There's this new award contest going on at Webcomic Planet: http://webcomicplanet.com

There's a bunch of categories I don't stand much of a chance in, but I think I MAY have a shot at the "design" category. I can't (shouldn't?) nominate myself, so I'd appreciate any nominations from readers! It IS the readers' choice awards. Cheesy

I think I deserve a nomination because I approach site-building from a somewhat different perspective than most. I've written too many articles about must-haves, should-haves, do NOTs, etc on my studio blog, but suffice it to say, I take webcomic webdesign very seriously. Most people do not understand how much the usability of a site effects the readability of a comic.  People who DO understand that also don't take into account bounce rates in accordance with information placement--and also "prettiness" for lack of a better word. Readers most definitely do judge a book by its cover, and the cover of a webcomic includes both the comic and site. Then there's the aspect of getting people to view pages OTHER than the comic, the information to display on those pages, etc.

So, yeah, I take it seriously. Any nominations would be much appreciated! All you gotta do is sign up for an account and write up a blurb. Smiley

Please vote for me in the "design" category--if you think I deserve it! We're trying to make this more about merit than popularity. Smiley

I voted.  It wasn't as painful as I thought.  Neither was joining the forum.  I am very surprised!
