The Stick Nodes Community – Get Your Fresh, Hot Accounts Here

Edit July 12 – You can now manually add your own caption (what appears under your comments on the main website). After logging in, go to “Your Profile” > “Edit” and fill in the “Comment Caption” field.

So today I am unveiling something that has been in the works here for about a month now. The Stick Nodes Community, aka MyNodes™ (branded by DmLan).

Stick Nodes CommunityI believe it will lead to much better community interaction and lols. It offers you guys a lot more fun from the website, so to get started:

  1. Register here, choose your username/password.
  2. Activate you account through your email.
  3. Log in here.
  4. Have good times here.

So what can you do with an account? Well there are a few perks.

1. You’ll use the same account to comment here!

So you won’t need to fill in your name/email when you comment on posts or pages here on the main section of the website.

Oh, and you can change/crop your profile photo too (no more Gravatar, unless you don’t have an account here, then Gravatar is still used).

2. You get your own profile page and can add friends!

You’ll have your own page on the website. Mine is located here and Sean’s is here. As you can see it’s a simple URL of[username].

On your profile will be all of your social media links, your custom bio, and all of your activity. Think of it like Facebook and their wall, you can ask questions, post your animations, or even post DANK MEMES!

Adding friends also allows for easier interaction for those you want to keep updated with.

You’ll also be emailed when you have new interactions!

3. You can embed Youtube videos / images in community posts!

Just post a Youtube link or an image link on a newline when writing a new activity post, it will be embedded and easily visible by others.

4. You can create your own Groups!

So here is a list of the current Groups. As of this writing there are only two (#TeamRalph and #TeamSean, feel free to join the correct one >_>).

You can create your own Groups, write a description for it, upload a Group profile picture, and then manage the users. I foresee this as being useful when working on joints, starting a collab, RHG battles, clans, etc… Groups can be public/private, so if you want it to be members-eyes-only, it’s as easy as pressing a button.

Overall that’s the basic idea.

I’m going to be keeping an eye on things and improving/changing as I see fit to make this a nice addition to the website. I’m open to suggestions as well.

One basic rule – do not spam/flood with this new system. It’s very “easy” to start spamming and making many posts/flooding the activity. Your account will be disabled if I feel you’re abusing the system. The same goes for creating Groups – keep it reasonable.

Alright, off to work on Stick Nodes Desktop…Nah lol I’m kidding ain’t nobody got time for that.

New Version (2.0.3) – Sliders Begone

Well, there’s more to the update than that but I like how it sounds in the title. Anyway…

Version 2.0.3 (for Android and iOS)

  • (iOS only) Fixed bug when exporting MP4 for some devices.
  • Removed sliders, replaced with +/- buttons for now.
  • Added messages instructing how to use new menu system.
  • Put back red outline when creating a stickfigure.

And yes, this update has been uploaded for both iOS users and Android users simultaneously. Crazy right!?

Stick NodesSo yeah, the majority of the sliders are gone – for now. I’ve replaced them with the +/- buttons. I have an idea how to make the sliders better, and once I do I’ll give an option for users to choose between sliders or +/- buttons.

I’ve also attempted to make it clearer how the new responsive menu works. For the first 5 times the app is opened, tooltips are displayed instructing users as to where “Frame Tools” (and sounds) are.

And the accidentally-removed red outlines when creating stickfigures has made its return!

In the meantime, I’m working on something Neat™ for the website, how to have it live this week and if it works out I can see it being of great use for a lot of you guys. But more on that in another post.

Version 2.0.2 Live on the App Store (iOS)

Well that took a while. Here’s a link to the FREE version on the App Store, and here’s the PRO version.

The changelog is basically a combination of the past 2.0.0 – 2.0.2 updates that were previously released for Android, but here it is again.

The biggest change is how the user interface works (see this GIF here). These are the two most common questions regarding this UI change.

Q. Where are sounds?

A. Still where they have always been! Under “Frame Tools” – you have to tap a frame first to see the tools though.

Q. How do I change the background color?

A. Still also under “Frame Tools” – tap a frame to see the tools.

Version 2.0.2 (for iOS)

  • Huge interface overhaul! Cleaned up and much easier and intuitive to use. Most notably “normal”, “panning”, and “camera” modes now have their own buttons to the top-left.
  • Also, only relevant tools/buttons appear determined by what the user has just touched/selected (stickfigure, frame, textfield).
  • You can now OPEN ZIPs/PACKS with the app, “open with Stick Nodes” is now an option on your system, it will automatically import the contents of the ZIP.
  • The app is now available in 5 different languages! You can change the language by going into “App settings” under “App Tools” (EN, ES, FR, PT, TR).
  • A time delay can be added to individual frames to have them pause for a few seconds, good for pausing text on the screen.
  • The list of default stickfigures that ship with the app has been refreshed!
  • Filter import/open lists to make finding files easier!
  • Frame background colors can now be gradients!
  • The app can be flipped in landscape mode.
  • New sounds added for PRO users. Including COD Tactical Nuke, CS voices, Gun Reload, Minecraft Creeper sounds, Undertale sounds, and more.
  • So many small optimizations, bug fixes, and tweaks. So many… HAVE FUN!

Enjoy! Now to work on Stick Nodes PC!

PS – I’m not.

PPS – But I am working on something else…
