Love that poem.
Oh yeah. It’s true.
What makes this even more of a shitshow though? Well, if you don’t feel like digging through all the legalese to find this section, I’ve done it for you. This is what it says as of 2014-01-25, 19:53 PST:
Read that. Read all of it. Not just the legalese in white. Not just the “skimmer-friendly” version in gray. Read both and notice how they technically, for all legal purposes, say the same things…yet completely contradict one another from any practical standpoint. The gray boxes are all nice and friendly. The legalese is basically a great big ol’ FUCK YOU.
So yeah, signal boost the hell out of this.
important to note that applying for a u.s. copyright costs $35, a fee that a lot of independent artists and writers cannot afford
HAHAHAAA WELL TUMBLR, GOOD ONE! A LARGE percentage of your user base is made up of artists, if this little “trick” isn’t removed, I will be leaving on February 8th. And will never return-even if you change it afterwards, because frankly-it’s disgusting that you’re even TRYING this shit.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don’t - I have a lot to learn), I’m not sure I could communicate them effectively. I’ve gathered some thoughts and ideas here, though, in case they’re helpful.
First, some general things:
Q:Hello, Tracy! I'm looking to start a webcomic, but I find myself completely and utterly at loss when it comes to finding a good place to host it... I initially looked at Godaddy, but their website builder doesn't seem incredibly effective, at least not for webcomics. Do you have any advice?
My web site is a custom built dealy, but I know there are some popular blog templates out there like ComicPress and some popular hosts like Smack Jeeves. There are some tumblr themes designed for web comics available now too. I don’t have hands on experience with any of these things, though, so I can’t really comment on which are most customizable/reputable/secure.
If anyone has suggestions or opinions about web comic host options, please feel free to chime in and reply to this post!
Hope someday I’ll built my site too. ^)
