just an idea...
Hello, I'm not an artist, but I hope you'll find my idea to be interesting.
So, http://blackboard.byethost2.com is a web site I've created just for fun. It's a very simple site: black square canvas, everybody can draw on it whatever he or she wants and save. Everybody tries to fill its emptiness. But the point is that with every new drawing saved the previous drawings are darkened so the canvas is "bottomless" - finally, it "absorbs" everything, every your drawing, every your idea. So we try to fill the emptiness of the black square completely - and we can't What do you think about it?
Now everything is saved. Nothing will be wiped into the void. You can navigate through the history of the board.

Thank you all for good opinions
I know there are a lot of various sites for collective drawing that are much more cool and advanced. I don't pretend to compete with them. Though I hope it has an interesting individual feature - vanishing drawings.
In general, the whole conception of the site as the infinite black square canvas seems to me to be very symbolic. It's like our Universe. Without a consciousness mind it's dark and empty. And the mind tries to fill the emptiness of the Universe with an infinite number of various ideas and concepts (like a flying penis, for example ). So, a bit of fun and joke, a bit of some more deep ideas - it's a good mixture, I think

Perhaps you should put a link to it in your sig, otherwise we are eventually going to forget about it. If I'm regularly reminded of the site, I'll regularly go draw something on it. :-)

Nice: now we have turned this thread into a "post-your-blackboard-contribution" thread. So the board is after all not getting wiped clean... :-)

I used to participate in these, but the problem is people will just wipe it out and draw genitals.

Lol this site is insane. I leave for a day and I come back and the penises are gone and there are fat chicks now :s

February 12th, 2012 #23

I offer you an improved version of the site. Now everything will be saved! Nothing will be wiped into the void
Now you can navigate through the history of the board. With every pressing of the button "Show me the past" you'll move step by step, picture by picture towards the past.
You can see five saved drawings simultaneously on the board. I think it's enough - more than five would give a mishmash.
Hope it will work properly without bugs.
