Newsbox being rewritten

Postby STrRedWolf on Sat May 25, 2002 12:16 pm

Folks, we are rewriting the Newsbox for integration into KeenSpace. Thus, we will *NOT* be accepting any more submission requests, nor will we be updating it.

We are also going to redo the whole mess again, and right this time around.

If you have any questions, let us know.

What's a newsbox?
The best thing to happen to some people,is Resident Farmer. The best thing to happen to me is cel-shaded graphics and translated Japanese Anime. Whoo-hoo!

I appologize for not keeping myself very well updated on this, but last I heard the new newsbox was going to be manditory for all Keenspace comics. Is that still the idea?

Nothing other than the banner ad and footer credit (about being hosted on keenspace) are mandatory. The newsbox is just being made a ***tag*** from what I know
If it doesn't work, make it.

So... how does it work?

Postby JexKerome on Wed Apr 21, 2004 5:21 pm

Yah, how does anyone go around setting this newsbox up? where are the instructions?
Faith is what credulity becomes when it finally achieves escape velocity from the constraints of terrestrial discourse- reasonableness, internal coherence, civility, and candor. Thus, the men who commited the atrocities of September 11 were neither cowards nor lunatics of any sort, but Men of Faith- perfect faith- and this, it must finally be acknowleged, is a terrible thing to be.

No point. Everywhere I've seen had a different phrasing anyway. If you can't work out how to type "This comic is hosted by Keenspace" how are you going to figure out how to type "***footertag***"?

Okay, in case you don't know... we DO have a newsbox <a href="http://guide.keenspace.com/newshack.php?out=guide"> HERE </a>, login to <a href="http://siteadmin.keenspace.com">siteadmin</a> and configure it, or maybe I just need to make configuring it easier to use.

Ghastly wanted to know if I could make stats from it... so 2 hours later, we now have <a href="http://guide.keenspace.com/guide_newsbox.php">this</a>, albiet very ugly...

It's sole purpose is to track in/out on the newsbox... kinda like "top lists" , except this more tracks who is or is NOT putting the box on their site.

It's only been running for about 2 hours and is only showing "clicks" in this version. I might extend it a little to show counts instead of the same link over and over again. Still, I don't expect too much use of this one.

I might backport it to guide itself however, which means it could be used as a <strike>popularity contest </strike>page rank that could then be used on the front page.

Oh... and just a reminder, if you don't update your comic for 7 days, your newsbox will not show up. Some incentive to not go on hiatus.

In the meantime, I've set up an interim Newsbox ring. It's up and running, I just need people to send me their newsboxes: 150 x 300 pixels (old format). The only rules are that you put it on the main page and that you not violate the law.
