Pixel Joint - About Us

Pixel Joint is all about the pixel art community. The site was started in September 2004 by sedgemonkey, but the tools were not in place to submit pixel art until December 7, 2004. Since the site has opened to submissions the gallery has grown steadily, a forum was opened and a couple of collaborative projects (The Joint and Lil Dudes) were given homes.

Here's the current crop of mods that keep the site going...

Like many other pixel art fans, sedgemonkey's love of the pixel was rooted in the glory days of 8 and 16 bit Nintendo/Sega console games and the arcade classics of the 80s and 90s. Big surprise there.

Pixel Joint Thanks

We here at Pixel Joint could never have made this site click without the daily efforts of the PJ members and admins and we really appreciate it. There's about a ga-jillion other people we'd like to thank for helping track down bugs, providing content, submitting pixel art and just generally cool people who post cool comments. You know who you are.

We would like to specifically thank...

For creating the pixel art smilies we used in the WYSIWYG editor and forum in v1 and v2 of PJ.
Brian the Great
For early mod help on PJ in its formative years.
Dynamic Drive
For the super simple drop down menu code in the navigation which works flawlessly across all modern browsers. I've been visiting it for years for JavaScript ideas.

iSTVAN
For creating the 'nerd' in the default PJ web design.
jQuery Tools
Some of the easiest to install and tiny jQuery tools around.
Larwick
For contributing the awards icons that give us all a boost in the darkest of days.
Peppermint Pig
For his v2 Pixel Joint design revisions.
pixelblink
For his amazing work on 'The Joint', icon packs, screensaver, tutorials and his efforts at trying to keep the PJ site up and running in the early years.
samson
For his help keeping the Wee project alive (and for creating 150+ kick ass Wees).
ThePixelChick
For her fun little Flash memory game.
[thUg]
For contributing a fantastic set of rank icons for PJ based on the initial set Ensellitis contributed and following Larwick's trophy style.
Web Wiz Forums
For the only decent ASP forum solution.
