World's Toughest Milkman
[up]It should depend on how long they've been a webcomic, IMO. For example, Girl Genius was a comic book years before it was a webcomic (and still is, so it's really in the wrong namespace). The first comic was published in 2001, but the first webcomic was only published in 2005, so it shouldn't be on this list until 2015.

"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

[up] So... by ten years? That would make the page way too short.

As I proposed earlier, how about just five years? That's be much better.

Look at the sandbox. Ten years as a cutoff point gives plenty, and it will be growing every year. Five years wouldn't be considered a long runner for any other medium, so why should it be here?

I just added a whole bunch more webcomics to the sandbox and I know I'm still missing some. If anyone else knows any old ones, please feel free to fill it in more.

Would people feel better if we included start month in the dates running?

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Also: Calling crowner in favor of listing by years running and adding a common sense warning.

No, the other one.
Starting dates are relevant to the trope, so yes.

[up][up]Is this really a "trope", though?

 85 Another Duck, Mon, 24th Sep '12 6:57:13 PM from Stockholm Relationship Status: In season
No, the other one.
Are you arguing my choice of words, or that the page isn't a trope and should thus be cut or moved to Trivia or something?

I misinterpreted what you were saying, but the latter - this is pretty clearly trivia.

No, the other one.
Actually, it's an index anyway.

Then I'd say the wicks need some cleaning.

I think there is enough 10-year-old webcomics to say it's time to make a change. That being said, perhaps the current page should be renamed Webcomic Archive Panic, as there are enough comics that fit into one yet not the other.

Since web-comics are a more flighty medium, I'd suggest maybe dropping the qualification for a webcomic to 5 years.

Huh, wait. Is the sandbox ready to go? Ten years is a good cut-off point.

I've fixed the sandbox to adjust for the year change. If no objections are raised, swap with mainpage, cutlisting and lock request will ensue.

[up]Lock request?

[down]Oh, right. Never mind. :)

Well, it's been 3 days so I've swapped the pages, put a comment in and cutlisted the sandbox. I'll take a look at the wicks.

And wick cleanup done.

Thank you sir. Anything else need to be done, or can I lock up?
