I've been a member for some time, but I've only just begun assisting Ed Kline on Nightshade the Merry Widow. I'd like this to appear on my Profile where it says Comics Assisted By Lee M, but I can't find any way to edit that part. On the Help pages it says "You'll see an “edit” link for these", but I can't for the life of me see where.

i was wondering how to edit the name of my comic - I just discovered that there is a comic ( an old dead one from 2011 with only a few pages ) that has the name Star Knights - since my comic is kinda drawing some viewers here and where I mirror it I want to be able to be listed so I was going to change it to Z74's Star Knights but I don't see how to do that , any help greatly appreciated .

I'm working on a background for a comic. Since all monitors are different, I was wonder what appropriate dimensions would be for the image. I'm mostly looking into what would make a good width.

Hi there, I'm new here on The Duck, and I really want to make a comic, so what I want to know is, are fanmade adaptation comics allowed? (EG: If I made a comic version of Lord of the Rings) My apologies also, if this is stated somewhere on the site. I couldnt find it anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've never seen any disclaimer like that, and I've seen lots of comics set in established universes here (Star Wars, Star Trek, Skyrim…) - some are parody, some not… Curious as to what Universe you're thinking of (Lord of the Rings ?)

Lord of the rings or other fun things are fine. We just can't feature them.

I've noticed that my comic, Darklings, doesn't have any of the milestone tropies, even though we've been posting for over 4 years.

Fairly sure trophies haven't worked in a loooong time! No-one has them anymore as far as I know, even the ones people already had are gone. I'd assume it's basically just not part of the system anymore.

Yes, trophies aren't given automatically anymore. I can put them on a person's profile manually due to requests though.

Im thinking of getting a drawing monitor for my laptop. Only problem is my software is photoshop 7.0. Would any drawing monitors work with it? Or do i need to look into new software as well?

You mean like a Cintiq type deal?
Photoshop 7 will work with it. If you can enable pressure sensitivity with any other tablet it should work.

But there are LOTS of programs you can use if you have trouble with PS7. Manga Studio is one of the most popular.

To anyone who can assist:
Any way that I'm able to change my username here? I just recently got a name change for my website and I'd really like the other places I haunt to match the new name.
I guess I could start a new profile, but that's 600+ pages to repost.
Any solutions?

So I am curious as to how most comics gain traction on this site? How do people find them? Do I need to promote it in a forum? Or can I leave it be and people will eventually stumble upon like when searching for webcomics and such?
