FRIDAY NEWSPOST - A New Way Forward for DrunkDuck

After some drama with the website the other day (I'm sure most of you noticed that the site was down for a time) and some cleverness on the part of ozoneocean, I'm writing my first newspost with DD officially under community control.

I'm pretty darn excited, and truth be told I wanted to get started right away asking for new ideas and stuff - but it's way too early for that. There is still a lot of work to be done before we can really start making changes.

The important part, though, is that going forward this site will really be in the hands of DDers. The community here was what drew me in the first place, and it's what's kept me here for years. Now instead of a top-down approach where the mysterious head honchos are trying to work around the community, I hope we can build a new system where DDers can have a real say in the future of the site.

MILESTONE



PaulEberhartd's Master the Tiger is back from hiatus, and has hit 200 pages!

From Paul:
“Just wanted to make it official that Master the Tiger is back on the scene and by sheer coincidence has broken the 200-page mark as well. There is an extra-large super-special comeback page to celebrate. Thanks a million all those readers who found their way back.”

Onward, to the land of Oz!

Honestly, I'm just so pleased that DD is going to be around - that it now has the opportunity to get better, with our help and suggestions, is just gravy!!

Wow, this is great, can't wait to be able to make some suggestions on improvements to site features.

A real say! I like that. Most websites are setup like monarchies/dictatorships, no matter what they say. It's going to be hard to escape that structure, but we're going to try. This place doesn't need a king or a toxic hierarchy... I have some ideas on how to spread the power and keep it spread. -Representative democracy just means elected dictators, so that wouldn't be the mode either.
