What's the best way to contact you privately?

Twitter DMs, discord (if we share a server), retrospring (for minor notes), or any of the socials in my card at

why does the unofficial homestuck collection have plugins enabled by default, like hussie's commentary and the transcripts? i feel like hussie's commentary especially ruins new readers' experiences, arguably more than the official website does.

The web version has a handful of mods I personally find valuable enabled by default, both to make sure everything's working correctly and because the "unofficial" status of the web beta lets me tweak things so it works well out-of-the-box with my recommended settings. HOWEVER, the commentary mod is only enabled by default if you explicitly turned New Reader Mode off, for obvious reasons.

Trying to do a re-read of HS using the browser version of the unnoficial collection, the the multi panel WV externals seem to be broken. Like waywardvagabond/recordsastutteringstep and
waywardvagabond/anunsealedtunnel and etc. The pannels for these parts are not loading.

It seems some of the gifs and smaller images like pesterchum statuses and "Sweet catch" gif also seem to be broken on the browser version of UHSC.

This sounds like a known issue in an earlier version of the site that should be fixed now. Try clearing your browser cache.

if I see a typo in your website what should I do? I saw one earlier but I've forgotten where it is. Alexander Wales has a cool function on his blog site to address them.

Usually people just leave a comment, although you could send an ask here and I'd see that too. What's Alexander Wales' solution? I took a quick look at his blog and didn't see anything

The blog link in your bio (with the im. prefix) is giving a "server not found error

Was bill bolin right all along?

about andrew hussie's unprofessionalism? that, too, is a mystery

Anonymous Coward asked 4 months ago

Do you think Andrew is jealous of Toby Fox right now?

neither of them have to work another day in their life so all I know is I'm jealous of both of them

Gio, are you going to implement modern thin scrollbars in the UHSC? :O

By default the scrollbar is the OS default. Alternative scrollbar styling isn't current on the main project roadmap although you're free to make a request for it. I believe you can style scrollbars with a mod using CSS though.

How do you have hope for the future when it feels like everything you value is under attack?

Hello! Just wanted to let you know that I think the charts on some of your blog pages appear to be broken. I'm rereading some of your Homestuck articles. An example is the timeline on, I remember it working not long ago but now renders as pure text:

title The Odd Gentlemen & Hiveswap
dateFormat YYYY-MM ..."


Anyway, I really enjoy your articles!

What is your succession plan for the things you maintain?

I must never die.

No, but this varies a lot depending on what you're talking about. Stuff like UHC (which I'm guessing is what you're thinking about) is already open-source and accepts contributions, or it can be forked off and maintained by someone else if we ever stop working on it.
