    Badgerboy for Minister of Sound!

    The sound library is in desperate need of repair. I usually check there first when I need a sound, but most of the time, it doesn’t have what I want, and I head over to Findsounds.com.

    There are three problems I see with the sound library:

    • It’s hard to find.[/*]
    • It is pretty disorganized.[/*]
    • No incentive to submit sounds.[/*]

    So how will I fix these? Let me go through them one at a time.

    It’s hard to find.
    [I will work with whoever I have to to get a spot on the blue bar at the top that gives a link to the sound library. Most likely, this will say “Sounds.” Right now, some people have trouble finding the sound library, just like some people had trouble finding the WIKI until it was moved up there.

    I also plan on making a dedicated WIKI page for sounds. There will be a link to this WIKI page of the front page of the WIKI. This page will contain a link to the sound library, as well as a few sounds from each category. These sounds will be changed every so often to keep things fresh.

    It is pretty disorganized.
    One sub-category (Household Noises) has a lot of sounds in it, and the Soundtrack category has a lot of music in it. I think both of these could be broken down even further for ease of use.

    I also plan on organizing some other categories, even if they don’t have a lot of sounds. One example is the Footsteps category, which I plan on breaking down into “6 Frame Walkcycles” and “4 Frame Walkcycles” to make finding what you want that much faster.

    There is no incentive to submit sounds.
    Why should I waste my time submitting a sound to the library? Yea, it helps out the library. But what if I want something more?

    If you continue to submit quality sounds, then you will become an official Sound Library Top Contributor! You will get a nifty little title above your avatar that tells everyone just how cool you are. How neat is that?

    Plus, if there’s an incentive for making sounds and submitting them, that means more sounds, which means better sounds in your brickfilms, which is great for everyone.

    I will also assign more Sound Curators.
    Because I can’t look at and accept/reject every sound submitted, I will be assigning more Sound Curators to help me with that task, as well as to assist me in maintaining and updating the WIKI page. When needed, they will also help me maintain the sound library itself.

    A Summary for People That Don’t Feel Like Reading

    • Sound library becomes easier to find by being put in the blue bar at the top, a sound library WIKI page is created that will be linked to on the front page of the WIKI and will feature some sounds from the library, as well as have a link to the library itself.[/*]
    • Categories and sub-categories get organized further.[/*]
    • Cool titles to show off your excellence in sound making.[/*]
    • Sound curators added to help make the WIKI page and sound library so much better.[/*]

    And I want you to understand that, just like last time, everything in here is not a goal, but a promise. I promise you I will fulfill everything I said here. Also, if elected, being both MoS and MoT will not trouble me. I will still finish everything I said in both campaigns.

    Please ask any questions, or state any comments or concerns you have.

    So thank you. I hope you like this campaign because It Sounds Good to Me!

    This might sound overrated, but it would be cool if you could become a patron for a year if you submitted a certain number of sounds. Although I cans see a few reasons why that wouldn’t be the best idea.

    Well, History500 is my buddy, but I’m going to admit, this is a better campaign than his, mainly because yours has more detail, and it’s more to sound than music. Sorry History, I really hope we can still be buds. I’ve seen many cases where emotions block logical judgment, it can screw people up, and they only hurt themselves. I don’t want that to happen to you. I’m sorry. Truly, truly sorry.

    Ummm, why would anyone vote for you? You probably spend more time at ILB talking about how stupid this website is than you do over here. Well, maybe not. But still, if your leaving later, it seems kind of dumb to elect you.

    Ummm, why would anyone vote for you?

    Because as of right now, I’m the best candidate out there. Just because the management is horrible doesn’t mean the site itself is. I’m doing this for the people that want to make brickfilms, not for our management.

    You probably spend more time at ILB talking about how stupid this website is than you do over here.

    That’s a ridiculous assumption. I actually talk about brickfilms over there, because there are good threads over there. Right now, there are no interesting brickfilming related threads here.

    But still, if your leaving later, it seems kind of dumb to elect you.

    Since when does leaving the forums mean I’ll be leaving the Wiki (and possibly sound library)? Even if I leave the forums, I’ll still be watching after everything I’m in charge of until my term is up.

    … he wouldn’t be worth voting for if he didn’t think he was a good candidate.

    Badgerboy, you’re all the MoS should be and you have some great ideas for the future. You have earned my vote.

    badgerboy, are you planning on collecting sound FX also or are you just fixing it?
    Right now your compaine looks better than History’s, but in life you learn that pretty doesn’t always mean good.
    Plus, I don’t know either of you well…
    Give me ONE good reason why you think I should vote for you.
