New super SLIM LEADERBOARD AD!
Comicad now offers a super slim ad, a slim version of the popular "leaderboard" format.
This ad is particularly good for placing on the header or on the footer of your website.
It doesn't take much vertical space, yet, it wont fail to capture your visitors attention. You may choose up to 2 slots, making it a two ad leaderboard!
To pick it, use the "More ad sizes" button of the ad creation page.
Search issues fixed
Search had a little bug for the genre, sub-genre and popularity inputs, it's now fixed.
Some search urls are different now, please update any existing bookmarks.
Complementary Information and bug fixes
Users can now see complementary information when hovering over certain areas. See the image below for reference.
Also, a bug was solved for search list's quick buttons.
New Favorites List, Blacklist & Quick Links Bar
You can now add your favorites sites/comics to your own favorites list! Just click the bookmark icon next a site that you'd like to fave. You can access your favorites list by going to the search page. You can also black list a site to exclude it from the search results (keep in mind that B-Listing a site does not ban ads from or bidding on those sites).
And we're not done yet! Say hello to the QUICK LINKS BAR! You can expand the quick links bar with one click and click it again to hide it away. The quick links include your user balance, daily bid and max amounts, plus links to your ads, bids, and exchange lists! You can also sort/arrange by your favorite sites/comics in your bids list.
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.
UPDATE - Transition Period for new Bids System Beta

New - Featured Comics & Top Publishers
New homepage update incoming! Say hello to Featured Comics and Top Publisher Comics!

TOP PUBLISHERS is a section right beneath the featured comics where we display the top publishers on comicad.net for the day! Top publishers are always shuffling, so you'll often see a new one shown with every visit.

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.
