Why have a key?

All the text on one page suddenly showing up bold? Bad links? Titles missing from the Key? Let us know here.

Why have a key?

Post by Human-Man » Sun Apr 05, 2009 8:28 am

I am wondering why not just list the full names of the comics in the chronologies? Is it to save on characters or just to keep it clean looking? Seems like it would make the list a lot easier to read.

At a guess, it might be to save memory -- by keeping the total amount of characters to a minimum?

As an example, the "S" page currently sits at about 300k. If we expanded the titles, the page size would balloon to 7 megabytes.
