Rio, the founder of Manga Tutorials, handles the tutorials, articles, and general maintenance of the site. The rest; forum, oekaki, and groupboard; is handled by a group of fantastic volunteers acting as moderators. For more info about everyone, check out the About Us page.
A majority of the tutorials has been done by Rio with remaining tutorials and articles submitted by guest authors. Check the credits under the title of the tutorial to find out who exactly made what tutorial. If you have questions about a particular tutorial, please check who made it first and direct your question to that individual. If you ask Rio about it and she didn’t make it, you’ll receive a reply pointing you to the right author.
There’s no specific time table. The best way to keep up is to sign up to our RSS Feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/mangatutorials/ROHf). This way, you get the latest news from Manga Tutorials without having to check back constantly. Don’t know what an RSS Feed is? Check out this neat video! It’s how I learned what the heck this new fangled technology was all about. n_n
No. I’m busy with running this site (and several others for that matter) and my life in general. There are rare moments though when I critique something but it is not the norm. If you don’t mind who critiques your material, you’re more than welcome to post in the forum’s Artist Alley or Manga Works section.
FYI, I do not accept manuscripts for your story. Manga Tutorials is NOT a publisher. We only have tutorials here. Nothing else. Please send your work to an actual manga publisher listed here in our Resources page.
You can help the site by doing one of the following:
- Submitting a tutorial, article, or book review
- Link to Manga Tutorials from your web site
- Patronizing our store and sponsors
Sorry, no. I’m typically busy with other obligations so I can’t help you. You can try asking for help in the forum, though.
Either a) your email never got to me, b) I can’t reply to you ( for example, I sent a reply but I get an error message or you didn’t leave an email address), c) your email doesn’t require an answer, d) you expect me to carry a conversation about trivial matters (i.e. favorite anime, etc) which I just delete, or e) I may be on vacation and I haven’t checked my email yet. On occasion, there are times when my internet connection is down or I was upgrading/got a new PC.
No. I already have a mirror of this site at MangaTutorials.net and that is all I need. You cannot post my tutorials or any other part of this site into your own web page. You’re more than welcome to link to any of the pages, tutorials, or what have you here at the site. Also, you may post our video tutorials in your site by getting the embed code for the video.
No. Why? For one thing, this site changes and that includes the updates of my tutorials. The information you translated one day may have changed since then. For another, Google has a pretty neat Translator that people can use. Why do I need you to translate?
Now, if there was a demand for my tutorials to be in a certain language, then that’s when I’ll consider it being translated. Should I ever have them translated, those pages will be hosted here at Manga Tutorials and not at your site or anywhere else. If you’re still serious about translating our tutorials, and don’t mind us hosting the translations, then contact Rio.
If your site has a good amount of drawing or related information that I believe others may find useful, then yes, I will gladly exchange links with you.
Be aware that I do not exchange links with sites that purposely put a lot of ads all over the site making it ridiculously hard for a surfer to browse through the site without hitting an ad. I steer clear of sites like that because it’s annoying as hell and I don’t care to subject any of my community members with that kind of headache.
Also, I generally do not link to sites that have just been formed. For all I know, you may be running the site for three months and then just give up.
If you would like to get an idea what sites I have linked to, check out the Resources page. If your site falls into one of the categories in there, then you have a chance of being linked.
