Hey, NG.  I'm doing fine.  Haven't pixeled much (or, indeed, any) since pixelation went down, but I hope to pick it back up now that my art has a home.  I'll be sure to do some c+c-ing as well; I seemed to be better at that than at actually making my own art.  Sorry for the random tangential ramble.  Yeah.  I'm doing fine.  I need to head over and get some critiques posted sometime.

So, Skip and Evan, what are your views of pixel abortion? And what do you guys have to say about the currently outrageous price of black pixels?

Skip, Evan, who will you support the most: Dithercrats or Demoscenicans?? Are you anti-anti-aliasing?

Well, jokes aside, you ought to start threads for your campaigns and clarify what you stand for :)

StairwayToEvan, I think you have the right idea bout the election but you're going about it in the wrong way. Right now it seems that you're just attacking Skipper or anyone that's going to run too. However you need to do something that makes you stand out positively instead of attacking everyone!

Please keep in mind that and feel free to redo your thread. <3

If anyone wants to nominate me that would be fine with me, I wouldn't mind doing a little above and beyond for pixelation. I'm a long time member of pixelation, save for my year break where I didn't even want to look at a pixel, but i'm getting back into it, finding my groove and am happy that everything is starting up again. The greatest thing about pixelation is the people, and once the steam starts building up theres no stopping the kettle from screaming some awesome stuff that we can do. IF you nominate me I would make it my top priority to work with Pep on getting some of the old "projects" back up and running, IE: the postcard project, I think if we can finish one of those and have a nice little process to creating something, printing it out and sending it to all our members that would be a great start. Hell, even if you don't nominate me, pep shoot me a message and maybe we can talk about these things? Anyway, thanks for your time.

Technically, I shouldn't say anything about favoring: I don't want to appear biased :P

I do enjoy making banners though!

Moderators are not able to compete for the seats either... but we have a position called Tenkei-Daijin, and one mod must fill it. There's no system in place for how we pick that person, but Pyro seems interested :)

I Think people should be able to vote four times.. but the voting system is limited. Let's vote in a tiered fashion. Seat 1, then seat 2, 3 and 4. That will let you pick your first, second, third, and fourth choices if we happen to have more candidates than seats... It takes a bit more time to get the results *need time for people to vote* if everyone's okay with having the voting go a bit faster, say, add a week, and spend half the week per seat...

Err, to clarify... we either...

1. Have a voting thread for each seat. Additionally, we can assume all candidates are running for all seats, unless they specify they dont want to challenge for seat X. In which case, if someone wins multiple seats, they are voided and we pick the runner up.

2. One vote thread at a time, in order of seat ranks.. 1, 2, 3, 4.... (might take longer)

Everyone, please, if you are going to run for a representative seat, post about it here and get support first before you start to campaign. This helps the staff keep track of who's interested in running, despite whether you campaign or not! This is a cakewalk compared to getting on the ballot in a real election!

I'd love to help out, but I don't think I'll run in this particular election, since I'm about to start my freshman year of college.  Keep me in mind for the next round, though: I have every intent to run once I get settled in to my schedule at school.  However, despite my business, I will take lief's stance that I am always here to help, whether or not I have an official position.

Good luck to all those running this time, and lets see some more people come out.  An election is no fun when there is no competition.  Competition brings out the best (and worst) in all those competing.  It is these best and worst attributes that we want to see before voting.

Its off-topic not off topic. Its been wrong this whole time, yet everybody still knew what it meant. Amazing. Somebody, somewhere, should be outraged.

beh, I dont really know where to post but here will work just as fine.

Iv been reading all the campaign things and all I have seen is challenges. I dont feel like running myself at the moment fer some reason... but I do have one suggestion to someone who is.

make some commercial critiques. For those unfamiliar with that, its where you breakdown and analyze a real game. Id be sure to participate. Hell ill start one if noone else does.

just thought id add that little tid-bit fer whomever cares because i find them important and productive and I bet im not alone

Two days before the election. I'm really excited. Some of the mods are not going to vote. I'm trying to be impartial myself, though I do have some leanings based on the questions I have asked. As of this moment, I'm very undecided. Whoever I could vote for, I'm left disappointing two candidates!!

It's a nice running: we don't have a dozen people running with even less distinguishable platforms. Mysterious candidate X hasn't shown up or anything, so things are at least predictable for some people in that sense.

Anyone know the name of a nes or snes game similar in play style to bubble bobble or bomberman, where you are a penguin I think, and theres like ice blocks and stuff. I can't remember the name of it for the life of me, and I wanna play it.

Are any of you interested in making music with a gameboy (or an emulator) that sounds like it was made with a gameboy? Like the beeps a blips?

I thought you would appreciate this link that Darion sent to me. Darion is the greatest when it comes to finding awesome links. (I want to give credit where credit is due) Mad props, man.

http://www.littlesounddj.com/lsd/

To get the rom, scroll down a bit, click on Download, go to the demo section, and download that.

You'll also want the documentation. It'll be in the download section, just click Documentation and download the one right at the top. It's a .pdf file.

Now I can be just like Beck!

I am enjoying David and goat's little exchange far more than I should.


Off-topic:  Does anyone else here like videogame soundtracks?  I have a strange fixation on Animal Crossing's background music and I have no idea why.  Also, here is a rather large online archive of music: here

Edit:  Also, for those who would rather use their GBA than their GB to make music, there is Nanoloop.  Cool beans, eh?

My little sister got her copy for her birthday.  I played it until I got bored.  Then I cheated my way out of debt and filled my character's house with old nes games.  Now it's a lot more fun, since all my character does is sit in his nintendo-memorabilia-themed house and play videogames.

Whatever gripes I ever had against the game, though, are irrelevant.  I adore the music.  I find it beautiful and inspiring.

Hey, peppy, can you post some links to that alien3 screen capture that you redid in pixelly goodness? I think I remember you had some WIP shots, so if you could also post those too.

Also, have you got a website with all your art on it? I guess I arrived at pixelation a little late or something, as I haven't really seen much of your pixels, and yet I keep reading in so many posts how you're such a pixelling great. It's very frustrating to keep seeing those posts, and not be able to see all the cool things you've done over the past couple of years.

Yes, and yes. I will get those online soon.

Half a year ago, I could have pointed you to a site with all of my art on it. Right now I'm rebuilding. Soon it will be ready! :P

It would have been a nice change of pace, as far as colors and design went. The main goal lately has been to move away from that strong dark coloring such as on Pixelation. The new Pix scheme we've planned is similar to the old one with the same familiar blues, but uses neutral post backgrounds so art isn't too hard to view, as well as the addition of more colors in softer/less saturant variations to add a little more sophistication. Anyways, too bad about Pixel Roots. Chiko did a great PRoots logo too...

And now to post something completely off topic...

Does anybody else write palindromic poetry?  Or even know what it is?  Anyway, here's one I wrote a couple of days ago.  Any thoughts/comments/critiques?

The only thing we have to fear
Is fear itself.

We have a Texan President
who says the terrorists are “out there”,
who will protect us
from the terrorists.

A message is sent,
warning
the terrorists:
a bomb is
headed your way.

A bomb is
the terrorists’
warning.
A message is sent
from the terrorists.
Who will protect us?

Who says the terrorists are “out there”?
We have a Texan president.
Is fear itself
the only thing we have to fear?

In case you didn't notice, the reason this is called "palindromic" poetry is that the lines read the same forward and backward.  So yeah.
Always remember: a preposition is not something you should end a sentence with.
