Kyo's right, we waited several days for ours to start generating data.

To add to what The Doodler posted, always minimize the effort required for someone to support you. If you want them to look, post the link so they get there in 1 click. If you want assistance, explain everything you can upfront, maybe even post an image so that people can make their initial decision without even having to make that click.

The more effort required, the less people that are going to make that effort.

You have to understand the medium that you are in. Webcomics can be a very transient community, and every missed update is a potential "... and I'm never coming back!" in the readers' minds.

If you have to miss a scheduled update, tell people, and explain why. Delete it afterwards if you'd like and you've only drawn as much attention as it warranted to keep your readers in the loop. These sorts of things will foster rapport with your readership, and help to build a supportive community.

Djimon Hounsoun's character Juba from Gladiator? He was a black guy Gladiator. If there is a character that I've ever expected to die earlier than I did him, I can't think of it. It was like he was a buildup of every 'early death' trope that Hollywood had, and yet somehow he manages to survive the entire thing.

TOGM: Intelligent zombies reform society with synthetic brains after wiping out humanity. And then a human appears.

Fuss and Shush: After the King of a pastiche of fairy tale realms dies, his Regent travels with two potential royal bastard children to assess the viability of the heirs to the Kingdom. Each heir that they visit gives them a deeper insight into the war that no one realized was being waged.

Absolutely :) While I do agree that having Analytics or whatnot is good, having a permanent record since the start is great.

And I feel like I accomplished something worthwhile looking at those numbers :)

Merged Doublepost:

Steven-Vincent:It's kind of like the odometer. You watch like crazy to see it hit numbers like 1,000, or 10,000 or 100,000... but after that you don't care. My car is at 114K... I won't ever see 200K, and like I care if it hits 120K even?


Millions is a nice one to watch :)

I recognized that the people who were reading had invested in the world that was created, and would feel betrayed if I ripped the carpet out from under them.

On the art side, I also recognized that if we rebooted to showcase my artist's improvement, we'd end up in a perpetual state of rebooting after a certain amount of artist improvement.

You can do it by upload as well, can't you?

My suggestion is that you set tiers of amounts, and basically you list those amounts and a Name / link to people's comic on a page.

So, for example:

$20 tier donators:
Kyo - Kyo's comic

$15 tier donators:
shaneoid - shaneoid's comic

And basically update once a month with the information from last month's donators. Or, if you can see the pledges beforehand, everyone who is pledged for this month. Everyone knows the update comes out on a certain date, and if they want to be charged, they have their pledge ready beforehand. (Not implying Shaneoid would (only) donate $15, he just happened to the the visible bit in the thread review)

Edit: And while I know that you don't really want to give preferential treatment for users that donate, if you were to make it a comic itself, especially one that didn't update to the front page, the only people who are going to know / care are people who donate and people like me who will check out a comic on the basis that they are willing to help support the host.

Our comic was written (by me) for an artist to go off of. I tried to leave her a lot of room for her own creativity most of the time, so the only time there are specific notes about background or which specific characters are on screen are when it is important to the objective of the page.

First spoiler is the text, second is the page itself. Obviously, as you can tell, I swapped a line from one panel to the next. This was based on general flow of the dialogue and trying not to cover art with text bubbles most of the time.

[spoiler]

Panel 1:

Background:
Characters:
Action:

Dialogue:
JOHN: Why didn't you just attack me and eat my brain?

Panel 2:

Background: BETH's Kitchen
Characters: BETH, JOHN
Action: Talking

Dialogue:
BETH: It's not my thing. I enlightened them before becoming a Two and realizing what I was doing.
JOHN: So you're like the vegan of Zombies?

Panel 3:

Background: BETH's Kitchen
Characters: BETH
Action: BETH with a 'maybe joking' predatory grin.

Dialogue:
BETH: Either that or I'm just waiting for you to go to sleep so you don't fight backā€¦

Panel 4:

Background: BETH's spare room
Characters: JOHN
Action: JOHN looking paranoid, blankets or something clutched to him with eyes wide open, looking to the side. Basically getting across that he's not going to sleep tonight.

Dialogue:
NONE

I don't think ours does. I can't recall for sure though.

Edit: Oh, apparently it does. There's a strip in the Epilogue >.>

Second Edit: Sadly, one of the females is barely a character.

Soft magic systems, as defined by Brandon Sanderson, that solve problems without making things worse.

Soft magic has no blatant rules, and it just feels cheap. People have exactly enough chakra or magical energy to do the job when necessary, but are 'too tired / drained' when the plot calls for it. They have abilities that come out with no build up because it's magic, so why not?

But then they have problems that shouldn't be an issue because their magic should be able to cover it, and yet it doesn't for some unknowable reason.

You could make it "Leaving Tapas due to the ToS change that alters my rights to my created content. Google for Mirror."

Anyone who values you as a creator will understand that you are protecting your rights. Anyone who is invested in your story will continue to follow it. Are you going to lose readers? Perhaps. And if you feel that you will, then you realize that Tapas has value to your brand, and you need to assess the value of what they provide compared to what they require.

If you tell them you're leaving because of rights, and there is a mirror, you haven't left them high and dry. You've protected your rights as a creator as you see fit, and still given them the opportunity to enjoy your content with literally the bare minimum of effort on their part. If that's too much to ask, they probably aren't that invested in your content anyway.

Edit: All this being said, I have no horse in this race. I'm not advising anyone to actually do it, just that there are ways to follow the ToS and still give readers a heads up as to the why you are leaving and that your content will exist elsewhere.

Steven-Vincent:Forum posts -- also appear to be disallowed. According to the Forum policies on that site (listed here, scroll to the bottom), partial quote: "Do not post self-promotional links to your own external website, facebook page, Twitter page, DeviantArt, etc. in the forums." The way I read this, deleting your account on Tapas, and then making a forum post saying, "Liberty Lass has now moved to Comic Fury, URL here:" would be a violation of the forum policy.


"Leaving Tapas, google for Mirror."

I stopped reading a few comics with unexpected nudity in the midst of them. I occasionally read them at work, and I don't need the grief because a creator opted to put it in as a surprise. We didn't do nudity in our comic because we didn't want to limit where people could read it. If we'd included any, it would have been on a side link, clearly labelled NSFW and not something you'd randomly find popping up without intentionally looking for it.

Clarification: We had a naked butt in one scene. I don't think it would get anyone in trouble unless they worked in a really, really anti-nudity workplace though.

I erred on the side of being considerate to readers who do not want to view that content. As soon as we had any physical altercation, the violence tag went up.

Simply put, people who are meh about violence don't care about that flag. Its presence will not dissuade them from reading. So the only people who are going to be affected are people who don't want to see that kind of content. I don't want to deal with people who are angry that my comic had more violent content than they were expecting based on the tags present.

Having gotten quite a few comments over our run, I will say using your Author's Note to generate topics beyond just the comic itself helps to encourage people to comment. I believe responding to every comment that was directed toward us (some people commented towards other readers and we were able to just sit back and watch), showed the community that I was invested in them, and interested in what they have to say.

Sending my comments out to no response is something that I could do with Marvel or DC. People get personally invested in the individuals making the comics because we are able to provide a response.

Unless you are paying for it upfront, and you let her know that this is not to be displayed for anyone else (and you will have to pay more), the artist retains the rights to their stuff, and can do with it what they want.

So, presuming nothing was contractually decided during the original commission, she did fine, and it's best that you didn't make a fuss about it.

When we let our domain lapse, some douchebag bought it, and took a page of our comic and changed around some links. I tried for a while to get it taken down, but I have no idea how to force them to, and all my efforts hit "That's not our responsibility"..

Merged Doublepost:

Red Jack:

Intellectual property. If uploaded to a certain website, does it become their intellectual property?


Not unless the terms of service explicitly state that. Likely, they are going to negotiate the right to display your work, but the rights to it should never leave you unless you explicitly give them away.

Kyo:e: in regards to the hats, I do make an active effort to say "i'm not speaking as a mod here" when I sense ambiguity. But I'm only human. We had mod banners for this express purpose for a while, and people fucking hated them. I do try and be clear, but I'm only human and sometimes I will miss the mark.


When I was a mod, this was what I wanted most of all. 99% of what I said was said as a fellow user, and I know that at least one person left / limited their time here because they took my personal frustration with their conduct as a heavy handed mod thing.

I think that it would be worth testing other variations on it so that people are more okay with it. Because really, mods are members of the community, and will interact with people outside of their capacity as moderators. It's nice to know when that's the case, and when people are saying "It's gone far enough that I need to put my mod hat on and sort this out".

I feel like I can argue with Kyo as fellow user, but I respect Kyo as site owner's ruling if one is laid out.
