    KoolExchange

    We now have a file repository for the free exchange of KoolMoves animations.

    www.koolexchange.com

    It was created by Wilbert using KoolMoves components. We are still putting together a Terms of Use statement.

    This was announced yesterday inside another posting. It was felt that is should have a posting of it own.

    Thanks Remus.

    I did the best I could to make it useful and small so it will also work fine for users with a slow connection.

    Very nice! What file types are being accepted? I can't seem to open Laurence Henshall's
    Dynamic Gallery.

    Accepted file types are .zip and .fun .
    The problem you had should be fixed now. The filename of the archive Laurence submitted has a space in it that most likely is causing the problem. I'm replacing spaces with underscores now to solve this. Let me know if it works.

    Does that make 'fun with backends' still needed ?

    It's easy to implement but my concern is that if a user changes domains the links aren't working anymore.

    Please submit again Chris.

    I was just implementing the url link possiblity you asked for. That messed up your upload. It's possible now to add a support url.

    The problem I have is that for some reason the browser crashes if I place a link in a dynamic textfield. It might have to do with the ability to scroll the contents of the grid, I'm not sure. I soved it for the name with a transparent movieclip that has a fixed height. If the name is that long that it will cover two lines, only the top line is clickable. For the author that was a bit more complicated. Instead I added an extra icon. I hope that works for you.

    Wilbert

    Ok...not sure what to reupload. I just submitted my fourth which showed instantly. The first three did not and still don't. I assumed awaiting approval. Are the first three missing?

    Don't worry about it. It's all taken care of automatically from now on. It's not a problem anymore. If you submit such an archive again the person who downloads it just gets the same name with spaces replaced by underscores.

    Sorry, I did not explain my problem very well. I can not open the Dynamic Gallery download. On the download site it says the file is an application download. It is not a .fun or zip. file. There is no file type type.

    Updating submissions

    Have we given thought to how to allow posters to update a submission?

    Let's say we realize we need to change something in a submission, can we have it deleted or updated somehow?

    I guess you would just have to upload a new one and mention it's an improved version or contact me. I don't want contributers to be able to update something. That would result in a lot of problems. It would require a complete user registration system and each update would have to be reviewed again to see if it's okay. You just have to make sure a contribution is how you want it before posting. Of course there can be updates but if they are once in a few months I don't see any problem if there are more versions online if the version number and improvements are mentioned. I'm sure if I would spend a lot of time creating the ability to update a version there would be contributers who keep changing it. That just won't work.
