Developments on AG

We would like to welcome Tassoline to the ArtGrounds team! He will be working closely with me to finish ArtGrounds version 3.0. His primary focus will be on PHP, JavaScript, JQuery, and AJAX.

TL;DR: He will be pioneering the changes to the Shoutbox so start spamming your requests to him :-D

I apologize for the issues that many of you have noticed over the past several months regarding the forums, registrations, etc. These will be fixed soon.

For those of you who are interested, we still need additional coders that are proficient in the following technologies: HTML 5, CSS 3, PHP, MySQL, Javascript, JQuery, and AJAX.

Additionally, we also need template and skin designers for the new ArtGrounds 3.0 site. Benefits of being a template/skin designer is that you can help design the "look and feel" of the site as well as try it in BETA before everyone else. Template designers must know HTML 5, CSS 3, and PHP. Skin designers only need to know how to illustrate.

I would also like to thank our wonderful staff whom are often the under-appreciated silent crusaders assisting users and keeping me in-line:


And for those of you who have stuck by us over the years, thank you. :-)

You must log in to post.

But as AscheVBlau has made pretty clear, we need to have an active userbase to get things rolling again. I miss drawing with friends too.

C# and am currently reading up on database admininstrating. So maybe I can be of some help and service after may next year.

(Male)MrPanda on Nov 24, 2015 9:59:37 AM

So maybe I can help a bit later with the coding when I'm done with the studies after may next year. I've been reading HTML5, CSS3, MYSQL, T-SQL, Json, AngularJS

Just glad to see that the page is still up. Am studying to become a systemdeveloper with specializing in cloud services and .NET applications.

Is anyone else getting a ton of spam comments from coxclaiborne? I can't find an option to delete comments and they're pretty long, full of random ad code.

Also I just talked to my friend, she is willing to donate 30$ and spread the word also. I can also try to find followers that know code.

AscheVBlau on Nov 16, 2015 3:13:15 AM

but I can try and help you get this site up and running again with a bunch of new users. I miss drawing with friends.

AscheVBlau on Nov 16, 2015 2:55:47 AM

Here was the post.

AscheVBlau on Nov 16, 2015 2:54:17 AM

I can't code, sadly. I can only help gain interest. If I get my followers to join, they will get their followers, and so on. I would love to see it back up.

AscheVBlau on Nov 16, 2015 2:50:33 AM

I made a post about missing the site and talked about and a good amount of people seemed interested but sad they couldn't make accounts.

AscheVBlau on Nov 16, 2015 2:49:08 AM

I have almost 6000 followers on tumblr and over 2000 watchers on DA, I'm sure I can help bring this site back to life.

AscheVBlau on Nov 16, 2015 2:48:34 AM

If I were redoing ArtGrounds and Sketcher today, I would probably put the source code out on GitHub and hope that a team of contributors formed there.

(Male)Thor on Nov 13, 2015 7:29:30 AM

Requests for donations were similarly unsuccessful. Nice words from everyone, but people weren't willing to back their words up with actions.

(Male)Thor on Nov 13, 2015 7:20:35 AM

Very few were willing to put any time and effort into helping out with further development. It made me think maybe people just didn't care that much.

(Male)Thor on Nov 13, 2015 7:19:28 AM

I always wanted the community to contribute, but volunteers failed to show up, so it's always just been me alone who had to do everything. It gets lonely.
