I've launched the long awaited WolfPanda.com as a part of Velo by Wix's writing competition with Hacker Noon. I bought the domain in 2015, and unsuccessfully tried to convince my friend to make it the name of his Virtual Reality production company. Since then, it's just been directing to my LinkedIn. Here are the key steps:

Step 1: Clone this coming soon page.

Step 2: Insert wolf emoji, panda emoji, move h1 full width, make font indomitable like wolf and more forlorn like panda in zoo.

Step 3: Find and upload GIFs that embody watch the upcoming wolf panda merge is all about.

Step 4: Ask yourself not just why the wolf wants to be with the panda? but also why the panda wants to be with the wolf? This will lead to the core functionality of the web application...

Step 5: Find an engineer to make music by machines.

does anyone know how to use velo to auto-play some myspace style music that would fit this page?

also what should the music be?

I can see about getting a track to play, under the condition you commission me to make the wolf panda theme song
DavidFeb 24, 2021, 10:41 PM
And yes, you can do the panda wolf theme song. how much does commission cost?
DavidFeb 24, 2021, 10:41 PM
Instead of music, it could also just be movie previewer voice doing the words on the page

oof my voice is no good for such things. I can make computers talk in a borderline understandable way...
well maybe I can find one that sounds pretty human like.
..but even these things need some ambient music in the background!

commission is 1 hacker coin
richard-kubinaFeb 24, 2021, 10:45 PM
and zero hacker coins if you compliment me on my musical prowess
DavidFeb 24, 2021, 10:49 PM
that works! voice made by the machine fits the site
richard-kubinaFeb 24, 2021, 10:49 PM
then it's settled!
richard-kubinaFeb 24, 2021, 10:51 PM
I'm intrigued by this wolf panda.. pandas apparently symbolize strength and peace.. whilst the wolf is man's mortal enemy, ruthless and cunning. a true ying and yang chimera beastie

ok this was too much fun.. i made it more like a movie trailer. i watched john wick and taken trailers to get some ideas. my wife gave me the idea to include asian instruments like the taiko drums since ya know... pandas! then i added some synths to the action sequence bit because you mentioned it was pixelated so thought it should blend the two 🐺 🐼 πŸ”₯ 🐺 🐼 πŸ”₯ 🐺 🐼 πŸ”₯

not sure if you dig it, but I went ahead and looked into how to add it to the wix site, they don't really support background players that auto play (#fix-the-internet and all that) but I was able to add a lil player to the header.. so i converted this file to mp3... and it does loop, but maybe since it's a trailer type thing that isn't ideal. PLEASE ADVISE! 🐺 🐼 🎧

hahah its good!
richard-kubinaFeb 26, 2021, 7:52 PM
I kinda want to add some old school kung fu punch sfx to that middle part with the faster beat πŸ˜† that's supposed to be the ass kicking montage
richard-kubinaFeb 26, 2021, 7:52 PM
but maybe it's time to move on...
richard-kubinaFeb 26, 2021, 7:53 PM
orrrr actually make the series

Step 6: Use Velo by Wix to insert the play song button atop the page.
