revitalization - revival: bringing again into activity and prominence

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” - Henry Ford


Something we all want for this place is for it to strive for success; we want to bring in newcomers to our site, we want animations and sprites to be the focus of this place; we want other places to know that we are theSpritas, just like in the days of old...

TheSpritas as it is right now has none of the redeeming qualities it used to have; we don't have members who are striving for success, sprites and animation are not the focus here anymore; and we're bringing in new people every once in a while, but it's often a toss-up as to whether or not they ever remember this place. We should all get together and work to rekindle that fiery passion theSpritas once had. We can do this.

So where do we start? Well, like SXR said, "We should take a step back and think about what we can do to improve the site..."

The beginning of any large-scale, successful project always begins with the planning. We need to brainstorm ideas that will send this site on a one-way collision to success. Here are a few great ideas, again by SXR, that I firmly believe will help us achieve our goals:


- We need to make the site better for newcomers, and try to enforce the rules we're supposed to follow but let slide because it's just so... well... easy.

- We need to advertise the site a little, instead of just putting the logo onto our videos, we need to make some videos FOR the site. We need a mascot, one that isn't mario or sonic or megaman or whoever. we need an ORIGINAL idea.

- We need to stop being so harsh and assholeish to each other, we need to be more open to the newcomers, no matter how young they may be. We should be ready to help anyone who needs it.


All of these are very good ideas that we should work on if we want to make this site, our site, a better place. Come on, guys, we can do this!

WE are TheSpritas!

UPDATE1: Yeah, so there's been a good amount of activity in this thread with some REALLY good ideas! This is what we need guys, keep them coming!! I think with all these ideas we should outline them into an orderly fashion. So lemme do that real quick...

List o' Ideas:
- Enforce the rules more (SXR)
- Start advertising more and put our name out there (SXR)
- Create an original mascot (SXR)
- Be a nicer community (SXR)
- Make animations the focus of the site by moving the Animations Section to the top of the page (BDB)
- Re-Design done completely in pixels/sprites (D3)
- Point system for animations to encourage higher quality animations (D3)
- Pixel Art Banner (YS)
- Move to the New Site (Joey/BDB)
- A better Animation system set up to encourage more animations (D3)

Zing!
If I missed your idea lemme know by commenting here or PM me directly!

So ALL of these are amazing ideas. I KNOW for a FACT we can come together and get these things completed. I do have a few concerns though.

My biggest concern is the idea about moving to the new site. I am 100% for the idea of moving to the new site, however, we should find out from Mr. Lange why he and Eric do not want this (as stated by the Joe). Mr. Lange is definitely a prominent figure here and has pushed this community to great lengths; we ought to listen to what he has to say. (Of course, if he doesn't show up in like a month or something then I am completely fine with us taking things into our own hands!) I just think we ought to wait a bit first to see what he has to say about that particular idea.

NOW, some things I noticed is that some of you have similar ideas. For example, D3 and YS would like to see more pixel art incorporated into the site here so maybe you two could get together and collaborate to get some things started. Of course it's not only going to be just you two, though, I am going to help wherever I can (even though I suck at spriting) and I imagine other members here will do the same.

Additionally, if there is code to be adjusted at the new site then Joey and I will collab there (As long as Joey doesn't mind me holding him back of course). And SXR and I have shown interest in getting this place more publicized so we could probably collab and think of some ways to get our name out there again.

All-in-All, I think this is coming together VERY nicely. If we put forth the effort then there ain't nothing that will stop us from achieving what we want to achieve!

UPDATE2: Ok, so a good number of people have expressed moving over to the new site and copying only the absolute most important threads over. So we should first get a list of such topics that should be copied over. To submit a post, make a comment to this thread with the Title of the post you feel should be copied over as well as a link to that specific post.

List o' Important Topics:
- How to sprite animate with flash by Eric
- Sprites for Dummies by Mr. Lange
- Splendid Flash Tips by Mr. Lange
- Splendid Sound Tips by Mr. Lange
- Splendid Computer Tips by Mr. Lange
- Mr Lange's Guide to Asking Questions by Mr. Lange
- How to get Motivation by Patt
- Swf to Video Conversion by Mr. Lange
- NS's Flash tutorial 1: V-CAM logo by NS01
- Front View Ground Moving Tutorial by LoneVeritas
- Line Art Tip by Joey
- Basic Splitscreen Tutorial! by DarkZeroXP
- Sprite tutorials by NS01
- Easy Dynamic Sound Control With Resume by Clovis15
- How to Live Life Without V-Cam by Clovis15
- Dynamic Animation, and Subtitle Toggles by Clovis15
- HOW TO MAKE SMOKE EFFECTS FOR DUMMIES by dabestbrawler
- How to make sword slashing gradients by Leaf
- [How-To] Remove Background Colors by Rapidfir3Pho3nix
- legit alfa gradient objects by supersmashbro

If you have any concerns please inform us! The most important thing that we should keep in mind is that we should make decisions as a group, so your opinion is very valuable!

P.S. If anyone wants to add me on Skype go right ahead. My SkypeID is rapidfir3pho3nix. Just search for that and you'll find me.

We need to organize a group and start working on some projects for the site. Animators, spriters, etc. People who can give ideas and give help to bring some flare back to the site.

I think this is the best idea in a long time. Idk how it'd be to code that, but that's really smart. It used to be like that in the Youtube group and i'd watch every single one. Its so much easier to watcch videos so more people will do it

Joey was working on something like that but then he took it off.

We need to get the site out there again and let people know that they're welcome here.

I vote to let Knux (as long as he wants to do it, or doesn't mind doing it/isn't busy with real life) draw our Mascot, then the spriters can make sprites out of him/her/it, the us animators can animate him/her/it!

But I agree SXR, we definitely need to organize some things together, and I also agree with the animations being at the top. I'm willing to help with the code for some things as long as Joey doesn't mind. I don't know the programming languages I need to know, but I am a programmer so learning those will be kinda easy for me.

So what should be our main goal as of right now?

I think improving the overall quality and social status of the site should be our main focus. If someone needs help, don't think twice to help them out. We can work on a short animated advertisement for the site once we have a mascot and an idea for the animation.

Well if you're not going to be helpful then I suggest you skidaddle outta this topic. I don't really care for the negativity you're spouting and if you're not going to help then go some where else.

And what we do anyway? i mean , thespritas FC? you're kiddin' right?

ugh doesn't matter.

Maybe we can do a collab and post it in all the sites , showing what thespritas nembers an do.

(I'm not entering anyway because I'm still learning)

And maybe we can show what we do on thespritas to help the others out.

I don't think our Mascot would be a Fan Character, if anything it would be an original creation. Anyways, we don't need to focus on that right now.

I agree that improving our quality and societal status should be of high priority right now, but I don't know if that should be our highest priority at this very moment. I wanna know what a few other notable people think we should do as well...

But I definitely agree that getting our name out there again is definitely a high priority. In what ways can we accomplish this?

not a fan character, an ORIGINAL character. A character of our own design and not editted from any existing game. Having a mascot is something every company does. Disney has Mickey, Warner brothers have Bugs Bunny, Nintendo has Mario and Sega has Sonic.

This is for the site and the site alone. We can ask others to affiliate with us, we can try and round up some new members. The advertisement will tell everyone what this site does and how it will help.

Before any of that, we need to be nicer and more social to each other. We can't keep being harsh and mean to each other just because we know we can take it or because we know we don't take it seriously.

Didnt jayden say something about helping? Then again, he's usually on the vortex now, I'd check out that site for ideas. We def. need a redesign, sure the retro look is keen and all but, the way I see it, if one of us made a sprite/sheet and it was vaguely detailed, it would be as if we murdered 10 babies and ate their legs for the hell of it. I think the new design(if we were to ever get one should be strickly sprited) Lurfleman is pretty dam good at spriting, and so is DBB and Jayden(if hes no occupado w/ the Vortex). The portal could use a makeover, re-establishing the anim of the week(actually have an anim of the week even if all week we get shit anims). This would motivate others to animate more.

Maybe make a cool point system like we have except not for posting the most nonsense but for animation quality, have points for both animating and spriting. The points determined would be on a 1-10 poll that would be up for a week when the animation or sheet is posted(theyd have to be completed work), the poll would cover key things in animation like fluidity, creativity, sound, etc. then average out the totals for the points that'll be added to theyre overall, kinda like a grade system at school. Or have stats so people themselves can see what theyre peers think they are lacking in so they can strive to better it since they'll be looking at it whenever they post.Name:_________ Stats; Creativity:4 Fluidity:9 Sound:3(abusing dbz sounds), this person would know to be a bit more creative and stop making Sonic shoot kamehamehas while blasting dbz effects.

Theres a lot that can be done. I cant not be an asshole though...

It's kinda sad, because the site Joey was working on really emphasized everything on animation. Like he made a critiquing system and had links to animations show up on the front page.

We def. need a redesign, sure the retro look is keen and all but, the way I see it, if one of us made a sprite/sheet and it was vaguely detailed, it would be as if we murdered 10 babies and ate their legs for the hell of it. I think the new design(if we were to ever get one should be strickly sprited) Lurfleman is pretty dam good at spriting, and so is DBB and Jayden(if hes no occupado w/ the Vortex). The portal could use a makeover, re-establishing the anim of the week(actually have an anim of the week even if all week we get shit anims). This would motivate others to animate more.

Maybe make a cool point system like we have except not for posting the most nonsense but for animation quality, have points for both animating and spriting. The points determined would be on a 1-10 poll that would be up for a week when the animation or sheet is posted(theyd have to be completed work), the poll would cover key things in animation like fluidity, creativity, sound, etc. then average out the totals for the points that'll be added to theyre overall, kinda like a grade system at school. Or have stats so people themselves can see what theyre peers think they are lacking in so they can strive to better it since they'll be looking at it whenever they post.Name:_________ Stats; Creativity:4 Fluidity:9 Sound:3(abusing dbz sounds), this person would know to be a bit more creative and stop making Sonic shoot kamehamehas while blasting dbz effects.

Theres a lot that can be done. I cant not be an asshole though...
yeah thats a good idea the points makes alot of sense and would make me want to make better quality animations  
Exactly. Nobody wants the fact that they suck to be displayed, theyll work hard to better themselves.

In addition/ an edit I was adding:

Add tropheys or achievements/medals for different things. Encourage battles, shitmaybe have the design thing on the top of the site show off some of our star FC's. Its a site about making and animating sprites, lets show off the work that we've made ourselves. Quote, Noll, Aege, Saito, Mojo, That Squirrel chicka, Kaden(observe mah sig, kurbi got a new makeover so should the site), Kaige, Jodie, Sean(DBB other OC), Inu, Sareo, Hiryo, etc, etc. Encourage sprite battles w/ FCs/OCs. One of the best things about the stick anim site I used to be on was the constant challenging each other w/ our made up characters. If there wasnt an people were always challenging each other and bettering themselves. Shit, make sprite battles too, who can construct the best scenery, make the better sprite, not all challenges has to be 2 characters fighting. Twist shit up, who can make the most serene animation. I'd be animating out the ass if I had the time, but since I dont, Im just revamping Kurbi(Kaden now) and once his sheets done, I will be distributing it

Post up Tutorials, ALL KINDS OF TUTORIALS. You see some cool shit on the Tube, post that bitch in the Tuts section.

STOP HATING ON MAPLES!!! Most maple anims Ive seen are pretty dam good. Let them in, are they not also sprite animators, and if they suck, help them


@BDB: What happened to the site?
