I've just figured out that some of the comics on this site are updating, but the ‘last update’ date in my Favorites stays static.
The comics I read that are experiencing this, as far as I can tell:
• Times Like This
• Chevalier
• Fusion (that's not its full name but its full name is a mouthful. Starts ‘Essay Bee presents’…)
There's probably others that I am unfamiliar with.

When you told me Chevalier wasn't showing up in your favorites updates I PQ'd the admins. Hopefully they'll fix it. There are several bugs in the site now.

Yeah. Defaving and refaving the comics doesn't work, by the way.

          YES !  since the “resurrection” my now ONLY reader/commenter told me update notifiers were NOT happening. I've got 3 comics, all several new pages into the “2nd coming” era and they all have an OCT date as their last update.

It's been happening with me, too.  I also checked my “my comics” dropdown and it says Karabear Comics Unlimited hasn't updated since October 17th, despite the fact that I've been putting a comic up every weekday since then.

Might it have something to do with pre-scheduled page releases? (vs. immediate page release)

OK, I've fixed all the comics mentioned in this thread individually… tell me more and I'll do them too.

Thought I'd mention that email updates on comic updates do not work either.

This is because our email system is down :(
the same reason that the password recovery system is totally borked.

You know, i don't know how much it costs to hire someone to fix technical problems of such complexity on a website, but if it's a cost issue, I bet we Duckers could probably all pitch in and donate for it. I know I'd be glad to :)

Thanks for that offer!
Once we get our contract with Wowio underway for community management of the site we hope to get a kickstarter underway to fund the repairs and enhancements and then opensource the code so we can have fixes provided by anyone who wants to help and add stuff :)

Has there been any update on the status of this glitch?
Normally I would just use my “Morning Coffee” plug-in to keep up to date for some of my favorites that have their own site, but a lot of them only post here on The Duck and if you forget to set a “Duckmark” you wind up going back sometimes 3 months or more (as in the case of “Magical Misfits”) to get caught up.
Plus the problem with “Morning Coffee” is that it only works if the site you go to updates on a fixed regular cycle. If the site updates when it can (in the case of "Cwen's Quest), you wind up looking at the same page once a week and hoping it doesn't update between viewings.
