Site News / Some staff updates (Wednesday, 22nd of March 2023)
« on: March 23, 2023, 01:38:56 AM »
Hello everyone! I have a handful of announcements to make today regarding the staff. Please stick with me until the end of this post if you can. I’ll try not to be too long-winded :)

First up, regarding moderators! Longtime moderators MaestroUGC and braix will be retiring to Staff Emeritus. They've been helping keep the community in good shape since 2015 and 2016 respectively, back in the days when activity was primarily on the forums. Please thank them for their many years of assistance guiding the community to where it is today!

There’s news on the updating side as well. mastersuperfan will also be retiring to Staff Emeritus from the Ghost Updater role. He’s done a lot of sheet checking within the last few years and we owe a lot to him! Additionally I’ll be stepping back from updater work a little bit. I’ve done a lot since I came onboard the staff as an updater in 2015, but since last year I’ve found myself with less and less time for sheet checking. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere and nothing about my responsibilities is changing - I’ll just be checking sheets a little less often than I used to.

But that’s not all! Enough about reductions in the staff. You may have noticed that the current updaters (myself included) have been struggling a bit to keep up with submissions at the pace we would like to in order to have consistent quality updates. We’ve decided to bring Kricketune54 and XiaoMigros on board the staff as new Updaters! They will gracefully lend their spare time to help us review sheets and organize updates to keep the site moving along, so give them a big warm congratulations!

And that’s all for today! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask around or message me directly. See you around :D

Time for that topic again! Now that 2022 is over, what sheets that you made during the year are you the most proud of?

(If you're not an arranger, you can list your favorite new sheets by other arrangers instead!)

Here are my sheets for this project! I've added them to the Dropbox folder.

Kirby Super Star - Milky Way Wishes [Original]

Rhythm Tengoku - Night Walk [Original]

The title for the first is self-explanatory, but for the second here's a gameplay video for those unfamiliar with the game:

If you guys will allow, I may propose adding in another one since this and my other submissions above are fairly straightforward and don't contain a lot of unique material when considering loops.

Yoshi's Crafted World - A Teeny, Tiny Universe [Original]

This takes place in "space". Example video

Happy 2022 everyone! Here's the first update of the year!

We've recently started up a new replacement initiative to have replacements of some of our old sheets on site trickle in via each update, rather than some large projects we've done in the past.

Feedback / The Great NSM Audit™ 2.0
« on: January 11, 2022, 01:10:21 AM »
Ever stumbled upon an old sheet on site that needed to be replaced? Today, we present to you a new iteration of Yug Guy’s awesome spreadsheet from several years ago...

The Great NSM Audit 2.0

We’ve augmented Yug Guy’s spreadsheet to include a rough rating of how badly each listed sheets needs to be replaced. The ratings mean the following:
1 - The sheet is solid in terms of accuracy, playability, and presentation. It just needs some minor updates (such as the URL) and may be edited in the future by the updating team or another arranger.
2 - The sheet is functional, but needs some work. It may require rewriting some parts to make them more accurate or playable. It will probably need some considerable revision with the original arranger’s permission, or can be replaced outright.
3 - This sheet has clear basic flaws. Sections may be unplayable or bear a poor resemblance to the source material. A replacement should be made from scratch.
M - This sheet is not functional as a piano arrangement. It may be completely unplayable, sound totally wrong, or make no sense to read. A replacement should be made from scratch.

So, what does this mean?

The goal is to bring every sheet on the main site up to standard! The point of this spreadsheet is to paint a better picture of how much work there is left to do, and provide a rough order of priority - to show which sheets need the most work and would be best to replace first. Please feel free to browse and pick out a replacement to do that’s sorely needed!

Maintenance-wise, feel free to leave a reply in this topic with any questions. We’ll keep this updated and remove rows as sheets are replaced. If you have a comment about any one sheet/rating in particular though, it’d probably be easiest to leave a comment on the spreadsheet itself.

Happy arranging!

Past topics

You know the drill (and if not, refer to the topics above)! As 2021 draws to a close, what are the 5 sheets you've made this year that you're most proud of?

(If you're not an arranger, you can list your favorite new sheets by other arrangers instead!)

Site News / One more updater update
« on: October 06, 2021, 12:51:06 AM »
I have yet one more announcement to make regarding our staff, for now...

That is to say that mastersuperfan will be switching to the Ghost Updater role as well (and not just because of the month!). Please thank him for the past couple of years or so on the staff - for reviewing countless arrangements and helping to always push for higher quality sheets.

Stay super~

    [SW] Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind
    Old School Building [Original]

    Hang on, three sheets? Let me explain...
    Only 1 (one) sheet per person. We may allow more than that if the pieces are very short, and we may not allow pieces that are extremely long.[/li][/list]
    The first two sheets are direct transcriptions of fairly short piano pieces - 1 page each. The third is only 4 measures long. Hope that's okay~

    Help Guides / Reviewing sheets

    Reviewing sheets

    This guide is about reviewing sheets! Reviewing sheets isn’t just for updaters :)

    You can view the associated slides that were presented on 9/4/21 here: [SLIDES]

    I'll be filling out this forum post as time goes on, but the slides are available to refer to for now.

    Site News / Updater update
    « on: September 09, 2021, 05:16:23 PM »
    Hello everyone! Today I have some updates to share regarding our updating staff.

    First, Maelstrom will switch over to being a Ghost Updater. Maelstrom has been on the staff as an Updater for over 5 years, and we owe him a lot for the countless sheets he’s reviewed, as well as help replacing many old sheets on the site. Please wish him a wonderful time in ghost land grad school! (He’s still very much alive, for now.)

    Now, we’re having a new Updater join the team for the first time in a while! Bloop is a longtime community member with a recent increase in activity and desire to help out. Please give Bloop a warm welcome aboard the staff.

    Times change, life goes on, and new sheets are added to NinSheetMusic. As always, look forward to more soon :)

    Help Guides / Page layout, spacing, and more
    « on: May 28, 2021, 04:21:41 AM »
    What is this about?

    This is a guide about how to judiciously use the space on the page to make a sheet look nice. It'll cover things like:
    - Measures per system
    - Systems per page
    - Space between staves
    - Placement of articulations, dynamics, performance directions, etc.

    This guide is fully focused on presentation and won't actually deal with:
    - The specifics of how to adjust the sheet in a certain notation software
    - Choosing what notes to write or how to notate them on the staff (i.e. the arrangement itself)

    The information presented here corresponds to a workshop given by myself and mastersuperfan on 5/22/21. You can find the slides here: [SLIDES]

    Why does this matter?

    You can have a great arrangement, but a sheet that is unsightly and difficult to read. Taking the time to polish up the visual presentation after you finish arranging and writing can really help your sheet shine and look professional.

    To illustrate this point, take a look at this sheet snippet here:


    The arrangement itself is great, but a number of things stand out when trying to read this:
    - The last measure takes up an entire system and the notes are super stretched out, whereas the previous system has notes cramped in three measures
    - Symbols are not given enough space to be read easily, like the finger numbers and triplet number in the measure in the middle
    - There's not much space around the header but the last measure has a relatively large amount of white space above it

    Compare this to something like:
    - The sheet gets a consistent number of measures per system, with notes evenly spaced throughout its various measures
    - Sufficient space for dynamics and slurs
    - Section breaks that line up with system breaks

    Making your sheet look nice will make both you and the people reading your sheet happier about how clear the music is to read and how nice the sheet looks overall.

    To be continued...
