NeoRequest Public Preview

Question

+chorpeac    30

The Beta has been returning some good comments and suggestion and bugs, and many changes have been made that were recommended.

Jmann and I are pleased to annouce the public preview of the Neowin Graphic Request system. For those of you who are not familiar, the previous graphic request threads worked, but there are many things that the new system does for the process.

Requests will no longer get lost in all the jibber jabber that filled the current threads.

To start, login with your Neowin credentials.

NeoRequest allows someone who is looking for a graphic the chance to submit a request. The request must include certain information to be submitted. Once it is submitted an artist can accept to work on it. The requestor will know who is working on the request. The requestor, artist, or a normal person logging in can post comments/Questions on the request. Once an artist is finished, he/she will submit a URL to a graphic or a zip file containing the graphics.

The artist has the option to track their work and all work completed in the past in the artist workdesk. This is also where the artist submits their finish products for a request. An artist can also edit previously submitted URLs for any reason.

A basic search function is available for a quick search of historical requests.

We hope you enjoy the system, see the benefit of it, and continue to make your graphic requests through it.

Once again, this is a public preview, not a final product. It is almost a final product. The risk of data loss is possible. Also, changes can and are still being made, so please be patient. Access the system to become familiar with it, test it out, or make a live request!

Have fun, if you find errors, have a suggestion, or have a question about it, PM Jmann or chorpeac!

The address to access the system is NeoRequest

Chorpeac-

Do you actually want a sig or is it just a test?

I created a simple little graphic just to see how the system works.

I think it would be cool if a requester could request that 2 different people work on the design. To get different ideas or whatever. You may be able to already, if so disregard that. I think the rating system is cool too.

Great Job!!!

OK now I am leaving for the night. Yeah more than one person can work on the graphic. You can only assign it to yourself once, but you can submit more than one graphic per request. A request can have many artists working on it. It's up to the requestor to post what they want, and the artist to choose what to work on. :)

lol...yeah. I think this is the same reason why DoNuts can't log in too, he has a @ at the end of his name. I am trying to contact redmak about this, since he wrote the login script. For those users who have special characters in their login name, please be patient while we correct this issue. This was not encountered in the beta, but it will be fixed. Thanks!

dang....ok, well I'll have to wait and see if Redmak can check the Neowin side then. I should be sending the correct text with special characters to him now. Sorry Donuts. I'll keep onto this.
