OFFICE HOURS: Ask DC Universe Your Questions Every (UPDATED) TUESDAY Night!

,

Yes. You will see @Reaganfan78’s response before you see this and they nailed it on the head. You have to hit the arrow back button on every single comic you just read to get back home.

Batman Year One is one of my favorite things of all time (if you couldn’t figure from my username). I was lucky to have both sign my Absolute Edition!

Well, the category has seemingly calmed down over the last few days, but recently, there has been a trend of multiple identical topics going on at the same time. And then, of course, there’s the “I’m leaving the service” rants showing up in the various subcategories of Everything DC, sometimes even spilling into and derailing completely unrelated threads.

I realize that the category with the most traffic is inevitably going to be the one with the worst behavior by “one and done” commenters, but it appeared to be getting especially bad lately, and I don’t want all of our club discussions getting buried under nonsense.

Ah, yeah, that one is tricky. Our comics load in “packets”; I forget how many issues are in a packet - and I think it’s different per platform - but to prevent overload/slow performance, it’s built to only load one packet at a time. That doesn’t mean it’s not a pain point that should be solved, but that’s the logic behind it. Honestly, that’s the motivation behind so many different search/sort filters, to try to make it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for.

But if your experience is any indication (or my experience scrolling through Netflix), sometimes it’s just nice to BROWSE ALL. I’m actually pretty disappointed Netflix doesn’t just have an A-Z option so I can basically get my entertainment just looking at movie and show thumbnails. What I’m trying to say is, I relate to what you’re saying.

Oh actually, I think I misunderstood, but with both your explanations combined that helps.

It bears repeating, do make sure you take advantage of the opportunity to speak directly with the comic book leader in next week’s Q&A! The impact of seeing comments directly in real-time can’t be underestimated.

:frowning: I don’t see it, I’m sorry!! Did you send it to the @moderators, or an individual account? If you sent it to an account like @DC_Community, we won’t see it.

That is a FEAT- hauling around an already precious Absolute to a signing is a singularly stressful experience!

It was super stressed. Both were absolutely kind and talked for about ten minutes each.

Ah, jes, jes, we have had to adapt to the big influx of members since the Q-tine. We do try to re-categorize as quickly as we can. I’m noodling on a small video, or series of graphics that a member will see when first visiting the community to improve traffic control. Our work is never done! (Thank goodness.)

But if “Fan Discussions” as a sub-category were transported to Everything DC, would you still feel buried? I have this hunch it will increase engagement for y’all, but maybe that’s not the point for the clubs; maybe it’s better if they’re discovered by people who really want it/work for it.

You got that right. :heart_eyes:

I’m at the end of the line! I’ll linger for a moment, maybe refresh my cuppa :slight_smile: But look at this nice, normal time!

NP! Did that help with the timestamp? Or is it still MIA?

I would think so, yes. When someone clicks on the category, they’re brought to the unsorted stream of threads, and they’re very unlikely to see any of our topics at any given time. When someone clicks on Community Events, they immediately see a calendar.

Now, there does need to be more synergy between the topics in order to draw people from General Discussion to Community Events. For instance, I just posted a link to a club discussion of Batman: The Cult in response to a new General Discussion thread discussing the story.

(That gets into a pet peeve of mine. I’m a stickler for never creating a discussion thread unless I’m sure it doesn’t already exist.)

Hmmm…maybe we didn’t do this right.

I’m all set! A little worried about my lack of perception, but otherwise good! Ty!
