Top Web Comics has done a redesign of their site

http://topwebcomics.com

Currently, the little voting banner widget thingies a lot of webcomics have on their sites are not working normally: no TWC list rank number is displayed, and clicking the widget redirects to the TWC home page rather than to the comic's voting page.

Voting for a comic still seems to work if you can find it in their list, and I've noticed that the listing pages just seem to have a slightly different URL now; for instance, the old one I was given when I set up my widget was

http://topwebcomics.com/vote/9188/default.aspx

but the voting page for my comic at the moment is actually just

http://topwebcomics.com/vote/9188/

--the "default.aspx" has been removed.

TWC says

https://www.facebook.com/Top-Web-Comics-142853089093372/?fref=nf

that most of their stuff will be fixed "early next week," so possibly the old widgets will automatically start working again then. But if you need a working voting link in the meantime, you can use your old link minus the "default.aspx" on the end. (Mind, if you change the link on your widget and they end up going back to the old link, which is quite possible, then you will have to change your altered link back!)

Other things I've noticed currently not working are the script that used to be able to pull your rank number for custom scripting purposes, and the thingy on their site that is supposed to let you upload a voting banner at a higher resolution (they are now displaying banners at a larger size in the list, but most look blurry because they're still the old 468x60 banners--which are also displayed at their original size on voting pages, etc--kind of a mess :P).

the thing about topwebcomics is i'm not sure how reliable the numbers are. some of the numbers seem extreme. if you have those kind of views you should be printing your comic for sale

Good point!

At any rate, a good deal of their functionality has now been restored, including link button/widget thingies.

There are apparently still a few problems with users being logged out or being told they've already voted when trying to vote on multiple comics--they're gathering feedback on problems people are still experiencing via their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1151796318199039&id=142853089093372
