      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content. Prohibited Content includes any Content that breaks any local, state, county, national or international law. Prohibited Content also includes: No direct or indirect advertising or websites, forums, products, services No hijacking of posts (do not post your question in someone elses) Content that infringes upon any rights [ex. MP3s and ROMs] (including, but not limited to, copyrights and trademarks) Abusive, threatening, defamatory, racist, or obscene Viruses or any other harmful computer software False Information or libel Spam, chain letters, or Pyramid schemes Gambling or Illicit drugs Terrorism Hacking or cheating for internet/online games Warez, Roms, CD-Keys, Cracks, Passwords, or Serial Numbers Pornography, nudity, or sexual material of any kind Excessive profanity Invasive of privacy or impersonation of any person/entity Hacking materials or information Posting Tips   There are more BBcodes than there are buttons for on the reply menu. To get the full list, click "BB Code Help" underneath the clickable smilie face menu. Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

I'm not sure what your thread is about.

 

HTML 5 was designed to perform a lot of functions that have been a necessity on the internet but could only be done with plug-ins. Flash is, slowly, being dephased in favor of HTML 5.

 

Flash is useful for other purposes, but for web applications HTML 5 is the best tool.

Yeah, but is that any reason to take the course out?How can I request it back? Mind you I'm not going to learn anytime so unless otherwise, but to have the knowledge available is nice.

The flash tutorials never had much in them to begin with, they were bad. It's best to find another website for Flash tutorials.

HEre's a link to the tutorial: https://web.archive.org/web/20100304150857/http://www.w3schools.com/flash/default.asp

 

I never found anything useful in it. I'm a volunteer moderator, yes, but I know that W3Schools never had much useful information about Flash.

Flash is still usable but only at few places. HTML5 is taking its place.

Flash would only survive if Adobe makes it possible to export a Flash project as HTML5 without losing any functionality. It's a fine authoring tool, which doesn't mean anything if nothing supports it.

I heard of that it is great as simplifying programming... Is it even more simpler than JavaScript in that aspect(JS programmer for life!).

And is that possible for adobe to do?

ActionScript 3 is quite different from Javascript, I would call it more complex. Both are based on Ecmascript though.

And is that possible for adobe to do?

I don't have much faith in Adobe to do anything correctly.

...What's wrong with them! They are people who would do such complication for free if they just throw it on github... it's cause they want money. Did you see that crap they made for developer interface. I'm all open source use. All this show is that there is old head running the show, and if they can't make all the money, then they rather not make no money. Edited by L8V2L

Yes, we all --even the blind-- can see that this is more on the thread of adobe sell flash. That person who brought it, put it on GitHub.How would that playout?And there is also xqib:Xqib( XQuery in the browser), furthering it as a programming language:http://www.xqib.org/http://archive.xmlprague.cz/2011/presentations/xqib.pdfhttps://websci.informatik.uni-freiburg.de/teaching/ws201112/xmldb/sheets/xqib-documentation.pdfhttp://cs.brown.edu/~kraskat/pub/www09-xqib.pdf Edited by L8V2L

Well, Adobe bought Macromedia in 2005 for only $3.4 billion, so if you get started now with a Kickstarter then you might be able to raise the billion or two dollars or so to convince Adobe to sell Flash.

.... But it's dying. And I don't mean to give it away, I speak on making it accessible via browsers.

I don't know what to tell you. Start a petition if you want to, but Adobe paid a lot of money for it and I can't see them doing anything that is going to result in them not making any more money from it. They would sooner bleed it until it's completely dead and replaced. Flash had its time, and that time is over.
