i gotta say, it's best if it's got a good story, good artwork, a colorful cast of characters, and isn't always letting people guess what's gonna happen next... and end up letting them be right..

Honestly, I only check on webcomic updates once a month or so, so if the author updates too frequently, it becomes rather overwhelming. :(

i think it depends on how much content is being released with each update. if we are talking like...1 page/5-ish panels at a time, i would expect updates once a week or once every 2 weeks at the longest. i think id want web comics to be like tv shows. come in seasons and update weekly.

I don't mind the uploads are far behind, I'm a little busy, and feel it can quickly get too much when you upload 3 pages every day.

So I'd rather want you to work really hard on your comic, and upload it when you feel it's ready :)

The schedule should be consistent for the sake of keeping your audience's attention. Even if it has to be every two weeks or so, if the schedule is relatively consistent, the audience will continue to check the comic. You can sacrifice quality a little bit for a quicker schedule, as long as you go back and refine the artwork in a timely manner.

For example: sometimes Coelasquid (Creator of Manly Guys Doing Manly Things) will upload a page that is junk inks or just flats, but she quickly goes back and updates the artwork to completion, all while maintaining a consistent schedule.

I don't mind infrequent updates as long as there's a RSS feed. I follow a little over 90 comics, so it's nice when I can just go down the list instead of having to memorize a bunch of schedules.

If the story is good and art is nice, once per week is good. But I'd prefer it to be twice per week.

Well in my experience, I prefer webcomics that are easily accessible and have a time schedule. Ava's Demon is a great Tumblr webcomic with excellent art but updates so infrequently, I would forget about it had I not been watching it on Tumblr.
