I agree, I need my females to be a little more fierce, personality may show that, but tattoos is a way better representation

I think the fight between LL and INK is nonsense both styles are awesome, I get why people are complaining since there are only updates for LL but I mean hey, it’s kinda understandable.

  • Is Classic considered gone? No, it’s still alive.
  • If Classic was updated, would you use it? No, sorry
  • How did you feel about Classic when it came out? At first, I was fine with it, then I found it creepy and weird, but there are some good classic stories out there.
  • Does Classic have the best outfits? Yah!!!

  • Do you love limelight? (Like) Love is a strong word.
  • Are Ink fans getting annoying? Yes! I enjoy reading in Ink as well, but the Ink Lovers/Fans (or whatever they want to be called) can be so immature whenever there is an update. I can understand wanting new stuff for an art style that you like but grow up! This happens with each art style, and I’m pretty sure after LL the Episode staff will stop working on that and move on to the next one.
  • Are you tired of this stupid battle that happens 24/7? Again, yes!! Make a story in whatever style that you want!
  • Do you think limelight is suitable for any genre? Yeah, I guess so. All depends on how the writer writes it.
  • What do you think of all the hate limelight gets on Instagram every time they update? Like I said before, immature and childish. People need to stop spamming the comment section with their whining and focus on writing their Ink stories.
  • Is the Ink comedy section even funny anymore? Depending on who is writing them. The style of choice isn’t what makes the story funny, it’s the writer. Tbh, I find most stories (both Ink and LL) in the comedy section to be tried hard and corny.

Is Classic considered gone? I wish I could say no, but…
If Classic were updated, would you use it? Of course! I still use it now, so if it were updated I’d use it even more!
How did you feel about Classic when it came out? I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna admit it. I joined Episode in late, late 2017. I did read a Classic story in that time, however. When I first saw it, I just thought “This looks much cartoonier than the past stories I’ve read. This is probably one of the older ones.”
Does Classic have the best outfits? They have lots of great outfits, but in my personal opinion, I think that Ink has the best outfits as of now.

Personal Opinion: I like Classic. The girls look so adorable with those cartoony faces…

  • Do you love limelight?
    Yes! All of the stories I read these days are in Limelight and I rarely read in ink anymore.

  • Are Ink fans getting annoying?
    Only the unreasonable ones.

  • Are you tired of this stupid battle that happens 24/7?
    Who isn’t? It’s silly and repetitive. I can see how it’s upsetting to authors who prefer to write in ink, but Episode is a business and they need to provide new content in order to keep people interested.

  • Do you think limelight is suitable for any genre?
    I don’t think I see it being suitable for horror or action.

  • What do you think of all the hate limelight gets on Instagram every time they update?
    Ridiculous. What’s the purpose of sending hate when it’s already done?

  • Is the Ink comedy section even funny anymore?
    I don’t check the comedy section in general.

  • Is Classic considered gone?
    Basically extinct now. I don’t see too many classic stories anymore, which is sad! Some of the best stories I’ve read were in classic.

  • If Classic was updated, would you use it?
    Probably? Depends on what updates are provided. There’s not a lot of options for skin and facial features, and I didn’t feel like there were a lot of animations you could use either.

  • How did you feel about Classic when it came out?
    Didn’t like it the first time I saw it. I thought the characters looked a lot like paper dolls, but it eventually grew on me and I ended up writing my first story in classic :blush:

  • Does Classic have the best outfits?
    Not sure if I would go as far as saying best, but a lot of the outfits are definitely better than Limelight. I think ink probably has the best outfits. Although I will say that I think classic has a lot of the better hairstyles.

Some are, but not all. I think style stans are annoying in general

Do you think limelight is suitable for any genre?
I don’t see why not? You can make it work, although we still lack a lot of assets.
What do you think of all the hate limelight gets on Instagram every time they update?
I don’t :nail_care:t2:
But in all seriousness, the complaints aren’t going to change anything- LL is the newest style and that’s that. We’ve been told many times that INK won’t be updated. However, if people want to be upset, then they have that right. I can see where they’re coming from.
Is the Ink comedy section even funny anymore?
A lot of the stories in Comedy either don’t fit the genre or just aren’t funny (imo), regardless of style… so I can’t say.
Is Classic considered gone?
What’s Classic? :wink:
If Classic was updated, would you use it?
Probably not, sorry
How did you feel about Classic when it came out?
I wasn’t here :skull:
Does Classic have the best outfits?
I’ve never opened the portal to see their full closet, so I’m basing my opinion off of what I’ve seen in stories and in screenshots: I think they’ve got good clothes for what the style is. Classic is completely different from INK and LL, so it’s pointless to compare imo

    I think ink lovers are more vocal than limelight lovers - they are more clear about their distaste for limelight, than the LL fans are about supporting it

  • Are you tired of this stupid battle that happens 24/7?
    I mean… I guess. I don’t really care and nowadays it’s nowhere near as bad as it used to be

  • Do you think limelight is suitable for any genre?
    Nope. To me it looks super weird with scary stories since their scared animations look a little strange to me, but that’s me.

  • What do you think of all the hate limelight gets on Instagram every time they update?
    I almost never see limelight hate on their page.

  • Is the Ink comedy section even funny anymore?
    I personally think so.

  • Is Classic considered gone?
    Yes, sorry classic lovers.

  • If Classic was updated, would you use it?
    No. Again, sorry classics! I just personally don’t like the style

  • How did you feel about Classic when it came out?
    I wasn’t here for that :laughing:

    Yes, I do actually have to agree on this point. The hair as well.

  • Is Classic considered gone? Pretty much it’s hard to find stories in that style
  • If Classic was updated, would you use it? Nope but it would be nice so that people who adore classic can still read it
  • How did you feel about Classic when it came out? Wasn’t here
  • Does Classic have the best outfits?
    Not In my opinion
  • Do you love limelight? It’s alright
  • Are Ink fans getting annoying? Nope not to me but it matters if you’re going specifically on an ink thread, then no your on a thread that you shouldn’t really spend time on. If on limelight thread and they whine then yes.
  • Are you tired of this stupid battle that happens 24/7? If it’s hateful or they are going on limelight threads to hate yes. If they are on an ink thread and say that not really. People have opinions it’s gonna happen no matter what because people get upset.
  • Do you think limelight is suitable for any genre?
    Duh- Any style for any genre. The story is where style matters when you dream up ideas in it you most likely have a style in mind. I would personally go with that.
  • What do you think of all the hate limelight gets on Instagram every time they update?
    Not on Instagram
  • Is the Ink comedy section even funny anymore?
    Yes and No
    There is nothing “funny” because humor is subjective.

Extra When limelight is replaced with a newer style, don’t complain about limelight not getting updates. I hate when that happens because you become what you hate and become hypocrites.

Bump!

Yes!
Are Ink fans getting annoying?
I think INK fans are getting a taste of their own medicine and they don’t like it :smirk: considering how vocal they were when INK first came out for the classic fans to just shut up and accept the fact that classic is dead and gone.
Are you tired of this stupid battle that happens 24/7?
Sure am :unamused:
Do you think limelight is suitable for any genre?
I think it’s really versatile, yeah. Also, I kind of like how in LL we have different “reaction” animations that can really add a lot to a scene. I absolutely DESPISE the “react_surprised” animation in INK :imp:

Haven’t really seen it much so can’t say.

Some authors OVERuse the “shush” and “fingersnap” animations at the expense of any true comedy.

I HAVE come across some real comedic gems in INK, though. A Flawless Plan by MEA and anything by KaylaS, for example.

I’m late to this but I always am, so here we go.

This kind of shade exists on every single game that has existed for more than 5 years and has had any major art change, for some reason.
“Ugh, I don’t like the new Neopets art, the old art is so much more dynamic.
“Ummm… I’m not some RS3 fanboy, I only play Old School, go back to your rainbow cosmetic items lmaoo”
And I honestly can’t figure out the psyche. Is it nostalgia? Pretending to be different? Are these the same hipsters who only listen to vinyl? I honestly do not know.
And we’re probably going to go through this entire charade if another art style is released in 2 more years presuming Episode lasts that long. “Ugh, Crescendo is so pretentious and overrated, Limelight was the golden age of Episode.”

  • Do you love limelight?
    Helllll yea brother.
  • Are Ink fans getting annoying?
    Every time I think “INK stans aren’t crazy, it’s just an art preference” I wind up on the forums watching an INK stan cuss out someone who mentioned that INK isn’t being updated anymore.
  • Are you tired of this stupid battle that happens 24/7?
    If people could just like what they like, that’d be swell.
  • Do you think limelight is suitable for any genre?
    Yeah, it’s just an art style.
  • What do you think of all the hate limelight gets on Instagram every time they update?
    I don’t use Instagram lol, but again, let people enjoy things.
  • Is the Ink comedy section even funny anymore?
    If the only thing funny in your story is that it’s in INK, congratulations, your story isn’t funny. :innocent:
  • Classic
    I can’t say much about Classic, since it was way before my time. I tried to read a classic story for the first time and nearly peed myself laughing. But once I got over the shock value, I’ve seen some nice outfits in Classic that could be remade.

There’s a secret way to wear LL clothes: first, you set your story style to Limelight… :smirk::joy:
If you say INK is better, take it as it is lmao. Ya can’t say “INK is better… but I want that from Limelight, and that, and also that…”
