Hey guys!

tumblrcomicsinitiative:

Just want to let you know that we’re still around. The three co-conspirators of the Tumblr Comics Initiative are still planning how we should handle this project, especially in light of past brainstorming and recent changes on Tumblr. It’s also tough getting all three of us in the same place at the same time.

So, basically, if you’re still interested in contributing something to this project, let us know by liking or reblogging this post!

Reblogging as a reminder!

Emails, Screennames, etc

howdy everyone,

For those of us who just continually use the Tumblr dashboard instead of checking other people’s actual pages and therefore do not see any contact info, this is going to be a list of emails and screennames for easier communication and collaboration. Reply to this thread with whichever means of contact you feel comfortable with, if you would like to be added.

When working with a large, diverse group of people spread across so many time zones, it’s important to have a good place to store information so everyone can access it whenever and where ever they are. Obviously, Tumblr is not this place. Google Docs has been mentioned, and we’ve had a suggestion for a Livejournal or Dreamwidth community, but we’d like to know what you think. Creating a wiki could also be a possibility, so if someone has experience with starting a wiki, please give us your knowledge in the form of a reblog or a message in the ask box!

Since this is a collaborative project, we want to know what would work for everyone else. We want to share the final product on Tumblr because that’s where this project started, and we’d like to keep it as near to ‘home’ as possible. However, we’re going to need a place to share information and ideas, where it’s easy to find a fact but it’s also easy to edit.

So, we’ve got some questions so we can narrow this down and get started on the fun stuff. What platform do you think would work best for sharing information? What’s the most convenient for you? Is there another website you would suggest which would give us the same end result? Let us know!

Reblogging for the afternoon crowd.

rockpapertheodore asked: So, are these going to be, like, set on Earth? Or is this set in a fantasy, alternate universe Earth-like planet?

We honestly don’t have an answer yet. Right now we’re leaving it pretty open to interpretation until/unless we have a moment of divine inspiration.  

theelderfrog asked: How does one get on this magic list of potential collaborators?

By messaging this blog with info about what you would like to contribute!

Just leave it in the ask box and we’ll do the rest. 

birdhead asked: why don't you guys consider a dreamwidth or lj comm or something similar? at least for communicating amongst yourselfs/official organising. I'm not planning on getting involved, I have no horse in this race, but this project looks really cool and it seems like it would be a million times easier to run off tumblr. I have DW invites if they're wanted.

This is a very good idea and we are considering it. Thank you for the suggestion!

nekomatsus asked: I stumbled across this on my dashboard and got all excited. I'd love to be involved (with writing, character ideas, or just beta-ing), so I thought I'd message you since, uh, I can't figure out how to reply to the post for Collaboration. Do I have to be given posting access first?

You can reblog the original post and respond, or you can leave it in the tumblr ask box, as you just did. (Though, if you don’t mind, could you send it again so I can keep it here until I make the list?)

I’m happy to give you posting access if you send me your email address. 

batsecretary asked: Inspired by the person who suggested ComicChat, but maybe when things start getting off the ground people could look at making AIM chatroom(s) to talk about Comics Initiative stuff. If we just designate a general chat name that is used, it shouldn't be too hard for everyone to start talking amongst themselves. It's how my RP comm organizes itself and seems to work pretty well and it's also a great way to get to know people.

This is definitely an idea to keep in mind. 

Right now i’m thinking a combination of

Some form of chatroom

GoogleDocs

This tumblr

and people sharing their emails/instant messengers

dorkward asked: Just want to say this is a pretty brilliant idea. (Though I have absolutely no clue how to use Google Docs, I can learn). Will it be set in real or imagined places? Or a combination of the two?

Whatever people come up with. It can one or the either or both, depending on what direction people go in. So basically: there are no limits!
