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

Is this a hosting issue or a neowin issue? I mean im guessing the script cant access the authentication server or something. Im also getting the Neowin Authentication did not complete. Please try again...

The operation has timed-out.

well unfortunately I think this is a hosting issue. Not a Neowin issue. I can run it perfectly from my local machine....

I have another ticket in for this...It should be resolved in the morning...Eastern time.

Take a look at the email text-box on "Create a New Request" in Firefox. It stretches the browser window horizontally.

I'll modify that, unfortunately...firefox doesn't like the style="width:100%" on textboxes....

nice copy-cat system there Sniper

I have a suggestion for the rating system.

I think that if the requester specifies a size, they should only be able to rate those images that are of that size. Im guessing it would be pretty comlicated to read the size of an image then compare it withe the requested size. This wouldnt prevent people from posting larger or smaller sized images. I think it would reward the people that follow the directions.

Though you have an excellent point, I think this is going to be up to the requestor to decide. He/she is originally looking for what they asked for. But sometimes the artist has a better idea, and it might come out a little different (size, add/removed color here and there, etc.) Plus, reading the sizes of the image could probably be done at some point if the image was on the server. Since they are URLs...it's probably doable, but not practical.

Well, I am going to have to say no to this. The rating system is not meant to be buddy buddy. You are honestly suppose to rate work when you rate it, not change your mind and go back and re-rate it. It is suppose to be like Ebay feedback. So you should rate honestly the first time.

^^ Understandable.. just a thought... the person that did my request, posted the new stuff with the old stuff so there was no way to rate the new stuff... no biggie, i just thought it fair to the artist to be able to have the rating changed. either that or you could put a note in there somewhere telling the artists to make a seperate post. Anyway, just my $0.02...
