Premium Members can now opt to hide the text footer on their ad units
Premium Member subscribers on Comicad Network can now hide the footer text link on ad units. Instead, a small Comicad logo appears in the corner of the ad. This makes for a cleaner design if desired. Premium Members can find this new option via a checkbox in their individual ad unit settings (by clicking the edit button on ad units) in their "Sites Section."
For more info on how to become a Premium Member and its perks, please read the FAQ Section or by clicking the "Get One" link in your Subscription card within your user account landing page.
New Withdrawal options and Balance Flush
Users can now withdrawal funds (user balance) at lower thresholds. The new options include $5, $10, $15, and $20 as well as an option to flush your balance. We hope his offers a bit more flexibility when managing your Comicad account funds.
Please note: Account balances below $5.00 can only be withdrawn (balance flush) by de-activating the account. Account balances below $0.50 cannot be withdrawn (due to transaction fees).
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
We wish happy holidays to all our users and partners.
The default increments applied to the pay values on very high bids have been updated. The increment update mostly affects Fixed-Max (Mode) Campaigns, and was implemented to prevent ad units from being virtually locked (requiring a high value to be beaten while paying very little money to the publishers).
To learn more about increments please visit the FAQs section.
Campaigns are now out of beta. You will notice some QOL improvements.
The edition form BID LIMIT input has had a makeover. When editing your bid limit, the new “RE-SPREAD CAMPAIGN MODE” button offers you only 2 options to choose from. TO-WIN Raise Outbids & FIXED-MAX.
The TO-WIN option will raise outbids to the min. needed to win and make them live again up to the newly set bid limit value. This happens once per operation. Naturally, your campaign may get outbids. Simply re-spread your bid limit again to reclaim your outbids and win them back.
When re-spreading, the button issues warnings and confirmations for a better experience and time saving.
The FIXED-MAX option sets all campaign bids to the exact same (max. willing to pay) value, up to the new bid limit. All outbids will become live again, or beat others automatically, up to the new limit.
There have been more quality of life improvements as well, such as the creation form budget calculator.
Now it's also possible to re-spread the same bid limit.
Hints: Please note that campaigns will not spread outside of the initial generated list (when creating a campaign). Campaigns only spread to approved ad spaces that appear in the generated list. To maximize the spread of a campaign, choose all genres and ratings (only if desired). Or create multiple campaigns targeting specific areas of interest, that accomplish specific goals. Users can have up to 3 active campaigns at once.
Achievements Update! Diamond Badges can now be earned on Comicad Network!
Badges have been distributed into 12 categories. Each category has 4 special badges for the highest achievements: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond. Diamond badges are an elite level achievement which are very difficult to earn. Can you get them all?
The special badge breakdown is displayed on the right corner of the badge list heading, on public user profiles and account landing page.
In order to occupy less space on the user profiles, the badge list have been compacted, the full information is available on hover or on click (mobile).
Balance/payload headers are now default on all pages
These headers contain information about your account balance and payloads, they are present on various pages and listings. Some of these pages displayed payloads related to standalone or campaign bidding.
To avoid confusion and keep the reference uniform, totals are now displayed by default on all pages.
The breakdown of each part is displayed in an alert box on hover.
Feature an alternate url as your main url
Featured URLS swap roles with the site's main URL (the main is displayed as an alternate, and the alternate as main). Featuring allows URL swapping without actually changing the URL assignments.
You can set an Alt Url as your Main Url by using the "Feature as main URL" buttons present on the alternate URLs page of each site in your account site list. When enabled, you'll see the ALT URL as your MAIN URL across Comicad Network. Only 1 alt and main url can be swapped at a time per registered site.
Scheduled Maintenance from May 14th - 17th.
We'll be updating our services from (May 14th - 17th). The website will be unavailable for 5 minutes (and possibly up to a few hours in some cases). We apologize for the inconvenience.
