Adding onto the web trends that Bashar mentioned, the internet itself has long sense moved away from forums as a major way of communication. Sites like facebook have replaced both AIM/MSN/IRC and forums as ways people connect and communicate with one another. It's not that the org is a dying trend, the foundation which is relies on is a dying trend and unless it adapts (the org facebook and twitter help) it will continue to dwindle.

I'd personally prefer they died than get sucked into proprietary formats not suited to searching or finding info years down the line unless you happen to be an advertiser or a data mining organization.

There;s no real intention of helping other editors, to help improve videos, so I decided to move out to amvnews since I have found that the community there helps more than the org, so that the last proyects have received feedback mainly from the news, rather than the org. And that's the reason of my decision.

If I comment a video here, it's because I previously watched it in youtube or other sites. It doesn't matter how much the org could promote about the techncial aspect of amv making: If there's no real help here, then it's useless.

I guess I'm not the only one with this thought: I have noticed in the newbies, intention and hope to improve and they trust this site as a possible solution, but when taking part here, you see you will have to take your time to find the people that could be a help. And in which case, there aren't much, just a few ones



Yes I really believe the org has just been dead, I am an older amv editor been on here since 2005. and I must say since after 2009-2010? Im not sure where the feedback stopped, but now that I just put 2 videos up this year, I barely got any feedback at all. People used to give out opinions and after awhile since the quick comments started everyone stopped doing the opinons. I think it is also laziness that has started people are lazy to do the opinions.

The org is pretty much dead, stopped coming here awhile ago, I Noticed how biased the org is when it comes down to replying to a random editor, or a very well known popular editor. Who gets the most replies? That's an easy answer. Not to menton how friend biased the org is now too. Org needs a new setup.

Sounds naive but humm, hope it works because I talked to him a lot
about this ~

I know this bastard always wanted the power to re-create such an awesome site

Can you give us links of sites he has created? If he's doing an awesome job, then why not?

I don't have works of him and I know he works as a programmer all day..
well something like that xD He made an alternative model for a forum about
AMV's called Zona Amv in the past, I don't know if he has the model yet or if he
finished it. But is not 100% sure, so let's wait until I convince him. I think he's
a good option. He made good amv's/gmv's in the past. I know he's interested or he could try.
So, yep, that's I'm posting this crap here. I believe it could work.

Sorry for triple posting (I can't edit dammit).
I had response but is highly necessary to talk with administrators
or someone of the staff to discuss about this and what he can and he cannot do ~

...and that is the level at which the last redesign attempt got stalled. It's not getting someone to do redesign the website that's the problem.

Activity on here comes and goes, and as I mentioned on this thread before, it is mostly because the way users communicate had changed over the years. Yes known editors get more replies, yes friends comment on their other friends videos, but that is true in every online community. That said, it's not uncommon for an unknown editor that makes an amazingly epic video to get a lot of comments, but the frequency of those types of videos getting released is low. As for the org being biased, people are biased towards things they like, and friends tend to have similar interests, therefore it's quite common for the active users that are friends to be biased towards certain things they like.

If you want more comments either:
(a) Make lots of friends that are active on the org
or
(b) Make amazingly epic videos that people won't ignore
