So if a reader wants to go directly to a specific comic page he will still be taken directly to the home page first?


If you really wanted to, you could put a big disclaimer at the top of every page.

That's how I usually do it. That way anyone who tries to accuse my comic of not having any sort of "disclaimer" to warn them of the content would have egg on their face.

I'm not into violence but I might push it with ..... weird perverted gross sexual humor. I do make characters say bad language if it suits their personality and they would have a reason to. I'll draw nudity if it's not sexual so you might catch a glimpse of male bits.

Is this pushing anything or ? - image

VSLN? That's the stuff that induces a form of hypnosis in whoever reads your comic. lol

Other than the VSLN tags ComicFurys's only rule is no porn!



Where the hell is the limit?! I've only been on here for a couple of hours and I've already seen two comics right at the borderline of being pornography.

Adult content is allowed. What separates that from porn is particularly obvious. Generally Kyo and I won't do anything unless it's child porn or, like, a snuff comic if those can even exist.

I had to think about whether I would tick swearing in the thing, but there is enough of the other stuff that more than makes up for it. I won't give away specific detail, except I try to use them all sparingly. The stuff is few and far between, but totally brutal.

Most of its backstory, or shown in behaviour pattern symtoms.

Right now I only have the language tag on my comic since the start since two of its characters swear on occasion. For the janitor, it's just part of his personality to break out variations of sailor mouth and relevant puns when being sarcastic, which gets pretty funny to plan out.

Other tags may go up several pages before content of such nature happens. Uncensored nudity is definitely a never, though.

Since I want people to actually read my comic, unfortunately, I have to tone down some stuff. Unfortunately, by using "innappropriate" content, you end up limiting the maximum number of readers you can get.

Accessibility is pretty important, but no matter how worksafe you can make anything, a comic is only going to interest certain types of people, so it'll be easier and effective, to just narrow down your anticipated audience to the broadest spectrum of who's actually interested i your content. I'm not going to read anything centric on sparkly vampires no matter what, and I don't expect eight-year-olds to read my comics.

My guess is that we can narrow down our expectations and target while keeping accessible to everyone, so we can "fish" people from outside the intended target group. Besides that, inside of the people we want to read our comics, there may have people who dislike excessive use of sex and nudity, while others won't tolerate a bit of any, which kinda makes some sort of "double-narrowing" process. For an example, if a gamer comic shows too much boobs and violence, while every other word is "fuck" or "shit" isn't attactive to non-gamers AND a part of the gamers themselves that won't tolerate such content.

One reason why I ask if I can simply force the reader to read the comic disclaimer before they get into the actual comic is that there will always be those people who will ignore the warning icons, popup warning and bypass the home page just to see the latest comic. Then they get offended and state they never got a warning about what was in the comic (yeah... I've seen this). So I'd like to be able to edit all my pages so they can't get past that disclaimer as it's the first thing that loads (and it's text rather than an image). Something tells me they'll probably figure out some argument that will get them past that though...

Lonnehart, it shouldn't be too hard to put something in the header if you don't mind messing around with the HTML a little.

And, also... It's your comic. As long as you put the warning flags on, and you're clear that it's a NSFW comic when you advertise it, you've done your bit. If someone chooses to ignore the warnings you provide, that's their problem, not yours. Some people are just looking for reasons to be offended, and if you can't just ignore them, maybe you shouldn't be doing a NSFW comic. There's no foolproof way to warn people, because there are some really determined fools out there.

I already have a niche market, so I'm not to worried about selling it to everyone, even though its free for the time being.

Oh, I can ignore them. I just don't like giving them ammo either (the ammo being that there was no warning... they could claim the don't know what the symbols are and some might have popups disabled or something... I guess I'm just paranoid). I'll be fiddling with the HTML in a bit so that the disclaimer is the very first thing anyone sees when any page loads.

One hard part about doing an NSFW comic is that you're... easily... distracted... I do believe there was one Sexy Losers comic that shows something about this... :)

I am going to step right in it here and hopefully no one will think the less of me for it, so here goes...

One particular story I am working on deals with a friendship between two boys who grow to be very good and intimate friends over the course of their young lives. The story starts when they are young children and goes into their early adult life and deals with sexual orientation, the confusion of friendships during youth, and the exploration of sexuality between friends regardless of gender. It is an adult story with adult themes, and parts of the story deal with childhood sexuality.

So, does that get a pass? It's not for laughs, or for shock value: it is meant to explore real issues that are based on real life situations. I guess I can always put this particular comic elsewhere, but reading this forum brought it to mind, and people here seem pretty intelligent and rational about things such as this.

from that description you should be ok.
though the worst that could happen if it isn't, is kyo or whoever asking you to turn on the tag.

i really love your name, btw
