Donation To-Do List:
1. :iconsirquacky: - KUWT cast picture, along with a half-off commission ticket and three side-comics remastered deal.

Any money used will be used to improve or find a replacement for KUWT's Jigsy website.

However, I haven't decided to go with the full route of accepting money just yet. It being a Kickstarter campaign, I don't have any real idea where the money I'm being given could be used for. I'm not seeking an active publisher, and while I do want my domain, the drawback is that I know close to nothing about servers and web-design. At least not without a second-hand to help me run it to keep it running actively for fans and readers alike. What I could do is build up a KUWT website to replace it's 'temporary' spot on Jigsy, and find out a way to have it combined with it's spot on Comic-Fury. So for now while I figure that out, I'll be on Patreon taking donations.

Which, of course, I am going to discuss in this journal if you're interested.

I've talked a bit before about the benefits of donating to KUWT in the hopes that I could improve services to the readers. From the polls I seem to recall that most popular gift in return for making them as such would be a compiling of some of the classic KUWT 'side comics' over the last several years on top of Issue 1 and Issue 2 compiled together.

I've decided to make a system regarding donations. :) This is in the best hope that your continued readership can help improve the quality of KUWT over time, or at least lead to something really special in terms of getting it it's own website.

Those who donate to KUWT will receive the following gift perks sent to you the reader.

$5 - free sketch of the KUWT castmembers of your choice (3 minimum)
$10 - a sneak peek at the next page, along with a short making of tutorial on how KUWT is made
$20 - three side comics of your choice (they can be found in the side comics gallery here on my page) in full detailed color realization, along with a half-price commission offer ($5 or $10 value instead of the $10/$20)
$30 - have your OC featured in the KUWT main issue series for a cameo, either in the background or a very brief dialogue interaction

I've had my Paypal button up on keepingupwiththursday.jigsy.co… - although after 6K views, I don't recall ever having a donation, not that I can remember at least in those years being up... Maybe posting this here will fair better. :)

At any rate, thoughts...?

:)

Even though with one donation, I'm sure Jigsy's server hopefully won't be too expensive. My friend and fellow webcomic author was able to direct me to a domain site which is ridiculously cheap. When things are better, I'll give FatCow a try. :) Of course, now comes the question of being able to build the website... xD ...I went with Jigsy as it's for total newbies like me. :giggle:

Thanks. :) Maybe with another week off, I'll try and get some HTML/CSS studying going on. It's tough, though, because I'm still trying to maintain KUWT's top spot so to speak, too. x.X ...Ah well, I'll figure it out.

I will say that I was taken aback a bit by your profile picture. Aside from long hair, you haven't changed too much from that Mel Shaw pic you posted a while back.

I will say that it is an interesting thing to do. I wonder how it'll turn out. 

BTW, how do you do that XP icon.

No, I don't really know. I honestly haven't been on this site as long as you have.

Wow. Length of time being on deviantArt has nothing to do with it, even when you first signed up they've always had a menu on how to make smileys and emoticons and which ones are there. And even then, you never had to be a member of this site to make smileys and emotions, dude. xD Knowing how to make that's been with us since internet was birthed: e-mails, instant messengers, and soon.

It's... not rocket science. You haven't tried looking anywhere on how to make one?

Colon, plus P, equals the item. Semi-colon, plus P, equals a different version, but same context.
