WHATS THIS?

This is a depository for comic strips!

Rules:

1. Contributors can submit 4 items per day while Members can submit 2. Member submissions require approval. We may invite you to be a contributor if you've shown that you can deliver a punchline on a regular basis.

2. In English please.

3. Original strips only, no fan-art, manga, sonic the hedgehog bull-crap. (Parody and satire are fine, but no ongoing fan-written stories or "here's my Sonic fan character".)

4. Technique isn't important, but it should be legible and get laughs! The funnier it is, the more likely it will be approved. Humor ranges from cute to obscene, we don't consider any topic too vulgar.

5. Please submit self-contained strips that can deliver a joke by themselves. The reader shouldn't have to have read any of your prior comics to be able to understand your submission.
It has been a long few years for me.  And, it looks like, for this group.

To get the boring stuff out of the way first, I think it's obvious that most of the people approving comic submissions are gone.  This is a sad state, but life does tend to get in the way despite my comic's name.  I was friends with BlopNutz on FB for more than a few years as we drifted away from DA, but he has vanished from there as well, and I have no news.  I am still acquaintances with NobleSavage but he seems to be on to different things, as we all have been.

Alright, to the exciting stuff.  As I am back (I don't know for how long) I'll be approving contributors and changing some rules in the group as much as possible in order to survive another founder meltdown and contributor hiatus.

First thing, we need some new contributors.  Contributors can freely submit content on a whim.  And I'm going to see if I can make it so contributors can vote for member content submissions.  I'm sure that's easy as a few buttons.  Basically, I'll see if I can give the Contributors all the power us Co-Founders have, or at last as much as I possible can.  If you think you can vote for quality content submitted by members while still pushing out superb content of your own, reply to this with some links.

If you're seeing this entry, that means I've managed to get at least some controlling power as a lowly CO-founder and I've managed to skirt around the voting system set in place.

When you say no fanart ... I have a comic strip but occasionally it follows a geek show/movie eta.

I've only got one up on DA atm, and it's a firefly/jesus one, but I can upload a couple of pure originals for this group

I assume anything existing in a non-owned universe but using original characters constitutes as 'fanart'? (for example, I have some comics based in the Elder Scrolls universe, but using my own and generic characters)

Just want to make sure. :D

We probably all have slightly different opinions about that, but if you ask me, I'd say that what we're trying to avoid is comic strips which regularly reference and pay homage to other works. I've seen your stuff and I think that though it's funny, it is pretty much inscrutable for anyone who has not played those games.

Alrighty, I'll keep away from the more obscure stuff. : )

Thanks for the compliment, though. :D

Hey, don't understand why I was rejected for my cat comics?

I rejected it because I didn't think it was funny.

Sorry to hear that: I like your strips and always voted "yes".
I quckly browsed through your latest submissions to :iconcomicstripclub: and I found out that they were never rejected (they just expired). This means that they only lacked the minimum number of votes, even if the votes themselves were positive.
As you can see from the journal, we're looking for new contributors. I think you could be a fine addition to our group if you applied! :)

Thank you for the mail, but I see little point in belonging to a club that I cannot post cartoons on. I wish you the best of luck on DA!

I just send BlopNuts a message--a proposal, if you will--that I hope can bring some more life back into the club. We'll see what he says. Or, maybe he'll just give me permission to do it myself.
