I signed on to keenspace, and recieved a verification email, along with a link to my site, and checked out the link, sure enough my comic was up. I went to go log in, and it wouldn't except my username or password, so I clicked on the new password link, filled it out, and have been waiting since. I know I probably sound very impatient, since I've only been waiting for 2 hours about, but I was wondering how long it takes to send the message.


Also, I'm not quite sure if I filled out the forum right, how exactly are we supposed to fill it out?

I mean, for 'comic username' do we type in the comic name, the username, or both?

and the 'custom password' is it the password we recieved in the email, or a new one that we make up?


Sorry if this sounds very simple to most of you, it's just that I've never done this before, and am very confused.


Hiya, the emails take some time to get to people. It's worth waiting.

All I can say about the username is what I did. My comic name is Magic Men, so I used magicmen as a username, to get the magicmen.keenspace domain. So it means username :)

The custom password is a new one that you make up.

bounced emails

Postby Smorris on Tue Jul 13, 2004 9:27 pm

So I signed up for an account with Keenspace, waited about a week, and then tried to sign up for the forums to ask a question. Trouble is, when I signed up, I didn't get an email. Then, I signed up for the forums again, using a different email address, and got a verification note immediately. So it seems my ISP (my old college actually) is for some reason dropping the email.

Is this a common problem? I gathered from reading through these forums that this is actually a frequent occurance. Or do many of the cases discuss turn out to be just impatience?

Whatever the case, what do I do now? Do I have to wait the requisite 2 weeks to sign up for a new one? Now that I know this is the problem, I would like to sign up again, but under the same name... plus since this is largely a politically based strip, it would be nice to get it up there before it gets too dated. :)

Anyway the user name of the strip is debton. Thanks for any help anyone can offer me.

MMMk, so I got the verification email and replied to it. So all I gotta do is wait for a week for the other email to come right and I should be fine?

bounced emails, cont.

Postby Smorris on Wed Jul 14, 2004 10:09 pm

So I sent an email to this old college of mine wondering what the problem was. Turns out that they have spam filters that I never see, and that Keenspace was flagged by that filter. Here's what the gentleman from the school told me:

In order to alleviate the burden of spam sent from compromised machines, we've recently implemented a policy of not accepting mail from machines that don't look up (via dns) to the hostname that they claim to be sending mail from. This is the case for keenspace (their mailserver appears to actually call itself butch.keenspot.com, but the IP does not resolve to that name).


He managed to restore my forum verification email, but I'm still waiting to see if the signup email is back there somewhere. So I guess something's funny about the dns and the IP for Keenspace? Might be worth looking into, could solve some headaches on at least this board. :)

Could someone tell me the address and/or IP that signup emails or change password emails are sent from so that I can have them whitelisted by my college? Thanks.

Well I was gone for a week, and I got my activation in the meantime! Well, time to get to work. So... ignore my previous posts, I suppose.

Yeah, that's what ping says too:
"Pinging butch.keenspot.com [66.220.2.7] with 32 bytes of data"

But according to what they said the actual mailserver seems to be posting from some other IP.
(ie. the IP of the mailserver does not resolve to the name)

So...
You are the Non. You must go now, and never return."

"1.Scan in high res 2.tweak with curves,levels or something to clean up the scan (or use channel mixer to remove blue pencil lines) 3.Add colour using a layer set to multiply. 4.Add wordbubbles and text as vector shapes. 5. Merge all layers. 6.resize to the web size. 7. Export/Save for Web" that's all I know about webcomicking.

Help =(

Postby Chameleon on Thu Jul 22, 2004 2:02 am

After reading all the FAQs, the Tutorials, Tagtorials, and all the Help Threads related to Keenspace sign-ups, I managed to get all of my previous questions solved.

However, one has been left unresolved, and after double-checking, it is my last resort to post this:

When I signed up for my account, first my file size was too big, then my area code didn't match my location (I finally figured this out), then I did resize (file size is now 115 KB), and my phone now matches my location (I had listed my phone, but my location (where I *will* be in the fall, since I'm moving cross-country), but that aside, everything's fixed.

Problem? I'm not receiving any page that says "Thank you, your request has been submitted, please wait for your activation email (7 days)." I'm not even receiving any page that says "ERROR ALERT - you have *insert number* errors, please go fix them" - What I get instead is, the very same page that holds the form to sign up for a keenspace account.

Am I supposed to get a page that says "Request has been submitted. Wait for your email" or do I just accept that it might have been sent already and then sit tight and wait for a week?

bytes

Postby Chameleon on Thu Jul 22, 2004 11:07 pm

sizes go like this (smallest to largest):

bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, terabytes (although one terabyte is equal to 1000 GB, and you only find an average of 40 to 50 GB of storage on most computers, so that's a hell of a lot). Bytes are especially tiny, and if your picture is something like 1 byte, I'd be worried if I were you.

I'm not sure... I think we do, but there was some talk about including copyright information in all the images... and I'm not sure if that's enough. Someone else please explain.

Anyways, the point is: we want nothing that may get keenspace sued for copyright violation.
You could read some page about copyrights and do everything to make your sprite comic legal. If it's legal, it's fine.

Oh, BTW, Oryginal sprites are fine.
(oryginal=made by you, from scratch. Recoloured sprite is not an oryginal)


But perhaps... it would be easier to just draw the comics? Really, nowadays most readers avoid sprite comics, in most cases the initial reaction is "Eugh! sprites, get it off, get it off! *Alt+F4* Yuck!"
And drawing a comic is usually more fun, and you have more possibilities, and it's not really that difficult. Possibly even easier than making a good sprite comics.

I keyed in the country code as 00-609-... but it still gives me the same error. I've been to http://www.countrycallingcodes.com and the website is actually giving me 011-60-... code. I'm sure I did put in the info correctly: calling from US to Malaysia. T_T
