"I'm sorry, I don't share your beliefs."

Simple, stands against what they are saying, and you can't argue it.

... The I'm sorry portion might be the Canadian coming out in me. ;)

It was more of a problem when we were getting lots of comments, and sometimes comments made on older comics got missed. Generally speaking, anyone who is even remotely active is always happy to connect with a reader.

I'd rather write happy endings, but I find it hard to make a satisfying happy ending. I think bittersweet is probably the closest I get while still being relatively happy with how it went down. It might be because of the stories I'm choosing to tell in the first place though.

Xenocartographer:Yeah, there's... space bagel, Kelty/Babble, inky and her secret love inktrest, and Gryphon and Lee actually got married as a result of CF but that was pretty much before my time.

So yeah, I dunno, maybe the "C" in CF should stand for "Dating".


JRade and Silver Streak married as well.

As for me, I met Skrael while on an old school BBS. I was a mod for MajorMud, she died, so I brought her back to life and then helped her get her stuff. Met up in person for gaming and hung out platonically for a while, lost touch for several years, and then met up again and were dating within a few weeks.

We are celebrating our official 15th wedding anniversary in a couple of days :)

I think it depends on the type of person that you are. If you're in need of hand holding, you're going to struggle. If you're the type that longs for the ability to do things at your own pace, rather than be tied to your classmates' progression, you'll benefit significantly.

My home life was not easy while I was in University, but the fact that I could show up to 2 classes for one course and still pass made a huge difference in my ability to juggle the responsibilities that I was dealing with at the time. It also occasionally meant that I wrote an exam after pulling an all nighter because that was the only time I had enough peace and quiet to study... >.>

If it is the first impression, it's going to put me off. If it's something that happens in the general course, and someone is like "This was not a great page..", then it's fine with me.

I recall saying things like "This is not my best writing" or "This joke just wouldn't come together..." and people would chide me for being down on myself. I pointed out that there were times that I was quite happy with the result, and it's just the course of things. They can't all be winners (unless you're Calvin and Hobbes..), but you just learn from it and move on to the next.

Sounds like you need to stop trying to get something perfect, and just do your thing. When it's all in your head, it's easy to dismiss ideas and get frustrated, but when you've actually been doing it, you have a much better sense of what works.

There were frequent times that I finished a page and thought "Whelp, that's dumb, but at least I'm off the hook for another 1/2 week..", and people responded really positively to it.

And, having done a comic for an extended period of time, I had a lot better sense of what worked, what I enjoyed, and what were significant mistakes (Never split up your duo for a huge number of pages, for example... Splitting up the party is an even worse idea in webcomics than it is in horror movies).

Stop trying to make a perfect story, and just make a story. And then make another, better story.

If it's a story that happens to be NSFW, rather than a NSFW story, I've got no problem with it. I don't keep up on them as well, but I'll generally binge read them every so often.

What does bother me is a comic that hasn't been NSFW, doesn't have the NSFW tag, and then BAM! Boobs in the middle of the screen in a new update.

I tried to be tricksy with one character to throw off the readers who seemed to be guessing everything before it happened, and it just ended up making things confusing in general, and I don't think we ever quite recovered from that.

ilayas:Do people really use their work computers to look at web comics? That seems like a terrible idea. It's a work computer it probably has all sorts of tracking software on it. Why would you want your bosses to know what websites you enjoy visiting? If I'm going to mess around on the internet while at work (which I do frequently) I use my personal smart phone. Then it's none of their business what I am looking at.


I can't speak for everyone, but I work security, which means I have a loooooot of time between incidents to occupy. Webcomics are one of those things.

As for them knowing what sites I visit, I had to fill out documentation for my clearance level that included sites that I visit. So this is me showing them that I visit sites like Comicfury instead of sites that promote hate and violence :)

I don't mind if our kids stick around longer. It's better financially for them that way.

My mom's place has always been a safety net for us. My brother decided that he's going to be a doctor, so he's staying there now for the cheap rent while all his money goes towards tuition and the like. Having that as an option allows us greater flexibility in how we pursue bettering our lives. I want to follow in that path for our own kids.

For me, any comic that even toes the line with regards to nudity is off limits when at work. There is one CF mirror blocked at work already, and I'm not about to risk getting any others blocked for myself or any of the other people who might access it from behind that firewall.

I can definitely understand why people would switch off with any indication that it might not be SFW.

That being said, there might be the potential that people are jumping back into it later on, on a different machine that doesn't have to worry about the NSFW aspect?

I've never dropped a sub, but I would drop subs if I started getting unsolicited PMs about various projects. If it is done, I hope that it will be opt in (Site wide at the very least, Individual Comics as a preference).

We used to update every Monday and Thursday at midnight EST. Monday was to ensure that people coming off of a weekend would have the comic ready and waiting to greet them that morning. Thursday was because it was roughly equidistant for the amount of time to get a new page out.

I might ask Skrael to do something when we hit 20 million page views, but that is still a long ways off.

We did a lot of them for subscriber numbers during out run. It felt good to thank people, and give recognition to the people who were keeping us at the top of the ATP tab back in the day.

It also had the nice side effect of having more people subscribe because they wanted to be included in the next one, or weren't aware that they hadn`t subscribed until they noticed their name wasn't present.

For numbers, we did an extra panel or two every 50 comics, I think.

My advice:

List your career objective

I thought these were stupid, but apparently they might get a crapton of resumes, so it's nice to know which folder to put yours in.

Summary of Skills

If I have 5 seconds to look at your resume, this is where my eyes are going. Right underneath your objective, you list the most important things in the job ad that you possess somehow. You'll explain how in the Educational / Experience sections, but this is the tl;dr of resumes.

Education or Work Experience / Volunteering

Whichever is stronger, put it first. Put the other second. This should give a sense on how you got so good at the parts listed in the Summary of Skills.

Other certificates etc

Generally speaking, this is where I would put things like First aid Certified, Driver's license (if it isn't explicitly necessary for the job), Security Clearance etc

If you can fit it in 1 page, great. If not, no more than 2 pages.

You don't have 4 pages worth of relevant experience. Unless they are asking for everything you've ever done (because they are a police service, for example), then just take the most relevant parts. When I did my resume, I condensed a lot of the stuff I did through temp agencies, and dropped a bunch of jobs that weren't necessary to show that I had the skills to do the job.


And apply to stuff you don't have 100% of the credentials for. Chances are, the person getting that job doesn't have every little thing that they have listed. If you've got the big stuff, go for it. If you're feeling sassy, go for it even if you don't, depending on how good you are in interviews :)

Absolutely. The file size for .png was significantly higher, and on a slower connection, that can make a difference. I started uploading in .png, but ended up going to a lower res .jpg for the latter part of our run. If your connection is good enough, you likely won't notice a difference, but they are certainly a much larger file.
