Recommended Comics question

When I look at the "discover"/recommended comics, what determines the comics that get placed there? Is it just comics that people who like the same comics as me also favorited? I only ask because it seems pretty random- I just spent some time culling it and removing some I am not interested in (there are tons of Pokemon/other fandom fancomics in there which are really not something I read or seek out) and I was just wondering how it generates the comics that get placed there. I'm interested in reading something new but also am aware I am weirdly selective, so maybe other people's "discover" tabs are more accurate to them and/or more useful to them.

It's that, plus what used to be "Hot & Upcoming" mixed in.

Yeah I wondered about that - at some point it seemed I faved everything active AND relevant to my tastes so the section went "hey hey want to branch out into something new? how about BL?" and this is where I imagine a very inappropriate librarian lady and it's hilarious. :lol:

I have no idea how it works. I used to think it was random too or that it generates based on the user's past searches or what they tend to favourite. However, that doesn't seem to be the case.

It is a mix of a few things, including comics similar to the ones you've already favorited determined solely by the favorites of other users with similar tastes to you. Eventually I want to add in some suggestions based on tags into the mix. But yeah, if you've already favorited virtually all the comics on the site you might be interested in, well, by definition there wouldn't be anything relevant left to recommend until something new comes along.
