Another Note On McInTots Comic Submissions

For those not aware, InkBunny allows one to group submissions together into one submission with individual, selectable submissions. This is what most people on InkBunny use in order to submit comics and let readers have a link forwards and backwards in the comic.

Unfortunately, if you're not paying attention, it APPEARS to be one submission and I think most people overlook this and skip entire storyarcs (also they refuse to watch me because I "don't have barely any submissions" which is bullshit cus I DO)

I'm going to catch up my profile here on McInTots so that when I do new pages, you'll be caught up (I hope heh)

So, please pay attention to this.

Thank you

What you might do is submit them slowly, one at a time... but each time you put up a new page, move the previous one into an archive submission. It's definitely not a perfect solution since it'll lose comments made before the move, but it's an idea.

Another way would be to put a special thumbnail up to call attention to the fact that it's an entire story arc rather than a single-page submission. With the new way multiple-file submissions appear now in gallery listings, it's a LOT harder to accidentally skip over them.

Finally, to be blunt, if people look at your submissions and can now SEE that they come in large numbers, and STILL insist that you "don't have barely any submissions", screw 'em. If they don't want to watch you, it's THEIR LOSS for being that stupid.

Heck, when Inkbunny had just gone public, I regularly skimmed the Members list for new entries whose names I recognized, to watch them--even if they had absolutely nothing up, no submissions, no journals, no profile information or icon. I don't do that any more because things have quieted down and I feel confident if there's anybody moving to Inkbunny now, they'll announce it on their other gallery site(s).

But I still have some artists watched who haven't posted a thing, just because I wanted to see their work, and if they don't post anything, it loses me NOTHING except the time it took to click +watch on their page.

If people are non-watchers for bullshit reasons, they'll have bullshit reasons no matter what you do. Cater to yourself, your friends, and your actual fans, not the people who turn their noses up at you.

I think I really like the thumbnail option. I'll impliment that approaching s3. Thanks n__n

In my opinion, it would be better to make them separate submissions, but maybe have a separate pool for each story arc. To me it makes more sense that way, not to mention people would easily see that you have a lot uploaded here, but things would still be well organized. Also, someone might want to fave a specific page, rather than the whole arc, which they can't do with the system you're using.

I look at the multiple images in one submission thing as being more for various versions of the same image, such as sketch, lineart, and colored stages in a pic's production.

Ultimately though it's up to you, as I'm not aware of any rule about how it's supposed to be used. And either way I'll continue to enjoy your comics. Keep up the good work! :3

Actually, this idea sounds a lot better; I think I'll start with the very next story arc then go back later and fix the others. Thanks!
