on another board i go to someone started a 5 min. comic strip thread. the idea was to make cheap comic strips that only take like 5 minutes or so to make. so i came up with this here. i'm posting it here cuz well, i'm proud of it and i'm just showing off [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/laugh.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":laugh:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"laugh.gif\" /]

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

man, you got a great idea here, Open Source Comics Strips!!!

make the strips public and people can add ideas until they get something really funny, and then you post the comics for the public to read. How cool would that be?

Scott Adams does something very similar with Dilbert... he asks his readers to send him stories of their experiences at work, and if he finds a good one, he makes a comic out of it.

well, as far as I know, he's been doing it all along, but I'm not sure. He SAYS that's what he does; what actually happens may very well be another thing.

His wife probably writes them now... or a bunch of people! Yeah!

(oh, wait... they already tried that with Shakespeare... dang.)
