Are there any plans to convert the flash videos into another format? There's a lot of good stuff in the video section that I havent seen anywhere else, I dont want it to be lost forever.

Homestar Runner is currently in the process of doing that



(Homestar Runner is a cult flash cartoon that mostly pokes fun of or pays homage to lots of cult classic to obscure retro stuff. It's pretty much the 'Member Berries (if 'Member Berries were legit no so ironically mainstream hipsters) of the early 2000's before those were invented and before there was even a Nostalgia Market like there is now. It stars this dude who is an athlete with a speech impediment who makes weird statements and his Mexican wrestler friend Strongbad. Most of the episodes are free on YouTube)

The videos themselves aren't going anywhere. I'm not sure what will be necessary to make them playable when Flash is dumped, but we'll figure something out.

I was thinking we could use a player similar to the one Retrojunk has.

even though videos aren't affected, seeing flash itself go still sucks, how will digital animators make their webtoons now?

What really sucks about Flash going away is no more Hungry Pumkin (really bizarre flash game where you feed a rude pumpkin who doesn't pay for what he eats and b****slaps food if you give him the wrong item as opposed to what he demanded and replies with "No! I don't want that!" Hungry Pumkin was also an internet meme and YouTube source for a while)

This website is NOT a rebranded RetroJunk. It is in no way affiliated with RetroJunk. Inspired by... yes. But that's it. RetroJunk still exists and can be found here: www.retrojunk.com

And here's an example of what Retrojunk's video player looks like:





I think this would be a good format to use.

oh if only vertex cared about his site the same way that he used to. the removal of the user forums, as well as screwing up the layout of past articles was enough for me to leave too. oh, and orangejuice90s.

^ When you think about it, most of the User Forums didn't get as much support as they did before. Before the "update" I mean.
