Community pack

Is this a good idea? how? what? when? will there be unending discussions about who will create it?

this is the place to discuss it

Jesus loves you [yes, you] so much, he even died for you so that you will not need to die, but live forever

That was quick WotL!

As i said in that other thread, i'd like to participate in such a pack! Altough i haven't much time at the moment (like so often ) i'll try to bring in a preset, as long as you don't plan to release it during the next week!

If there are others interested in such a pack, then what about a theme for this pack?

My ideas to avoid discussion about the "compilator":
1.) Let WotL do it, if he wants, cause he had the idea at first.. or:
2.) Let's vote in another poll between all those who have time and/or are interested...

You can make one if you want, but I can't help right now, so I say no.

We already have a community pack, its called community picks and Nullsoft didnt give a flying funk about it. As for another one, sure there is no harm, but I dont know what kind of support you'll get, after all not that many artists come to the forums.

I don't intend to re-do the ComPicks, thats was a selection of already created presets.

Neither is it my inention to include it in WA, but more just a pack we do together.
And since it's called community pack, those who don't frequent WA.com anymore don't need to be included if they don't feel a part of the wa.com community (not at all saying they're not a part of the AVS community of course) don't have to participate.

I'd like it to be a pack with new presets just from those who frequent here, long-timers and newbs. The idea is to have fun with eachother, no matter the quality of the presets so newbs can come in as well, if they have something that's worth sharing.

overall stated, a pack that says "This is us"

That's the way i interpreted it too. We should give this project a different name, to avoid confusion.
What about calling it FORUM PACK for the time being? When the project is finished, we could choose a proper name.

No offense but I think the overall quality of the pack will be pretty low... mainly because most of you guys are stinking noobs! you make me sick you damn NOOOBS! I mean really, your going to need at least a 30% non-noob turnout or the pack will stink.

I'm not trying to sink the idea, but be pragmatic.

you're such a mean guy, pak!!
And we don't stink, we've just not enough time to wash ourselfs!
//runs away crying

Joking apart, what is wrong about having a bit fun making presets? Do you fear that the community here on WA.com loses credit? Or are you just saying that you personally wouldn't be intrested in the pack, in case there are less than 30% high quality presets?

Nevertheless it wouldn't be bad to keep a minimum level. We could achieve that with a theme-pack for example.
...although i don't think that anyone who posted above is a noob. (provided that we understand the same by "noob")

who would be classed as a noob around here pak? i'm sure that any of the really new people wouldn't bother submiting something becuase they would understand that they can't make high quality presets yet. i think the biggest problem with this pack will be the lack of submitions, not the quality.

let's just start and try to make this pack. We'll see how good or bad / extensive or scanty it becomes.
Untill now we were only discussing formalities. it's time for some decissions, isn't it?

nice to have you with us in the end!
Well, as far as I'm concerned you can make the intro, cause yours mostly turn out to be quite good.

Now what kind of presets do we want to have? Shall we make a new one for the pack? If so, wouldn't it be good to have something like a theme or so?
Or shall we just compile a favourite of our own presets?

i see, but to me it is a bit too general. My idea was to have a pack with a more unified appearance, where all presets tend towards a same direction.
We choose a keyword/topic/theme... and our presets have to deal with it... (hope now you know what i meant?!?)

But it's also just a suggestion...

there's only so much you can do with llama presets, we should go for a less definitive word.

yeah i also think so. "Llama" is a bit too special.
Hmm.. It turns out to be more difficult than i thought to find a proper idea...

good theme for presets, but how does that represent us?

well, we are full of enrgy to make new unseen and extraordinary presets!! Aren't we?

Well it was just an idea... and a quick one too...

As i said it's realy hard to find a good theme. Perhaps we should just compile some presets that represent our styles (provided that we have one )..

of course we don't have to to search for a theme. (Especially not, when we don't have a good idea...) The whole thing was just an suggestion, to have a clue what to make...

Then, who will manage the presets and compile them?

I don't mind the compiling part..

But it's another thing that I'm concerned about:

^..^
Mysterious W
MaTTFURY
Mr Nudge
Pak-9
WotL

Those are the people who said to participate..
Are there really only 6 active AVS'ers around here?!


I agree on dumping the theme for the presets since noone has a really good one indeed.
So: 2 presets per person, in you own style then, with PAK building the intro?

A theme that defines us...hmm, how about "Stinkin noobs", no no wait "noobs Vs Good Artists", no no, "The noobs shall inherit the earth" hehehe

Is there any sort of vetting process for the pack? I mean, yunno.. a minimum level of quality required? Or a max number per submitter. And whats the minimum nuber of different submitters we can have to make up the pack? I suggest at least 6 different people to make it worth it.

What if you name it: "This pack sucks, because Tugg isn't in it."

Or as a extra choice: "This pack sucks, because it has PAK-9 innit."



Just a suggestion :P

Provided that tug wants to take part, that'd be indeed a very nice theme

However, WotL: can we send you the presets per email or shall we post them here? I was just wondering, cause if we would mail them it would be a bit more of a surprise when the pack finally is published.
