Feedback / Re: New Submission Feature(s) Request
« on: July 15, 2019, 01:52:40 AM »
My only worry with this is for strange edge cases where either A: a youtube video isn't available or B: More than one youtube videos are required.  But you could always include an option to override the required youtube video for those purposes (but maybe have the default be requirement so that new people don't forget).
Still, I think those edge cases only apply in 1% of cases - I think it would be worth it for the 99% of the other times so that we don't have to keep incessantly reminding people to provide a Youtube link.

Credit Information Requirement

I believe that crediting the right people should be a higher priority than we put it at. Right now, it's as if the only people that point out errors like these are just fans of the games involved, and notice the small mistakes easier than others. Yes, some games have better resources for credit information than others, but this shouldn't be an excuse to correct inaccuracies only when prompted by prior knowledge. We need a better system for making sure this information can easily be checked.

I propose that before submitting a sheet, the Composers, Additional Arrangers, Developers, Publishers, and Initial Release Date should all be researched and listed to insure these bloopers don't go unnoticed. This way, the sheet cannot be submitted incomplete, and with everything displayed in one place in the topic, the updaters can verify the credits in an easier, quicker way. Lastly, the release date requirement will save updaters the trouble of entering it in themselves later.
I mean, this is certainly implicitly required considering that we require composer info, publishers, copyright years, etc. on our arrangements already. And tbh, the only way we can assure accuracy in regards to this stuff is if we have someone checking each arrangement to make sure all that info is correct. After all, some people don't put nearly as much research into that stuff like you or I do, and some people flat-out don't care. Actually, that's not a bad idea now that I think about it...

Then again, I'm not trying to be a downer on this particular request of yours - I think there's still things we can do. For sure, we should definitely make a more official standard for how to do copyright stuff; I know that's been talked about in the past, but since you bring it up, now would be a good time to get on that.

Why, exactly? All of the other "Battle" replacements and existing sheets on the site suggest that this title is perfectly fine; some of them are yours, too. Is this new?
That's what it's called on the official soundtrack. As to why FF2's naming convention is different from all the other games - your guess is as good as mine.

Hey, uh...

Why are the only NES FF Battle themes on-site from the objective worst one of the three?

...also, name change to "Battle Theme 1" pls

Wait a minute... I'm a staff member now. So, that means...

That's right! The NSM Audit is now an OFFICIAL PART OF THE WEBSITE!!! Woohoo!!!

Today's update added a total of 6 replacements, all of which were taken off of the spreadsheet. In addition, the game Tetris (GB) was taken off of the spreadsheet entirely.

This has been your NSM Audit Update™. We look forward to seeing you once Yug realizes that being a mod means absolutely nothing as far as the Audit is concerned

Levi, you're a wonderful arranger, and I'm very glad to see you so enthusiastic about giving feedback, but I think this time I will probably do my own thing. I really, really don't want to come off as disingenuous, so please don't take this the wrong way.

I was told that the question in this song was whether articulations should be present or not. I listened twice, and then read the thread. Of all things, slurs were the last thing I expected this song to have. It's just my two cents, but I think the song is fine as it is. Staccato doesn't really make sense since each note is pretty much the same length anyway. While there may be some chiptune music that wants articulation, I don't think this song is one of them.
Pretty much my thoughts in a nutshell

Yeah, I think there are at least eleven games, with 3 not having the original creator on the team. The series is a bit of a hit and/or miss to most folks.

Notes and stuff look good to me, the only thing I have to say is that I think it's a shame that there are no articulations anywhere in the sheet.  There are probably a lot of things that you could do, but particular ones I'm noticing are slurs on beat 3.5 in bars 19-20 and staccatos on the crotchets at the start and ends of bars (like the two in bar 9).  It's up to you obviously, but I think it might help make the sheet extra special if you thought about it and included some.
Fun fact: I am absolutely terrible at figuring out where slurs should go in a piece of music. A lot of times for me, it ends up being blind guesswork.

That being said, when it comes to 8-bit compositions like this one, I usually choose to have too few articulations as opposed to too many. Admittedly, chiptune isn't super great when it comes to being dynamic or having articulations, so I figure I'd keep the piece somewhat uniform and let the performer decide if they want to make the song less uniform when they play it.

I'm not trying to outright dismiss your critique, I'm just stating where I'm coming from. I can definitely be talked into adding some articulations.

Yeah I was a bit confused by this as well. Actually my suggestion would to be to just eliminate the right hand part in m. 2 completely since it sounds like the original only plays a single line there.
I mean, technically there's two lines playing there, but honestly eliminating the top one just makes things so much cleaner.

- I'd personally recommend removing the courtesy An's in m. 5 and 8 since it's past a system break and the A#'s in the previous measures were only neighboring accidentals and not harmonic changes. Up to you, though.
- I'd also suggest moving m. 4 down a system. The first system would be nicer to have at 3 measures instead of 4 because it's already shortened.
- The last dyad in the right hand should have an A on the bottom, not F#.

Well, actually only 69% of my activity is on discord.  (Which is still a lot I guess.)

First up, Dudeman and KefkaticFanatic will be stepping down as moderators, and Sebastian and Brassman388 will be moving to the Ghost Updater role. Due to recent events in the real world, these staff members aren't able to be quite as active online anymore for the foreseeable future. Please join me in thanking them for their service~ (As a reminder, like other Ghost Updaters, Seb and Brassman still plan on helping out when they can, however often they are able to drop in.)
Can we get an f in the chat for our boys?

In other news, I got this really cool hammer today. I'm hoping to try it out sometime :)

Tetris [GB]

Another day, another replacement.

Ya like Russian folk music?

While I'm at it, any chance you guys could change the name of this game to "Tetris (GB)" for further clarification?


This sheet is based off of my full transcription of Aerith's Theme, I'll leave a link to that here.
