Ahh, ok, thanks, WiE. Yeah... it would be hypocritical of me in one sense to say 'no, please don't steal the copyright we swiped,' especially considering that Ten Doctors is the one strip of Rich's that we can't exactly *sell*. But while exposure is always good, we get ad revenue that lets us pay for our webspace and other expenses, and that revenue is partially based on the hit counts on our websites.
Basically, if people read the comic offline, then they have no incentive to come to the site, the community loses out on their comments and contributions, and we lose potential revenue that's earmarked for things like saving up for a private server so that we don't get 500 errors anymore.
The other issue I have, and it's a much less mercenary one, is that I really don't like the idea of an unfinished Ten Doctors floating around as a document. It doesn't give the full impression of Rich's work, and could turn off more readers than it catches. I know I'll have no control over what happens when we finally do release the whole thing (pdf's looking most likely right now), but at least, once the comic's DONE, it'll be an entire unit circulating. Does that make any sense to anyone but me?
So, yeah! The major ways you can support the site are by providing content here in the forums - I loves me some chatterboxes, especially the ones with interesting observations! - reading the comic through the website so that our ad banners see your hit count, and purchasing your media and toys through amazon affiliate links.
By the way, whoever bought the Kindle through our link, I LOVE YOU. I had no idea we got 10% on that little sucker.
