I used to play MTG back in 1996. Spent far too much money trying to create a blue,white, green deck composed of fairies and mermaids! I stopped playing a good while back but I think that having a pixeljoint competition to create a magic the gathering card is a great idea. I would suggest that a template of the actual card should be made, so that the artist can forego doing that part of the challenge.

With the Hall Of Fame preview pics on the front page - do they not change anymore?

Redshrike (Level 8 Marshal) @ 7/29/2015 12:23

I don't play myself, but the cards are funny with minimal context, and I think most of us have probably seen and admired the card art at some point or other (many or most of the top fantasy artists have at least one in their portfolio, after all).

The new PJv3 is up and running but bugs and glitches abound.
Please post or pm a mod with your find in the forum post PJv3 Bugs and Glitches

king_bobston (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/29/2015 03:34

Paddy, I'm opening a glitches thread so we can fix as we can in the next day or so

The next day or so

You wrote that to me, too - half a week ago 

Finlal (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/29/2015 03:21

I'm not sure if there are many MTG players on pj.

Redshrike (Level 8 Marshal) @ 7/28/2015 23:43

Unrelated, but here's an idea for a challenge: design card art for one of these random Magic the Gathering cards which have been generated with an advanced neural network, often to hilarious results.  They're tweeted here: https://twitter.com/RoboRosewater and there's a thread about development here: http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/creativity/custom-card-creation/612057-generating-magic-cards-using-deep-recurrent-neural
My favorite is the Yiving Citemester.

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/28/2015 16:50

New Pixelart header seems to be bugged. displaying things in the wrong order and some not at all, even though they should be.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/28/2015 16:02

Its only gonna make him mad and all will pay :p

Paddy, I'm opening a glitches thread so we can fix as we can in the next day or so.


Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/28/2015 15:42

Trying to get used to this new look after so many years:D

Is there a way to scroll images when they are zoomed in the viewer?

Paddy (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/28/2015 14:35

Kinda noticed a little annoyance if anything, but yeah. If you try to hover over a piece from the top downwards it displays the info of the piece but it goes away once you try to click the actual hyperlinked preview image.

Here's an example of what I mean.

Whereas if you go from any other direction it displays the info as well as giving you the option to click the image to bring you to the piece.

Here's an example of that.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/28/2015 14:28

@jal... that's a BAD way to start the season off!!!

DragonMarx (Level 2 Peon) @ 7/28/2015 11:58

Ah so like stratego!

Also, clicking the link in your messages to get to the chatterbox results in an error 500

Finlal (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/28/2015 08:02

I missed you so much in these 1,5 weeks, chatterbox.
Update is great, though it'll take some time to get used to pj's visuals.

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/27/2015 20:01

Oh, yeah. They start with the same pieces, just there is a blind setup (so they start in different positions) and then you advance against your opponent to try to take out his tree, which is like his king though it can't move.

DragonMarx (Level 2 Peon) @ 7/27/2015 17:56

No I mean is the game played like chess where both sides have the same pieces and advance?

inphy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/27/2015 16:23

Haven't visited in a while and suddenly this! Nice work on the update, site is super responsive now. :)

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/27/2015 14:37

It's algebraic notation like chess, yeah, though more abbreviated.

And thanks, Aureliano.

StoneStephenT (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/27/2015 12:40

Unofficial “challenge” idea for this week: Behind the scenes of the PixelJoint update!

Aureliano (Level 2 Peon) @ 7/27/2015 10:32

That looks Great! @ParkerBabyDiaperCompany

DragonMarx (Level 2 Peon) @ 7/27/2015 10:32

oof gotta get working. 

@ParkerBabyDiaperCompany is that like chess?

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/27/2015 07:26

Got notation working in my boardgame http://i.imgur.com/KE2qRsF.png

Dennis (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/27/2015 06:20

I hope forum issues will get addressed too. I'd really like to not have to bug (pun totally intended) Jalonso everytime I want my sig changed.

It is good to see there is work being done on the site. For the longest time now I felt it had been abandoned.

StoneStephenT (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/27/2015 06:04


skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/27/2015 02:59

Some things need to be ironed out - then there will be a challenge. Hopefully it won't be too long...

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/27/2015 02:16

PJ 3.0 has evolved beyond the need for challenges.

Brink (Level 2 Corporal) @ 7/27/2015 01:29

Am I just impatient or isn't there going to be a challenge this week?

Drazile (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/27/2015 00:28

Light of Death Note.

I intend to do more characters from various anime in this style.

eishiya (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/26/2015 10:46

Is there/will there be any way to report broken links in the Links section?
Many of the older links are no longer valid. Some are plain dead and should be removed, some go to redirecting pages and should be updated. Some links to tools/programs are deprecated and links to newer versions should be submitted (or have already been submitted).

Night (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/26/2015 02:50

Cool update! Feels a bit weird but it's just gonna take some time getting used to I guess.

Cyangmou (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/25/2015 21:14

great stuff here, seems that PJ evolved.

Haven't seen anything like that since I am around here, so it's definitely something new.

cure (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/25/2015 20:03

Agreed, it's good to see such an important change and not just a new skin.

Will we be able to see what this new HoF looks like eventually? When you click the link on the front page it still takes you to the same stale list.

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/25/2015 09:52

Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 7/25/2015 07:41

I like the rework on the hall of fame, defintely a step in the right direction! It's refreshing to see newer peices make it on.

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/25/2015 06:02

Being signed in to the gallery portion of the site should carry over to the forum portion.

Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/24/2015 19:25


(Haha, se em algum momento você estiver afim de contribuir, será mais do que bem vindo! ;))

EdJr (Level 8 Shodan) @ 7/24/2015 18:31

I promise I'll try to do that as soon as I can, Jinn!

I just need to learn how to work with Firefox.... And have some extra free time.... and fix all the bugs in the Chrome extension....

(Eu ando meio ocupado, mas ainda lembro daquele projeto [se que é ainda tá de pé]; me desculpa por eu não ter mais dado sinal de vida!)

Raf (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/24/2015 17:01

Found a bit of a bug in the forum. If you edit a post, it'll give you a server error 500.

Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/24/2015 16:49

EdJr: Please make it for Firefox too <3

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/24/2015 14:50

I will open a thread in the forum later today for bugs and glitches found by PJers and will link here.

eishiya (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/24/2015 13:18

Adding to the feedback spam!

Just found the "Random unrated pixel art" link. Wonderful <3 Is that new? Are the tags new? If they are, then that sounds like the beginnings of some great browsing features. If not, then the new PJ does a much better job of making them visible.

The "zoom" icon next to pieces with previews in the Public Queue looks bad. It's too close to the title text and reads like a "Q" in some cases, and the magnifying glass symbol without + or - in it is generally understood as "search", not "zoom". Most importantly, I think it's unnecessary, because most artists make it clear when their previews are just previews. Having an indicator won't stop them from doing that, since the indicator isn't everywhere, and since making preview images can be fun in its own right. An indicator would be useful if PJ didn't allow custom previews and auto-generated them, but that would be a downgrade for a pixel art site.

The pagination problem with the public queue has still not been fixed. If you go to a page in e.g. Newest Pixel Art that's further into it than the public queue has pages, and then go to the queue, it'll say "There is no pixel art in the public queue" because it's trying to show queue pieces with the same offset as it was showing the gallery, but the queue has much less in it. The weirdest thing about this bug is that the page you were on is remembered at all. When you go to the gallery page again, you're taken to page 1.

EdJr (Level 8 Shodan) @ 7/24/2015 12:28

Sorry for being hasty (and spammy), but I'm kinda excited. I don't know how much time it will take for my news entry to be approved (assuming it will be), so here it goes:

I just published a Chrome extension called FixelJoint that adds some features to PJ and I'd really like to know what you peeps think!
The current features are a background color picker, a link to the piece inspector, a newer comment editor (+ smileys made by members!), a "Random piece" button, faving pieces without leaving the page, alternative rating buttons, side scroll bar, fix some nonsense (not a lot of stuff yet). I'm still planning to add some more and you can suggest new ones! Also, if you find bugs, send me a PM and I'll try to fix them as soon as possible.
PS: (Not-so) fun fact: I was already developing this extension without even knowing PJ v3 was coming out. I was thinking, "this extension relies heavily on the current layout, so it's gonna break if anyone changes anything. But it's not a problem since the site hasn't been updated for years, right?" So yeah, I had to redo some things. Also, I was going to publish it on the exact same day sedge published the news. :p
I haven't even commented about PJ v3, but I think everyone has said what I thought (both the good and the bad parts).
(Sent via the awesome editor that comes with the extension )

king_bobston (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/24/2015 11:34

Where can we spam the bugs we find? Is the chatterbox ok?

Anyway, when I got this reply from you and clicked on the link from my inbox I got a 500 error.

Also: yay! An updated pj with optimization for phones
Now we only need a way to properly display the actual pixel art without it getting wierdly zoomed and cramped

Edit: Add a ".htm" to the link when you try to share them so they might work ;)

StoneStephenT (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/24/2015 09:39

Let’s get Scott Cawthon to make the next Pixeljoint; he’ll have that sucker coded in a week flat and released five days in advance of his target release date.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/24/2015 09:16


king_bobston (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/24/2015 08:13

pj v4.0 when?

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/24/2015 07:27

It seems to me that header is always displaying the same assortment of images without changing atm.

Edit: Nevermind; that's not the case. I was just exposed to a new piece in the hall of fame, that I hadn't seen before and I favorited it.

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/24/2015 05:41

Seems to work now~

also, wow. first time one of my things popped up in hall of fame front page header... was the code altered? (it seemed to display the same uploads over and over, before v3 )

MrBeast (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 7/24/2015 04:22

Woah, hell must have frozen over.
