Pouet clone?

category: general [glöplog]

Pouet in bizarro world? Coming with authentic 90ies web design (fixed width. Font sizes and colors are a strain on the eyes when viewed on >1024x768. And it also looks like one of these random file download sites than are spamming all over the net.)


I see it borrowed a lot of ideas from pouet, more than most other demo sites do. I bet they also use pouet as a resource for their demo information. How about a script to rip the pouet database right away?

But otherwise it looks like a nice effort. Most notable is probably the missing BBS...

You're a few months late.
You could have scrolled down not just look at the first 1024 pixels.

Yeah well, that does not protect them from more attention.

What do you mean? Is that good or bad? :|

I guess that depends on how people perceive it...

I'm sooo tired of such comments that I decided to register here, so figure!

Yes, I'm the one to blame, I'm the one who did all that "site out the 90's"...but if you open your eyes, you'll discover it's not just a clone...pouet is a link posting site with nice features, point. Pouet as source? Well, kinda...I used some links I found on pouet, 100% true...but only links, not resources since pouet do not host a single flie, keep that in mind.

I did not rewrite an onliner because it would look like pouet, definity.

Hate it, love it or ignore it...I don't care I know there are people out there enjoying the site..that's the most important.

But now, have a look at you...instead of blaming people, reconsider yourself and think about what you have done for the scene?

Pouet will never change, that's maybe why I never liked it that much...

Well I have to disagree with pouet no hosting files since most of the files are in scene.org ;)
Don't worry I still like Intro-Inferno :)

Just my $0.02, Pouet will never change.. For me I come here less and less nowadays.. Largely because of the trolling, nowadays I spend more time at my own site, Bitfellas (though I usually lurk) and II.. All three of those sites are much more geared towards giving something positive to the scene.

It's up to everyone where they go.. If you don't like a site, don't go there.. If you want to give free publicity to a place by dissing it here then that can only be for the good of places like II, perhaps some more folks who are tired of the nastieness at Pouet will find other places more to their tastes.

Props to Druid for II, and another thing, it's nice to go to a place where there are no dead links because all the files are locally hosted.

but pouët still remains the unavoidable (in)famous pouët :p

familiar loop?
10 release crappy prods to public instead of probing for friends feedback with infofile saying "PREVIEW ONLY SPREAD AND DIE"
20 complain when they realize the public aint their circle of friends
30 go to 10

shockwave the fair who never tells oldschoolers what to code nowdays. grow up.

druid: nice site. i'll give yah 6 months until the troll flamewars start. lets hope im wrong and they'll never come. :)

nah its way more interresting to see certain ppl who come here, behave on sites like bitfellas or intro-inferno.
Real funny shit sometimes.

most ppl here on pouet act like idiots becoz they can, and are allowed to do so.

You forgot to say that pouet admins wasn't able to code the 'edit post' functionality in 6 years, not even a new design, tableless, or even move a finger to make the community a little bit more friendly.

Nice to have an alternative to pouet.net, I may change my bookmarks, thanks for the link Stelthz.
