Hello Peeps,

I just learned that the chatterbox exists . Pretty neat!

pyrometal (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 5/29/2018 14:05

Thanks Irena . Looks like I survived yet another trip around the sun!

Irenaart (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/29/2018 02:30

@pyrometal; Happy birthday pyro!!!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/28/2018 03:07

Happy birthday Neota!!!

eishiya (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/25/2018 14:19

Yay, thanks! Had to hard-refresh to have it take effect, but this is so much nicer.

pyrometal (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 5/25/2018 13:55

I just passed on your comments to Sedge by email to have it added to his todo list

Edit: Sedge says he has removed the line.

eishiya (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/25/2018 11:33

Was the site recently changed to scroll down to the submission image when it's zoomed? This is very annoying, could that please be removed :T

(i.e. please remove imgd.scrollIntoView(true); in the zoom function in pixels.js)

I don't think any auto-scroll is needed, but if anything must be there, I'd say it should auto-scroll so that the bottom of the entire container is at the bottom of the window if it would be pushed out, so that the zoom buttons aren't pushed out of view by the image.

Glad to see scrollbars for large/zoomed images though :D

iirc most of the time the winner didn't bother responding, or didn't respond in time. Every now and then it'd just be a really unworkable idea. I think the current system runs more smoothly, but it makes sense to also allow the previous challenge's winner to provide a challenge idea that takes precedence over those previously sent in by the masses.

Unreal Gold Edition is now free on https://www.gog.com/game/unreal_gold for a limited time.

Hurry and grab a copy!

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 5/23/2018 16:42

I want the winner to decide the next one. That was good and a good incentive to win. IF I ever won and didn't get that opportunity I would be really upset.

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/23/2018 16:26

Do a minimum color count one. (2 to 4 colors only)

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/23/2018 10:12

I was also thinking that it's been too long ago that we've had a palette one. Who has a good palette + theme to suggest to Mandrill? Anyone is welcome to suggest, not just challenge winners!

|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 5/23/2018 01:08

and maybe just a little less..
abstract? jkjk @Mandrill

|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 5/23/2018 00:59

I have a very general suggestion for those,
more palette challenges (wherein the palette is predetermined)!!

cmmrc (Level 4 Button Man) @ 5/22/2018 11:07

Thanks! I had no idea he was in charge of challenges!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/22/2018 09:28

Your best bet is to directly message Mandrill, I'm sure he'd be interested to hear your challenge suggestion!

PixelDust (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/22/2018 08:22

it seems like the whole idea of having the winner choose the next challenge, has been completely abandoned.
since the same thing happend to me a while back

cmmrc (Level 4 Button Man) @ 5/22/2018 03:13

That reminds me! Have I missed the timeframe for posing a challenge or who do I have to talk to for that? Since I won first place for the first time just before I left town for a while.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/22/2018 00:41

3 times in a row the challenge was won by Jok! Is that some kind of record? :o

jeremy (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 5/19/2018 06:44

thank you to whoever fixed that forums profile hover bug !

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/17/2018 03:36

Yessssss, ptoing!!!!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/17/2018 03:07

Happy b-day ptoing!

FoxTurtle (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/16/2018 04:52

Alright, thank you pyrometal!

pyrometal (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 5/15/2018 19:51

It's more of a case of your piece not making it into the challenge in the first place because of unfortunate quirks with the system. We've already noticed that your piece hadn't made it in.

Since the system won't let us fix this post challenge closing, we give out "Victim of Circumstances" awards (bronze star) for those members affected. Mandrill has already noted your case and will be awarding you the star next Monday.

I know it doesn't quite make up for losing a shot at the challenge but its the best we can do until PJv4.

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/15/2018 19:46

Happy bdays to all! 

FoxTurtle (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/15/2018 17:51

Hey, I have a quick question, why was my Honeypot Ant submission removed from the challenge? I expect it may have something to do with restrictions I may have forgot to observe or the fact that it was unfinished for about a day when it was posted? Thanks.

pyrometal (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 5/15/2018 14:55

Let's keep the momentum going! Happy birthday Squirrelsquid

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/15/2018 03:14

Happy b-day PBDC! \o/

And thank you to everyone who remembered mine <3

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/14/2018 23:33

Happy birthday PBDC!

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 5/14/2018 22:23

Thank you.
As for the name: it was inspired by the tongue twister "rubber baby buggy bumper," but the actual words I chose are meaningless; they just happened to pop into my head the day when I signed up for a PJ account.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/14/2018 14:50

Happy birthday PBDC! Is this perhaps a good moment to ask where your name comes from??

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/13/2018 15:07

"We doubled the K's to make it sound more exotic which turned out to be a disaster as later I got swarmed with people hitting on me on #pixel 'cause they thought I was a girl from Scandinavia. I've been wearing a beard ever since to keep them at bay"

More on that username in this PJ feature interview, even if you've already read it, this is a good moment to revisit it!

Fusionnist (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/13/2018 14:48

Merry celebration to you, ilkke! I find your work to be lovely,  except your username which might look cool but is hard to write down. Cheers!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/13/2018 10:39

ohhh, happy birthday Ilkke! This chatter box turns into the birthday box again! 

Irenaart (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/13/2018 08:49

@iLKke; Happy Birthday to You!

AirStyle (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/11/2018 18:55

Happy Birthday, Sedgemonkey! Thanks for keeping PJ running smoothly!

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/11/2018 15:38

Happy birthday Sedge!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/11/2018 14:35

Happy BD Sedge, thanks for committing to keeping PJ alive and up to date, bit by bit! 

Who's been around long enough to remember when we all made monkey avatars this time of year? 

Irenaart (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/11/2018 14:09

@Sedgemonkey; Happy birthday to our saviour!

Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 5/11/2018 14:04

Happy birthday Sedge :)

Why thank you very much for the awesome compliment on my AAP-Splendor128, JerryPie; I *really* appreciate it from the heart indeed.  ;*)

This palette first started out originally as a 192-color one at one point during development, but then I had to truly balance and thoroughly optimize all the many colors, saturation, hues, and tones all rather painstakingly while cutting it all down it to just a strict 128-color limit on this overall palette right here indeed.  This set of colors was what I finally came up with in the end:


...and if you look closely at the full picture of my AAP-Splendor128 palette currently on PJ right here, my man, you can see the well-over 20 possible color combinations that you can achieve while creating brand new pixel-art that uses this very palette indeed, as well as huge support for so many natural materials you can only dream of yourself!!  That is the beauty of creating palettes in general, you know that now? 

My great personal inspirations for that are DawnBringer and his phenomenal DB8, DB16, and DB32 palettes; as well as Endesga’s equally as top-tier EDG16, EDG32, EDG36X palettes, and now his very newest EDG64 one which just came out less than three (3) weeks ago as I am writing this very post, also.  All those very palettes collectively show us what OUTSTANDINGLY brilliant color variety and gorgeously rich versatility that one can achieve while keeping the overall amount of colors as very limited yet splendidly well-balanced as possible.  And on that front, JerryPie, I personally thank them both from the bottom of my absolute heart for all their amazingly rather first-rate palettes that heavily inspired me to create my very own AAP-64, AAP-16, SimpleJPC-16, and now AAP-Splendor128 ones all over the consecutive course of just less than an entire year combined — quality and everything!!!  !!

Quite prolific in that short span of time since 2017, aren’t I now?

JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/8/2018 16:47

Really cool color palette AdigunPolack. I'll check it out!
