So something I was talking about with a reader called Hakan got me thinking about piracy and group behaviours. In a large group, if something requires the involvement of a large part of the group, most of the group will leave it to the rest of the group. The best example of this would be voting.

I'm trying to get more Nekolytes involved in sharing this site. One person won't make much difference, a hundred people makes a big difference. We're currently at number 40 in the Top Web Comics list with 1,729 votes for the month so far. That works out at about 80 votes a day, so that works out as about 5% of the audience voting (which is actually pretty good by the standards of these thing, so thanks Nekolytes! You guys are awesome). If 50% of the audience voted every day, we'd be in the number 1 spot. 10% would get us into the top 20. 15% we'd be in the top 10

It's free advertising for the site, and it's the online equivalent of leaving a tip. It ties in to the whole 'if enough people use adblock it damages the site' issue, only from the other end.

Economics You should be an Economist (or maybe not). This is the kind of phenomena we study (equilibrium of multi-agent models).

XD I love Neko's face in the voting incentive today. I see what he's saying, but I just can't stop focusing on how funny it looks when he's saying it XD

a quick question did you ever re-open avatar commissions? I still really want one by you, on a more relevant and less selfish note, I like how neko still refers to the ashes as future-alice X3

Odd, thought I had posted a reply about the avatars.

@Morena: Looks good! Generally speaking, using images from NtK as web avatars is OK.

@shadow7127: I'm not doing avatar commissions at the moment. I got too absorbed in the requests and they were taking up too much time. After a couple of late nights where I did a drawing request and had to stay up to finish the comic, I put the requests on the back burner. I'll probably get back to it once I have more time.
