Yeah, I've heard tales about people who get really mad about there not being off vocals and feeling like producers have to put them up, which is completely unfair. My biggest problem is I like a lot of songs that are not Vocaloid, so there are almost never instrumental versions. Good luck trying to find off vocals for lesser known KPOP songs or a lot of French songs.

Isn't a common theory Unhappy Refrain made because wowaka was frustrated at the vocaloids taking all the credit for their work? If that's true, it's clear that this is a problem.

I think if I like a vocaloid singing or a person really depends on the song. Some songs just sound better with Vocaloid, at least to me. Like Sweet Devil sounds better with a vocaloid to me. Pane Dhiria is so odd sounding, a vocaloid works better. It really just depends, but it all comes down to personal preference.

Also, I put up the May monthly theme, so if anyone has time and feels like participating, please do~

Oh? I've never heard of the wowaka thing before. Huh. Now I'm curious. But yeah, I'm sure that it would be super frustrating not getting credit for their songs  hmm...

I...I will try to participate this month? Try?

More questions~! Happy Has your favourite utaite/youtaite changed over time? Favourite vocaloid? Aaaand in relation to what we're currently discussing, who's your favourite producer(s)? 

My favourite utaite used to be clear, and I still do enjoy his covers and singing lots, but I just don't listen to him quite as often anymore. I personally like IA and Fukase! For producers...maybe Kairiki bear? Anyone who makes a dramatic sounding song called Pudding Annihilation deserves respect, in my opinion, though I also like Kikuo.

I don't want to say I have a favorite utaite, it's more so a combination of what uaites sing what songs and if I like their voice. For example, I really like 96Neko and she often sings songs I like. I like Amatsuki, but he doesn't sing songs I like as often so I listen to him less. I find new utaite through looking up songs and seeing who sang them usually. So, my favorite/utaites I like change based on who I can find sang a song I like the best....if that makes sense. I kind of rambled there XD.

I really like Gumi's voice. I don't listen to a whole lot of lesser known Vocaloids since they have fewer songs and it's harder to find them.

I also don't really have any favorite producers. I listen to a large array of producers.

So you won't believe this, but I came across this forum while searching for a Billy Mays Utauloid. I'm not sure how that brought me here of all places, but I've been looking for this for about a month now with no luck. You guys wouldn't happen to know about a Billy Mays voice bank, would you? I wouldn't think so, but it's worth asking I guess.

I think I'm lost in the depths of the internet. Most of the links are in reference to 2015, but the header has been updated for 2017 and there are still active users, so that's kind of curious. Anyways, have a nice day. Hopefully I remember to check back here.

A Billy Mays voicebank? That's a thing? I think my life has been changed XD. Anyway, no, I don't know anything about that.

Regarding the 2015 link stuff, I can answer that one. The person who is the primary admin (Aerlith) has had a lot of important life events happen in the past few years, so she hasn't been as active. I haven't really seen many other moderators on either, but I don't know their reasons. I know Aerlith wants to start back up different YTC group things (mass dubs, dubs with people not on YTC, etc.) to get the forum back up and running again, but she's really busy. So, the links say 2015 because that is when many of the most recent YTC group events were held. I think only Aerlith has the access to change the 'word scrolling at the top of the screen' thing, but moderators might as well? I'm not sure, but that's why that hasn't been changed either.

On the flip side, the individual portfolios and group recruiting threads are still fairly active, and I host the YTC monthly theme each month.

Hi ;o; Yes, I'm so sorry. Grad school is super busy. I'm not sure how active I'll be in the coming fall, since I'll be taking four classes, plus an internship. I'm doing three classes over the summer right now, so after I'm done with stuff, I don't have much energy to run anything, especially since I can't contribute to any mixing, art, or animation at the moment. The best idea would be to recruit new staff, so *cough*Joker*cough* that would probably be the first step, then figure out things from there. 

And @Hanks Hill: I-I'm not sure how you're getting a Billy Mays voice bank either. That's interesting.

Other than the monthly themes, I don't really have any experience hosting events or maintaining a forum, though I guess most people starting out probably don't have much prior experience either. Of course, I'd be totally willing to try to help with things neko.

I don't think the staff vetting process works like this, but for what it's worth, I think Joker being YTC staff makes sense and I would vote for her

AWWWWW~ Thank you so much shy . I don't think that's how the process goes either, but I doubt the normal process can be used when there are only like, five people relatively active on here XD.

i don't know if anyone's said this before, but...

chorus battles attract people, right? and this forum was where the first one ever was organized, so why not use that precedent in history we have? (though already i am grimacing at the administrative/organizational work and potential drama of this idea...)

Twitter and Discord are so strong for connecting. The forums are where things began for me though. : ) 

I'll be planning a popularity contest early 2018 ... Youtaite Prom. I'll link the forum as a home base for questions to drive more traffic into the website but I reckon' most of the questions will be asked via Twitter. Hrm.

Joker and I had already talked about her informally helping before; I just never got around to actually putting her as a mod. <_<; (I'materribleadminI'msorry).

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to host a chorus battle. >.< I kind of want to move away from the whole chorus battle thing, too, since it's already pretty active in other places of the net, and there are already a lot going on, so the incentive to join this one might not be so strong. The forums are a great place for discussion though, so that's where we were thinking of going towards. Joker and I are working on some discussion prompts that people can reply to and share thoughts with. It'll definitely be easier than trying to follow a thread on Twitter or Discord, so hopefully that'll help! If you guys have any ideas for discussion prompts, feel free to PM me so I can add it to our list (Joker is taking care of some family stuff, and she might not be feeling up to checking forums right now).   

I'm not sure if the youtaite prom thing might be a good idea to link to the forums. I'll see if I can clean up the forums before that happens and see if we can find more staff, too. We could definitely give it a shot though. xD Just need something more first!   

Thanks for letting me know! I thought I set it to never expire, but apparently not! New link is: https://discord.gg/fDZPBUk and I will also update the sidebar.

All of my family stuff has been taken care of, so I should be pretty free from now on. I've never used Discord before, but maybe I should start.

The Youtaite Prom sounds like it could be interesting, but I have no idea what it is XD.

I'm new to this forum, and it's kind of sad to see that it kind of died before I had a chance to join because there's a lot of things that I want to do like meet new people and host a Recording Music 101 Masterclass for people.

Is there any way that people can get together on a single platform like Facebook or Google?
