Feedback poll

I mentioned in the last entry that it's Ponyville's 2nd Anniversary!
(PLEASE DO check that last entry if you missed it, as I posted a new comic too! I'd really like your comments :))

It's been perhaps an entire year since I last posted a feedback poll for PV's readers - YOU! I'm finding that the strip is at a pivot point here: I'd like to make it something better than it is, and to do that I very much need your input.

Please take the time to fill out the below poll. I can't emphasize enough (with hand gestures and everything) how important your input today will be to the future of the strip. PLEASE BE CANDID, and don't be afraid to give honest criticism where I ask for it. You will not hurt my feelings; in fact, getting criticism is an excellent way to help improve the comic, which I want to do.

Thank you all again for sticking with PV through its changes and challenges. You have made the strip something special for me.


Now, to the poll! Please feel free to speak openly in this entry's comments, too, if you ran out of room in the text boxes or if you had something else to add that I may not have asked about.


Poll #903539 Ponyville Feedback Poll #3 (Mini)

One of *my* New Years goals is to update Ponyville more frequently/regularly. However, I find myself busy with yet another semester at school. Would you favor more strips at a diminished quality of art, or would you prefer the same level of artwork quality with less frequent strips?

More comics with possibly less visual appeal

Something that another or other comics I read do that Ponyville should do too, might be:
