Oh no, an MMO. 

Profile's looking sweet though!

Who is this yes-I-do fella and why does he/she kick so much ass?

pyrometal- I won't anymore, just joking ^-^.
(I'll wait for you to go offline )
  @Eggy- Let's say everyone only votes itself, and when it does it votes 5/5, then all the pieces will end up being in the same spot. It means that not voting for yourself is like being one step behing :p.

pyrometal (Level 7 Assassin) @ 5/20/2017 20:35

Careful now, the mods are watching

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/20/2017 19:00

@Eggy-Same man. (Worked on chrome this time, but it wasn't working when I tried last week-I was trying to put previews on my profile).

It's also perfect motivation for leveling up. Every other level you get a rating upgrade, so you get to rerate all your works even higher! Why else do you think I have all these PJ points?

king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 5/20/2017 07:45

I keep a list of peeps that rate their own stuff so I won't rate theirs to restore justice ;^)



Eggy (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/20/2017 07:40

Ah, okay then, thanks! It's just that I actually believed rating your own work is bad sport because I thought it could come off as pretentious and unfair especially when you rate it high and it's not that good  But I guess rating oneself to show what you'd rate your own work if you were a passerby rather than to make it look better than it actually might be makes sense.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 5/20/2017 07:08

I'm totally with Hapiel on this! Be proud of your work and rate it as high as you can. ;)

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/20/2017 04:11

Bad sport? Gotta believe in your own works! I rated all mine to the max, obviously

Eggy (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/20/2017 02:45

Also, I just finally figured out how to put images besides PJ's smileys on Google Chrome; I have to right-click on my desired image, click "Copy Image", click on PJ's comment box and hit Ctrl+V. Like this one from the HoF:

Cartoon Ape icon/pixelart

And until now I had no clue how to do that and I thought I had to use FF or something to do it, which was a little too much trouble to do just to post an image. Yay for me 

By the way phillip, which browser do you use? If you use Google Chrome, did you try the method I described above?

Eggy (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/20/2017 02:02

Hey guys, is there a way to remove a rating or something? Because when I was browsing PJ on my phone earlier today, I accidentally tapped on the rating bar and ended up rating one of my own pieces by mistake (assuming that rating one's own piece is bad sport or whatever).

Also, could someone remind me whether translucent pixels are allowed on pieces submitted to PJ? As in pixels that aren't completely opaque or transparent (like a #FF0000 pixel with 127 transparency as opposed to 255 or 0).

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 5/18/2017 17:36

maybe switch browsers and try again. If you're talking about posting an image in the comment section, you can't copy and paste an image if you use some browsers.

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/17/2017 22:36

I think im banned from posting pictures on pj D: no longer works for me. I think it was because I would spam the chat years ago q-q.

pyrometal (Level 7 Assassin) @ 5/17/2017 16:50

PJ's comments, articles and private messages all use the same formatting system 

MrHai (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/17/2017 16:22

What the...! What is this magic? :O

pyrometal (Level 7 Assassin) @ 5/17/2017 14:51

Yes, that is also an option



The advantage of modifying the page source directly is that it gives a live preview right on the page with PJ's CSS already applied to it.


I guess it comes down to personal preference though!


Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/17/2017 14:10

Can't you format the post in an external editor, and then copy-paste it in PJ's wysiwyg editor?

We have a discord full of banter here

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/16/2017 23:41

Don't know much about these newfangled social things but I recall reading that Slack is like Discord: http://pixelation.org/index.php?topic=19002.0

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 5/16/2017 20:50

Are there pixelly IRC/Discords out there? I know of reddit's Discord, tried joining #pixeljoint on SlashNET.. was sad

pyrometal (Level 7 Assassin) @ 5/16/2017 20:23

Thanks everyone



If you think this is cool, wait until next month! After some more preliminary testing today, I think you will be quite pleased with the extent to which articles can formatted


Thinking maybe I should post a tutorial in the forums that explains how to do this so others can enhance their articles. Requires knowledge of HTML/CSS + using your browser's "web developer mode" though...


Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/16/2017 18:29

Really liking the preview monthly! 

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/16/2017 10:05

Very. It's like those classic 1920's radio performances, there's sound effects and everything.

Best part is that I got it from a Humble Bundle so all 20 something books only cost me $15! \o/

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 5/16/2017 09:54

This was all Pyro's work. Fantastic indeed.

MrHai (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/16/2017 09:09

Thats just pyro working his magic. Agreed - it's fantastic.

Paddy (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/16/2017 08:50

FixelJoint has previews on the top monthly now 

or is that just how whoever posted it formatted the post, either way it's a great addition.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 5/16/2017 07:54

40k you say? Count me in.

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/16/2017 00:44

Listening? Heresy.

Is the book good?

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/15/2017 21:30

Hey so anyone want to change the subject to something​ that isn't a decade stale moldy cheese?

You know how some people see jesus on toast? Close enough.

In other news I just finished listening to the second Garro audiobook, Legion Of One. Any Warhammer 40k fans in da house?


Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/15/2017 15:33

You could choose to have the categorisation done by the one who submits. In that case you can either have a lot of arguments, or decide to respect the definition of the submitter and have everything gray. 
I'd be okay with the latter.

Or, instead you have some pixel police go through every sumission and categorise them, which is what we do now already anyway. That means the category is just as gray as it is now, but with the added benefit that other artworks still do show up in the gallery!

Solutions all around?

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/15/2017 14:17

I feel like it would just create more gray areas than the present situation.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/15/2017 11:36

Pixel pure you say? That's why I use "Pure Joy", which is not only the nicest of all themes but also, as the name suggests, pure. ;)

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/15/2017 11:03

I'm all in favour of allowing pixel-ish art and pixel-allied as well, just classify it as such.

I also liked this idea.

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/15/2017 10:39

I only want to be considerate for Pixel Purists.

(just kidding).

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/15/2017 05:03
Or try pasting with Shift+Ctrl+V to paste as plain text. Usually works on most places I've tried.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/15/2017 03:53

Zizka, if you copy text and don't remove the formatting, it remains white. It took me a while to figure out that there was text in that post of yours! If you'd like to be considerate to people using other themes, please remove the formatting next time

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/15/2017 03:06

 It's nothing to do with elitism. Plenty of shit art gets posted here (I've a whole gallery of evidence). It's about classification.

No one's saying that pixel-art-as-we-define-it is better than other-kind-of-art (though it is, obviously).

This is an elegant yet simple solution.

Drazile (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 5/13/2017 21:08

i propose 'mixel', and pretend the lego mixel things don't exist



surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/13/2017 18:52

Half-arts, the product of miscegenation, corruption of the pure pixel art with the taint of lesser arts.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/13/2017 17:28

Let's call hybrids, oekaki, index paintings etc. from here on: "subpixel"

EdJr (Level 8 Shodan) @ 5/13/2017 16:43

what have I done

abominable_snowflake (Level 1 Intern) @ 5/13/2017 13:33

@Adarias, "pixel-allied" does sound dopey as hell but I love it because it suits nearly all of my work* perfectly. XD

* Not the stuff I post here, but in general.

king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 5/13/2017 04:41

Don't worry, I wasn't serious. I don't even know how long it was there since I was asleep during that time


Good work and good to hear!


MrHai (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/12/2017 16:39

@ pyrometal Very cool, great work!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/12/2017 16:38

Those terms of yours are even better, haha!

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 5/12/2017 15:50


this is hilarious but also a really practical way to think about things that use pixel techniques selectively in otherwise less-restricted environments.

I'm also tempted to start describing PJ as cis-pixel / pixelnormative / supporting the pixelarchy.

pyrometal (Level 7 Assassin) @ 5/12/2017 14:42

Yeah, sorry about that, I've been binge approving/rejecting the older pieces in the queue this week.

On the bright side, we now have a workaround for the admin queue issue which will be available to all the mods soon. EdJr is working on integrating my script into his FixelJoint plugin.

8 page queues should now be a thing of the past.
