I will select somewhere between 10 and 20 beta testers. Selection will not be based on quality, popularity, or anything like that — I’m looking for a wide variety of people who will use the service in a wide variety of ways (and will therefore ensure that every little bit of the service gets tested). So, for example, if cartoonist X and cartoonist Y plan to use the service in exactly the same ways, only one of them will be selected — probably the first one to post.
Note that *only* people with adult or erotic webcomics will be accepted. That’s a reversal, eh?
Beta testers will get free accounts for life.
