• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Websnark is a website run by Eric Burns-White (formerly Eric Burns). It is seen as one of the most (if not the most) in-depth and detailed sources of Web Comics analysis.

Like Television Without Pity, it provides snarky commentary and reviews on webcomic plots and structure. It academically pulls a webcomic apart by the tropes and points out everything good and bad about them. It is considered by many artists and creators a sign that your comic has made it if it is mentioned on the Websnark front page. This usually results in a massive boost in its readership, as at its peak Websnark received over 60,000 hits a day.

It has two main writers, husband and wife Eric and Wednesday Burns-White, who tackle different areas of the genre. These days the site isn't quite abandoned, but it only gets new posts once or twice in a blue moon.

Oh, and it's not actually intended to be a webcomics blog - just a site where the Burns-Whites post about stuff they find interesting. It just happens that they frequently find webcomics interesting.
