Few things:

I can't send a PQ, still. It doesn't go to any sort of “PQ sent!” screen, and it doesn't show up in my sent folder. 
Is there any way to PQ someone via their profile? I'm trying to contact someone who doesn't post in the forums at all, and I'm not sure how else to get ahold of them besides composing a message. What worries me is that it could send to the wrong person or maybe not at all.
Lastly, is there a way to check when someone was online last anymore? Again, I'm trying to get ahold of one person in paticular, and it would be nice to see if they've even been on recently at all.

is it normal to have lost all the comments that people have left under your comic?

Hey, very minor thing, but:
The “say it” button underneath comics is a dull grey on grey colour scheme that makes it look like an inactive control.
Can it be recoloured to something that makes it look like an active button, please?

Don't know if these have been mentioned already.
For a while I could not log on as I kept getting a page saying I times out. I'm using Firefox 5.0
How do you fav a comic with the new settings? I tried it, but can't seem to firgure it out. I tried Duckmark, and recommend comic. I also tried the ‘Like this comic’ button at the bottom.

I still have this problem now, but only if I try to compose a new one. I click the send button and it does is apparently reload the page, except all the fields remain filled out.
Using Firefox 5.0 and Windows 7.

I miss the “TODAY” listing. It's a bit harder to tell which comics have updated in My Favorites now. :/

Seeing as it thinks I'm offline, and labels almost everyone as online.
Is it possible that it's just a time delay, like maybe the database only updates that every five or ten minutes?

So far at the moment, nothing seems to be broken for me. I dunno if it's my adblocker though on Firefox which seems to have made two weird grey blocks on the right and left sides of my comic. Or are they placeholders for something?
It's the adblocker, those are the ad spaces.

Since PQs aren't working, send me an email (or PM on the other forum) and tell me who they are, I can look that up.

All the comments which were just a number vote (like 5) didn't carry over because there's no vote system on the new site. Comments where people said stuff should have come over!

Up in that topbar on a comic where you see duckmark, recommend, etc. Click on “favorites” - you should see a red-text option to ADD favorite. It does seem a little hidden.

I might have been totally off my rocker, but wasn't the original site supposed to be open at the domain old.drunkduck so we could retreive images we might have lost?

That was the plan, but apparently the old DD is on Platinum's servers (another reason we had to get onto a new site sooner rather than later) and they're no longer accessible. I'm sure there will be an announcement if that changes, but yeah it kinda sucks.

I don't understand, what did you change? Just removed the index.php part at the end? I know some other people whose redirects weren't working, it would be good to pass that info along.
 
And we do have mass uploads! Although I don't know if that's the kind you were thinking of. What were you thinking of?

I'm still concerned about how I would go about PQing someone since a button doesn't appear unless you've made a post in the forums. I know you can do it via “compose” but can anybody clarify if they're going to open up the option in profiles again? I don't know why they'd remove that in the first place.

I'm not sure if this has been posted or mentioned.
…But are the comic rankings coming back?
And are the stats working? They don't seem to be changing for my comic (not sure if they're just not changing…haha).
I like the new site, though! Looking forward to digging into these new design features!!
-thanks

Banes: Last they mentioned, they were still migrating, but there's not an ETA we've heard of as of yet. I'm awaiting them too.

Yeah, I definitely agree with this.  Though I'm sure it will be some time before we can start making cosmetic change suggestions seeing that there are quite a few functionality problems still going around.

Just a quick update on various site issues:

Sending PQs should work now. Also, usernames are no longer case-sensitive when sending PQs
Down arrows should work again when re-ordering comic pages
You can use bulk uploading to upload any amount of pages between 1-10, as long as you select the correct number in the drop-down menu
Comics will show last updated correctly now. At midnight tonight (PST) everything should update to the correct date, or whenever you add a new page.
You can create threads again in the Forums

Once again, I'm not sure if this has been mentioned because I don't have time to trudge through the comments, but:
Yesterday I was trying to leave a comment on a comic, but when I pressed the button to post it, the comment as well as the comments left by other people disappeared (to me, I mean the comments left by others didn't disappear from the site, the disappeared from view and my comment was eaten to I had to rewrite it).

Ok, but are you going to implement a PQ button in profiles, because copy and pasting the names seems somewhat archiac and dumb when in the year 2011 everything is one-click.

Also, what about our stats? Primarily pageviews?
And the faving system is a little cumbersome. I can't easily fave any new comics. In fact I still don't know how. :(

Please fix the “last update” function. I really want to know when my favorites have new pages. :)

just thought you should know - i dont know how many users are on your site who have huges net as their provider but hugesnet has a download counter and a limit that once you reach it slows your speed down and the new site sucks it down even faster than video on u tube i dont know if it is all the adds or what but i think this is going to discourage those of us who live out in the sticks from using the site anymore hope you can fix it because there really is not another good comics host i have checked
