The future of piq

As you may have noticed, the creators of piq are no longer able to give the site the attention it deserves. However, we think piq and the community are great, and we want our users to carry on being able to enjoy the site. Better still we would love to see it continue to grow and develop.
For these reasons we have a question for you: do you (or anyone you know) have ideas and suggestions how to take piq forward?

von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:40
I could try...I think I'd be good at it.
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:40
Of course. It's been like, what, a year/couple of months since Daniel left? This is what we've been wanting since he abandoned this freakin site!

von dafunkyemo, 25 May 2015 21:41
So...just keep me in mind or something?
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:42
Of course!
von dafunkyemo, 25 May 2015 21:42
I'll probably never get any job but..Yeah.
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:42
Yes! Take it forward! Just what funky said.
von EPICBASS158, 25 May 2015 21:42
So..just...Yeah.
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:44
Wait, I meant to put an astris on that "Of course!"

Shitzer. .3.
von dafunkyemo, 25 May 2015 21:44
I suppose they'll be another note about who they're leaving in charge.
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:44
I think they'll give the job to a mod or something.
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:46
so the sites finally being given to the people... good call Daniel, good call. Well i wish the site best of luck in it endeavors to stay alive.
von DEAD-PIXEL, 25 May 2015 21:47
Take it forward, this website has to stay up. Nothinv makes me happier then going online to see all of you and it would kind of suck it see that go.
von TotallyTotaled, 25 May 2015 21:48
...But how, exactly? (Le confuse)
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:49
Dammit. You took the words that I wanted to put and just posted em.

Damn you TT!!
von dafunkyemo, 25 May 2015 21:49
How are we going to take it forward? And who?
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:50
wow and i was thinking about leaveing
von caleb7447, 25 May 2015 21:51
..So..? What happens now?
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:52
I guesz we wait
von TotallyTotaled, 25 May 2015 21:55
guess*
von TotallyTotaled, 25 May 2015 21:55
:/ how long, dya think?
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 21:56
I have no Idea, I don't even know what he plans to do to bring piq forward
von TotallyTotaled, 25 May 2015 21:58
...
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 22:01
perhaps he wants a new administrator or something
von TotallyTotaled, 25 May 2015 22:02
Ye.
von Sammichnatural, 25 May 2015 22:03
just gunna comment to get updated o3o
dont mind me lmao
von creeperslayer098, 25 May 2015 22:04
you don't get updated for the news things, you need to refresh.
von TotallyTotaled, 25 May 2015 22:06
I could do some crappy html coding, and i could make this website a little better. IDK
von PromotedLoser, 25 May 2015 22:26
Do you mind me asking what kind of script this site uses? If its something I can understand me and my boyfriend could definitely take over and try to fix a lot of the problems this site is having.

Iv been on this site for a few years now and I would hate to see it go honestly. And being a mod and helping people with their problems still gives me butterflies <3
von FurryRaver4life, 25 May 2015 22:29
I hope this site stays running for a good long time, and whomever it chooses to lead piq, I hope he/she is a good responsible mature person who !will! take care of this site.
von roseyyeti2, 25 May 2015 22:33

von I was dead and I lied about it, 25 May 2015 22:34

von TotallyTotaled, 25 May 2015 22:42
I have a jave script coding book in my room, I guess I could pull that out and learn some of the basic things.
von TotallyTotaled, 25 May 2015 22:43
Finally! Progress.
von Grogramn, 25 May 2015 22:47
Theres only progress if he takes up one of our offers

von PikachuJT630, 25 May 2015 23:41

von Tiok1, 25 May 2015 23:43
my offer still stands v.v
von FurryRaver4life, 25 May 2015 23:54
So many people on piq come onto the site everyday, filled with inspiration to draw. Of course, at times the site is down, but I'm sure the ones that understand the status of this site will do what is in their power to help. I've never done scripting, but if there was anything I could do, such as being a moderator, I would do absolutely everything in my power to make piq a better place. So I say, let's move forward :)
von UN1Q3, 26 May 2015 00:53
Maybe give "admin" powers to RESPONSIBLE/FREQUENT users

*cough* add more mods *cough*
von Gamergrl, 26 May 2015 01:04
I'm going to write a very long post so prepare for scrolling lol.
I love piq, simple as that. I've had 3 accounts here now over a year. Now. Maybe 1 year is a very short time compared to long-timers, but true love for this site is understanding how things start and how and when they will end.
And here's what I think.
I think, if you can't keep the site alive yourself, pass it on. It doesn't have to be to us, though that'd be nice, since there ARE adults here.
I don't want this site to go. I'm so glad you showed up, and said something, whoever this may be.
If you do pass piq on to another owner or administrator, make it clear to put "originally created by codeus" so people know the site is still your birth. This site glitches and goes down because it has a tiny community with not enough funds or a similar reason. But loo how many people who are offering to help. And Blog, Pika, and Furry can't be the only ones running around.
I could promote this site with some people I know that like / draw pixel art from tumblr to come here.
I could code a little glitch fixing myself. Like TT, I do have a coding book that I've hardly read (hmm, maybe the first page or so).
I think it's important to see everyone here cares. Everyone who is giving ideas on this comment section really DOES care, which is why we need new people to change this site.
And if you still want to keep this site, so be it. Either never fix this...or come back. I hear this site used to really thrive. Now it comes and goes with good artists popping by, and some are still around, but many of those tend to be inactive.
It saddens me because I have no idea what it's like to run a website or to have a community. But I know what it's like to have something precious that people like and then leave it.
I would say, Pass it on. Make piq memorable. This site is taking its final breaths, and I do appreciate you checking up on us. That's why we need to fix it now, before and if it gets any worse.
I do agree that the community of piq is a great one. I don't want to see it shrivel up because nobody was able to support this site.
von GothieCake, 26 May 2015 01:55
omg maddie
von Neon32, 26 May 2015 01:57
GothieCake, I read that entire comment and I agree with everything that was said.
von TotallyTotaled, 26 May 2015 02:03
^^
Yup
von Popcornforme8000, 26 May 2015 02:31
Furry would make a good owner. I'd like that.
von Sammichnatural, 26 May 2015 04:43
I think we should put together a group of good leadership people and programmers to run Piq?

Recently one of my favourite Minecraft servers shut down due to not enough profit, and someone made a forum for everyone to keep in touch, and it's pretty successful. We even managed to code in a chatbox thingy.

Anyway, this shows that it is very possible for a group of us to run this site, even if it means Piq not being a custom domain anymore.

We can do this guys
von Typhlosion51, 26 May 2015 05:46
DO CONTESTS AGAIN PLS
von PranckBros, 26 May 2015 11:52
the contests arent our main priority, this is about picking this website up off the ground. All the feedback this news entry is getting is giving me a good feeling.
von TotallyTotaled, 26 May 2015 13:58
you can try kickstarting it
von Nicktendo, 26 May 2015 15:37
that's not a bad idea,maybe some of the prises could be like a commission or something like that
von TotallyTotaled, 26 May 2015 15:44
kickstarters ca't be existing products if I remember correctly.
von Blobofgoo, 26 May 2015 17:56
I'm fairly sure that the site uses CSS for the text formatting but im not sure about everything else.
von Joshua To Furry, 26 May 2015 19:08
I think I can do that
von FurryRaver4life, 26 May 2015 21:36
Also, instead of kick starter we could do a patreon
von FurryRaver4life, 26 May 2015 21:36
We need some kind of system that filters bullying. When I joined piq, I expected to be welcomed and treated nicely. What I found instead was people hating on me and watching my every move. I recovered from this, many days later, and my art started to improve. Now what I see is this same kind of hatred everywhere.

Neon.
pixelartist.
Gamergrl.
Phantom BB.
Toby (no longer here, but still)
fireemblemrobin.
Me.

We've all been victim of this kind of hatred from the few people on the site who are just there to drag us down. Although piq is an awesome site, there are just a handful of select people that start dragging it down.

Sigh.

I'm taking up valuable comment space.

Some sort of ban system? or kick? Maybe?
von TMman1, 26 May 2015 21:51
It would be REALLY helpful if you could divide the mail into different sections (one for people that have drawn piqs, another section for people that have commented, subscribed, ex...)
That would be So helpful, I think!

And I I hope you find someone to help with piq and all.
von Juicebox, 26 May 2015 22:32
//Suggestions to help the site continue, not features.//
von Lieutenant Disaster, 26 May 2015 23:00
I've been on piq for a while, nothing compared to furry or others like them but long enough to see everything blossom and bloom into beauty but also fall to decay. ono
For that to happen to a site that is so rad and stellar is heartbreaking and I wish to do something about it!
It needs a reboot of sorts, with a ton of coding and glitch fixing but also new systems for the notification, art, followers, achievements, ect. And the community is the right place to ask for help, I bet their very intellectual people here to offer their services! Now there would have to be a level of hierarchy since it would be chaos just having the community completely run it and things would also be changing like an indicisive kid at McDonalds. The levels could range:
2 Administrators, 3/4 Global Moderators, 4/5 Moderators, 2/3 Coders maybe more, # Assistants to anyone above, # General Helpers this would be for the users who need questions asked about the site/program, and the users themselves.
Hopefully my two cents might of pointed out some things and I wish to see this place rise from it's withered stems and bloom once again!!! qwq

What would I do on my sparetime if piq dint exist. :(
von MegaPixel, 27 May 2015 12:54
i dunno
von Xyzzy, 27 May 2015 13:31
That's a good idea gram, in fact I am willing to offer my assistance. I may not be a good pixel artist, but I can code and I have been on here long enough to know all about what to do if something goes wrong or what each thing does to help people get ahead. And I'm sure I'm not the only person that can help you with your idea, I even know some people that might be willing to help and I can ask them and maybe once we get enough people then we can start upgrading piq.
von carlucci987, 27 May 2015 16:56
we should add a chat room or like private messages thing
