Yey for doodling:



I forgot to mention in your blog that you should also generate img tags wrapped in anchor tags that links back to your site - or do you consider that too self-serving? I usually rip them out anyways, but mainly only when I take funny images off those MySpace image sites.

Drew, thanks for your suggestion about linking the images. It was something I tossed around a while ago when I did most of the work on the site. When I think about it now, I dont see any reason not to have it that way :)

Also, since announcing the site I added a gallery feature because I found that it is a lot of fun to look at all the things people create. However, I personally approve/reject each image that gets submitted because a few of the images were a bit vulgar :P Shame on you GameDev'rs!!

Thanks all for taking the time to check out the site.

-Brian

Hello again and thanks to all who have taken a look at DrawGo.com.

I made a few updates to the site today.

1. I added a "recenter" feature to the drawing page. Often I would be frustrated after drawing something nice because I happened to draw it off-center. Well, now you can just click the "recenter" button and viola, its centered. Soon I will add more "Move" type tools.

2. I re-enabled the E-Mail feature that allows you to E-Mail your picture to anyone you want. This feature was previously disabled due to some security concerns but I have implemented a confirmation E-Mail system that should address them.

Thats all for now!
