Um, we do have a help forum here ;)

But the trouble is that comics with only 3 letter names don't show up in search and browse :(

Wow, I didn't know that about the search engine. I'm glad I clicked on this thread now. Thanks Ozone for the heads up. Luckily I went in the completely opposite direction with one of the longest title names on DD!

Somewhere in San Fransisco Half Way Beyond The Bridge and The Tower Lies A Place Where Nothing is Ever What It Seems On A Day to Day Basis Because That Is What Happens in This Kinda Place

That comic has seven kinds of awesome.
Please, please, you give me too little credit.

Have a comic with a name thats eponymous and iconic, like futurama, penis, zxipi, or elftor.

so wait, just cuz it's three letters long means that it's not iconic? talk about biased.

Depends on the context, really. How it stands out. Like CNN for example.

right, no i get that. really all i'm trying to say is “hey, i work hard on this comic, i think it should pop up when you literally type it in the search bar” but it doesn't. so that kinda ticks me off.

Ah, I understand.

Though it would be more along the lines of glaring flaw in the search system (…like not having the ability to edit thread titles in the forums) instead of bias. :D
