This week I was going to talk about a comic i had found by browsing the Featured lists and seeing what else did not take off after being featured, when it really should have. A little like Grunk from last time out. Then another subject came to me and i thought, why not use this article as a chance to have my say about something.
Technically, im still drawing your attention to something, but this time it's not actually a comic. This time it is something that is missing from an old format of the website, back when this Duck was drunk, and it also to a way we can get around it to the benefit of creators.
The feature im talking about it the rating. Back then when you used to be able to select a little drop down and choose a number between 1-5 that expressed your opinion of the page. A simple thing but so needed on a site like this and if there is ANY chance it could be brought back, please let them do it. As a creator, i put time and effort into making my Energize, and really the only way i know if someone is out there is the stats. If you have dedicated readers, they will comment, which is always massively appreciated. But as a reader, i know that sometimes, i haven't got a comment about the story or the art, i just enjoyed seeing the next page. That was when it was great to give it a 5.
I personally will always put something, be it a “nice page” or a “great page” and sometime for nostalgia's sake a “5*”. If someone has taken the time and effort to create a comic, one that i enjoy for FREE, then the least i can do is say something. I don't want to be a random page hit in the stats, i want them to know “I support your comic”. Granted, sometimes i am catching up and will only comment on the latest page, but if i read it, i make it known.
So next time you are reading a comic, don't just be a stat, leave a comment. Even if it is “5*” just to say you are there. I promise there is nothing more motivational to creators.
Thanks for reading
