Site redesign update, NEWS!

This is our first progress update on 2023!
There's not a lot to report at the moment. Alexey has fixed up the news page display so you can go through all the news updates and even listen to the latest Quackcast when you get t the bottom of the window. I'm not sure how functional that particular aspect is (listening to the Quackcast) for most members, but it's good to see more of the site working using Emm's new interface.

New archive template -

Both DylanTale Comics and ThrisbyDude are working on some new logos for the site, I'll include versions bellow and you can see more of ThrisbyDude's here:
Anyone is free to make new logos for the site and if they're appropriate we will include them in regular rotation on the new front page and use them in promo images on social media.
The proportions should be either 4:3 or 2:1 for now.

2022 was a big year for DD and its redesign. We finally started working on it after all these years of talking. Bluecuts34 and Damehelsing helped kick-start things by organising an anthology to raise money to pay for the changes! We didn't raise enough in the end to pay for the whole project but it was a good start to begin the process. Instead I'm funding it through my own money and slowly paying that off from the funds we raise through Patreon, ads and donations. It was the kick in the pants that we needed though! Without their efforts we'd always be waiting for the right time to begin.

Emma Clare came out on top in the design competition for the new site look when we did that a few years ago, so that's the template Alexey started working from. However, since then Emma has revised the design quite a bit and simplified things, which prevents us ending up with an old-fashioned looking site due to how long it's taken to get the redesign underway.

Alexey has finished the look of the Front page, News posts, and the News archive, and the rest of the site will be based on the look of those, with custom member created DD logos and backgrounds.

Comments and feedback welcome and needed as always!

@Bravo Ahhhhh! Alexey puts whatever is up on the main page of the real site at the time XD

Thank you so much, Paul!! I had a lot of fun, especially with my take on the infamous Duck.

PaulEberhardt at 5:06AM, Jan. 7, 2023

These logos look great! Kudos to DylanTale, especially. @ThrisbyDude: thanks for the info.

@Ozoneocean: I'm teasing you because of all the comics (and there are a lot) there's not a single one of mine. So this is this a harbinger of a bravo1102 free Drunk Duck? ;)

DylanTale Comics at 10:20AM, Jan. 6, 2023

So excited to see this once it's completed!!

Ozoneocean at 10:07AM, Jan. 6, 2023

@Bravo, What's going on? Did I miss a contribution? If so I'll correct it if you let me know. I wrote this in a rush today...

Ozoneocean at 10:05AM, Jan. 6, 2023

Thanks guys!

These look great! :D

I might contribute a logo, been looking for an excuse to dabble with Inkscape anyway. I'm no expert illustrator by any means but messing with fonts is fun. :^)

Tantz_Aerine at 2:46AM, Jan. 6, 2023

Looking sharp!

bravo1102 at 12:31AM, Jan. 6, 2023

A glimpse into the future of the site! And the future looks even better because it seems like I'm not a part of it. Is this some kind of a hint? ROFLMAO

So, to explain further what Ozone means, Duck users - the 4:3 proportion means your picture should be 1440 x 1080 pixels (that's the dimensions). Second proportion is 2:1; it means that your picture could be 1920 x 960 pixels.
