Further Update
Sam Posted on 2015-11-25 at 10:44 am EST
The front page is now working, in such that the menu is there and news is there. Still need to fix the comic lists and avatars, but at least the front page displays the news again.

Sam Posted on 2015-11-24 at 4:03 pm EST
All comics should be good, save for one that I know isn't working and I'll fix a little later. If yours isn't, let me know.

So far I haven't found any extra executable files either. I will still have to go through the existing ones to be sure that nothing funny is going on in them, but we're getting close to a "clean" version of everything. I will also have to remove the purged comics from the database, but that's later.

Purge Done & Ooops :)
Sam Posted on 2015-11-22 at 9:40 pm EST
Ok, so the purge is done, but it deleted subdirectories of comics that it shouldn't have, so I'm copying those over now. If you need yours up sooner rather than later, PM me the name of it and I will do it before others. There's only 250 ish of them to do, so it shouldn't take too long though I may leave some for tomorrow.

Edit: 7 Eldest to atritasworld are done.

Edit 2: Done to bhwb. Starting birthday to corndogsaregood now. I expect I may get through another 25-50 tonight. There are 250ish comics to do, so up to the first 100 or so will be done tonight. The rest I'll try to do throughout the day tomorrow. (I'll be at work so can't sit and watch the files transfer, I have to check back every so often)

Again, if you need your comic up earlier, and it's late in the list alphabetically, PM me and I'll do it ahead of schedule.

Edit 3: Started the next batch now which goes up to hsma. Will start the next batch in the morning and go from there. Should be able to have them all done by the end of the day tomorrow. Maybe even by the end of the morning.

The Purge
Sam Posted on 2015-11-22 at 7:25 pm EST
It's coming in the next day or so. Possibly tonight. If your comic disappears I have a copy as of last night, so let me know asap and I'll restore it.

The criteria to keep a comic safe will be:

1) If your comic has 100+ pages or
2) You have updated your comic within the last year or
3) You have posted 100+ posts on the forum or
4) You have been singled out as someone we just plain like

Then your comic will stay. All others are to be removed. This brings the list to 246 comics, about 1000 to be deleted, which means there are about 200 more non-comic directories that also need to be cleared. I think that this is a good criteria. If your comic is big, relatively recent, or you're part of the family in some way (you've been active or we just like you) then it stays. Otherwise the comic is small, hasn't been updated in quite some time and you never really took part in the community.

Front page hacked

The front page has been hacked. I've removed everything in it, so you won't see anything on the front page. I'll try to restore it later today.

Development commences once again
Sam Posted on 2015-11-06 at 1:54 pm EST
I've gotten a good windows web server. I've gotten a good laptop. I'm now working on a home-brew version 2 of Comic Dish again. You can get to the test site at .

Expect it to be buggy, and broken, and things appearing and disappearing all the time. It's already got more in it than my attempt with angular did, though, so things are looking up once more.

Some web server problems
Sam Posted on 2015-09-13 at 1:52 pm EST
So the server has been having some issues with the web server, not sure why. I've set the web server to reset after every 30 minutes so if I'm asleep it won't stay down longer than that.

Forum Update
Sam Posted on 2015-02-26 at 10:26 am EST
I'll be updating the forum this weekend. I'm going to shoot for saturday morning. While it's updating, which shouldn't take long, it will be out of service. So if you come by saturday morning and the forum's not working, don't fret. It's just getting an upgrade :)
