Gotta Watch TV

FrontlineLately I’ve been watching more and more PBS, and one of the most interesting/valuable/scary programs lately was part 3 of Frontline’s News War series, “What’s Happening to the News.”

An incredibly in-depth look at newspapers, blogs, and the internet, this is (God help me I’m going to say it) must see TV (whew!) for cartoonists.

Go watch it online for free!

Andertoons 2.0 – FAQ/Help

One of the banes of running a popular site are the ever-arriving “something’s not working” or “where’s the thing where I do that” emails.

Don’t get me wrong, if there’s a real problem with the site or a customer’s order, I want to know about it so I can fix it ASAP. But often times, it’s a really simple misunderstanding or question that can be answered by an FAQ/Help page.

The old Andertoons had a FAQ page, but it had become bloated and there was a lot of info I thought people wanted, that they never really did.

So, I pared it down to the questions I get most often, and reorganized it into a number of different pages to make things clearer.

The default page is “FAQ/HELP – Purchasing Cartoons“:


But there are a number of other pages as well that you can navigate to via the left menu bar:


Also, the FAQ/Help link has moved from a main menu placement, to more of an account-centered location in the upper right of each page:


It’s fairly common among sites, and saves more space in the new layout.

Anyway, hope it helps…
