Brand New ActionScript.org Goes Live

You can read all about the changes, why we made them, and what people think (as well as give us your opinion) via this Forums thread.

Tutorials, Articles and Blogs Sections -- Site Speed Issue

We're experiencing intermittent issues with the Articles, Tutorials and Blogs sections of the site. Some users are noticing that they cannot load pages in these sections; the site simply times out. We're presently looking into the cause of this issue. You can help! If you experience this issue please write to us via staff at actionscript [dot] org and let us know the following:
  • The time, and where in the world you live
  • Your browser
  • The section of the site which you tried to load without success
  • For users of Firefox, if you try loading the same page in Internet Explorer, does it load any faster?
As the problem is intermittent it's really hard to catch, so we greatly appreciate your assistance.

Tutorial Competition Closed

The Tutorial Competition is now officially closed. We'd like to thank everyone who contributed; there's been a range of very high quality contributions, which always makes the judges' jobs hard. As noted in the competition description, winners will be announced in the New Year. Stay tuned, and thanks again!

Minor extension to tutorial competition

We've had a few requests to extend the deadline of the Tutorial Competition, and with the great quality submissions we've been receiving, we've decided to extend the closing date by one week from Dec 9th to Dec 16th. That gives you a few more days to get your content up to scratch and into the CMS! Good luck!
