INTRODUCING FLEX BIDS!

FLEXIBLE BIDS - BID SYSTEM UPDATE!

A Flex Bid, (flexible bid) is a normal bid that represents the maximum value willing to pay for an ad space in a 24h period. The amount that will be paid is based on the next competitor's bid value (next in line bid), and can automatically adjust to lower or increase, up to your maximum bid amount. Neat!

How do you place a flex bid?
A flex bid is essentially just a normal bid. You place your bid like usual, and the amount that you bid is the maximum value you are willing to pay. That's it. Our system does the rest. Flex bids automatically adjust so that users get the best value for their bid.

You can see the amount you are currently going to pay in green under the flex bid in the bids section. Here is a visual example:



You can still adjust your bid like normal, and raise when outbid. For more information on flex bids, or bidding in general, please visit our FAQ section.

INCOMING BID SYSTEM UPDATE

For a period of time we will be experimenting with a flexible bidding system that automatically adjusts to pay the minimum needed to win (currently a user needs to adjust the bids manually), and that never exceeds the user's maximum bid value. During this time we will be monitoring for any issues and taking feedback. The beta period for this new bid system will begin on Feb 1st, 2021. End date has yet to be determined.

Note: There will be a small transition period as we roll out the update over the course of the week. More information will become available soon.

Auto bid/exch. buttons are now known as Quick bid/exch. buttons

"Auto" is kind of an unfortunate designation for the buttons which allow quick bidding, so, they're now known as quick buttons.
Note: A quick button does exactly what comic profile forms do, it just does it faster.

Rebid button bug fixed

There was a problem with rebid button and mature ads, it's now fixed.
Additional note from last update: Search by rating now searches both rating and acceptance (before it only searched the rating).

New update to ratings

Now it's possible to use the "Mature" rating (Mild Nudity/Violence/Gore/Language) to rate ads and set publisher site's accepted ads.
From now on, all publisher sites are forced to accept ads of its own rating (it doesn't make much sense otherwise).
We ask users to review their sites and ads in order to set the Mature rating accordingly.
It's possible to raise ad ratings from All Ages -> Mature -> Adult (R18+), to lower the rating, you must contact an administrator with the reason for the change.

New adjust button for live bids

A new button has been introduced to adjust live bids value, without the need to cancel/rebid.
The button icon also works as a tag to distinguish bids that are paying above the needed to win from the ones that aren't.

Please note that currently Comicad Network uses a static bid system. Please see FAQ for more information. For that same reason, the adjust button is being introduced.

Please consult the legend of your account bid list page for more information about the new adjust button.

  • Removed redundant "No notifications" welcome popup.
  • Min. bid value is now auto filled when creating a bid unit.
  • Your ads/sites input is now auto selected on comic profiles when there's only one option.
