Not much site update news this week so I thought I'd help promote this two big community projects instead!
Have you heard of the latest DD anthology project? What IS the DD anthology? Well it's a community project that's done to help the site pay for our upgrades! It will feature comics by a whole bunch of DDers (maybe YOU?), all variations on the common theme, which for this one is “Dreams”. DD anthologies go waaaaaay back in time to the very beginning of the site 20 years ago, but it was the team headed by Bluecuts and DameHelsing who revived the tradition and put it to use specifically to try and get the site upgrades kickstarted, which they did with their horror themed anthology.
This time around Genejoke is heading it and they're doing a safe version and a not safe version so that should be interesting!
Find out about that here:
The DD awards are another great community tradition that have been going on for years and years! For a lot of that time Niccea has been in charge as she is now. This is a comic awards show, like the Oscars, or Golden Globes, but for comics and creators here on DD. Not only can you win awards for your comics, you can get recognised for your contribution to the community, your skills as an artist or writer and many other things. The awards are also an amazing way to get involved in the community, and they can help you raise your profile here and promote your comics too so it's a win win!

Now for site update news-
Things are still on track. Lothar found a bug on the site in the forums, where whoever started a forum thread was able to delete any of the posts within that thread, no matter who posted. Now that's not a major bug but it's not good to have stuff like that around. The only people allowed to delete user posts are the users who MADE the posts or admins (who typically don't unless it's spam). You don't want just anyone messing with your free expression. So you'll be pleased to know Alexey fixed that.
Our test site is available here, have a look and click on the comics to see how they work with the new template setup: https://next.theduckwebcomics.com/.
