I'm just a fourteen year old, webcomic addicted, pr0n loving boy, but I have a few suggestions for your site. It probably isn't my place to say so, but here they are-
- Advertise on other webcomic sites, for example Little Gamers, Megatokyo, or Mac Hall.
- Once you become a little more popular, sell ad space
- Get some forum admins. If you post it on the site, people will join just so that they might become an admin.
- Ditch the journal section and post rants directly under the comics. People are more likely to read them. Also, offer a friend rant space. People love that stuff
- An IRC channel would be good. Once again, post that you're giving out admin status, and they will come.
- Network in the webcomic community. THat was the key to MT's success
Sorry if these comments piss you off. If so, feel free to maul me to the ground, followed by a beating or stabbing... Your choice.
