You read the archives of a newly discovered comic at least once a week.<P>At least once a day.<P>You sometimes save comic images to see what format they're in and how large they are.<P>You wonder whether or not most of the webcomic audience really would be able to view PNG files okay.<P>You refer to chip clips as "wang clips".<P>

I propose (it was Falen's idea) that we join the geeks and the gamers and make our own version of the purity test. Please post questions here. When we get a reasonable number, I'll make up a page with the whole thing nicely formatted etc etc.<P>Let's see, format of the questions is usually something like: <P>

I am currently tearing my hair out in frustration as I finished reading the Sluggy archives a couple of weeks ago and I find it hard existing in a world where I can't read a hundred issues a night...
so I'm caching them now - wait a week or so...<P>Also been away for a week without internet, so have lots to catch up on - PDI/FCOE week, THL week, Exploitation Now week(s), Silly Cone V week...<P>Not bought any merchandise - however considering a Sluggy Kiki shirt.
Would love to see PDI tracker shirt come into fruition...<P>Call comic artists by first name? Yes.
Does everyone I live with know of said comic artists by name? Yes.<P>Going to save every comic onto my harddrive if horrendous things happen to poor creators and comics dissapear...? Yes.
*ooh! an excuse to start of Sluggy again! Yay!*<P>don't know any cool emoticons. Would love to know some - like that widdle octopus with bunny ears... cute! Still abuse HTML code though - thanks to help from PDI!<P>Don't have my own webcomic - too lazy. Spend too much time drawing wierd stuff for / not for Illustration course...<P>

You own a Sluggy Shirt.
It's a Quatrix/Oasis/etc... shirt.
It's signed by Pete!
I've drawn naughty pictures of ZigZag.
And they're on the web for all to see!
You have a comic on KeenSpace
And you were 'Spotted.
You didn't cash in your first check from them.<P>
