I don't know about you guys, but for SotW, I want every single fucking fact about the song in that post. This is a cool opportunity to learn about every song, one song at a time. The first SotW posts from long ago, they really sucked. They didn't have anything interesting about them, they were missing info, and they just sucked. I'm just worried with different people writing for different songs, that there will be no standard. There could be an older fan that does an excellent post with tons of facts and meaning, or a newer fan that doesn't know their facts, doesn't think deep into the meaning, or just leaves stuff out. Or the other way around. I think it should be just 1-3 people writing posts for every song.

Well then, when one person posts the OP and you feel like something is missing, you can have the joy of posting anything you feel they may have missed, underneath.

You know that is the reason why we ask people to apply. We won't pick people on random, but we will pick someone who seems to know what they are talking about in their application. So if you feel like you have a lot to say about the songs that will be next(Longview or American Eulogy for now), we will love to take your application and if it's great you might get the honor of posting the final OP for the song

Then apply to write one.

Also, we do screen to make sure people aren't writing "Good Riddance is teh greatest song EVAR kthxbye"...

Well the standard was pretty well laid out in the opening post and as it has to be submitted to the mods, then I anticipate that any poor reviews should be picked up at that stage. I personally look forward to newer members doing some research and maybe enlightening me on a different interpretation of an older song. I look forward to their fresh ideas. I think GD songs belong to all this community and should not just be limited to 1- 3 people picking them and writing posts for every song.

Awesome. You can send a message to me and Ben where you've written the first paragraph and a live video of the song by Sunday for Longview and the week after that for American Eulogy. Maybe you get to write the whole OP and post it! :)

Thanks!

(1000 Hours?!?) :lol:

Sure, we'll add it soon
