A year ago today, at this very exact hour and minute, yours truly returned to land of NSM.
Quote from: Bespinben on October 22, 2014, 09:17:08 PMBlast from the past! I'm back.

To commemorate the occasion, the Staff has worked extra hard, night and day, to bring you a 60-sheet arrangement extravaganza! Special thanks to our lovely Automated Submissions Machine™, which as of today is now 1-year old as well. Honorable mention to all our arrangers, particularly InsigTurtle, who's PMD2 Barren Valley arrangement has been sitting in the system since LAST October. Thanks for being patient champ ^_^

- Nebbles, the beauty with the heart of frozen steel


I have stuff on the site ;u;

Oh and also I expected 50 sheets, not 60. Quite the pleasant surprise.
Quote from: MaestroUGC on August 19, 2015, 12:22:27 PMBraixen is a wonderful [insert gender] with beautiful [corresponding gender trait] and is just the darlingest at [stereotypical activity typically associated with said gender] you ever saw.


Hurray for everyone! Looking at some of the submissions and they're all excellent! Wondrous work everyone!




Wow amazing update! Great job all arrangers and updaters!

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.


Quote from: Yug_Guy on October 21, 2015, 08:01:05 AMI've been noticing that a lot of submissions have been accepted lately...
...does this mean we'll have a 50 60-arrangement update jubilee?

Congrats to Bespiben for one year at NSM and 60 updates!
Also I've finally got another arrangement up!


Crap!  Now how will we have an update ready for Friday the 13th?



All right!

Seeing all these incredible sheets... fills me with Determination.
Quote from: Yellow on October 13, 2015, 05:18:40 PM
...Really though. Don't let them take it away from you. That desire for something more, for adventure... for destiny. Don't let them turn it against you, either.



Now, anybody care to compile how many updates we've had in this first year of the new system?

...oh, heck, that's only to look at the Site News forum, I'll do it myself.

I count 16 updates since this date last year. That's roughly one every three weeks, which is an amazing pace compared to how it used to be. Assuming 25 new sheets on average for every update, that's 400 sheets in total, which means that ~17 % of the sheets on site were arranged over the past year, and that's a conservative estimate. Considering that many were replacements, it's hard to tell how much the amount of sheets grew by, but based on the estimated numbers alone I'd say 12-15 %. Anybody wanna count the number of uploaded sheets in total more accurately?

...wait, that's not too hard either. Just count the number of (relevant) pages in the Archive subforum, multiplied by the number of entries per page, seeing as one new thread is made there for every accepted sheet. Doing those numbers, I find the first old, archived Submissions thread at the very bottom of page 19, with 20 threads per page, giving us 379 sheets accepted through the new system. Though, some of them are deleted, amounting to perhaps 50 in total.

However, we have some arrangement projects too, and I don't know where they fit in all of this. 50 sheets from Pokémon RBY were replaced or newly arranged. I find only some of them in the Archive, which means there is some overlap but very little. In addition, there's the McDucky update which left no trails in the Archive that I cared to find. We also have a very nearly completed Animal Crossing arrangement project (two sheets missing), and a quite-nearly-finished Super Mario 64 project, which together add up to some 80 sheets. All in all, without scouring the news threads and doing a manual count, I'd say we're somewhere between 400 and 500 new sheets this past year, which is quite an achievement. Certainly magnitudes better than some earlier years.

EDIT: It should also be mentioned, the standards we set and the quality controls undertaken are of course also improved compared to the site's earlier days. All in all, arrangers and staff deliver more on both quality and quantity than ever before.

Hooray for NSM!
Emergence - a story exclusive to NSM

Yes, I'm still around from time to time. For quicker response, you can reach me by PM, or drop by Smogon to say hi. I go by "Codraroll" there, because of a bet.


Well said!  Maybe we CAN pull together an update for friday the 13th in that case...
