This thread is completely out of date- the new thread is stickied at the top of the Networking and Community forum! However I 'm keeping this info around because it may be useful.
DO NOT RELY ON THIS THREAD TO BE ACCURATE- MOST OF THESE PROJECTS HAVE ENDED
What community projects are going on? It's nice to have them all in one place, isn't it? Well here you are!
This thread is always in development! Let me know if I've forgotten any by replying in this thread. Also reply if you want your community project added to this list. (I'll probably delete your reply after adding the info to the first post.)
Let's keep this thread tidy, OK? If you have questions about one of the projects, try and direct them to the person who is running it. I've provided links to forum threads etc. where they're relevant. You're much more likely to get an answer if you talk to the right people!
I'd consider a community project to be something that involves people's creativity in some way, and also invites group participation and contribution of ideas and is not just an 'opportunity' for other people to draw something you wrote. Link exchanges wouldn't really count. Fan art exchanges might, if there was a person organizing them or it was an ongoing thing (like the Secret Santa project).
If you've submitted a community project but I haven't added it, it's probably because it sounded too much like you just wanted an artist or colorist and the participants would not have much say about what actually went into the comic or its direction. A comic that has already been written and just needs people to contribute pages is not really a community project, it's just one or a few people looking for guest artists. Most people participate in community projects because they're looking to get some of their own ideas and characters out there.
Aus Comics (ongoing)
People take turns drawing new pages of a story based on what has happened so far. Like a Jam but not limited to panels.
Character Desktop Wallpaper (finished)
How many Drunk Duck characters can be crammed into a wallpaper?
Civil War (more or less finished)
Users choose sides in an all-out war, choosing to side with Zac or Riot. Overarching plot and story but mainly a chance for people to create their own spinoff comics and develop a sort of webcomic universe.
Civil War forum
Clowns, Spiders, and Ghosts: What Are You Afraid Of? (ongoing)
Anyone can draw a page about something they're scared of. Can be a comic, an illustration, a poem, whatever! Go on and share with your fellow DDers your worst fears, and find theirs out too!
Clowns, Spiders, and Ghosts: What Are You Afraid Of?
Comic Remix (Round 4 pending new organizer)
Webcomic artists exchange each other's comics to redraw selected pages in their own style.
Drunk Duck Alphabet (ongoing)
Participants get to sign up and draw a page for a letter of the alphabet (I think they can choose, as long as the letter hasn't been taken). Letters should stand for DD-related things, like "B is for Bugs" :)
Drunk Duck Alphabet
Drunk Duck Beauty Contest (finished)
Users draw their characters doing beauty pageant tests. Who will win?
Drunk Duck Beauty Contest
Drunk Duck Beauty Contest forum
Drunk Duck Big Brother (finished)
Big Brother, but in a webcomics setting, with a winner and everything.
Drunk Duck Big Brother
Big Brother forum
Drunk Duck University (ongoing)
A comic that follows users as characters in Drunkduck University - a fictional Uni which anyone can make at least an appearance in.
Drunk Duck Zombies! (participation closed, comic still being posted)
Another Marvel-inspired project, zombies are loose on Drunk Duck and the comic characters need to make things right (or get eaten). Members take turns contributing pages.
Drunk Duck Zombies!
Fightsplosion (closed participation but activities ongoing)
Characters are paired up to fight each other in drawing battles, eventually leading to a single winner.
*UPDATED* Fusion (#21 in progress, signups for #22 forthcoming)
The webcomic version of the 'telephone' game, where artists try to build a comic having only seen the panel before theirs.
Current Fusion threads can be found stickied at the top of the Networking and Community subforum
Jam Remix (status unknown)
A jam comic with a bit of story and continuity.
MS Pain (status unknown)
Draw something in MS Paint - comic, art, etc.
My No. 1 comic (ongoing)
Users send their best comic page to Crocty, who posts them in the comic account to make a sort of gallery of people's best pages. It's another way to get your comic out to new people!
My No. 1 Comic
Night of the Unliving Duck (status unknown)
Like the universal theme/story of Civil War, but with zombie infections and war against the undead.
Off Hours (ongoing, writing has been planned up to at least chapter 4, but artists/participants always needed)
A collaborative crossover comic which will have additions and lineup changes as they go along. Off Hours is based on the idea that all DD webcomics are actually television shows and all the characters are actually actors! So what would those actors be like off the sets of their own shows, and what if something brought some of them together to deal with that situation?
Off Hours forum
One Third Of Your Life Is Spent Sleeping, One Third Of Your Life Is Spent Working, And Half Of One Third Is Spent Waiting -The Question: Is It Really Your Life? (finished)
Write or draw your thoughts on a piece of lined notebook paper.
One Third of Your Life. . .
One Word (ongoing)
Everyone signs up in a list and gets to add one word (in some visual/pictorial form) onto the sentence. Then everyone sees where this ad-lib sentence takes them.
Panel By Panel (status unknown)
A jam comic. Artists take turns adding another panel into an ongoing comic, all previous panels posted as it goes along.
Project Spiderman (status unknown)
Artists take turns drawing a continuous Spiderman storyline.
Quack with the Ducks (Round 2 complete, round 3 signups in progress)
An interview project where a group of 10 people are randomly assigned to one another- each person gives an interview, each person gets an interview. Interviews are then posted in the Interviews sub-forum!
Quack with the Ducks: The Community Interview Project
RPGination (no new participants, but guest comics and back-up members accepted)
Role play characters created by each participant are drawn by each participant, one page per round.
S.T.A.R.S. Ã¢â‚¬â€œ An Adventure in Space-Time (signups and planning in progress)
A community comic where participants get to help design characters, weapons, plotlines, etc.
Superheroes (status unknown)
An ongoing and funny community project where DDers submit superhero ideas which are entertainingly misconstrued by sobergoose, the author. Great fun and good publicity!
Superheroes and Swimsuits (ongoing through summer)
Draw your original 'super' character in a swimsuit, and have them included in a collection of 'Supers Illustrated' summer swimsuit edition.
The Adventure of Experiencing Your Perspective (on hiatus)
Users submit photos of places meaningful to them or that are a part of their everyday life, and Conned makes them a part of his comic.
The Adventure of Experiencing Your Perspective
The Complete Instruction Manual to Useless Things (ongoing)
Given a topic, people contribute pages to create a humorous instruction manual.
The Complete Instruction Manual to Useless Things forum thread
The Great Exchange (ongoing)
Participants are paired up, and draw one of their partners' characters. A bit of a fan art exchange! Then pairs are shuffled and people draw new characters.
The Great Exchange
Three-Way Comic V.2 (ongoing)
Trios of participants work together to create a page- however each part of the process involves a bit of mystery and creativity. The concept designer doesn't know what will be drawn or written, the artist doesn't know what will be written, and the writer can only write based on what has been drawn.
Three-Way Comic v2
Tired Comics (ongoing)
Draw something while you're up late (whatever you like) and send it to Bocaj!
Vicious Utter Shit (ongoing)
A project where you can sign up to be a victim or a victimizer and redo other people's comics in a way that harasses or makes fun of them. It's all for fun so no participating and then getting all upset over it!
War of the Bands (underway)
a collaborative community comic about rock n' roll and bands trying to win fame and fortune...in the desert. Hilarity ensues. And violence. And random stuff.
