Loved the podcast... so much information I didn't understand but I'm not an artist :haha: was first time listening and was surprised to hear Shane worked on Adventure Time before!

At the end it said to send suggestions about what you could dig deeper into the game about... please change our badges :wailing:

Great podcast! Amanda, you and Jess make a great team!

Thank you Shane for answering my question about why our forum avies can change size! It makes perfect sense and I'm so happy to know why, as I'm sure others are, too.

I agree. Since the website is no longer running, its impossible for us to finish those badge trees if we wanted to. Maybe get the website back and running again, or change them to something completely different where we are able to finish them and have a complete badge set. :D
