- Archive Panic: Oh dear lord. If you are foolish enough to start ANY of these, but particularly Homestuck, only start it early in the morning on a Saturday. Do not, under any circumstances, let Homestuck's slow start lull you into a false sense of security about your ability to put it down.
- It's Popular, Now It Sucks: Not the comics themselves, but the suggestion boxes, originally one of the core ideas for the comics, have ended up like this. As MSPA's popularity increased, the huge pool of suggestions basically led to Andrew doing what he was going to do anyway, only much slower that he could if he didn't have suggestion boxes. Now they're shut indefinitely except for naming new player characters (i.e. the Trolls) - and every time they are opened for that, they crash the site. The story's a lot tighter and quicker paced without them, but it's still sad to see popularity kill a neat idea.
Andrew on Formspring: At this point I pretty much despise the suggestion box.
- Tough Act to Follow: Andrew has confirmed he will continue to make material long after MSPA is forgotten. Homestuck is going to be quite the act to top.
- Screwed By The Creator: Bard's Quest ended before it was finished, primarily due to the fact that the story's oddly-updated Choose Your Own Adventure paths would not only be hard for viewers to keep up with, but it would inevitably end up following a single one, defeating the purpose of keeping a story in that genre.
