About downthetubes forum Blog Posts

The section below is an amalgam of the latest group blog posts by individual members. I'd suggest that rather than using it as a blog, think about using it as a "PR" spot for your projects - several members already do this.
This area only displays blog posts actually posted within the forum -- it can't display posts from any RSS feeds you may have added to your own page from your own blog or LiveJournal page, say.

Our main site downthetubes.net is now be the main point of focus for delivering British comic news and views, alongside this forum.

There's been a major design change, which is very much a work in progress.

The old DTT site is also nestling in the background here - some pages might be missing a few images due to moving this site to new servers, but the text and interviews are all there for you to enjoy. The aim is to slowly incorporate these into the new site over time.

Thanks to everyone who offered us help and also made small donations that helped tremendously enable in the move to a new service.
