FOSS stands for Free Open Source Software

The concept of FOSS is that since there are a lot of developers several things will occur:

1)People will develop it quickly, because ANYONE can improve it

2)If you need a plugin for it you can just make it yourself since you have access to the code, you can just ask a developer to do it since they have access to the code as well

3)By looking at the code you can learn a lot

FOSS is not a new concept, a lot of things run by it today, Linux and Firefox are the 2 most widespread software that are handled with FOSS.

On the flash forum, the best known "FOSS thread" so far was probebly "I've made a jumping engine for all

Instructions

-Start your thread's name with FOSS:
-These are a lot farer from tutorials then AS: Main is, these are 100% code
-Despite the last instruction, it should be well documented and explained, explain the code, not the concept
-ANYONE may make their FOSS: thread, if someone made a FOSS thread about the same subject yet you made a different code for the same task (and the code is NOT based on that thread's source code) do NOT post it on that thread, post it on a NEW thread
-Remmember, when you post your code ANYONE may use it, alter it, and submit with it, they have to give you credit though.

Good luck for us all :)

// I just made one :) this is about common api functions, your FOSS projects can be full engines or just lists of useful functions for a specific goal, I prefer the first type but I like seeing the second type done too

What are you talking about?
I never asked a forum from anyone, I suggested to make a new section for AS and FOSS threads.
You know,like there's general,programming,politics,flash, etc..
I know mods are asking tom to make a special section or front page button for AS: threads.
Stop being aggressive when you don't even know what you're talking about!

No comment.

Well, I think that AS and FOSS both fall under the Flash category.

I know mods are asking tom to make a special section or front page button for AS: threads.

How do you know that? Please post proof.

I wouldn't say that ah,bless is agressive. Also I have been on the bbs for about a year more than you, so I think that I do know what I am talking about.

Just so you know , there are plans.

I don't need to post proofs,Inglor, Liam, and many well known people can tell you that.
If you want proofs, just read AS: Main

Being more on Newgrounds doesn't mean being more intelligent,right?
I don't see how it has to do with anything!

I really hope that you get banned for posting that shit. That equals spam. You told me that I was spamming earlier on. Now you are spamming.

You are a hyprcrite. Come back when your balls have dropped.

You pissed me off.
I released my anger.
I didn't flame you.
