death to (refresh)

Greetings all,
Today we have reached a historic milestone with the YTMND template. No longer will users need to refresh pages to try and get the audio and image to synchronize. Thanks to syncan (ironically enough), who wrote some clever Javascript and Flash, we now have the ability to ensure synchronization of image and sound, plus the benefit of sound working on any browser that supports flash.

Announcement YTMND is here.

UPDATE:Option added in your user options to turn off the flash preloader if you are having problems with it.

For the time being, this will only work with MP3 files until we can figure out how to convert WAV on the fly reliably with no spacers.

For those of you that didn't catch it, the game revolution contest is over. As is the Dew Army contest.

You make it sound like I'm anti technology. I'm against solving a problem that didn't f*cking exist. Do we really need more Family Guy clips and screamer sites and people posting videos they got on ebaums? Between flash, cheaper video cameras (including mad tech available at schools now,) web cams, easily pirated video software, etc, it's not like there was some critical absence of video capability. Anyone with a vision already had a ton of tools available to them. All this is going to enable is weak-ass hackery.

First of all, Max, mrob is right -- his/her being called syncan is coincidental, not ironic. Second, if I submit something with an .mp3 file, does this happen automatically, or...?

ironic adj 1: humorously sarcastic or mocking; "dry humor"; "an ironic remark often conveys an intended meaning obliquely"; "an ironic novel"; "an ironical smile"; "with a wry Scottish wit" [syn: {dry}, {ironical}, {wry}]. no you have to turn on the "Synchronize" option at the bottom.

I suppose that's one way of looking at it, but it seems to me that it would be perfectly logical (and thus not ironic) for one whose screen name is cognitive of "syncin'" would develop scripts that would help GIFs and music sync up.

But it's only -real- art if it's obscure, basic, and involves some overly-laborious procedure. Only problem is...He's the only one trying to make art here. Everyone else is just trying to have a laugh. Not that I can't appreciate someone with higher ideals.
April 5th, 2006

(0)
I'm not asking for high art. I'm asking for good humor. The problem with sites run by usermade content is that everyone thinks they're funny and very few people really are. I wouldn't put my own stuff near the top of the list by any means, and yet it looks like gold compared to most of the stuff cranked out here. If people were honest about stuff and were willing to publicly rate sites low when they're not any good, without worrying about their own scores, this place would do a lot better. But because nobody wants to rock the boat, we've got a hundred thousand people patting themselves on the back for total sh*t. And there's really not much worse in this world then unfunny humor.

And if you wanted to ascribe meaning to the name "syncan" when that meaning isn't there, if anything, you'd end up with the exact opposite of irony. You don't think the name "Burger King" is ironic because they sell burgers, do you?

Since syncan is an internet god, the next logical step is to make a firefox plugin that (1) refreshes lists of 'newly created' or 'up and coming' ytmnd's, (2) buttons for 'auto-stealing' a ytmnd's background and audio, and (3) makes YTMND actually work in firefox, so that sounds aren't broadcasted when a YTMND site is minimized or behind another tab. IMHO

On site information, there could be an option for the user to hide their name. So it would just say, Created by: anonymous. That might help the voting problem a little bit, so that everyone doesn't auto 5 sites by a favored user (or auto 1 sites by a notorious user)

"Billstickers," everyone falls back on the "well it's subjective" argument. Subjectivity is just an adaptation we have because of our disconnect with the objective truth. That is, unless you're READY to open the gates to hell and defend statements like "Fall Out Boy are as musically significant and complex as Mozart" or say "Radical Islam shows more respect to women's rights than Western secularism." When you start to see all the ridiculous sh*t subjectivity brings about, it's hard to stick to it.

The way I see it, this isn't a big change as far as site design goes. In fact, it'll probably be more of an advantage to people like me with sh*tty connections which mean that refresh sites never sych for me. To be honest I'm more a fan of simple picture-sound-text sites (and even if I had the technology to make a sync site I probably wouldn't do it much), but occassionally you get strokes of creativity on FSF sites. Anyway, to sum it up: this isn't going to cause an increase in "ripped from film/TV show" sites. The people who made them before will still make them now, only it'll be slightly easier for them. As for everyone who can't make sites sync, this'll make no difference to your sites. It's not like it'll magically make everything sync without you having to put any effort in.

In any case, it's nice of Syncan to donate his time to create all the fancy computer code for the website. And I agree with Inkdrinker and co, it's more a coincidence that's he's called "Sync"an than it is ironic.

True subjective opinion and relativity would never come into the hypothetical debates and arguments you state because if they were truely subjective no one would ever try to change anyone else's mind. Let me be clear, subjective opinion is a state of mind but as such it should manifest itself in ONE FORM above all others. Shutting the f*ck up. Because if one truely believes in the relative importance of all things, they won't try to change anyone else's mind.

I was never a proponent of gifs to begin with as it seems to defy the basic nature of YTMND, but with this new addition which will surely only support the short film makers, I'd like to see some sort of ytmngif or some such thing like ytmnsfw that only showed the highest rated and viewed classic style ytmnds that don't defy the refreshingly basic premise this site originally had.

Well, max mentioned something about some new categories, such as seperation of fad sites into groups, etc. Just as there are current categories for mod faves, sponsored, etc.. there could perhaps be a "classic ytmnds" section reserved for traditional sites that have been voted in.

I don't believe in objective truth, outside of scientifically proven and tested theories and laws. Anything other than something which uses quantitative values is at best a fact (used in this case as a scientific fact, which is not undeniably true, but a product of observation which is still subject to testing)

; a subjective opinion held by some collective of individuals. The only way one could say something like "Fall Out Boy are as musically significant and complex as Mozart" and have that be an objective truth would be if there weren't people in the world who actually thought that, as sad as something thinking that is.

The problem is that so many different thoughts and ideas are possessed by so many individuals, objective truth is nearly impossible to find or to provide for. However, there is subjective truth of a collective, which is all we can use in the place of objective truth, which makes it no less important, since it takes the place of objective truth. We must work with what we have. Individual perception is all we have, and through that, subjective truth of a collective.

Though my hat goes off to syncan for his clever scripting, this flies in the face of traditional YTMND. Yes, that's right: I too am an orthodox YTMNDite. I fear that, with this new advancement, we are approaching the end of an era. YTMND's traditional "Picture, Sound Text" format encourages creativity by virtue of its rather rigid limitation. For those of you still in elementary school, that means that you are more likely to be creative when you have less to work with. Though what inkdrinker would dub "f*ggy short films" were possible sans sync, they were much more difficult to achieve; thus FSF's were less common. Now that any fool with a .gif and a lengthy sound bite can do it...well...I hate to say it, but we may be approaching the end of the Picture Sound Text era.

ScndPistonHonda: you've never done anything to support the site and have always been one of the users claiming everything I do is selling out. I'm trying to solve problems when I see them, if you aren't happy with it why not try voicing some constructive ideas rather than constant criticism? YTMND has relatively few ads on the site, almost all of which are not intrusive at all. Of course I'm trying to make money, but I'm obviously not getting rich (or I would have quit my job by now), so if me putting ads on pages or adding new features that may draw new users is worse in your opinion than paying for YTMND hosting, then by all means leave.

If you're intentions were only to fix the problem, then it wasn't selling out and i'm sorry i said that. I'm just kinda pissed/disappointed at the moment that ytmnd has taken one step towards being like everything else. Whether your intentions are good or not, the effect is still the same (as if you sold out). If telling you the truth without kissing up and wanting ytmnd to prosper is not contributing/caring, then i don't know what is.

Make your own _fill in the blank_. Complaining about things, whining and crying are the suicidal emo kids' favorite passtimes. Many people get discouraged in life and end it because they're ignorant of the fact that life is what you make it, and they occupy themselves with why it sucks. Life is meaningless. YTMND is meaningless. See how little your outrage amounts to now? If you forget that we all have the capacity to make not only YTMND what we want it, but life as well, you lose, and shouldn't even be playing at these games. Don't like the new stuff? Close out of windows with loading screens/downvote/whatever. Don't make them, don't watch them.

I still don't see why this has to be such a big deal. It's just a way to avoid having to refresh every time you want to view a YTMND that needs to sync. YTMND is not newgrounds, it's not becoming newgrounds, and it will never be newgrounds.
