Fine Print

While I try to be as straightforward as I can with what I say, sometimes, all the fiddly little bits can get lost when I’m making a blanket statement. Blanket statements are a lot easier to, say, link in a Patreon reward. So if there are any rules or guidelines that I want to make sure exist, but won’t fit in the space, I’ll update this list.

I don’t expect any of this to actually come up and be used, but I’d like it to be out there, just in case.

On Commissioning an Image or Comic(Via Patreon Reward or Tip Jar)

  1. The ‘commissioned’ work is my property. If I feel the article is worth publicly posting, I shall. There’s probably leagalese I should research for the type of deal this is, but I don’t have time for that, ya know?
  2. I will include a name and a link of your choice in the description. Ideally, this should be your name and your website or similar. I have the right to leave out the link or the name if things are getting too ridiculous. Should be straightforward, but you never know with internet people.
  3. My style tends towards cartoony, so don’t expect anything realistic. I’ll do what I can if you specify, of course, but no guarantees.
  4. I’m not going to do anything pornographic, gory, etc. Its just not what I do, so don’t expect it. Also, any requests that make me feel uncomfortable, I shan’t do.

On Commissioning an Article (Via Patreon Reward or Tip Jar)

  1. I will use my best effort to make the article at least 2000 words. It may be that a subject doesn’t deserve that many and I can’t find them for it. I don’t see it happening, but the 2000 words is not an iron clad guarantee.
  2. The ‘commissioned’ work is my property. If I feel the article is worth publicly posting, I shall. There’s probably leagalese I should research for the type of deal this is, but I don’t have time for that, ya know?
  3. I will include a name and a link of your choice. Ideally, this should be your name and your website or similar. I have the right to leave out the link or the name if things are getting too ridiculous. Should be straightforward, but you never know with internet people.
  4. If I am asked to write on some kind of content, say a movie, tv show, written material, etc. I may not finish the source before I write my thing. I’ll try to devote at least 2 hours to it, even if I don’t like it. But if I’m having a miserable time, 2 hours is my cut off.
  5. There are sources I’m not going to view. Anything pornographic, too gory, obviously annoying or trolly, stupidly boring. If I can tell from the start if I’ll reject it, I’ll try to let you know and have you choose again.
  6. Hand in hand with that, if asked to write some prose or something, I’m not going to do anything pornographic, gory, etc. Its just not what I do, so don’t expect it. Also, any requests that make me feel uncomfortable, I shan’t do. I will also avoid talking about politics wherever I can, and try not to talk about religion as well.
  7. If the article in question deals with the details of future plot points in various projects of mine, I reserve the right to be as cagey as I want. I don’t have things set in stone ages in advance. Things move around, change, evolve, and get thrown away whenever I feel is necessary. And if I do have something awesome planned, I might not want to reveal it before the reveal. And anything I do write about the future should be taken with a grain of salt, as I could go and change what I’m going to do.
  8. I should also say that I’m not going to do your school work for you. Well, not without A. a good deal more money, B. a very detailed list of the assignment’s requirements, and C. an official looking document acknowledging you accept all consequences of out sourcing your work. It’s probably better that you don’t ask. and If I get the feeling that you’re having me do school work without telling me, well, I’ve never promised high quality or timeliness on these articles, have I?

 

There may be more added to these later, but this is the list of qualifications on the idea, as of March, 2017.
