Winner of Creative Writing Contest

•December 26, 2011 • Leave a Comment

The Creative Writing Contest this month was announced last week, and ended yesterday, Sunday, December 25th (Christmas). The contest included people to write about a story regarding the holidays, and the Samton Network team would edit and turn the writing project into a animation. The winner for this contest is JADE, with her story “Dead Christmas”, which was edited and revised to “Saved on Christmas”. The entire project was about a young lady who was being chased by a stalker, and her friend saves her on Christmas. The story was edited by Solange Wright and Phillip Thomas, (P-TO), and was later animated by the media team.

“It was a good contest. In fact, we had a lot of entries. But ‘Dead Christmas’ was the best that was revolving around Christmas, a major holiday that is celebrated all over the world.” says P-TO. Link/Video is below this post.

Samton Network Reform

•December 14, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Samton Network has been planning a new way of working the site, and are voting to demote Nathan Peterson on Journalism and Advertisements. This way, the site owner can officially manage her site without stress of copyright infringement. 

“The idea may not make much sense, but we’re setting up a poll this week. I want to be able to work on my own projects, and have people help me. Not them taking over. It just seems a little unorthodox. The new plans will be to change up the blog format, and start posting more pictures. Also, adding news as a tag on the blog. Advertisements will also be more complimentary, so that people can promote their site without breaking the network’s regulations. It was developed last month, and I believe that I want the website members to vote. We’ll be designing a quick page on the topic, and we’ll let people vote.” says Solange Wright

 

More information the reform will be posted later this week.

Interview Solange Wright November 20, 2011

•November 21, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Samton Network is already sketching out plans for the year 2012. According to a webmaster, premium services will be installed, along side with advertising and marketing. New film projects will start to come out in the summer, and new music artists will be released. These were originally the plans for this year, but the older Samton gets, the more appropriate these plans will become.

“In the year 2012, Samton will become 3. The third year of Samton will be a big year. I’m definately hoping for the best,” a preview of Solange Wright’s recent interview which will be released later this year.

Meebo IM Returns

•September 20, 2011 • 1 Comment

Meebo instant message chat returns on Samton Network. If you’ve been using Samton since December of 2010, then you would definitely recognize this important feature. It was easy to use, and you could chat and see who was online. Don’t forget the fact that you could also connect with Facebook, while still on Samton.

“It was the most revolutionary feature on Samton Network. End of Story!” Says Sage M., WebMaster on Samton Network of New York.

 

But why did it leave? Why did something so convenient on Samton dissapear on premises? We sent a report to Meebo, and according to the response, we were accidentally labeled as violating Terms & Services. Two days later, the issue was resolved.

No real new look, just a great feature discovered by WebMasters. Pretty Small to see, we know. Photo Taken by Sage M.

“We were suffering from the problem since April [2011]. I guess we just never decided to actually contact the programmers.” continued Sage.

What’s going to be added besides Meebo? A testing happened earlier today at 12pm, and the results weren’t good. The agenda was to try to collaborate Wibiya with Meebo. But neither of them would corporate to give live stream information, and chat. Originally, this is what one of the WebMasters [Sage M.] quoted before the official test:

“The testing is going to see if you can visually add Wibiya on the top of the site, and conclude template layout, graphic quality, and runtime duration. If all goes well, we can then send simultaneous messages via Wibiya, Email and phone. It’s going to be great.”

Later, after the testing she stated:

“Well, at least we were giving our options. We could upgrade to Wibiya Chat, for $10USD/month. But to be realistic, we have other plans coming out soon.” ~ Sage M.
