I overstimated Zizka and raven C;
I'll promote bloodshed as means to see who's in the right!
Oy! Don't give me that. Where were you for blink's 5 hour rant on why anything with more than 32 colors needs to be pruned from the gallery?
We are looking into something now for the serious, stable, satisfied, sober and jal lovers <3
You can only be so much but all of them at once!?!?!!? What's next requirement, interest in pixel art!?
Indeed, everything but the 'pixel' hour' :D
No one to blame but yourself if you didn't know the right hours to come in.
Seriously though, the pool was like clockwork in it's prime. It was like a theatre stage show, all you had to do was memorize the times and dates. 8-10: classic shakespearian plays, 10-12: shadow puppet theater, 12-4: flavor of the month comedian, 4-9: technical jargon lecture, 9-3: drunken karaoke, 3-8: strippers galore.
All anyone had to do was show up on a consistantly regular basis and they'd catch on pretty quick on what heppens when.
PJs IRC channel was supposed to be serious but it quicky became all...
I'm emo, I'm horny, I'm drunk and I hate jal convos :/
I've been like super itching for a pixel art-themed IRC channel and I'd actually been meaning to ask around in here if there was one. This chatbox is nice, but feels more like a free-for-all forum thread than a chat, y'know? It's a shame that #pixeljoint and #pixelart are so empty...
Recently I notice that there is a function on the page: P
So says the person who's name is poop, and if he's an asshole you guys would make a great team!
Hm-m. I'm looking for someone, who can host my Image Specs (akira.selfip.org/pj/) on another server. The server, that I'm currently use has troubles with DNS resolving. And I can't fix this, because it's not my server (it's a home-machine of my buddy), and I have limited rights on it (e.g. can't edit DNS settings). I don't know why, but server frequently looses Pixlejoint's DNS record and refuses to load images from it.
@Daruda You're kidding about us being a bunch of buddies right? Zizka is a top tier asshole.
You're kidding about not needing moderation right?
Otherwise there won't be anyone to stop me from pushing caca's button.
Yeah, so shut the hell up .
So I'm the only one who doesn't like video streams?
Yes! Good point, the delay of 30+ seconds is annoying.
I would be interested in watching you and others (including broadcasting myself) do some tutoring or similiar.
BUT im not sure this is what you wanted, please elaborate and we will find a solution!
Awesome, my message does'n posted in first time, so I need to reproduce it...
I think broadcasting from twitch/livestream are bad idea. There are two reasons:
1. After some "modifications" they become very unstable. Many users have troubles, when watching streams. (And me too) Buffering video, etc.
2. The really big delay between "what's going on" and "what people see". Abount ~40 seconds.
Anyway, I'm updated Image Specs. akira.selfip.org/pj/ Now it have a settings panel, where user can define, how to highlight colors. Also, I'm added URL changing when program loads images to inspect, so you can share inspection URL without any problems.
I'm think it's ready to normal public release, because I can't find any more bugs in realisation. (exclude error firing, when I'm change URL, but if all works properly, who cares? :) )
#pixeljoint @ slashnet is quiet empty
#pixelart @ afternet is also quiet empty but it has active mods. I altered the topic to welcome any pj'ers that might drop by!
Does slashdot have any channel management bots incase i would volunteer to mod that one? :p
I'd say IRC, because is fairly easy to set up. For videos, twitch or livestream works fairly well.
There is chatango too. It can be adapted to any site and can work alone, it's free and it's easy to register. You can even chat as an anon.
To say the truth, there is really the need for a mod? We're a bunch of buddies...
Edit: Well here there is an exemple http://chatango.com/creategroup
You can make a full screen tab.
Sample chat if it isn't pinned to a site: http://pixeljointchat.chatango.com/
Are you talking about msn messenger or the email service? I thought msn messenger was dead D^:
It is and it isn't. Microsoft owns Skype so you can import your MSN contacts and vice versa, but you can keep them independant if you want. My MSN contacts are still on MSN, my Skype contacts are still on Skype, I don't need to mesh everything into on giant glob of everything.
I think a skype or google hangout thing would be really cool! I would be up for it. Were you think of having it for like a planned chat, or something more like the IRC where you just drop in?
Trop facile! X^D
Msn is skype now, I think.

Depends on what you want to accomplish.
Twitch and Livestream are good if you want to do a little show and tell session. Youtube also now allows live streaming (but eh Youtube and it's copyright bullshit). Skype or something you'll have to constantly upload and download images.
If you just want to replace the IRC then Skype, Google, AIM, MSN, all of that is good.
Only use Skype.
I think it is a great idea.
The "boring" part could be the one way communication.
Streamer can speak to everyone but then everyone else has to chat.
Despite that, twitch-art sessions are quiet nice. I used to draw while watching/listening/glancing and it felt like doing the dishes with the TV on in the other room
5/5 would do the dishes erry day!
I'm trying to guage wether PJers would be into such a thing or would it get all...me, me, me and OT
What is #pixelart @ afternet ?
Is that PJs original IRC channel?
In regards to IRC
I am in #pixelart @ afternet, its not as active as the programming channels but atleast i am there 24/7 to greet people.
Jalonso, i used to have the habit of watching peoples twitch streams while they where either working or "educating". Its pretty nice.
IRC is all text tho.
I'm thinking about pixelling, pixelarts classes, features with voice or text :?
PJ IRC is down because the peeps who Modded don't anymore :(
I think i don't know both, but i would prefer a Skype call.
IRC all the way Jal!
Which reminds me, i need to add #pixeljoint @ whereveritis to my list.
Questions for all you young and cool techie hipsters.
Are PJers likely to already be on Google Hangout or Skype call thingies?
Is one more popular than the other or better in some way?
That looks great, cheers!
Now that's extra fantastic!
I'll add a setting panel, where you'll be able to customize highlighting colors (background/foreground)
Ugh. Leave the color red. That would just make things difficult for highlighting dark colors.
Most excellent! The gif support is amazing, and so is the color highlighting.
Would it be possible that the highlighted color appears as it is? Red for all is a bit confusing.
Edit: also include the anayzed image url in the page url, so we can smart link?
This makes my ears feel weird...
No need jal, I saw it. Awesome stuff :) I've kinda moved on to different projects, so it's great to see someone picking up where I left off.
Every time I use the spec tool I think it would be awesome if it had this function. I'm pretty excited that you work exactly on that!
Indeed, that's fantastic :^)
okokokokok c beau
Is it possible to create a button in the gallery along with the 'Fave It' and 'View Artist' that says like 'Analyze' that just links you to the pj image specs page? I realize the coding is a mess, so I would assume not.
That is awesome!
When ready we'll update with your version with all the new toys.
I will PM pie to let him know about this, k.
It would be cool is hitting return key it would make the submit button work.
Hey guys, checkout my last experiment (about 12 hours of clear-time): akira.selfip.org/pj/ An advanced PJ Image Specs (original: wouterpleizier.nl/pj/). It's supports color highlighting (just roll over on percentage of color) and can handle animated gifs. And it works almost on pure JS (exclude image loading, because of cross-domain policy restrictions). It's still WIP, by the way. Small editing remains.
making pixel art really makes me happy
I meant to say that you're were putting a lot of effort into trying to show how much my reply had no importance. Sorry, I didn't express myself properly, English isn't my first language.
Besides, your English is actually quite good and I don't think you don't care about grammar either as your messages are usually well written.
Je pensais que je pouvais t'agacer comme tu agaces les autres mais apparemment non. Autant pour moi. Pila je vais écryre RAV en let' majoukul justeuh pour kisash que j'parle d'lui mais y pou-rat pas mett' sça ds gougeul traduxion. Here this should rekindle our flame, a friendly reminded that we're both Children of the Mother land.
@datmuffinman: I got one more, It's in China this time. Hold on to your hat, it's pretty hardcore.
It's not scary, it's annoying because PJ is held together by 10 year old html codes which is the internet equivalent of band aids and duct tape.
This place is woefully out of date. Not sure if this is something worth bragging about but I've stumbled across more bugs/errors than anyone else on PJ, at least anyone who puclically announced it.
*shakes hipster ipod & latte* Get with the times! Three point oh!!! D:<
Shit. It's scary. 0_0
It seems that the very fabric of the chatterbox bends and vexes under the very presence of some of our pj members... interesting...
But the forums is where the original chatterbox is. See!?
Also it's 4 in the morning and I just woke up. Hooray for fucked up sleeping patterns. \o/
Haha you're right little ratty! Actually I've never been on a forum of my goddamn life so I was a bit confused. And I'm new here, too. But now I visited it to familiarize myself and now I think I'm good to go! :^3
Thanks for your concern!
"I don't really feel like keeping track of the forums 24/7"
"I don't feel like visiting the forums 1 time and checking the sticked topics"
though every-other-monthly updates would be good to generate interest. front page link like the weeklies have, even.
I think they are. it's just super rare. they take a long time to finish before another starts, and inbetween there doesn't seem much reason to mention it. I too think they should pimp it a bit more often with a little reminder on what's done and what's still needed. it's crown jewels of the community after all.
So these projects are never mentioned in the news? I don't really feel like keeping track of the forums 24/7.
yeah, the collab projects here are super awesome.
since PJ's backend code was reworked, whenever posts happen in the same minute, their order has another criteria than time. doesn't seem to take into account a timeframe smaller than a minute anymore. I had it happen very often.
Wow, that's fantastic, and I see you're already there.
I'll probably still "participate" in some challenges, but I'll try the other one at the same time.
Actually.. if you want to participate in something for Pixel Joint's community that has nothing to do with ribbons or competition, this might be perfect for you:
Also that really sux about the ripped art :(
:O the chatbox is breaking again.. There's no way I posted before you.
I'll probably "participate" in some challenges but by staying apart from the competition and not submitting to the contest directly. I don't need little ribbons.
Yeah, you don't need ribbons.. but you do need a bib.
Ok so heres who's gona win this weeks challenge. A nordic oak tree sprite. Some weird jungle plant chick's face drawn as an anthropomorphic fruit, and a mushroom man because that's original.
PS: I do actually like this weeks challenge
ah, the bum rush theory. that research destroyed my family. I so happen to look for a new guinea pig. anyone? it's a job well compensated. you're attached to many compensators. it's an electrifying experience. opportunity of a life time.
Man thats annoying! I would write them a strongly worded email if I were you. They butchered your peice too, its horrifying! All those streched and scaled pixels, they're going to give me nightmares! Honestly, the game looks like it either 1. Had a couple of artists that didn't communicate well and their styles are jarringly different, or 2. the more likely story, there's a lot of ripped art. I mean look at the boulders in the background, they look so out of place.
Uh? «I don't care about soccer.» «I don't care about the murder rate in brazil.» «I don't care about your imperfect grammar.»
See? Sorry to bum rush your theory.
come on, caca.
you don't want to turn this into another one of zizka's shit stories!
I once had a guinea pig. it was sis, bro, mom, dad and my best friend.
and then my most important colleague in science projects.
now I don't have a guinea pig anymore.
You can't make a message saying you don't care about something, it's a condraction in terms.
On come! Where's your humour sense!
I don't have a sister. Well, not on PJ, at least.
that's what sisters do, caca, taking care of each other.
@zizka Funny that you care so much about correcting no one else but me. I usually don't care when I see you making mistakes.
Oh and look.
Siikikala let me know that there's an app on the Google Play store using my 'serenity' piece as game art assets without my permission. In case anyone else's graphics or work has been ripped in this game, I thought I'd let everyone else know too.
They didn't even do a good job of using my art, either.
jal, you scary wild animal, you know what you did! now sister zizka is worried for kid caca.
I don't know if antialiasing a huge scene is my favorite or least favorite part of pixeling. It's just... relaxfuriating.
My bad. Not shouting. I figured y'alls know when I cap it means attention.
*maybe I should post pics for these from now on :/
Jal is so bad at shouting, from the perspective of a heavy metal growler, that's prolly the only thing upsetting. =p
I know you're still kid, your understanding of grammar says so . Also, I know you're easily upset so I don't want jalonso being rude and shouting at you, you being a girl and all.
I appreciate the sentiment, Colonel Crybaby.<3 I toured with very noisy bands, so I can handle noise very well.
...Why are you putting me apart from the children? It's like you're implying that I'm not a child anymore >:^U
Mother Nature gives birth to both trees and sharks. Fair.
Ay aye! From this point forth all emotions thoughts and feelings shall be conveyed via links!
No shouting in the CB please. Think about the children and caca.
NO PICS IN THE CB, PLEEEEEZ!
Don't tell me... you never watched Ace Ventura 0_0
@president, In my case, I'm staring at the screen 50% of the time. Excited to see your piece btw.
This may end up being the longest I've ever worked on a pixel piece, if you include the dawdling, which is 90% of the time.
whoa. What's this? jim's head coming out of an elephant butt?
edit: btw, can't wait for dumb and dumber 2 haha
behold.. the kfc kid! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBw-RWr60Ag
