Lightbulb New Department of Death Site Launches!

The new and much improved Department of Death site launched today at the new address:


Many months of work have gone into the site, which was completely rebuilt from scratch with a completely new design and site structure.


The most notable new feature is the user registration system which allows visitors to sign up in a matter of seconds with an account that is associated with all of their fan work, comments and profile information for the rest of the members to see. With their profile, any member will be able to submit fan work, update their own fan work, post comments on other members' fan work and news articles, fill out a profile so that everyone else can find out a little more about them and set up their preferences for viewing the site. All of the member's stats, such as how many comments they have posted or how many fan fictions they have contributed, are all kept track of with the profile.


Browsing the site is now much easier than before with the new customisable front page which shows you all of the latest content to be added to the site, as well as the three quick links at the top of each page for viewing a printer friendly version of the current page, adding the page to your favourites or sending the page to a friend


Adding fan work and comments is now as easy as it could ever be, with the ability to submit and edit content instantly from your account, so there's no need to worry about making mistakes. And if you don't notice, our new team of moderators will be able to inform you or even correct the mistake for you. Forum style BB-code is now used in comments and fan work. Tags such as [b][/b] and url tags all work.


After all that work the site is now finished and ready for use, already with a massive collection of fan work. We urge everyone to sign up now and take a look round.

Some content from the old site is still to be transferred over from the old site (e.g. easter eggs), so it will remain open until everything has been carried over. But for now, enjoy the new site

Awesome site. 5/5 from me.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

Thanks for the comments . If anyone submitted fan art to the old site and hasn't signed up yet, chances are it's been added to the new site under 'Unregistered Members' Fan Art', but if you sign up just let me know and I'll link the fan art to your new acccount.
