Weird question I know, it obviously still EXISTS. And it does seem like some new stuff gets put in there. But something still eludes me.

I usually lurk the forums and sometimes I'll go into the Comic Spotlight suggestions to see if anything I like got nominated and throw in my 'yay' for it to be spotlit. But I noticed a TON of things suggested there just...never show up. And then comics that I've never even seen a suggestion for in the forums is then suddenly seen in the spotlight section out of nowhere. Hell, very rarely will I ever seen see the admin comment on the suggestions in Comic Spotlight, much less anyone else.

So...are the Comic Spotlight suggestions part of the forums just...dead? Is it even looked at anymore? It just seems like some ghost is what determines what goes into Comic Spotlight, not things actually suggested and maybe even 'backed' by fans.

I have some suggestions for how maybe a better way of doing Comic spotlights can go, but I'll put that in a different thread. For now I just wanna know what's going on.

Admin Classic never was much of a commenter xP
Many of the comics nominated wouldn't get spotlit even in the old days, for various reasons. But, I do agree the forums seem to have become less relevant to the process recently, in part because they Spotlight comics more frequently now, and the suggestions forum is very slow.

Since the NHN acquisition, I think NHN people have been in charge of the Spotlight rather than Admin Classic and they don't seem to use the forum as much. I imagine they're still transitioning and figuring things out, it's possible their community manager(s) is/are focused on Twitter and aren't used to forums. Things suggested there since the acquisition have been Spotlit I believe, but it seems they find comics mainly via manual browsing and Twitter now. Hopefully they'll use the forum more in the future.

I think the best way to nudge them towards the forum would be to @SmackJeeves on Twitter ;D
