1. general questions about apathy unlimited

1.1 what's with the lowercase letters?

as all the cartoons had been lettered like that, i thought, 'meh', and did the rest of the site like it too. but is it art? is it good design? probably not, but then again, i don't really care. it saves me having to use up calories pressing the shift key.

1.2 why are the drawings so crappy?

hey, if you can do better, and have the patience and desire to do better, then go ahead, start your own site. in all seriousness, my usual style is considerably neater and less crude (though i'm no artist), but this style is quicker, suits the subject matter better, and i don't get pissed off with the limitations of my own drawing ability. i enjoy drawing like this- it's liberating...

1.3 why 'apathy unlimited'?

why not? the cartoon contains, but is not limited to, apathy. 'nuff said.

1.4 who draws the cartoon?

i do. usually, anyway.

1.5 what the fuck is 'meh'?

that's a good one. the best definition of 'meh' that i have found is this: the sound of a shrug. for more on meh, visit this link here. there's a large number of fantastic definitions to be found there.

1.6 what are the voting buttons at the bottom?

they're buttons. for voting. apathy unlimited is listed on several webcomics lists, and if you like the strip, please take a few moments to vote for me, on all of the sites if you can. this will usually bring up a confirmation message - to stop feelthy cheating bastards from rigging it.when i get a vote, my ranking goes up, the site is seen by more people, more votes, up it goes etc. at least that's the plan. not quite so easy in reality. vote every day if you like- it would certainly help me no end...

2. questions about email delivery

2.1 how do i sign up for email delivery?

at the bottom of the main page, there's a small box to put your email address in. do it, press the button and follow the instructions, it isn't difficult, i promise. just make sure you set the message delivery to 'individual emails', and that your own anti-spam filters (if you have any) don't delete the messages.

2.2 what are yahoo! groups?

yahoo! groups are a free service that allow people to various things, such as set up groups for common interests, or to send a regular newsletter or mailing to subscribers. in this case i'm using the list to distribute my cartoons.

2.3 will i get spammed?

certainly not by me, and i've never known yahoo! to do so. the list of members is viewable only by me and only i can post to the list. i will only ever use the list to send out the cartoons, or to give an update if something is going on with the cartoon.

2.4 when will it arrive?

that depends on several things. firstly, your geographical location. i'm on gmt, and post the messages on monday and friday, usually in the afternoon. if you're a lot of hours ahead, your email may arrive the day after- ie, friday's mail may arrive very early saturday morning. if you're a lot of hours behind, then there's always a possibility it might arrive the evening before, but this is less likely. posting times can vary as it's not an automated system and i do it all by hand (fnurk!).

3. miscellaneous questions

3.1 your cartoon offended me- who do i complain to?

whoever you like. your spouse, parents, brother, sister, workmates, boss, mp, senator, pet, church leader, doctor or anyone else you like. even me, if you really must, i'm very apathetic about complaints though, so i shouldn't bother. send me praise instead - it makes me happy. like beer.

3.2 can i reproduce your cartoon?

that depends. ask me. what do you want it for? if you just want to email the pictures to your mates, that's fine - it's a bit of free advertising for the site, and i draw them in the hope that they'll get seen. if you want to publish them, in print or on the web it's a different matter. if you're non-profit then ask nicely and it'll probably be a yes. if you're a commercial entity-type thingumajig (though i appreciate this is unlikely), then you'll have to give me money. i'm not here to help fill your pockets for free, you know. in all cases the images should be left intact and not altered in any way. i'll be particularly pissed off if someone else sticks their web address on them and uses them for their own gain. four words: your kneecaps. big hammer.

3.3 what's the difference between a duck?

one leg is exactly the same as the other.

3.4 can i draw a cartoon for the site?

yes you can. contributions are welcomed wholeheartedly go here to find out more.
