First of all, I want to stress this is a systemic issue, nothing to do with anybody in particular…
I’ve been getting a lot of Synchronicity submissions lately. A lot. And since they’re by far the most time-consuming submissions, I just can’t keep up and most of them sit unread for far too long, which isn’t fair to everybody sending them in.
So… I’m not going to ask people not to send them anymore, merely to confine them to the truly extraordinary: same-day similarities that defy logic.
It remains open season for everything else, and I thank you for all your support.
Moving this back to the top because I just found a response from Jimmy Johnson his own self languishing in the Spam folder for a full week.
Comments going to Moderation for no good reason is common enough that I check the folder several times a day. I put on my Hazmat suit and venture into the Spam folder, well, once a week at most.
… but less than ten minutes after the Crimeweek site went live last week, there were already two spam comments.
The spammers are good, gotta give them that: fortunately, the spam filter is better.
CIDUs, LOLs, whatever… Please add “Christmas” to the e-mail’s subject line. I’m way behind on my e-mail and this is likely to get worse over the next couple of weeks, so the notation will assure that I see the Christmas-related stuff before it becomes outdated.
Over the past couple of weeks, this site has gotten a surge of new visitors. Reading the FAQ is not mandatory, but is recommended.
CIDU has been around since 1996, but unfortunately GoDaddy managed to destroy it earlier this year so you’ll only find archives going back to January.
Despite the fact that “godaddyandthesquirrelmustbothdie.wordpress.com” is probably appearing in your browser’s address bar, you can always access the site using the slightly-less-cumbersome “comicsidontunderstand.com.”
This past week saw CIDU’s highest weekly traffic ever, including the week of this year’s 24-Hour Project (though that was the busiest single day).
Well, not exactly lost, but I will be home late, and therefore Sunday’s LOL page will be posted late.
Please entertain one another until I get back.
We’re approching the 10,000th comment since the site resurrected in January.
A lot of them were even related to the day’s comic!
(This number does not, of course, include spam or otherwise deleted comments: just what’s actually on the site)
If you send me something for the LOL page, or any of the others, please mention the screen name you use here (or if you don’t want your name posted at all, let me know that as well).
You would think after all these years I’d be able to remember what screen name goes with what real-world name, especially when some of you have sent me countless comics, but you’d be wrong. I am just really, really bad with names. Always have been.
Yet if you ask me the secret identities of obscure 1940s super heroes, I will astound you. Go figure.
