Staffing News and Screenshots
Posted by Andy on 21 June 1999, 05:15 GMT

We are happy to have Nick on our staff. We hope that you give him a warm welcome. In addition, if you would like more information on him or any of the other staff members, feel free to view our staff page.

Finally, we would like to thank all individuals who applied for the archiver position. At this time, we feel that we have enough staff members to handle our load. However, we are confident that we will at a future date be looking for more staff members. In that event, we hope you will re-apply.

No offense but how hard is adding screenshots when dim-ti and ti-files already have taken almost all of them?BTW i thought bluecalx was with ti-files?

Um.. we can't just add their screenshots to our archives, and we would be very displeased if they added our screenshots to their archives. And, the process of associating screenshots with files isn't quite as easy as you might think. But I don't think BlueCalx has ever been associated with TI-Files..

I haven't been involved with the Files save the occasional trip to #ti-files on EFNet. *shrug*

A screen shot is a screen shot nobody who it was taken by. It does not matter how the screen shot was obtained. I think the major TI sites should be allowed to share the resources they have. I don't think we should argue over which site hsa more screen shots or who took what. The only way a screen shot would matter was if it was a shot of a copyrighted game. I currently don't think their are many games that are copyrgithed so I don't think that is a big question.

Hmm according to copyright law, everything is copyrighted even if it doesn't register or display Copyright (C)1999 blah blah.

Actually, every original graphic on the internet is copyrighted. And, our animated screenshots will have a built-in comment that says "(C) 1999 ticalc.org". But as another comment says, you do not even have to have a copyright notice in order to claim copyright. Of course, one TI site is unlikely to sue another one, but it certainly isn't the greatest thing for site relations.

Kirk-
I think you missed my point. Why must the TI sites argue over screen shots. Can we not just share our screen shots. A screen shot is a screen shot is it that big of a deal.

Well, I think they SHOULD all share their screenshots. But each site should each do so many, so one site isn't doing all of them. It would save time for each site's staff, allowing them to work on other projects.

Just my $0.02 on the matter

Actually, I do know if ticalc.org's arranged zapo.calc.org is or even dim-ti. It's not tough even IF you take them. Which I do doubt happen.

BlueCalx: In the 82-basic games archive, the screen shots for Zelda are the ones from the asm demo. You should prolly fix that.
Also, the File Information section (Programs by this Author) of my two programs (LORD and TxtView) don't show all the programs I have made. Yes, I'm whining, but can someone fix it please? Thank you

they've done this to me to. i think it's because you either entered a different e-mail address than before or your name was not exactly the same. (i.e. no full last name, initials, etc.)

They won't. Unless they do. I really really don't think they will. Tooooo hard. They just want to make a screenshot not a movie. And there is toooo many files to do them all.

Eh? It's not hard at all. That is, if you have a utility that automates the process. Taking animated screenshots is even easier than taking stills because you don't even have to push a button saying when to take each screenshot.

So is that a yes or a no?...

Taking animated screenshots is not difficult at all. Making an entire movie may be a slow process if you don't have a lot of memory. You can run programs in VTI, capture the screen to an AVI, then convert that to an animated GIF. It may require some palette tweaking, but you can get pretty nice results.

Of course, you could also modify the emu to do it automatically...
