Quick question - as of writing this, it has been 13 days since I submitted my application. If it hits 14, should I try re-applying, or is my comic still in the system and I should just wait?

Thanks!

At the moment - as far as I am aware - all applications that have been submitted have successfully been put into the system but the system is not sending out the seven day email notice. If you try and re-apply for the same account, you'll get a message that says "that name is taken" or something to that effect.

However, that only applies to the applications that did everything properly but were let down by the system. Applications that made a mistake or didn't follow the first confirmation email would still expire after fourteen days and require re-application.

I read in another board that they are suspending making sites or whatever, so is that why I haven't received any info? After I submitted my comic thing, I got the email about "this is your name and click this link to activate" but it's been over a week and nothing else has occurred (no password has been sent) Are they going to be accepting new webcomics in the future or is it more of a permanent delay? Or was my account just lost or something? Will my username become available again soon even if I entered the code?

No only domains.

email is StrRedWolf's forte so let him work.

offhand, short of moving the forum/email server, the reverse dns might be shot in moving the mail.

Also at&t broadband IS blocking some email.

Apologies to everyone.

No new news at the moment - not sure if that's good or bad. STrRedWolf is still working on it. We're not sure exactly what the problem is and no, it hasn't happened before as far as I am aware.

Thank you for your kind regards, Dr Neo Lao. :) I understand, these things happen. Hope you'll all get to fix it soon- sounds tricky.
I'm excited to get my comic up and running, but until then I'll be waiting patiently! :)

For those who have not received a final "your account is ready!" email:

- Go to the domain that you requested and see if your account is active. If you signed up for the comic "mycomic" then your url would be mycomic.comicgenesis.com

- If it is active, then go to this page in the CGWiki. Read the bit in the middle about how to change / get an FTP password.

Once you have your FTP password, log into SiteAdmin with your forum username and password and inside there you will see how to add your comic to your forum account so you can edit settings. To make changes to your comic itself, use the FTP password to log into your comic account directly with an FTP program such as Filezilla or SmartFTP.

- If it is not active then that means your account is still stuck in the application part of the server. Post here and let us know and we'll give the server another thump.

sorry, I'm a bit computer illiterate- if my account were active like what you're talking about, would it say something other than "404 not found"?

In which case I am still having the same issues as listed above, before... I want to get this started -__-.

somethingcomic.comicgenesis.com is still inactive. Thanks for the help thus far! I know server issues can be tricky if not downright confusing at times, so I can sympathize with the CG Admins on this one.

Okay, the bad news is that we don't know what is causing the new-member breakage.

The worse news is that STrRedWolf is pretty much the only person who can fix it, but has not appeared on the forums for a few days (might be sick or working). Hopefully it's because he's elbow deep in the server working out what is going on.

We appreciate your patience and apologise for the delay. I know that it can be frustrating being held back when you are trying to do something creative.

As annoying as it is, at the moment the only advice I can give is "please hold"... :(

(For those who were not aware, CG is basically run by two people - Kisai and STrRedWolf. Both are part-time employees of KeenSpot Entertainment (which owns CG) and both have their normal day jobs to put food on the table with. All the other staff (such as myself) are forum volunteers who can give advice and help out but don't have access to the server to conduct repairs.)
