I: "I don't have WhatsApp. How about Email?"

One of my favorite comics, KODT, has a whole lot of text.

So, in theory, you can add tons and tons of text before it's too much, but that text better be good then, and vivid character expressions also helps a lot, so that one gets an idea of the emotional aspect before reading any of the text.

Oh crap someone cursed Princess Leia


on topic - bunnies may be more mainstream, but in the very end it depends on what type of character you're going for.

I smashed off my toenail when opening a door. I somehow managed to not scream, which was good since it was the entrance door to my apartment and there were other people out there in the hallway, I really didn't want anyone to notice this disaster.

I agree with the others, it's completely fine to ask. Or, simply add a button with the link below the comic page. From time to time you can also do some advertising what extra goodies there are for patreons.

Don'ts:
Guilt tripping is already mentioned, and I agree, it just makes me want to quit reading right away. Another bad thing is baiting (yes, it happens o.O)- Offering a number of comic pages for free to get readers invested, and then all of a sudden out of the blue, before the story comes to its conclusion - "well, to see what happens next you have to support me on Patreon". D:

This is great, thank you so much :D

Kyo:I could disable that if people don't like it. I actually added it in cause I figured it would make keeping track of your updates a bit easier, i mean who even knows what date it is... wait, do people know what date it is?

I prefer dates, since they are exact information. After all, what I need to know or keep track of is on which day a page is uploaded, it's not really interesting to know how many days there are between "today" and "update day".

e: Relative information such as "yesterday" or "x days ago" can also be misleading or confusing. For instance, I uploaded a page late at night between Tuesday and Wednesday, right now it's Thursday night, so that page was uploaded roughly two days ago. But since the upload was actually some minutes past midnight (very early on Wednesday instead of very late on Tuesday) the edit page now says "Yesterday" and "not two days ago", it looks like I uploaded the page Wednesday evening. It's clear what happened here, but it's not intuitive.

I buy print versions of webcomics I really enjoy, when they're shipped to my country (which is not always the case, many or most are U.S. or North-America only D: ) and the shipment fee is not ridiculously high (I once wanted to order a comic but then shipment turned out to cost 80 dollars o.O).

I've done as well as read comics in both formats. But while the scroll type is fun to do, I must admit that I like the traditional comic page format better.

The classic page is way less time consuming to navigate through (as well as more hand friendly), I just have to do one click (and perhaps a little scrolling on small screens) instead of click and then scroll-scroll-scroll-scroll-scroll-scroll. The classic page also reads more easily, since I'm able to see several panels or even all panels at once, which provides context and overview. With a scroll page where I see just one panel at the time with time delays in between, it feels like reading through a key hole (imagine reading a book where you can only see few words at a time instead of the entire page). Seeing all panels at once on the classic page makes them nicely add up to each other to a visually pleasing whole, an effect which you don't have to the same degree with a scroll page. Finally, should I need to go back to earlier pages in order to search for something, that's easy with classic pages, but a nightmare with scroll pages.

At the other hand, when done right, the scroll page can have a very vivid dynamic (the vertical motion), which is difficult or impossible to get to the same degree with a classic page. A classic page may also be too spoilery when the reader sees everything right away, the surprise effect is gone.

I've been reading and enjoying this thread (and the previous one) for a good while now. Is it still open for further reviews? Then I'd love to hear your thoughts on The Perfect Pest, which is finished and 20something pages long.

Mothtrap:some of you have so many tabs :O how do you keep tabs on all those tabs

;D

I use the "open new tab right next to current tab" function, that way all tabs are already sorted by type and easy to find again. like for instance "comics to read", "news articles" or "stuff which I may order at some point but haven't decided yet".

It never ever occurred to me that someone would think of that as annoying. I myself don't mind getting such comments at all, either it was intentional and I go "Yes that's right :D" or it was not not intentional and I go "I didn't think of that but now I see it, you're so right! ;D"

And because of that, I admit that I have posted such comments myself too, am I a "callous jerk" now? I don't hope so o.O

khkddn:I've thought of scheduling an update way into the future that would only go out when I'm too dead to keep pushing the date forward...

I've been thinking about that too, an update saying something like "If you read this, it means that I'm no longer able to update, maybe even dead", a neat image of a tomb stone and then a summary of the rest of my comic to it's very end, in order to bring it to a conclusion. I feel my readers deserve that, and after all, my aim was to share the entire story, not just some few chapters of it.

but what if alive me forgets and it goes up prematurely... sounds like something I'd do.

Pretty much the reason why I've not done this. what if I forget to change the upload date and it shows by mistake D:

Some notification system would be cool, an automated PM saying something like, if you're not responding within the next year, the page will show. o.O

I did a lot of research on exoplanets and time travel, in order to get my science fiction comic as "realistic" as possible.

Most of all the avatar, if I like the art, or its content makes me curious, then I click. Sometimes also the forums can make me check out comics, but it's rather rare.

The subscriber number doesn't really matter, even when it's like 100+ pages and only just few subscribers. Someone may have uploaded a lot of pages in one go, or the comic is just very niche.

Matt Comics:It may be redundant, but imo you should keep it. You never know how newcomers to the site may react.

Yes, when I was new I understood the 'Main' button right away (it's pretty self-explanatory), while I realized just now, after seeing this thread, that the logo actually is a button and clicking on it does the very same thing. Till now I thought it was there just for header and decoration purposes xD. Or, maybe it was like that originally, and then the link function was added later at some point?

I must admit that I like that 'main' link on the top right, I've been using it all the time. To me it makes sense having 'main', 'my updates' and 'forum' grouped together, they are the three things I check out when I go to this site, it's natural as well as convenient to have these right next to each other.

Sure it would be just a small inconvenience to have it removed. But since there isn't any harm in just keeping it, it doesn't take up much space, nor is it confusing, so maybe just keep it?

I think it's the nose (and the area around it), right now it's relaxed but its sides need to be pulled upwards, so that it wrinkles. I'd suggest, do that expression in front of a mirror and watch what your nose does.
