Call for New Updaters!
« on: June 17, 2017, 03:01:11 AM »

Greetings all! The updating staff is looking to add one updater to the team. This time we'll be trying something a little different though: rather than having us reach out to individuals, we'd like interested individuals to contact us. We would like to see if anyone here would be interested in helping out with sheet-reviewing and site updating (yes, the dirty work!). Keep in mind though, the things we would be looking for include some of the following:

-General free time to spend helping others
-A fair background of music theory/aural skills (you don't have to be a doctoral student at a university, simply being in school band or orchestra (etc.) would suffice. you're always learning/improving!)
-familiarity of the NSM formatting standards
-A higher version of finale would be extremely useful. You'll need something Printmusic or higher to be efficient.
-Willingness to work with others and communicate in a group chat (discord, skype, etc.)

If this sounds right up your alley or even think it is something you could see yourself doing, shoot me a PM (cc Latios, Maelstrom, Static, Bespinben, JDMEK5). We'll probably leave this topic up for a week or two to gauge interest before making any decisions. Disclaimer: there is no guarantee that we will add someone. We might also add no one; we're just interested in seeing who would be interested out there.

Remember: THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. We aren't looking for the "best arranger of all time," and this isn't just a chance to win a fancy forum title (although they are pretty fancy...). This is more of a chance to grow as a musician through analysis as well as working with others wishing to grow/improve in the same way.

This is an interesting way of doing things.


-General free time to spend helping others
Hopefully.

-A fair background of music theory/aural skills (you don't have to be a doctoral student at a university, simply being in school band or orchestra (etc.) would suffice. you're always learning/improving!)
Yep.

-familiarity of the NSM formatting standards
Yep.

-Willingness to work with others and communicate in a group chat (discord, skype, etc.)
Definitely.

-A higher version of finale would be extremely useful. You'll need something Printmusic or higher to be efficient.
Nope. Bye lol.

Can we nominate more than one person, if anyone at all?

If so, I nominate Sebastian, mastersuperfan, and Zeila.

If you read the original post, we aren't nominating others via replies here. If a member is interested they should send a pm.

I think if the community feels certain members would make for good updaters they should be able to field their opinions here. Said members should still apply via PM if interested, of course.

Try to do everything; you're bound to succeed with at least one.

Oh, certainly. His post just made it sound like he thought we were asking for nominations: "can we nominate more than one... etc."

Oh, no no no, I read the post; I just thought that if potential updaters were nervous about joining the team, they'd need some motivation from their peers.
