What kind of content should GDA focus on

49 posts in this topic

Posted

While updating old content is important, and maybe could be something going on in the background, is it really gonna draw new visitors to the site? Probably not. But definitely something to get people involved. How about that cover a song thing you started a year or two back? Where you chose a song and we accept and vote on recordings for the drum parts, bass parts, guitar parts and vocal parts of the song and it all gets mixed together and put up for download. I liked the idea last time and it is a community-orientated project which could work well.

I voted for quizzes :) if you mean a quiz/ riddle like GDA had a while ago, the "Hollywood is dead and gone" one. I really loved that riddle, it was so much fun :D But I'd like an emphasis on contests and fan-made stuff as well :) musical covers & fan art, you know.

I really loved that riddle thing GDA did a while back and I know I'm not the only one.

Little interactive stuff like that is very fun.

This :wub:

Editorials, definitely. They're always very interesting. I'd even be up for writing a few myself if they'd be accepted. I actually did one a while back for uni discussing their influences, it was quite in depth.

Also, how about user submitted reviews? I know it'd rely on people bothering to participate, but if they did it could be really interesting.

Also, I know it'd probably be a massive job, but I'd like a more organised and in depth photo section, if possible.

I loved the riddle contest too! It was so much fun and I think the best contest on GDA ever, because it didn't take any particular talent, it was more accessible to everyone but still very challenging!

BTW Andres, I'm still waiting for the vinyl to arrive... :whistle

I voted for updating old content (for example the tabs and lyrics sections) but I wanted to vote for quizzes, editorials and contests too. :P

The tab section actually isn't old, but I'd love for that to be updated.

Oh, Andres... :lol:

Oh yes, I know it's not... But that's what I immediately thought about because my sister was looking for tabs and said there were only iUno! songs available. And well, in the future that section will be older than it is now so. :lol:

It wasn't on the list, but lets make a GDA band and make a new Green Day album while we wait.

Yeah it's been a long time. Definitely do need some new stuff.

What every happened to the "What the fuck does 'ok' stand for?" sticker? I loved that idea and would happily buy one.

Writing and producing more songs. I know it sounds obvious, but new material is essential, plus I'd love to hear something new.

It says GDA (as in the website), not Green Day :P

I voted for editorials, but I think the idea of updating/reminding people of older content, especially in these anniversary years, isn't a bad idea either, in a "Come see what people thought back in the day!" kind of way. It's only a shame we don't have access to the board posts from more than a few years ago!

It's like looking at an old person sitting in a rocking chair.
