UPDATE: The Duck Webcomics Launch Schedule

  • Announcement
  • Updated 4 years ago
Hi Everyone,

Just a quick update on the relaunch of the new Duck Webcomics site, which was scheduled to go live today at 3pm (PDT). Unfortunately, although all comic images have been migrated over to the new site, the database migration is taking longer than expected. As a result, we've had to revise the timeline of the new site going live.

The new date for the relaunch of The Duck Webcomics site is now Thursday, July 7th, 3pm (PDT). We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause some of you, but we ask for your patience just a little while longer while we work to get the new site up.

Details regarding the new site launch can be found here http://www.drunkduck.com/news/news_ar...

Thank you.

Lawrence H. Leach
Chief Technology Officer - WOWIO, Inc.

You have until tomorrow! >:(

Hehehehe....no, j/k. ;)

I actually love this, I'm getting caught up so fast on a ton of series. The only reason I'm so anxious for the new site is because I want to post some updates, but even then, the longer you take, the more time I have to procrastinate on actually doing my job as a comic book artist.

All I can say is, thank the lord for alternative websites. And I don't mean like, other webcomic hosts; DrunkDuck's A-OK in my book. I mean in the sense of, I've got two portfolio-housing websites on deviantArt/FurAffinity for the time being to keep people updated on new pages.

I have a question, though. I haven't checked in on DD since the announcement came and went sometime ago; will the upload dates for pages be maintained as they were before the switch changed? I took a break for 'Keeping Up with Thursday' around the middle of June, because I finished pages early, and had them all set up until July 19th.

Basically my question is, if I had several pages due in 3-day intervals - will this be inflicted and I have to start over, or will they be left alone? I'd kinda hat to get backlogged and reupload pages that were supposed to have gone up on the days they were do. Would a page I intended to launch, say, a few days ago, still be available?

I've been booked heavily this summer, so my apologies in advance if this question may sound dumb or anything.

Aaron~

Can't wait to see the results this evening. This comment isn't so much a contribution to the topic as it is me...whining. Yeah.

I was one of those kids they had to hide the presents from during holidays. I just can't take the waiting!

LOL!

growing up I behaved (or Else!) but as an adult I didn't feel I had to wait any more (pre-kids). I got such kudos for all those "immediate" thank you notes.

I think it was Hippie Van who suggested that Lawrence should have picked his best guess, and then added seven days.

But if he had added seven to the 5 July date (and been just about right) we wouldn't have this fun of:

How much hair you have left, Leachy?

Not much. :-( It's in clumps on the floor around me.

After today I think I can let it start growing again.

Today for sure! I don't have a time yet. We will send out an update when we are ready to let everybody in. But as it looks right now, it will be up later today. (Possibly this evening.)
