OK, not forgotten, per se, but those who don't appear in the comics ever anymore.

sterlingdragon:  SLOW DOWN DUDE.  You are new here; I see that you registered like two hours ago.  In that time you've already got about 20 posts, 3 or 4 of which are topics you started.  Take it easy!  As a newbie you should lurk a bit more, and try to get a feel for the waters here before you take the plunge.  If you have not done so already, it might be a good idea to start a Hi, I'm New! thread to introduce yourself.

Mainly though, slow down and lurk more so you get a feel for the way things go around here.

...Dude. Please lurk. You're throwing yourself into the deep end of the pool and you don't know how to swim.

Anyway, as for the thread... I wouldn't say that these are forgotten characters --at least not Angus. In QC-Land it's only been a day or so since we saw him. He'll pop up again. As for Sarah and Scott, well they're kind of moot. Marten doesn't work for that company anymore, so why would we see Scott? And Sarah was only needed for a few strips, so It's not like anyone can "miss" her. And I'm sure Tequila Monster will pop up again when Steven and Marten get drunk after more heartbreak.

Also, you forgot Ellen.

Trust us on this dude, lurking is always something you should do whenever you first join a forum, unless you personally know some/all of the people on it(has happened to me once) but with all the people on here, I doubt that's the case. Lurk around, find the forums you want to post in and see what people are like (or do what I did once and drop a reply in a thread you know will rile them up, so long as it won't bite you in the ass later), and if you think you like what you see, take a few posts, see what people say, then start a few of your own. I don't make threads because I can usually find one where they're talking about the things I wanted to say, but that's just me.

Edit: and then I go and forget to post on the topic of question, stupid me  :-P.As for Ellen, she is still with Steve, so she is in the comic, just not actually drawn in the comic. It kinda annoys me at times, but thats how it goes. As for Sara, I have actually been wondering about that, she would have made a good character to bring back into the story at the latest arc, just for the extra drama it would have created (and would have likely burned me out on drama for the year), but an interesting twist nonetheless. As for Scott...I honestly don't remember who that is...okay, found him on the character page, well, that part of Marten's life is over, so we may likely never see him again.

I really thought, after seeing this latest arc, that the whole point of Angus was to prepare us for this arc itself, just to give us the hint of the idea that Faye may be moving in the right direction towards a real relationship. Of course, Jeph dropped a bomb on that, so meh.

Tequila Monster...*pops open a bottle along with some O.J. and Red Bull* YOU might not see him, but, Saturday nights, ya never know ...

...Oh, honey...Where have you been?? Steven and Ellen broke up a few hundred strips ago. Steve is having girl issues with a lovely mortician named Meena now.
...Go read some comics, dude.

....wow, I had honestly forgotten, how the hell did that screw up slip by me? And I was in the old thread for, what, last week, week before talking about the bar scene, memory must be slipping in my old age.

Okay, so he is right, Ellen has been gone for a while, but then again, when did we last see the Whitaker family? Or Marten's bandmates (which would likely lead to an Ellen strip)? There are a lot of characters that have fallen by the wayside, such is what happens when the worldsetting (or would the correct term be universe?) expands, especially in a web comic, some characters have to disappear for a while so that we can keep the primary focus on the main characters (unless jeph does a "side characters hijack the comic arc", but those almost never work out well)

I'm fairly certain we've seen the band without the Ellen connection pretty regularly since the Ellen/Steve breakup. Having Hanners in the band brings it a little more central, methinks.

Well you also have to keep in mind the actual time passing in the strip is monumentally smaller than it is to us. It may seem like forever since Ellen left, but it's only been a matter of a couple weeks or something in the strip.

The chronology and temporal issues in this comic have been coming up so often lately, we need to find a way to get that set. What do you think it will take to convince Jeph to make something, like, say, a timeline to fix this problem.

I was so tempted to mention that, but since she lacks the costume, it theoretically doesn't count.

*sigh* If you want to get technical, yes your right, no longer commonly thought about character thread sound better? Not really, so we say they are forgotten, how often do you use the phrase "oh, I forgot," its like that, the memory was temporarily lost to you until something triggered it, like, say, reading through the archives. We want at least some shred of their involvement in the current story, though if I can get an honest to god timeline, I'm good.

Helios, I dunno if anybody told you yet but it's generally frowned upon here to quote the post above you.  Just a friendly tip.

Ellen is with the eels, or something.

Yeah, it's for school.  She got the chance to spend like, a semester or so aboard a sub studying marine life.

Yes, but there's no pizza. Pizza, coffee and Pen-Pen would possibly be the best comic ever.

SilentJ: Yeah I know, I just try to post so fast before I forget whatever thought or tangent is running through my head that the rule sometimes slips my mind. Also, this is the only forum I know that holds that as a rule, so I don't always remember it, but I will try to make a better effort at it.

This thread may shed some light on the timeline. LeeZion has worked very hard on it, but there is still some room for interpretation.

I second that. Will we ever know if Penelope is pizza girl? If so, does she no longer deliver? That'd be tragic...

I wouldn't mind seeing Pizza Girl without her suit on.

But Jeph doesn't do nudes, so I guess I lose.
