Sign up and obtain awesome prizes!

November 11th, 2009 by

Like a hug from yours truly!  :D

Haha, we’ve been seeing an unusual amount of guests lately. Come on guys, sign up! We’d very much like to know what you think of this site, especially if it’s not very nice. Shadi’s been getting a tad cocky about his site design skillz since ECC got nominated for the SSAs, and we need a few people to come in and knock him down a peg or two.

If you happen to enjoy the comics, sign in and we can give you guys some exclusive looks at stuff in upcoming issues. Trust me when I say the current series are only going to get better. Aside from Staffers. Don’t make that your first ECC comic, I implore you. We do that one for practice more then anything.

See ya on the forums! Critique is welcomed.


Forum Update

November 9th, 2009 by

If you keep up with the main page, the forum’s had an update from Simple Machines Forum 1.0 to 2.0. I’m sure you’ll notice that the permalink and comment’s links at the bottom of the news box is broken, as well as the poll. Don’t worry, I’ll talk to Fluffy about it. Hopefully we can get this fixed soonish, but don’t worry guys, if you want to comment on the news updates, just head the for forums. M.E. Chronicles is updated in a child board of “ECC Updates & Announcements”.

Sonic Eggs Coloring Contest

November 8th, 2009 by

straight from the mouth of Shigs, just quoting him since he didn’t post on the front page

Snax learned the hard way that when I say I want it right now, I mean it! XD

However, this means that the comic is not 100% done..yet! That’s where you come in. In the¬†creative corner of our forums, we have a thread for a coloring contest. Winner gets his colors published into our Sonic Eggs archives and if it’s good enough, a position as a colorist here at Emerald Coast comics! (Note: It pays nothing.)

Entrys must be turned in by ooohh, (looks at calendar) Nov. 20. Voting will take place by our staff that weekend, and The winner will be announced Nov 23.

So join our forums, turn in your entry and have fun!

P.S. Please show the sun setting or it getting darker in the background as the next page takes place at night.

Here’s the strip..¬†http://emeraldcoastcomics.com/Sonic_Eggs/Page-20.eggs

Other good news, page 20 is ready for next week!


Sorry about the website issues

November 6th, 2009 by

Sorry about all the slowdown and random errors. The site has been going crazy recently with the increase of traffic, and I’m guessing the current server ECC is on is starting to choke up or something…

So yeah, sorry about all the problems! We are stuck under a contract at the moment and can’t really do much about it for at least another month.

Sorry for any inconvenience!


MEC has Just Been Pimped

November 5th, 2009 by

ust as the main page has an updated look, so does the mec portal. Does that mean we’re done? far from it. You see, I have the joy of going through the issues and redoing the theme for that too, not to mention weeding out a TON of old files. But regardless, it may not be that bad. Fluff’s set us up with a spiffy new way to upload pictures which require less ftp, which sounds like a godsend after so much coding. So yeah, bare with the old layout with the comics.

Aside from that, I’ve also made it so that you can follow MEC on RSS. And there’s a spiffy new poll just like on the main page¬†:D So yeah, it’s all awesome.¬†:)

Oh, and as for the comment box, well, seeing as I update this from a thread that’s hidden from none staff members, you can’t just comment yet, but don’t worry, this’ll be sorted out, probably some time tomorrow. Sorry for any waiting, but I’d rather not tamper with the forums yet. But don’t worry, it’ll all be good.¬†:)

Now, just because your lord and master built this page does not mean that the hand is entirely mine to kiss. Much of the code was written by shadi’s own hand, AND Nux was generous enough to provide me with something for the about page, though, knowing him, he’ll want to rewrite next time he see’s it. haha. So yeah, enjoy the new layout.

ECC Evolved!

November 4th, 2009 by

Yo guys. Jet here. If you haven’t noticed, we got a brand spanking new layout born from the minds of Shadiwulf and myself. Awesome right? Right. We have all kinda things like the box on the right hand side to take you to the latest issue of our comics. Also, we’ve moved the link to our comic portals to a drop down menu in our main navigation bar. Just hover over the word comic. Simple as that!

You can also log on, see who’s logged on, and vote on our poll! Speaking of polls, check out our new one. It’s for our layout. Vote on what you think¬†:)

Be sure to comment and follow us on twitter and RSS.

Plans for the Future

November 3rd, 2009 by

Yo. Been a long time since I had an update, but I’ve got a side project planned for MEC. Yes, a side project. Something that I will occasionally do with stories that I update one page a week. Something of a filler I guess you can say, but overall, I’m looking forward to it. But yeah, aside from that, I’ve got an update for issue 6. Behold the cover¬†:)

That’s it for now.¬†:D I’ll try to keep you updated in the future¬†>:D
