Yes, it’s been quiet around here lately hasn’t it? I’ve got a few things going on:
I’m finishing my thesis on Monday next week
I’ve been putting the finishing touches on http://www.stickscene.com
I’ve got two clients’ websites to build
Yep, I’m definitely a busy bunny!
So, about the new site, the premise is that people have to guess the film/TV series name from a simplified version of a poster, DVD box art, or a scene. Have a look on there to see what’s been made so far to get the idea.
Currrently there are a couple of bits of coding to add, but I could do with more content so I’m hoping people on here might be able to help.
Basically, you create an account using the ‘join’ menu option, then you can use the ‘submit puzzle’ menu option to create new puzzles for the site. When you’re creating a new puzzle, please check the details on http://www.imdb.com !
The best system of making the pictures I’ve found so far is to put the original image on one layer and then draw lines and sample the colours on layers over it. Personally I use Flash to make the pictures, but I’ve seen ones made in Photoshop or even Micro$oft Paint!
ALL IMAGES CAN ONLY BE UPLOADED IN .JPG FORMAT! This is due to the code involved in the watermarking feature.
After you have had five images approved then you can add a picture to your profile, and after ten you can add a link to a website. This will appear under your puzzles, hopefully giving you exposure to thousands of people every day! Hurrah!
This is still beta-test stuff, so if you have problems please let me know. There’s a forum on there too, which is a good place to post any comments that you have, http://www.stickscene.com/forum/ .
