The project

Lapin.org was created a long time ago, in 2001. It's the french version of a lot of webcomics, made in french or translated from english, like Elftor, WhiteNinja, Red Meat, BTC, SMBC, Formal Sweatpants, xkcd, Dr Fun, etc.

 

Rabbit comics was created a short while after that.

 

This is Lapin.org in 2001.

 

 

Thoses sites run on a variety of platforms : dotclear, SPIP, phpBB, Arfoo, and a lot of hand-made code. Some are obsolete, some outdated, and they're very complicated to manage.

 

 

Above : Lapin.org in 2003.

 

We wrote lots of the pages ourselves. Below, Lapin.org now.

We need some code We need a brand new modern CMS, after a lot of thoughts we decided to go with Wordpress. That means we need to migrate a lot of websites and thousands of pages. the  "stripeuse" It's a rabbit specific developpment, the one we're going to keep and modernise. But it's a lot of work.

 

A brand new design

We'll bne working with Jane Secret, a great graphic designer we work with sometimes. She did some of the design of our publications, like this collection.

 

Une plate-forme multilingue

We'll be translating some of our best french webcomics : Michael Guérin, La dissonance des corps, La vie des Gens and many more.

We already work with some professionnal translators.

 

Un projet secret

We'll tell you when this is signed ! It's great project for the webcomics community.

 

To sum this up

We need :

1 - a Wordpress CMS, and moving everything on it.

2 - a great brand new design design

3 - boost up the "stripeuse", and a multiplateforms site ( for smartphones, tablets, etc.)

4 - A multi-langages platform

5 - a brand new server

6 - a secret project (hiiiiiiiiiiiiiii !)

 

Lots of volontiers will still be working on Lapin, so all this will cost only 5000 euros (it's not that much for such a big makeover).

Why fund it?

The 5000 euros are for :

- 2000 euros for the graphic designer  ;

- 2000 euros for the computer guys

- 1000 euros for a brand new server and the secret project.

 

And we get more ?

To sum this up, the more money we get, the more comics we translate. Period.
