Eclipse Exchange has been released

#1
Hi everyone,

The Eclipse Exchange has been released today! For those who are just joining us, the Eclipse Exchange is a new portion of Eclipse that allows you to exchange ideas and resources with other members. Think of it like a marketplace, an asset store - a place where you can share resources with others. We hope that you find it a useful resource while you build your game, and that you can contribute to help others as they build their games.

For the time being, the exchange will run as a private beta. You'll need an invite to be able to register and account and login to access the exchange. If you have not already signed up for the beta, you can still do so by filling out the form at: https://exchange.eclipseorigins.com/Beta. Once filled out, you should be contacted within 78 hours with an invite.

To those who have already signed up: you should have received your invites already. Please check your emails (and spam folder) for the invite. If you can't find it, please PM me.

Over time, we'll be adding new features to this. Lots to come! Please send me any feedback so that I can continue to improve the exchange.

That's all, enjoy!

As has been stated and planned in the future, one account for the exchange and forums.

The "View" button is small and could either be increased in size and/or have the picture/text also act as the view button.

The image download button just opens the whole image image in a new tab. I'd suggest either have the download open an overlay showing the image as well as a download and cancel button so the user can decide for sure if they want to image. (The buttons would be on the top (and maybe the bottom) so the user wouldn't have to scroll if they knew they wanted the image.


Couple more things:
Just realized there isn't a like button, only a favorite button, maybe we could have both?

Solidlink's and Zyn's tilesets have
"Attribution instructions: NOT REQUIRED, though appreciated: credit me as Buch and link back either to http://blog-buch.rhcloud.com or to my OGA profile page."
at the bottom, is this a default/mandatory credit or was it chosen?
Nevermind, both were from the same artist.
Baannounik shall control all!

Great points! I've updated the view button, and made the preview image on resources clickable. Also added the download overlay for resources.

Will be adding a like button shortly.

Beautiful work! I love it!

With the overlay, the tileset sometimes goes over the edge, maybe make it have a scroll bar?

Also thought more about the credits, and I think in resources, it should be
Created by: Buch
Uploaded by: Zynato
to help lower confusion about who the resource (music, tileset, character sheet, etc.) was created by. I would also have the "By: Zynato" changed to "Author: Zynato" in the idea section

Just noticed, the URLs should be how you changed them on the forums so they're more clear on what page you're on.
Instead of "https://exchange.eclipseorigins.com/resources/view/3"
you have "https://exchange.eclipseorigins.com/resources/view/Outdoor-Tileset"
And for things with the same name, "https://exchange.eclipseorigins.com/resources/view/Outdoor-Tileset-1"

Also found out that one person refreshing their browser can rack up the views lol, might want to see if you can change it to once per IP or browser?
