ASCII Text Art | Yahoo! Groups

ASCII Text Art | Yahoo! Groups | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
Talk about and share drawings and art made with ASCII text or anything to do with the subject of ASCII text art.

To post a message with ASCII art, I've found that it works to use the Rich Text version of the Yahoo message editor, copy your text from a plain .txt file then in the Yahoo editor, select the courier font then paste your text.
This preserves the spacing when the message is displayed on Yahoo.

Figuring that out was actually the real reason I started this list. My first attempt to paste ASCII text art on another user group didn't work and I wanted to work out the solution without flooding my other group with my experiments. :-)

[NEWS] WTF - Gawker trolls Coca-Cola into creating ASCII art based off of text from MEIN KAMPF

Laura Brown's insight:

The best comment I read on this post:


"I don't see how Coca-Cola was trolled. Gawker did precisely what Coke asked them to do, provide negative tweets, to which coke the proceeded to do precisely what they said they would. The issue here is in Gawker then trying to make more of cokes campaign than what was there."

YouTube Comments Vandalized by Troll Art

YouTube Comments Vandalized by Troll Art | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
YouTube comments have devolved into a forum for phallic art. Google has admitted its new commenting system has led to some unintended consequences, like pornographic pixel portraits.
Laura Brown's insight:

ASCII art used to flame or spam in comments gets called troll art here.

Tricked Into Quoting Hitler, Coca-Cola Suspends Automated Tweet Campaign

Tricked Into Quoting Hitler, Coca-Cola Suspends Automated Tweet Campaign | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
Coca-Cola has suspended its #MakeItHappy automated social campaign after a prank from Gawker had the brand inadvertently tweeting out several lines from Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf.
Laura Brown's insight:

This post actually explains it. 


The text used to create the dog is some part of the essay. It really has little to do with the ASCII art itself. Any text could be used when the art is computer generated. 


Look for concrete poetry for examples of text art created with quotes, manually versus automatically by machine.

My ASCII art archive...

My ASCII art archive... | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
...went MIA. It is a real shame, as it represented many hours of painstaking work, and there are less and less people practicing this fine form of artistic expression. I bet it's simply sitting on ...
Laura Brown's insight:

This one needs a space added back at the top line. 


Too bad the archive went missing. So much of the older ASCII art is lost because even the artists didn't keep it.

Make Hitler Happy: The Beginning of Mein Kampf, as Told by Coca-Cola

Make Hitler Happy: The Beginning of Mein Kampf, as Told by Coca-Cola | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
"Make it happy!" Coca-Cola's new marketing campaign exhorts. The campaign, introduced during a Super Bowl commercial, is accompanied by a stunt through which Twitter users reply to negative tweets with the hashtag "#MakeItHappy"; Coca-Cola then transforms those tweets into cute ASCII art. "We turned the hate you found into something happy," @CocaCola chirps.

Coke Tweets Inspirational Hitler Art, Isn't Actually That Into "Mein Kampf"

Coke Tweets Inspirational Hitler Art, Isn't Actually That Into "Mein Kampf" | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
Ladies and gents, here's your Worst Brand Tweet of the Week!
Laura Brown's insight:

I read the post but I still don't see how the ASCII art has anything to do with Hitler or "Mein Kampf" (which seems to be a very long essay you can find online). 


The writer really does not explain his problem with this ASCII art and I don't understand how he connects the art or the quote to something negative. I guess it was something to write a post about and get attention.

Coke Trivialized the Most Serious Issue of the Digital Age - PC Magazine

Coke Trivialized the Most Serious Issue of the Digital Age - PC Magazine | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
The beverage giant thinks cyber bullying can be fixed with a hashtag
Laura Brown's insight:

I think this post both illustrates the point and shows how people get it wrong. 


I see #MakeItHappy as changing yourself and your own attitudes. You can't change the world or the people who are negative, upset or frustrated, etc. You can only change and control what you put out there yourself. So, rethink your own actions. Think twice about how what you do or say will effect others (and yourself). 


To think you can send #MakeItHappy to solve an argument you aren't evne a part of just shows how much some people want to poke their nose in and start trouble. If you aren't part of the problem then stay out of it. Make it happy by not prolonging the battle or adding to it.
