  1. Use J and K keys to go to next and previous page

    Many web sites are standardizing on using the J and K keys for navigation. Comic Rocket should adopt this standard for next/previous page navigation. J=next, K=previous. This avoids overriding the left and right arrow keys, which are sometimes necessary for horizontal scrolling.

    • Sluggy Freelance is borked.

      The website mentions that they're undergoing an archive glitch that causes it sometimes display the wrong page when you hit the next button. However, when using the site normally, that can be fixed by hitting the "refresh" button. When using this site, it skips ahead three years and stays that way. Refreshing doesn't help. I imagine that something happened when Comic Rocket was viewing the page for the first time, and then that glitch was preserved by the program.

      • Penny Arcade Feed is broken

        Feed hasn't been updated since 12/28/2015 and there have definitely been updates to the comic since then.

        • let us see all readers of a comic.

          Is there a way to view all the readers of a comic instead of just the first five? I'd like to see how many people follow a comic and be able to click through them to see what else they follow.

          • Provide support for right-to-left comics.

            One comic in particular, Carciphona, is structured so that not only is reading from right to left, but the links for "next page" and "previous page" are switched, with next on the left and previous on the right. Perhaps add radio buttons for "left-to-right" and "right-to-left" on the edit page?

            • improve "More like this" to not include serials you have followed.

              Because many of the serials I read are similar, most of the "More like this" is useless. I prefer to use more like this than recommended because it seems more accurate.

              • not use the date added as the initial 'last update' date.

                Knowing when the last update was is helpful for things like checking if the comic is still alive. That helpfulness is undermined if the 'last update' date can actually be when the comic was added to the system. Instead of using the add date, it would be preferable to either use a special value (and just not display 'last update') or to prompt the user to enter the date of last update.

                • Provide a dynamic Comic Rocket badge for creators to put on their websites

                  I would love a badge, say 160px in width, that I could put in the sidebar of my site, so readers know the Comic Rocket profile of my comic exists and they can add it to their reader. If the badge displayed number of followers and had bookmark functionality, even better.

                  • Should start a comic about the wacky adventures that happen at Comic Rocket.

                    Seriously. Announcing bugfixes in comic form would be the best thing ever. :)

                      Right now, the comics I've started blend in with my bookmarked comics that I've just added because I want to try them later.

                      • Navigate to a specific page.

                        Ive read some of these comic before. 1 ive been to about 1000 pages in. Currently its impossible to press the right arrow a few hundred times as it will time out and not work. I have to load every page one by one until I get to the one I want. For example Questionable Content has over 2k pages. Also I tend to hit the Last Page button to often and have to start over! Please add a Go To page feature where we can manually enter in a page number. Thank you!

                          If i am using the RSS feed to read a comic a day, but i feel like binging on a series, I have to manually update the RSS feed as well as mark my new place in the serial. This should be one in the same act. Also, the progress bar on "My comics"should match to the RSS feed.nn

                            • Integrate Archive Binge with the comic marker

                              Newcomer here from Archive Binge, so I may be misunderstanding how Comic Rocket works, and this may sound silly.

                              It might help us newbies transition to the Comic Rocket way of life if the pages we visit via the RSS feed were marked in the same way they are when we use the Comic Rocket navigation bar to work through a comic's archive.

                              Thanks to the RSS feeds, I've gotten several pages of comics under my belt, but the marker on the main page for my comic still says I'm way behind.

                              • Register comic progression if I use the nav buttons on comic's native page

                                I dislike moving back to the top of every page to advance the comic, and honestly, I'm just used to navigating the comic through the links the comic provides. It's very annoying when I advance through a few pages only to discover that Comic rocket thinks I'm still behind.

                                The system already identifies what the next entry in a comic is. How hard can it be to recognize when I have tried advancing a page already?

                                  The only comic I am experiencing this with until now is "menage a 3". At every startup of the comic there is a pop up which reads "It's time to clean up" or something similar. It is not possible to close that message without opening the webpage of the ad, which opens up the browser. The only available answer button on the ad in a "OK" button. But even if you hit "back" or click on another spot on the page, the ad opens up. It really is quite annoying, though I'm not sure what could be done about this.

                                  • Never Have Broken Serials

                                    The worst thing about comic rocket is that your comic could be broken.

                                    Let me ask you (from user perspective) why my comic subscription could be broken? Certainly the original comic is not broken, except when their website is down or having technical problem (which is rarely happen).

                                    What puzzles me is why could my serial be broken? Can the serialist just follow from the last recorded page and try to find new page from there?

                                    I suggest you fix the serialist. My idea instead using just two urls, you use three urls as starting comic pages so the serialist…

                                      • Build Archive Binge into the site

                                        I still love the Archive Binge RSS feed feature. But as I start to learn more about the Comic Rocket site itself, I think it would be neat to get my daily dose of comic backlog directly from this site, without having to go to my RSS reader.

                                        Of course, one can do this simply by using some self-control when clicking the Next button. But if we had that, we wouldn't need the Archive Binge feature. (:

                                        I don't know what this feature would look like or how it would work. Perhaps the Next arrow could have a little number…

                                        • add an option to either (a) remove duplicate strips, or (b) set an endpoint

                                          chainsawsuit LABS is a strip that absorbed a former strip name F Chords. The strip is in the system twice, just with different starting points (one from the very start, one from the point where the strip changed names to its current name from F Chords). There's no easy way to remove the duplicate entry from the system. So either add that, or add an option to set an endpoint for a strip so that they can be differentiated.
