    EtchBox is a recreation of a classic game you should all recognize. This game was created by my good buddy Theno. This was his first attempt at a game/App. Its not quite what you guys are used to here at TrackMill because levels are not really playable, but they are surprisingly compelling to see drawn in action. So start drawing some cool stuff that may be added to the IOS and android app that Theno hopes to make.

    I can edit gooses posts, I rock! - Theno

    Voldermortz you never know Mechanic

    i think thumbnails should be removed as it sort of takes the fun away of watching the drawing appear
    perhaps just a question mark drawn on the canvas can appear as the thumbnail, or it could be shown in progress, anything, but i feel as though actually going on the page is sort of pointless when youve seen the thumbnail

    edit: voting icons also need to be changed from the coloraze icon to a little etchbox

    I think there isn't any point in a download button if there is nowhere to put codes. :p

    What if they replace it for the user's avatar? Then you'd know if its good or not if that certain user is reputable, and it might encourage some to join the forums so they can change theirs.

    that sounds good. either that or vold's idea, showing it like 50% drawn.

    I think we could do it to show the description of what they entered so it would say "slenderman" etc

    50% might look a bit demented and you wouldn't think it was very good.
