Actually have comics on the 'home' page.

Where is side bar??? Yeah I have same things on top of the page, but it's really hidden and I liked the side bar....

Also I feel like the website has really template-ish and general feel to it, it's... to light?
If I dream of impossible, should I forget it?

on a high resolution screen, the comic pages get all cramped on one side like so:

And when you try to post a picture that's larger than the forum limits, it doesn't resize it like it used to? Yeah, it just cuts it.
Cant click on it to see it properly either.

when you click the forum tab you get "Latest Topics" under the forum but if you go into the forum the latest topics vanishes- I liked that, or somethin at least to show what topics have been recently updated while I'm in the forum. Or like how the buttons used to turn red if theres unread topics inside like the "art jams" icon or whatever.

I know we've had hitlists and playlists and I'm not sure if we have the feature I'm going to suggest but can we have a notification?  Like if we follow an artist we really like, is there a way we could get like an email or pm notification when that artist posts a comic?

For some reason, we have the original Queen of Void match listed under it's own specific thing. However, current Queen and King of Void is listed as Tournament. There should probably be some kind of matching on that.

Could you reconsider? The Manager is the only to access the webcomic manager, it's minor but it gets annoying having to go through "manage my characters" to get to the manager.

I have no idea how technical this is but users being able to directly upload their custom thumbnails without emailing would be great!

I like the floating "maintenance continues" thing here, since you can't really miss it. maybe you could use something of a similar fashion for upcoming events in the future? like a headline and then a link to the actual news page for details?

I liked it when you could see the latest comments/new characters ect on the right side of the page, it disappears once you go into a thread as well as "latest topics". Edit: oops that one has already been mentioned, my bad!

I'm getting a big empty feeling from most of the site right now. Too much white space.

Also, do we really need the arrow button in the lower right-hand corner to take you back to the top?

I'm not sure if the older headers would work because the size of the site itself is drastically different, but that means new headers if we go that route! I do agree about something needing to be in the background to break up the white space.

The site's new theme that was released last week was Step 1 of a whole host of planned changes and improvements for throughout the site.  Since the changes were done 'in place' instead of separate from the live site like I normally do, I was limited to how much I could change while 99% of the site were still on the old, then-current, theme.

That said, I have an idea for comic thumbs... and it will likely forever break the custom thumb collage images some people have used over the years.

This is back now, pretty much everywhere.

Indeed.  I tried to make one, but my image editor wasn't up to the task and I haven't downloaded something better yet.  That said, if anyone wants to make one for me, I'd greatly appreciate it.  My plan was to simply take this and turn it red:

To be fair, this won't be the first time full image custom thumbs will get destroyed. That happened when the # of thumbs per row changed like 2 years ago too.

It's back.  For now.  But I'm still going to try and eliminate it by moving these links and functionality elsewhere.

I was under the impression no one was using webcomics, so I may have questions for you in the future.

Web comics haven't really been used because we've been horrible at advertising that it's a feature and made it kind of weird to set up. Something that should definitely be fixed.

Background image is a maybe.  There's something I wanted to try but didn't get the chance to before going live.

Header images...
The old ones aren't going to work on the new theme.  New ones are being discussed, and I'm sure we'll come up with something.  What's there now was simply an example meant as a proof of concept.  I'm not sure they're in their 'final form' yet, but once we're sure how we're moving ahead, a post will go up spelling out how the community can create new ones.

Kevin,

If the thumbs break for collages, if people want, can they just send you new "generic" ones to fix that problem, if applicable?

Yeah.

Unless there's a blanket way to do it, that could potentially be a lot of effort to fix. I know I personally wouldn't want to have to go through a ton of comic folders and reupload thumbnails. Most of my comics had full image thumbs that got broken in the last layout change and it wasn't that big of a deal.
