A.) Explantion of Account types:
1.) Common Hosting:
With this account type...you send us the
issues / pages as you complete them and we upload them for you to a page,
Like "Sonic Adventure - Return to the Ark". This is for people that do not
know HTML, how to make a Webpage or FTP.... or just can't be bothered to
maintain a website.
Hosting: With this Account
type...you'll be given a FTP Account, and upload your own website to SVT Via
the account. You'll be responsible for keeping your comic up to date. "SatAM:DX"
and "Wave's Adventure" have this kind of hosting. Good for people with
Webpage / HTML Design Skills and FTP Knowledge. DO NOT SIGN

B.) The Terms of Service
#1.) It NEEDS to be a Sonic Comic or
Sonic Related Comic or a Sonic based comic. A Comic about
people off to save the world of Magazz with swords and knives
and shields is not Sonic based. A Comic about 10,000 years
into the future of Mobius that does'nt directly include Sonic
or any of the other characters, but losely definded as
"Sonic based" *IS* acceptable. Also a sonic based
comic using entirly fan characters is also acceptable.
#2.) it needs to show SOME effort. Drawing
some stick figures and scribbling text balloons and a plot that goes "OMG
LETS KILL ROBOTINK! ROBOTINK DEAD! HAPPPPY! =D " in 2 pages will NOT BE
accepted. You don't need to be Leonardo Da' Vinci or Ernest Hemingway
but don't show the talent of a 2 year old with a crayon either.
#3.) Alright. I'll be quite blunt. Besides
showing effort..it needs to be GOOD overall. You can be the
most BEST artist ever...but if your writing isn't too good..
the comic may not be accepted HOWEVER, in such the case that
Writing is good but the art needs work or vise versa...we
might actually attempt to help you in this case so we can
host your comic. Though a very rare occasion.
#4.) Before I get complaints: We are
Primarily NOT A SPRITE COMIC SITE. No! Sure. We host SOME Sprite comics,
if they are good enough, but the Majority of comics we receive are usually
not up to standards of a drawn Comic like what SVT normally hosts.. HOWEVER,
we have made an Argeement with
When you pick Sprite Comic as a type, it'll automatically be
sent to the lovely people at Nz17, and they'll try to take care of
you... but SVT does not host sprite comics, so be sure to pick the right
#5.) Comic must be within a PG-13 rating.
Under special circumstances, a more harsher rating might be
allowed if it's controlled and not overdone and contains
proper warnings..like Return to the Ark.
#6.) You agree that these may change at
any time...and if they are..it is your duty to obey new
guidelines.Check this Form Often for guideline Ruling changes if at all
#7.) Your Comic remains YOUR WORK and
Property, SVT will *NEVER* Take credit for a comic that you
#8.) BE SURE TO PICK THE PROPER HOSTING TYPE SUITED TO YOUR NEEDS.
