News & Events / BOOTCAMP ROUND ROBIN EVENT Signup Thread
« on: Apr 15, 2019, 09:22 AM »
Do you feel like you have a wealth of ideas you wanna put to page but have all the trouble with actually getting pages out to begin with? Do you find yourself unable to finish your comic battles more often than not? Don’t lose hope, let our experienced coaches help you figure out how to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps with the very first



Based on the successful training program started by Angieness and continued by PyrasTerran, where we help members develop the time management skills needed to get a full comic out for a battle without resorting to too many late nights and last minute submissions. The Bootcamp Round Robin Event is designed to train four participants in a simulated three round bracketed tournament through a brand new format to enterVOID: The Round Robin.

A round robin format is a tournament design in which each of the four participants faces each other once, regardless of win or loss, so everyone has three battles by the end (under normal competitive circumstances, the contestant who won the most battles or accrued the most points would then be the victor of a round robin).

This gives every participant the opportunity to create three comics as if they managed to reach the finals of a tournament, able to tell their whole arc story in its entirety (or stick to episodic stand alone ideas, the choice is yours). For this tournament, each battle will be a two-week drawing period.

And since this is a Bootcamp event, each contestant will be randomly assigned a coach (could be me, could be another member) who will provide their participant with a schedule to help reach a completed comic, as well as help with scripting and art critique however the coach sees fit. The coach’s primary goal first and foremost is to help you figure out a good time management plan so that you can improve on your speed and completion skills, which in turn will give you less stress in future battles and let you focus more on other elements of improvement. This system has been pretty successful in previous Bootcamp projects and we’re excited to see how we can help other artists with their completion rate.

Now, because this is an event designed more for personal growth than for competition, you don’t have to feel too much pressure on your character’s rankings as every battle will be registered as a sparring match, lowering the pressure of those stakes should help you focus on solid completed comics. And since the voting period does not mean anything since everyone will be fighting everyone once anyway, the break period between battles will be 3 days, instead of a whole week, as we don’t have to wait for voting periods to end. This means that even though each battle is a 2 week drawing period, the entirety of the event will be closer to the tournament duration of a speed death tournament. If there is a serious conflict in schedule, the break period between battles can be extended or shortened by a day or two if both parties agree to it.

Every participant who is able to make three completed comics will earn the official title of Bootcamp Round Robin Graduate. The participant who manages this and also earns the most wins or average score (in the event of a tie) will receive the title Bootcamp Round Robin Valedictorian. There is no penalty if you are unable to complete a comic, you can still continue on to your next two battles. In the event that you are unable to continue working on battles, your character will still be added to the next match for your opponent to make a comic off of (since these are sparring matches, even if you default, it will not affect you). In this specific situation alone, you are allowed to let any other member who is willing, to take your place using your character for that battle. Of course, if they complete a comic in your stead it will not count towards the Graduate or Valedictorian title.

If we get four participants in time, the event begins April 21 (we may push it back if we need more time to gather four participants). If you wish to sign up, do so on this thread along with your character of choice (you may choose your own living character or borrow a living one from another member with their permission). You cannot swap out characters between rounds, though. We will be looking for participants who we feel will benefit most from this program. If you are not selected, chances are high that we feel you are good enough that you don’t need our guidance as much! But you can always sign up for the regular Bootcamp regimen that PyrasTerran runs in any case.

News & Events / EnterVoid Grading System Discussion
« on: Mar 06, 2019, 10:10 AM »
hey everyone, we recently sent out a survey concerning entervoid's voting/grading system and asked you your thoughts on how it's doing and what we can do to improve it. We decided the results of this survey should be made public so that everyone can see what the general population of the site tends to think about how the voting categories are defined, and opinions on its effectiveness. Through discussion with everyone we hope it benefits the members to think on how the majority are defining the categories and what we can do to clarify sections so even more people are voting with the same ideas in mind. For those of who you feel it is unfair, now is your chance to give a voice to your grievances and see what we can do about improving the system for everyone

Concerning the short answer portion: The number one suggestion was adding a fourth writing section, and the number two suggestion was greater clarification of the three categories.

News & Events / ..-||BEST OF VOID 2018||-..
« on: Jan 11, 2019, 09:38 PM »
2018 was a year of transition, as we say goodbye to old members and hello to new ones, start looking at the site differently from what it used to be, throughout the trials and tribulations we managed to pull out great comics and hit new heights! Who will claim the most coveted and vaunted titles of last year? You decide! Just nominate your three top picks (up to three) for each category and once we tally the choices, we'll gather the majority selections of each and put them up on polls for you to vote, propelling the most-voted candidates to the Winner's Circle to claim all the bragging rights. To help you guys along, the mods have tirelessly compiled some relevant info and data to help you vote.  Remember these categories are for comics and artists featured here in the year of 2018!

Voting for nominees begins on the 13th of January and will remain open for one week, at which point the nominees will be selected and presented for a final vote to determine the winners of each category, announced during the last week of January.

These two stages should give you plenty of time to think critically and/or reread classics of 2018!


CLICK HERE TO VOTE [Deadline: January 20]

You can only vote once, but if you wish to change your votes, contact Pyras before the deadline.

News & Events / ]ELECTION 2018
« on: Dec 04, 2018, 08:01 PM »
As Retribution rages on and Mayor Gumshoe refuses to let the press know whether or not he's seeking re-election, the machines politique march onward, and the people must once again decide on their ambiguously canon leader to run the chaotic metropolis of New Void City! It's time for another


The way this works is simple:

Two or more characters will face off in a comic battle royale, each drawing a campaign/election related comic. The previous mayoral character is automatically signed up if they wish to seek re-election.
The winner becomes the new Mayor of Void City
*

*(this is not an official title like those for tournament champions, but rather a fun way to shake up the collective "canon" we artists use for Void City)

Jane Blonde faced off against Buster Jones to earn her seat, and you can read that comic [here]
After Blonde's resigning, a political battle was waged between Buster Jones, Koosh-Koosh, Conway and Gumshoe, leaving Gumshoe coming out on top as Mayor. You can read that comic [here]

The comics do not have to follow any set narrative path. You don't have to literally write your character winning the campaign in your comic, acceptance speech and all (and it might be more fun to not do this and add to the air of mystery of who will be mayor), it could be a specific story that happens during the campaign season. You can read previous battles to get an idea.

Now like any election for office, candidates must meet a list of requirements to be selected, and no more than six characters will be selected for the battle royale. Please be courteous if you are not chosen for this election.

Candidate Qualifications*
1) Candidate must be a full grown adult
2) Candidate must be a registered citizen of Void City (not a just a resident, or fresh off the boat/spaceship/interdimensional portal)
3) Candidate must have paid their debt to society for any past crimes (payment of fines, jail time, community service, etc.) ((don't worry you don't have to have had this happen in comic form or anything but identifying it in your comic would be nice. Essentially your character can't be a wanted criminal anymore in the comic))
4) Administrative experience is NOT a requirement (but will be taken in as a plus for qualification)
*You can still technically sign up for Election with a character that doesn't meet these qualifications if you're creative or clever enough, check out Jaques' run as 'Buster Jones' in the previous Election battle

SIGNUP DEADLINE
Signups will end once enough candidates have been selected (at least two, ideally four, no more than six), or end on the 27th with Gumshoe running unopposed and automatically winning as Mayor for another 2 years.

DRAWING DATE AND DEADLINE
Once the candidates have been selected, a reasonable date, drawing time and deadline will be negotiated with the artists participating in the battle, in order to accommodate for the best chance for all artists to give it their best. Starting time will ideally be as early as possible.

Good luck, future Mayor!
