By this 'positive vibe' thing, are we able to include somehow depressing things such as death, or angst with a heart-warming end?

Sounds cool to me...I am giving a shot :D
If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.

Hello, this may be a stupid question but when they say B4 size paper do they mean that one B4 paper contains one page of the doujin or two? I know most manga artists divide a B4 paper into two halves and each half is one page - is this the format we're expected to use?

Dusklight> well, you don't need to do anything :-/
Kaiten> At this stage I think there's no need to re-register, just submit your work with clear credits.
Kasumi> 1 B4 = 1 page
nim> @_@ did the dateline extended?

Uhm, do we need to add in Author's bio, and notes? You know, like those pages that are completely blank, and the only thing there is something about "Hello! I am -insert name here-. Thanks for buying/reading!" ?
