Kyo:I think imgur images get deleted after some period of time, so this is probably not a great idea.


Yes and no. Public images (those shared on Imgur) may get deleted after some time, but private images (not shared on Imgur but can be direct linked anywhere) do not. I have images on there dating back 5 years. So Imgur is good for promo stuff but not so good for hosting a webcomic.

This is the paper map I made of the main continent that is used in the story but all the rest of my maps are simulated satellite images and a few star maps. I made all of the maps with 3DSMax and Photoshop.

On TWC, once you get on the front page it is a very very slow climb up the ladder. I think it took me a few years to get in the top 10. There's just no substitute to building readers by having a good story and artwork. I've never tried advertising but I guess that's a good place to start. The incentive pages definitely help.

I haven't seen as many botters as there used to be, or maybe I just don't notice anymore, but yes it used to be bad.

We haven't learned our lesson from the Red Wolf. They were listed as endangered in 1967 and declared extinct in the wild in 1980. But luckily we had 14 breeding red wolves in captivity so every red wolf that lives today is a descendant from these 14. Some were since released into the wild in NC but there are only 40 of those left today and a few hundred in captive breeding programs. The ones in the wild are hybrid breeding with coyotes so they are all but proving that they can no longer survive outside of captivity.

The problem is genetic depletion. There are only 5000 - 6000 gray wolves left. We can see what happens in the case of the Florida Panther where there are only a few hundred left. "The lower genetic diversity and higher rates of inbreeding led to the increased expression of deleterious traits in the populations, resulting in lower overall fitness of the Florida panther population." Crooked tails and cowlicks are now common deformities in the population of panthers.

You can not sustain a population without ample genetic diversity. The problem is that predators such as wolves and panthers need a lot of land that political lobbyists are competing for.

Gray Wolves were already removed from the endangered species list in 2011 and 2012 under Obama. This bill mainly addresses miscellaneous hunting and fishing issues. This ONLY addresses these two populations of Gray Wolves, one of which was an experimental colony.

H.R. 3668

"TITLE XIV--GRAY WOLVES

(Sec. 1401) Interior must reissue: (1) the final rule published on December 28, 2011, that removed the gray wolf in the Western Great Lakes Distinct Population Segment from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and that removed the designation of critical habitat for that wolf in Minnesota and Michigan; and (2) the final rule published on September 10, 2012, that removed the gray wolf in Wyoming from the list and removed the Yellowstone Experimental Population Area that was established to facilitate reintroduction of the wolf. Reissued rules are not subject to judicial review"

Edit: H.R. 6784 does address all wolves, but again, they were removed in 2012.

Just for info reference, the top furry/anthro comic listing site is Belfry and the number 1 comic on that site (or any) is Two Kinds.

You might want to check out the "most subscribed" or "most read" comics on Belfrey for a good idea on the current trend of furry/anthro comics.

In the future, miniature silicon devices called nanomedibots can be injected into the bloodstream. They will be able to attach themselves to cancerous cells, then near infrared light will pass through healthy tissue and cause the nanomedibots to heat up, destroying the cancer cells.

No more cancer. Cool shit!

mightguy15:Thanks for that info, the details were a bit of a mystery to me and this comment really helped to clear things up. whats your opnion on this? Do you think its possible everyone will get thier act together, or should we start kissing the earth as we know it goodbye?


What I previously described is called the "Methane Feedback Loop". There is also an "Albedo Feedback Loop" where as the icecaps diminish, the Earth loses the white reflectivity of snow and ice and absorbs more heat from the Sun.

People become concerned about things that they can see happening around them, but are less concerned about events they only hear or read about. The problem with that is that these events are taking place in polar regions where there are few people. So unfortunately things are going the have to get worse to the point where the whole world can see for themselves that there is something going on. The question is, will we "wake up" in time to fix it.

What we can do is seek out the facts for ourselves. This IS NOT an exact science so DO NOT use absolutes. Climate alarmists like Al Gore who predicted the ice caps would melt by 2014 or this article that predicts we have 12 years, do nothing but add doubt when they don't come true and actually do more harm than help.

The tundra makes up about 20% of the Earth's surface. Within the permafrost is about 1400 gigatons of frozen carbons like Carbon Dioxide CO2 and Methane CH4. Currently there is about 850 gigatons of carbon in our atmosphere. It is hard to determine how much of these carbons would end up in the atmosphere if the permafrost melted. Estimates are 100 - 200 gigatons which would cause up to 0.5°C (up to 0.9°F) extra warming. This event is considered "the point of no return" because it would cause a domino effect, warming the permafrost and releasing more carbons.

When will this happen? Most estimates predict that it will start no sooner than sometime around 2040 and be completely melted by 2100 but would continue to release carbon into the atmosphere until 2200. There are so many variables in trying to calculate the melt down that it is not an exact science.

We have a little more time than 12 years to fix this, but not much. We have to figure out a solution now, but the problem is that it is a global issue.

1. Deforestation - Malaysia, Paraguay, Indonesia, Guatemala, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Finland, Sweden, Portugal, and Laos are the countries with highest deforestation rate in the world. Deforestation not only eliminates the Earth's ability to absorb carbons but also accounts for up to 20 percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming. There is currently no legally binding agreements to stop this.

2. Carbon dioxide emissions - China at over 10 mil kt is responsible for almost a third of the world's emissions, and over twice as much as the U.S. The Paris Climate Agreement did not have China to take any steps of compliance until 2030 and after 2030 it would allow them to continue polluting for another 20 years until they got the the rate where the U.S. is now.

I can pretty much do without all the music from the 80's and 90's but two of my favorites are from completely different eras -- Rush '74 - '78 and Coheed and Cambria '02 - present.
Coheed live

I would have to disagree with most on this, at least from my experience. CF is probably the best hosting site but you don't get very much traffic from it. Here's some of my recent traffic data and you can see that almost all comes from Top Webcomics, and CF isn't even in the top 10.

Chippewa Ghost:Pretty tame, unless you're the fish:



This is thanks to Diz for participating in VDSD 2018. Also already got JQC, looks like I owe Tibbittz some action! Good to see you back in action, big guy!


I agree. Tibbittz is such a talented artist and he needs to share his art with us more often.
And thanks again CG!

I actually did this to an extent. I put Bidi from Whiteout in to Fallout 4 and gave her some quests and her own hideout.

Both narwhals and walruses live in the North Pole. Double awesomeness with a side of polar bear!

Penguins are just food for leopard seals. They got nothing on the ocean unicorns of the great north!
