What Should YAnime Become?
« on: August 27, 2008, 11:15:05 PM »
With only four or so of the same people posting in the last few months, I'm hoping to get a bit more participation by asking everyone (even lurkers) what YAnime should become.

I just hate having a dead site like this without a real purpose. There isn't really a community posting, the scanlation part is dead without any translators, and I just can't think of what to try to revive things.

So, please give some suggestions. I'm open to most anything as long as it fits the domain name. Of course, if one of those lurkers happens to be a translator, I'd be happy to start scanlation again. I'd really love to pick up Alto, which it seems has stalled and won't be continued.

Well making part of the site into a "users' reviews" submission might be kinda cool. Where people can submit their own reviews on anime, as long of course, as it follows some sort of guideline in writing.

But then again something like that by itself probably wouldn't work very long, so we need to attach it to something else.

Hmmm I know what we need is a war  ;D
the last time we had a large influx of members was when we started a war with Jurian towers and we got a lot of members and even ended up with a type of alliance, so maybe if you find another site that is doing scanlations and offer to help them distribute it on yanime so they can save some bandwidth and get more hits on search engines.

Urg, I don't really have any idea.  And I haven't been on much for the past few weeks because of a dead computer.

While it is nice, I just don't have the transfer to spare on that idea. The site is on my personal server right now because it is so low traffic. I'd like to liven this place up, but without shooting bandwidth usage through the roof.

Wouldn't the bandwith usage shoot up either way if this place livens up again?

What about a podcast? Yanime podcast that a few of us can put together. We use another uploading site to upload the podcast to or whatever is used for it so the server doesn't get sucked of bandwith.

Sure, but a download location is a sure way to get an instant problem, while some healthy growth could allow for revenue from donations and/or advertisements (I'm really hesitant to do that part) could pay for the growth.

What would it be on?

What would it be on?

Well it could be on anything. I used to run a radio show that just ran music and I used to subscribe to a podcast with a 5 dollar premium donation in which I got to listen to the live shows on ventrilo while they recorded it.

There's many ways we can do this. Brainstorming the ideas would help on what we could run on the podcast. What also could help in the end, if we get a auidence for this we might end up getting a translator for the scanlation side in the end. So it could benefit the group and get it started again.

Ideas on what we could run?

Thats the question. we would have to come up with topics that are both fresh and interesting and then do some advertising.
I mean we could run Anime music but that only goes so far. :P

Well maybe on could be a voice actor stuido segment. Get a group of friends together and either re-act out famous scenes in a humorous manner with the script slightly changed, or make alternate endings to animes with whole new scripts. Of course that would require some script writers.

Hell we could even do a deep discussion segment on specific anime and/or video games. This segment is where 2 or more people would get together (most likely on ventrilo), and discuss in depth specific animes and their meanings. Anime is a very psychological thing. Deals with real life affairs all the time, its just trying to understand it thats the interesting part.

My idea is the same as tenchisama that we would offer help to distribute manga from a scanslation group and about the scriptwriting im gonna ask kite if he will help me or n0t cuz i cant do it alone if he agrees then we will be the writers if its possible and were still amatuers but im g0nna do my best
