Yay! New version deployed on live! ;D

http://tzigla.com

Changes since last deploy on live:

* thumbnails are generated when the admin approves a tile
* much nicer homepage (dedication to gizmo)
* signing in/out redirects back to the exact location you were viewing
* smaller sharing buttons
* automatically removing color profiles from tiles
* done tiles are now the exact size (since we're now removing the extra uploaded margins)
* a lot of invisible code changes that were needed so we can generate the thumbs because of stupid standards

* major thing for admins when sending back tiles!
  * admin can send a PM on tzigla
  * the artist can now see what the admin saw when it was sent back
  * this is very cool and important because the admin no longer has to send a message on facebook, twitter or pixelation, and the admin also doesn't have to manually make a screenshot anymore, wee
* option to allow max N tiles per artist per board
* we also nuke the transparency away from uploaded tiles

* feedback form

Hola again! :o

Shiny new version deployed! Thank dira for the code, cos I didn't do anything for this release.

http://tzigla.com

Changes:

* PLAYBACK!!
  * only for complete boards and for boards where the borders are being shown (only the checker collab c64, that is)
  * http://tzigla.com/boards/1
  * http://tzigla.com/boards/3
* better small-thumbnail generation for opera
* admins can now hover a tile they have to approve to see what margins this tile will leave for others

Huggies!

We appreciate the long explanation there, chelu. And the upgrades are nice!

I want to make some more tiles in the coming week. Been having trouble buckling down; stuff going on over here. Poor 1-3 is probably feelin' pretty dejected. I better paint her up real nice to make up for it.

@ both of you, Dira & chelu, keep up the awesome work!!!

Hello peeps,

We want to announce a potentially confusing change we will be adding to tzigla in the next days. A license! :o

Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

This is the same thing that wikipedia uses, and also lots of people on flickr choose to use.

The main goal of the license is to make sure proper attribution is given to the artists, and to tzigla, when people post a picture of the whole board or tile. It also allows anyone to take the tiles and make a better visualization or form of art with them and makes sure the tiles are not "locked" into tzigla.

Here are some reasons why we're adding this license and what we want people to do with it:

* if someone posts a picture to their blog, we want them to put a link back to the board or tile
* with or without a license, people will make a screenshot of the board, and try to sell posters (this happened to the tiles.ice.org boards)
  * people will do this anyway, but if we have a clear and simple license, they will at least put a link back to the board on tzigla :)
* we love to work on tzigla, and we want people not to take advantage of our work
* we want to encourage others to create even nicer things from the boards in tzigla. some examples:
  * nicer visualizations of a board being revealed (we have a play button, but a person with video editing skills could make a much better one)
  * calculations and computations based on the tiles. concrete examples: number of colors used, percent of red in a board, average number of attempts for a tile, etc

We hope you agree with us and we'd love to hear any opinions or advice regarding this.

Thanks!

For those wondering about the state of the Pixelation collab, it's coming together very very nice. Can't wait to see it fully revealed!  ;D

There are only a few tiles left, so you should grab one and show your pixel power while there is still time:

Finally got some closure on my curiosity about the name you chose for Tzigla.  In romanian it means "Roof Tile" - did Google inform me properly?


Revelation: Oh hey, these two separate boards are collaborating together to form a single image that looks like the work of iLKke

Hey pixel people! :B

We've just deployed a quite nice version of tzigla, if I do say so myself. Check it out here:

http://tzigla.com

Sweet changes included:

* quick board navigation (we're trying to score major points with gizmo since we're implementing all his suggestions)
* you can now set a title for your done tiles (titles become visible when the tile becomes visible)
  * example (first tile ever on tzigla, first one with a title): http://tzigla.com/boards/1#!/tiles/1-3
* artist profile which shows all tiles across all boards: http://tzigla.com/profile
* account editing where you should set an email for notifications NOW: http://tzigla.com/account
* random board on homepage
* cc-by-sa license
* lots of bugfixes and nice ui stuffs

Enjoy!

You are most correct. The generic word for tile is dala, but it sucks :)

In other related news: The Checker Collab C64 board only has 11 tiles available!!

http://tzigla.com/boards/3

It's gonna be epic when it's done and I'm sure you're gonna be rather bummed if you don't get at least a tile in ^-^

Keeps getting better and better. Fantastic work you guys.

Yeah I can't wait to see the slick C64 board done.
