1) What does this site do? 
This site displays the latest comics available from a variety of sites along with the date and time of their last update.

We do this to enable internet geeks to keep up with their favourite webcomics quickly and easily, without having to check indivdual sites just to find updates. This is especially useful if you do not have a fast internet connection.
2) How does it work? 
A perl script periodically checks the comic pages of the sites listed in our database to see if a new comic has been added. If this is the case then the last update time in the database is altered and the comic appears updated on the website.
3) What happened to the program? 
The program was discontinued as it was not very stable and lacking time meant that no improvements were planned.

The program is currently being re-developed and will hopefully be released soon.
4) Will you list my comic? 
Certainly, just use the suggest a comic page to add comics to the site.
5) What comics can't you check for updates? 
In order to check a comic for updates there needs to be a single HTML page that shows the latest comic on that site. Currently we cannot checksites that primarily use flash as there is no way of determining when a comic has been updated.
6) How long does it take for a comic to be processed? 
It may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks before a comic is checked for updates, depending on how busy I am. Please bear in mind that I work through the list of requested comics in order so it may take a while before I get to your comic.

I generally process comics within a few days, but ocassionally work over powers me. If your comic hasn't been processed after a few days, please do not panic, I will get to it eventually.
7) What will you use my email address for? 
Your email address is used as your account username, it will never be revealed to 3rd parties or displayed on this website. The only time your email address if ever used is when you enter it to log back into the system.
8) Comics keep appearing as unhidden, why? 
Everytime a new comic is added to the site you as a user have set to preferences about it, i.e. you haven't selected it as hidden or as a favourite.

If you do not wish new comics to appear on list, please change the setting in your preferences, this will hide all new comics.
9) How do you decide what comics are related? 
The decision on which related comics are displayed on the comic profile pages is quite a simple one.

The list is generated from the favourites kept in peoples profiles, we then remove any comics in your favourites or hidden lists to suggest new comics that you hopefully won't have seen before.
10) How does the ranking algorithm work? 
The ranking algorithm works by considering the number of visits per update. We do this to ensure that popular comics that update infrequently get a fair ranking.

Certain other things are taken into consideration when doing comic rankings but we would prefer to keep those secret.
11) Some comics disappear from my unread comics list, why? 
We're not quite sure why this is but if you click the 'mark all comics read' option it should fix this error for you
