Is it common practice to vote on your own comic? I noticed I had the option to vote on my intro, and also it occurred to me that with battles, if you wanted to vote on your opponents comic you'd also have to score your own, correct?
How do people tend to go about that?

That definitely shouldn't be happening! Post about it in the bugs thread because you're not supposed to be able to vote on your own comic.

Ah well, I haven't actually voted on mine (because I didn't know what I would give myself), but the little voting boxes are under my comic when I view it. Perhaps its a case of if I actually tried to use them they just wouldn't work?

I've come across this too, and as a test, shit voted myself when battling someone else. It doesn't affect the scoring on either side as far as I've tested, so I assume it doesn't work at all.

But I can imagine it would cause confusion to some, so yeah it's best to get that sorted out.

Yeah I've noticed/brought this up before I think once. For some reason when a character is new and the intro story goes up it doesn't realize that you are the owner of the character on the comic page. Everything after that though works, its just on the intro comics.

I know how to view the characters I've hitlisted, but how do I see who has hitlisted my character?

It's the same as a regular match, but the loser of said match is scarred and has to redraw their design sheet to reflect the scar given. Double Scar Matches has everyone involved scarred.

I have a few questions! Mostly because I can't figure out how to use the new site because it's been AAAGES since I was here uAu;

>What size, absolutely, do the design sheets have to be? I found "around 800 pixels squared," but is there an absolute size they cannot be? Is it bad if some are a little over that? I assume width-wise it's for the forums so as not to stretch, but is it bad if it's a little taller? I need to practice drawing small again u___u or just shrinking down my stuff once it's done.

>One of the admins mentioned that you can do anything for a comic. Is there a place I can find specific guidelines on handling NSFW or 18+ stuff? I don't necessarily want to just come in here and draw porn, but the character I would like to submit has a habit of being naked often and I didn't want to get in trouble/wanted to know if there was a censorship or age-protection thing going on here. As an artist I sometimes forget nudity can be offensive so I just want to make sure in case I do something wrong LOL

>Once more, what are the dimensions of the comics? It's 800 wide by... is it 1000 tall for max? xAx;

>I know ideally you're supposed to post finished stuff in the Incubator, but I was wondering if I could post a "polished" and colored rough just to get the idea/feedback before I lineart and finish it up? It's alright to do that, yes? Considering my lineart takes me hours and I don't want to lose some time having to go back and fix stuff [especially if it's major] if I have to. Time conservation, really! I hope that's ok.

>ONE LAST THING- phew! I'm currently going to college, but I'm on my winter break as of now. I know production of comics will come to an extreme slow when school starts back up, so I was wondering... We don't have to post a certain amount of drawings a day/week or whatever, right? It's just when we get challenged? Because I would absolutely LOVE to join and practice my deadline AND comic skills (I'm bad at managing personal deadlines so VOID could really help me out) but I can't promise I can be 100% active when not in a battle. ;____;

Thanks! I look forward to submitting a character! [Edited because I forgot to finish a sentence <___<]

There is no set guidelines for page sizes, just you ideally want your pages to be below 500KB. Pretty much as long as it's not stupidly massive as if you didn't resize you're fine.

There is no specific guidelines for adult material on the site. We have had straight up porn and rape and gore on the site. I think as long as it's not going to get you arrested if you draw it, you can draw it on the site. (so yeah, no child porn)

You don't have to do a specific amount of comics. You just have to do a comic once every 6 months to avoid getting marked inactive. Nothing bad happens if you're marked inactive, I believe you just need to battle again and you're fine.

Thanks! Good to know and I'll def. keep those in mind when drawing.

One last question: Some of the characters have "winning" and "losing" poses- are those a part of the submissions for characters, or are those just from the old website?

The Winning and Losing poses were for a feature to be implemented that never was.  So it's an artifact of a bygone era.  But enough people have it so it sticks.  It's not essential and basically if you want to do it for fun, you can.

So we can still do it for fun? Awesome! Thanks so much! :D

Yes.  Or else you won't be allowed to continue battling.

What do I do if I accidentally post twice on someone's comic? I didn't think I hit send but apparently I hit it twice. "orz

Don't worry about it. You can always "modify" the second comment to say something else if you really want but it happens, no one's going to mind

I did my own thumbnails, where do I send them?

To the battle squad, angieness@gmail.com and bdotscotts@gmail.com They must be 100X150 and named thumb01, thumb02, thumb03, etc. and must be jpegs. Thumbnails that do not fit those requirements do not work on the site.

The front page of this thread is now updated with almost all the questions! I left out a few that were repeats.

OK, here's some questions:

What is the site's policy on submitting characters we've used in previous things? Like, we used then in a previous comic, or they were our player character in an online game.

Also, do design sheets and intro stories have to be drawn by me, or can they be collaborations too?

that's totally fine as long as they don't violate copyright laws.

Well, how do you plan on doing comics on void? If you want to write AND draw, then I would say your intro and design sheet should definitely be 100% drawn by you.

We do have artist and writer teams (see Starker http://entervoid.com/index.php?action=character;id=2020 who is a character that belongs to EvilEye, the writer, but is drawn by Roflqu.)

We definitely encourage collaboration, it just has to be clear to your opponent WHO they are up against. Do you have a friend you were planning on collaborating with? What's your plan?

As long as it's not a fan character or infringing on anyone else's copyright, you can use any character you have already made. So a character from a comic you made would be fine, but not a character made for an online game. For instance, my character Angela Rudell I used for years for my own stuff prior to Void. But I couldn't submit my WoW character as they belong to Blizzard.

Design sheets and intros must be drawn by you unless you get permission from Toast to have a collab character.
