To be fair to the Ps1, they didn't have several iterations of the system to have built up first party games for. Nintendo relies fairly heavily on foundations that were created back in the 80s even now to entice people to their systems.

Due to what they allowed, however, Sony was able to bring a lot of exclusive third party games in that Nintendo couldn't run on their system.

At the time, I was an N64 supporter myself, but the Ps1 was probably objectively the better system.

That being said, I think that RJDG lacks most of the games I loved on either system.

Steven-Vincent:If this thing had been in place since Al Gore invented the internet or something


He didn't invent it (or claim to). He was one of its biggest political supporters back in the early days though, and many of the people who invented some of the underlying factors have claimed that he deserves significant appreciation for what he did do.

Canada's net neutrality concerns were affected by a case of Telus blocking their workers' union's website. Hopefully, trespasses such as that will make it more clear to Canadians that these net neutrality laws are vital.

khkddn:I know it affects whether or not your comic shows up on Pop Now, but I've always seen comments as more important.


It might not be the same now, but it was of significant importance at one point. Having ratings disabled despite having significantly more of just about everything else, we still weren't getting on Pop Now.

We put it right after <title> in the header.

Might be helpful if you put your overall layout code in a code box in this thread.

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.

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.
