    Great job Dan!

  3. cwDeici Says:

    What was the chat like? I’m guessing an adorable mix of love and faux berating. :D

  4. Not One Of Us Says:

    faux?

  5. cwDeici Says:

    weeeeeeeeeeellllll……. it’s a good sort of berating, aight? ^_^

  6. Okaeri Says:

  7. Aristagon Says:

    I wish to see more witches :D

  8. sp_ Says:

    I always manage to miss these drawstreams. Even though I check this god damn website every day.

  9. Okaeri Says:

    3 times per day master race here.

  10. couchfort Says:

    Dan… what is this layout? I hate it, it’s so overwhelming and unnecessary

  11. Dan Says:

    Still making modifications. Hopefully it’s better now.

  12. zibba Says:

    bluh, can’t tweet. I liked the older version better, but that’s just me…

  13. Always bet on Snax Says:

    Maybe include an ‘expert mode’ again which removes or significantly reduces the banner size and replace that area with something else like more blog posts.

  14. sp_ Says:

    When are you sending out the books? I decided I want mine shipped to a different address. Is it enough to just change it on kickstarter?

  15. Dan Says:

    If you’re A) outside the USA and B) ordered a non-leather book, your book has already shipped. Otherwise, mail me quickly with your ks username and new address– your book might still be here.

  16. TheEFAF Says:

    Dear god, Dan, what have you done to the site. Test your shit out where we can’t see it! And this layout is bad!

    DAN, STAHP. STAAAAHP.

  17. Dan Says:

    : ( : ( : (

    It’ll get there.

    The stuff I want the front page to do:
    – expose more update content without requiring a lot of reading
    – more automation (drawstream notice, update tracking, etc.)
    – collapse nicely on both desktops and phones

    Also:
    – better gallery navigation
    – expose comic content better (drop down list sucks for new readers)

    … well, it’ll get there. : <

  18. Aristagon Says:

    The Design is still weird

    BUT I like:

    -the Titleimage is Back.
    -Eventanouncements

    Dislike:
    -The row of Sideimages from your postings were always nice to see.
    -The Postings so far left seems a bit unbalance in pagecomposition

    Dont worry, we, your humble fans will wait for every fail, in faithfull patiences.

    Seriously.
    Any Progress is good progress.

  19. Dan Says:

    Hm, thanks for the useful feedback. I’ll see what I can do…

  20. couchfort Says:

    The entire top bar is overwhelming, I don’t like the condensed update section, and the barrage of pictures below it. There’s too much happening at once. And why is the Store bar blue?

  21. admin Says:

    Top page updated!

  22. Always bet on Snax Says:

    The design is much better but perhaps include a “Last updated: ” beside your latest drawings and comics just for convenience. Also as I mentioned before an ‘expert’ mode of sorts would be nice again, I fucking love your top pics but the option to minimize it would be nice since it’d allow me to digest all of the latest updates (both comics and drawings) and blog posts without having to scroll down.

  23. Okaeri Says:

    This new layout me gusta. I notice the top links in the http://blog.clone-army.org site changed positions and are now vertical because of the changes in the main page.

  24. couchfort Says:

    Okay, the front page looks a thousand times better now. The comments page still has a giant CLONE MANGA at the top. Maybe just the black bar and a “Home” button?

  25. couchfort Says:

    Missing buttons in blog comments pages to go back and forth between blog posts.

  26. couchfort Says:

    Maybe a more professional About page? One that makes you sound like less of an asshole? Maybe not an ugly flat black on grey?

    Obviously, as your fans, we are Legion. But if I wanna introduce someone to your work, their first impression should be you are a professional comic writer who does a range of stories from dark horror to over the top comedy, not that you’re an insecure animu fapping neckbeard who gets a little chub over every new date sim from Nippon.

    They figure that part out on their own after they’ve been suckered into our ranks.

    I love you, Dan.

  27. admin Says:

    Snax
    Good idea. Will do.

    Okaeri
    What browser and OS are you using? Are you on mobile or desktop?

    Couchfort
    Hm, noted — I’ll so something about each of these issues.

  28. TheEFAF Says:

    On my SGS3 phone the website’s just broken in concern to the header bar. Everything is miniscule at regular scale, but zooming in means the top links go off the screen where I can’t click, and the corner buttons for twitter etc just overwhelm everything. I usually can get nonmobile sites towork reasonably well but this is a literal clusterfuck.

    Also, don’t make your comics page open on to the subject of witches with only a tiny dropdown bar to tell people “heyyyy! I made/make other comics!”. Show them visually that you do multiple comics on that page. You assume people use front landing pages, while many webcomic readers actually bookmark the comic page and ignore the front page. Someone going straight to comics will quickly forget you ever did anything but what you show them first thing. Feel free to use site stats to prove you are an outlier, I don’t like that landing page anyway.

  29. TheEFAF Says:

    Also, now that I’m on a PC, scale your damn fonts down on the about and comics page. Making point sizes that big is “insulting” to the reader and looks clunky. They’re not trying to read it as they drive by on a car, the website is probably within 2.5 feet of their face. Letters that big are like saying “HEY I BET YOUR EYESIGHT IS BAD, OR MAYBE YOU’RE STUPID AND NEED LOTS OF BIG THINGS TO FIGURE SIMPLE STUFF OUT. I’M MAKING THIS REALLY BIG SO YOU CAN SEE IT. STUPID.”

    It’s not the solution if you want your website to read across PCs and phones.

  30. TheEFAF Says:

    And don’t change where the link bar goes – all pages except main page, it’s below the CLONE MANGA header.

    Consistency. Might also just be that you broke a code somewhere.

    The main page is a lot better now. Funny that you place latest drawings as more important than latest comics though.
    kk I’m done tripleposting.
    ps I do this for a living so.

  31. admin Says:

    No no, comments appreciated, especially from someone who does this for a living.

    – I’m going to make a comic landing page that showcases the other comics.
    – Re: mobile brokenness: I’ll have to do something about this — maybe actually make a specific mobile site if I can’t get things to collapse nicely.
    – Yeah, the about page needs work, it’s not updated to the new format yet…

    I’ll try and address the other points, too. Hrm, hrm.

    As for drawings being above the comics — I just assume they’ll be updated more often. : (

  32. admin Says:

    btw, is there some good online tool to check how sites look on mobile? I’ve just been resizing my window since I don’t own a mobile phone — not sure if that’s a reasonable way to test for mobile devices… : <

  33. Aristagon Says:

    maybe becouse I use a widescreen, but the title image looks a bit weird stretched on 100% width

    Also I like your New approach and updated version much better now.

  34. TheEFAF Says:

    If you want anyone that isn’t a regular to learn how to post comments on your updates, you’re going to have to help them out past the number in the corner. Make the titles clickable. I’d recommend putting “34 Comments” instead of just a number but comments on your updates are just about the least important thing on the whole site so it’s not that big a deal.

  35. Aristagon Says:

    I wish I could pay one of you two, to create a website for me. But obviously everything I could offer for payment would be an insult…

  36. Okaeri Says:

    I’m using mozilla firefox 22.0 on desktop.

  37. Okaeri Says:

    It looked like this http://i.imgur.com/WCd4Msm.png?1 but I just discovered that it’s thanks to the Adblock.

  38. Dan Says:

    Ahh, okay. Thanks for the screenshot. I think I know what’s happening, I’ll fix it.

  39. Dan Says:

    Actually, nope I have no idea why this is happening. Looks like the newest CSS wasn’t loaded — maybe it was a cache thing…? Does it happen again when you turn adblock back on?

  40. Okaeri Says:

    What you did worked. It’s displaying correctly now.

  41. admin Says:

    Okay, awesome. ;w;

  42. admin Says:

    Here’s the comic landing page in progress if any of ya want to check it out:

    http://manga.clone-army.org/viewer_landing_work.php

  43. Aristagon Says:

    On gallery and Library the dropdown menue is central, which makes sense and is easyto spot imidately, on comics its far left. And so a bit off position when I look on my widescreen (had to look around for 2 Seconds, which is already not intuitive in my mind)

    You should add graveyeard as the last category on Comics. The images are huge and I like that, but mostly becouse I have widescreen and see all active series align in one row, tested with smaller window and somehow fell that they might be too big for User with smaller screens.

    thats my 10Penny to the Progress.

  44. Aristagon Says:

    On my iPhone everything seems to look fine. Only Thing is that Events on the main side is bigger then Recent Drawings on the rightside, so the two underlines are Not matching

  45. admin Says:

    Re: drop down menu on comics

    Okay, will change

    Image size

    I’ll see if i can do some nice resizing on small screens

    underlines not aligning

    Could you clear your cache and take a screenshot? Thanks. ;w;
