’s the <solution>.”

This was a very passive-aggressive question that lead to something that I could actually explain in-depth to people. I’m not sorry it didn’t turn out the way you wanted, anon. With my ending statement, I’m not Toby Fox and UNDERFELL is NOT UNDERTALE. Things will be different, much different. If you do not like this, there are plenty of other games that heavily follow UNDERTALE’s lore.

For example, you can check out Team Spritedgy’s rendition of the UF AU, here: http://gamejolt.com/games/undertale-underfell/151411

It’s more vanilla than what I’m aiming for.

Elle Taiwan:

elletaiwan融化!洛基湯斗森來啦,在 @gucci 秀場外遇到,跟ELLE親切打招呼,這笑容~那個誰,快幫我叫救護車⚡️電暈⚡️ #ELLE時裝週直擊 #MFW #GucciFW17 #AlessandroMichele #tomhiddleston #Gucci #runway #AW17 @twhiddleston

I really tried to translate it. I got something like “ Elle Taiwan melted! Tom Hiddleston came to the Gucci show outside the encounter, kindly greeted Elle and smiled. Someone, fast, help me call the ambulance”. Yeah, I actually think this is pretty accurate…

makeup made me sooo much more comfortable with myself & my face & I wear wear a full face everyday. I used to hate how I looked so I would rarely look in the mirror & since with makeup you're forced to look at yourself I just became more comfortable with my face. Since I actually felt pretty with makeup on it helped me still feel that feeling even when I wasn't wearing it. Bc I was like... If I'm pretty with it on & it doesn't change the way I look that much, why am I not pretty without it??

this is how i feel i used to cringe looking at my face and now i can look at myself and know exactly what makes me cute ya know

Just want to thanks all the amazing ladies here.. when I saw the photo in Jess's tumblr I was sick, really sick, and I wanted to cry so much, but I find the original post of just wrenched and I read all of your comment and I could take a step Back and really saw the pic.. my life is a mess actually and beliving in SC love help me so much.. its kind of ridiculous I know.. so thanks again to all of you, I could face the day by day thanks to your humour, irony and more ❤💙💛💜💚

Oh anon, this makes me want to cry more than the photo. This group of women (maybe we have some men) are the most resilient and loving group. How could we not be, we were brought together by love and the friendships that have grown are amazing! I appreciate the candor and camaraderie that we have here everyday.

Can I ask all the mods a question? My therapist tells me that she's worried that my internet usage is becoming harmful to me , and that there's a difference between an outlet and surrounding myself with negativity? Does running this blog help y'all, and how do you keep it from becoming unhealthy?

I think running these blogs helps me a lot actually. Like my original fiction from 11 years ago had PoC protagonists and that was before I really got into fandom. Getting into fandom had a bad effect on me I was obsessing over white people and white ships and the fanfiction I wrote had no PoC protagonists. Doing this blog has helped me stop obsessing over white characters and I’m writing more characters of color again. The key is to know when to put tumblr away.  That’s why having co mods help me out is so great I’ve started working at a part time job and I don’t have to worry about the blog as much. 

Mods what do you think?
