An Angel of the Auroras. This picture is destined for a book on inspirational reading (where you flick through it to a random page). The angel is my Mum's glass 'paper-weight' (a block of glass with the center cut via a laser; the item is usually placed on an LED stand, where the coloured lights illumine the block from underneath). The purple starry background is of a real aurora (though manipulated here).

Chris, they shouldn't have done that, maybe something else was going on with them.
I would get my best wizard to wave his wand and send a couple of dragons over there !♪♥♥♫

Kyrin

Well at least you get reasonably prompt replies. I gave up emailing them because they seemed to ignore me!

Guys, this was my feedback to TPTB .................................

We understand you are still refining the new puzzle player options while phasing out Adobe Flash.
I'm wondering whether you will offer Jigidi players the opportunity to comment, in the form of a survey or feedback to you, on what they would like to see in the new puzzle player ?
I am using the player but find the colour palette choices are limited in only basic white or dark, whereas in Adobe there is a green/gray colour and more shades. The background colour is important as if its not complimentary it makes the puzzle a lot more difficult to see and also complete.

I'm also finding the speed of moving pieces a little clunkier reducing my completion time.

I would like to add that for many of us a lot of pleasure is derived from speed of puzzle completion. Now that there is no immediate pause button, our speeds are lowered. I know the puzzle stops after about 20 seconds but that is a long time when you’re trying to get on the leaderboard, the competitive edge has totally been lost. Please consider re-establishing a pause button that we can control. Thanks (✬◡✬) ............................


This is the response I got back from Maya, they've always been pretty good at answering promptly.

'Hi there

Thank you for your feedback.

The new version of the site is indeed a work in progress and we really appreciate users taking the time to send us through their feedback.

The thinking behind the new automatic pause is that a 10-20 pause, even a couple of times, won't make a dent in the overall time of working larger puzzles - particularly those over 200 pieces, and those working smaller puzzles competitively shouldn't need to pause at all. The manual pause function was being used to gain a time advantage in many cases, with people pausing to think about their next move, when this should of course be part of the natural puzzling time.

I hope this clarifies somewhat, I'll be sure to send your additional feedback through to the development team for you.'

Best regards,
Maya

Facebook has 6,500 times as many monthly users as Jigidi, and even Facebook can't afford to screen all postings thoroughly for hate, political lies & other propaganda.
I just tossed it out for a size comparison... it's not a perfect apples-to-apples match, of course.

I agree with you Christine. Yet since Jigidi keeps its inner workings private, and has every right to do so, we can only speculate on it all.

About the only places I've ever seen that let users know about fixes reported, fixes being worked on and fixes completed, are some software developers. Makers of PC virus checkers and of software synthesizers come to mind.

Kyrin

Oh yes, I've already thought of those things. What bugs me is that some things (e.g. the background colours and the pause 'button') have been wanted for many, many months, so why should it take so long to fix?
I don't quite grasp the reference of Facebook here, but I would definitely count myself as a dedicated Jigidier - I even promote them across my social medias!
It would be nice if HQ acknowledged us as valued members and were genuine about our feedback on improvements.

robf

It may simply be down to will the budget stretch, or are the techs busy with something already.
Some clues:

Apr 30, 2020 - Around 2.6 billion people use Facebook every month, making it the largest social media platform worldwide.
- from https://www.statista.com/statistics/264810/number-of-monthly-active-facebook-users-worldwide/

A vast community of committed and generous Jigidiers (41,000 active accounts and more than 400,000 monthly unique user visits)
- from https://www.jigidi.com/about.php

Kyrin

Hi Bubble, Dhi and Rob :)
Yes, I know exactly what you mean about those horrible background colours - and the ridiculous lack of a pause button!
I can still use the old Flash system, but I'm certainly not excited about losing it :-|
As Rob says, the techs can very easily change the colours - it's getting Management to listen - and do - what we ask, that's needed! One thing I've hear many times over, now, is people asking @Jigidi to change or fix this or that, and getting no response!
Given their incredibly wide audience, you'd think they'd listen and make the positive changes (especially re the frequently requested things).
Here's to holding out hope that they hear us :-]

Bubble

Thank you my friend. I'm signing off now as I've done 56 assorted puzzles (trying to get my average back up to 20, what an (enjoyable) slog). ♪♥♥♫

robf

Bubble,
The tech team could offer several colours. No problem. Even lowly Paint on Windows has 48 standard to choose from, plus 16 of your choice.
It's the management team though, deciding if they should. Getting that answered always comes first.

I'll switch over and see what you mean - putting it onto the To Do list for tomorrow noon (EDT) or earlier

Bubble

@robf
Yes Rob I'm using the new puzzle player because I have no choice.
My issues are really the colour choices and no manual pause button which is a bummer when you do a lot of puzzles and are on competitive time.

I pointed out to TPTB that a lot of people do need to manually pause for lots of reasons and if you just leave the puzzle it will eventually pause but after about 20 seconds which is a long time.
The background colour choices are uninspiring and not compatible with a lot of picture colours. If one could adjust an individual shade lighter or darker that would be terrific but I doubt the tech team could do that, so some other hues instead of dark brown/blues/grey would be welcome.

You can see it for yourself if you change to it, its easy to change back to Flash and I'd like your opinion. No pressure. ♪♥♥♫

robf

Bubble, are you and others with colour issues on the new HTML version? I'm still using Flash, and will miss it terribly when 2021 rolls around. I've had no issues with background colours on Jigidi's Flash.

Bubble

Thats strange dhi, I cannot go back to the Adobe Flash because my computer keeps denying me and I don't mind that as it will be unavailable eventually, and I have no other choices of colour. I only have a basic laptop. ♪♥♥♫

dhi

I just checked and I still have the same default colours as always, hmm...

Bubble

Her luminosity and translucence is lovely Christine, and beautifully balanced with the background. ♪♥♥♫

Is anybody else having problems with the new colour palette on the puzzle maker?

I for one miss the flash green hue and now find it hard to get the right background choice which makes it harder to see the designs.
After messing around with the lap top lid to find the best colour, by the time I've gone through a few puzzles my eyes are red and watering. I've asked the Team to reinstate the other colour choices (and reinstate the manual pause button) but don't think they will. They welcome feedback and so do I. ♪♥♥♫

Kyrin

Thank you Lovely XO

irisriver

Awesome! ☺♥☺

Kyrin

Ha ha ha ha yes, if we could only have clones of ourselves to get all of those menial tasks done! I put an order in for 12 of them... still waiting for delivery of 'me'.

Thank you for that very lovely compliment, too. It touches the heart :)

SPaceDinVADerOne

no Kyrin, nothing of the sort. your work is excellent :o) I was just giving you info for you to explore. I know they helped me learn how my PSP works, along with cool effects from playing with the filters after I had finished the tutorial.

I understand not being able to find the time ... boy, do I ever understand that lol

Kyrin

You are very welcome Cyndi, thanks XO

John, yes I am aware of the free on-line tutorials; I've seen a couple and I know there's loads more available, it's just making the time to get to them! I'm madly trying to complete final editing of my fantasy novel at present, which is demanding a lot of my time. Hence why there's been a delay in new pictures from me. Do you think this needs a filter? If so, what sort?

Thank you Dj, I really appreciate that, warm hugs XO

Nanapuzzler also thank you and warm hugs from Australia, I'm so glad you like her :)

Donnajames

Getting back to the photo...this is so beautiful...dj

SPaceDinVADerOne

there are numerous tutorials for Photoshop & Paint Shop Pro that use filters, most are free to use & are supplied in the download. I did tutorials for years, & learned a lot of new tricks ... if you have never done them, you just might have some fun giving them a test drive

Kyrin

You're welcome dhi :)
I'm about to do "Sleep" before I go to sleep myself xoxo

Kyrin

Yes, for e.g. I used the Surface Blur on the background behind the actual picture (the strips down lef and right sides). Otherwise on this particular picture (within the lilac frame), there's no filters, just other tool applications.
Why do you ask?

Isaly

Thank you Kyrin

SPaceDinVADerOne

do you use filters Kyrin?

dhi

Thanks Kyrin.

Kyrin

Have just forwarded them to you now @dhi

Kyrin

Yes Dhi, no problem - and I wondered why I hadn't seen them yet - I'm waiting to hurry up and play them :-D

dhi

Kyrin, could you resend the email with the puzzles you wanted me to post. I cannot find it in my excellent filing system!

dhi

Gorgeous photo art as always.

robf

:))
Been there!

Birgit73

Funny, Rob...being called a nickname reminds me of high school days where I had a nickname with my friends, Gigi, and then because of my Danish name, Birgit, though I spelled it as Brigitte back then since most people couldn't pronounce it anyway, but then I was called the derivative in my language courses of French and German, and of course, my real name at home. One day someone randomly said 'Hey you' in the hall, and I turned to answer, "Yes!"

robf

Just a side effect of lockdown.
We all get it now and then these days... glad to help out, Curious George :-)

Birgit73

I think, Rob, that it's called 'too much time on Jigidi', but that's ok...I did think of the other puzzler and I was way off base, so never mind...it's late so my brain is tired...or I'm losing it...NO, WAIT! I lost it a long time ago...ha ha ha

robf

I've had this one for over a year, and had another sky one before that.
Do I have a doppelganger of some kind? Cool.
Best of luck on your quest, Birgit / Curious.

Birgit73

@robf - Call me Curious George, if you will, but did you change your avatar or am I thinking of someone else here on Jigidi?

Birgit73

Yes, that's what I saw here in Alberta, whereas I'd seen the purple and pink in photos, but I agree that many of the auras are more likely variations of green. Eggplant...yes, the colours do look like that...great observation.

robf

Many auroras in photos are green.
This one has the colours of an eggplant; even more interesting ♥♥♫☼

Kyrin

I realised from your comments that I hadn't included info about that part, so I fixed it promptly ;-)

Birgit73

I thought it was as I've seen photos of northern Canada, Iceland, and Norway displaying those colours...an amazing natural phenomenon

Kyrin

Thank you, both XOXO

That purple starry background is of a real aurora (found it in a copyright-free search)

Birgit73

I agree with robf in that this image does indeed portray an angel of the Northern Lights...with the light shining through to illuminate her shape. I like the idea of the LED paper weight as your 'source' floating in front of the purple and green background.

Two years ago I was driving back from a tutoring appt when I saw this green glow in the sky. I stopped to watch as it floated in random waves and then gradually faded into the night sky. That was the only time I chanced to see the Northern Lights here in Alberta, though I'm told that they do happen somewhat frequently. It was still an amazing natural sight.

robf

Wonderful, and it really does have the look of an aurora. Christine, you're becoming a true original.

Our dad called us outside one fall night to see the Northern Lights. I was about 12 years old, so 1964 maybe. The little city where I grew up is at 45° 53' N, only a couple of hundred miles/km closer to the North Pole than the equator.
It's still a fun & fond memory after all this time.

Kyrin

Meet your angel of the Auroras...
