Comics no one reads: does the site check them?

The other discussion got me thinking about this. Does the site check comics that no one reads anymore for updates? Might save bandwidth/money if it didn't.

I do know that if a comic has ended, or gone missing, it still checks for them until the people running Comic Nation are informed. One for well over a year! I would say yes.

The next question would be how to impliment your idea.

Which is a great one, by the way.

I have thought about it. You would need to read the favorite list for every single member, active and dormant, to make a list of comics to search for. You would not include the comics that would be listed as not checked for updates.

This would probably require a major overhaul of the site to impliment.

Here is how the auto update thingy gets the list of comics to run through the check function, [i]I think[i].

comics = Comic.find(:all, :select=>[:id], :limit=>150, :conditions => ["`on` = ? and comic_checked_at <= ? and comic_updated_at <= ?", 1, Time.now.ago(60*60), Time.now.ago(3600 * 14)], :order=>"comic_checked_at asc")

You might be able to see the part where it excludes comic that have updated recently.

The comic model starts with

class Comic < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :subscriptions, :dependent => :delete_all

though our concern is ones that have no subscriptions. I'm s little too busy to think at the moment, so I'm throwing it out there.
