I'd like to change the screenshots of this demo for better ones: https://demozoo.org/productions/202488/

How can I delete the current ones?

Yoik - 15:50 25 April 2019 #

toms: You can't delete screenshots from prods, so it's better to leave it here and ask us what we should do. That being said, deleted. :)

toms - 17:03 25 April 2019 #

Yoik: thanks! Screenshots updated :)

leuat - 14:51 26 April 2019 #

Please edit the group info for "Proxima(pc)":

Proxima is originally an oldskool PC demogroup based in Norway, and was active between 1994 and 1999.

In 2019, Leuat (Jaws) decided to revive Proxima, with a focus on 8-and 16-bit productions.

Yoik - 17:02 26 April 2019 #

leuat: Done!

RufUsul - 11:26 17 May 2019 #

I just realised that we should merge these two tags:
https://demozoo.org/productions/tagged/ahx/
https://demozoo.org/productions/tagged/thx/

Probably the best way is to get rid of THX!
In case you don't know the story:
https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=13329#c314316

Should i do it manually or any other idea? ;-)

menace - 15:38 19 May 2019 #

@RufUsul: You are quite right, we should! If you would be so kind as to merge into ahx, that'd be grand. I'll go ahead and blacklist the thx tag in the meantime.

RufUsul - 19:33 19 May 2019 #

@menace: thx is now empty ;-)
blacklisting it is a great idea!

menace - 06:41 20 May 2019 #

Yup :) We have functionality in place, wherein we can blacklist a tag entirely, or forward it to another - so in this case, whenever someone enters thx, it autocorrects to ahx.

RufUsul - 11:23 20 May 2019 #

cool ;-)

Creonix - 11:04 6 June 2019 #

https://demozoo.org/parties/3850/ - I found this party with a different spelling so it did not go to the series, I fixed the letter, please add it manually to : https://demozoo.org/parties/series/993/

havoc - 14:57 6 June 2019 #

Do you also have functionality in place to prevent folks from adding bad Youtube captures? It seems not to be the case when looking at Rudi_SSR's edit history.

menace - 14:55 7 June 2019 #

I'll answer the last question in more detail, and more generally. On Demozoo, we try to be a friendly, welcoming platform for everyone and anyone interested in the demoscene, and not an elitist community where only a few participants are "good enough" to contribute. Calling out someone specificially for "bad" content is not a constructive way to address an issue, whether warranted or not.

As far as I can see, the user in question at least contributes stuff to the database, even though there are some edit wars going on, e.g. here - https://demozoo.org/productions/202337/history/ - that I'd rather we do not engage in. Naturally, we prefer captures of as high quality as possible to be added, from original hardware if possible for oldschool productions - but we'd rather have something than nothing, and I hope people are vigilant in searching to try and find the best possible ones.

menace - 14:56 7 June 2019 #

Creonix: Seems someone or other fixed it, because it's in the series now :)

havoc - 21:55 9 June 2019 #

menace: Great spin, good luck with that hope-for-quality-control strategy :)

mayday - 22:18 11 June 2019 #

Please delete these following productions, they're not my proper demoscene releases:

https://demozoo.org/music/96651/
https://demozoo.org/music/96649/
https://demozoo.org/music/96648/
https://demozoo.org/music/96636/

Gargaj - 18:44 22 June 2019 #

This is more of a question: All of the 2chParties are marked as non-online (https://demozoo.org/parties/1996/) but afaik they were strictly web-based? Or did that feature come later?

menace - 08:41 23 June 2019 #

Gargaj: This is probably down to my ignorance on these when I added them. If you have knowledge that they were online, then I trust that and have now marked them as such :)

mayday: Since it seems they are indeed not particularly related to the scene, I have complied on this one, but it also seems you added several of them yourself back in the day. So, yeah.

Gargaj - 11:58 23 June 2019 #

I don't have "knowledge" but their archived website at http://web.archive.org/web/20110816112842/http://2chparty.net/index.php?2chparty2009%2Feng says '"2chparty2009" is a online demo party' :)
