In April 2011, we launched the first Sourcecast website. This website had a very simple design that lacked the manoeuvrability and customisation that was required for a site like ours. Which is why, in August 2011, we began working on the official website for Sourcecast 2.0.
This site was totally custom-designed and has evolved dramatically from a backend standpoint, especially during the summer. Things like improved SEO, listener maps, mailing lists, modified designs and code snippet changes, adapted to make it easier for your browser.
We have, however, come to the conclusion that even this Sourcecast website is not fit for purpose. There were just too many difficulties in using the outdated, unsupported iWeb software. It also led to problems with creating a mobile website, as the software was just not designed for such a purpose.
So today, we are proud to unveil the new official website of Sourcecast 2.0.
Hi, everyone. You may remember earlier this year, when the 1st Animation Source Choice Awards was held. Well, it’s time to start getting ready for the 2nd ASCA’s, and this year I’m looking for YOUR help!
The way the Animation Source Choice Awards works is like this. Each year, several animated movies are released in theaters around the world. I count them up, and decide which films are eligible for which categories in the awards; the categories are set up like the Academy Awards, so there are, for exmaple, Best Picture and Best Animation. (22 in total.)
For the first half of January, YOU, the members of Animation Source, will narrow the list down to the actual nominees, and during the last half of January, YOU will get to decide who the winners are in each category.
But I cannot run this alone. I did last year and, believe me, it was a LOT of work. So I’m asking for as much help as I can get. Currently, I am looking for people to help out with two positions: counting votes and making graphics. To help count votes, all you need to do is receive PMs from members as they tell you what nominees they are voting for. You tally up the votes and report to me after the end of each voting period. You will even be able to still vote on your own, but remember, NO cheating on counting up other people’s votes.
