Latest update news
Here's your weekly update for the progress of the site development! Three things:
- Alexey and I have come up with all the genres and things that will be in each of the lists on the front page! I'll list those bellow. You might have some suggestions about that.
- The rest of the money has all been paid for the front page, this was unfunded so came from me personally again, but I hope to balance that out eventually through ads, Patreon, and other ways of raising money. Alexey's charges are quite low though so we get good bang for our buck.
- Alexey is currently working on the News section of the front page, hence the cover image.
Front page top ten lists:
Put your thinking caps on because this could be tricky to comprehend, I'll try and be as clear as I can.
Em came up with 5 main lists that show up on the front page, you can see them all here https://next.theduckwebcomics.com/
This is them:
s1. ALL ACTION, NO TALK
s2. HERE FOR THE TEA
s3. OH! THE HORROR!
s4. TO HORIZONS BEYOND
s5. FOR THE LOLS
It's all very well to have different categories but what do they actually represent? We have a whole bunch of “genres” comics can be listed under, this is all of them:
g9. Real Life
There are also 3 “tones”:
This is how I decided to parcel them out:
S1= g2, g6, g13, g15, g16.
S2= g1, g5, g8, g9, g10, g12, g14.
S4= g3, g11.
S5= g7, T1.
- “For the lols” is the only one to get a “tone”, ie Comedy. Comedies can be in any category, but “Drama” and “Other” are excluded from the “For the lols” list.
- It might look as if “Here for the tea” is overloaded, but the reality is that a lot of those genres don't actually have many comics in them.
- “All action, no talk” is similar in that only a couple of the genres represent most of the comics.
- “To Horizons and Beyond” is a super-powered one with those those genres representing many comics.
- “Oh, the horror” is the only outlier because they're aren't many horror comics and that's its only genre… Not sure what to do about that. AT least it'll be a good loophole for a certain spot on the front page! Just do a horror comic… Or a horror comedy to double your chances.
- All these lists will have about 25 comics in them (because it horizontally scrolls), and will be ordered by popularity so that the front page shows visitors the “best” that the site has to offer, so to speak.
Also, PLEASE remember that the prime purpose of multiple lists is so that we have a LOT more comics getting a chance to be promoted on the front page, we want to increase their visibility.
- The “Favourites” list only shows up for logged in members (nothing will be there for people who are not logged in), and is ordered by most recent first, as are the “Recently Updated” and “Featured comics”.
