Well here's the thing... for 2 years, I've had a lot of people who were like "Yeah cool, that's cool sounding, I'll do it!" and then they don't. And then those who DO do it are left thinking "Gee, I wonder when the project is actually gonna get finished." and it just goes around and around in circles.
I'm just really dissapointed that now that we have an FTP to use, and poeple can easily get their vids to me, they are still not uploading their vids, even though they are done. The FTP has been up since the 4th of October or so, and I've hat a grand total of 2 videos uploaded to the server, and no sign of anyone else giving a damn. Most people haven't even emailed me for the username and password.
And then, even supposing all the finished tracks get uploaded and we get tha tout of the way, new track requests will have to be filled and completed, and such... but again, I've not recieved but one email and a couple IM's on AOL.
OK, now, I'm not expecting my mailbox to overflow with requests, and I'm not expecting all the editors who have finished their vids to be rushing to upload their finished AMVs, but you know, there haven't even been enough of those events happening to call it a handful. More like a scattered few incidents.
If you don't see why this is discouraging, something is wrong.
And on top of that, I was mega-depressed last night about an issue I won't even bring up because I ended up making a total ass of myself last night/earlier today, and just figured "You know what, this is so ridiculous, since this is supposed to be fun, but instead, I'm beating myself up over it."
That being said, do you really think I should wait until May? I mean, I'm fairly easy to sway one way or the other.. call me flakey, I guess... but honestly, when I look ahead, I just don't see the project even being done come May. Even if I do release a shortened tracklist. Even if I do set the deadline and get on editors' asses on an individual basis... it just seems like there's not enough interest...
..And yet, every time I bring up the subject of the project, people say it sounds fun.
So I dunno what to think.
What do you all think?
Get a life? I'm a gamer! I have lots of lives!
