I hope you guys give some long thought to including advertising with the paid version. Technically it would make CCL adware & you could miss out on some positive recommendations because of that. Yes the ads load pretty quickly but you also have cookies being added that transfer data with every new page. I can take the time to add all these cookies to my block list but most people won't bother.

As for the $, you're only losing 1 unique page viewer with each subscription, 100 subscriptions would add $3k to revenue but would only affect page views by a small fraction.

I don't have access to all the stats & revenue numbers so it's hard to make an educated analysis here, I just hope you consider your stance on this carefully.


Understood and duly noted.

Will there be any site improvements or complete redesigns made to the forums? The forum searching is barely functional beyond the last few weeks and the interface is very dated.

Good question, and thanks for posting.

It's not even going to be a comparison. There will be updated forums, news and reviews and a MUCH smoother store experience. The first two are the easy part, with the latter being a little more tedious. The redesign will also be VERY important to our additional projects (CENSORED) and (CENSORED), which go really side by side with CCL. For programmers out there, DOT NET NUKE is what Joe wants to use for the redesign of the site, but please don't ask any specific questions about DNN because I am a simpleton when it comes to programming. lol

As for the functionality of the forums, I have not experienced any problems navigating through the forums. I've also had no messages in this regards either. If anything, the site's speed as up thanks to the upgrade to new a new hosting company which was implemented at the end of last year. The interface IS dated and you'll get no argument from me there. This is why I pushed for a complete facelift rather than a tuck here or there. CCL just LOOKS the same way it did when it launched, and if my car looked the same way, I'd want to trade it in too. lol

That is a good point. I wish the search function would go beyond 90 days. There's been times where I wanted to search for an old thread, but it didn't work because of the 90 days thing.

OH, is that what you meant? My apologies. I can request that those topics stay around longer if you guys think that would be a benefit.

OK, I'll start!

Now I am really excited for the new look! Steve, thanks very much for listening to us and giving out more information. I know that it is going to take some time but I believe that in the end CCL will be better than most (if not all) of the other comic buying sites out there. The future looks bright...Cool !

Maybe I'm mistaken but most (if not all) of the forums I've searched have no date limit on the searching capabilities. Any way to implement that here in the new redesign?

With this site, I put something simple like Superman in the search and I get a timeout message. I know there are probably tens of thousands of references to Superman but shouldn't that not matter?

As for the library searching, will there be any redesigns to that? My specific issue with the library search was talked about in THIS POST but never addressed.

Hmmmm. That I wasn't aware of happening...? I will definitely be looking at that.

Thanks for the reply,

I also have another question will the new have better options for other products? ie: magic the gathering, toys, memrobilia(comic related), souveniers(comic related), etc etc?

Reason I ask is I sell thousands of cards a month, do sell some comics but not enough to be noteworthy.

CCL will still give sellers the ability to sell any item that is included in the CCLdb. That being said, there is a good chance that some items might graduate into their own site and system. An extremely good chance.

Will the new site(s) have an useful (I.e. searchable) Guidelines section? Instead of the horribly narrow clunky version that we currently have?

Maybe have links in the CR system that can pop up specific sections of the Guidelines to help guide submitters and make submitting CR's easier?

I was wondering that as well. Owners must expect to recoup money somehow so curios how.

The best way to get your PMs answered is to send them to someone who will answer them. I don't mean that to sound smart-ass. If there's anything I can help with just drop me a message. I always answer every Pm every time.



The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

Hopefully not by much if at all, it's when they started charging $ that people started leaving. There's a danger in trying to recoup $ too fast, can choke off growth before it ever gets started, hoping they start off cheap & rebuild the customer base.
