re: Lots of Various Questions

@Cavechan I guess sorta but to a point? Like I can't let my readers control everything I do. I understand making it a readable format, but after a certain point, it makes me uncomfortable to read my own manga and I don't think that's fair to me as a creator.

re: Concerns about the page credit system from the reader's perspective

@gunderstorm the creator perspective matters. We have to post as pages as that is the option it gives us. It is up the the creator to determine what constitutes a page, though surely put forward your views as a reader. 

As far as I understood, we really have no way of changing how much each page costs other than one credit or free. As creators...

re: Concerns about the page credit system from the reader's perspective

I have a few points on this, so forgive me:

1. Scrolling format can go both ways. As @CronaJ said, vertical or scrolling comics can make less if they upload all their panels as a single page. So in some ways it can be cheaper. 

2. However on the other side, I disagree with that statement because, learning some things from webtoons and tapas...

Animation feedback?
I have a long animation I am making for my Naor series. I am a little stuck on a particular short scene that I can't tell if it is too jerky/laggy or if it is ok and smooth. Can I have your opinions?

The animation is only in rough colors, it will be a lot cleaner and less sketchy looking when done, so try to ignore...

re: Question about viewcounts & the browse algorithm.

@rolling-vegetable

I think if we made like-counts available only to their creators, it would be ok. I am so scared that a lot of the ranking based systems, while needed, will spiral out of control like it did on Webtoons. It got to the point of sabotage and petty people doing their best to undermine other creators as it breeds jealousy and other...

re: Question about viewcounts & the browse algorithm.

Ok, I spent some time thinking about this, @Nimloth.

The main things I have noticed in terms of needs are this:

1. An active subscriber count per comic. This is basic stuff and will help a lot in my own analysis reports since I keep excel documents of all my websites to keep track of which benefit me more than others.

2. I agree with @rolling-veget...

re: Introduce Your Comic and You!

@Cavechan AH THANKS! The style is in a bit of a transition period right now. OTL I experimented a LOT with the comic as I made the Prologue and Chapter 1, now I am going back to redo them to make it more consistent. I really love that manga look you have and I wish I could emulate the manga style a lot more. You seem to have it pretty down pat!

re: Lots of Various Questions

@Cavechan -- I also make my comic with a page in mind since I print my comics as well. I find that for most comic websites so far, they want the vertical scrolling option, which I personally DESPISE. Not because it is clumsy and hard to read, but because I HATE making a second version of my comic. If you don't make a scrolling version, you get...
