I just worry it might hurt newer comics in favor of comics that are already popular.
Looks designed for non-members, put the "most likely very pretty" comics at the top to get new users to browse around, even though for members I suspect the more new-comic-focused sections would probably be more interesting.
Could be remedied by letting people chose their ordering, but I suspect that would be a lot of work. Easy to forget SJ is one person's work.
Edit: More nitpicks!
- "X Updates/Month" and "X Updates/Week" doesn't immediately read among all the "Updates Wednesdays", etc. I think having "month" and "week" lowercase would make it more readable. In other words, don't title-case it! The weekdays should be capitalised because they're weekdays and because it helps visually distinguish them.
- "Hand-picked, local, organic, grass-fed comics." is only funny the first time around, and doesn't convey anything useful about what the Comic Spotlight is and how to be featured.
- The spotlight reel seems to be very slow at resizing to fit the window, leading to lengthy looks at the neighbouring spotlight banners while resizing. It feels rather unprofessional, as if I found a way to break the site, even though it's only cosmetic.
- There's a "Rising Stars" comic on the front page with 1 reader and a fair bit of pages. Either the algorithm for that is broken, or it's just suffering from not enough newer comics having covers uploaded. Also, "Rising Stars" makes it sound like the comics are getting a lot of attention ("Stars") when clearly most of these aren't. So, either there should be a minimum of attention for a comic to qualify (bad idea since the point is to feature underdogs I guess? I don't even understand the point of that section tbh), or the category should get a less misleading name.
