aSCIIaRENa is Officially Open!

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!

Now, head over to aSCIIaRENa and have fun!

Extremely cool.

I'm wondering whether the EAB forum would look better in ASCII itself! Imagine the speed compared to VB

Make it so number one

If ascii so so cool, why are they using a PNG (picture of ascii?) as there page title rather then straight acsii?

it's a script converting ascii->png to make it as close as the original amiga experience as possible.. using normal truetype fonts just doesn't cut it since they are rendered differently depending on os/browser.. where png can't be used because of practical reasons the site use the new feature in CSS3 to embed a special-made topaz, but it renders awfully bad on osx because of the auto-antialias..

Whoaaa. Very good stuff.

I especially love that cool font which lets people get real nostalgic because it's sort of reminiscent of "golden" BBS days...
