Hey Admin

Just throwing this out as an idea for everyone to read.  Have you ever thought about expanding the site to include some MMORPG humor?  Thought of this today after seeing a tab for Cool Comics and all that is there is ExtraLife, when this is a MMORPG site.  I am sure there are lots of members out there that have great ideas for comic strips.  I have no idea who would draw them, but I think it would just add some extra spark for others to return to the site.  I mean, the only reason I go to penny-arcade every MWF is because of the new comic strips.  I just think it would increase traffic and keep people coming back.

    How about a monthly contest of sorts......the winner gets one of the monthly game givaways.

    Well you could do that, but I ment more of a type of thing where someone draws a strip two or three times a week that is just about MMORPGs and you could even get comics and ideas from members.  Would give a great sense of contributing to the site.

    Ok, here's an awesome spin on your idea Squee.. someone submits a screenie of something in-game.  Then empty "talk bubbles" are edited onto the pic.  We hold a contest with people making up conversations of the animal/monster/people in the pic.  This is done in a contest type way and the funniest conversation gets stamped on the pic and displayed on a weekly or monthly basis. 

    IMPORTANT: This isn't my idea, this is something that they were doing in the SWG forums.  I don't know if they do it any more because non-subscribers are not permitted in the forums anymore.  Also, they said they would update the contest monthly- but it took like 2-3 damn months for the results. image

    It sounds really simple but it is very fun and entertaining.

    Well, actually - normally the ExtraLife comic is about games...lately it has not been though.  Hopefully we will see more MMORPG comics in that strip.

    I would LOVE it if someone had a strip they wanted to post here.  Just send me samples :)

    well my friend drew a picture of a fairy (nvidia) and a green ogre (ati uses with some of its mag ads). they both have boxing gloves on, and the fairy is up against the ropes... not exactly the funniest, but its still an issue.

    Hey again.  I have been working on some characters to start drawing a MMORPG comic.  There are two main characters which are loosely based on me and my roommate.  Eric, me, is a FPS game fanatic that only plays games on computer or the XBox, and gets bored quickly with RPG games; he is also your classic stupid character.  Matt, my roommate, plays RPGs and is an Everquest fan, still plays super nintendo and dreamcast, and is your classic voice of reason.  A possible third character could be a fly, yes a fly.  About a week ago, someone forgot to shut the front door and a fly came in, and despite our best efforts to kill it, he lives on and has become a member of the family.  So I am thinking the fly could be your classic comic relief.  Other possible characters could be my roommates fiance and my new girlfriend, but not sure on that yet.

    I would like to keep the strip mostly about MMORPGs, and maybe every now and then venture out into things like the XBox, politics, and other random stuff.  I'll probably start off drawing one a week and if yall like them and give me inspiring ideas I will increase my output.  If it turns out to be crap, I will stop.

    So what do yall think?  Would anyone like to help me out?  If I draw a few and send them to you Admin, and they are good, could they get hosted on the site?

    Hey yall, I dont have a scanner and I won't have the funds to buy one for a couple weeks, so I am going to have to hold off on starting to draw a comic, but I will keep working on characters and ideas.  So until then if anyone has ideas, drop me a line.
