I have an issue to login again to my account on the site (user: Ovokx). It says that user doesn't exist.

Also I can't login into the forum (http://www.thesportsdb.com/forum/index.php) and my posts there have being removed.

Is there any problem? Sad

Yep sorry try again, should be fixed now Wink

Todays new feature...

Events!

Let me know if there are any requests for data from this page. I can get things like yellow/red cards and location which I haven't added yet.

@zag really nice work. Yellow/redcards + subs is something fundamental. Appart from that I'm not seeing anything that should be part of a dialog like that. Probably ball possession and number of shots/faults but that's probably too much and hard to get sources to scrape.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's another working team dialog (getting pro at it lol) with some interesting ideas: next matches metro-like (similar to Fifa 15 - see bottom thumb) along with the current performance and current position. Team's plot was just to fill out the blank space.

This dialog however showed one big limitation of the website. Every fanart there is considered just another fanart with no direction of what content it should contain. This leads the user to upload just some random crappy fire-like fanart he founds on google.

General rules of thumb should be provided for each fanart, for instance: General Logo fanart, General Club fanart 2, Historical Fanart, Team/Player Fanart.

This will easy the process of developing something using the API since the developer can know from the json array of returned fanarts that the 4th one is most likely an artistic photo/team fanart. This team fanart goes well with the current league information/with news/ etc.

Here's the dialog (the team obviously makes it look really sweet Big Grin ):

Inspired on this one:

Hi guys, things look like they are coming along nicely. Remember, if you want to get some of the best art possible for the database, then head over to fanart.tv and express your support! Every single image must go through a mod/admin that will make sure it is high quality. I have been amassing logos and badges for the site(close to 150 now between badges and logos), but will only upload them onto fanart.tv, so go express your support there.

Examples of what I am talking about:

Mouse over to see my image vs what is on SportsDB right now.

Problems(From a non-mod/admin's perspective):

Image # 1: Image has white pixels surrounding it that appear to be the work of the magic wand tool in Photoshop.

Image # 2: The image itself is very clear, but the top needs to be fixed, download image and apply different colored background layers to see it.

Image # 3: Lacks transparency and if someone decides to use a magic wand tool on it, there will be leftover white pixels and when the logo is on a dark background it will be noticeable.

Nice job Hazmat, I'm jealous about your art/editing skills! Also got motivated to post something to show my support on fanart.tv as per your request. Hope more people there join the project/idea.

cheers

Also for anyone wanting to learn graphic skills, you can use the free open source software gimp for image manipulation.

http://www.gimp.org/

And some tutorials here:

https://fanart.tv/tutorials/create-a-cle...with-gimp/


We are actually quite lucky that there are a lot of google image PNG's for logos ect already, but its surprisingly easy to create your own.

TheSportsDB operates a policy of 'artwork improvement', that being that anyone can overwrite someone elses artwork if they make something better. This policy has worked well over at TADB so hopefully it will work well here too, as the artwork improves. We keep a history of images just in case there are disputes about whos is "best" Smile

So I took my own advice and followed the GIMP tutorial and came up with this for Arsenal in 45mins!

Really good fun following the tutorial and now I know how to make transparent logos from scratch Smile

I advise anyone who wants to learn to follow the guide above!

One small thing when following the tutorial is that Script-fu doesnt seem to exist any more. I had to download the "outer glow" script from here and it showed up again when you refresh scripts.

Any chance of you posting the files you've done for this? and which version of nox is it for?
Reply
That isn't finished at all nor it is a standalone project.
It's just a aeon nox 5 dialog I created in 2 hours for the fun. It works by feeding a list containing static data to it:

Code:
table = [ ('Chelsea',"same",'14','4',"2","44","19","25","46"),
                ("Man City","same","14","4","2","44","19","25","46"),
                ("Southampton","same","11","3","6","34","15","19","36"),
                ("Spurs","up","10","4","6","29","27","2","34"),
                ("Arsenal","down","9","6","5","34","25","9","33"),
                ("West Ham","down","9","5","6","31","24","7","32"),
                ("Liverpool","same","8","5","7","28","27","1","29")
               ]
It will probably be a reality someday but more important things come first -> Filling the database.

Only with a database full of high quality artwork + reliable data/api to scrape from this (or other independent works) may be a reality.
So, hurry up and help contributing to the site

PS: Of course I'll share this once is ready and if it is ready.

Nice one.
What is the format to add alternative names? I mean, how are these names separated (; , / )

Example for United:

Manchester United, Red Devils, Man.United, MUFC, Manchester Utd

Single alternative name for now, i like to keep things simple
