Last comic of 2008! I hope you all have a great year, and I'll see you in 2009. :D

Vote Incentive
The vote incentive is back for January! If KT makes the top 50 of BuzzComix, the top 100 of TopWebComics, or the #1 spot on Photo Web Comics, there will be a bonus comic Monday, January 19. That's a week earlier than usual, so start voting! But wait... please read this warning first.

The Wrench in the Gears
Photo Web Comics was hijacked by ill-mannered geeks with nothing better to do last week. Some of you may have noticed that if you clicked the link to vote, you were taken to a nasty phishing site. It was Christmas, man! The site's maintainer has regained control, but there are still some bugs. The vote button on my site will take you to PWC, but the button here on LiveJournal, despite using the same code, will still take you to a phishing site. o_O

If you see alt text instead of a button, please do not click the link. The broken image means it's not working correctly. I hate to ask you to jump through hoops, but if you want to vote safely, please head over to my website for a safe vote button. I'm really, really sorry for the inconvenience. Hopefully, they'll have it fixed soon!

Edit 14 March 2009: Voting links replaced

Oyyy my antivirus goes nuts everytime i visit my friendspage, so it's a really good idea if no one clicks on the link, like Dava said!

Anyway, seems like 2009 is gonna be a really interesting year for KT! :D

Yes, your link is corrupt, Dava, don't click on it anyone!
I will remember to vote everyday (sorry, I have been a bit slack lately)...
Have a safe and happy New Years, everyone!
Good luck to Kimono's Townhouse!

It's the weirdest thing! The HTML is exactly the same in both places, but the LJ link redirects to a phishing site. LJ Support told me it's a problem with Photo Web Comic's code. I've emailed them but haven't heard back. :-/ I've never heard of a problem like that!

Is that a new Minty pose? :) It looks like that one that has (had) the 3-D symbol. She looks good.

It is! It's from The World's Largest Tea Party set. My husband gave it to me for Christmas. ^_^

Look! World's Biggest Tea Party Minty! Be ENVIOUS!

We want her. Lucky Dava!

She's affordable now! The price on the set has dropped to the $20-30 range. *shoos you off to eBay*

So I was thinking, how about if you changed the code on your LJ to redirect to a special page you could set up on your site that explains the situation and has the proper link for people to click? That way if people want to vote but don't bother reading your announcement about it or they forget the link doesn't work properly, they won't bring up the phishing site.

Hopefully the situation gets fixed soon, though. It is really odd that the code is only broken on LJ. Do you know anyone who has another journal site, who could test it there? It seems weird that it's only broken on one site in particular.

If there's still a problem in a few days, I'll have to do that, I bet. This isn't the first time PWC has had this problem (he must have an easily guessed password or something), but it's usually fixed in a day or two. Right now, it's only affecting LJ users, as far as I know.

Hee! Kimono's so restrained! How long will it last?

Happy New Year to you, Dava! Thanks for bringing the great comics everyday you say you will!

Hahahaa! Good for Kimono for sticking to her resolution. XD

Yep, still seeing the alt text. I'm wondering if you should just edit out the link until it's fixed, so no one misses your warning and clicks on it. Directing voters to use the button on the KT site is a good temporary alternative.

Kimono's doing better than I am! :P

I've settled on a compromise for the moment. I changed the alt text to warn you that if you see it and not the image, not to click the link. If it's not fixed in a couple days, I'll have to do something else.

I just love this comic. xD It's pure gold. Gratuitous...

(These vote things are getting stranger and stranger, though. Ask Dr Eldritch has currently no votes? That's weird... And what's up with buzzcomix?)

Dr. E. is currently on break, so that probably has something to do with it. I think he removed his vote button during the hijacking, and since he's on vacation, he hasn't put it back up.

Oh, great! Now BuzzComix is down, too?!

I feel Kimono's pain...I could never stick to that resolution.

mal-ware
Hi Dava,
On my visit to your site (on my PC at home) I had a mal-ware popup come up with Avast (using Firefox). I didn't have any other sites open, so I don't know how or why it came up with your site, but I thought I should give you the heads up. :(

I'm hoping it was just a fluke.

Re: mal-ware
Just from my website? Not from using a vote button or anything?

As always great comic. Poor Kimono I think she is going to have trouble keeping her resolution. I think Minty might have trouble keeping hers too.
