d6 Collab Open to New Beta Testers for Limited Time!

Join now before registration closes again. It’s free!

Good morning (barely)!

I have been working super overtime (seriously) for the last week to redesign, restructure, & prepare d6 Collab for active beta membership, and we are now accepting new members for a limited time only! Join now for free before registration closes again, and help us beta test this revolutionary new social network for content creators, artists, patrons, & art lovers alike! What better way is there to kick off a long weekend than by exploring a brand new social network? 😉

Join while you still can. It’s free!

What can you do on d6 Collab?

Just about anything you can do on the other social networks you are already familiar with, & more!:

  • Have your own profile. (with profile & cover images)
  • Make connections.
  • Post updates. (text, image, video, & audio)
  • Full privacy control.
  • Interact with other members & their content. (favorite & comment on activity)
  • Send public & private messages.
  • Join groups. (more groups coming soon)
  • Chat in our public chat room.
  • Fully responsive mobile site on which you can even take pictures directly with your phone’s camera app. (more on mobile site & app development below)
  • Much more to come! (stay tuned)

Looking for a d6 mobile app? I’ve been working on it, but it’s still in development, as I am not actually a mobile developer myself. In the meantime, follow these simple steps to add d6 Collab to your android’s home screen.

  • Open d6collab.com (or the activity stream, your own profile, etc.) in Chrome.
  • Tap the menu button.
  • Tap “add to home screen”.
  • And that’s it. You now have a handy-dandy d6 icon right on your phone! ?

To add d6 Collab to the home screen of your iPhone: (I had to look this up, as I don’t have an iPhone.)

  • Load d6collab.com (or the activity stream, your own profile, etc.) in Safari.
  • Tap the arrow icon at the bottom of the screen.
  • Tap “add to home screen”.
  • All done. You should now have a handy-dandy d6 icon right on your phone! ?

(It may not be the most elegant solution, but it gets the job done for now, and the site is fully responsive & functional in mobile browsers.)

You can help support the development of our mobile apps by purchasing a blog or portfolio right now. Or by making a donation of any size below. Every little bit helps, and I appreciate it more than I can express in words! Here are more than a few Donor Perks I’ve put together to show my gratitude!

Personal Info

Donation Total: $5

d6 Collab is obviously an extremely small community out of necessity right now, so it is crucial that our beta testers be as active as possible at first. Please be patient, as the site will likely not be bustling just yet, and that’s okay. Steady growth is sustainable growth! But you can help it grow a little faster, and I am beyond grateful for your support!

Advantages of d6 Collab:

Also, please be patient with me & any technical difficulties we may have in the beginning. I am still the only designer, developer, & administrator of the entire d6 Collab community & network at present, so please exercise patience when reporting a bug. (Come to think of it, I’m the only “employee” there is at all, at the moment.) 🙂

Additionally, d6 Collab must remain in an exclusive private (or closed) beta phase until we raise enough money to accommodate more members & a public beta launch. We appreciate your support during this time & help spreading the word about our upcoming crowdfunding campaign before, during, & after its launch! Please subscribe here for updates on it:

Join now for free while you still can! I look forward to meeting you! 🙂

Don’t want to help beta test at this time, but still interested in joining? Awesome! Please sign up for our membership waiting list below.

Thanks so much for your interest!

I am also considering offering certain features “a la carte” to those who don’t want or need a full plan or don’t need all of the features included in the next plan up. There are other monetization models I’m looking into, as well, but this is the most complete at this time.

As you can see, I am looking at having plans ranging from free up to ~$20 per month or ~$199.99 per year. Prices may be subject to change depending upon feature modifications, additions, or eliminations, as well as depending upon how much funding we raise.

But why wait? If you are interested in joining d6 Collab when membership launches, get in on the ground floor now! You can reserve your exclusive early bird access right now AND get your own portfolio (designed by me) up and running NOW by making a donation at one of three levels. Learn more here! Your donations will be used to continue and finish developing the d6 Collab Artists’ Community.

Though I have given a lot of thought to monetization, just between us, it is my dream to raise enough money to offer EVERYTHING to ALL members for FREE, at least for the first year, but we would have to raise A LOT of money to make that a reality! I honestly don’t know how possible it is, but let’s see what we can do!

If you believe in what I’m building, my mission, and my vision for the future of d6 Collab, please help me spread the word! Share this information with anyone and everyone you know who might be interested. Let’s create some buzz and excitement before we launch our crowdfunding campaign! I greatly need and genuinely appreciate your support!

Content Protection for Artists

I have sufficiently and officially disabled right-clicking and highlighting on all devices, across ALL d6 Collab sites, which is a huge step toward helping artists of all kinds protect their content! 😀 I just have to figure out how to exclude certain page elements (so visitors can right click on links again if they like, for example), prevent copying of single blog posts & individual site pages, disable certain key combinations (i.e. ctrl+c, ctrl+x, etc.), and make images even more secure. I have also finished building in the appropriate types of licensing, so artists can apply them directly to their uploads and choose exactly how their work is used, shared, altered (or not), distributed, etc. I’m super excited about my progress so far and can’t wait to keep making these improvements to bring you the best, most artist friendly community possible!
