• Effective October 15th, all Youtube content threads that are posted within the creative media section will be subjected to being moderated before being displayed. Over the past year we've noticed lots of new members and a few old members that come here to advertise (obviously here since we're the largest Kingdom Hearts fan base community why wouldn't you) their Channel to promote new subscribers, likes, and displaying their media. However there is a huge difference between creative constructive media criticism, and borderline advertisement. So please, before you post here, understand how the creative media section works, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change please reach out, we always like to hear ideas. Few might not like this idea, but it does help keep my section stay organized and not crazy looking, I would like to keep the traditional platform of what the section main purpose is for. It's to help build new and old artistry to an entire whole level.



    Here's how it will work :

    • If you post a thread within the creative media section that is youtube content related to your channel, it will be moved to the "Creative Media Youtube Showing Content thread", a sticky'd thread where members can all over discuss and see everyones content all at once rather than making it self promoting, by making your own thread, if you get my drift. The whole idea behind this is to get members involved in everyones media, and the purpose is to showcase your works, but not self advertisement right? Its all about the constructive criticism and giving everyone the same feedback and layout of how display and showcasing video media should look like.

    • If you have already posted a thread regarding your youtube content, you will not be affected by this change and your thread will be untouched and you can continue to post and discuss accordingly with your peers.


    Social Media Advertisement Content :​

    Now I know lots of new members (out of the blue suddenly became youtube friendly, you're not slick) be-aware that you cannot use the Creative Media section as a gateway to advertise your media without wanting, giving and receiving criticism from your forum family. The idea behind the Creative Media is to help showcase and help improve everyones work or arts, whether it's digital, traditional, etc. Not to promote then leave, it's not fair to the community.

look i did a website

So for my final for my intro to interactive design class (fancy title for web design lol) we had to do a portfolio site, so might as well show it off. There are some issues I already know about, which are: need to change links in the gallery section so that when they're clicked on, they stay yellow (and not turn purple), need to find a way so that it calibrates for screen sizes, and if it doesn't, find a way for the background to move with the content sideways, just not up and down.

It is not suited for Internet Explorer, but I shouldn't have to tell you that.

SO YEAH, here:

SideGap Studios//

I also need to get a domain because I hate that long url off my professor's server.

This will be the site I consistently use and update so critique won't go unnoticed or unchecked.

I recently had to make a website too, for my computer class. It was both painful and fun.

I really like the look of the website, everything goes together perfectly. The thing I don't like about it though is the scrolling on some pages when there's nothing there. For example, the contact page, I would like it if it didn't scroll down as much as it does. Though, I think that might have to do with the resizing you mentioned. I can't really think of anything else for you to change other than the things you've mentioned. I'm bad at critiquing, I'm sorry. C:

​What program did you make this in?

An expedient reply? On KHI? Glory days.

Thanks! I can probably look into making the pages shorter; it's an easy change. I just wanted to make the length uniform on pages that don't have much content but that makes sense other wise.

I made it in Dreamweaver, which I love more than I hate. All the other elements were done in Photoshop (i.e. background and certain text, etc).

Any critique is better than none, so don't apologize. :]

Going through the pages, everything has a very uniform and tidied aesthetic to it. I really love that sketch of Alphonse and "The Regular".
When you slide (again as you've probably already said) the text overlaps with he brighter side of the page under (under the STUFF tab).

Gonna take a shot in the dark here and ask, is this your first website?

Yeah, that is something I've known about for a litttllleee while, and still have yet to fix, because 20 or so pages is not something that sounds fun to go through. ;-;

It is my first fully fledged website. Prior to this, we re did a website that had too many parameters and no one got it done lol, and before that was this: ://CSSZenGarden redesign of that page w/ the same content so like, it's not that much considering it's only one page.

Thanks! It's nice knowing people looked through my art on it too.

I find it really awkward how everything is placed on the right side of the page and by default (at least for my resolution) a bit of the material is cut off. I just have a hard time dealing with content placed on the right side of the page when the page isn't fixed.

Content cut off is one of the things I have to change. Right side is intentional, but on larger monitors where it wouldn't feel correct it's centered. Still trying to figure the bugs of all that out though. Thanks~
