A new coat of paint - The DD website design update!

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Jan. 12, 2018

Last year, our glorious leader Oz suggested that the site needed a fresh, new coat of paint to bring the community forward in the webcomic sphere. As a way to usher in a brand new year for the DrunkDuck community, we unveiled the new look for the website over at the forums for you all to look and give feedback on. Some of the new features we are looking to introduce include:

- A front page that features even more comics. Featured comics now get more real estate, latest comics are right near the top and now we feature the top 5 comics in the key genres on the site. That's a total of 40 comic spots now.

- Forums with a fresh, new skin to match the rest of the site.

- A completely overhauled creator profile adding a whole new section namely awards and badges.

- The ability to search for comics either in the “Recently Updated”, “Popular” or “Spotlight” categories. You'll be able to narrow it down by the genre as well. This page will default to “recently updated” to give new comics a chance to be seen.

- Three new templates you can use for your comic to give you a head start! There's the “Basic Blue”, “Eerie Ebony,” and “Sherbet Sorbet”. You'll still be able to put in your own coding if you want to personalise your site.

- An updated logo has been updated as well. It's a slight departure from “The Duck” to “DD Webcomics”. Given the community refers to the site as DD most of the time it seemed fitting to bring that back whilst highlighting what it is we do here. This is our community and we have always been DD!

You can visit the “DRUNK DUCK graphical redesign????” forum to have a look over the new designs. Let us know what you think of the redesign. Are there any features you would like to see incorporated that we might have missed? You can comment either here or in the thread itself!

Onwards and upwards into 2018!

@Mks monsters: the notification for comments still needs to be fined. We have $170 out of 600 raised so a long way yet to go! I need to do better at raising money for it :(

A huge improvement on all fronts! The logo is the only thing I find slightly confusing but I can't wait to see all of this eventually go live.

Awesome! Do we get notifications for comments and such now too?
