It has been over a week since I last posted an update to the site. Which for me is a pretty long time. I do not want you to think I have been slacking on the amount of work I have been putting into We Draw Comics. There is a good reason for the lack of updates this week.
One of the biggest pieces of feedback I have been getting is that the activity feed on the dashboard is a little confusing. It is overly repetitive in displaying when books you follow are updated. It is hard to keep track of important things, such as when someone ‘likes’ your panel or leaves a comment.
The dashboard is also an extremely slow page to load because if performs some really strenuous database queries.
I have spent the past week completely gutting and overhauling the Activity Feed on the dashboard. Hopefully the end result will be an easier to navigate activity feed with updates that are more relevant. I am also changing my entire approach on the backend so that the dashboard will load much faster and be optimized.
I have put a lot of work into it this week, but it still needs a little bit more polish before I am ready to send it out into the wild.
So stay tuned.
As always, thanks for drawing comics and thank you so much for your feedback and awesome emails. You guys are the best!
