Welcome to the almost-too-incredible-to-believe BETA version of the new Dilbert web site! We spent most of the past year, and a small fortune, to unwrap all the pent up Dilbert goodness and provide it to you for free, embracing the new realities of intellectual property on the web.
The site is still in BETA. You’re getting a preview of future wonders. Please be patient. This is a generation beyond any comic web site, and it gets bumpy when you pass beyond the rim. Take a sneak peek at these new features:
PUNCH LINES: Write your own punch lines for Dilbert strips – just type them right into the panel – and e-mail them to friends!
Soon you will be able to write the entire strip, collaborating with others, in what we call Group Mash! (One person writes the first panel, another writes the second, and so on.) Readers can vote the best ones to the top of the heap. That way you get the attention and credit you need to make life worth living.
Starting today, mocking the idiots in your workplace is a competitive sport! This is going to be fun. I’ll participate in the Punch Lines and Group Mashes too. Look for my contributions under username ScottAdams.
ANIMATION: We’ve animated Dilbert online. Several strips are already done and we plan to add one per day. You have to hear the new voice for Dogbert.
FAVORITE LISTS: Create lists of your favorite Dilbert comics and share with others.
ARCHIVE EXPANDED: Now the free Dilbert archive extends back to 2001. We’re working on putting the entire archive online.
COLOR: All online strips are in living color. They look sensational.
SEARCH: Filter the archive by favorite characters. For example, find all the comics in the archive featuring Dogbert or Catbert or Asok, etc., plus any combination of characters.
DILBERT BLOG: My personal blog is moving to this page. And you’ll be able to vote on comments, so the wisest and funniest float to the top.
The site has so many features and options it will take you a while to discover them. Send me your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
