    • Clicking on the + button should not take you to the comic

      When you are surfing through the comics looking to add them to your "my comics" list you should be able to click on the "+" button to add them without being taken to the first page of the comic - more often than not there's more than one comic on that list you're trying to add.

      • Tag every comic with a status of (1) completed, (2) updating, and (3) hiatus

        Its helpful to know what the status of a comic is when deciding to read -- is it done or actively being updated or is in deep hibernation and unfinished?

        • let me group the serials on my user page

          So I can group the serials I like to read first at the top, ones I want to start reading but haven't yet later, or any other kind of grouping I want.

          • provide a way to show a comic's alt-text or title in the android app.

            Many comics - like XKCD, Dr McNinja, Shortpacked, Dinosaur Comics, etc - have an additional joke or comment that appears when you hover over the image, either using the img tag's "title" or "alt" attributes. On most mobile browsers, there's no way to view this text, because there's no sense of mouse hover. I don't know how much control you have over the page rendering in the app, but if you could show that text by tapping or holding on images, that would be great.

            • add a feature to scan a comic manually

              The author of my favorite comic announces a new page on Twitter. I go to Comic Rocket, only to find that the new page has not been indexed yet. So I go to the comic's website and read the new page there, and when it later shows up on Comic Rocket, I just click through it.

              With this feature, I could instead hit a “rescan” button of some sort, wait until the comic has been scanned, and read the new page on Comic Rocket.

              • let me turn off "Selected Readers"

                I use Comic Rocket as my personal reader. I don't need to see that other people are reading the same thing. The pictures of random people I don't know and never will is just distracting and visually cluttered.

                • Improve page load speeds, so that comic pages load in under two seconds.

                  In my environment (Firefox 27.0.1 on Mac OS X 10.9.1) the initial request for http://www.comic-rocket.com/read/comic_name/issue_number?mark usually takes between 5 and 10 seconds. In one test, Firefox's network console reported:

                  DNS resolution: 0 ms
                  Connecting: 64 ms
                  Sending: 0 ms
                  Waiting: 7383 ms
                  Receiving: 1 ms

                  Is there any way this can be improved?

                  • Add a FAQ: "Why is my serial 'broken' and how can I fix it?"

                    At least one of my serials (Garfield Minus Garfield) seems perpetually in a broken state. It would be nice to have a FAQ explaining what this means, why it typically happens and what (if anything) I, as a reader, can do to fix the situation.

                    • Change the rating system from G-NC17 to [L]anguage [N]udity [V]iolence checkmark options.

                      The latter is much more descriptive and lets readers know what they're in for. As it is, some PG comics contain nudity without much language, and some R comics like SpaceTrawler have no nudity but comical violence and the occasional F-bomb. MPAA ratings aren't accurate at all.

                      In implementation, there should be the three LNV notifications with dropdowns next to them: with the options: "None", "Mild", and "Extreme"(add a + sign), so when you see a comic with "L+,N,V" you know exactly what you're in for.

                      • Do not automatically jump to the next page when opening the comic

                        When you click on a comic on the user page, the reader seems to automatically advance you to the next page after the bookmark. This may not always be desirable, in particular if the comic updates rarely and you need to get back into the story.

                        • Change sorting of "My Comics"

                          Many serials I like to read more than one page at a time, so I'd like the stuff with 10 unread pages to float to the top and the things that have only posted 1 new page to be at the bottom.

                          • Let us put covers on the comics

                            We know that, for questions of security, only the creators can allow a cover design. But many creators don't know or does not have interested in that subject.

                            My idea is that Comic Rocket allows us readers to put covers, that will be analised by your team or by us (reporting wrong covers). And, if the autor prefer to put his own work there, he will be free to do it even so.

                              So many authors and artists have had there comics listed on this website without them knowing. I think that it should be fair to claim back their comics within a reasonable amount of time after requesting. Please speed up the response process! A lot of us would like to utilise and help broaden our comics with this site, but can't because our claims haven't been confirmed yet.

                                    Oglaf is a very popular comic, but it is unusable on ComicRocket. The strips are not structured in a strict serial fashion. Every Sunday there is a new story. Sometimes the story is just one page. Sometimes the story is several pages. There are both next story and next page links on the site.

                                    To properly read Oglaf in a serial fashion you just click next page until there are no more next pages. Then click next story just once. Then click next page until there are no more pages. Repeat. It's a for loop inside another for loop. The…

                                      We were indexing Oglaf just fine until they changed how they display their “I am over 18” warning. (Frankly, I have fun just reading that warning every once in a while.)

                                      Unfortunately our crawler is only five years old and can’t click the “I am over 18” button, so it never finds any pages. I haven’t been able to get a response from the creators of Oglaf about this issue, so I’m at a bit of a loss. But obviously I’d like to fix it!

                                    • Add "Start reading this serial from the last known page"

                                      Yes, I know this is hard because you don't know the last known page when this is clicked for a new serial. Put a marker in in this case that starts the reader at the last known page once the serial has been successfully scanned once?

                                        We plan to provide both both “start from the beginning” and “start from the current page”. We have a different plan to handle new unscanned serials; we hope to scan them quickly enough that nobody other than the person who adds it notices, and we plan to show that person their recently created but unmarked serials.

                                        • Add a RSS feed of updates on "My comics"

                                          My idea is a simple RSS feed that would update individually for every user whenever one of their selected comics gets updated/scanned by the system as having updated. Something simple, maybe just showing the name and description of the comic, only to know if there has been an update or not when you open your RSS reader.
                                          It would be a simple system, as seen in other webcomic listing sites and some webcomic hosts.
