Webcomic Above You 2014

Postby RobboAKAscooby on Thu Jan 23, 2014 2:16 am

Nobody panic!
I'm not suggesting we get this going quite yet but considering most past years have gone like this:
the past wrote:Me - It's W.A.Y. time again.
Everyone else - I'm not ready yet!!!

I thought I'd give a sizable lead time.

I'm suggesting mid-to-late March as go time but if the consensus is for a little later that's cool.

I figure with about 2 months lead time that should allow most of us to get our shit together as well as give time to promote the W.A.Y. to non-CGers and perhaps gain a larger pool of participants.


So everyone let me know if that's enough time for you guys.

Lmao exactly my thought process when I saw the thread title, oh my god.

I'd prefer a bit more into April so I have time to get further into my next chapter, though I could always just wait to join up if I don't feel prepared yet. (Also the fact that the first reviews usually don't start coming in until a week or two into the thing anyway)

I'd love if we can get some noobs up in here, though I suggest inviting people that you somewhat trust that you know will be able to contribute a good review. I'd hate to see one of us old dying whales get essentially skipped over just because someone from the netherworld didn't understand the rules or didn't care enough to follow through with their half of the thingie.

On the plus side I'm sure they'd give a "totally mature" response to being reviewed :lol:

Juses, I actually did have a bit of panic. Good, good warning, you're right. The only thing I've really cleaned up since the last one has been my font (thanks, Cuds). I've been meaning to fix some site things, now I have a deadlineish. Word.

The new Freakboy stuff won't be ready by March, but Red Slime just concluded in November (might be tricky/weird/fun to review), and there's always Webcomic Police stuff (review-reviews) or whatever else (?).

Yeah, I don't really mind re-reviews but it'd be interesting to get some new people and new webcomics involved. The other webcomics sites don't have anything like W.A.Y., so it might be a reason for people on other forums to come over here and participate.

Let's be honest here, with me back in the webcomic game it's gonna be "Make Scooby Hate Himself Fest 2014".

But on a more positive note, please do spread the word.
I'm not a member of other webcomic communities so I'm kind of relying on you guys to bring in the fresh meat new participants...

I haven't read the new stuff yet, but I'd say that you should give yourself credit for at least trying to use peer reviews to get better. You could've said "screw webcomics," thrown your art supplies in the trash, and watched TV instead, but you chose not to.

I can PM a few people on SJ about it, at least.

You can try to get the SJ people if you want. I don't want them to, like, get two PMs about W.A.Y. That'd be annoying. I'll try to think of somewhere else I can find people. Also, for any lurkers/newbies reading this post, I definitely recommend participating. It's uncomfortable, yeah, but that's kinda the whole point.

LC, why don't you get intouch with robybang and people like that who contribute to your site? Many of them have their own comics- I know roby hasn't updated his in a while but he might not mind getting it reviewed, and he might be able to suggest some people who'd like to participate.

I'll let you know who I PMed, since maybe we don't have total friend overlap and you'd be able to reach some different people.

UPDATE: Looking at where I'd like my comic to be I'm thinking mid-April might be better after all.

Yes I'm totally selfish about this XD

Well, Steel Salvation Part 2 won't start up until June at the earliest, but when we entered last year we had 16 strips, and we now have 48 (plus website improvements!) so that should be enough new material to dig into, even if we don't have a whole new chapter started.

Also, I'm a member of the Webcomic Underdogs, so I will definitely plug W.A.Y. over there. It's a pretty active forum and there are some seriously talented creators over there, so I think I can get plenty of fresh meat for our little critical potluck :D

Just a heads up since we're about to hit April, time for us all to get our acts together.

We'll give it a couple of weeks and if everyone's good we'll do this thing...
