I'm basically never in here except when I need assistance with something because I'm an awkward turtle (sorry about that) but I just wanted to say that I've been using the site regularly for my comics for about a year now and "Flawless Victory!" boosts my mood every time I see it.
(gosh is this even the right place to put this? It's not really comic-specific, just something about the site that makes me happy)
Lol yeah don't-- no doxxing this guy. A number of people have suggested legal action and when I mentioned it over on dA he sent a different person a message about how "he didn't mean to seriously scare people" so hopefully the threat of THAT will make him think differently about this stuff?
I'm really glad I brought this up because I feel better knowing I have such good clear options on what to do about a problem like this here.
He used to know me back on TvTome (which has been TV.com since 2005) as far as I can tell he's just picked a couple of people he knew there and... maybe thinks this is fun? Except his language gets so aggressive (he told a friend he asked about me that she's on his "enemies list" when she stopped responding to him) that it's hard to see it as a joke.
Currently he's only posting as a guest (and I deleted them but he left... over 700 notes at my dA this morning which is partly what prompted this) but I will keep that in mind and deeply appreciate it.
I'm currently dealing with a self-proclaimed spammer following me around to different websites and was reminded of how grateful I was that CF gives me so much control over comments, so I wanted to say a general "Thank you so much for being a site that gives me so much control over comments on my comics" because it is so nice to not have to worry about this guy clogging up the actual comic sites before I can get to him.
I'm not even sure this is the right place to put this but here goes
I have a very large comic archive on Comic Dish that needs to be moved, preferably quickly? There are currently more than 1,240 pages in the archive. I know that when I first looked at Comic Fury several years ago there wasn't really a lot of support for that and I haven't really been able to find answers in any direction just looking at the site.
But I need to know if there's a way to help me import this archive to Comic Fury sooner rather than later because I've looked around, this site is the best option for my needs, and if I have to upload 1,243 pages of archives ten pages at a time by November 1st I'd like to get started now.
Hiya. I came on here sometime probably early last year thinking about hosting one of my comics here, a fancomic that's already hosted on DeviantArt (but it's ever so much nicer to have a proper comic site).
And then I died off the internet for a while, because that's apparently just something that I do.
But I'm mostly here to ask about the content flags, because I seem to have a very poor grasp of what's considered appropriate and what's not. XD
Now, "Frontal Nudity" is a pretty clear one even for me. I already know that's never going to be an issue in anything I'd be posting in this comic.
But "Violence" is sort of a varying degree thing- in the first couple pages a character gets hit by a car, for example, and while there's some blood it's not particularly explicit. Most of the violence tends to fall under these lines; it's there, you'll see a bit of blood now and again, but for the most part the gory bits would be in silhouette or just off panel. So do I flag that or not?
And then "Sexual Content," which is handled more or less in the same way that violence is- it's there, it's mentioned, there will occasionally be implied nudity and eventually "morning after" and "pillow talk" type scenes. The sex is explicitly there, but it's never particularly explicit in and of itself. I'm kind of assuming I should flag it, just to be on the safe side (people are so peculiar about sex) but it's never going to go beyond what you might see on, say, late network television.
But the one I'm really hovering over is "Harsh Language." We never once plan on F-bombing, but there is a certain amount of swearing otherwise... once again, never beyond what you might see on network TV.
I feel kind of silly asking all this, because it feels like this is all stuff I should know already. But I don't, so I am.
Jrade:Illegal would be a journal comic, done with real pictures, of ones life as a paedophile...
...but given that nobody's going to do that, I think everybody's safe.
...nobody was going to do that, right?
D: Certainly not.
The main comic I'm planning on putting here is a Yu-Gi-Oh comic (save the heckling for when I get it here) that I co-write with my bro, which is hosted on DeviantArt. It's of a mildly parodic nature (I like to poke fun at the fandom culture particularly) but is essentially fanfic. The people who dubbed YGO (and thus have the rights in the US) seem pretty good-natured about that kind of thing, considering the attitude they take to Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged. I'm not claiming anything or making money off of any of it, so it's legal (until the copyright owners explicitly decide they don't want me doing it, which like I said they're pretty good-natured about that kind of thing.)
But if we can get it out of the production stages, there's a Transformers fan-continuity project we're working on (also of a mixed parodic/serious nature) that I'd rather have its own place, rather than going on DeviantArt. (Hasbro's even more good-natured about that kind of thing. XD)
Basically I planned on using the YGO comic to get a feel for how the site works, so I'd know what I was doing when we're ready with the other.
I am curious because ComicDish prefers that you keep things of this flavor to parody (You're allowed to do a comic about a baby Spiderman, but not about a regular Spiderman, for example), and I've long liked the idea of giving certain slightly more serious fancomic projects a home besides just DeviantArt, but dislike Smackjeeves and DrunkDuck and am html dyslexic to the point that trying to use too much coding at once makes me cry.
And I couldn't find anything other than "We don't claim responsibility for you," which is sort of like saying "do what you want," and yet is not. I don't want to post something in a place where it's not really allowed, so I'm asking outright.
And if this is in the wrong place, obviously I want you to tell me so. :)
You know, I'm not sure. We have a few NSFW art threads and the Code of Conduct says not to post such images in places it's inappropriate, and also not to post hate-images, but since the avvie is kind of vagueish most of us just kind of roll our eyes at him. If someone complained about it I'm pretty sure one of the mods would ask him to change it.
And because when he's not being an ass, he comes up with fascinating, if difficult to understand, topics of discussion and keeps the community awake. Check out several of the more recent general discussion threads over at CD: "How do we understand images?" and "Videos about the logic of comics" are both good examples of [AoD] genuinely trying to start interesting discussions and mostly being stymied by the fact that he speaks in technical jargon and the rest of us don't. XD
That's also why he essentially was like "Everything should be lists!" He thinks in numbers.
BlackMageBrad:Personally, I think that AOD would be the perfect representative for ComicDish as a champion of sorts, and we send in he who shall not be named from Wisconsin to battle; the odd troll versus the gentleman troll, as it were.
Hoi. Whilst I like AOD as an artist, I dislike very much the idea that he represent me as a champion. He certainly has the energy for it, but I don't want your poor mangled bodies littered all across the way like some kind of guro 4chan thread. Ew. He fights tirelessly, but without honor.
That said, aiyaiyai, first post in a new place! Comic Fury is clearly better than the hated Comic Genesis, and regardless of my statements over in the equivalent ComicDish thread, it is also not as ugly as many other hosting sites, such as SmackJeeves. I shall try not to be an ugly tourist.
