Title: Cumred_Snektron and DarkestEx now Elite Coders
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 11, 2015, 12:51:00 am
In light of their increasing contributions to the forums and their recent releases, we are pleased to award Elite Coder spots to two CodeWalrus members: @Cumred_Snektron and @DarkestEx!

Although Cumred has only joined the TI community in late 2014, he has released the following programs (some of which are still in the works):
-FBO Particles System (http://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=212.0) for Windows
-DovahCalc for both the TI-83 Plus (http://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=392.0) and TI-84 Plus CSE (http://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=403.0) (the first custom font for color calculators?)
-Draw (Axe) (http://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=258.0), an advanced drawing tool for the TI-83 Plus

Which now brings us to his newest release: Walrifier (http://codewalr.us/index.php?board=31.0)! Walrifier is an Android post notification application for CodeWalrus forums. Once installed, you will be notified of new messages posted on our forums and you can use the application directly to quickly browse new posts.

In DarkestEx's case, he joined the TI community over a year ago is working on the following:
-TwoStep (Puzzle game) for the TI-83 Plus (http://codewalr.us/index.php?board=33.0)
-Two home-made (http://muessigb.net/projects.html#Frankencalc) calculator (http://muessigb.net/projects.html#Javacalc) hardware projects
-Gamebuino Music Player (http://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11104)

And he got his own CodeWalrus Post Notifier too! In his case, the post notification software is for Windows, Mac and Linux (http://codewalr.us/index.php?board=31.0) and will offer the same functionalities as its Android counterpart.

We look forward for their next projects!

Not necessary. They just happened to have someone make them and it wasn't too hard to make.

There is actually another pending spot right now, so there will be at least one more addition soon, but yeah regarding the others, they were among the people being considered for future spots since the last few weeks I would say.


What does "cri" and "le cri" means, though? O.O

Cry, I would assume?

And what others? The ones being considered for EC?

Yeah i mean other people considered for EC. There were other people considered at first but sometimes it depends of their commitment to the forums. While we try as much as possible to add skilled programmers, if the programmer doesn't care about the forums and has no intention to participate to CW growth on a regular basis, then it might not necessarily be the person we are looking for. We also look for good behavior overall: If the person stirs up drama all the time then he has more chances of ending in the restricted forum group than elite coders.

Yeah, I personally agree with those select rules/ideals. Its probably not a good idea to give a dramatic person their own sub forum O.O

Erm if you mean dramatic as in not happy/sad/depressed, then it doesn't really matter unless the person seems volatile. But if you mean someone that tries to start forum or inter-forum fights or post very low quality content all the time then yes I agree. However, the main reason why I would avoid giving an elite coder position to a troublesome user is that it might reflect badly on CodeWalrus as a whole. People might jump to the conclusion that we approve of such behavior.

By dramatic I meant troublesome people who start flame wars. Oh yeah, thats another reason not to support those people, it could deter new members.

EDIT: Darkest was last active one minute after the original post was made O.O
