If you don't want to do that though, that's fine.
If other people want to do it, it's their call.
Actually no. Your post will be deleted whenever a mod sees the "clutter." This thread is #1 for posting about your updates (ONLY when you update) and why you like them and why others should read them. But commenting (no not empty compliments, useful criticism, etc. is also encouraged though no one has dome so in a while) is also part of it to ensure that someone has actually looked at the update.
A thread is not defined entirely by its title, btw. You should always read the first post to know what any thread is about...
(Oh, and it's also not about talking about your whole comic or "pimping" it. There is a whole board for that. That's part of the reason we incorporate actual commenting and interaction in this thread. Otherwise it would be a bunch of "ads" with no one paying attention to each other.)
