Brief Update on New Comixpedia Site

TRANSITION PREVIEW: I haven't discovered any fatal flaws to the new BETA site yet so towards the end of the month we'll be transitioning over to it permanently. How will this work? I'll warn everyone when but the comixpedia.com domain will "float" over to the new site leaving this site still reachable at comixpedia.net. That'll probably mean a few wacky days of DNS changes where your best bet will be to stick to altertainment.net for the new site and comixpedia.net for the current site.

LIBRARY UPDATE: I haven't found any showstoppers for the new library either. I made some improvements based on feedback although I could certainly use lots more. Be sure to check out the suggestion page to add entries or if you're a creator go to this forum post for some creator-specific guidance on how to get the most out of this new part of the site. One thing claiming your creator entry gives you is the ability to update news about you. The most recent updates will show up on the Comixpedia home page and the front page of the library.

FORUM TRANSITION: Speaking of forums right now the plan is to start over in the new forums -- which btw are open and available to use. I'll be looking for folks interested in being active moderators for the new forums (email me at xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com if you are interested) as well. The current forum install is pretty banged up with lots of virtual duck tape everywhere. I'll be keeping it up at comixpedia.net for at least awhile after the transition later this month but I'm not sure whether I can keep the current forums archived forever or not. In part that'll depend on what you all want (it'll also depend on what's technically feasible).

You'd want to read the description of that creator maybe...

"Description: A Test entry. WITH EDITS"

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

Definitely - but ultimately it'll probably be more of the webcomic encyclopedia feeding into the library I expect.

Re: Brief Update on New Comixpedia Site

You know... I find Altertainment to be a much better name than Comixpedia for the magazine... Maybe because Comixpedia.org is now filing the role of the "encyclopedia" type name.

You should follow my whims and change it for ever and ever.

Btw, I notice an entry http://altertainment.net/index.php?name=Library&req=webcomicsview&wid=157

I check on it, it direct me to paypal. My google search turn out not remotely to what I am hoping to look for. I say it a gerbberish nonsense entry with no verfiable proof that such a webcomic named after that.

Your Library stuff provide a great source of new webcomics to add for comixpedia.org :)
