Now if only there was a way of extracting those studio files...

Hhhhh... I'm positive the studio program is there though-
I just don't know enough about techy shit to get at it.

edit: Since I don't know said techy stuff, but do have a bit of cash to spare...
I paid a website to download me the entire site off of Archive.org
Hopefully that'll include working Studio files and I can find a way to get them online again.

I just typed in the URL and got there... I can't believe it, can you do anything on the website though?

I can look at some profiles, but most images won't load.
And the login doesn't work, understandably- I haven't found a way to bypass it, either.
I guess I'll wait to have the files to see if the studio is still there.

The site I'm using seems very thorough: http://waybackdownloader.com/faq/
...So I'm getting any Flash and Javascript files that Archive.org managed to back up- and between those, hopefully, the Design Studio.

Don't we all? Hah... I mean, Leandra has figured out some really cool alternatives here, but I think we all miss the GS studio.
And hey, if I can pull this off, we could have the best of both~

I'll keep you posted.

Why'd you pay people to do that?
I don't understand what a company can do.

Why bring up the past when we have a new present on designers society?

I had a couple of dollars from commissions to spare, and what this company does is save people the hassle of sifting through pages and pages of weird instructions and code that are practically hieroglyphs to me lmao- they basically compile all the backed up site info into a single .zip, when the usual way to go about it is downloading each site component individually or making a program that can do it for you.

And ehh- I'm just doing this sort of personal nostalgia-fueled obsession project because when GS closed, I remember emailing them to ask if anyone had the studio program, but they said it was lost- now I've found a way to go through with that.

There's nothing wrong with this site, of course. I just think the classic studio would be a nice addition [not replacement] to queeky and sumo [which are not working for me: another reason why I started looking into alternatives].

TL;DR: it would be neat to have the studio on top of everything else, not as a weird past-taking-over-your-present thing
Kindly proceed to chill, m8

I really miss the way the auctions work but everything on the top banner is missing?

Hmmm... it appears that the HTML structure and CSS files are there, but important Flash files like the studio or auctions aren't there.
I'll ask them to run a search specifically for those.

@Fries Oh, well~ I guess I'd contact Leandra and work out a good way to include them in this site.

@Moon: I found that GS is partly stored on Archive.org~ I then downloaded as many files as I could to try and see if ones required to run the FDS or other features were still there.
If they were there and I could figure out a way to make them work outside GS, they could be incorporated as features of this site.
Haven't had much luck with that yet though, hah.

If that doesn't work at all... I'm thinking of building a studio in Flash from scratch~
It's pretty likely that I'll study interactive design when I finally finish high school, so to make it I'd use things I'd have to learn anyway >.>

Just rambling over here, don't mind me lmao
