Yeah, sorry that there aren't more people around to help. There aren't many people coming to these forums lately, and many of the people who do stop by (like me) don't have power beyond that of an ordinary user.

I'm not sure if the admins do signups more often than other stuff but my newsbox hasn't been approved since february so I assume they have something "more important and profitable" to do.
Wait a little more and if it doesn't work you could sign up for another service and still hang out with us. :wink: While you wait, you can look at other webcomics and plan out what you want on your own website.

wow!!! there's life out there after all!!!! thanks for the advice Mastermind! I'm getting itchy feet because I've already done 180 pages of my graphic novel and would love for you guys to see it and tell me what you think; I wrote a novel many years ago but decided to turn it into a graphic novel as I love art and writing combined. I live in a town called Blackpool in Lancashire, that's in the north of England and I'm a full time musician; would love to make friends who have the same passion for comics so thanks for communicating, I appreciated it. If i make spelling mistake do forgive me as I'm Italian.

I know I've posted some pages of my graphic novel on the help page forum by mistake but at least it will give you an idea of what my stuff is about....maybe you could have a look and tell me me what you think? I plan to self-publish it eventually but it's an ongoing thing and its a subject that I have so much material that it will go on and on...and on and on..as the story unfolds. It's good fun to have written all and bring it to to life in picture, don't you think? just like being Steven Spielberg!!! ha ha ha!! just joking! By, the way, if any of you are in to music, let me know!! as I play the keyboard, guitar and sing for a living! so bring it on!!!!

Thanks for the compliment :) though my artwork looks amateur compared to the pages you posted. If you're looking for feedback, ask in Technique Tips and Tricks, there's a better chance of response. And I don't use a mac. Maybe something in my code gives that idea, but it's generated.

And though the holes were rather small, they had to count them all.

sounds like you're anti-British, but that's okay! I don't know what you mean by my genes! as I'm Italian!!! and why are you making it personal!!! I thought we were here to appreciate our artistic talents or maybe I've missed something? and you're more concerned on taking the piss out of the British? be more specific and not so cryptic!!!

We were quoting this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-Q9D4dcYng

He meant that since you're British you should get the reference. lol

Zubine I'm going to give you a little advice to help make your time here at CG more enjoyable - check out the rest of the forum.
So far the vast majority of your posts are promoting/posting/discussing your comic - there is far more to do around here rather than just that.
You'd learn more about the people around CG and perhaps not have missed the obvious joke from McD.

Your enthusiasm is great but now it's time to get involved (which might distract you from the wait for your site to be available) :D

Some quick notes for you.

Squadron is an Air Force term, equivalent to a Battalion in Army/Marine terminology. A company sized element is called a "Flight", and I don't know how they break down beyond that. If those are Soldiers, that would have been a Platoon, seeing as it was led by a Lieutenant.

Berets would have been an anachronism in the 1950s, worn as unofficial headgear by tanker units I'm WW1 and then Army Rangers in WW2, typically modeled after the beret of choice worn by the British units they fought and trained alongside.

Sergeants stripes point upwards on all US Army uniforms from WW2 and onward.

Just some constructive criticism. As an Italian living in Britain, I wouldn't expect you to have indepth knowledge of American military. I get more upset when I see big companies like Marvel or DC put someone into a Staff Sergeant's uniform and rank, and then call them Lieutenant.

Laemkral...thank you for your deep knowledge of American combat forces...I stand corrected, I will surely amend my tex to fit the correct terms. I know about the stripes pointing upward, it was just lazy of me not the change it!! Platoon is right! will change that also! thank you for pointing this things, I very much appreciate it! after all, we British maybe don't know much about your military as they are different from ours but as my story is very American I will do my best to correct every detail...thank you!Laemkral...

Yep, as others said, I was joking about how all Brits live on a steady diet of Beatles. Nothing personal against Brits or Italians, or you for that matter. I do, however, immensely enjoyed how I confused you earlier. :D
