That is because someone has been changing the update method from the standard for comic Genesis to reg_exp, even though there is no reason or need to.

I fix them when they cause trouble and I see them, but to be honest, we need to find out who is doing this.

What is the reg exp they are changing it to?

Not just one. The also set it to full page check as well.
The main one they use goes like this:
http:\\/\\/cerintha\\.comicgenesis\\.com\\/comics\\/(.*?)"

Others are like:
<lastBuildDate>(.*?)<\\/lastBuildDate> for the rss feed
>First Strip<(.*?)>Previous Strip<
first_day\\.gif"(.*?)name="previous_day"
src=('|")http://sandusky\\.comicgenesis\\.com/comics/(.*?)\\1

Those are the only ones I have caught so far due to them showing up as problems. I have no idea how many will simply not update.

Going down the list, the only problem regestering for Comic Genesis comics that I could not be solve by changing it from reg exp to the standard Comic Genesis check was Pirate Queen Marianne, which has vanished.

I can understand ir for Magical Roommate, A and Mindmistress as they do not get the normal method, but that is all.

Oh, do you personally know that these ones where using comic genesis as the method previously? 'Cause those are the reg exps we would use before I fixed the comic genesis method about 4 months ago.

If they where recent edits, than one of the admins is unaware that the comic genesis method has been fixed.

Or maybe those comics only recently started working with the regular method.

I KNOW for a fact that I was having them them work using the comic genesis mothod and now no longer working otherwise. I personnally put some of them into the database myself using the comic genesis method, and one fo them, Rave Kitty, I had to put back to the comic genesis method a couple of times in one week this month.

That last one I mentioned had been working on the comic genesis for a while, and suddenly it changed.

Hmm... those all look like my regexes, but I haven't changed any working entries. Or any at all for the past month or so, while my computer was in for repairs.
