Net-Cards

Recently I received a wonderful birthday net-card from a group of people I was at a workshop with! It was really nice to receive and it made me realise that net-cards are not as commonplace a thing in the web revival space as a person might expect them to be.

A net-card is basically a postcard on the net, made using HTML and CSS and scripts  :ha:

I made one for my aunt's birthday a few years ago (she really loved it even though shes not a big web enjoyer) and I really should make more! (Fun fact about this card, due to a bug it will keep posting pictures of her face until your browser crashes  :happy: )

Do you make net-cards? And if so do you share them widely, or only with the person they are made for? Do you reuse net card code or do you make a new one each time?

I don't think I was aware of this concept before, I honestly thought this was going to be about e-cards! Now I want to make some for my friends next time there's a special occasion.

Interesting concept! Funny enough, I never heard about this before, but had this exact idea in high school. I wanted to make a little webpage for my English teacher. It was the best way I knew to be creative and make a card, since my drawing skills were (and are) really lacking. I never did make that card though!

I remember we used to send similar things to one another for our birthdays or other events. Usually it was in the form of a small flash video or game, and usually sent through email. Those were fun times!

I’d love to bring that back. Make a website duplicating that exact kind of thing except using Ruffle, obviously.

Yes! I remember those! I remember doing a Christmas one where you got to make a snowman, and I sent it to my grandparents :)

I love the concept of digital greeting cards a lot, maybe it's due for a revival  :transport:

yeah! way back in 2022 i made my then-partners a valentines card with carrd (since i didn't know any HTML at that point.) i've also made my friend an HTML game for christmas :-) net-cards are such a good concept and i feel like they have a lot more flexibility than just a paper card! + they're definitely more suitable for long distance relations  :smile:

i think the 2022 valentines card had, like, custom sprites and an embedded playlist? i only shared the link with the recipients but it would've been possible for anyone to find it. the game i made my friend was sent over on a zip file, though. i'm looking at maybe custom-making a pal of mine a digital pet for her birthday this year :-)

Yes, I love seeing shrines/e-cards on people's websites dedicated to their loved ones & pets. It's very cute seeing the love people put into them. I made one dedicated to a close friend for her birthday this past year. I like that it's like a hidden page on my site now.

My grandpa used to get these type of emails from his Army/VFW buddies back in the early 2000s. He thought they were hilarious! I remember they often had little Flash-based animations or games nested inside of them... not really appropriate ones, usually a fake "undress a naked lady" or post-9/11 "Punch Al Gore in the Face" mini-game type of stuff that was peak humor for jaded old Vietnam vets. Wild times, indeed.
