  1. VROOM - The Best of SEGA Racing ((We're still doing this))

    Edit: Okay, after further consideration and some conversation, I'm tentatively going to keep my tack on here.  I'm going to contact everyone with done or near done songs to get this into a small OCRI EP release.  No new track assignments, no updates from stuff that isn't close to finished, this is basically just a cleanup job so that the music that is mostly done can be out and we can all move on with our lives.
  2. OCRemoved is down.

    If I get the chance, I'll upload a mirror of all the stuff that used to be on OCRemoved.  Sorry to hear you had to quit the site, Douli.  It was stuff Val and I listened to on our date nights
  3. Welcome to the New Forums!

    Bring back the old forums, and the sidebar, and all the mixes that were removed!   These new forums are legit in all seriousness.
  4. 'Mystical Ninja 64 Remix Album' on hiatus

    Even if I can't contribute, I want to say how much I am behind this project. I'll see what I can muster, cause this is in my top 5 N64 soundtracks and my top 50 soundtracks ever. LOVE this.

  6. 2015 New Year Resolutions!

    1. Post on the forums more than once a month. 2. Clean my plate of all my remaining OCR stuff so I can have a full stop for a little while (need a break for real life for a bit). 3. Get to goal weight of 165 by this time next year, no other pressure physical fitness-wise. 4. Make 2015 the most active and growing musical year for me since 2010. I have hopeful plans to make and release 3-5 albums. 5. Start a family (maybe, this might be a 2016 goal).
  7. True OCR Community Website

    Talking to "some members of the community" is a vague point. How many, who, what did they say specifically, etc.? Posting a thread about it is fine, and if people chime in here, then we can actually SEE how they feel about it. It may or may not change how things are done, as is with everything about the site (DJP always has the last word on everything, even from within staff), but it shows that there's something that possibly needs addressing. As such, I'm going to disregard anyone else and just address you with my post. The reason why there are no qualifications is because, unlike how to become a posted mixer, the qualifications are in flux depending on what the staff is currently in need of. The judges recruitment is a bag all its own that the judges take into very careful consideration when there's a deficit in the amount of votes going on. Other functions of OCR staff are dependent on what the site needs, such as forum mods, album staffers, coding, etc etc. There isn't a single staffer I'm aware of that only does one role. Even if there was, it isn't some kind of standardized test or job you can make a resume for. The philosophy of "don't call us, we'll call you" isn't meant to be deliberately exclusionary, but it is meant to make sure people don't come asking for jobs. There's a lot of reasons behind that. One, if you're approached for a role and you turn it down politely without public spectacle, that's very appropriate. If you come asking for a position, and get passed over for whatever reason, it can possibly be taken personally. Another reason is that sometimes the help that is needed is already underway. We have meetings every week and discuss what the site is currently lacking or how it can be improved, and there's a whole checklist of ongoing staff projects that we keep tabs on, from site redesigns to judge recruitment to workshop changes to forum reorg to whatever we can think of that the site could use. That is also why there's a Feedback section where people can go and post about their ideas for site improvements. It's not there just to take up space on the forums As for time in the community, it varies, just like everything else. Sometimes staff is even brought in from OUTSIDE the community for one reason or another. It could be due to specialized skills, for example. Community membership and participation does add to exposure (we don't know your skills if you don't post at all, so you can't expect to be approached for judge tryouts if you have a 0 postcount ), but its not the be-all end-all. If you do what you are passionate about within the community, such as trying to organize things like compos or direct an album, or give a lot of consistent, quality feedback in the workshop area, then staff might contact you if there's a need in the area you're good at. That's about as solid as things can get That's the reason why staff can't give consistent answers: it's not a static set of criteria. It's not a secret club. Everyone is a volunteer, and there's a lot of work that needs to be done, and gets done. Being staff is more of a responsibility than anything else. Its not a free ride, or a fraternity/sorority. Granted sometimes we just chit chat about normal things since we become very good friends inevitably because of the time we spend working with each other on OCR stuff, but that adds to the chemistry of the work and is one of the better benefits of having to do all these things with our spare time. We're all ears for suggestions about any other roles that are missing, jobs that aren't being done properly, and any area of improvement. We will respond appropriately and, if necessary, explain why some things are they way they are, or why they can't be different, or why you're suggestions can be implemented and how. In short, no, we can't make a list of what is needed to be on OCR Staff.
  8. Wait...I know this guy... Also yes that is totally me on Beth's track and I'm deeply sorry to anyone who has to listen to it
  9. I was just talking about doing something from Phoenix Wright. I was thinking Andrew could retool his "Holiday with Mia Fey" for live performance.
  10. OCAD comes back tomorrow night. 8PM. Ready your panties.
  11. OC ReMix @ Apex 2014!

    Apparently, I'm going. Only be there Saturday though.
  12. Shaq Fu 2: It is actually happening.

    Where is my Homer Simpson "OH MY GOD" Tramopoline reaction youtube?! WHERE IS IT?!
  13. I looked into that. Its a sad thing to say that the most affordable event hall in the area that would suit our needs is catered by Wolfgang-motherfucking-Puck. I would say we could do one IN the convention center except with the capacity of magfest this year, I'm pretty sure they're going to rent every room there next year (which I'm pretty sure they also did this year). Also, getting away from the gaylord means that you actually can keep it pretty much OCR-only and not have random people coming in and crashing the party, taking the food without paying, etc etc. Not that this is some kind of exclusivity thing but I really would like to keep it just OCR and OCR-related peoples (and their plus ones or whatever).
  14. Being 10 minutes from the Gaylord itself is a much better idea because most folks already plan for transportation to/from the airport. The closer to the gaylord the easier it is for people to head there right after checkout time. If, like, 100 OCR folks come its much easier to run rides on a ten minute interval than a 20-40 minute interval.
  15. This will get buried for sure but since everyone right now is riding high off of the end of this MAG and starting to think about travel plans for next MAG, it would be best to bring it up now. For the last couple of years, we've been doing an impromptu brunch post-MAG on the Sunday that it ends. We've done it at Busboys and Poets for a while, and each year it has gotten harder and harder to fit everyone and coordinate it. I didn't even get a chance to go this year but I'm pretty sure we would have occupied nearly half the entire restaurant if we were all there at the same time. And its a hassle getting individual checks and waiting a very long time for food and... yeah, there's a lot of problems that crop up once the group reaches critical capacity. I swear the amount of OCR folk that showed up doubled this year. So, with that in mind, I am working with a few people to arrange for a REAL post-MAG OCR brunch in the area near National Harbor next year. We would likely need RSVP and a small amount of money to go towards catering and rental space costs (hopefully nothing more than $5 or $10) but here's all the info I have right now: * Currently looking at renting hall space at the American Legion hall in Temple Hills, which is about 10 minutes away from the Gaylord by car. * We would be getting food catered in, and accommodating accordingly as best we can to folks with various dietary restrictions. Banquet-style with big tables * We would be requesting space for people to securely keep their luggage, so that folks who have flights that afternoon and evening can go straight to the airport from the brunch if the times work out. * Video game and musical entertainment would definitely be provided. BY members of the community, FOR members of the community. * Space would likely be available starting at around noon on Sunday and probably going into early evening (depends on rental rate cost). Benefits: * Nobody's house gets crashed or overwhelmed or has to turn people away due to not having any more room (yes, I am speaking from past experience, though this year nothing really happened and it was all quite manageable). * Nobody needs to cook, nobody needs to clean! * Nobody has to wait up to an hour or two or three to get fed. * Tables and seating aren't limited and nobody has to do astronomical calculations to divide the check and account for tipping. * VIDEO GAMES! * MUSIC! * VIDEO GAME MUSIC! * Good place to go to bum around while waiting for travel home to begin. * We can get a for-real nobody-left-out picture of as many attending members of OCR as possible. * The world-record for OCR group hug. (probably). * The OCR guitar (which all posted OC ReMixers can sign) can finally get some new love on it. * Flood the place with our tears as everyone says their goodbyes. All that being said, I definitely need to gauge interest to see who would want to come. Bringing it up now so people can also see if they can arrange their travel plans to allow them to go to this. Also any other good ideas like this I would love to hear.
