Help, Support and Suggestions

Why are my horror and superhero comics showing up as fantasy?

Am I the only one having this problem? The thumbnails for two my comics show they're of the fantasy genre when I clearly remember choosing “horror” and “superhero” for them. Trying to change them through advanced settings doesn't seem to work. Plus, I'm not sure if I"m the only one seeing this. Should I change my thumbnails, or restart the comic all over again, because I'm not sure what to do.

The comics are saved correctly as horror and superhero in the system (you can check this on your comic's account pages, in the ‘advanced description’ area), it's just the thumbnails that are wrong. For whatever reason, the thumbs aren't updated when ratings or genres are changed.

Logically, uploading a new thumbnail (whether it's the same image or not- but give it a different filename before uploading it just in case) should trigger it to go fetch the new details and put them on. However I've not had to try it before so I'm not totally certain it would work :)

I'll try posting a new thumbnail and see if it changes anything.

Edit: It didn't. Different picture with a different file name didn't change the genre icon at all. Now I don't know what to do.

In that case I don't really know what to suggest…. I'm not sure how to force the system to update those icons :[ I'm sorry

When I posted my one and only comic, I posted it as parody (although its not parody I had trouble fitting it into another catagory) but for some reason it said it was a fantasy.
