Learning the Ropes

Hey Potential Peeps,

Got the ol' invite to Beta-Testing for Inkbunny.  Taking a little time between work and Mom-ing to check the whole thing out.

Here is what I think so far:

Good:

-Donation button option.  This is pretty cool 'cause I don't want to beg fo rmoney, but I also don't want to turn down gifts.  This makes that process a whole lot easier.

-Digital/Print Sales.  Cool.  It makes me feel like I need to do some art to sell.  LOL

I'm not sure....

-Layout.  I don't know if I like it or not, I will know more abou that once I start uploading work.  Heck, that's why I am writing a journal right now.

-Reposting of work/Digital Sales.  I have my concern about pirates using this to sell MY work.  Luckily most of my stuff available free online isn't high-res. stuff.  So it isn't terribly likely.

Do not want

-The BBC is a little off and deletes the "return" on my stuff when I use the button to bold/underline/italic words.  It also puts a portion of what I highlighted to be changed on the outside of the code... so it ends up taking more time to use the button than it would to just type the code myself.

-The sign-up process was annoying.  This isn't a large complaint, mostly because Starling was pretty timely in their replies and fixing things.

That's if for now.  Just wanted to test the journal portion.  I'll likely be making a .zip later to test the bulk upload... looking forward to that one.  Always wanted to be able to upload more than one image at a time.

I can at least say that the pirates things is unlikely. The community will notice things like that and report them to you or Inkbunny admins very quickly! The pirates would have to get hi res copies of your work, create a fake Shawn account and start selling. So long as we notice someone doing that within 2 weeks of their first sale, we can refund all the money they took and they don't make a cent. This is partly why we delay payouts for sales by two weeks. I don't think it will be an issue! No more likely than someone creating a fake Shawn account on FA, anyway. Someone will notice pretty soon and tell the authorities!

What browser are you using? The problems with the BBCode are definitely a bug, not the way it should work!

I have been trying to use FireFox, but has logging in problems there (I think that was on my end) so I have been using IE... latest version I think.

Could you have a look to see if the same BBCode problems happen in Firefox for you? That would help out a lot!

I will- but I need to get back to work.  Hopefully I will fit it in tonight.  We shall see.

Welcome. ^_^

I saw your latest submission and you mentioning you didn't know how to "link" the old image to the new one.

Go to the submission page for the new image, click "Preview & Free Files," and upload the old image.  They should then both be part of the same submission.

You also mentioned the bulk uploader.  Unfortunately, that's only used for uploading multiple images (or "pages") to a single submission, and not several individual submissions.

We allow bulk upload of submissions now too! Check out the "Create" > "Submission" page now. :P
