What is my comic rating based on?

According to my stats page I am 500 and something out of comic books and 750 something overall.
What does this mean and how is it calculated? And how does my ranking compare to other peoples, what is a good ranking, what is a crap one etc?
I have only just started so I am assuming I must be fairly lowly ranked.

Out of the several thousand comics on DD, (some with no pages mind you), your comic is the 750th most read and the 500th most read out of the comics listed as being “stories”. That's pretty good :)

Wow, what do I have to do to get an award for my ranking?

Wait :)

Sometimes it doesn't come at all, the trophy system is broken. I never got mine from when I was in the top ten and top five. :(

Here is a related question.
One the front page there is a column for newly updated things, one for random stuff and another titled “everything”.
I noticed, however, that the everything column always appears in the same order (at so far for me). Is it just the order the comics were posted on drunk duck (since it is clearly not alphabetical)?
I was just wondering as obviously appearing at the front is a big advantage for comic promotion purposes.

The column that's neither random nor newly updated is “most popular.” (Which in some ways seems to me to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. But I think that's why they put in the other two columns.) If you look closely, they all say “everything.” You can click “everything” and filter out stuff you don't want to see. (All “A” rated comics or all Sprite comics for example.)

Do the most popular ones change at all then?

In the few weeks I've been keeping a (rather informal) watch on them, my impression is that they shift around a little. And sometimes there's a big jump by something or another that was #11-15ish and it appears on the front page for a while. And once in a while something totally random will appear for no reason I can see, stick around for a bit and vanish again. But for the most part, I can guess what 8+ of the top ten will be before I load the page.

(Of course, now that I've said this where people can see it, they'll all be different tomorrow. :P Watch and see.)

Oh good, someone made a topic about this. I was curious myself as I saw my rank soaring fast since day one (where I think I started at like rank 8000 or something crazy >.>) and I caught my rank rising when I didn't get any hits on my page so I was curious what led to it going up if it wasn't views.

Remember, if you are in a rank with other people it also depends on whether THEY are or are not getting views ;)

You could be in the top 500 and then suddenly drop down to 800 just because all the people under you suddenly got a lot more views while you're still getting pretty much the same.

And the reverse too; You might be getting the same views, but 50 or so people in front of you somewhere stopped updating for a while so their views decrease meaning that YOU soar up. :)

My ranking does go down every time I post, so the system works.
Now I know how it is calculated, I need to get on another thread to work out how to actually get my rating lower!

It's nice to know the information in this thread is proving useful to other people too.
I was thinking I was asking really goofy questions when I started it!

Ugh. I just noticed today too that “Riftjackal” got #423 in Comic Book/Story and #569 Overall. And I didn't get the TOP 500, TOP 1000 trohpy…

It's broken right? Argh…. well that sucks. >_<]/

yeah, I'm 800 something, but alas, no trophy.

eh, not too big of a deal, I'm more interested in the ratings themselves than the awards for them. for a comic with only four strips, its rank surprises me greatly XD

Out of the several thousand comics on DD, (some with no pages mind you),

As a interesting sidenote, i tested to create a new comic and it got these statistics:

#8,652 in Comic Book/Story #14,538 Overall

That's a lot of comics.

I made it to the top 50 long ago with my hugely succesful, Anime Remix. But I still don't even have a top 1,000 trophy… :(
