When you post a comment on juanpress.org, you are expected to be respectful towards any and every individual of the juanpress.org community to whom you may be addressing. When posting artistic criticism about a particular comic, you are expected to be constructive in your comments, so that the author of the comic can understand how to improve upon his/her work.
Examples of constructive criticism:
"You need to work on your inking skills. Your lines are too blotchy, try to make them smoother."
"Your storyline is too confusing. Try not to introduce too many characters at a time without significantly establishing their personalities and characteristics first".
"The proportions of the limbs are off, particularly the left leg is too long, and the right hand is too large."
Examples of unconstructive criticism:
"This shit sucks."
"Maybe if you actually put some effort into this crap people would have nicer things to say about it."
"Yeah, the product is complete shit, and I mean it."
While unconstructive criticism is frowned upon, it is generally not severely punished in small doses. However, we certainly do not tolerate harassment.
In order to post in the community forums, participate in contest or just leave coment, you must signup for a free community account.
No newsletters or promotions are sent to your email address and your account details are not shared with any third-party without your consent. Except if you subscribe to updates to gain points.

Harassing others is very likely to get you banned from juanpress.org. Gathering friends to harass others is almost guaranteed to get you (and all involved) banned from juanpress.org. It is up to the sole discretion of the administrators of juanpress.org to determine whether or not a user is harassing others and, if necessary, the appropriate punishment for that user (ban or comment deletion).
A comic author is anyone who uploads comics onto juanpress.org.
Generally, don't break any laws through our service.
Certainly do not upload published comics that are not your own to juanpress.org. Fan comics, doujinshi, and the use of copyrighted sprites is generally okay as long as the owners of the copyrighted material do not have any problems with it.
All content you post on juanpress.org must be a) legal in your own country and b) legal in the United States. Generally speaking, material that would fit into the MPAA's "Rated R" category and below (PG-13, G, etc.) is allowed on juanpress.org. Material that is clearly not suitable for minors requires the activation of the Mature Content warning.
Material that would be considered legally obscene, including the depiction of child pornography, is explicitly banned from juanpress.org. Comics that present material with great (or sole) priority and importance placed on evoking sexual arousal from the audience while lacking substantial quality in art, focus or presentation on other topics of interest [ie: romance, comedy, etc] are liable to be removed for bearing too close of resemblance to pornographic material rather than a comic that tackles adult subject matters.
juanpress.org does not make any claim to hold copyright to any images uploaded by comic authors, unless explicitly stated. (i.e. if juanpress.org held a contest for the best so-and-so type of image, we would inform you if we wanted to claim copyright to any material submitted)
Liability for content
This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, businesses, places, events and incidents are either the products of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.
Liability for links
Our site contains links to external websites, over which we have no control. Therefore we can not accept any responsibility for their content. The provider or operator is always responsible for the content of linked pages. The linked sites were checked at the time of linking for possible legal violations. Illegal contents were at the time of linking. A permanent control of the linked pages is unreasonable without concrete evidence of a violation. Upon notification of violations, we will immediately remove such links.
How much disk space and bandwidth will my plan include?
Only Bandwidth is "Unmetered" which means you are not charged according to the amount of bandwidth you use.
However, that being said, we do require all customers to be fully compliant with our Terms of Service and to only utilize disk space and bandwidth in the normal operation of a personal or small business website.
For example, customers who are using 25% or more of system resources for longer than 90 seconds would be in violation of our Terms of Service.
While Storage has a fixed limit based on the membership tier.
What happens if I exceed usage?
If we have concerns about your account's bandwidth or disk space utilization, you will receive an email asking you to reduce usage.
Again, it is very rare for a customer who is managing a personal or small business website to exceed our usage policies.
Terms of Service
These Terms of Service are subject to change with or without notice at any time (though the spirit of these T.O.S. are likely to always stay the same).
