Wanted to start this topic to gather some opinions about how to increase the community life on gametabs.
Now that the website has been stabilized and that we do not fear the spam bots ruining the server again
For now, @Avaruussaha is dealing with the original tune contest, which is a long Gametabs tradition, and he is doing a great job at it, and we are trying to share it outside to bring some new people.
I also hope with the "old tab submission" system back that more ppl will start to make tabs again.
If some of you make recordings, even if it's not top quality, don't hesitate to submit those too to make that section live and leave comments and ratings on other people's entries =)
We do have a facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/gametabs.net/) that i mostly use to advertise the contests and the Pixel Mixers album release (for the ones who do not know, Pixel Mixers is a VGM community that was created with bunch of gametabs members when we had to "move away" because of the website being down all the time).
So maybe if you have some nice idea of how i could use the FB page to motivate more ppl to join or participate to Gametabs community life, let me know
Once upon a time i started organizing VGM Tribute albums on here, it worked kinda well (we did FFVII, Zelda, NES, Boss Battle Themes and FFVIII). I do not feel like doing it again (cause i already do it for Pixel Mixers) but if someone would like to do it, and try to make a new "Gametabs Tribute Album" i'll do my best to help!
We also had Cover/Arrangements contests every month at some point, with a different theme, that could be an idea!
I'm also open to any other proposition.
We do not have a twitter account, might be worth to try to create one, we could use it to share the new tabs and some news, what do you think?
Anyway, hope that some of you will have some cool ideas =)
