Developing a website such as SDk and the magazine it hosts takes time. That's why we think contributors and others interested in what we are doing deserve to be kept informed on our progress. This page has been designed to do exactly that: to keep you up-to-date as to where we are. We're pleased to have you with us.

The trials and tribulations of cutting-edge website developmentSDk Updates ->

Sat 07 Feb, 2009.

Chris and Daryl spent a lot of time liaising with contributors for issue 01, which is due to be published early April. We also discussed and determined several aspects of contributor relations, which we hope will be rewarding for all involved in SDk.

We developed a formatting relationship between in-mag articles and their web-based popup continuations. The use of innovative popups allows SomethingDark's magazine format to flow seamlessly into web-based structures, thus negating the restrictions of traditional print publications.

We also developed additional mechanisms for displaying relevant references for the currently viewed page of SDk magazine, and the linking of those references to off-mag resources.

Building on work done over the last two weeks, we began developing strategies for making SDk a financially viable venture. We recognise that in order for SDk to exist, it needs to generate an income.
