I hadn't messed with Project Wonderful settings on my websites in awhile so some recent updates there were news to me. Anyone else run into these lately? Thoughts and anecdotes to share?
1. Tougher Restrictions to Get In: Now even with a user account at PW you still have to submit additional websites for review before you can create an ad box for them.

The webcomic Curvy does in fact live up to its own tagline: A sexy sci-fi adventure comic for adults. I stumbled onto this from it's ad on another comic's site -- the art is kind of loopy and has nice use of contrasting black and white -- it's a very stylized approach to the visuals. (it reminded me a touch of Tracy White's TRACED). Definitely NSFW even with the somewhat cartoony artwork.
