And taking it a step further -- just give more likes, comments, and help promote the stories you like. The webcomics community has always thrived on doing these things (long before hositing sites became a big deal), so I'm confused as to why that would suddenly be stopped or slowed down.
I just find other ways to support the creators I like, especially if they have completed series. I would rather promote the stuff I wanna see more of and make a big stink than wait around and hope someone does it for me. And that's just in general.
Ink is only one way to give support. And as you can see on Tapas (and as I've seen since 2017), people crave audience interaction. So if you haven't gone through and given any recent links or comments, maybe now's the time.
I'm saying this without the mod hat on. I'm saying this as someone who struggled with getting more people to interact since 2017. If you can't give ink, at least give more links, comments, and help promote your peers.
And a lot of us here already do that, so this is not geared towards the usual people.
