  1. I love Pokémon Snap. Played it a TON back in the day. Excited to throw apples at unsuspecting Pokémon again.
  2. I've been working from home for a little longer than most folks. First two weeks was just me and the dog, but then my wife started staying home too. I'm safe and not as worried about money as other folks, but I'm starting to feel the isolation a little more every day. When there isn't a global pandemic, I'm a fairly social person; I've got Wednesday game nights at the local Panera with pretty large group of people, and I usually get lunch with coworkers most days of the week, and I'm heading over to my Dad's house every few days. But right now the most social interaction I'm getting is brief hellos to neighbors who are taking walks and small conversations with restaurant and retail workers when I'm picking up food and other things. I'm loathe to form the habit of regular video calls with folks; it just isn't the same. I have been playing a lot of FFXIV with my wife, Arrow, and BardicKnowledge though. So that's nice.
  3. In agreement on the production. Arrangement is super cool, but this is just super squashed. Let's take it back to the mixing board. NO (resub)
  4. When you have a soundtrack release set up let us know and we can promote/retweet on OCR social media.
  5. This is not the reason. The reason is primarily for UI/UX reasons.
  6. I'm not surprised that it happened. I'm just clarifying what this thread is for. People were getting off-track by debating the decision itself. I live on this planet. I'm not clueless. I've been a member of these forums for a long time and I know how people are going to react to the decisions that we make. I'm a moderator and if I see the discussion veer off-topic, like it did here, I'm going to make a post to course-correct. Your snark is neither warranted, appreciated, nor funny. If you don't have a useful suggestion, please refrain from posting in this thread. Thanks.
  7. Folks, we're not bringing back signatures. Not as they were originally implemented, not with us hosting images as opposed to linking offsite images, not as text-only. This is a done deal. This thread is not to discuss whether or not we should bring back signatures. This thread is for people to suggest other ways we can provide avenues for self-promo.
  8. As indicated in the announcement at the top of the forums, signatures have been disabled. This thread is for constructive feedback about what we can do to fill the void with regards to self-promotion. Please be aware that djpretzel is working on revisions to the forum theme that will more clearly delineate where one person's post ends and another's begins. As always, OC ReMix is a WIP. Thanks.
  9. Keep at it and good luck. Make sure you always get outside opinions on your work as you develop your pieces. Critical feedback is an important aspect of artistic growth. You won't get better in a vacuum.
  10. You really want an honest opinion? It just doesn't sound very good. You're using really low quality samples and there's a ton of reverb in a lot of the tracks. The EQ is really skewed towards high frequencies. It sounds harsh. The arrangements are sparse and kind of boring. I had a hard time sitting down and listening to even one track all the way through. I wouldn't buy this.
