Heyo babs, I am currently searching for new Co-Founders to help me run WCR. I'm super proud of how our Contributors have been successfully curating the Featured gallery, so I'm thinking it's time to pass on the torch to one or two of them, so we can get more new Contributors set up with folders and display their work in WCR in a more timely manner.
So, to apply:
--Must be a current Contributor who participates in the Submissions voting, and does so correctly (So you know how to follow the rules and all that). I can look at the logs, and I will be checking.
--Must be willing to curate gallery folders subjectively. The three big rules is that it has to be easily readable, of a decent quality production and not a fan-art comic. You might piss people off in the process, that's just part of gallery curation unfortunately. We can't give a folder to everybody, it's just not feasible, so as long as we all draw the line fairly and following the same rules everything's cool. The art style doesn't have to be totally pro, but let's stay away from stick-figure comics. If Little Johnny wants to make a Naruto comic, he can post it in the Naruto fans groups. And for the love of God, please no Comic Sans fonts...
-- Must be willing to terminate unused folders fairly. Usually we do the Winter Purge, where once a year we clean out the galleries of folders that haven't been used for one year. (Merry Christmas, eheh....) If a comic hasn't been updated for an entire year, we need to free up that gallery space for another user who's going to actually use it. That's just how it is. The only caveat to this rule is that if a comic is -quite obviously finished- like the Brothers comic ((here: webcomics-rock.deviantart.com/…
it has a definite ending page there)) Then this comic would have a permanent place in our galleries. Everybody loves a comic that actually has an ending to its story, so it stays put. Making comics is hard, and there are so many comics that just die after a while, so it's good to celebrate the ones that are finished successfully.
So, if you're interested in helping out... Post a comment here, or note me directly at MagusFerox
. Your best bet would be to note me directly, I'd see it sooner. Also note, I'm not going anywhere personally, I just don't participate here as often as I once did, so it's time to get some helpers.
Happy comicking, and thanks for being awesome!
