Just received word that submissions for this year's CCF Charity Drive are open!  I participated last year and LOVED the result.  Check out guidelines and how to participant here!  The theme this year is Awkward School Photos.

I love the idea of biweekly or monthly hangouts! :D It'd be super cool if we had a way to get the members all together again (last time it happened was during anthology planning, IIRC).

Ditto to this. I love Google Hangouts :D
Ditto ditto that!

The Gazette / Emily's Honeymoon Comic of DOOM!
« on: September 13, 2013, 09:45:50 AM »
So, as I've mentioned before, I'm getting married this month (2 weeks to be exact) and it's becoming clearer that I'll need some filler for the week of my honeymoon.  As such, I turn to you guys for assistance! I'm looking for comic submissions to fill the gap during my vacation.  If you guys have some spare time and ideas, I'd love to feature you on my site!

Specifically, I'm looking for comics about what could happen on the trip, be it a normal romantic get away or an ambush by surfer ninja penguins or what have you.  I just need them to fit within a 700 x 1083 area.  I'm accepting submissions until October 3rd.  Thanks!

The Tavern / Re: Hosting an Art Jam
« on: September 13, 2013, 07:42:45 AM »
What Muninn said.  The only jams I've done were either over the web with Plotholetsi or for the 24 Hour Comic Day.  Just make sure there's adequate space and food/drink available (depending on how long you plan on jamming).

The Scriptorium / Re: Comics that have 10345055 pages?
« on: August 22, 2013, 05:36:51 AM »
I can't say I recommend this. What's the point in having archives if you just write prose to sum up every hundred pages you do? If a reader truly wants to catch up they should read your archives, not a massive summary every hundred pages. As a writer, you're not responsible for a reader's poor memories. Every part of the comic is available and free. Those desiring recaps should re-read the comic. It's better for your memory--not to mention your experience--to recall the actual material anyway.

Personally I find recaps are tiresome. Even on TV series, it gets irritating after awhile to sit through a recap of every subsequent episode in the series. Perhaps I just find this silly from my experience as a writer. Any story should be able to stand on its own without catering to it's readers'/viewers' needs. They shouldn't want to read a story to reach the conclusion; rather they should read a story to experience the adventure that it takes you through. Giving readers a synopsis of every book/volume/whatever diminishes the journey they--the readers--are supposed to take.
I agree with you, however I don't think it can hurt to have them if your archives are daunting.

If it were me, I would have 2 options for new readers: Start from the Beginning and a Start from Current Arc where the first page is a recap of any pertinent information for the reader.

Muninn, your work ALWAYS wows me.  I adore this!!

I believe btPHP can be used that way. Basically you'd upload several pages under the same 'date', and adjust the initial layout code so there's enough line-break spacing to visually work, and basically upload each chapter as a 'day'. btPHP can also be uploaded and organized as page numbers versus dates, I think.
Uh... I don't think you can organize them by page number in btphp... I mean, you don't have to make the filename match the date, but the only way the code organizes which file goes where is by date (which is why I have to code my archive page by hand).

You can edit the updates (by which I mean changing the title of the page, the date associated with it, any comment, and the file attached to it) and set pages to update at a later date.

Comixpress is now closed, figured you might want to remove them from your original post.
Right! All fixed. Thanks!

So, I started working on a story I've been kicking around for a couple years now and am trying to do the coloring all by myself.  Pretty happy with the result so far.
