Comic List To Vote ( February 2018 )
How it works
Register your comic
Add your comic to the list to vote reciprocally (not needed when you register the 1st time)
Bookmark the provided url (http://www.votecomics.com/?mycode=x), if don't know this url, try looking on your browser's history
Always Visit the website using the bookmarked url!
You must confirm that you're logged in at TWC by clicking a link (asked once a day). Before confirming, you need to go check if you're logged in or not, and login if necessary, This became necessary since TWC captcha was upgraded.
Click the vote buttons (every time you click, the button becomes unavailable until the beginning of the next day (not necessarily 24h), the remaining time is displayed on the button itself, it's the same time displayed at TWC). A new window showing the TWC reward page will appear. As the button becomes unavailable, the banner starts linking to the manual vote in order to fix any non logged-in mistake. You can also perform "guest voting" (TWC Captcha) by clicking the links on the column next to the buttons. Consult "Guest Voting" below for more information.
Repeat steps 4 to 6 everyday until the month ends
You can also vote on the Extra list at any time
Who can vote?
Extra List - All Registered Users
Reciprocal List - All Registered Users Who joined the current month
Who can receive votes?
One-sided - All Registered Users
Reciprocal - All Registered Users Who joined the current month
Clicking the individual buttons method #1 (1 click + close TWC window per comic)
Clicking the individual buttons method #2 (1 click + let TWC window open + stay on the list for the remaining votes)
Handshake Buttons (Automated Voting)
Guest voting is a complementary voting method which allows users to perform manual voting through TWC's captcha system and that way get that extra vote allowed by TWC system.
Each comic has a number that refers the
received visits on the CAPTCHA page (Unique user visits), this number does not indicate real votes, not all visits may have ended with a vote. To vote simply click the number, you can also click on your own, note that guest voting redirects to
www.topwebcomics.com instead of topwebcomics.com Important: Only click the links if you really intend to vote manually for that comic, don't cheat! If you find too troublesome to vote on all, choose some to vote rather than cheat on all ;)
The comics that voted on your comic today and/or yesterday will appear with a dashed border circle, it helps you keep track of your "guest voting" buddies.
Guest voting is 100% optional.
Important: Note that Guest Voting is an alternative voting method, it's a simple counter that shows the received votes, the more elaborated statistics and the conditions to continue receiving votes are all related to the main voting method (the one-click vote buttons)
Who is listed in the Extra list by default?
Custom Admin submitted comics (Yet to be registered by the author)
Users who registered but didn't join their comic to the current month's list
Users who registered their comic during the start list period
What mean the Extra list sort options?
Sort by Custom Entries - Admin submitted entries listed on top
Sort by title - Sorted by comic title
Sort by Status - Lists in order: Joined (non joined users only); Non Joined; Unregistered
Handshake Button - Allows you to automatically vote for the pending handshake votes (votes yet to be returned by you) or simply initiate new votes
Custom List - Allows a creation of a custom list by clicking the attendance icons (On the reciprocal list, a reciprocal opt-out, disables the vote button on both sides)
How do I create a custom list?
While in "All Comics" Mode - Click the attendance icons (they'll turn white), then click "Show custom list"
While in "Custom List" Mode - Click the attendance icons (they'll turn white), then reload page
Add-on Comics are secondary comics added to the same account of your main comic. Add-on comics is a feature that allows the elimination of redundant votes from users with more than one comic.
Add-on Comics inherit parent's outbound votes, they still receive votes normally.
You may add add-on comics to the month's reciprocal list, but, to give them outbound votes, your main comic must be on the list as well

New Guest Voting Visits
The other comics
To vote reciprocally you need to submit a comic to the current month's list (Next month you don't need to submit again, only add to the month's list).
The vote buttons on the page are already a vote action, not a link to the TWC form (after voting, a new window opens with the "Thank you" page).
The list stores information about who voted and received votes, each comic has a ratio: Authors which voted a lot but received few votes are pushed to the top of the list, on the other hand those that received a lot of votes but voted few times are pushed to the end of the list.
The "Author's Last Vote" statistic helps keep track of those authors that gave up voting.
It also stores information for each month independently.
When a vote is performed the button becomes inactive until the next day (each button displays the remaining time).
User identification is made through a 10digit private code (used in the bookmarked url), no logins required.
"Test" button is a multi-purpose tool:
vote on your own comic; test TWC availability; test voting process. The attendance percentage is a ratio: days with votes vs the others (no votes/not joined)
The number after the percentage "(-Xd)" denotes a late join, the bar shows the last 7 days activity (red = day with no votes, orange = negative ratio (given < received), green = positive ratio (given >= received)) The icon at the beginning of every row in the list shows today's pending attendance status
