I was asked what the schedule is for updating the bonus archive… The answer is “whenever I get around to it.” And I got around to it! The bonus archive now has all the voting bonuses in it except the sprite strip in which Linton meets someone who claims to be responsible for the station’s problems. (That one you can see if you vote for Station V3 at TopWebcomics today!)
Archive for the ‘site update’ Category
The Bonus Archive has been updated – all the bonus strips, bad translations, sprite strips, alternate versions, Rumormonger Idol contestants, etc. that have gone up as voting bonuses for the past year and a half are there now. So if you’re a new reader here, there’s some stuff you haven’t seen – and if you’re not, there’s some stuff you probably haven’t seen in a while!
In yesterday’s strip (3/20), a rumormonger added two and two to get 4,376. I had considered several other numbers – like 22, for example – before deciding on a number that included the answer and the phone exchange of somewhere I used to live. Coincidentally, as pointed out by a reader, the asteroid 4376 Shigemori was discovered on 3/20/1987 – 22 years ago. Maybe I meant to do that?
And in other non-Station V3 webcomic news:
Robert Cook’s comic The Mansion of E recently hit the 2,000 strip mark. Congratulations, Robert!
While there haven’t been any new episodes of PodWarp 1999 uploaded since January, it’s not dead yet! There are more episodes on the way. If you have any suggestions for a future episode, you can post them on the PodWarp forum. Meanwhile, Mark Mekkes and I were among the people on the latest live episode of The Gigcast.
I’ve finished with most of the site layout changes (as you’ve probably noticed!) and added a few new features to the site. There’s a comment system, so you can post comments on strips, and strip transcriptions from Oh No Robot are also included in the archives – at least for the 1500+ strips that currently have them!
As far as I can tell, I’ve put the new layout on pretty much all the pages on the site – including some that hadn’t even been updated with the previous layout change! But if I’ve missed any, or you notice anything that doesn’t look right, please let me know.
Over the weekend I made a few tweaks to the site layout for Z7, Ebb’s Children, and Silence in the Darkness on Q16 – mostly so the layout will still look right if your screen resolution is higher than 1024×768! As far as I can tell, it looks right on all the browsers I’ve checked, but if you see any problems, let me know. I’ll be making some similar changes (and more) here soon!
