They made me do it ><

Seriously though, I just transfered my comic from Smackjeeves cuz it seemed a “tad” dead ended.
I've been here less than a week and already made friends and picked up alot of tips and tricks. And yes, it's indeed user friendly and gets you to challenge yourself if only for the sake of trying to stand out in the already outstanding crowd in here.

I looked at other sites including smackjeeves and I liked the interface here better than the other sites. Of course that was before I got knocked offline by some SQL error 800 times but it seems better now :) Also, there are a lot of fun people and the people that run DD seem a little easier going than SmackJeeves ;)

Anyway, really enjoying my time here… hope everyone is doing the same,
AG

my join date says i'm new…but i actually used to have a book on DD like 5 years ago….

i found DD on a forum…that i cannot recall for the life of me. it was a bit of a different animal back then….but pretty much the same beast. i loved the community there/here and everything that was offered for free hosting. didn't we used to publish paper copies of the most popular comics? or was that some crazy dream i has 5 years ago?

anyway, i came back because i enjoyed the community here. everyone was really supportive and things were easy to use. it's been MUCH more streamlined now and easier to manage me book. there are some new bugs with the buy out and i have tried to say my comic is not rated “everyone” for the past week, and it keeps that nice little “E” on my default page…….i shudder to think of any hapless kiddos that stumble upon my stories to see naked bums and my f-bombs dropped in the comments section.

one, because im too lazy to buy a domain and host it.

two, because it will reach a wider audience if i put it on here instead of trying to make a thread for it on every comic message board out there.

Well. I had been on smackjeeves for over an year and my comic gained almost no readers since in there it feels like only Yaoi/shounen-ai/boylove comics gain attention, and my comic wasn't like that.
I heard about this Drunk Duck and decided to do an account in here in the beginning of this year. I was going to upload my comic here then but I changed my mind and kinda forgot about this place.
Now I came back and decided to start to upload my comic here too and I even actually did it this time.
Soyeah. Basically I started uploading my comic here so I could see would my comic gain any readers here ^^'

Mystic Hand
I've been checking out the various host sites for a future Web comic, and I was wondering if anyone here had any special reasons for choosing Drunk Duck. If you were to start over, would you still stick with the Duck?

And is there any way to avoid having the silly “drunkduck” name in your comics' URL? I like the site, but the name implies that everything here is a gag strip. That's great if you have a gag strip, but…

I think there are a lot of silly and serious strips on drunk dunk. Mine is middle of the road

'Cos I sensed (my inevitable) failure in SmackJeeves, and this place looked pretty cool. A new comic life, I guess, and hopefully a more fulfilling one. 8'D

I joined because I'd read some good comics on Drunk Duck by some people, and I make a ton of comics that I never do anything with.

I decided to post on this one because it seemed a lot simpler, quicker and easier to get going compared to other sites I tried.
I was posting my comic the same day I signed up.
Since coming to Drunk Duck I have found it really easy to use and lots of fun.

I believe DD has the simplest and most accurate browsing interface I've seen so far. Not to mention a genuine sort of camaraderie among users. As a sort of courtesy to all of the great comics I've read on DD I decided to post mine here too.

well a comic I liked was hosted here, so I was all “hmm, wonder what this is about?”

I poked around a bit, and thought “woah, so you just sign up, and you can…make and post your own comic? easy as that?” I had never heard of such a concept before XD

I'm not a huge comic-making person, but the offer was too good to pass up. I made an account primarily for commenting, but recently I've decided to pursue a comic.

so…bam!

I chose DD because Day of the Nano Twister got rejected from Bob and George. Looking back, it's pretty obvious why.

If it's not sane to spell words with your Cheerios, I don't want to be sane.

Managing comics on DD is real easy to accomplish quickly and concisely. I love it.

Actually, DD is just one of my comics' mirrors. I much prefer my own space with pretty much 100% control over content and design. But the community here is lovely. Much more lovely than I anticipated, really…:D I like this place. It's active!

I just found out about this site yesterday and I'm so glad I did. I chose to post my comics on here because this place really has great talents and it's so user friendly. Respect to the DD community and its' creator. Thank you for helping us to share our stories.

a friend of mine who also makes comics pointed the site out to me. I like it because it's easy to manipulate and uploading comics is a breeze. I'm not very good with html and such. maybe someday I'll make my own site but until then I'm more concerned with making a quality comic.

I'd have to say I preferred the layout here as opposed to other hosting sites.
God needed the Devil, the Beatles needed the Rolling Stones, Hakoshen needs me.
I'm the enemy he requires to define him.

Because I am a masochist. Seriously, though, it was/is for multiple reasons, mostly to take over spots on other sites for my dear comic babies. DD is way more streamlined than most other sites I've floated through. It has all black and white selection processes (or the nitty gritty type A selection process) – specifically the HTML or template selection, cutting out the need to figure things out on your own or get stuck with the same thing everyone else has. I do find the menu more confusing (too used to smackjeeves, honestly).
It also has an AWESOME community, and a less anal-retentive, stress-inducing staff.

I was told to put a comic strip here rather than just put it on photobucket by some middle school girls on Gaiaonline.

I had a bet with my friend to see who could create the best web comic, and this was the easiest site to use.

I joined drunkduck just now to try it out as the second host. Sorry, no best-and-easy-to-use sugar-filled post here (actually it took quite a time to put everything up). But I want to try out the community here and get feedback :)
I must admit drunkduck is less intuitive than smackjeeves, but I like some features (like scheduling your page to appear at a later date).
So we will see if it was worth it :)

Mostly I joined because it is super user friendly and no one makes fun of you for using the word “super” as a adjective when describing the community, even though I just joined. I had tried Comic Genesis, but once I signed up I couldn't log on and when I tried to use the help link, it came back as a bum link. So I started looking around and Drunkduck was the best reviewed. “Angry Nana” is the comic, I'm the creator , please check it out and let me know what you think.

DD is a very friendly place and more organized. It also have more options in categories than SmackJeeves. They don't have a stickfigure category. DD gives love to all sorts of artist. Once you get used to it, it's quite easy to use. I also love the fact that you can set a site bookmark on your favorite comics right then and there.

DD is fantastic. ^_^

Stumbleupon led me to Last Place comics which is hosted by this site. I Had just finished reading all of Perry Bible Fellowship and Truck Bearing Kibble and haven't drawn in a while, so I figured I'd give it a go. It also has a pretty cool format.

I honestly cannot believe that I did not see this topic.

Well, I did host my comic on deviantArt exclusively for a while. But that was back when I drew that terrible comic strip (what my name is about). While browsing the internet for more sites to put my terrible strip on, I stumbled upon (not with the website, lol) Drunkduck.

I signed up here, using my old name (back when it was current), and I started to host the strip. I didn't do much with it, and kinda didn't use my account for a few months. Then I came back in February of last year, and started hosting.


But that's beside the point. The reason why is, everything about here is so great. The community (including members), the staff is really kind, actually ones that you can become friends with! Posting a comic page is simple, and everybody seems to get along (for the most part).
Sure Drunkduck has it's problems, but then again, nothing is perfect. And that's fine with me.
