Arranging Resources/Guides

...

Music Theory Resources (can either be links to appropriate pages OR user-submitted guides)

You had three sections. I was saying that only the first section seems necessary for the main site and that the other two (shown above) should go on the forums.

How are you confused about this?

Yeah it totally did not look like he was talking about you.

I in fact strongly disagree with Olimar's view that the formatting guidelines should simply be linked to. I think he underestimates human incompetence. I think they need to be much more prominent than a simple link within a page, or else it will not change anything.

Altissimo... never did I say that:

Actually (now that I've actually read the thread) I think the "contributing to nsm" is what I support. The arranging resources/guidelines/music theory resources seems like a mixture of overkill and repetition (since we have all that stuff stickied in the help board). Maybe just a link to that as a separate bullet would be more concise?


Contributing to NSM:

1) Signing Up for NSM (Links to the forum and sign up page; any necessary information about the sign-up process. This also includes deciding on an arranger name.)
2) Formatting Your Arrangement (Basically an overview of formatting guidelines. Links to the Templates and "need Finale help" forum threads as well.[/i])
---a) Why MUS? (An explanation of why it is we use MUS so that people stop asking that question too.)
---b) Importing From Other Software (A guide on getting scores from Musescore, Sibelius etc into Finale.)
3) Finding Composition Data (How to get accurate information about: composer, system, copyright company and year, and title. Includes "what to do if the composition is based on another piece".)
4) Submitting Your Arrangement (How to submit an arrangement. Includes standard submission etiquette, such as posting the soundtrack's Youtube video in the first comment.)
5) Feedback (This section is optional. Ideally it'd just be sort of an explanation of how to incorporate, and interpret, others' feedback. I say interpret because sometimes people have questions about like, "what do you mean measure 7 beat 1.75" etc. Could include common updater/musical terminology.)
6) FAQ

*Obligatory reading is difficult comment*

That's way too much for the main site though. If anything, there should just be a link to a topic like I said so that it can be regularly edited and maintained etc.

The arranging guidelines I think need to be as part of "contributing to NSM". People simply do not read them on the forums. I'm open to the idea of making the other resources less prominent (as long as they are indicated somewhere on the main site) but again I don't have final say so, community thoughts appreciated.

A link to a thread with such info seems much more appropriate imo.

I think the music theory part is unnecessary. Everyone will get that kind of advice from the people checking their sheets.

I agree.

I've been pseudo-following this topic and support the cause.

Thanks, all.

Have an awesome birthday, Olimar! I always enjoy playing your Pikmin Impact Site arrangement :D That's not exactly relevant but I've wanted to say that for a long time.

I hope you don't mean the horrible onsite version D:

I mean, I'm no global mod, but I'm sure I could find a few things on that list to justify a ban with.
