Our next project?
« on: January 31, 2006, 05:53:19 PM »
What should we do next? Suggestions?

I'm thinking of doing something related to either music or games.

We are currently fixing up the History of Anime editorial. That will be our second editorial (was actually the first in AMGReviews v3.0).

"Methods to Our Madness" - How we write our reviews. As in, how each reviewer goes about his/her writing their review (and anything else we do for our reviews).
I fell off the wagon and now I can't stop.

For me that would be a short article.  

"I get bored.  I write a crappy rev iew and turn it in.  Tama beats me senseless.  I go back and write a better review."

I like the idea though.

Edit- I'd also like to see us eventually do the "Which aspect of [Anime, Games, or Music] is most important," that we were talking about some time ago.

I would like to do that.

"Story." Of course I would elaborate...

I just want to be able to contribute to whatever we do next.

I should write something about what it takes to be an administrator.

But it would suck horribly because 1.) I don't do anything and 2.) I wouldn't know what I was doing even if I did anything.

I'm all for that idea.  People need to have a better idea of where each of us stand on what is important in anime/games/etc.  Depending on how busy I get I might even be willing to take charge of planning and organizing it.  I just won't be able to code it or upload it.

I'm all for doing something game related.  Were you thinking of a recap thing like we did for anime, something like a preview, or something else entirely?

Can you imagine a report on the history of gaming? It would be a mile long, and would have to start out by defining how we invented baseball.

"In the beginning, there was baseball, a game created by a bunch of dorks somewhere in New York. Hah, New York, what king of queer british-**** name is that? Anyway, by the 1970's rolled around, people were finally realizing baseball sucks, and thereupon they had no real use for their televisions. So someone got the great idea to create an actual, sustainable purpose for the TV..."

No, Bowling is awesome because of "Let's Bowl"

Baseball is awesome because it is.  It has nothing to do with Asians liking it.

All right. Stop being off-topic.


I've got it. I've been thinking about doing this for a while, but I keep forgetting. Let's do a "Greatest Songs of Anime" editorial. Originally, I wanted to cast votes for it, where the readership would have a say. But nah, that's too time consuming and it would obviously be skewed because, well, the songs the public think are the "best" are NOT the "best" (being subjective for a bit here...). I think this is how it should work:

- We choose about 25 songs. 10 is too little to capture the scope of anime music and 50 is way too much to do in a few months, let alone a few weeks.
- This should be an ongoing process. I know it will take A LOT of time, so there must be some sense of patience as the editorial won't be published until, maybe the end of Spring!
- Before we can choose the "25 best songs" we must nominate songs. We do this by having each staff member "nominate" AS MANY songs as they would like. Nominations will be open up for a certain time frame.
- From the nominations, we will choose "songs that are really good," say, about 60. Then from that much smaller pool, we start, from the #1 spot to the #25 spot, to argue for certain songs. Every staff member has a say and the spot will not be chosen UNTIL the ENTIRE staff agrees. This is the longest process because we will argue from light to night, especially for the #1-5 positions.
- Since this is an "editorial," I guess it will be staff only. So the readers have no say :(
- Nominations are based on songs that appear on soundtracks or have been used in an anime. It can be vocal or just instrumental.

Of course, the rules can be changed. This is still in the "pre-production" process.

Sooooo.....Any thoughts? Staff or non-staff are welcomed to comment.
