kawaiidaigakusei and I have been doing newsposts for a while now, so we have put together a set of guidelines that should make it easier to DDers to know how to get their news on the front page!
Please leave any feedback for us here! ^_^
How do I get my milestone/other news in a newspost?
You can send a PQ to HippieVan and/or kawaiidaigakusei, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com.
If timing is important to you, kawaii does Monday newsposts and HippieVan does them on Friday. Otherwise you can send your news to either or both of us.
We don’t have any way of tracking milestones on our end, so if you want something in the news it has to be sent to us!
What kind of news should I send you?
Just about anything related to DrunkDuck, webcomics, or comics in general that you think other DDers might find interesting! If in doubt, send it along anyway – the worst that will happen is we won’t end up including it in the newspost.
Some examples of things that are “newsworthy”:
- A comic milestone
- Having your comic published/printed
- Running a kickstarter for your comic
- Winning an award/being featured/interviewed elsewhere
- Running a contest for your comic
- Community projects! We love to promote these!
- Other interesting news from the webcomicking world
What is a milestone?
- Completing a comic
- Page milestones by 25s (so the 25th page, 50th, 75th, and 100th could all be separate milestones) or chapter milestones. Either of these is fine, but please only choose one to send us.
- Anniversaries by year
What won't we put in a newspost?
The things that we exclude from newsposts are basically just the things that happen too frequently to be newsworthy: namely new comics and going on/coming back from hiatus.
We will make an exception if these can be “piggybacked” onto another milestone. E.g. You have completed a comic and are starting a new one, your comic is coming back from hiatus and is hitting 50 pages, etc.
How will my milestone be featured in the newspost?
If you just let us know about a milestone and don't provide us with anything else, generally we’ll use your comic thumbnail and just say something like “(Comic) has reached 100 pages!” At our own discretion we may add more to this.
If you don’t want us to use your comic thumbnail, you can send us a banner up to 395px wide by 125px tall. You can also send us a short write-up about your comic or milestone, around 50 words or so.
Hey! That person's comic milestone got a bigger picture/longer write-up/was more visible in the newspost than mine!
There are a couple reasons this might happen. Extra special milestones - like reaching 1000 pages - may be featured more prominently.
The other thing to note is that milestones typically go at the bottom of a newspost. So if there isn't a lot of other news one week, the milestones will be closer to the top and may seem more visible.
A lot of this has been taken/adapted from skoolmunkee's old newspost guidelines, so credit to her!
Here are some guidelines to posting in this board as well
1. Keep it clean, or warn people - If your comic or whatever you're showing off has some NSFW content, mark it as so. THINK OF THE CHILDREN, DANG IT!
2. Be nice - Don't be going and posting things like “OMG your comic is lame PLEASE DIE IN A ROADSIDE DITCH AND DECOMPOSE” in other people's topics. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but flaming is a no-no. Be respectful, people.
3. NO SPAM - Okay, I lied. This one's a rule. If you're advertising anything that's spam (ie. free iPods, or online poker, or eBay auctions) then it'll most likely get killed on sight. We won't get mad if you're like selling a print version of your webcomic, or something other that's legit, but be reasonable, kay?
4. Clear topic titles - Do everyone a favour and name your topic with a meaningful title. “LOLZ NEW OCMICZ” is not descriptive, and will most likely be changed by me to something better. You'll also be doing yourself a favour by bringing more readers in.
