aSCIIaRENa is Officially Open!
« on: November 20, 2009, 08:26:32 PM »
In case you wondered what Spot/Up Rough has been up to lately, here's your answer:
I have been busy learning PHP/SQL/HTML. Five months later, here's the result...


Up Rough and Divine Stylers presents:



aSCIIaRENa - the new home for the ASCII Scene is now officially launched!
 
aSCIIaRENa aims to be THE resource for Scene ASCII, as well as a database of artists and crews.
But not only that, you can vote and comment on collys.
Users can and are encouraged to submit ASCII Collections, ASCII Mags and ASCII related apps.

The site has the usual features, a tag wall, a forum, private messages etc.
The main feature is that it displays ASCII 100% accurate, just like in CED on your old 1084 monitor
on you Amiga thanks to the use of  Ansilove that has been improved to fill the needs of aSCIIaRENA.

Credits:

Main Coding: Spot / Up Rough^diViNe sTYLERs
Add Coding: Cleaner (Ansilove), Yonx / Up Rough
Fonts: dMG / diViNe sTYLERs

Thanks to:
Yonx, for being my SQL/Coding tutor through many long nights!
dMG, for being the main beta tester, and for asciiarena.com!
Ziphoid for hosting the site and for endless help/love/support, and for providing chill music via SceneSat!

The site needs a modern browser with support for embedded fonts,
so forget about the Amiga browsers for now. OWB might support it in the future, and Firefox should be available soon.
Now, head over to aSCIIaRENa and have fun!

nice....

Internet Explorer sucks. Upgrade to the latest version and retry.
Download Internet Explorer here! (Not recommended)
Download Firefox 3.5 here! (Recommended!)


My translation... your browser is not bloated enough, increase your bloat and try again.

No 1oo% group listing?  You forgetting Up Rough member Dipswitch's old groups?  :P

Looks good.  Why no Firefox 3.0x?

Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(

No chance to overcome the error message with OWB 1.4 here... Tried several spoof IDs, no luck. I don't like sites that don't let you in. At least a partly wrong rendered page is better than no page at all.

Agreed, a wide range of browser support doesn't appear to be one of the outstanding features.

You are using IBrowse. Amiga rulez!
aSCIIaRENa utilises functions not present in IBrowse.
Please Upgrade to FF 3.5+, IE 8, Opera 10 or later.

OK, it tells me that my computer "rulez" and then tells me to upgrade to a web browser which doesn't run on it.  Nice.  I don't own an IBM clone so I can't see what the site is about, but surely the prime benefit of ASCII art is that it's viewable in anything?  Hell, I'd be expecting it to work in Mosaic! :)

Wow! The site is beautiful.  Love the color scheme, font, the black on gray when viewing a txt.  Just awesome.

(Opera 10.10 rc3)

Back in my day, we didn\'t have water. We only had Oxygen and Hydrogen, and we\'d just have to shove them together.

I am using Origyn and my OS4.1 machine and it told me I was using Safari and to basically go away and get a real browser :P

It's like BBS goodness! I love it!

Maybe you should post the link for this at BBSMates.com? I know a bunch of people would love it.
