1.) I don't think so; due to the nature of manga, it should stay black and white (in my opinion, haha). It also makes the process faster, since coloring won't be needed.

2.) I'm up for characters. I'm not as experienced in other areas. XD But when you say lineartist, do you mean you want someone to pen-tool over the lines that have already been drawn? Because I can definitely contribute there...I'm also interested in character art, but something tells me that if lineart is what I think it is, it'll be less time-consuming, and I know I'm going to be pretty busy with school and what in the next several weeks.

3.) I would suggest that the settings be randomized or simple...something like that. XD

4.) I'm bad with scripting, so I'll leave that up to you guys. XD

5.) Profiles...Aren't the characters the main people in the bump thread? I guess we could do some sort of profiling thing, though, so people would get an idea of how to draw them and stuff.

6.) When I think of introducing the characters in this manga, I think Azumanga Daioh. Something similar to that, probably.

7.) I have no clue what kind of story arcs there would be, sooo...hah. XD

8.) Introducing the first story arc...hmm...well, I guess I'll wait for some other people to post their ideas first, and then we can kind of build off of each other's ideas. XD

1.) Is coloring really needed?
Nah... black and white would suit it nicely.

2.) Who would like to do what job?
I'll do backgrounds. Just need to know what is expected.

3.) Setting for the comic
I'm a tad curious on that one, as well. RD has a good theory.

4.) Scripts for the first few One Shot comics (In order to keep production moving)
*So totally leaving that to the writers*

5.) Character profiles/descriptions
Well... who is going to be in it? I'll work on some profile-type things, for what help they may offer.

6.) How to introduce characters?
Maybe something involving the process of logging on, or a brief flashback.

7.) Outline/synopsis and order of story arcs.
Chronological?

8.) How to introduce first story arc
Someone popping up hugging a Darth Vader cut out? Something happening naturally randomly.

1.) Is coloring really needed?
No, definitely not. It wouldn't really add anything to the comic, other than just having it take longer to finish. (Though a "special edition" coloured comic once in a while could work out nicely.)

2.) Who would like to do what job?
I'm up for anything that needs to be done writing-wise. I can also handle basic Photoshopping that we might need, like lettering, or whatever.

3.) Setting for the comic
The Bump Thread. XD;; Seriously, just make it vague. Just about any comic we'd do would involve a few characters in a random, unimportant room.

4.) Scripts for the first few One Shot comics (In order to keep production moving)
Uh... working on it. XD;;

5.) Character profiles/descriptions
Uh... I'll start working on it. XD;;

6.) How to introduce characters?
I don't think it's too important how we introduce everyone in a comedy manga like this. Just as long as we establish their individual quirks early on. (I.E. most of the first "running gag" comics would come early on)

7.) Outline/synopsis and order of story arcs.
Again, structure shouldn't be too big of an issue on a comedy series. The only thing we'd have to plan out would be the individual comics within the story arcs.

8.) How to introduce first story arc
Just kind of... start it. Like a regular one-shot but with a "to-be-continued" down in the last panel.
Don't defrost the alligator.

1.) Is coloring really needed?
*whimpers* Nobody but me seems to want it...so...no...

2.) Who would like to do what job?
I WANTED to be the color artist...but I can do formatting...maybe...perhaps...if people could find me some tutorials...same with shading...

3.) Setting for the comic
*agrees with Rex...but has strange ideas about the places for a few of the storylines...*

4.) Scripts for the first few One Shot comics (In order to keep production moving)

Leave it to Rex...

5.) Character profiles/descriptions
*lets Rex deal with it*

6.) How to introduce characters?
*agrees with Rex*

7.) Outline/synopsis and order of story arcs.
*agrees with Rex*

8.) How to introduce first story arc

1.) Is coloring really needed?
I think it would be cool, and Q wants to, if she is coloring no one else will have to worry about it. I believe it would be cool! I dislike Black/white format myself. XP

2.) Who would like to do what job?
Um... I could arrange the script and keep it together and send it to the person who needs it? I guess ^^;;

3.) Setting for the comic
This is the bump thread we are talking about, it can be totally random. I think it would be funny to have it set up in a random room with chairs and such. And sometimes outside depending on whats going on in the comic. I was thinking, at one point we could have it kinda like Ouran Highschool host clubs XD But thats just a thought

4.) Scripts for the first few One Shot comics (In order to keep production moving)
Yeah.. Um, if I am the script person.. I guess we could trade around whoever.. w/e..I am not making sense sorry..

5.) Character profiles/descriptions
Hmm, that would be good, that way it gives the Artist something to go off.. (I just hope I get to look Skinny! *grins*)

6.) How to introduce characters?
I believe since it's the bump thread, there should just be random people around. And yeah.. I don't know.. I agree with Rex though, very good idea

7.) Outline/synopsis and order of story arcs.
I also agree with Rex on this one XD

8.) How to introduce first story arc[/align]
Like Rex said, it's a comedy, we don't need to worry to much, but we should at least have something to back us up XD

1.) Is coloring really needed?
Valkaiser loves color :brow: But Valkaiser is also a lazy bum, so if someone who is motivated enough can color it within a reasonable time frame then great; otherwise, I guess not....

2.) Who would like to do what job?
Valkaiser could probably do formatting without too much trouble :eh:
Other artsy things could be attempted if needed...

3.) Setting for the comic
Errr..... The bump thread?

4.) Scripts for the first few One Shot comics (In order to keep production moving)

Leave it to the writers...

5.) Character profiles/descriptions
Is there input needed from the portrayed?

6.) How to introduce characters?
Leave it to the writers...

7.) Outline/synopsis and order of story arcs.
Leave it to the writers...

8.) How to introduce first story arc
Leave it to the writers...

Leave it to the writers? Valkaiser's brain hurts.... :eh:

Ok... So our solutions to are current problems are as follows:

1.) Color is not needed, BUT every set number of comics, we should have one color comic because there are a couple of us that do seem to want to do a color version (my self included would like that). So every once in a while a special edition comic will be colored by Q. Agreed? Yes/no?

2.) I'll edit the first post to relfect what kinds of jobs you seemed to want. XD If I get anything wrong, PM me and I'll change it.

3.) The setting for the comic will be random and yet simple. What ever is needed at the time I suppose?

4 - 8.) Is left to the writers (*COUGHREXCOUGH* XD). Seriously though, I do think that PMing the most influential bumpers and asking them if they have a preference as to their appearance is a good idea. Agreed? Yes/no? If you think so, then I'll get on that and PM the top 13 or so bumpers or at least the ones that I've noticed that are active.

3) Yes

4) Agreed...

1-4, 6-8) Yes.

5) Perhaps an 'artists impression' of each character, then that is sent to the respective bumper, who yays or nays it?

Erm... I personally think that making an artist's impression that is then sent to a member for aproval would probably take up a bit of extra time. That is what you mean right? o.o

XD A chat manga would have to be completely different though, it would require a whole other cast of characters. And thats just a bit too much at the moment. I think for right now, unless I get a whole slew of artists and writers, we're only going to be doing a bumpthread manga for now.
