Find your Soul Geek
Dino Andrade, who does the voice for Skull on the PvP animated shorts has started a geek-only dating site.
looks less like a dating site and more like a convention site.
male seeking female replaced with fan-guy seeking fan-girl
The site is free to join which allows you access to most of the site. You can recieve messages and respond to those messages which is really the most important part of a dating service. But i think you need to be a paid member to send out the initial message. The site faq is unclear about this.
Paid memberships run from $9.95 to $14.95 and gives you access to create and blog and fan fic, space to add plenty of pictures, and 7 live chat rooms. Again, the FAQ doesn't say what the difference between the prices are.
There's a 'dealer room' which currently has 1 tee for sale, promoting the site.
Currently, their search engine only works with US postal codes so us out of country-ers are out of luck when it comes to using one of their search engines. Fortunately we're still able to navigate the site and connect with others in the same city.
What are you afraid of?
A new community project has popped up on Drunk duck right in time for Hallowe'en. It's called "Clowns, Spiders and Ghosts...What are you afraid of?
This url is too large to show on the front page.
Created by TheMidge28, the idea behind this is to have different artists post comics about their fears, be it their own or someone elses. Midge posts new comics every second or third day.
Midge admits coming up with the idea one night while drifting to sleep.
The only guidelines to follow are the page size should be roughly the size of a standard legal sized letter and should have the phrase "I am afraid of..." along with the name of your fear.

5. Design a New Logo For Jack's Webcomic Reviews and Win A Prize
Jack's Webcomic Reviews is looking for a new logo, and you can win some stuff in doing so. First, the rules:
"It can be any style, any theme, with just one little catch. You must incorporate a chimp. That simple. One chimp, two chimps, three, four, however many you want, doing whatever you want, somewhere in the logo design. It also has to be 638px(width)by 237px(height),in jpeg format. You can have a chimp at a desk, chimps at a computer, heck, chimps doing Pilates, I don't care as long as it's original."
The prizes are: your comic reviewed (if it isn't already), a month of advertising on the site and a T-shirt with the logo on it.
