Still not working on this end. I may not see anything on the staff side but maybe it's not agreeing with me on the cropping section? That part doesn't even come up at all on Firefox.

Ok, I can't be bothered to read back a whole lot. But didn't RG die years ago? Is there a resurrection going on? If so, fucking ace.

I remember you. Although I must say some things are a bit hazy. I mean, it's been 5-6 years the last time I was on RG?

Anyway, I'll take a look onto the new forum later today since I should be working on some coursework right about now. Also, is -X- still around? I want to poke and make fun of that phase of his.

And haha, oh wow at that picture. Where the hell did you dig that gem up from? Oh lord, I remember making that and feeling all proud of actually producing something in photoshop. Yes, I was actually proud of that thing, hahaha.

I think it died in 06-07 so that'd be in the neighborhood. I didn't stop smoking in that time...so I fully know where you're coming from lol

There has already been the odd joke thrown around at his expense.. oh how I wish he would grace us with his presence lol

And haha, oh wow at that picture. Where the hell did you dig that gem up from?

A wise man foretold the prophecy of Retrogade's resur-erection...That Man.. Was SK!.....This Spring!....A Movie like You've Never Seen Before.......PASSION... Of the RETROGADE
SK saved everything from the old database cause he's genius :D

Yes, I was actually proud of that thing, hahaha.

You don't even want to see my old stuff lol

He comes and goes. He was active on the BBS for the last month or two but he's probably gone dormant again.

I recall the site going down in April 2007 which we were waiting for the site to move servers but then shit fell apart.

I've implemented a new Flash-based file uploader on Retrogade, so if you've been having problems getting images to upload, go ahead and give it a shot now. At some point I'll install Chrome and Opera for testing purposes, and I'll try to work out the problems with the image cropper. As far as I can tell, uploaded avatars should work even if the cropper fails, but I'm not positive.

Just did a quick test on Opera and Firefox. Opera is all good on this end but Firefox had a minor problem. After uploading one avatar and saving it, when I tried to upload another one it told me I needed to install Flash in order to upload an avatar. Strange.

Nevermind, that's only when the site hasn't had time to upload the flash file. No issues from me apart from that mishap.

SK, just wanted to check if you just changed your avatar to some wicked code or if this is a glitch.

Pic related.

Big Update, super big...like bigger then this *stretches out arms*

- Tutorial Pages
- Profile Pages
- Contact Us Page
Will be in SKs hands by Sunday at midnight so then he just needs to get them coded and live.

Once they're coded and in place we can work towards throwing as many fun filled, randomly ridiculous and occasionally vomit inducing features.

This is going to be the first major leap forward since RGs initial comeback.
So get excited and all that jazz.

Colour me excited. Especially about the Tutorial pages. It's the part about RG that I loved most back in the day. Being artistically crippled, I still had a great time replicating some of the effects in the Tutorial department.

How's that saying go "everyones an artist - it's the ability that's the question" - or something along those lines (I quoted it terribly)
Ideally we would like to provide enough aide to allow just about anyone to pick up PS with the right effort.

As for excited...

As a pre-cursor to the layout pages that will be implemented within the next couple weeks - We have put in part of the Retronin system to spice up the forums a bit.

You will now recieve $10 Retronin per post for posts 150 characters and more, and receive $25 Retronin for every topic made. SK has added a nifty little dollar sign feature in the post box allowing users to easily determine whether they have made the char quota. (it will turn green when you're in the moneys!)

Once the layout pages are in place you can count on a lot more features to earn and of coarse, spend your Retronin on =]

a hand to SK for hand writing the code to this in the blink of an eye

Yep, you guys have done one heck of a job bringing RG back on its feet.

Well done!

It's been a long process in the making, however we're excited to see it unfold before our eyes. We hope everyone is as excited as we are! lol

We're learning from the mistakes of old RG and putting the processes in place that allow new RG to strive to succeed.

Keep spreading the love to your friends and family. If they're art or program savvy, they'll be happy to hear about Retrogade.

Smileys a good start ?

Here's a few things for users to look forward to that may be available in the Retronin market.

- Smileys (including old RG smileys)
- Buddy Icons
- Site theme packs
- Alternative site banners
- Lottery/slot machines!

We have a long list of potential items prepared for beta, so start collecting now =]

Themes are now live! If you click the Themes link at the top-right of the page, you'll see that there's now a black button as well, for the new Black theme we've implemented. You can change between the normal Green theme and the new Black theme using these buttons (if you're using Firefox, you can also use the View -> Page Style menu to change your current theme). Your preferred theme is saved as a cookie, so it'll always be remembered on every page in Retrogade! If you see any problems with layouts or with the Black theme, let us know!

Everyone should check out SKs LED model! It's a nice combination of technology and art.

He explains it better here, there you can see a render of the finished model and a lot of the process of making the LED circuit board.
