If we write such articles, we need to make sure the said projects are very advanced, though, in terms of completion. We need to avoid discussing about projects where only a title screen and rudimentary engine is done, since they still have small chances to be completed at such early stage of completion.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

hmm, @the comic idea:  What if we made the comics as a .8xp program, so you send it to your calc and it will be a movie, or a scrollable picture...
Eh, that'd be kind of a hassle, don't'cha think? I mean, then we'd have to include extra stuff and then people would have to hassle with transferring it or putting it on emu.

Definitely a good rule.

for the comic I definitively think we should do something like a real comic (or maybe XKCD) but instead of drawn characters, they would be sprites from calc games

A sprite comic, oh fun. This could be interesting.
I would suggest limiting each frame of the comic to 96*64 pixels (though by 'pixel' I mean uniformly colored constant-sized square) and 8-level grey-scale, but that seems a bit too limiting. :P

mhmm idk about that. The issue would mostly be text, altough maybe the 96x64 blocks could be scaled up and the text be like in normal comics rather than pixelated

I've seen that done, and that could actually work.
