here's an idea, call a small .swf and pass all the variables from html into it, then have that movie call the pico animation. the animation will definetly get cached since i've done it before. if the initial movie doesn't get cached then it's okay since it will only be about 2K.

Leave the text based response to a vote instead of the pico animation...
Its faster, and besides, once you seen the pico animation after voting once, it gets really old, quick, i'd just leave the text if I was you...

besides-
No NG user can truly enjoy that pico animation because we havent seen a new pico game in 3 years!!! when the hell is pico 2 coming out???!???!

I had that problem with the re-downloading of the pico animation, it wasn't that bad except for on peak hours where it would take about 2 minutes to completely load the page. Even though it takes a while to download the animation every time, i still would like it there. I don't like the text version when you vote. Oh and one thing with the pico animation, after i voted on one movie, it would say i have to vote on 4 more things. Then after that it would say i needed to vote one more time (even though i needed to vote about 3)
Oh well, the text aint all that bad. No more crashing and losing the record of all my votes. still miss pico tho...

Hey tom, I sent an e-mail to you about a problem I havr but you didnt respond. When I vote on movies it wont record my exp, no matter how many I vote on. So I asked Wade who was kind enough to answer, he sais I need to turn my cookies on, so I did, it still wont work, and I do have flash 6. whats the problem? and whats the use of voting when you only change it by 0.002?

Hey you know what I hate the logging out every 20 minutes like everybody else. I tell you guys to remember my crap and you dont. I hate typing in my name and password which rymes with larkie. I hate this stuff also the voting thing needs to be a cached pico some people says pico is to boring. I agree with them Pico is really boring he should do more while still making the file size under 56k so most 56k users can vote and others withy macs can get pc's. Macs really suck they all suck dont switch to mac maybe less time to do stuff but also less performance. Users of newgrounds bring back a cached pico that does more.post your ideas and maybe Tom will pick one or maybe he wont i dont know the guy.

BOOOO!!! Take the war on terror movies off the main page! they suck! the war on terror is a load of bullshit, and i can not beleive that it is supported by such a good site as newgrounds. any support of this is insane! the war on terror is dumb, precisely because it is not a war. it consists only of the killing of innocent civilians, or i suppose 20 civilians for every 1 al queda, and all for the purpose of satisfying the american public, giving them a scapegoat, and in turn raising support for the dumbass george bush. and now, the illigitimate war on Iraq! YAH RIGHT! Iraq's military is in the 1960's. Bush wants to go in because Saddam wont let bush enter his own personal residences. The Bush presidency says this is because that is where the weapons are, but the problem is that back in the gulf war, alot of the weapons inspectors were actually israeli and american spies, documenting the locations of his residences for the future purposes of his assassination! FUCK! and really, the ulterior motive of invading iraq is just to secure America's oil interests, and avoid a total boycott like the one that happened in the 1973 arab israeli war, the one over the suez canal. this was the same purpose as the gulf war, which was also pointless, and ended with no american profit in the end. So, to sum up, fuck the War on Terror. If i could single-handedly blam all of these movies and games, i would. Please do that job for me, tom fulp. im begging you. Thanks alot. Peace.

Everything Still works Tom, and actually I like the text better because it's faster. but the pico animation is classic I think what you should maybe do is when someone signs up for an account or something you have the choice of either one. And once you sign up you and can always switch them whenever you like. That would be good for people with more than one computer. Also i dunno about the blam, but i think it would be the same. ****NOTE**** I've had errors when i triedvoting on movies from the front page. and movies on the portal that have an excellent score. every other movie i voted on worked. Well .. that's my 2 cents.

Ok heres the low-down i've been a user of newgrounds for 2 years now.. so ive seen this text in action it seems to have worked fine in the past and it works faster for 56k but the pico anim. is so classic that i actually want to take the time to watch it because break dancing pico is well, awesome but therein lies the problem one of 4 problems occurs with the pico animation
1. Doesn't load
2. Error, you do not have the latest version of flash please download it blah blah blah ( i know i have the latest version of flash)
3. the browser crashes and i lose my points..
4. i get so caught up in the great flashes on this site and get logged out
So tom please fix the database problems and scripting for us less fortunate 56k users who love to see flashes of pico break dancing and user flashes, and also love to immerse ourselves in the greatness ofNG games Thanks.
P.S. i know some of you may see my profile and say hey! hes a NG newbie well i actually just recently signed up for this name because i didn't really like my old one and plus there was a time when i didn't go on the computer at all so my email that was attached to the name is long gone so i couldn't retreive my long lost password oh well i like this name better (OH Damn there i go insanely ranting on and on again about nothing oops)

Peace out!

I like the Pico Animation, though I think smoother loading and less stress on the servers is more important really, so I'd go with the text version. I also write this because there seems to be some things not quite right in this new setup (however temporary it is). When I am viewing / reviewing a movie, sometimes I like to write a decent review. Twice now I have written a review with my details *apparently* logging me in automatically down the bottom of the review box. When I go submit, I have been time logged out or something and I cannot salvage my review, save going back, copying it and relogging on, reopening the windows and things.
I'm not sure if this is due to the new setup or maybe my stupid cookies that are playing up, but maybe a longer time period before logging off would be helpful :)

Yeah, while it was cooler, I was getting a lot more errors and stuff when the Pico animation was being used. Right now though the logging out automatically thing is bugging the crap out of me because if it happens before i get my votes in it goes back to zero. Ahhhhh... but if Wade says its going to be fixed, it will be fixed.

You know what motherfucker? Go spew that non sensical bullshit elswhere. Nobody here wants your camel jockey opinion. If you don't like the U.S., get the fuck out! Go live in Afghanistan or Iraq and live your life in misery with all those hateful, worthless, non-human beings. Bitch.

well first it's working much better for me i can see if my vote went thru and all with the old system. and i got a regular old blam when i blammed something the other day. so it should be working fine

AND ONE MORE THING... I'm not 100% sure what will happen when you BLAM a movie on this old version of the code. If anyone blams a movie, let me know if everything works ok - there should be a fun oldskool blam animation that pops up if everything still works.

i'm glad the old style is on because my computer is too slow to load the page and it took forever. i mean don't get me wrong the pico voting system fucking rocked but it lagged bad on some computers

Since the log-off problem has brought voting to the center of attention, why not also address another issue - the necessity to vote on five movies before getting ANY permanent experience. While I can understand the reasoning behind the idea (to keep certain people from spamming the network with votes or dominating the portal too much), the system has proven its weakness. Could we not have the xp from votes automatically deposited with EVERY vote, and THEN maxing the xp per day to, say, fifty? That way, casual members can watch the latest flick and then go to bed if they want, and the more hardcore voters can get a little more credit for their efforts.

When you log on instead of closing the Gold Menu try minimizing it while you are logged on, it's the only way I can stay logged on recent;y.

Fulp, you're the man. I really liked the Pico voting system, it made voting a lot of fun. But, honestly, I've been having trouble voting with both Pico AND with text, so either way I haven't donated points to my account in like 2 weeks because every time I get a few in, it resets and tells me I have "4 more" to do again, and it's just terrible to try and vote at all. I hope that once you figure out how to cache the voting program it'll go more smoothly, but I don't know if it'll make any difference for me.
