pffftttt what a question! Of coarse we have a facebook page!

I highly suggest this method of registration.. lol... One, because SK just set it up like 5 seconds ago so why not ? Two, because you get to see pictures of all your secksay pals ;D (except for Quik cause he's not being a team player) and 3, if you do it now you get to pretend you're superly awesome and get to call people noobs who did it after you. "Naw noob, look at your facebook page, I totally liked Retrogade before you" +10 cool points.

Now that Retrogade has a forum category and description system, I need suggestions for forum categories and forum names+descriptions. I'm not creative enough for that, so that's where you guys come in ;-)

I don't like forum descriptions and I don't think I should be allowed to come up with some of those forum names and categories. I'd end up changing most of them to the names we used on The Alliance for each forum.

I love how you capitalize The Alliance <3

Aside from forum section suggestions, SK has added the forum tool allowing us to add and open up the forums fully. In a few days most of the forum sections should be added. Anyone who wants to start trolling RG while they troll NG, your wait is almost over =]

To celebrate my 4000th post... I have decided to post it here in RGs fine topic...for no reason other but to spam. Seems fitting as it took me some spamming in general to get here =]

Soooooooooo... take that NG! you dirty little bitch you.

With that said, I'd like to thank the little people - without you I would've never flamed so much in the past.

Good to see another vet around. Things are pretty slow in terms of activity at the moment but a lot is happening progress wise.

Everyone is invited to come spam the forums. =]

While I was busy going through old retrogade posts (it's what I do) I found this post that inspired me to try and give a decent update on the progress of retrogade.

After a lengthy holiday break in which they fattened up for their winter hibernation, SK and QuikFox have been hard at work putting a lot of great stuff together.
Too name off a few quickly I put together a list below.

Coming soon (like real soon)
- The final layout will be put into place sometime in the next few days. (Most likely final.. <_<)
- Forum sections will be sorted out in the next few weeks.
- New logo, possibly final logo will be put into place in the next few days. Made by the great SDG.
- Contact page with our sexy faces plastered all over it. (Don't worry, they'll be caricatures, you don't have to look at our faces) in the next couple weeks.

Future features
- Huge milestones list.
- Site themes, colour choices and all that awesomeness.
- Tutorial section for PS and other art programs.
- Full compatibility with Facebook. (Can sign up for RG through Facebook already in place)
- Massive resource section to aide users.

This shit is happening this time. We're invested for a 5 year haul, minimum!
Yeah, that's right! We're marrying the bitch this time.

What can you do to support the cause ? Anything that involves being involved with Retrogade. You pick, just don't be a wall flower.

Hey everyone, quick post from myself to ensure things are going well.

We'd like to thank SDG for creating our new logo and personal avatars for our contact page.
You can view the new logo here:
http://bit.ly/i7uUyw

Quikfox has been designing the 10th version of Retrogade in it's 5 year history to reflect this new logo. It won't be moving away too far from the current design that's in place now, rather than building upon what's there.

ShittyKitty's been very busy coding the back end, and has quite a few features inserted already. Three months ago we were in a text based alpha with the very basic of code. He has now implemented a giant list of features and bug fixes that have come up.

The features we're planning for the next month will include the User Profile side of the website. Because artists are very creative, we'll be making sure that the profiles are as customizable as possible.

LethalDosage and myself have been working hard to ensure that you, the user, will get full benefits from using Retrogade. Hosting your art or programs isn't just for the sake of putting them online and walking away, we want to ensure that you're going to have a little bit of fun by helping out other artists with your tutorials or just uploading a cool, free font you saw on the web.

Finding other users with skills you need to finish that project will be another way to stay connected. We aren't just building nostalgia, we're building a community. A community where artists, programmers, photographers, anyone with an art passion to work together on projects, discuss or showcase their works, and be able to enter a friendly atmosphere where others are willing to help out others.

Retrogade is coming along nicely. The project is still on track and with the amazing work that Quikfox and ShittyKitty are doing, it's progressing much faster than any of us could have imagined.

Please come by and check out http://retrogade.org - any ideas you have can shape RG's future. I'm sure the older members would like to see some things come back as well somethings changed.

Cheers

Yes sir! The big red one, the time for love....Valentines Day!

Actually..No.

It just so happens, RGs projected date for open BETA will be 2 weeks into February.

Of coarse, it could be a few days earlier or a few days later.

So get excited and shit.

Hope this doesn't put too much pressure on you SK ;]

I've gotten all of the old Retrogade submissions on the website, and they can be added to your account on request in this topic: http://retrogade.org/post/753 We'll have the portal up and running by the beta launch, so you'll be able to have any of your old submissions re-submitted to the new site!

The new layout (version 10 of QF's work) has been completed and is now online for everyone to see! I've rewritten most of the Javascript behind the site, and utilized a lot of popup panels instead of separate pages for a number of features. It's awesome, go check it out!

If you're still open to forum suggestions, what about having a music forum? I recall a music forum on the old RG and I'd like to see it on the new RG.

Apparently the BBS doesn't like direct linking to .wav files. Anyway, it was "Thank you!" on this page.

We've now got links at the top of every topic for social media sharing (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and you can now upload your own user avatars (with a built-in cropping tool)!

That's right!

Unfortunately we missed our deadline for the Beta launch, which was set for yesterday. However, SK has been developing and coding until his hands start bleeding. We have him chained to a chair in a dark room in an undisclosed location.

We'll be looking towards a March launch, so get ready, because Retrogade is going to come in like a lion!

...rawr

Quick update;

- We're aiming to have the Resource uploader early next week. This will aide PS users, programmers, and all sorts of artists across the web.

- Staff avatars are almost complete - If you're interested in checking out the progress of 'em; Link
SDGs really has done some great work on them.

- Rocket and me are working out what the users pages and portal pages layouts. We're aiming to have that iron'd out by early March. So Beta should be.. Unofficially...In a few weeks.
Everyone should give rocket a hand for stepping up and trying to do this, it's somewhat out of his area of expertise.
And again like always, if you want to give any suggestions, or even do some cheap mock up in mspaint of what you think a good layout could be, don't hesitate to post it in Suggestions & Feedback.

- User AVATARS! In case you missed it..SK managed to work up user avatars to spice the forums up a bit. With a convenient little cropping tool so you don't need to kill yourself trying to make shit fit.

That's all the updates we got for now.
If you want to show your support, give any ideas, inquire into the direction we plan on taking with the new RG, please feel free..... We could use some user support on the forums <3

I would except it doesn't work on Opera nor Firefox. I can't even click the upload button for Opera while Firefox just keeps loading forever for the picture to upload.

I was aware of an issue with Google chrome, but Opera and firefox I didn't know. We're going to have to broaden our testing method to cover other browsers obviously...lol

Could you ctrl+f5 and then try in firefox again. It worked using firefox for us, so maybe it's just a cache issue.

and thanks for bringing this up, I'll let SK know.

Sooooooo, where the hell is everyone ? lol

And Bahamut have you tried uploading another PP yet ? I tested with a second account and it worked in firefox. Unfortunately since we're in alpha everything's set up to run off of FF right now. I think it's the better browser anyways...but I know some people ain't fans.
