Okay, what am I doing wrong here?

Found this in my referrers: a listing that includes Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan.

My update schedule is Monday/Wednesday/Friday. It's mentioned at the top of the page. I'm pretty reliable - one missed update every few months, so I'm not up there with Gav Bleuel, but it's a pretty good track record.
My forum is also mentioned near the top of the page. Should I make the link red and blinking? Should I make it automatically pop up a warning with ghastly midi sounds playing a specially composed "go to the forum, my dear friend" tune? Should I make it a column filling image link, left uncompressed so that readers notice it when it finally loads?
I can understand casual readers not noticing these things, really. I know that web readers are lazy, selfish and impatient and that it is right that they should be so and that there's nothing you can do to change that. When I'm surfing the web, I am lazy, selfish and impatient, and I like it that way. It's good to be the king.
But when you make a listing for a comic, you put a bit of work into it. You find out the update schedule, you find out the forum, you look for the about page. I do.

Ah well. A polite note to the webmaster should do the trick.

Update: The mail form on the site turns out to work only with registered members, and when I pressed the back button, it ate my polite note. They'll just have to find it out from this blog entry then.
