Hey everyone,

I recently discovered there was a bug with recommendation system #2 that was making it perform poorly for a set of users. Basically any user with an ID of > 142000. If you've previously tried recommendation system #2, and have a user id > 142000, I would definitely recommend (hehe) giving it another shot.

Our contests are a way to try and make things a little more fun smiley

Almost all of our contests are raffles, where we pick a random winner from a pool.

For the normal monthly raffle, you just spend ACP for tickets. For our special raffles, meeting a critera will put you in the drawing for that tier.

About winning a contest:

If you have any other questions just let me know smiley

The moving of 1024x768 wallpapers and smaller has completed.

It's our plan to continue moving outdated content, but will be pausing things for now. The next size threshold the admin team has in mind is 1280x800 and smaller.

Posted In: Using Content FAQ

Wondering if you can use a specific piece of content on Alpha Coders for a specific purpose? This post should answer that question!

By default content on Alpha Coders is only usable for your private, personal use. If you want to use a piece of content in any public setting, or commercially, you will need to make sure that it's OK. Some guidelines are below:


Situation 1: The content you want to use has no author.

In order to know if you can use this content, you will need to try and find an author yourself. There is no author specified on Alpha Coders, and Alpha Coders has no copyright claim on the image.The two tools that are useful in this regard are:

If you are unable to find the author, you cannot know whether you can use the image or not, and therefore cannot use the image.


Situation 2: The content you want to use has an author, but that author is not who submitted the content.

This means that the author does not have a profile on Alpha Coders, but content shared by someone was attributed to them. You can click on the author name, and we might have links to other official profiles that artist has that aren't on Alpha Coders.

  Situation 3: The content was submitted by its author

You can view their profile on Alpha Coders, and PM them on Alpha Coders with your usage questions


We also have CC0 content at which you can use freely

Posted In: Wargroove is a hit!

A few days ago I picked up Wargroove, and it's been a blast so far. The game is basically built around Advance Wars nostalgia, and then runs with it. The commanders and different factions are suberb.

  • Pixel Art is great
  • Love supporting indie devs
  • $20 base price

Another modern quality of life improvement is that you can easily change the difficulty on campaign missions. For younger players, or people not great at turn based strategy games, this is a beautiful feature.

I definitely recommend checking it out laugh

Hey everyone!

A bit ago I posted about moving small wallpapers off Wallpaper Abyss and onto Image Abyss. You can see the reasoning here.

Anyways, this process has officially started! If you're a bit curious about how we are doing it - we are going nice and slow. There are a bit more than 2,000 wallpapers 1024x768 and smaller - and those will be converted to Image Abyss over the next month and a half.

The special raffle for February is an author raffle! Add author information to your submissions, or other submissions without author information, and get a nice prize for helping out! Alpha Coders is made better when we have lots of accurate author information for content - so your help is VERY appreciated!

Buying is looking like it's working for me. If the user is still having issues, have them post so I can ask questions.
