Pictures of You is getting a facelift!
Over the next few months, I'll be working on a redesign for the comic site, and while I have a lot of fun ideas, I'd like to hear from the readers on what they'd like to see. Bios? Maps? Links to cats playing pianos? If there's anything you've always wanted to see on the site or some little Pictures of You extra, leave a comment! All suggestions will be considered even if we don't use them, so don't be shy.
And hey, just because something's already been suggested, don't let that stop you from telling me you want it! In fact, if you see someone else post an idea you like, you should say so. If there's overwhelming demand for something, the chances are better that it'll show up on the redesigned site!
And just to let everyone know, there has been much weighing in already on the question of Forums, but there's no decisive majority of opinion. However you feel about it, let your voice be known and help me decide whether Pictures of You Forums will become a reality!

Oh. Bios. I would love bios. I love that sort of thing. *____*
An art page? Fan art/random other POY art you've done would be awesome too.

- Bio's maybe in a documentary type format(character talking to an interviewer)
- Map/back story on the college town they live/work/play in
- Avoid a forum(I enjoy the back/forth of the comments)

Forums would be great. Cast bios would be awesome!

On the topic of bios, I'd prefer if you avoided being too detailed or obvious with them as the subtlety of your characters is one of the strongest points and I think stating their characters too much in a bio takes away from that. (also details like exact height or weight being included seem downright redundant to me)
A more in depth recommended comics page would be nice as I admittedly don't often click your recommendations, but maybe setting them aside and giving a little concise detail about what you like about the comic would be nice.
Also, it might be nice to see a step by stop process of you making a comic for one part. Don't know how interested others would be, but I think it would be interesting having watched others doing livestreams and learning from their methods. You could do it with just a few pictures and some text to explain what each step entails.

I... pretty much agree with everything SBM said. Especially the part about the "how this comic is made" section. And the thing about keeping the character bios short is a good point too.

On the subject of character bios, I can say that I will certainly not be doing what you'd normally see on a webcomic cast page. I've been vocal about how much I dislike that kind of thing and have as much as said I wouldn't do one. People keep asking for one, though, so I've had to give thought to a workaround method. I've been putting a fair amount of thought into it, taking a couple cool suggestions and I think what I'm developing will look pretty sharp and won't give anything away about the characters.

Character bios would be awesome! Random art that you've done that didn't end up in the comic. Stuff like that =)
