Re: New (and old) Youtaites Unite!

Hey!! It's nice to see people still active here!! I really dropped the ball by becoming inactive.. @@ I'm sorry about that.

I have more free time compared to before now though and will for a while again, so I am wondering if you guys want to try to make this place more active again. If you do, I'll see what I can do. It'll probably be baby steps, but it'd be nice to get the place running again.

To be honest, I haven't done anything youtaite-related for over a year and a half, so there's also a lot I need to catch up on, too. >.<

Akiinah please Happiness  we're not going to disown you! But ehe~ I actually just went back to school from break (why I haven't logged in for so long as well...) so I haven't found the time to properly mix anything yet  ) :

Ohh, hello! Yes, well we're relatively active I suppose?

I would try to participate in monthly themes, but its hard for me to get any recording done because I live with 5 other people and they don't enjoy loud distracting noises disturbing their work  Sweat

That's...a lot of lyrics. That's impressive  Shocked

Oh and for sure, I'm definitely interested in trying to make it active again!

I'm glad to hear that! I have been thinking about changing the focus of the forums to make it more collaborative than competitive. Maybe stop with the YTC choruses and instead do mass choruses. And/or do member features every so often. You can submit either weekly or.. bi-weekly, not sure yet, but we could have different categories. Leaving a comment to give feedback can award people with points. Not sure what people could do with the points though, so if you have suggestions, that would be great! Smile

I know, right? Joker's sooooo impressive with her translyrics!

Guys, you're making me blush over here shy . But thank you both so much. I really appreciate it Shiny .

On a related note, the 'giving feedback to get points and earn specific badges' didn't go over so well as some people just don't want feedback and or took feedback as a personal attack/degrading. Kind of a, 'what right do you have to criticize me when I didn't even ask you to' way, which I can totally understand. I would probably be moderately bothered if people critiqued me to be honest XD. So, moral of the story, I don't think we should start up the feedback for points system again.

The only thing I can think of rewarding for points would be badges, but other than feedback, which I don't think we should do, I don't know how people would get points. All of that makes me think that maybe we should consider removing the point system all together or at least not using the feedback system.

Also, I like the new theme. It looks nice.

Joker, lmao. I actually went back to my post to see if I could find the Homedepot link but I didn't see it. hahah. But I'm glad it made your day a little brighter! xD

Hrm... I mean, I can attempt at those monthly themes as best as I can...starting in May when school is over. Sadly, I haven't been able to sing covers very often due to school and work and trying to have a social life on top of all of it. Sighhhh...  Sweat

Awww~ Thanks Keroron!~ *GLOMPS* I won't disown you either~ and no worries, friend-oh, take your time! There's no rush! ^w^)/

Oohhh, I think mass choruses and member features would be a great way for people to get to know each other! Of course, the choruses would probably be a bit more challenging considering that we would have to find people to actually join and commit to it (we're all a little shy at first)...but overall, it's a great idea! I think there have been a few people who have tried the mass chorus idea in other forums in the past... 

Hrm... I agree with Joker. I don't personally have a problem with getting feedback, but it IS true that some people take it as a 'degrading'. Some people do what they do because it is fun or they find enjoyment in doing it, so getting feedback on it might be a bit much. Though... I haven't been on the site for too long so I actually don't know much about the points and badges...

@Akiinah
If you look at the badges I have, only the top left one of Kaito is due to feedback, all of the others are for participating in other things. If you hover over badges, they usually tell you what they are for.

I think a mass chorus sounds nice, not that I'd necessarily participate though lol. Even so, since there isn't really a mass of people on here that are active, it might be difficult to scrounge up a mass of people. I suppose that also depends on what you define as 'mass' and where else you plan on looking for participants though.

In terms of feedback, I was thinking an area where people could post WIPs and get feedback, and that would be the points that people could receive. It could also be open to completed projects, but it would be up to people Smile

I agree with the mass choruses since we'd have to get staff back for that and I'm not sure how many of them are free now. I do like the idea of the member features though since it lets people get to know each other. We could have weekly nominations where you can send in someone else's work to nominate and it could be featured on the website. If weekly is too often, I'm also open to extending the length of time.

Okay, I could see feedback working for WIP's. That sorts out pretty much all of the issues the old system had.

Hi hi! ^0^/

I've been stalking here for like.... a few years (?) but just recently found the courage to post something (lol)

I like singing in general. My favorite music genres are mostly pop, rock, punk, metal; tho I like classical too! but obviously I LOVEE Vocaloids the most (duh) <3

my forever love is KuroKumo <3333 Her voice is just "aaaaaaaaahhhhh!!  I\'m In Love.." I can hear all the emotions in one song, I just- asdajfdfhasgawvjhdsbv-!! and now I can't even talk properly lmao

anyways, I'm v new here, I hope we can get along! ^w^
I'm always open for collabs! (both as a singer, and as an artist ;D)

Hi Yaon! Nice to meet you!~~

Oohhh, okok, I see now. Thanks Joker!
And yeah, I agree. I can see the feedback thing working if it's for WIP's. But how would the nominating thing work? I'm not against the idea, I like it a lot, I'm just curious as to how it would work and such. Like would people just nominate someone and that said person would be chosen by random or would it have to be a voting type thing?

Hi Yaon! Welcome! Smile Nice to have you here!

For the nominations, you would earn points by giving feedback to people's WIP and you can "spend" the points to nominate someone's work. Alternatively, we could also have a weekly submission where you can nominate stuff, and it could be selected by RNG. Of course, if you guys have other ideas of how to do it, feel free to share, too!
