I apologize in advance for having shotty timing after the middle, but I wanted to get this as part of the contest. I felt that getting a release by the deadline was more important than perfect slide timing. My audio program uses minutes and seconds, but Fireworks is more confusing - it works with hundredths of a second.

Also, I ran out of time before I could put a screenshot of this up for cross browser animated PNGs:

I harped on PMGs for a while, you may recall. I tried many png editors with very limited results for creating significant animations of any complexity. As for the file size they generate, we might as well support html video with alpha channels or something similar.

I always bitch about "ignore/block users comments" not functioning properly.

I think the only moderation we need is detecting and eliminating alt accounts specifically used to skew voting results unfairly (1 vote per person). Otherwise, for any other duties, any moderator is subject to personal bias and is unlikely to be truly neutral/fair despite their ytmnd birthdate or presumed professionalism. Unless maybe they were elected (sans alt votes).

I think there should be a limit to how many 1 votes a user can post within a timeframe - like the time limit for creating multiple sites. Trolling should be made a little harder to do en masse.

I never understood the criteria that made one a featured user, exactly, and why they were eliminated.

What do you use Fireworks for? I hear its better for web development (multi-page, stylesheets, etc.) even though it is discontinued and no longer developed by Adobe.

I see animated png's as what animated gifs should really be in the year 2014 -> with alpha channels and 24 bit color instead of 8 bit.

I have actually done a good amount of work with video. The only way you can have alpha channels in them is if you used quicktime AND you have either the 'Animation' or the 'PNG' codec. Those output files also tend to be large.

Besides, I see animated PNG's as consistent with the original vision of YTMND whereas video is not.


Max already has ways of finding alt voters, as he has said to me, but he seems quite slow to punish. I was proposing it be done by the individual users instead. Besides, there are the kinds of trolls who do not technically violate YTMND standards, but they are just plain annoying any way. Or they do violate the standards, but they do so in ways which are hard to prove.

For example, there are those which go around, following others obsessively, constantly pumping insult comments at them. No one has to put up with that on facebook - there is a block button. I think that such a feature is a reasonable request for here.


Fireworks (even by Adobe's admissions) was meant for website building back in 1998. So the image slicing and image text techniques gradually grew less and less relevant since then, when you factor in more modern CSS 2 and CSS 3, along with HTML5.

Fireworks was also not the best animation - Adobe suggests Flash. Adobe also suggests Dreamweaver for most website editing. That is unless you are like me and rely on online site/content editors like with Wordpress and Drupal.

"I was proposing it be done by the individual users instead."

by this, I mean that individual users would only be able to secretly ignore some people, entirely block really nasty ones like on facebook or youtube and also report users anonymously in the same manner that one can currently do with sites.

I'm just bummed that Photoshop can't export animated PNGs.

I am being asked by my clients to produce more video work. I have mostly been using low-end consumer stuff like iMovie which actually works pretty well for simple things. But for animated logos and so forth
I use my 3d app or Photoshop CS 6 which has some decent video editing features similar to Premire. I know how to use after effects and premier but I don't own them and I refuse to subscribe to creative cloud. I'm considering final cut pro or avid but I'd love to find a video editor that exports to PNG animations too. so far I haven't found a solution.

I'm a print guy and I've been avoiding web for years but I've read some pretty good write ups on smashing.com about using fireworks for web development and user interface design despite its age. I want to avoid the template based apps like Wordpress Dupral. I'd use Muse or dream weaver maybe except for the Adobe subscription bullshit.

Every single comment you make is a troll against the belief in [b]BOTH[/b] intelligent design [b]AND[/b] evolution, as you are like some modern day fossilized cave humping monkey-man who, with every single syllable uttered, lowers the collective global IQ an entire percentage point.

Also, brag more about how yo and max are, you know, like buds and shit. You sad sack bunion on the ass-foot of life.

I also forgot to answer your last question, what do I use Fireworks for: I use it to mostly generate animted gif files. I feel like it is better at this than photoshop.

Why did you record yourself reading half of this and use a TTS voice for the rest?

1. i see a lot of presentations do this sort of thing, with an introducer voice and also a main presenter voice.
2. relying on more TTS was easier to make the audio with the limited time i was able to work with. with human dialogue, you have to do multiple takes for decent quality, then still edit and filter afterwards.
3. my voice is the kind which often needs work. i would have needed too much time

Sorry, Eric, but if Max had any interest in you being a mod, he would have made you one by now. Though I think a user election might be helpful.

suck ups - I don't think you understand how to use this term. The right word is "compliment". Sucking up means insincere compliments - like when you tell an ugly person that they look great.

I think Max deserves compliments for what he has done so far. So I compliment him for that. I do not do things like say the way he deals with issues of trolling are that great. Otherwise, I would not have made this site.

Yeah yeah yeah, Statist.

How about this for freedom from state?

I walk up to you and beat you to death. I take all your possesion. I rip you seed from your woman's womb and plant my own and then sell your corpse to the butcher?

What's gonna stop me from doing that?

Oh, is it a state?

.

See, you scumbags - you morally bankrupt scumbags - act as if that state protection is sacrosanct yet anything else is an assault on freedom.

Fortunately for all people who truly do love freedom - freedom from the only true totalitarian force in the West - the multinational corporations - I'm not as stupid as you and can explain the truth to everyone.

So, why should Max bring featured faggots back, again? What possible positives did they add to this website and its community? God, gotta love the compelling arguments behind this one, or lack thereof.
(-1)
Well, I know a lot of people did not like that aspect of the site, so I am sympathetic. But I feel like they would be a net benefit because people would have a bigger incentive to make better sites. I think trophies make competition more intense.

Except featured user sites were never any better than other sites, just frontpagefaggery of the type fourestcondom always churns out, and any FU who dared to make anything different from that (as in, actual funny sites) would quickly be demoted by Der Fuhrer Macks. It encouraged the worst kind of elitism and opinion myopia.

I think every site should automatically be given five five star ratings to couter balance all the downvotes from trolls.
(1)
I don't think I agree. I think suspected alt upvoters/downvoters should be reported.

Personally, if this was my site, what I would do is limit one vote per site per IP address.

But if they are not alt voting, then I think people are entitled to their opinions.

Although you proposed what you proposed, you did not seem to follow your own advice on my site here.

No, "Microsoft" is a company.

"you being greedy asking me this fucking question. like beign on the tinernet and knowing that dont like get it."

You have not actually given me your definition of greed. All you do is get hysterical and hurl insults.

You realize that merely assigning 1 star without any sort of argument or critique helps you in no way at all? (unless your goal is to inspire resentment from your targets)

All you are doing is saying "[b]I don't like it![/b]" Why should this person change their ways? How do they know that your opinion has any merit? Why should they not release similar content in the future?

I think instead of a Featured Users section I'd prefer a section to see sites made by friends. I mean, a featured users section is so you can hopefully see new good sites by people who usually make good sites, but if it's good it'll already be in Up and Coming/Top Rated. That makes it pretty unnecessary, IMO.

A section for sites made by friends lets you keep up with your favorite ymndters
