|As the talk with Reinder seems to be slowly winding down to an end (I could be wrong though) here's another two bits of exciting news.
Right now we're trying to organise a get-together for the Probeersel members. Initially we were even considering a comics jam but I'd really have to pull in some favors to get it arranged on this short a notice (place to host it, advertising to make sure there'll be a crowd to draw for) so I'm kind of glad that most of the members don't seem to be too enthousiastic about jamming live. But it looks like we will arrange for an informal get-together, albeit that I suspect none of our American members will be able to make it. Pity.. maybe better luck next time, who knows. In any case, I think it'll be fun, and who knows, perhaps I'll take my camera with me and get some nice pictures for you fans and/or for members who couldn't make it. We'll see. More on that later, perhaps.
Since we're keeping it informal, I won't disclose the location or the time. We wouldn't want the places we'll go to swarming with our fans, now, would we ? ;)
In other news.. we have a very promising new applicant who may just become member number TEN ! The staff is still consulting and we're hoping to get a bit more information about his plans to publish on Probeersel and about himself, but I personally am excited just with the possibility of getting him on board. His work looks great and I just love this person's name !
Heh heh. And I'll refrain from disclosing any further information on that, as well, since nothing's official yet.
Yes, I am a cruel, cruel man.

|Readers of Reinder Dijkhuis' blog know it, visitors of the Stripliefhebbers Forum probably noticed it, and I guess I should report it here as well: Reinder and I are chatting on storyline structures, webcomics, and our own comics (Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan and The Grim DotCom) here. No idea how long our chat will last, but right now I get the impression it's going well - I like Reinder's take on things and I feel I have some things to add to the dialogue as well from my Grim DotCom experiences and from founding and leading Probeersel.com so far. I'll quote Reinder:
If you can speak Dutch, read it, and throw peanuts at us from the sideline.
|I reported earlier that Nozzman was trying to find out if there were enough artists interested to join in a live comics jam on the Atlantis festival. Unfortunately, not enough artists showed interest, so the whole thing's off.
Bummer. Maybe better luck next year.
Any interest in perhaps organising a live event just for the Probeersel peeps ? I know the Cul de Sac would be interested in hosting it. Well, just let me know - other comic artists are welcome to sign up as well, of course !

|Can be nice. I don't know how this stuff is generally implemented, but if the streams go trhough the probeersel.com server, it might take too much bandwidth. But let's not worry too much about this now, there are more important things, such as a new site engine and RSS feeds.
Btw, hi out there, I'm a non-artist member of Probeersel.com, helping out with the technical parts :)

|Here's a thought for future functionality on the site that I thought I'd post. I'm noticing more and more web comics sites have webcams sections. Could be cool - webcams of our artists if they like, or even the possibility of our fans to add their cams as well ?
What do you guys think ?
