The Org Redesign - Goals...

Postby Pwolf » Tue Nov 02, 2010 10:27 pm

Since the org staff wants to wait to gather ideas in an organized manner, I've decided to take it upon myself to create what I think are the necessary threads to get the job done. I don't want to wait until the coding is done before we know what the website will look like and function. Lets start now.

I decided to start a new thread because this has come up several times in the other threads I made. What do we want the org to represent? What are our goals, what do we want to achieve in the end? I think we need to figure this out before any major changes are going to happen (if any at all).

Go.

As I see it our goals should be:

1) Make it easier to find videos.
2) Make it easier to download videos.
3) Make it easier to participate in the forums.
4) Make it easier to go from viewer -> editor.

I agree with Kionon's list, but I would replace his 2nd point with
"make it easier to watch videos".

This encompasses the whole downloading aspect, but also acknowledges that today, people don't necessarily want to download something to watch it. They just want to watch immediately.

- Make it easier to donate

Oh yea, forgot to add..

Hi there,

This is Kris (aka. Phade) and I would like to welcome you to http://www.AnimeMusicVideos.org. My goal with this web site is to create a place where people who enjoy and create anime music videos can get together, share ideas, learn from one another, and ultimately have everyone creating and enjoying better videos.


This is the goal from the man himself. I think we should keep this in mind. He doesn't mention a catalog, and he doesn't mention editors and viewers as separate people but as one in the same. The goal is to create a community where we can learn from each other, editor or not, to become better. A good goal IMO.

I would make sure that newer members know that they CAN download it, and that we ENCOURAGE this. Let's face it, preview sucks for many videos, and even YouTube is not capable of producing how we as creators wish our videos to be watched. I'm all for improving preview, but I also believe that we should make sure that new users realise that unlike other media sites, we want them to download our videos, and it should be easy for them to do so.

Also, regarding Pwolf's post, this is in the site's metadata which is stuff Google uses to provide a description of the org in the search results for "amv".
Site metadata wrote:This community is dedicated to the creation, discussion, and general enjoyment of fan-made anime music videos.

Personally, I don't like the drop-down list on the right hand side of the interface. Should re-organize that, just a personal suggestion.

I think a good goal would be easier access to the videos :3 but I think that was already mentioned :P

Give people who are not registered on the org a way to watch a video. You can still demand a registration for downloading the vids.
