Um, where is the WIP forum?

Recommended Posts

I've looked on a few devices now and it seems to have disappeared for me. Is it there for everyone else?

Apologies. Its still here but now up at the top under Featured/A:M Films:

Sorry for any confusion and please pardon the dust.

I've been organizing the forum to get it ready for... something. :)

 

My attempt to keep the WIP forum up near the top didn't quite work out.

Please let me know if you still can't find it.

It should.

 

Here's a question for everybody though... maybe it's fodder for Polling forum membership?

 

How much imagery is acceptable up at the top of the forum?

Is -text only- at the top level ideal or not?

 

One of the reasons for the reorganization was that the WIP forum (along with several others) needed to be a little more prominent.

 

The TWO section (with both TWO and SO and all related topics) has temporarily moved under the TaoA:M forum under TWO University (for those who want to explore and learn movie making while visiting the Land of Oz). These and other community projects should also receive a high profile spot.

 

Please weigh in with your thoughts.

No takers? Everyone can find things and is happy with the way things are in the forum?

I can stop messing around and move on to other projects?

 

Robert... I've got that you would like the WIP to come back to the front level... but do you mean the images and/or just the forum?

My 'take ' on the forum splash page right now is that there is one big banner and several little ones... and the big one is terribly up-ressed. Other than the fact that I think they all should get equal billing, I like the banners... I may ask to eventually get one... 'BigBoote's Digital Hair Salon'... once I get my crap together!

 

I really-really look forward to what you have up your sleeve for the forum, Rodney... breath a little FRESH AIR into this thing.

I think WIP should be a topic you see when you first get to the forum rather than a sub forum of A:M films.

 

I'd put the main Animation:Master forum listed first, then WIP , then A:M films or Tutorials maybe in that first big box

 

Then the special topic/artist forums in the next box

I don't think you should be seeing any forum splash page right now.

...and even in the A:M Films/WIP area the terribly uprez'd one should be gone.

 

Let me know if you are still seeing something else.

(Perhaps it's your cache?)

To me the Wip forum should be at the toplevel first section you stumble upon.

 

Its the most active, representative and interesting section of them all, be it for newbies or longtimers.

 

Why hide the best stuff underneath the often outdated filmstuff,

the more because wips also can contain stills, so that is kind of misleading also.

I agree!

 

Sorry, but It just doesn't work very well like it is right now

Yeah, I really quite dislike this current layout. For one, it's hard as heck to find, I was scared it had all been deleted at first and second, it doesn't make sense. Not every WIP is an AM:Film, so having it under that category doesn't even make sense logically. I personally like having the WIP and Featured Projects right on the mainpage.

 

As for the imagery aspect, I personally am all for things to be more graphical, especially where this is a site for artists really.

Thanks for the e-mail Rodney.

 

I agree with others, but that might just be that I post most regularly in the WIP section.

Would it be prudent/possible to perhaps center the featured video thingy on the main board?

It would and will. Rather than temporarily change it now though I think it best to wait.

These changes are minor compared to what may be coming our way.

 

The only reason it isn't centered now is that I forgot to center it. A few weeks ago...during the initial test...it was centered.

 

If three people say 'Center it!' it shall be centered. :)

I'm having visions of the opening to 2001: A Space Odyssey....are the changes that big, or is that just my imagination running wild again?

Yours and mine both!

 

(Poetry time)

Reality is a sobering effect

when we arrive to face it.

Visionary exaggeration in our dreams

seldom tempers our expectation.

But if we look to the incremental changes

then we'll be surprised

hopefully impressed.
