These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: MS Paint Adventures
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.
Small Name, Big Ego: Hussie generally doesn't respond well to criticism of Homestuck. And thenthere's this. Subverted in that his fans who don't outright worship ''Homestuck' generally understand his ego trips as jokes.
