Occasionally there's a page in a comic that's so excellent for one reason or another that I just want to say "awesome"! How about a thumbs-up or 'sweet' or other "I really like this page" button?

I second this idea!

Some suggestions for homepage tweaks:

  • Only show a couple rows of Recent Favorites, with the entirety being on a separate page. I’ve starred enough things that it drowns out the other sections below it.
  • Do away with Recently Published. It seems redundant when Just Published flows naturally into All Titles, which are sorted by last published date.
  • Include bonuses in Just Published if they are not already. I seem to lose track of them each month, and I wonder if this is partly why.

I third it, but don’t know offhand how it would jive with All Pages view.

One feature that would be nice is having some sort of link between volumes of a comic - for example, between By the Book and By the Book 2, or Roll-Playing and Roll-Playing 2, or Bearing Gifts and Found Objects 3 (particularly that last one since trying to get from Found Objects 3 to the earlier comics in the series requires either an exhaustive search of the archives or knowing what the previous title was).

It's not a bad idea! Right now, there are just "titles" and "issues", and no real concept of a grouping higher than "title". It's not impossible to add, though!

Maybe you could add something like "if you liked this title you might also like these other titles" cross-links.

Hrm, yeah, it's not a big problem, except when it is. Prev/Next title links would make the most sense to me from a user perspective.

As a separate idea, since you've got stars, could generate per-title recommendations for different comics based on some heuristic. Dunno how good that data is though. Bit of a chicken and the egg problem~

"based on some heuristic" in a customer feature request I can handle. When I see it in a project requirements document I have an uncontrollable urge to throw myself out a window.

Thank god I'm on the ground floor.

If I saw that in a requirements document I'd give them exactly what they asked for.  Nobody specified that the heuristic had to be *useful*.

I still have too much faith in my fellow humans. It hasn't been crushed out of me yet by Kafkaesque corporate bullshit. By which I mean, you have my sympathies, gentlepersons.

Going over the RFP and comparing it to the bid I'd worked on, the potential client asked, "does it support DSP?"
The requirement literally was, "Must support DSP."
Got the contract by demonstrating the inputs could be multiplied by zero.

I refer to Grey Shadow's comments regarding following the stories he likes if he has problems searching for links why does he not create a folder on his computer and use the download button to save his favorites then he wont have this problem.

I am actually writing to inquire why nearly all the stories are obsessed about women with large or enlarged breasts after all there there are women who have small and medium sized ones who are just as sexy as those with larger breast but MCC stories seem to always insist that the women have enlargements whatever the cause to the outrageous "Beyond Rubies". It looks as if all who create the stories at MCC have a breast fixation.

Another point I wish to raise is what has happened to what I call the one offs ie complete stories in one issue these seen to have disappeared completely in favor of starting new stories to be continued it is frustrating to find so many of these unfinished ones littered throughout the catalogue.

Can we at least have a list of those stories MCC you intend to complete or abandon as you have no idea how to finish them ?

Not everyone can (or wants to) download.

Yes.

No, because we don't know what we're going to do with them. We might continue them, we might leave them on hiatus.
