[nerd] Actually Gaimen's ex-wife was from the Twin Cities, when Gaimen separated from her he went to Wisconsin, that might have just be coincidence of timing though and unrelated.  And she might have family there too. [/nerd] 

Just goes to show you can't trust Wikipedia even on things like that!

Lol everyone needs to google the lindy effect now

in regards to rothfuss

Well geez... that’s not promising

Quote

With human projects and ventures we have another story. These are often scalable, as I said in Chapter 3. With scalable variables ... you will witness the exact opposite effect. Let's say a project is expected to terminate in 79 days, the same expectation in days as the newborn female has in years. On the 79th day, if the project is not finished, it will be expected to take another 25 days to complete. But on the 90th day, if the project is still not completed, it should have about 58 days to go. On the 100th, it should have 89 days to go. On the 119th, it should have an extra 149 days. On day 600, if the project is not done, you will be expected to need an extra 1,590 days. As you see, the longer you wait, the longer you will be expected to wait.[5]

I mean... what is Pats number up to now?!!?

Am I the only who thinks the recent shots at Rothfuss are gratuitous and tasteless?

No. Frankly I can't wrap my mind around the impulse. And I'm, like, vitriol personified.

Depends on which ones. Some of the stuff in this thread has seemed quite negative and oddly strong ... and not a natural flow of the conversation.

Sure, but Rothfuss suggesting that people asking for updates “fuck off and die” wasn’t the epitome of civil discourse either. No heroes here.

You might be right but it would be helpful to be specific.

Well, maybe those from lysmonger over the past couple of pages? Might have been more but I can't be bothered to look over the entire thread. I take my fair share of shots at Rothfuss too, but recently its been very petty.

Sure, but I thought that we were a bunch of decent people here. I just thought that we were better than this.  Its a new level of low that makes me want to quit this thread to be honest. Like, really?

Look at it this way. If I, the etiquette doyenne of the Board (by acclamation) told you that I have not yet found the level of discourse to be upsetting, would you -

a. Consider that there might be one or two people whom you might want to put on “ignore”,

b. Think of exploring other threads in the forum to perhaps find a discussion more to your liking?

c. Also, consider that if someone were truly offensive that you might want to report them to the mods (thereby saving all of us, potentially, from offensive behavior), or

d. All of the above?

Its not quite upsetting as disappointing. Maybe with a touch of disgust.

I'm just pointing it out to get a feel if this is the trend we are going down and also hopefully to rein it in. But yes, if this continues I'll just stop following this thread.

I haven't really participated in these topics for years now but they must be a real font of Dinsey-esque sweetness and light usually that jabs as gentle as Lysmongers are considered a disappointing and disgusting drop in standards.

Usually he has done something first though. And it wouldn't be so bad if he was at least witty about it, instead of just pointing and laughing. As I've said, I take my fair share of shots too. I'm certainly not defending Rothfuss. I just think that they are unprompted, tangentially related and crass.

So, yes, it is a drop in standards.

Did he ever address his publishers comments on his Twitch channel even if it was just to yell at the person?

He has not. 

Feels understandable too, because there's really no upside. People who are big mad at him will just take it as an opportunity to yell at him more. Eventually he'll probably be doing some sort of promotion for his charity, will be inundated with questions about it, and say that he and Betsy have spoken and it's private. I also expect that he will tell us that despite what you may have heard, he is working on the book.

If we were going to get much more than that, I think it already would have happened.

Ive met multiple people on colonist.io and on discord servers who have character names from his books, and they all agree he is never going to finish the third book.
