Hey ! i just created a gametabs fan page : https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gametabs/236081166587217?fref=ts Idk where it's going but if you want you can check it

I don't really care I guess?

I don't really care I guess? It's a nice idea but gametabs has been so fucking dead lately Im not sure how well it will go.

It would be nice if we could drum up some traffic to the site I suppose.

I also have some concerns about what would/wouldnt get posted to represent the site.

Maybe we could have a discussion about "what are your favorite recordings throughout gametabs history?" and we could try to pick out some of the higher quality ones to post on the channel. Again I'm just not sure how we would decide what is or isn't up to par.

I'm not trying to discourage you or anything, and I know I probably dont have any room to talk since Ive submitted basically nothing to gametabs, just thought Id give my perspective.

EDIT: I know this isn't exactly the right thread for this but here are some of my favorite recordings. I didn't include some people like Bhael, Kabuki, Link, Plane and some others because they have too many videos for me to link them all. Also I assume since their youtube channels have quite a bit of views they probably don't want traffic being diverted elsewhere.

I have an idea to make a "best of gametabs" selection, but maybe we should not consider the videos from the members that left (thinking about Calebelijah).

Don't worry i won't post anything as long as i don't have the confirmation that it is a good idea ^^

EDIT :

Well we can spot some videos, but not all their videos, their will be people folliwing GT channel and not mone for exemple, but if he sees one of my videos and like it, maybe he will follow me too.

Oh you like my ff4 main theme cover, haha^^
But i won't put anything online without the approval of the one who made the original video.

Here is how it looks like now (i'm a noob i know)

Yeah I wasnt suggesting all of someones vids but a lot of people with just a small handful of vids dont get much views compared to people who consistently put out videos.

Also I just wanted an excuse for peopel to share recordings they liked in case I missed any awesome ones.

And the most known of us

And the most known of us (thinking about Link for exemple) can bring people on the GT Channel where they will discover the less known of us.

Fot the "best of" (can be a album too xD) my idea is to ask people from GT to make apost in the topic with their best covers (from 1 to 5, no more).

And then poeple will vote here for the songs they like the most from you, if you post 1 2 or 3 songs you can have 1 in the best of, if you post 4 or 5 songs you can have 2 (if they are good).

Exemle i post :

Song A
Song B
Song C
Song D
Song E

Then people will vote for my song, as much as they want, could be 0, 3 or all the 5, doesnt matter)
After a week the votes are :

A : 2
B : 0
C : 6
D : 3
E : 7

So i'll have the songs C and E in the best of.

(Maybe it's too complicated? xD)

What do you guys think about the "Best Of Gametabs" stuff?
I just need people to post 1 2 3 4 or 5 of their videos here and then votes, no need to make new videos, this can be done quickly and would give us some time to end the FF7 stuff ? ^^'

1) So as you maybe noticed, i don't really put new stuff in the GT channel, because not time or becaus asking for video file etc is borring, and even if we share viewers etc it's bringing actual views to you guys so...
I will stop putting those kinds of stuff, i'll keep it for Album trailers, tune contest winners (if they agree) and idk what can be put...

2) I've decided to be more active on youtube recently and i noticed many player got their Fan Page on Facebook and it's kinda succesfulf.
So the quesiton is, do you think it's a good idea to make a "gametabs" fan page, with covers of the weeks, trailers etc but with direct links to YOUr channels ?
If you think it's not worthing it, just tell me ^^

It's a great idea, but I don't know if many people would join (I would :D). It's a pity that only 136 people subscribed to the youtube chanel for now. I think it is a great way to promote the contests and help new game coverers to be recognized by others. maybe you should give it a try and see if it's worth it's time. If not you can close it anytime agein :)

I never liked the Youtube page because I felt that it mainly coincided with your interests and not really Gametabs.net's. That said, I personally feel that Gametabs.net is it's own entity and isn't really in need of a social media outlet. What is Gametabs going to start tweeting now...? haha Idk my point is I think it's kind of weird for someone to make all of these alternate webpages under the cloak of Gametabs.net's community but that's just me.

Well i fits my interrests

Well it fits my interrests because i take care of it, the "Best of NES" was too help some people to get ideas for covering some songs for the NES album and the covers of the week were my favorites.
I asked if someone wnated to moderate it with me but no one responded.
I'm maybe megalomaniac but i'd like to see us "grow" a bit, i mean, we are an unique cominity, idk other websites like this one, but most of the others VGM cover artists never heard of us.
The albums thing is a part of that, we shared our works and pasison with more than 1000 people, it makes me feel proud and happy.
Maybe i'm seaking attention, and if you guys think i'm doing it the wrong way, using the "gametabs cloak" well just tell me to stop.
I'm still interested, if this page is going somewhere, into having some helps from 1 or 2 moderators.

Well have to say that in my studies i had to organised so events and music festivals, so i just enjoy this kind of things...

I hope my frenchy english is understandable X)

No one's preventing - not using the brand "Gametabs" - ;D
It also could be something independent with the same background idea...but only with another new unique [awesome name] ^^
It totally would be the same, because Gametabs is a small nice community, a single „own entity“ and network, as already has been said =)

VGM is no homogene group of people, it's a great set of loose bigger and smaller and very small networks (of interpreters) and it just could be interesting to see, where a FB-page is leading to, or not^^

Somehow most people seem to be on facebook and I only found VGM-Groups und Artist's-pages...
It's like an experiment :) Maybe no one needs it, maybe it was only missing...50/50...

This site and especially the forum are still and will be important :)
But here are mostly musicians and tabbers, which is not so interesting for „only-listeners“ who don't play anything, so these could be a target group for the FB^^

Okay, one focus could be the produced stuff and maybe that's a bit attention-seeking, but if it's kept fair and isn't used for pushing up only the same small group of people all the time, there shouldn't be a problem :) [so, no elitist self-congratulation … haha the german idiom „Selbstbeweihräucherung“ is better – to self-burn-frankincense ...that's hard to translate xD ]

And f.e. in addition to that: More audience for the Gtcontests with the original music, not only between the participants^^ Maybe the winner could there be voted, so it's more interactive :)

Idea for keeping the activity flowing:
At least a „found object“ / „Spotlight of the first half of this actual week“ or something like that :D (Soundcloud, Myspace, Youtube or whatever!)

but I think the energy updating another website could be used elsewhere... like new stuff. New tabs, new collabs, new albums.

Also right^^ Keeping balance might be important :D

So, just some thoughts^^
long day >> sleep zZ

We'll see =^. .^=

Well we'll try it few weeks

Well we'll try it few weeks and if it works we'll keep it :)
Voting for Tune Contest can be great but it would make it longer too, like 2 weeks for making a submission and thne 1 week to let some people vote ? Ok maybe 1 week is too long ^^ But anyway their mmust be some strict rules so.
Well the energy that TheDoomOfAllFires (lol i didn't knew this lazy french guy was a Mod here :D) and i will put in this FB page doesn't stop anyone here to launch some projects, contest or albums or collabs or whatever.
And i think i'm kinda active here (even if there are some month where i don't have time) ^^

Well TheDoomOfAllFires and i talked a bit and we think that we will put there :
- Trailers, from the youtube channel that i'll still use but only for trailers and
- Tune contest winner, we'll make videos from all winner songs (if they do agree, if not, just a direct ling to their soundcloud, for exmeple)
- Latests tabs, every week i'll make a print screen of the name of all the new tabs
- Covers of the Week, every friday we are voting (for now him and i only, i hope a 3rd admin, if someone owuld be ok to hlep ? :) for the "best eletric cover", the "best classical/acoustic cover" and a "3rd cover" and put them in highlights on the facebook page.

So what do you think ? Do you have ideas, suggestions ?
