So. 6 contributions, some made by pairs of people. I'd say, I like Taizu's one - had a sort of reality feel to it. I also like Teru's one - nice interaction between our mascots, plus it was nice to see the winning Server-kun again.
Obviously, the best one is by Ecstasy and me, made squarely at the last moment, and none of you have any chance to compare! Despair, you pitiful humans!
Now, 6 is less than I expected, actually, but better than could have been. Now, I am not an artist in any way, so I really have no idea how easy or hard it is to make a 4koma from a purely technical point of view, not counting the thinking-about-ideas period. But how I see it now - you can take DC's writing threads as an example of how to structure it. Now, writing threads have a lot of rules, a big theme discussion. You don't have to have that, you can follow the writing prompts like - simpler, no pressure on participants, easy theme.
What you want to decide is how often you want to have that - so it would not tire out regular participants, but was on often enough for newfags to join, cause I think some do want to join. Another thing is - I don't really visit our art threads, so I don't know if you did it, but maybe you can advertise this among our known artists. Pick up the participation. Don't be shy to ping people - if they wouldn't want to, the won't join, if they wouldn't have noticed the thread without that - you just got another 4koma.
Now, I don't like tumblr - I generally dislike the idea of it, plus I remember how Gar, at one point, tried to contain my CL News by moving us to tumblr, which obviously never worked our well in any way. However, in this case, until we have something downloadable, this can work alright. Pictures need some writing commentary, so I guess the blog of sorts is what we got to have here.
Oh, and a damn shame that this wasn't pinned back on stickies before the first batch. But oh well. Some people notice unstickied threads going up naturally more than they notice stickies )
