Yay or nay fellow Stickpagians?

I personally believe the new Stickpage should have a Pivot Portal, the reasoning behind this is quite simple, out of the three main animating programs used on SPP, Pivot is not only the most popular, it's also the only one designed for animating stickmen.

With the coming loss of the Art Portal, I belive that there's atleast a slim chance for a Pivot Portal.


What say you?

Feel free to challenge my views btw, I'm in a debating mood.

Yay.
A pivot portal would just be so original, all other pivot sites don't have a functioning one...anymore.

Atleast all the crap will get filtered to the pivot portal... hopefully.

No matter how what kind of blam feature we add, it'll still turn out worse than the current flash portal

Hows this for a system:

If a low score and lots of DELETE THIS is put in, part of a team watch it and decide Y / N

If you say, that will take time, THATS YOUR JOB AS A MODERATOR.

Our jobs as moderators aren't to devote our entire social lives to a stick figure animation forum. Zulu obviously doesn't expect that of us or else he would be paying us for our services.

Low ratings don't mean shit especially on this site where people give low ratings to people's animations out of spite or create multiple accounts to get higher ratings on their own animations. And you're neglecting the fact that there would still be the flash portal to look after.

Doooooooon't do it.

Also, I see no reason that a pivot portal shouldn't be made. Possibly have a post limit on the forums before you can upload anything there, though. Since a lot of people will post their poorly done animations. Just make it the same as the link posting limit or something.

I say yay to the pivot portal only because of the focus on stick figures. Pivot is also the worst animation program to ever be made, so I'm also drawn in the middle on this. People who are good at pivot come in far rarer supply than good flash animators because of the completely limiting ways of working. Pivot deserves a portal here and a really high standard for submission due to the shittiest animations that will obviously come.

It wouldn't be hard to make. Just limit the art portal to animated gifs or copy the art portal and do such. It would probably take one week to develop or less if I'm overestimating the creation of portals.

Putting a top of the week or whatever at fewer movies than the flash ones per week would encourage better films and limit any horrible things shown on the front page. (stick figures have dirty doodoo intracourse part 2)

Maybe we should put a bit more of a hold on the idea. =/

No. There are countless sites devoted entirely to pivot where most of the good people hang out anyway.

It would just be another trainwreck.

If there would be a pivot portal.. I wouldn't mind making shorts.

Also, there not only should be a post limit but also a person who judges wether or not it should be submitted. I'd be glad to be that person.

Also.. 1 upload a day per person.

I don't see any problem with it though. It'll turn out like the Flash Portal. Random crap appearing, no-one cares anymore.

Saha

I know. But I think there shouldn't be a problem keeping it active since there should be lots of challanges and shit.

Maybe people can ACTUALLY vote on whos better and whos not.

This isn't of whos better. This is about getting on tha front page.

HOLY SHIT!
The poll is neck to neck D:

I voted no.

Its only because theres so much crap on the FLASH portal (even though flash is supposedly better than pivot) that if there was a pivot portal we'd be up to our knees.
I dont even think the flash portal is any good, personally, because the voting system is so corrupt, with people voting only on their favourite authors etc etc, Im against any sort of portal with the voting mechanism that we currently have.


Maybe if there was a new system chim :/



And if there IS gonna be a section for pivots, i suggest that it gets put with the flashes. That way the good pivoteers still get to shine, the bad ones just get blammed if they fall below a universal standeard for both programs.
Although fi that were to happen there would really need to be something which told you whether the anim was flash or pivot, because if there was no warning Id start to get pretty annoyed personally.

Wtf

You had to take the Art down didn't you..

I vote yey

Pivot is not only the most popular.
Agreed, that way there wont be as many useless threads of people posting garbage like "testing this out".

NOOOOO

DISASTER, DISASTER, STATISTICS SHOW THAT 98% OF PIVOT ANIMATIONS SUCK, AND A PIVOT PORTAL WOULD ADD A WHOLE NEW SECTION OF "GHEY" TO SPP. IF YOU THINK THE FLASH PORTAL SUCKS, WAIT TILL YOU SEE THE "PIVOT PORTAL".

Come to think of it, half of the stuff in the Art Portal are Pivots, so it makes no differance.
