Soooooooooo…. Since Blizzard is apparently against my desire to waste a perfectly good evening on their online thing, I figured I’d finally do the newspost I’ve been meaning to do for a day or two now.
First off, thanks to everyone who emailed me with comments, suggestions and problems. Most of you had really good points and were really nice. As you can see, we took care of the speed problem 48 hours ago and the site is still going strong since then. Now, a couple of things I’ve seen a lot in the emails you guys sent me:
- Search function in the comic archive: This function is going to be back this week. I know a lot of you really want it bad. We never actually planned to remove it.
- Messed up header in Firefox: Now, I’ve looked at the site using Firefox 1.0.7 and I never have that problem. This being said, it’s important to realize that if you use software or extensions that modify the website (i.e. ad blockers), you’re pretty much out of luck on that one.
Ctrl+Alt+Del is able to continue running in large part due to our
advertising revenue. Our ads are carefully selected, and are
non-intrusive. They don’t pop-up, they don’t flash annoyingly, and they
are always relevant to our demographic. There’s a way to disable blocking for specific sites and if you want your problem fixed, you’ll have to use it.
- XHTML/CSS compatibility: OK… so some of you have webdesign skills, hate tables and consider them the new evil, just after violent video games. That’s cool. You can stop emailing me about it now. I got your point.
Like I said in my first news post, we’re going to make this site up to the latest standards, shortly. Until then, you’ll be forced to notice that the site works perfectly fine and it’s pretty darn fast too. Sure, it’s not perfect but we’ll get there.
So again, if you see something that doesn’t seem right on the site and it’s not about the freaking tables/div drama (wink), please email it to me at pierre AT
ctrlaltdel-online.com and I’ll take a look at it.
Oh and while I have your attention, I’m still looking one of those Blizzcon baby murloc pet codes. If you have one and don’t mind getting rid of it, I would very much like it :D.
