Grats on 11k Luis =D

I'm at uni now, my room is huge, I mean, compared to what I thought it would be :D It's bigger than the room I had at home so.. cool. I'm SOMEHOW connected to the Internet, but idk how. I turned my laptop on and plugged in the Ethernet cable to TEST it (I'm not supposed to be able to connect to the Internet til I enrol and get a user+pass, on tuesday) and there was also a wifi connection available called "Free Public Wifi".. maybe I'm being naive and it's someone transmitting wifi and stealing all my datas D: But I'm not stupid and won't do anything.. sensitive. Anyway, yeah, so I got 3 connections - Network, Network 2 & Unidentified Network (the wifi).

Bahaha oh well.


Sup, bitches :)

School

In IT I find it amazingly easy. I'm in the top IT group but it's really easy and because we do such simple work I end up finishing the lesson objective in five minutes then waiting the rest of the hour and fifteen minutes. Most lessons I've got good teachers, but in geography my teacher is the biggest bitch I know. Gave me an hour detention for being less than two minutes late on my second ever day of school.

Review Rant

A rant I had on my userpage, I thought I'd share a smaller version here. Keep in mind that it's long and if you don't want to read a rant and reviews on blammed submissions then don't bother reading.

Here it is:

_root.rant.start { Ok, so I've recently started taking longer writing my reviews, for two or three submissions I've spent over half an hour on. Almost all the flashes I take over half an hour on get blammed. Meaning my review is lost and the author can't respond. I've attached 2 reviews that I've spend more than half an hour on and the submission has been blammed, keep in mind that I can't find the reviews that I've spent up to an hour on:

review1.start {

1. Submission - The Stick Fight - Rating: 8/10, 4/5- Review:

A well animated stick movie. Expand on it and you could get a good score.

A few tips:
1. Make an icon for it - People expect flashes without icons to be bad, therefore many users will vote 0 without watching it.
2. Give a more original name - With a title like 'The stick fight' users will vote 0, expecting the usual, crappilty animated, choppy animation.

Just those 2, having it look like that from the flash portal main page will make spam voters think it's of low quality and vote 0 without watching. Now, something about the actual animation:

Animation:9/10:
Very well animated, it caught the action well and impressed me a lot.

Sound:0/10:
No sound, add some and people will vote higher.

Art:No rating:
No background and objects, so all art will all fit into animation

Humour: No rating:
A simple fight animation, no humour needed.

Presentation:Again, no rating:
No menus or anything that would need to have good presenation

Preloader:5/10:
I'm glad you added a preloader, but I only give good marks for this if you created your preloader yourself.

Style:8/10:
I love stick figures but they're very overused.

Violence:10/10:
Very well done. Worked well.

V-Camming:9/10:
Excellent use of the V-cam technique.

Execution:10/10:
Very nicely created. It worked very well.

Overall A great flash. If this is blammed it will only be because of the spam 0 bombers voting before watching. Maybe add a longer, more constructive comment and keep working on this. If this was long enough, had a more original title and had sound it, you could well get featured on the frontpage.

review1.end
}

review2.start {

2. Submission - Garage V3- Rating: 7/10, 3/5 - Review:

Lets start out that I liked this flash but the idea of a 'design a car' flash is too unoriginal and this flash needs something to contrast it from the thousands of other flashes similar to this. This flash, instead of having hundreds of customisable features and addons, this flash seemed very plain and had very little to offer. A few suggestions for IF you want to create future games similar to this would be a way to swap the colour of the car, this could be achieved with simple coding on an MCs (PM me for if you want help and you're doing it in AS2, if you're using AS3 then I can offer no help) some decals (for example flames) some adjustable styles for things like tinted windows, lights, and boot through arrow buttons.

A few suggestions that would require a slightly more advanced knowledge of actionscript: Depth options, an option to swap the depth of the symbols used in the flash, Scale options, an option to scale the movieclips used in it. Rotation, not too advanced but it isn't VERY simple like those in the above paragraph.

There are more points that I've most probably forgotten but if I remember them I'll PM them to you.

review2.end

Both of these took long and the authors probably wouldn't know to look into the obituaries to see the review and therefore won't see the review meaning they wouldn't be able to learn from it.

I've spent long on those reviews, and a lot more, just to have them put into obituaries.

I'm also pissed off that those submissions were blammed because, a lot of them, were of high enough quality to pass. Compared to some of the flashes of half, or less, the quality of the submissions reviewed, whether the flash be spam, or just bad flash.

_root.rant.end.

That's all the rant, if you read it then I'm impressed. If you're a mod and you think it's too long then edit this post down.

Oh yeah I forgot : / Awesome game coolio (like most of your games :).) Only problem was that there wasn't quite enough command. If you were to make a sequel then I'd include some stuff like attack with patrolling enemies so you've got to calculate where the enemies will be. (The enemies will move a square when you do.) Might make the game require more though.

Haven't got thing on Kong because I cant connect to the chat servers :( I'm using chrome so that might be the problem. I don't know.

I skipped Bronze. The teacher who organises it at my school is hopeless, so I'm just going to skip straight to Gold, to avoid the aggravation twice. To give you some perspective as to just how useless she is, last year she lost everyones certificates, and taught my class the same lesson 6 times.
People say that if you skip straight to Gold you haven't got a hope in hell, but I'll persevere. =D

Hey flash people, I thought you all might appreciate this neat little test - you drag colored squares in order of hue and see how accurate your sense of color is. 0 is the best score - I got a score of 16. My parents got scores of 25 and 71.

apparently I'm bad with yellow-greens

lol what a useless sh*t that sucks you put hard work (i hope) and she doesnt, going straight t gold id gonna be tough, you have to do 1 years charity work and 1 year skill and 1.5 years of the same sport and a long hike up something like snowdonia or another biggish mountain, you have to plan your route you will take and have to have an objective for it like something about tree age or wildlife or rivers in different places and have to write something or present to your parent+ big crowd. so it takes a commitment but if you have someone more relyable as a leader, do it!

someone posted this a short while ago. 16 is a decent score, it doesn't mean you're bad with greens. I got 30 if it's any comfort to you :)

I got an 8 on my first try.

I don't know if this test is easier for programmers or artists honestly, programmers are good at looking at patterns and visualizing what goes between things and dealing with numbers but artists are better at visualizing how things look and knowing what colors go good together... but I don't know if that helps with ordering colors.

All this is distracting me from writing an essay on identity
