Jackarais:The timing could very well be a coincidence, Abby Normal put up a similar post a few days ago for the same reasons.
Only brought up Abby because you did initially, and hey, knowing they updated before the changes I have no issue with it. Abby's totally clear, and, again, it seems like we're getting a genuine reboot which is awesome, and I'm looking forward to it.
The popular overall tab matters because it's pretty much the first thing new readers click on when they visit the site. Being on the front page is a MASSIVE advertising boon, and also acts as the face of the website for readers looking to join. Having something dead in first place looks bad and deters people from reading, or checking out the rest of the site. This isn't just me bullshitting, it's something I've had blatantly explained to me by people who saw this site once and never came back.
And honestly it would just be nice to see a more reflective work at what's actually overall popular? I'll probably surprise nobody by admitting I don't get along with Cent, and I'm [personally not a fan of her comic, but if we were working with a fair system she should honestly be on the front page. She's consistently had one of the most actively read, actively updating comics on the site, and has an active fanbase that's been consistent, and relatively huge. She deserves a spot there, and the fact that Datachasers, and other legitimately well loved comics like it are getting pushed aside is unfair to readers and creators alike.
I couldn't care less who ends up on the front page, I'd just like the system to be fair, and for the site to be able to put it's best foot forward so as to be able to draw as many readers as it can.
