Well, in that case, unless it's intentional, you spelled the name of Qaboos wrong in once instance, typing "Quaboos" instead, there:

Fixed. Thanks!

What does the Flag button do, now, if it works differently?

Well, it doesn't work "differently". What it does is push any unlocked flagged archives to the front for the transcriber to check. Once I locked the archives, that function no longer 'works'. So you can flag it - but there is no way (that I know of) to find the flagged ones. Locking it, probably resets any previous 'flag', and I am not sure that you can flag a locked transcript. I do have to lock the archives - I've found a few of transcripts 'messed up' as I was going through cleaning them up. So bots or people will mess with any unlocked text box they can find...

Also, thanks a lot for this great tool. You have no idea how helpful it has been.

Thank DaveRhodes for setting up the software and storing the transcripts. I just type. Also, as I mentioned, it was crowdsourced at first, so the first 10-15 years was a group effort, and I do not know who all helped - but they deserve a lot of thanks, too!

https://archives.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=2020-11-18, Panel 3:

"SACRIFICE IT ALL FOR TRUE LOVE?'

The phrase should either have double quotation marks on both ends or single quotation marks on both ends. Since the phrase is an actual quote, that is not within another quote, double quotation marks is probably the appropriate choice.

1/29. Third panel. The noun's "prophecy", not "prophesy", which is the verb.

Unwanted apostrophes:
Panel 2:
"wants" instead of "want's"
Panel 3: "its" instead of "it's"

Panel 4:

Quint: Most demons have far more will that a normal man could withstand.

should be

Quint: Most demons have far more will than a normal man could withstand.

Last panel of 2021-Mar-15 should say "Foolproof", not "Fullproof".

Quint sees the 1000-yr-old box and says "Incredulous!"

I think he meant "Incredible!" "Incredulous" is "unwilling to admit or accept what is offered as true." Quint IS incredulous, but I don't think he would SAY incredulous.

Surprised this one slipped by:
https://archives.sluggy.com/book.php?ch ... 2021-02-19
Second frame:
"The book will "want" it's properly bound spells back"
Should be
"The book will "want" its properly bound spells back"

The sentence doesn't make sense otherwise.

For https://archives.sluggy.com/book.php?ch ... 2021-04-09

I'm going to treat this one as equivalent to a typo (because then there's finally a place where I'm officially allowed to point it out), although I have to guess at the intended meaning.

Kozoaku calls the Mohkadun God-Team "sentient" beings. Everybody keeps saying "sentient" when they mean intelligent beings, "sapient" in meaning 3 here https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/sapient#Adjective "Sentient" means having inner experience, being able to sense or feel things. Unintelligent animals that can feel pain and so on are also sentient. The case for animal rights is pretty much based on sentience. So the correct word would be "sapient" here if the intended meaning is intelligent beings.
