-about the first one someone with more technical knowledge should probably answer ^^;

-that would I think be on a more personal level you discuss with your opponent. Like most characters, you'll know before you fight them if they are the "rapey" sort so you can just avoid fighting them, but if, say, you ended up somehow faced off with a molester character (of which by the way there are few but not none) in a tournament, you would probably just PM that artist and be like "look I kinda really don't want X to happen" and most artists will be respectful of that. Basically if you wanna fight someone but think theres a possibility of that, you can just contact the other artist, you dont need to put it in your bio.

-I'm pretty sure there have been other ghost characters, Hell most people thought my character was a ghost for her couple fights (my character STILL thinks shes is) so thats no problem. Obviously that means getting a little creative with scar and death matches but no, a ghost isnt too complicated =D

I believe the gallery of avatars is just recent ones you've used, so you can switch faster if you go back and forth. I think. I haven't really used that myself. If I recall it's supposed to be 100 by 100, 72dpi and either a jpg or a gif. Can't say for sure though, been so long since I changed mine.

Void is purposefully listed as a mature audiences only site because that kind of stuff might happen in comics, however most voiders are perfectly fine with agreeing to not draw a certain subject matter if you write it in your characters bio or mention is specifically. In fact, most voiders typically ask before doing something like that or its in their characters bio that they might do that. Pretty much you just have to talk to them and if you aren't comfortable, then don't battle them. though that can be hard in tournament settings. It is important to mention though that outside of the ramifications of a scar or death match, void has no established canon. So even IF something were to happen to your character in an opponents comic (or your own) and you don't want to acknowledge it. It's totally acceptable.

Ghosts are fine. The scar and death match rules are subjective for characters. A robot gets scarred and for whatever reason doesn't get himself repaired. a shapechanger gets an eye blown out, and for some reason he can't shapeshift that eye anymore. Whatever reasoning you come up with It's on that characters artist to make the scar visible somehow on their design sheet after losing a scar match. (that's why so many people on void ended up with robot arms/legs back in the past).

shrink down your intended image and try loading it again from an image host or other web location....  between 50 pixels by 50 pixels to 100x100 pixels is a good place to start

you are always able to discuss any and all terms with an artist before agreeing to a match and hopefully they will agree and stick terms(if you both agree you can even ask Staff/Council to enact/enforce special requirements to those )....scars and death however are only permanent in special matches...and if you are nervous about how a character is represented by another artist than you should be careful about who you have a match with(while coming to terms with the fact that is a BIG part of what we do around here)...because technically it is totally up to the individual artist what takes place in their comics with or without the consent of the artist or the fictional character...although I am not exactly certain who is talking about rape comics or how frequently that has actually happened....character context for one or two well established characters..... one or two idiots trying to push buttons and get attention along the way with individual comics maybe....nobody really to worry about anymore...... most of us aren't heartless assholes anyways

...and as far as death matches go...it doesn't matter what a bio or character sheet says or what the character design is; if an artist loses a death match their character is dead....if an artist loses a scar match their character has the scar as represented in the winners comic.....don't like it?..no problem.....don't enter special matches

EDIT: and I need to learn how to type faster
The scar and death match rules are subjective for characters.

...I think you mean the rules are NOT subjective for individual characters

Put the information about what is off-limits with your character right in their bio.

With the exception of one character that is literally a rapist, I can't imagine this current crowd getting THAT dark and creepy, but as long as you're open with communication about that, your wishes will most likely be respected. We're pretty nice B)

Ah, my bad wei. Might have used the word wrong. I mean that what reason a character has a scar in their storyline (or lack there of) is up to the artist who lost the match to depict.  But yes, the rule of if they have a scar or not does not depend on the character. If your character is given a scar, they HAVE to be drawn with it.

As an example, It doesn't matter if a character is a ghost, a robot, a shapeshifting being of cosmic power, or a brick. If someone gives your character a burn mark on the side of their eye in a winning scar match, then that character MUST have a burn mark on the side of their eye in your new design sheet and future battles. The ghost might be spiritually damaged, the robot might not be able to find a mechanic, the cosmic being might just think it looks awesome, and the brick might not care. But those are story reasons for it still being there, you can write whatever reasoning you want. As long as it's still there.

Sorry if I was confusing at all.

Yeah, you have to email them to a battle manager. Actually we just made staff@entervoid.com so you could use that so we all see it.

Quick q about BB's/awards. Does doing a BB break your winning streak now? Is that something that changed in the last year?

It might, even though it shouldn't.  I'll be looking into this and more regarding Awards soon.

ok, so I noticed this morning that my comic battle vs pomo was tied at 50/50 with 14 votes, and checking it recently, the percentages have changed, but the votes have stayed the same.  Now, I'm assuming that this was removed as a result of suspected cheating, but I was wondering if there's an appeal system for something like that. For whatever it's worth I haven't asked anyone to vote in my favour but I know it's totally possible for a friend on the site to vote in a biased fashion - basically if someone legitimately enjoyed my comic enough to give me that score, I'd obviously appreciate their vote.

It's quite possible that they gave pocketmouse an unfairly lesser score. Example being you got all 10's and she got all 1's or something like that. If that's the case, it'd be taken down for being done in bad faith.

There is no appeal system. Generally when we find something fishy we issue a warning which removes the offending votes. In instances of something really amiss like a bunch of shared IPs voting, it's discussed among the council.

Hello, Aingie. I submitted a charaer to Void some five years back, never battled with said character, and have since lost touch with it. I was curious as to weather or not I could substitute my old entrant and intro comic for a new one, or just submit a new character all together. Thank you for your help! 8)

There's nothing stopping you from redesigning the character! However, if it's going to be essentially a brand new character you may as well just submit a new one. That way we can see how your comic game has improved since your old submission!

Ah yes. I wouldn't want to completely erase the old character. You'll be seeing me in the incubator very soon! Thanks again.

4 questions

1. Can I use traditional art? Or does it have to be digital?


2. Can my character be my Fursona? Or do I have to create one specifically for void?


3. Are Original Species based characters allowed?


4. Can I use my fandom oc? (Undertale, Homestuck, Pokemon, etc.)


5. What happens when a character dies? Can they be revived?

1. You can use traditional, digital, and anything in between. As long as it's artwork it's A-ok.
2. You could use a fursona as long as it's your own original design. The characters you want to put on the site are completely up to you.
3. It's not just allowed but encouraged. There's a myriad of other original species on the site, if you want to make one then go for it.
4. Fandom characters aren't really allowed. We want people to create their own content.
5. When a character dies, they cannot be used unless it's a beyond battle (Non competitive comic) or when it's October, in which they can be active during the whole month. They can be resurrected in certain tournaments should you want to revive one. Considering though that characters only die in certain types of battles, I wouldn't be too concerned over it.

I hope this answered your questions, feel free to ask more if there's anything else you're curious about.

Elaborating on this:

entervoid is a community both collaborative and competitive, when you make your character you give your opponent allowance to interpret your character how they feel for their comic. Inevitably, your character may be placed in a situation you may consider "out of character", or that you otherwise find objection with. Understand that a) there is no offense intended from the opponent, and b) there is no official canon, so you can choose to ignore the story decisions of comics at your will (except of course for the results of Scar and Death matches). Knowing this, make sure you are not so personally attached to the character you submit that it would bother you to see them in situations outside your control

If I am allowed, I would like expanding a bit on "you give your opponent allowance to interpret your character how they feel for their comic. Inevitably, your character may be placed in a situation you may consider "out of character""
Um, as you read on the front page, VOID is known to be directed at Mature audiences, therefore it is possible to have your character installed in a comic, and story, that may revolve around Romance, Smut, Gore, Death, and so on. Pretty much depends on the type of character, and the artist.
However, most of us are pretty open minded, and do not mind being told NOT to do certain stuff with a character.

For example, (and apologies for using myself as an instance) I have a Lust Demon/Incubus character. That character is MEANT to portray Sexual Scenes, so when fighting me with that character, it is most likely I will draw something which will include some kind of Intimation between the fighters/characters.
However, you can always PM, or make me know through any other way that you would prefer that I avoid drawing pornographic content of your persona (and/or fursona, etc)

Um.

I think that's it. 

P.D.
Oh! There is also a thing where two or more artist can collaborate. VOID is not always about fighting each other, you can always pick a more cooperative route and team up with a partner or group to just tell stories and have fun. Drive a plot for several characters, or just crackshipping, or follow a certain rule, etcetera.
Sky isn't the limit in here, you can come up with whatever you want.

You make your own decisions and adventures in VOID, after all.


With that said, welcome aboard. We hope to see your illustrations and Comics soon. ^^
