The Flash 'Reg' Lounge 2006-09-28 11:07:14 Reply

Been debating making a thread like this for a long time, but i think that it may be a good idea and it may serve as a catch-all for all the debates and things that can benefit from personal opinions on matters.

The Universal Rules

1-The reason its called the 'Reg' lounge is because it isnt so much about being a regular on the board as it is being a 'regular' to the flash scene and i want to make that distinction very clear. Disrespectful behavior, and or arrogance because you have 2XXXXX posts is untolerated and you'll be booted. Noobs to the board are allowed just as much as the seasoned poster.

2-This thread is not to get feedback on movies/actionscripts its to talk about the flash scene and your opinion on other related matters, debating is ok, polling is not.

3- Have Fun. If you are gonna get bent out of shape over a bbs thread then you probably should just unplug your computer and never plug it again.

Welcome Flash nerds!

I hate the kind of reg threads that aim to exclude anyone who may visit the forum, theres some clique threads in general where you cant ever have a say in unless you were involved in that thread since page 1.. otherwise the 'regs' dont ever give you the time of day. I do think that the thread would be good for discussions like Glaiels V-cam rant, where people who are regulars to flash can come in and discuss it.
And furthermore I didnt claim it was my idea.. thats silly no?

And lastly, i take back the use of the term 'flash nerds' i didnt realize some of you were so sensitive about it. I meant no disrespect on your rockstar lifestyle.

welcome back <3

Anything that the regs want to talk about that is outside the actual scope of the Flash forum, or is ridiculous enough that it probably shouldn't warrant its own thread.

And yay for a Regs thread. Hopefully Luis won't be kicking himself in the ass over this one.

Well one thing we could discuss that i've always wondered is how people feel they fit into the flash scene.. both in the present and future... is it something you are definately looking to persue professionally? is it just a hobby? Or maybe you've already outgrown it and now just see yourself as just a viewer rather than developer.

Soo... What styles of flash are favouroured over the other?

I personally like FBF (I cant do it well though, Tweens FTW)

And I dont think people should be so hard on sprite movies, I dont mind them, and I might even make my own one soon..

I'm suprised I've been as interested for as long as I have been.

I think it's not a matter of me outgrowing the scene, but the scene outgrowing me. Front page Standard when I came here originally was any video game parody toon that was over two minutes long using tweened characters. Now you have to deliver a multiplayer golf game, or a sweatshop produced frame by frame epic if you want a chance of reliably hitting front page.

I can't keep up with that kind of thing.

Good ice-breaker sir.

For me, it's kind of a hobby, but I guess you can consider it professionally because we do bring in some money...

Personally, I get a thrill from making Flash games because i find it amazing how quickly they can spread around the internet if it's a good and addicting games.

So I would like to peruse it professionally.

Oh yeah Lu, I'm home sick from school today, so I'm going to annoy you a lot.

I plan on moving on to Flash as a personal career after this year of school. I've had some good job offers for many different kinds of Flash jobs, which is exciting, since I thought Flash would be pretty much a dead end after college.

Awesome, been waiting for something like this for a while.

The unfortunate part is that if the Artist Showcase thread (previously known as the underground Flash Reg's Lounge :-P) will probably die as flash regs hang out here instead. That is.... unless it's moved to the art forum and becomes the underground art reg lounge.

In the distant future I can say I posted on the first page of the legendary 1000000 page Flash Reg Lounge Thread :P

No more animated sigs. :(

Yeah the flash scene is pretty hot right now, specially in the gaming department because games are so viral and generate alot of clickthroughs... Flash was always one of those monumental web tools that forever changed the scene. To have animated things that were fairly low in filesize was unheard of back then when i was involved in the gif animation scene..

I find it kind of cool how so many people were able to use ng as a stepping stone to a career. Its always exciting to look back on peoples work and know you've been around from the beginning of their careers... you know?

I am planning to move into Multimedia Game Developement.. So flash is a little headstarter for me, actionscript may not be the hardest code to learn, but with the power of actionscript and VB on my side, ill be able to learn C++ faster.. (hopefully)

Also, with experience on flash, it makes game concepts, designs, and gameplay much better to understand.
