Title: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Wraa on May 11, 2013, 12:13:36 PM
Hey all, in an effort to kick up the readership level a notch or two, I wanted to offer a challenge: I'd like to see if we can get Altermeta back in the top 100 at the very least.

If you are willing to help try to reach that goal, please, click here to vote: http://topwebcomics.com/vote/6171/default.aspx

The higher the score, the more we will be seen. Just remember, you can vote once (from a single location) every 24 hours or so. If you visit via a cell phone, or while on someone else's network, you can vote from there as well.

Also, if you have been lurking around the forums without creating login, maybe sign up and join in the fun.

It is quick and easy, and there is everything from day to day discussions, to artwork, to stories, and even games! Of course, there is talk about the comic, and all things related to it!

We hope to see you soon!

Will do
I guess that's the equivalent to carving 'ALTERMETA.NET' everywhere... and a lot more legal...
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Wraa on May 11, 2013, 02:23:57 PM
That is the hope. I believe that if we can get everyone (or nearly everyone) in on it, we can really boost the traffic and the site's score. I would even be willing to bet it might just inspire some art from Noben (though I can't say that for sure).

I'm already seeing an increase in the vote stats! Let's keep it rolling!

I am certain if we all pull together, it can happen!

Post by: Liram on May 13, 2013, 04:41:57 AM
We should set timers on our phones so we can be sure to vote as often as possible. I'm always willing to take a break from the mundane work I love so much to help Altermeta
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Wraa on May 13, 2013, 01:47:07 PM
It could certainly be a consideration so long as people wouldn't find it distracting. I'll leave that up to people if they want to take it to that level. Still, the more ideas the better!

Yep. I want to avoid linking to the pic, so people will need to go on over and vote to see the image.

Neat. Looks like that character is messing with things we have not seen messed with just yet. I am curious what Noben has to say is going on there.

Suddenly I have many questions and a vested interest in seeing the comic progress to whatever point that is in the storyline
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Wraa on May 14, 2013, 08:30:09 PM
Well, head on over to the AlterMeta Talk section, and start asking. Can't say you'll get answers, but you might end up with more questions that will just leave you ready for more! Vested interest? Stick around! (I'd hazard a guess that the more votes we can come up with, the more inspired Noben might become.......)

Well, thus far, we seem to have gained a few new members here on the forums (And Welcome to all of you who have recently joined!), a couple people have popped over to the Facebook page and gave us a 'Like'.

We are still trying to push the TopWeb Comic votes:
http://topwebcomics.com/vote/6171/default.aspx (http://topwebcomics.com/vote/6171/default.aspx)
Which this morning, seems to be jumping around quite a bit. Our goal is at the very least, to hit the top 100, if not better!

And thank you all for everything!

I don't know about everyone else (I hate to jump to conclusions) but upcoming things look very exciting indeed. Also I notice we're slowly (and by we I mean Altermeta) creeping up the top 100 again. I feel like there's some kind of ridiculous tug of war going on behind the scenes
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Wraa on July 15, 2013, 01:45:32 PM
I wonder about that too. More so when I see the score moving up and then for whatever reason, bam! It's back to the 200 score again.
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Balding on July 15, 2013, 08:17:14 PM
It is a tug of war.  We're here voting for Altermeta and there are peoe out there voting for other comics.  We can fight to get somewhere, but we have to fight just as hard to stay there.

Once per day per device.  If it says two hours for you then you're voting two hours before their midnight.

Use a computer at school if the site isn't blocked.  In fact use all the computers at school, then the library, maybe hit up a couple of business offices.  I wonder if twc will notice if you use the same device from a different location.  vote from the house and vote again from McD's.  The IP would be different... Ah ha, it will work.  Just tried it with my phone on 3g.  There you go, get a soda at a fast food place with wifi so you can vote more.

I remember when AM hit the #1 spot and held some good ground at the #5 to 10 spots for months at a time.  I don't hold the comics worth with this, but it is like a lil' badge you know? ^_^
Just have to update more..
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Jay Chan on July 30, 2013, 07:10:09 PM
Friends? I have friends? <.=.<

Vites do seem to spike whenever there's an update, and we have been slowly climbing up from the usual 150-ish spot. I think we're sitting around 136 right now. On our way to the front page!

TWC uses IP addresses to see where you're voting from, so multiple computers on the same wi-fi network can't cast more votes. However, one computer can cast multiple votes if you take it with you to work or school.

I had no idea Altermeta had reached the top ten in the past, let alone #1!. We should make this happen again!

Is not true.  I vote from a laptop, tablet, Iphone and PS Vita all on the same wifi network.  I also have a Linux desktop and a Windows desktop on hard wire.  If I try to use the the device on the same network it will not let me vote again.

88th doesn't sound so hot except when you consider how many comics there actually are. We're gonna ride this gravy train all the way to the top ten though so it's of little consequence

There is not enough money in the world to make me think that is a good idea, not if you are basing it around webcomics.

Maybe something akin to the game Chez Geek or such.

I think a portion of it is updates. Even a sub-par comic, and no, I'm not naming names, that updates regularly, will pull in votes as people are stopping by on a regular basis to read.
If you look at many of the top comics, they are held by comics that update either every day, or run on a M/W/F schedule, or something like that.

Nor is this a complaint towards Noben, so please don't think it is. It just seems to be one of the major factors.

TWC - The Weather Channel  :lol:
 That's what it stands for on my phone. Anyway I kind of appreciate the time in between Altermeta updates, I mean don't get me wrong I'd totally read it if it updated every two hours, but you certainly get to savor the page. Every time I go to vote for Altermeta (every day at midnight) I read the page again and sometimes gloss over the recent previous ones. It's like a ritual. I dunno I guess I'm just saying that it's always worth waiting for.

Same here. Hey I was wondering what prompted each of you to finally join the forums, how can we entice some folks. For me I was reading on the forums one day and I saw someone had said something really dumb and I was like "if someone can say things that dumb in Noben's presence and not be strapped to  a cannon then surely I can be allowed to say things that aren't that dumb on the forums."
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!

I joined the forum because I liked the comic, and didn't really want to be a lurker. More activity on the IRC channel might be fun, as live chat is always nice. We could start a "Welcome to the Forum" thread, with instructions/tutorials on signing up, posting, IRC setup etc. I'd be willing to make tutorial vids. :)

There is nothing wrong with being a lurker Dreaker

Remember that there is a sport class license and craft. Join a club and combine money. Think about kitbuilts. Also hang around small airports and you can pick up lessons pretty easy. Swap for help with the kitbuilders assembling their planes. Try and swap in the class you want to fly- want to go up in warbirds or classics? Join their restoration clubs, you will keep something alive that will otherwise go in a museum or sit on a pole outside a VFW hall. Experimentals? join EAA and your local clubs.

  Besides air time, you get a mechanics knowledge and lessons from people who know that class of machine inside and out.

I've been strongly considering trying to do that very thing down at my local small airport, Junction City Ky. I'm just not sure there's anybody there at all anymore. I actually wanted to become a pilot at one point. I suppose I still do, but when you find out how crowded it is out there your parents talk you into looking elsewhere.

Would be fun to be a freelance cargo pilot.  I want to get a DC-3 and just fly around hauling stuff.  Course my favorite show as a kid was Talespin so that might have something to do with that.
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Russ on November 01, 2013, 02:08:53 AM
With a DC3, not much speed but great economy, with ability to get into small airports that bigger haulers cannot. Some really good money is there at construction, mining and pipeline sites. Equipment breakdowns while waiting for parts is in the millions per hour. Bush-pilots in small cargo craft like Turbo porters bring the needed parts into the job site, landing on cleared roadways. Good way to pick up a cool 10K$ on a sunny afternoon, maybe more.

The plane type I was looking at is an OV-10 Bronco. Tandem seats and room for six or cargo in the back. Not as good for a full time hauling outfit, but it makes one of the best bush delivery platforms. Another thing; the view from the cockpit is gorgeous. The wide bubble canopy and spacious forward placed tandem cockpit give a near 360 degree view. Combine that with a comfortable ejector seat and great handling, what more could one want? =)
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Balding on November 01, 2013, 03:24:41 AM
I like the DC3 because as a WW2 plane it was built to be beaten up.  Not as solid as the B-19 but not all planes can have their tail blown off and still fly.

That OV-10 is a neat plane.  I'm surprise I have taken note of it before.  Yellow on top red on the bottom and you could nearly change your name to Balloo.  :D

   Did you know that the Gooney Bird' was one of the few planes that was designed to break down into cubic portions? The wing spars were sectional - so the wing outer panels right where you see the camber change near the engines could simply unbolt and new ones brought in. Same for the forward fuselage, nose tip to the cargo box, then from the side doors to tail. Came in 5 big exchangeable pieces. Try doing that with a C5A.

Yeah, that's just a little "and more" part of it. The main show is the main show, Altermeta the webcomic by Noben. That's about voting, site visits, ad revenues/funding

For me, I want to thank everyone who hangs in there and stays with the site. 1000 posts is significant and attainable.

Besides these big dragons, I do want to draw some kuvvies again soon.

It's been evolving since the first ever AM pages now sitting in the archive. =) Unless you're talking about this chapter, I can't wait either! :D

I wonder how the rum wenches enter the scene in page 168... I wonder if it will be anything like the 'hot chocolate' scene fron the polar express?  ;) But I have haunch that they Will burst out or just walk out with the good stuff...


Another thing, the ad prices went back to 3¢, down from 4¢. :|

Oh and new vote image up.

I stayed up late tonight, and it was worth it! Hooray for the WIP. Ad prices are back up to 4¢, and my suspicions about 168 were confirmed! Yay.

I like how Sasha is less enthusiastic than everyone else.

And I think ads on FA and such would be a good idea.

Some of the money made with ads here could finance AM ads on other sites, hence free ads and increased traffic. Win-win. Just an idea.

I don't know if anyone else has discovered this....

The ethics of it are, perhaps questionable in the fairness standpoint, but when I visited the Sprint store last night I noticed that all they display phones had their own phone connection, not to the local WiFi, but actual 3/4g connections.

Each one had a different IP address....

I won't say I did so on every phone.... After all, they still had a slim selection of flip/non smart phones there.

Yes I was fully aware that you don't set prices, and the prestated post was merely an idle muse for fun. ;)

So then, I could technically vote every time I had to connect to a different network on campus but only with either my phone or my laptop not both? I would refrain from doing such a thing since Calt has made the request, but it's interesting to know.
On campuses with extended wifi(same building or building cluster), a wifi device is given a single IP address and can wanted around the little network of extenders or nodes, depending on the setup. Which means one vote per how-ever-often. On larger campuses, different buildings or building clusters will each have their own wifi point so you cloud theoretically roam around tapping out votes. Another way to get votes is to disconnect then reconnect a bunch of times. That method has mixed results as does the roaming among hotspots, depending on the variables.

As far as voting goes, I'm fine with one vote a day. (That's what I've been doing anyway...) :P
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Balding on November 20, 2013, 02:59:12 PM
And it depends if the school has more than one global ip.  If thy only have one then twc registers the vote from that ip and all others are blocked.  They say "once per machine" but if that were true then I could vote at least five times per day just from my house.  As it is I usually vote once from 3G once from home and how ever many wifi hotspots I get access during the day.

For a "bad artist" you have amassed a wide popularity for your works!

I get dinged a lot on consistency, but I have a different take on it behind the scenes. Here I am sitting at a table looking at a screen and using a stylus capture device. For the umpteenth time drawing a dragon caricature of one kind or another, but this one is the latest. Why not try making the character a slightly deeper shade of one or two colors? or round the legs and hips a bit more, or a bit different eye style, expression variation, clothing type, or tail width/ length. Without these, the one original draw of CC or Sasha was the only one worth drawing, the rest are nothing.

  That's why over on Deviant, when I see "bases" in use or these Flash programming "generators" I get a little (!@#$%&*

   This is art of drawing and that involves flexibility. OTOH, if doing animation... consistency is the thing. But for cartoon drawing, it may be that Sasha drawing number 205 is going to be spectacular, much more so that the rest. If we template Sasha, we never see 205....

  Would you say I was overstating the case for variation?

I'm a bad artist and can't draw consistently, thats why she doesn't look right.
You know that's not true.
First off, nobody's perfect. period. Even the most consistent artists I find, end up drawing the same character shapes in the same poses over and over and it gets boring. It works for a lot of simplified comic styles, but Altermeta is not that kind of webcomic - nor is it the kind that should be. Russ is right, the little variations between each iteration of a character make them more unique, and give each page or piece of art its own identity. I've noticed, watching you work, that you approach each piece individually. Even when the dialogue and continuity link up to pages before and after, each page of the comic is its own piece of art, made with varying techniques depending on what works best for each particular scene/character/color palette/time of day. I like that kind of progression in both the comic and in your art style, and I hope you never stop making art like you do.

There's a rather large difference between "bad" and simply adding helf a cup size to a character's already ample bosom.  Besides I have yet to hear anyone complain.  ;)  Even comics like "Sabrina" and "Freefall" never get everything perfect.

Thanks..  thing is, I've always wanted to draw with a look that's consistent, but I don't think I ever can.  It's sensitive, I need to get over it.   Just that lines are thin here, thicker there, shading is better here, worse there.  I dunno. Just another day feeling down on myself.  I'm sorry.  Lately I've been sleeping more, but waking up in a fairly low mood.  Not angry or snappy, I actually -am- a morning person.  My mood just drops. That's the only way I can put it.  So I'll make it a point to keep it in check and avoid responding to things til I've woke up fully and not feeling mopey or overly sensitive to stuff.



On a random note:   So Lyfi came to visit last weekend, and we hung out nearly all night, played some board games, drew a little and talked and it was very fun and inspiring.  Thank you Lyfi, it was great getting to meet you! ^_^

We need to retrieve it! We need two stargates, and I have one. We'll position them facing eachother just out of reach of eachother's unstable vortices. Then we'll bypass the safety protocols and dial one from the other, targeting the wormhole through a solar flare. When I come out the other side, I will have gone back in time, and I can stop Dreaker from killing Liram.

No paradox. When I travelled back in time and disrupted the crucial moment, the entire spacetime continuum shifted. Your residual awareness of the original continuum is due to the dimentional overlap effect common to two-way wormhole time travel, causality loops, and similar phenomena.

It was actually pretty simple. We made a time machine out of an old VW van.
The only way to use it though, was to drive into the past and literally just... jump out
Except when everyone else got out and I tried to follow them out, except my seatbelt wouldn't unbuckle
Oh was THAT all?
So I was hanging out of the door for a while when suddenly Rich shows up outta nowhere, cuts the seatbelt, and gives me a lift back to now.
But wait, what happened to the time van then? Did it just keep floating out in spacetime forever? Did it crash somewhere? Did electromagnetic spacetime phenomina turn it into a twisted pile of steel and shag carpeting??
Actually when I got out it started veering further East and back in time. I think it would've hit around 20 years ago? Probably just looked like a regular crash, but with a brightly colored hunk of post-war counterculture appearing outta nowhere. It'll fit right in.

You're making perfect sense. What we're going to need is a crossbow, an hourglass, and three goats.

Please.
*softly pushes away Wraa* Let me handle this.

Guys. I really don't care if you mess up a topic unused like Central Csyelus Institute of Applied Treknology. But right now you stomped on a topic which currently had an important question as its last post. So please move your banter elsewhere.

Or you know what how about to use this new off topic topic I just made? And how about a don't care what you think and just throw all of you there?
*don't cares what theyy think about it and throws them into The Rubber Room (http://forum.altermeta.net/index.php/topic,2534.0.html)

Well, I don't really have much of a presence on Twitter, no presence at all on Pintrest or Instagram, and I have yet to find a way to create a page on Google+.
Those are good suggestions!

I currently manage the FB page. Does anyone have any interest in working the angles on one of those?
I never used any of them. Even my FB page is deserted showing up once a day to see if some pal's want something from me.

   She is very shapely and I would have liked a tail there, but each picture is its own.

   I would call the expression mildly/pleasantly startled with the view she is currently seeing (me of course!).

Sweet merciful crap, she's hot!

Dayum! She just got epic!
And the swirling sand/purple energy effect just looks gorgeous!

I'm loving that pic! 

Though with that staff, I'd be afraid to swing it around lest one of those glass end's break causing a schism in the space/time continuum.   
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Dreaker on March 03, 2014, 02:32:25 PM
Yeah.. Because the staff that is probably the manifestation of the time line is so fragile.

Also we falling back! Vote as if you got pay for it!

I feel like she deserves my respect, but I also really feel like she's hot so... both?

Aside from the obvious reasons, the picture is pretty amazing.  Dunno why but the shadows on her face really catch my eye.  And to be able to get that kind of detail at such a (relatively) low resolution.

Anyone care to speculate on how the time staff works? I mean obviously the actual mechanics remain a mystery, but is it the kind of staff you whirl? Perhaps you simply turn it over. I hope it's one that you get to stamp on the ground and then like maybe purple light shoots out of it or something.

I bet its like an Ori staff.

"Hallowed are the Ori."   couldn't resist

You might just wave it around and mess with all the wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff.  When you've got the time staff seems like you can do just about whatever you want.

At least you've got plenty of time to figure it out.

When Noben finally drops Quandice into the comic, she needs to have a blue booth or large box in the scene. :)

But what if she isn't a Kuvrahk at all? The boobs.. erm booty.. I mean booby... *takes a cold shower* the body we see is just an avatar? A manifestation of a higher power that she cold change if she see it fit.

I dunno, I suspect her Chameleon Circuit to be in perfect working order
She not just travel time. She bends it to her will.

Sorry.. I have to go off topic here.. Am I the only one who reminded to the "I have no idea what I'm doing" meme dog by Spotweld avatar??

I have voted twice today, so far. How about the rest of you!

A whip is considered light bondage?
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Risha Kalsyhan on April 03, 2014, 12:32:44 AM
Once.

No, a whip is heavy bondage. I can do light, but I'm not masochistic or sadistic enough for heavy.

To be honest, I'm growing tired of the current incentive pic. It's just the same boobs, hips, and timestaff over and over again.

I'm not voting for a picture. I do it for the comic and Caz.

It's not hard to get at least one vote in per day.  I made a bookmark of it in chrome, nice thing is I can sync it across all my devices so if I find a wifi network I just pop it open and click it.  As long as you use the internet at least once per day just stick it in the folder that you use the most.
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Liram on April 04, 2014, 06:26:20 AM
Chrome has become so accustomed to altermeta visits that when I type "a" it just fills in the rest. It's like winding my watch, it's an automatic part of the day.

I think it's safe to say that traffic will pick back up when the comic resumes. :)

Busy day. Lets see what they are up to..
Some registers.. One logs in.. One is activating account.. Two "Reporting a topic to a moderator."??
"Nothing, or nothing you can see..." Now I am curious.
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Jay Chan on June 22, 2014, 08:29:51 PM
Reporting topics to moderators usually means bots, and so does registering accounts.
That last one is a secret, shhhh...

Votes: no idea.
Posts: me with spare time :3

Hmm, I wonder if using AM forum signature banners on other forums would increase traffic my much. I know that's how some peeps find their way here, just wondering if it'll be a meaningful or sagnifigant amount. Then again, there's probably going to be that person who says every vote and visitor counts... :)

Post by: Wraa on July 09, 2014, 05:02:01 AM
We are looking good. If we can push it a bit more, we can keep it in the top 100!

Plus, per Noben, comics are due to start happening once she is done with a little disconnect break.
So stay tuned folks! Let's ramp it up as best as we can and give Noben a nice welcome for when she comes back!
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!

Down at 150s today. Oh well. (I voted!)
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Wraa on August 02, 2014, 02:02:53 PM
So long as we keep at it, (voting that is!) we should be able to raise back up in the ranks after the monthly reset.
Title: Re: Increasing site traffic and more!
Post by: Balding on August 02, 2014, 05:27:08 PM
Don't get too discouraged if we fall behind at the beginning of the month.   I just voted from my tablet and my phone and we jumped 11 places.

Hello all!

With Noben ramping up the Ruler of the World (part 2), I figure now as good a time as any to remind people to vote, and if they happen to know anyone who might be interested in the comic to stop on by, take a look, and join the family!

I'm guessing that the site that hosts the comic voting was down when that happened. Unfortunately nothing I can do about it.

I have a little announcement. I don't want to create a whole new topic for it, but there really isn't an existing topic where it would fit, and this kind of stuff mostly ends up here, so here goes. I'm going to be changing my email address soon, and I know there's at least a few people here who have been in touch with me via E-mail. If that's you, PM me, and I'll give you my new E-mail as soon as practicable.

One reason that we haven't been as active with our posts here might be that the email notification system is still broken. (At the very least, for me.) I do check this forum once a day...

It will be worth it.

Maybe check out the Altermeta FB page or Noben's pages for updates.
