I don't think our little DA announcement was any good!

Eldritch (September 29th, 2002, 11:16 pm)

I don't think we're getting noticed. Maybe not enough information, maybe because Jark didn't put it up on the main news(And they just put CRAP on those nowadays), but I don't think we're getting the attention we deserve.

That's too bad, i didn't even see any sort of announcement. But i guess that's cause you guys aren't part of the devart elite; i've noticed that about that place. Only those in the high ranks get any sort of attention. Perhaps you ought to step up a little more strongly.... don't know what that'd be like, you just need a lill more attention.

I know! Steal Jark's computer! That way we can use it as a hostage.*Yeah, like that'll work!*

I was thinking that myself.

I say we get the first issue /done/, and then try and get a news item on the front page, rather than the limited prose section news item.

Also, we ought to think about spamming ourselves on lots of other sites too (in a good way, obviously)...anybody know anywhere else that we can plug ourselves on?

hmm. We might try

I haven't been there in awhile, but I could probably post a thing in the forum. Don't know how much attention it would get, but hey.

how about...

Wanderer (October 1st, 2002, 6:41 pm) ? I see they give attention to a lot of stuff in their news section. Maybe you can even get a mentioning in one of their issues. It's a high traffic side, might give some exposiure.

I know of a few fora..

Hellkeepa (October 2nd, 2002, 5:02 pm)


I know of a few fora. Nothing that's geared towards authoring and such, but I don't think that'll stop people from being interested. ;-)

As soon as you get the first issue finished I'll start spamming my socks off, or at least so much it takes me close to bannage. :-D

Happy fraggin'!

All good

cruise (October 3rd, 2002, 11:36 am)

Definately a good few suggestions there. was one of my thoughts too...I've looked at a few of their issues and stuff, but never really explored the site fully. is probably a good is probably worth a shot too.

And yeah, personaly pimping on any websites or boards you think you can get away with is certainly appreciated :P

All good

I just now saw the article in the prose section. This is what bothers me about the tiers. People dont look there. Jark should have posted this on the mainpage. We got Contemplicity on the mainpage. There's no reason this shouldnt be also. Pisses me off. Anyway, this is a great site. I love the design, great writing. The layout of the submissions are wonderfully clear and elegant. Very nice work you guys have here. You need to tell inennui or faithwalker about you if they dont know so maybe they can get you the attention you deserve. Also, I dont know if you have already, but try posting the article in the writer's forum on DA.


All good

Eldritch (October 6th, 2002, 11:15 am)

Good idea :D


cruise (October 7th, 2002, 10:36 am)

I had the option of submitting the news to the front page...but I assumed that that was for "general interest" stuff...I figured anything important enough within the tiers would appear on the front page...

Was I right in assuming that?

So who's up for messaging inennui and faithwalker? :P

*looks around in mild panic*

Narainsbrain (October 7th, 2002, 11:58 am)

We posted at dA? Darn, how come I didn't know? What's going on?

Oh wait, I was offline for weeks, wasn't I. Yeah, that could be it. =)

Okay, I'm all for contacting those prose/poetry bigwigs of dA. But I'm not the one to do it, 'cause I'm leaving for a place with no 'net connectivity in a few days again... Yeah, I know, I just got back to TsfE... but I promise to start working on Mira again during that time.

One more thing, I think it's unlikely that a dA admin would move a tier-only post to the front page. I'd say when we get an issue out (heavens, we've been saying that for a long long time, haven't we? Aggh.), we post it on the front page and not take chances. =) Or talk to faithwalker or inennui first, and see what they suggest.

*looks around in mild panic*

utro (October 15th, 2002, 5:05 am)

Yeah, Narainsbrain is right. When you get your release out, you should highlight both the prose and main news sections. It should be posted that way. Hopefully. :)

cruise (October 24th, 2002, 5:52 pm)

Do I (since no one else volunteered again) still need to contact inennui or faithwalker, or is this covered by our being in the enxt issue of tweleve?

Okay, you want me to?

Narainsbrain (October 28th, 2002, 2:37 pm)

I'll contact one of them, if you want...


cruise (November 22nd, 2002, 7:54 pm)

If they've been noted already...oh well, we didn't know :P

You grab inennui, I guess, and I'll message faithwalker.

Any other new suggestion for pimping TSFE peoples?


Hellkeepa (November 27th, 2002, 8:23 am)


What about actually completing issue one, this year..? ;-

Happy fraggin'!

*feels terrible about being away*

Narainsbrain (December 5th, 2002, 5:01 am)

Um... so are we doing that, then? I mean, pimping dA admins?

As for completing the issue, you go on without me... Everyone else has their stuff ready, right? Seems like we're just about set to go.


cruise (December 7th, 2002, 12:16 pm)

We're going live on Monday.

Message inennui, and I'll do faithwalker. On Monday I'll do the news items for DA too.

:message sent:

Narainsbrain (December 9th, 2002, 5:01 am)

Well, for once I finished what I was supposed to do. =)

I didn't know what I was supposed to say, though, so I made up some crock: explained what the site was about, and invited him/her to check it out. I hope I did right.


Hellkeepa (December 11th, 2002, 12:37 pm)


Ah, finally. :-)

Better start pimping this then. ;-)

Happy fraggin'!

cruise (December 11th, 2002, 12:58 pm)

We have :D


Hellkeepa (December 13th, 2002, 6:50 pm)

Ah, yes, but..

Hellkeepa (December 13th, 2002, 6:50 pm)


I know you have, but I was talking about me. ;-

Happy fraggin'!


cruise (December 13th, 2002, 8:18 pm)

Right :P


Odoacer (December 27th, 2002, 2:49 am)

well i found out about this site from deviantart so that's one member you got from there.... dont remeber if it was from the main or one of the tiers though


Siedhr (January 9th, 2003, 12:01 pm)

well, definitely there should be a post in the forums. it has a much better chance of being seen there than in the news.

come to think of it, i don't really remember how i got here. it was way before the news. i think it was in gyroscope's sig or something like that.

Well, I've seen it!

mistseeker (August 4th, 2003, 6:26 pm)

I do not know about other Dartists, but I have found this site via the devart site! Cool site, too!

I will be visiting often, maybe submit some work of mine (as I translate it to english, since I am not a native english speaker, have the same problem in my account at deviantart).

Nice try, I think that you deserve more attention.

Keep on guyz!



cruise (August 5th, 2003, 9:45 am)

Yay, cool :P

Welcome aboard...the more, the merrier...
