Scoob and Shag is a far worse and more embarassing read than TGT because it's also a comedy webcomic about widely-known cartoon characters that slowly takes itself more and more seriously before becoming about fighting and going super saiyan, but is made by an actual adult with a human brain.

Just as there are panels where you can notice that the artist is better than they are pretending, there's dialogue where they're cleverer than they are pretending.

Of course I say this with the sheer loving hubris of someone who's just wandered into a near decade long phenomenon.

Hello everyone, I'm the person who made the tailsgetstrolled.org website and put together the art team for the new chapter. Been following this thread since back in 2012 and finally decided to post, so I have a lot to say, but I'll try to keep it short:

  • I'm in regular contact with Lazerbot and his brother. They've recently regained access to the Internet and are working on stuff, including TGT-related things. As some of you may be happy to hear, they've realized that some of their scenes (the shounen battles, etc.) drag on too long and are planning to write future content in a more succinct way with better pacing. They also seem to be more open to fan criticism these days.

  • I also helped Lazerbot get his old DA account back in an effort to help redirect people to places where they can read the whole series. One of the most popular pages about TGT online, the Know Your Meme page, linked to Lazerbot's hacked DeviantArt for years, which created confusion as to where the comic was actually hosted (before I made the site). Anyway, when I got his account back, I was able to look through all of the PMs the hacker sent to people, and found this one which I think you guys will appreciate:


    tl;dr he hacked Lazerbot because he was mad at SA. lol.

  • In response to people saying that the new artist(s) are giving Coyote too much emotion, Lazerbot already released the script for Chapter 23, and it calls for Coyote to show emotion. Miladox is a real threat to him (as The MSJ said), which wasn't really the case with Demaro, hence the change. Also, keep in mind since I'm in contact with Lazerbot, he is supervising the whole thing, and everything is canan.

  • FunMerrania is mostly correct. In addition to being poor, he's moved around a lot too, which IIRC has been brought up in this thread before. Lazerbot also says he was homeschooled, which is why he didn't know how to spell and used incorrect grammar in the earlier chapters.

  • I remember someone a while back wondering about Lazerbot's take on the Trump presidency. Trump actually appeared in TGT on Page 16 of Chapter 22 in 2017. And Lazerbot is not a MAGA chud, he seems pretty apolitical to me.

  • Aside from the Tails Gets Trolled website, I'm also working on an animated adaptation of TGT with a friend, previews of which can be viewed here. (note that it's a work in progress and some of the voices/music are placeholders and some animation is unfinished)

  • We're still looking for artists on the new chapter to help us get out more than one page a month (lol). So if you're interested in contributing and are reliable, feel free to inquire about helping out on the Discord (which Lazerbot and his brother also frequent). Same goes for anyone who wants to contribute to the animated series.

That's about it. If anyone has any questions, feel free to let me know.

    In other words, Coyote could have defeated Demaro from the beginning, but played around with him, whereas Miladox is a real threat to him (as The MSJ said), hence the change. Also, keep in mind since I'm in contact with Lazerbot, he is supervising the whole thing, and everything is canan.

I guess something is better than nothing, but “having better artists do tails gets trolled” seriously misunderstands the appeal of tails gets trolled

Trumps Baby Hands posted:

This was pretty much my thinking behind it, yeah. The intent wasn't “having better artists do tails gets trolled”. It had been years without any new content and Lazerbot seemed to lack motivation in continuing it, and was also having problems with Internet access as I alluded to before. Plus, he had already written the script for this chapter, so I asked him if it'd be okay for someone to take over for him, at least temporarily. The good thing is that the issues I mentioned seem to be resolved now.

To be fair to Lazerbot though, he has seriously improved his artwork since the beginning of the comic. But he still has his own unique style which can't be replicated. Thankfully, there is a possibility he will return to art duties after Chapter 23.

Also, this fight has been going on for most of my 20s as well. It started in November 2012. (at least they weren't fighting the whole time throughout the comic)

Looking through the PMs again, here are some more interesting tidbits:
  • He tried to phish Tom Preston/Andrew Dobson's DA password (which didn't work, apparently)
  • He gave DA user "LazerbotHatesGays" the login info to Lazerbot's YouTube. I tried it myself and unfortunately they must have changed the password, but they don't seem to have made any changes to the account.
  • Another PM where he mentioned his grudge against SA, and that he's apparently a brony and balding:



  • He was going to post this "edgy" journal entry but didn't finish it:



  • On DA you can view deleted comments, so I saw all of the comments he deleted that were making fun of him, including this one:

    quote:

    Ponygiotis Vavetsikas was browsing Encyclopedia Dramatica while circlejerking with his friends in IRC. He noticed an article called "Tails gets trolled" that was all about a weird-looking comic. "Hah!" he muttered "that looks like poo poo Chris-chan would make! I'll gently caress with him and make him the next Chris-chan!". Soon, his head was filled with images of people triumphantly expanding on the TGT article about how an EPIC WIN troll named Ponygiotis Vavetsikas managed to get some aspie loser comic maker to have a lulz-worthy meltdown. It might even get on the front page! There might even be a wiki dedicated to chronicling Lazerbot and TGT, just like with Chris-chan! He would be famous all around the internet as the guy that managed to make the new Chris-chan!

    Soon, he found the creator of TGT and began harassing him on Facebook in between wanking to dreams of cumming inside Flutter Shy's tight pussy. In fact, the more he came to loving Flutter Shy, the more he enjoyed "trolling"! It was a match made in heaven; he'd be able to pleasure himself sexually and emotionally! Lazerbot didn't seem to give a poo poo, but the payoff would all be worth it, or so Ponygiotis Vavetsikas thought.

    Finally, the day came; he managed to get Lazerbot's account password. It was time to make history! He hijacked lazerbot's account, then began posting fake TGT comics. However, his plans did not work; Lazerbot didn't give a poo poo, and his fans all knew within an hour or so that he was hacked! There was no meltdown from Lazerbot, no screaming, no crying, and nothing interesting to put on ED, much less make a separate wiki out of. This was not what he wanted at all! Desperate, he continued his hijacking, but nobody was interested!

    What could've happened? Lazerbot art looked just like that "enjoyable human being" Chris-chan's; he should've been just as immature as Chris! All he got was a flippant response from Lazerbot about the hacking; something he wasn't expecting at all. Frustrated, Ponygiotis Vavetsikas began jerking it even more to MLP porn while getting off the idea of killing Muslims that live in his glorious homeland, Greece. He kept Lazerbot's account for a little while longer, but his mind was no longer filled with fantasies about being a troll superstar. The only people that cared about him were his pals on IRC. Maybe there would be another person he could phish and get a reaction out of. Maybe. Maybe not.

    His moment of glory had been taken away from him; something he would never forget.

    He also banned several people from commenting on the account. For someone who considered himself an "epic troll" he seemed pretty sensitive to people trolling him.

I don't know about portug3se, but there's definitely slang words and a kind of 'textlish' way of writing in Spanish that could be used to effect.
Like you might say "Que haces"/"what are you doing?" Or in shorthand textspeek say "Q haz"/"whachu doin'?"
