Hey guys,

As most of you should know by now, I got promoted to media mod to help look after the download section here on GDC and make it better. Ros (Shadowiegirl), Blu and Matt (monkeyman) spent a lot of time in the section making it what it is today but I think its time for a upgrade to help make it even better after all these years.

I already have quite a few ideas for the section that I will be bringing to your attention at a later date but for now I want to hear what you think of the section and how we can make it better. I honestly don't care if you say the section is crap as long as you can justify why you think so and how we can improve it. If you aren't in the section very often or not at all then what can we do to make you wanna go in there more? I'm open to any and all ideas

Some please say what you feel about it and we will do what we can to fix it.
Thanks :)

It would be nice if you added some lossless stuff too, such as some of the more popular dvd's like Live Without Warning, World Stage, Storytellers. Because, most everything is low res highly compressed stuff, that does not look all that good. That's just what I would do. http://www.greendaycommunity.org/public/...

I already have plans for that stuff, me, Andres and Tony just wanna sort out all the stuff we are gonna do before we start working on it :)

One of the great things about the Downloads section was the presence of dedicated mods who were active and responsive to people's requests - that's what kept it current and alive and also made it a place to discover stuff. I'm looking forward to the new ideas you're gonna bring to it, and I feel like just the presence of someone who's committed and eager will give it back that buzz that's been missing. :)

Maybe update some of the screenshots? Some of them aren't links anymore, and just take you to the image of the camera.

^ I was about to say the same thing. :) That helps a lot if you're looking for an specific video.

Also add other vids that I haven't seen on the thread and I found on youtube, I can't remember now, but then I can post some of the names.
Fix the links that are momentarily broken =/
And I had a problem with some vids that I can't see because of this "protected mode" and Shadowiegirl helped me, but turns out that I still can't watch them, (and there's one I like very much of the Honorary Degree from MTV) :(
- I was going to say that -maybe- add the official videos from the Foxboro Hot Tubs, but probably you're going to say no because they were leaked and never been presented officially by the band. Well, they're on youtube, so why not? <--I just thought

Just seeing the download links section kept updated and broken links etc in it fixed would do me. It would be great to see all the screenshots and setlists that unfortunately disappeared after the update replaced too, at some point anyway. Basically I think the download links section is brilliant so I'll be very happy to see it brought up to date and maintained. Anything else is a bonus! Great to hear you have some ideas, I'll be looking forward to hearing/seeing what you have in mind.

Thanks guys, most of these ideas have already been thought of as they are the fairly obvious things to do. I wanna hear some ideas you can think of to help make the section more fresh and better looking. We wanna a rating system in there but we are still thinking about how we could.

A rating system would be great. Not sure if we have the same idea, but maybe just have a picture of a number of stars for quality? Not that we would rate, but you? Kinda like they do in record store for old vinyls? 1/5 would be shitty quality, whereas 5/5 would be 1080p or something? Not sure if that's what you were thinking...

i don't know if this is how it is or someone said it, but maybe have people PM or have something to submit video and have you guys organize it so it's not just a mess of links

Even though it is already very user-friendly, i would suggest each thread having a very organized list of links for downloads in the beginning. I'm really not complaining though- It looks great!

(Congrats Liam :dance: )

I try to do that but as it is I don't have every single video in there, thats where Shadowiegirl is trying to help out where she can. Also I don't have time to go through every so often and make sure EVER link is working, thats why we have threads to report that type of stuff

I haven't spent a great deal of time in the downloads forum, so i probably can't offer the best suggestions at the moment, but i'd say 'organisation' is the key word. Because there's so much information, it can seem like a bit of a minefield. If we can find some ways to make it more user friendly, i think that will be a big plus.

See the link Liam posted. Have you ever looked in the vault? It's not a mess of links. It's well organized. Shadowiegirl and I put a hell of a lot of time into it.

There shouldn't be invalid links. If there are (reality is they do happen), you have to report them. There are hundreds of links in the vault and no one can keep an eye on all of them all the time. There should be a thread to report the links in. Or send a PM to Shadowiegirl and she can fix them. I would fix them, but I don't usually have access to my files anymore.

Sounds like she just didn't know about the links section. And the problem was those things weren't being maintained for a long time. There wasn't a media mod so there was no one to keep fixing the broken links when they were reported or to update the links section (although of course Roz and other people still helped out loads), so the links section isn't up to date. That's why people are posting about these things. But of course that's exactly the reason a media mod's been appointed so no need to worry about it now.
