With the launch of ToP, it’s a good time to announce a couple of other stuff I’ve been doing for the ToPComics.
First off, for comments and feedback, I’ve created a Facebook page and forum, the latter being an app of the former. I’m too cheap to pay for an actual forum. (and it’s very likely no one will actually use it) Since almost everyone has a Facebook account, there’s no need for registering for another new forum. So it won’t hurt to test the app out. After all, it’s free and I don’t really lose anything from it, I think.
The second is a mobile version of the website. I am basically re-editing the pages for mobile purposes because when the original page gets too small the text will be impossible to read. (Unless you like scrolling vertically AND horizontally. Now, ideally, the comic should be read in its original format because the panel layout doesn’t lend itself well to a mobile format, and because of the reediting, a lot of the impact will be lost. (and I will likely be cutting out a panel or two to cut the size down)
Sure, it’s extra work, but I did notice that a a fair chunk of people visiting the website uses 480px wide resolutions, so I’d like to make reading convenient for them. No harm in trying and if it doesn’t do well I’ll just drop it. I have no idea how well it looks on tiny screens as the only mobiles I have in my household are ipads and Samsungs. So some feedback on how to improve it will be nice.
