EDIT: If you are listed, or wish to be listed, please read!

===== To Advertise Your Comic Here =====


First of all, you must be a member of the group. If you aren't already, there is a Join button at the top.

To have your story featured and continued to be listed in the comic directory: comic-makers-club.deviantart.c…
You MUST link back to the directory on your own page/website. This link must at least be on the front page of the website, or the first page of the comic in the artists description.

To do so, you use the Link tags on the right hand side of the journal page (comic-makers-club.deviantart.c…), preferably the one listed as "Link". You then past that link using a link code such as < a href="fav. me/d54o6qb">Comic Directory</a > (without the space between the "<" and the "a" at the start and the "a" and the ">" at the end, and remove the space between fav. and me/)

Think about it, if no one links to the directory, then no ones comic gets seen. So, to be listed, it is mandatory you link back to the directory! We need every person who can to link to this directory everywhere they can! It will get you more views, I guarantee it. If you think you don't need to do it, please consider how many other people think that same way, that's a lot less people to become potential readers because they don't see a link to the directory.

The Comic Directory is a sorted, organized list of our member's comics, if they choose to have them listed.

This list is kept organized and we go through at least once a month to be sure these comics are still active and that the links work, so have no fears! Canceled and discontinued comics will be removed from the list.

While being listed is easy, we have a few specifications. Anyone who ignores a step will not be listed.

  • Note the group-do not post here, send a note-with the form below.
  • Your comic must be easy to read, or buy. The first page should link to the second page, etc. or members who click on the link for your comic must be able to quickly see what it is about and how to purchase it.
  • Note the group if your comic status becomes Completed, Hiatus, or Canceled by sending the group a note with the comic title and genres so we can find it.
  • You must link to this directory on the first page of your comic in the artists description and/or the first page of your website. .
  • If your comic has multiple locations, such as on Drunk Duck, SmackJeeves, etc. let us know.


===== Send a Note to the Group with: =====

  • The title of your comic (Please send 1 note per comic, so we can stay organized)
  • The Genre(s) of your comic. You may choose up to 4 from the list below.
  • A link to your comic's first page, or where to purchase the comic. If you have multiple locations, provide up to 3.
  • A short, 300 characters or less explanation of your comic. This is like your "blurb", the back cover definition that gets readers to want to read your work.
  • If your comic is Adult Only, let us know by putting "Adult Content" in the subject line. Adult Only is not gore unless it is excessive, such as something that would be banned from public television. Primarily we're focusing on sexual/adult situations. R rated comics and above.
  • You may send a small logo, such as :iconrakkushi1plz::iconrakkushi2plz::iconrakkushi3plz: or similar. We prefer it be a .png with a transparent background. This will go above your comic's information.
  • 4 thumbnails you feel best fit your comic. OR a banner for your comic that is no more than 200 pixels tall, and 500 pixels wide.
  • -----------------------------------


===== Genres =====



Please allow at least 1 week to be listed.

Comics will be listed in alphabetical order.

If you are unsure where your comic should go, browse the directory and look at the comics already listed.
We're now open for listings!

So, something like this would be Fantasy and Anthropomorphic?
And Suspense/Drama, though that's not too obvious now.

Can other hosting sites be added later on?


If I'm entirely sure wheather it fits a genre or not, is there anyone I can ask?

For example, how exactly is the Mystery/Crime/Detective genre defined?
Would it still "count" if the Characters are more-or-less dragged into the crime investigation and far more concerned with their personal problems (which partly overlap with the case) while they solve it mostly due to (un)lucky Accidents?
(Okay, that kinda sounds like comedy...it's more assault and kidnapping involving older teens that are far too brave for their own good.)

Does Action/Adventure require a clear moral binary or goals that are always straightforward, or is anything that involves enough fights, running away and explosions admissible?
Must these be necessarily against enemies?
(Mostly asking for later)

Sorry, if I'm being a bother, I'm kind of nervous about screwing up.

-So, something like this would be Fantasy and Anthropomorphic?
With what i've seen so far of it, it looks like you would get the most reader interest through fantesy. But that really depends on you and what readers you are looking to interact with. 

-Can other hosting sites be added later on?
Yes, just note the group with the name of your comic and the genre it's listed in and we can get that updated for you.

-If I'm entirely sure wheather it fits a genre or not, is there anyone I can ask?
You can note the group, or ask in the comments section of the front page. We do also have little flavor text in the genre listings for each one. For example at the top of the Mystery/Crime/Detective genre listings, it says. "Who-done-it and puzzles! This is the mystery section! Detectives out hunting for the killer, police out trying to find the kidnapped girl, a lone heroine searching to find the answers!" So, basicly anything where the readers are following the clues to a big reveal.

-
Does Action/Adventure require a clear moral binary or goals that are always straightforward, or is anything that involves enough fights, running away and explosions admissible?
Not really. The genre does tend to have fights, athletes and big, showy explosions. When you get ready to upload the comic you feel would fit in this genre, let us know and we can give you a better idea of where it would fit. 

You're not bothering at all. Hope this helped!

¿En verdad es necesario un logo de mi comic, cuando les envie el note a su grupo?
RavynCrescent's avatar
RavynCrescentProfessional Artisan Crafter
Logo no es necesaria, es sólo opcional, para aquellos que tienen uno y quieren agregó.

Y solo para aclarar todo, ¿cuando tengo que decir el estado de mi comic, osea eso de ¨Completed, Hiatus or Canceled¨?
RavynCrescent's avatar
RavynCrescentProfessional Artisan Crafter
Si usted no está trabajando en el cómic, está en hiato. Si es completa, entonces que haya terminado con él. Preferimos usted nos deja saber en cuanto se produzca cualquiera de estado. Así, háganoslo saber dentro de una semana, si es posible. Nos gusta hacer esto para que todo el mundo sabe la lista se actualiza y actual.

A ver si entendi bien. Para que mi comic sea presentado y continue asi, ¿debo vincular otra vez al directorio en la primera pagina de mi comic, en la descripcion del artista?
RavynCrescent's avatar
RavynCrescentProfessional Artisan Crafter
, por favor. Para su comic para ser presentado, deberá mantener un vínculo con el directorio en alguna parte de la página.
Artie-stico17's avatar

¿En la primera pagina o en todas las paginas del comic?

Primera página está bien

I'm taking care of the link asap ! Do you mind if I use the group's avatar as a button to make the link more "visual" on my website ?

Also I was wondering, is there an unsorted list (I mean, not sorted by genre) of all the comics listed in the group somewhere around ;) ?
RavynCrescent's avatar
RavynCrescentProfessional Artisan Crafter
Sure! You can go ahead and use the group's avatar!

There isn't an unsorted list anywhere, sorry :( To list every comic in the group would be an impossible task! So I have to wait till the creators contact me about listing them in our directory.

Thanks again for the clarification. Anyway, I've got the link on my blog site & I'll have it in the description area of my comics as suggested.
RavynCrescent's avatar
RavynCrescentProfessional Artisan Crafter
Great! I knew it wasn't people just dodging the rule, I figured it was just a matter of them not knowing how, or where.

Okay, I'll add a link. Gimme a couple days to patch it in though, K?
RavynCrescent's avatar
RavynCrescentProfessional Artisan Crafter
Sure!
SkeyeDragon's avatar
I wasn't really sure where to put it before, which is why I didn't do anything. I put it in my artist's descriptions, it seems to work there. ^__^

Thanks for the clarification though!
RavynCrescent's avatar

No problem! I realized after a few notes people sent me about it, that many people didn't see it, or just, like you, didn't know where, so I decided to emphasis on where good places might be, and then make them mandatory, as I truly believe the more people who know about this, the better!

Okeydokey, all done! :D I put the link in the first page of Werewolf Universe and from now on it'll appear on every new page! I don't see my comic listed yet, but I guess it's just still in the process of being listed ;)
RavynCrescent's avatar
RavynCrescentProfessional Artisan Crafter
Very smart! Your comic should be misted, be sure to check all the genres and look carefully. Did you get a reply from me to the note you sent?
Vixenkiba's avatar
Vixenkiba General Artist
And nope, it's in none of the genres I put in my comic ;) The last reply I got from you was "AWESOME" ;D
RavynCrescent's avatar
RavynCrescentProfessional Artisan Crafter
AH! I see why! I asked you to re-send the note as it got archived and you never re-sent the note ;) That's why your comic wasn't listed.

I was able to find the original, archived conversation! So I have your comic info and I'll replace the bio with the shorter one you wrote.

It'll only be in the Adults Only section, but all the sub genres will be listed with it ^_^

Okeydokey! Thanks a lot! :D Problem solved, yay!
