being a upgrade to Romi's Sprite Tool
, it was inevitable for us to prepare a massive remoderation. Many people have problems searching for a a good sprite because the section is filled with submissions without tags, or they have descriptions that don't make sense and lack either images or videos in their descriptions.
This is a really big project. We need to give these submissions a proper description, put tags and put a screenshot (.png/.gif) or a video. Almost all of the sprites need this, but at the same time many sprites have poor quality that don't meet the current standards (there are some that are just simple edits from other sprites).
PIXI is going to be the new standard, so we need to be sure that all sprites are ready to be inserted with it. There are some sprites that use TRASM to be assembled and these sprites should be updated to use asar, so PIXI can come without trashkas. Simple converting sprites with the tool is not reliable, as many sprites do not convert properly or lack features when converted.
Again, this is a really big project, so that's why I'm also using this thread to invite people to help us, the ASM moderators, to remoderate the section. People who help us will receive a helper badge (drawn by Eevee) and if you're really dedicated with helping us, we might even give out a prize!
Any person interested should send me a PM
or a DM via Discord, I'm 12344 🐇. Communication during this process will be held on our very own Discord server in its' own specific channel, and we require all those helping in this project to be active in the Discord during this time.
And finally, this will be the current priority of the ASM moderation team, so don't worry if the other sections looks abandoned, they will be moderated at some point!
tl;dr The current plans for this project are this:
- Add tags to submissions without them
- Add images/videos to submissions without them
- Edit the submissions' descriptions if they aren't clear
- Convert TRASM sprites to use asar assembly.
- Remove old submissions if they are just simple edits or are of low quality.
- Hiring people to help ASM mods during this project.
- Moderation in other ASM sections will be heavily
reduced during this time.
