Hello PMC



Cypezz here with some text output.

We've launched new features tonight as well as changed Paril to red. He's now officially able to help develop PMC, well technically he's required to but he wants to too and that's great for all of us! It took months of work to get to this point and I'm excited to have some dev help with this "little" site ;) However, this does mean he'll spend less time responding to PM's. You can badger, err public message him on twitter though... cause member twitter feeds are back again now with post ability.

Sir, did you mention new PMC features?



Yep. Sec, where did I put those, oh!

Member Activity Feeds!



There is a new tab on our member profile pages, "Activity" and it will allow everyone to explore PMC through our eyes. Hopping around these feeds is pretty fun.

The feed pulls in and can be filtered to:
* Submission Posts & Updates including pulling in the update log if available.
* Diamonds
* Favorites
* Comments
* Server Votes
* Downloads

All activity is associated to the submissions, so it's likely their feed is going to influence ours. It's word of mouth promotion without the mouth wording!

Subscription & Subscriber Management!



We can now easily manage our subscriptions from our account page. Click here. It allows us to view our subscriptions, search them and unsub with a click. Y u unsub? Something I posted? No just testing the new subscription management. Click.

Also, we can view who's subscribed to us under, wait for it... the "Subscribers" tab. If for some reason we have a subscriber that we don't want, remove them & block with 2 clicks. Click, click. Sub--

Disable Comments!



We can now disable comments on new and existing submissions. Sometimes silence is nice. Not much else to say bout that... comments disabled.

Texture Packs get Schemagic Support!



As new resource packs are uploaded and current ones are updated, we'll be able to preview them on PMC in full 3D, just like PMC project schematics. Texture packs will load on Builder Spenskit's amazing texture pack preview map which won first place in our site contest.

You'll be able to fly around on PMC and view every block including animations. Cool. We'll write a script shortly to scan all existing texture packs and automagically give compatible packs schemagic support. At the moment, texture pack owners will have to reupload their pack to gain support.

More to come.

I watched him type that post, and out of all of the places to make mistakes (and he re-read that post like 50 times), the first word he types is the one he does wrong. Maaaaaan.

sweet
Does Schemagic only work for packs hosted on PMC? This sounds like an awesome feature, but PMC hosting is extremely unreliable. Nearly every single time I tried the uploader would fail.

I get if it wouldn't work with Mediafire, but I have my pack hosted on Google Drive (with Google's URL shortener not only to shorten, but also for stats), along with a trick I discovered that pretty much makes it a direct download. Seems like PMC could go to my download, get the file, store it, and use it that way.

EDIT: Also, this doesn't seem to work at all for me. I either just get a black screen, or immediately it says "Rats! WebGL hit a snag."

System info: Google Chrome v29.0.1547.65, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (x86_64)
The skin viewer works just fine for me, though.

The maximum upload size for packs is 10mb... if it's any larger, it won't upload. I think they should change that.
That's not my issue, my pack is around 1MB. I have slow internet, so I guess the connection with PMC is poor (especially around PMC's common server issues), if I watch the network activity (one of Chrome's inspect tools), I can identify the request to upload the file, which fails after a while. The site (or GUI anyways) doesn't realize this has happened, and the little spinny keeps spinning. It also doesn't help that there isn't a progress bar.....

So yeah, PMC is way too much trouble when it comes to hosting. Frankly, I don't think PMC should even be TRYING to host the content itself, only give it a place to be sorted, found, and accessed.

Disable comment? Which means that all these kids can now upload whatever they want with out any pics and people will download it to see what it is, when they realize its a giant wool p3n!s they cant tell people to not download it and its gonna get to the pop reel! (Not much of a realistic scenario but still)
