I've spent way more time developing PixelJoint than I ever thought I would, but it's a fun site to work on. Hopefully I'll get to a good stopping point in a few months.

You had paging working properly before then something happened. I can't see page 2+ in my gallery.

Another thing we need to have as admin is the ability to see all info regarding new pixels before approving them. Such as.. being able to see the full version, icon descriptions, etc

I'll fix the paging... not sure what got hosed there. The admin tool needs a lot of work still.

I'm not sure about this but there are mods out there (for other forums not sure about Web Wiz Forums) like store mod. So people can create their own galleries and sell their pixel art work (just some small stuff that they won't even use) for pixel money (not real money, just credits users will get through the bot by posting and stuff like that). It's probably not that necessary but just a suggestion

I think we have something that will be kind of like "money" on the site which will be awards for various silly things.  Haven't had a chance to think it through yet.  Artists can link directly to their pixeltees on the gallery site which will hopefully make some money for some pixel artists.

Plus we've already go the points system. Personally I think thats enough, anything else is just masturbation. Figuratively. Although it was worth suggesting Zoomrix.

Just noticed a bug: the statistics (pixel pieces mostly) sometimes say a larger number than the actual pieces posted. Might be worth fixing.

You are absolutely right about that bug Brian. When people post and then delete or have there works rejected the number isn't adjusted. I'll fix that soon, but for now I'll just run a script to resync the numbers.

One suggestion I have is a bit more less chaotic links section.  And maybe with a few more features, such as broken link reporting and/or site content changed, I have run into a few old pixel sites that have totally changed their format. 

And since there are so many links there, maybe either a seperate page for each category or maybe using some sort of script that will call each section into the same page.

I think PixelJoint could have skinning support. Hell isn't it the perfect site for it? And then just have like a template people could download and build a skin with, and then they submit it somewhere and an admin approves it to be added? I reckon that would be hella cool.

That would be cool. We are moving the site to a new design sometime soon.  Maybe we can incorporate your skinning idea when we do that.

Kankki if you're talking about the forums, just press shift + left-click

Anyway, talking of zoom, I'm probably just being really picky, but in the main gallery, when you zoom in, the zoom buttons get pushed down the page by the enlarged picture, and you have to scroll down in order to use the buttons again. If they were above the picture, you could quickly zoom in and out and the buttons would stay in the same place. Sorry if I'm sounding too pedantic about it, it was just something I thought of.

Way to go smart guy -- I had to look up what pedantic meant.

I think you definitely have a point with the zoom getting pushed around with the zoom function.  I just can't get the zoom thing above the pic to look good. It looks like the art is wearing a hat.  Any suggestions?

Instead of buttons with a solid background, how about text or images for it with a transparent background?

What about being able to create your own folders and sort your work in your gallery, making it neater for people to browser your work and look at similar stuff. That way you can group things in the order you want instead of having similar things spread apart from the date they were submitted.

Maybe do something like a link in a users profile leading to their gallery on the main site? Because I don't know how long I've spent looking for something that an artist made so I can just view the rest of his gallery, and still haven't found him Or maybe have a search option for searching an artist.

EDIT: Opps. I just read over the list and noticed that that idea is already on there. Silly me.

DarkAuron: I think I understand what you mean and I like it. We'll see what Sedge says.

Zoomrix: there's a "gallery" button just below each members post. Plus, a member can choose to add the link as their homepage in their profile. Also, you can search for a member by clicking the members button on the main site.

OH weird... Thanks PB.

Before when I clicked that button it seemed to go to my gallery. Sorry for the useless post.

EDIT: Well at least to make this post worthwhile I have a small suggestion. How about making the links in the link section have a tareget="_blank" because I still want to stay in Pixel Joint and view the link at the same time and sometimes I"m just lazy to right click > Open in new window...

DarkAuron:  The folder idea for pixel art is a great idea and I will definitely look into doing that.

Zoomrix:  I will be sure to add the "_blank" to the links section.

Btw, sometimes I forget what I'm doing with developing the site so don't feel bad if your suggestion takes a long time to implement.  Feel free to remind me in this thread if your suggestion has been overlooked for a few weeks.

how about a watch topic option, so u get an e-mail when someone posts
on the topic, unless there is one and i have missed it, but it would be
handy, it would keep people comeing back to check their threads
instead of what they do someties which is just post and never return, or
if theres a colab your waiting for people to do some things, or even in
here for you sedge so u can tell when someone has made a sugestion
without haveing 2 come on the forum to check.

when looking at the date of a piece submission on the gallery its
formatted to the US month/day/year whereas in uk we have day/
month/year and it just confuses me. perhaps all people viewing in
the uk get the date formatted to their usual.

I just had an idea! i know this is possible on some sites, and should be
for pixel joint not shore tho. but when u chose your template for the site
could it be possible that there is an advanced option, and you can put
inthe hex values for what colour you want bits to be like text then a box
2 put in a hex value, then background and u can put in another value
for that then table bg then table headers links ect ect then mayb a
dropdown thing to chose the colour of the top pixlejoint image.

it would make the site much more custimisable for people who want a
pasiffic theme

Rifts:  I know what you mean, but I don't think we are going to have an individual element customization anytime soon... I just don't have time to write it and anyone can submit a template that suits them if they like.

Shark:  I realize that the date/time thing is very specific to the Western US/Canada, but I haven't had time to add time offset code to the gallery site yet.  I promise I will get to it someday.

he means you can do a seach for posts that have been made by a
certain user, so for example if i wanted to find all the topics i started to
get to some old stuff, i could search my name and find all topics not
that i have posted in but what i have started.

Hi guys, I've searched in the board for this problem but couldn't find anything: with Firefox (1.0.7) the zoom function doesn't work correctly, the box with the pic gets higher but not wider, resulting with the pic being cut (with big pics after one or two zooms it is quite evident) and the scroll is not very friendly.

I find quite strange that nobody had this problem though (or was just me being not able to find the right topic?)...

Other than that, thanks to Sedgemonkey and the staff for this GREAT site, I don't know how I missed it for so long (well, it wasn't very polite to make the first post with a bug report only!)

Keep up the good pixel!

I think Snader was talking about the main PixelJoint site, not the forum... and I agree with him. Sometimes it's kinda confusing.

I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but when I return to a gallery after viewing a piece of work by using Firefox's back button, the page's content is cut off. I can give a screenshot of it if you want.
