The #twokinds chat UNOFFICIAL FAQ

Is Tom here?

Check his nickname in the member list. If his name is not at the top of the list, he's not here. If it is, he is. If there's a [zZz] after his name, he's asleep. In any case, don't disturb him by saying his name. Wait until he posts himself, that's when he wants to chat.


How do I change my name?

To change your name, you type like this:

/nick <insert name here>


When does the comic update?

Whenever Tom is not busy doing something else. Just try to be patient.


I read the whole comic in just three hours! :D

No, you didn't, perhaps you browsed it but you did not read it properly. Also, too many people have already said the same thing. Now, stop bragging and get a life.


What? Why can't I discuss the comic here? This is #twokinds, right?

Uh, sure you can... if you find someone else who wants to... but this is not a place where people come in, chat for an hour and then leave. This is the place for the community behind the comic, and some people have been here for years. All that can be said about the comic has already been said too many times.


Then where can I discuss the comic right now?

Try the forums, there's a link to it at the main page.


What do the little symbols in front of some peoples names mean?

It's a ranking list, & > @ > % > + > you. A + means voice and anything else is an Op. If you want to know more, check out sites like http://www.irchelp.org/


What programs does Tom use to draw with?

Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 2011 and Adobe Photoshop.


Is Tom using a tablet to draw the comic?

He's using a Wacom Cintiq, a tablet with a built-in screen. For traveling he's got a tablet laptop, a Touchsmart tm2t.


Wow, lots of people... but why is the chat so quiet?

Most people aren't here all the time. They're logged in, but they're doing other things. Sometimes they even add something to their nick to tell you what (zZz, gaming, food etc).


y cant i use chatspeak u mean

We've got standards here. Proper spelling, grammar, capitalization and punctuation makes the chat easier to read.


Why do you keep calling me newb/noob?

If you're being called newb it's because you're new. Nothing bad with that. If you're being called noob, however, then you're close to a kick/ban.


When will you stop calling me Newbie/Noobie?

We'll stop calling you Newbie when we feel you've been here long enough, we'll stop calling you Noobie when you start showing respect to the regulars and Ops.


Why are you calling me by the nick I first joined with? How did you know I'm the same person?

There's a thing called a hostmask. It shows us what you really are.


Is there going to be a twokinds store or at least a way to get the posters, books etc?

Yes, but not yet. Check the main site, information will be posted there when it's available (possibly not yet).


Tom, how far have you planned out twokinds?

Tom: I have planned Twokinds to its eventual conclusion, though there are some missing bits inbetween here and there.


Why hasn't there been an update :(

You're the Nth (where N is a too large number) person this month who's asked the same thing, so stop nagging about updates!
