THIS is the start of the story chunk that was the reason I skipped that week. I ended up changing the bus stuff like six or seven times until I got this idea. It gets better, trust me.
So I found out that if I set the update...date for the day I want it updated it will update on that date. Sorry for the redundency. If you're confused what this basically means is I can post the comic and set the date for Friday, for example, and it will update on Friday! This means the news posts will be made days before you see them. Like this one.
