i originally intended this to be specifically geared towards animators. while still artists are welcomed, they will not be allowed to make their own profile pages, and they won't have a lot of articles to gather infromation from. animation is enough in itself to dedicate a wiki to, and i have a lot of ideas for the articles.

the flash community will only be a part of it. it's dedicated to animators in a  broad sense, whether or not they use the software. there will be pages dedicated to truly famous animators like Tex Avery and Chuck Jones, an extended history of animation and the way animation works.

Here is how I have laid out the site in terms of categories:

[–] WikiFlash

  • Animation tests

  • Elements of animation

>>
  • Flash FAQ

  • Flash animation

This should be enough to chew for a start of a website. each category or subcategory can hold an unlimited amount of articles. sound adequate?

also, wikimation is probably my choice for new name.

although wikimation is being used by two other sites, but they're not copyrighted. so neither is the name. we'll just become the most popular one, then.
