Well, you’ll never believe this. Mod Edgeworth recently brought something to my attention -- apparently, some of your letters have been invisible to us unless we use our mobile devices. Because of this, a number of letters (dating back to February 2021) have gone unanswered until now, so if you happened to send a letter that was within the rules but still hasn’t gotten a response, well...that’s why.
The only fair thing for us to do now is interrupt the queue until we’ve made it through these skipped letters. A thousand “sorry”s to everyone whose letters we skipped (and to everyone whose letters we now have to put off). I mostly blame Tumblr for this, but I also bear some blame for waiting so long to get a smartphone. Sorry for that, too.
Good thing we figured it out when we did, at least. Enjoy some mobile letters, everyone!
So yes, it turns out Tumblr decided to pull an unforgivable prank on us. Mod Justice did try to tell us about this issue, but neither of us thought it was THIS bad. It wasn’t until Mod Justice sent an Anonymous letter of his own and sent it to us that I began looking into it, because I have been cursed with perfectly long term memory of when he brought it up the first time.
THANKS TUMBLR! HIGHLY APPRECIATED!!
Luckily, I was able to gather all the unanswered anonymous mod letters. Though, from this point on, we will only be answering anonymous letters until we catch up. We will notify you when we have completely caught up. This will not include Holiday letters. We sincerely apologize for this.
This letter alone will include all of the Mod Letters I’ve compiled that were month’s worth. If I didn’t get your letter, I sincerely apologize. This will also mean that the letters from here on out will look slightly different, since we are having to use our mobile devices and log onto the Tumblr App. On the plus side, you will no longer worry about hiding your emails or identity, since the mobile devices hides them well.
I’ll let Mod Justice have a say, since he was technically the whistleblower. I sincerely apologize for not looking into this earlier when you first came onboard.
BY THE HOLY MOTHER...
I knew there were lots of unanswered letters, but HOW DID THEY GET ALL THE WAY BACK FROM FEBRUARY?!
(I should have kept my mouth shut...)
No, no, NO. I’m NOT going to be like that. That’s just SELFISH and RUDE to all the fans who posted the letters in the first place.
Here are our responses to the following mod letters:
Mod Justice: Please do. It will be better for everyone’s mental health, possibly including yours.
(Seriously, consider yourself lucky I’m this generous. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have given the referenced letter a link here. You can repay me by following through on your promise.)
Dear Gumshoe “Letty” Fan,
You forgot to include “give all your possessions to your Gumshoe.”
Co-Mod: Just tell me where I can find those things, and it’s a done deal, pal.
Co-Mod: You figured it out. Congratulations.
Mod Edgeworth: How would I know? I submit letters by phone that doesn’t require any keyboard.
Mod Justice: I’m sorry, but firstly, “Change is bad“?! Really?!
You really need to re-evaluate your life if you’re going to have THAT kind of attitude.
And to answer your question: no, those letters are from the “Stone Age” of this exact blog.
Mod Edgeworth: Mod Paups left.
Co-Mod: Yep. Refer to this post (the 5th letter from the top) for the specifics.
Mod Kristoph: Even if I’m not doing much for now, I’m still on board the team.
Mod Edgeworth: I LOVE poetry. I used to be a member of Starlight Cafe and submitted some poetry. I do write some from time to time.
Mod Justice: Heh, songs count, right?
Sarcasm aside, yeah, I can see how poetry can be appealing. I mean, so many of Shakespeare’s plays have it!
Co-Mod: Well, I did... Then I met “her.”
In all seriousness, I do enjoy a good poem. I grew up reading Shel Silverstein’s poems, and still find myself remembering them every now and then.
Co-Mod: Well, heh... Now you know. *scratches back of head and grins*
Don’t worry about it, though I won’t promise any of them won’t get deleted, if there’s a ton of letters to the same character or the same letter to tons of different characters. If they’re different letters to different characters, we will likely answer all of them, especially if they’re anonymous.
Mod Justice: Uhhhhh...
What in the Khura’inese Hells did I just read?
Mod Edgeworth: It’s been good. Actually, getting letters from mobile isn’t as hard as I thought.
Co-Mod: Well, let me put it this way...
On the plus side, I’m alive, healthy, and somehow keeping up with the balancing act known as adult life, so things could definitely be worse. I hope the same can be said for you.
Co-Mod: Cars are writing letters now? Man, I feel old...
Mod Edgeworth: Unfortunately, I cannot drive. Yes, I’m 29 and cannot drive. Sad life I live in.
Co-Mod: Glad somebody got it! Their first names are anagrams of two other Shakespearean characters, in case you didn’t catch that.
Mod Justice: Khura-PUN-nese strikes again! 🤣
Co-Mod: Given that we’re dealing with this issue now...I’d have to say yes.
I don’t even know what Tumblr is doing anymore.
Mod Edgeworth: Well, if you tag anonymous please or write these letters, while logged off, then it shall be done. Though, since this is a mobile message, I doubt your anonymity will be as big of an issue compared to when it was on desktop. It doesn’t show your email address.
Mod Justice: They already are. 😑
Co-Mod: I never got into it, unfortunately. Even an avid Ace Attorney fan like me can only devote so much time to every piece of fan-made content, but I’d love to see if it’s as interesting as it sounds sometime.
Mod Justice: If it’s basically the Attorney Online chatroom upgraded, then no. It leans too much into the “roleplay” aspect of things, and I prefer to stay away from that sort of thing. However, if it’s NOT the chatroom, I am curious as to what it is.
I DO know what AO3 is. Look it up for yourself if you wish to find out what it is.
Mod Edgeworth: I’ve been to the roleplaying Ace Attorney Online, but that’s it. It was fun.
Mod Edgeworth: We’ll figure it out when we cross that bridge, hm?
Mod Justice: I will admit some of those are kinda funny... I might want to cherrypick a few to keep later, actually.
Mod Edgeworth: Miles Edgeworth Investigations 2. Though, I’ve yet to play The Great Ace Attorney games, so that may change.
I love AA6 too, but AAI2 was consistent with its story and no character felt underwhelmed or left out. Even the most annoying characters there fit there naturally with motivations that made sense. Luckily, you can find the English patched DS cartridge that will play on a DS or DS Lite on sale, but if not, you can also download the English patch.
Mod Justice: AA6. Not even a question. However, I did watch several playthroughs of AAI2, and I gotta say...
CAPCOM, WHY IS THIS MASTERPIECE NOT OFFICIALLY LOCALIZED YET?!
Co-Mod: I’m with Mod Justice on this one. I didn’t expect things to get much better after Dual Destinies, but Spirit of Justice proved it could be done. The music, animations, story development, character dialogue, and the new Divination Seance mechanic were all incredibly done, and they even capped it off with a case that reunited the original duo and their original adversary.
Being able to create something so enjoyable for both the long-time fans and the newcomers takes some incredible talent, to say the least, and if you ask me, it paid off beautifully.
Mod Justice: Thank you so much, kind poster! That really means a lot to me.
And about the “Troll Submissions”: Yeah... Hopefully, the person who’s been sending them will follow through on his promise to stop...
(Link in Letter)
Co-Mod: That’s fine, as long as you don’t expect the characters to act the same here as they do in that blog. They’ve got their Apollo, we’ve got ours.
Dear Calisto Yew,
Woman, get outta here. We don’t need ANOTHER villain takeover after the LAST one.
Co-Mod: Since when do you laugh like Bowser?
