Default Looking for volunteers

With the site once back from the ashes like the mighty phoenix, the archives are gone once more. Instead of doing the tedious thing that ends up getting in the way of other work and burning me out by uploading all the comics myself, I'm looking for some volunteers to help upload them.

Nami and Monocle have offered help, and I'm wondering if anyone else would be willing to help as well. There are almost 400 comics by now, and if I could get just a few more people to help, I don't see why we couldn't get the entire archive up this week.

I'm trying to get a lot done this week so I don't have much else to do next week except comics, and this would help a lot. Let me know if you're interested and available!

Guess I don't quite understand; do we have to already have the comics downloaded personally or what? If so then I wouldn't be of any help, but if you're providing us the comics to upload to the site, then yeah I'll totally help.

I have all the old comics and (most) of the old titles that go with them. I'd email people a file with a chunk of the comics with dates, a text file to accompany them, and instructions on how to upload them.

I can probably do a batch or two. I really don't have anything to do this week.

How much is a batch anyway? Also what's the situation with mouseover text? The ones you put up before the site borked again were pretty funny.

Batches will depend on how many people offer help, I guess. Maybe I'll send 30 or so to start off with just to see how that goes.

All the mouse over texts are gone and need to be rewritten, and I'll take care of that after all the comics are up to save time for everyone involved. The archives being up are more important, and while the alt texts are fun, they won't generate as many page views or get as many people reading if I manage to start advertising again next week.

I've always got a lot of free time, so I could upload a bunch whenever.

Awesome. I'll try to pester you two and two others tonight. Monocle will be asleep since he lives in the UK, which is fine. I'd like to ask him for as little as I can. Guy's done enough work as it is. D:

I know I just tweeted this but to be fair part of Florida is indeed CST. Also the same as my state!

IT'S LIKE WE'RE STATE TWINS. or something.

No no, I'm too socially awkward to go out and proposition a prostitute (propostitute?)

But in the land of webcomics, you can do anythiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing!
