Can you believe we've been going THIS long and we're STILL around? It still surprises me. Things have tried to kill us but nothing's worked yet. We predate all the current social medial. We saw MySpace come and go, we saw Facebook rise from nothing, we saw YouTube wink into existence and the birth of the Tube sites… The whole streaming thing is just a recent blink to us.
There's no update this week on the site redesign progress so I thought I'd reminisce instead. What are your fondest memories from the site history?
I have many. The Top Drawer was a fun part of the forums back in the day. It had been the home of trashy threads that didn't fit anywhere else so it wasn't worth having a moderator looking after it because there were no topics to stick to. A bunch of members discovered that weird loophole and started playing around in there. We had fantastic games. We created artwork and comics based on the dumb stuff we got up to. We teased each other and had all sorts of rivalries which made us more creative.
It couldn't last though… Some antisocial people had to test the limits and take things too far. They also re-posted stuff from the then burgeoning Fourchan, some of it quite bad. The place that was fun precisely because it was completely un-moderated then desperately required moderation, this killed the vibe. It had been fun while it lasted. There's a lesson in that!
Another great memory is when I came to the USA. This was back in the Wowio days and they were doing well. They had a huge launch party on board a yacht at San Diego Comic Con 2010. I got to meet many Drunk Duckers in person and it was a super amazing experience. It was so good I came back the next year in 2011 and met a few more ducklings. I've met more over the years since and I'm still friends with them. In fact meeting Tantz Aerine in Greece and then going back again to meet Tantz AND Pitface was awesome too.
Comic-wise, I've been very happy to be posting Pinky TA on DD all these years and working on Bottomless Waitress together with Banes.
