Comic Status Explained  
In total there are 6 different status values that a comic can have, below is the list:
  • Pattern Not Matching
    This shows a fault either with the pattern using to watch for updates or with the comic site itself.

    Often this is caused when comics authors change the layout of their site or do something special for a one off guest strip. If the comic site is producing a irregular error message (such as a notice informing that the bandwidth limit has been exceeded) then this will also result in this status being shown.

  • Could Not Connect to Site
    Less serious than the above, this does exactly what it says on the tin: the crawler could not connect to the comic site to check for updates.

    This could either be due to network problems or the web server that the comic site is hosted on, these problems normally clear up after a few days.

  • Not Yet Processed
    This means that the comic has been added to the site but the crawler does not yet check if for updates. This is because each comic has to have a manual entry to enable us to check for updates.

    The comic will move from this status when a pattern is entered by someone on the admin team for this comic

  • Not Checked For Updates
    Quite simply we do not check this comic for updates. This can be for many reasons, maybe the comic has now finished or is incompatible with our crawler.

  • Updates Processed Manually
    A few select comics which cannot be processed by the crawler have their updates entered manually, usually by the comic owner. You have to be special to have this status assigned to your comic!

  • Normal
    The most common status (hopefully!), this means that everything is functioning as it should. On the last attempt the crawler managed to connect to the comic site and its pattern matched, this one is good.
