Yes… I destroyed another function of my website. See my other post about what I did wrong.

The Comix Scene has been my attempt at creating a social network for independent creators. I’ve tried multiple applications for over a decade. I incorporated the domain into Mythos earlier this year. I read about a social network program called JCow that seemed promising. I detached The Comix Scene domain from my WP Multisite install and creating its own folder to test the program. JCow free only allows for 5 users for the free package. That didn’t seem to fit with what I want. I tried to reapply The Comix Scene domain to the correct subfolder on Mythos. It did not work. I made multiple attempts with different domains and nothing. I modified the database and double check the .htaccess file. Still nothing.

After some though, I removed the domain. I have never gotten my social network off the ground. I could not replicate the success I had building a social network that I did years ago. With all the social media apps out there, is there really a point anymore? I feel that platforms like Discord are far more effective, and I will not eat up site memory.

I changed The Comix Scene to Mythos Social. I will still blog. I am currently finding inexpensive ways to open the forum and the activity wall to visitors. After 10 years of trying, it is time to call it quits with The Comix Scene. Maybe, at some point, I can turn the domain into a Mastodon server. Or maybe not. Who knows.
