WELCOME TO THE NEW AND IMPROVED 4M!


Title: FLASHCARTOONS.ORG NOW HAS A FLASH PORTAL!!!!!!!! <<<<<<
Post by: kinjo on October 20, 2010, 06:22:55 AM
Over 10 years ago when I created Flash Cartoons, the main thing I wanted was an upload portal. I thought to myself, if someone made a flash cartoon, wouldn't www.flashcartoons.org be the best place to upload it??

NOW WE FINALLY WE HAVE A FLASH PORTAL!!! Please note it is in BETA mode, lot's of bugs to be worked out, design to be designed, etc, etc.

http://portal.flashcartoons.org

Tell your friends, tell your co-workers, tell your classmates, tell your parents!! This might be the start of something HUGE!!!!

IT'S HERE!!!!

Title: Re: FLASHCARTOONS.ORG NOW HAS A FLASH PORTAL!!!!!!!! <<<<<<
Post by: kinjo on October 20, 2010, 07:04:07 AM

no need to rush visitors just yet, just incase

I think you should have it so you can post something on there but it can be a private upload too, for posting updates and beta testing.

Also some of the movies aren't working...... such as spiderwolf and ur-shrek 2004.

I also think we could have a user-page, so if you go to the users page, it will list all the users uploads

Post by: kinjo on October 20, 2010, 04:01:06 PM
fixed the problem with the flash's not working, it was because they are bigger file sizes

NOW ALL TOONS WORK!!! working on more now

I really have to point out that having an ad right here is super annoying and all the buffer space between it, since the tiny links to navigate the page are above it and way smaller than the size of the ad.

Title: Re: FLASHCARTOONS.ORG NOW HAS A FLASH PORTAL!!!!!!!! <<<<<<
Post by: kinjo on October 20, 2010, 05:54:30 PM
i plan to redo the whole TOP, new navigation, new buttons and links, and a better logo, different colors

i dont like the text links, i dont like how the logo looks and i dont like all that black space

it is being worked on but right now my priorities are

-Official FC News on front page
-Profiles showing recent uploads
-Random Toons Mod on right navigation
-Views on each game,
-Getting rid of duplicate logins (if you sign on with different browsers),
-Getting rid of file attachments on each upload page,
-If the user doesn't upload a thumb, a default one is used (right now, its just blank)
-Also you can hit submit without even having uploading a swf (this is bad)
-The top text button Upload Flash doesn't show unless your logged in, i want it always to be shown (and goto a YOU MUST BE SIGNED IN TO UPLOAD page)
-Blog inside each user profile maybe front page posts
-A Search

after all of this, the design will be worked on, design is last, features first

How are you going to control the spam?  One of the biggest problems with Newgrounds portal is the amount of spam that goes in there.

Post by: bloo-apple on October 21, 2010, 12:45:56 PM
how about limiting it to 2 uploads a user per day?

Also, how about Categories? Here are a few catagories

Animations
Original Flashcartoon Animations
Stick Figures
Video Game Parodies
Violence
Music Video
Education

Games
Original Flashcartoon games
Platformer
Education
video game parodies
Fighter
Rythm

Post by: Adelaide on October 21, 2010, 10:12:48 PM
for games it should be more like.. action, puzzle, adventure, ect.
As for the videos those are all good but violence doesnt really fit in o.o

:( look what just happened...

I'm not bored of it, I love posting my old stuff on there, I forgot about all of these things I've done, Im trying to post 1 a day.

Also the tracker at the bottom looks really ugly X_X can you please replace it with a cute looking getClicky one and put it on the side?
(http://static.getclicky.com/media/links/badge.gif)

http://getclicky.com/265681

It's also good because the people who click on them can not see your statistics, only you.  I replaced it on my site as well

Title: Re: FLASHCARTOONS.ORG NOW HAS A FLASH PORTAL!!!!!!!! <<<<<<
Post by: kinjo on October 28, 2010, 07:45:22 PM
but you see this is good for search engines

if someone looks up Mario Red, better chances of it getting found than node/325252 because it's in the title

or are you talking about allowing a smaller character limit allowed?

-User page show uploaded flashes
-PMs
-Title change
-Description META
-Delete un-needed nodes

not my fault, it is their system

says its being worked on

*UPDATE*

-changed all the backgrounds to black

the way this layout is, the css is just evil, it's like a needle in a haystack trying to find what colors and what images for what peice of background, so i just made it all black.. what i might try and figure out to do is make the bg like www.flashcartoons.org with the repeated logo
Title: Re: FLASHCARTOONS.ORG NOW HAS A FLASH PORTAL!!!!!!!! <<<<<<
Post by: bloo-apple on November 07, 2010, 12:20:34 PM
now that  you have the system, can't you just rewrite the whole CSS? That's what I would do
Title: Re: FLASHCARTOONS.ORG NOW HAS A FLASH PORTAL!!!!!!!! <<<<<<
Post by: kinjo on November 07, 2010, 02:19:27 PM
you don't understand how it works though, its not wordpress

there are about 100 .css files, everything is scattered around

also system still isn't perfect :-P

Here is the new list:

-Show attachments in blog posts
-Upload flash page, if not logged in say "You must be logged in to upload a flash cartoon" Instead of Access Denied..
-Random Toons on the side menu
-Shrink to fit? Pop up? Multiple? Basically you can upload any size, and if its too big, breaks the page

I know what you mean when you say it takes days to notice a new feature on ur site.

My games, most of the time when I work on them I want to add some features and I spend days sometimes looking on how to do it.  I need to learn how to do what I already know how to do before all that.

i cant find a way to link that to the text My Account that fw pointed out

which is why i think for the header button, changing that to games once i get categories working

but it takes u to another page in order to do it.  It takes time to click up there and fill out the form, it would be better if it was like image shack.  Home page has the upload button.

The problem with your suggestion is that one need an account in order to upload a flash on the portal.  Members would have to first login, which would be loading pages and by then the attempt to make less page loads would be redundant.

Fitting in the entire upload form on the front page isn't very pretty looking. The concept works for imageshack because its just a file upload without titles, summary, or thumbnails.

TL;DR?

Upload form too big for button.
Membership makes for navigating pages.

it's a nice site to have, but it's not fun, because it isn't very competitive or have any reason to post quality work. 

I'm thinking a simpler site would make it way better.  So many pages is good because you can have a to of publicity and stuff, but it shouldn't be about that so much yet.  I am thinking you should look at photobucket's site. It's got a very simple idea.

http://photobucket.com/

A page for uploading, with you account of course.
Front page with a search bar, and suggestions to watch.
And a second page to find stuff.

This web software doesn't work like a normal web design software, in order to change the layout of the many blocks, one would have to re-code it all. A large feat considering how many files would be edited and would influence other files.
Title: Re: FLASHCARTOONS.ORG NOW HAS A FLASH PORTAL!!!!!!!! <<<<<<
Post by: kinjo on November 17, 2010, 05:51:25 AM
Exactly, just like you can't use dreamweaver to change wordpress as well.

I'm sure Kinjo would love to develop his own web portal from scratch.
Title: Re: FLASHCARTOONS.ORG NOW HAS A FLASH PORTAL!!!!!!!! <<<<<<

ya, bloo i do want that

but i just got 2 web clients, so all personal projects have to go on hold....

Kinjo, get rid of forced preview for comments on the portal, if it isn't already on your list.

but it's worth it!

to be honest, i was thinking of making a member class

right now there is anonymous user, authenticated, moderator, and me

i could make a cartoonist user type, and they will have more privileges, or maybe basic user and then authenticated user would be one that we (moderators/admins) know is not a spammer
