Release Party!
Acehuge
Hello and welcome to Witendofi! A special warm welcome to you if you've not been a alpha/beta tester the past week or so. You get to enjoy the full release experience - mmm.

So, the first thing you should do is register. All the links you need are in the navigation bar at the top. Once you've registered, read this article -> (http://witendofi.com/blogs/2) to have a brief overview of the site.

Don't forget to also customise your profile. A nice avatar will set you apart from the plebeians - and choose carefully, this Witendofi is weird and the avatars are circles, so you have to find an image that works well without its corners.

There's already a lot going on in the forums - catch up on some stuff and join in!

ITT let's be excited and ask questions and give answers and talk to Alain and Carlos ok

edit: could use some %20bbcode%20Alain

Yes yes, URL bbcode should be done in like a day. Very happy to have finally launched something and it was a lot of fun to make, too.

Weren't you a big part of the original OCW launch?

Yes, sorry Ace, I mean something in my "modern years" of programming.

Oh man you guys the posts are coming in fast, the 'users online' is full of nostalgic pseudonyms... it's like Christmas come a little bit late. I had nothing to do with the development of this site (except from friggin' sweet testing), but I do get all giddy on release day. Eee!

What is the secret to the circle avatars? What "dimensions" or aspect ratio is best for them, because mine is obviously derping right now.

Square, as large as you can get. If you want your whole head to fit inside the circle, you might want to pad your image out a bit.

They are resized as 100 by x. (https://s3.amazonaws.com/witendofi/users/avatars/000/000/022/thumb/Untitled-1.png)

Yes, we will have a cropping tool so that the avatars won't be so finicky. Unfortunately we weren't able to get them done for launch.

Because you had to chose the very complex shape of circle avatars after you predicted they'd become more popular after OS X made it the log in thing. Tongue Tongue

I keep seeing new names on the 'users online' bit on the homepage and it's like "that guy?! I thought he was dead!"

Latest: apa! We made his avatar collaboratively that one time. Maaaaan!
