Inksgiving 2020 Announcement!Nov 09, 2020
Welcome to our 3rd annual Inksgiving! Join us in our favorite tradition here at Tapas and give back to our wonderful community of creators.
For 48 hours, starting from Friday, November 20th (3:00 pm PT) to Sunday, November 22nd (3:00 pm PT), every drop of Ink given to any creator on Tapas will contribute to the overall goal of 20 million drops of Ink. This is the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, save the date!
Make sure to wait until 3:00 pm PT on November 20th to start Supporting, any Ink given prior to this time will not count towards the goal.
It gets better. For each goal we reach, Tapas will give back a certain percentage of the Ink* contributed by supporters. If we hit our goal of 20 million drops of Ink, you will receive 20% of your contribution in Ink back, if you Supported, after 30 days!
*Ink used to unlock episodes will not count towards the overall goal, only Ink used to Support.
Frequently Asked Questions
Inksgiving is about celebrating all the diverse voices, stories, and creators that have found a home on Tapas. This is a community-driven event where all members of the Tapas community, from readers to creators to staff, are encouraged to Support creators through the gifting of Ink. Tapas would not be Tapas without our creators.
What should creators do?
Spread the word! Rally the support of your fans and readers and explain how they can Support with Ink (i.e. an episode in your series, a post on your wall, or a social media post, using the hashtag #inksgiving2020). We've created a small support package, including templates to help you announce Inksgiving to your fans!
IMPORTANT: In order to allow as many creators as possible to join Inksgiving, we will activate the Support feature for creators until November 16th. If you have under 250 subscribers on your series but want to join Inksgiving, please link your Tapas account (not your series) in this forum. Standard rules and regulations still apply for the Support Program. You must be 18 years or older in order to participate.
How can I participate?
Buy or earn some Ink and then start thinking about which creators you want to support! We’ll be running a special promotion for Ink during Inksgiving, so don’t forget to check our Ink shop!
Then, locate your favorite creator's Support button on their series page or profile (on the mobile app or website) to send them Ink along with an encouraging message!
What happens during the event?
There will be a custom landing page to track the progress and major milestones of the event as well as to read positive support messages flooding in from fans in real-time. Fans and readers, this is your time to shine.
Anything else I need to know?
We'll also be hosting merch and Ink giveaways on our social media channels so be sure to give those a follow to keep updated!
For any additional questions, please reply to our forum post here. We look forward to seeing you there! Happy Inksgiving!
