Sometimes, comics are pretty awesome

Two and three pages from ACTION COMICS 1 and 2 respectively...

(Don't think you can really post stuff from issue 2. Sigmund droid posted too much of the preview to let you post more than 1 and 2/3 page (since the standard page count is 20 now in each issue)

Ha I ruined it for everyone did I? I'll ask a mod to delete the other thread, whatever. If you don't want previews then get it posted in the rules.

I'm done posting anything here.

You could just post one page from the preview and link to it? It's less a rule but mostly just being courteous since anyone can read the preview online once linked to it. But posting all of it makes it harder for other to post from the issue. (Plus you posted 5 pages in your post which was a page more than you could for a new book anyway)

Here's my problem with that.

You have one member upload one scan with a link to where you can find three more scans. You have another member upload 3 scans.

You've just provided the community with close to half of the new comic. See where I'm going with this?

The system isn't perfect by any means but I'm guessing that's similarly why the community's changed from posting half the comic down to a third of a story for this reason (at least on prior versions of the comm that was the rule).

Not to mention the rules state "No more than 4 scans of a recent comic should be posted by any one user on this community. This prevents any one member from getting to control the discussion on popular comics. Once a comic is no longer classed as being “recent” single posters can post a full 7 pages from it.

I posted 4 scans in the other thread (now 3). The story is 20 pages, 1/3 of which is 6.6 (rounded up) is 7.

Well, yeah. That's why the rule are being followed now since you among other things had a two page one in your prior post, bumping your count up to 5 pages. And I should point out page counts are never rounded up. It's specifically 1/3 of the story or 6 and 2/3 pages for the 20 page comic (barring other story sizes of course).

Thus we're at 6 pages now and a person if they really wanted to could post 2/3 of a page.

I should point out you're not a mod. Whether it actually be true or not, nowhere in the rules does it say anything about rounding. You're interpreting this when this isn't your job.

I come to scans daily to post, read and comment on comics, not to defend what I posted to every member that decides its up to them to save the day against a "malevolent" break of ethos. It happens far too often on this site where members feel that they have to take it upon themselves to do a mods job.

You see some rule-breaking? Notify a mod. Don't stretch it out in two different posts when it isn't your duty.

No one mentioned your name though. It was just a throw-away reference! I wouldn't have even remember who she was talking about if you hadn't rushed in to defend yourself.

True, but I meant no harm, both posts are/were on the front page in spitting view of one another so it's not like it was a secret or anything.

My bad. I'm apparently dumb.

nowhere in the rules does it say anything about rounding.

Pro-tip: The fact that rounding isn't mentioned means that we don't do it. Ever.

And the experienced people will mention rule-breaking because we like this community, know the mods aren't on all of the time, and want problems to be fixed quickly so that they don't cause us problems.

Keep your pro-tips and patronizing to yourself. You're no professional.

If you like this community then let the mods do their job and instead join in the discussion on the material posted to foster the environment.

There's six mods, if there is need of more mods to handle the workload they'd like seek more volunteers.
