Nightcore Mix/Compilation competition

Post by HFUNightcore » August 16th, 2014, 7:50 am

Hello guys today I want to present my own competition idea!

So first we need someone like maikel or Inari. I will tell you later why I want some more famous nightcore channels to take part in this competition. First we need to choose a number of persons who could take part in this competition before we can go into deeper details for example which date everything should be uploaded on etc.

Now I will tell you what the competition is all about. Every person who takes part in this competition has to create a 1 hour nightcore compilation or mix of his most favourite nightcore songs. Then we need someone like Inari or maikel to rate the compilations or mixes. The winner is the person whose compilation is rated the best from maikel for example. The reward is that the mix gets uploaded on for example maikels channel so you can possibly get more attention from other people on your channel. or fame idk how to call it xD.

Anyways guys tell me how you like this idea and if we can make it even better! Btw maybe we can bring back maikels attention to this forum :D

Imo this is a good idea with no costs at all!

This will be fun ^^

excuse me for my bad english you can correct me if you want.

Edit:

As I said first we have to find all the persons and discuss this competition. When Inari comes online I update him about the progress I did for the contest. Before we speak about deeper details when it starts we first have to complete what I said.

Is it safe to say that he's pretty much cut all ties and connections with this forum?

It's a shame that he's not on here. I agree with the OP; I think that this forum has become well behaved and respectful enough for Maikel to come back. *is still hoping for a miracle :P*

New idea of deciding the winner, from reviewer reviewing the mixes then feature the mix on reviewer's channel to upload the mixes and let the viewers vote.

Good point are
1. Move judges means fairer result
2. Better exposure of the participants, all mixes are presented to a big audience instead of just the winner
3. Better promotion of the NU, compare to suddenly a winner is popped out from nowhere, a longer contest (few weeks to a month) with constant updates, with all details linked back to NU means more exposure of NU too

How the winner is decided
The winner is decided by the view/like ratio. For examples, entry #1 got 1000 views and 10 likes, so the like ratio is 1/100; entry #2 got 2000 views and 15 likes, so the like ratio is 1/133. 1/100 > 1/133 so entry #1 wins.

Things to discuss #A (i) How the mixes are presented
Plan A
Mixes are uploaded to makers' own channels then other channels upload a short announcement video and link to that mix every time a new mix is published.
Good thing is participants have the video on their own channels and enjoy the initial views.
Bad thing is this way may lose 2 kinds of viewers, people who don't check short announcement videos and people don't click the links.

Plan B 1
Mixes are uploaded a to a famous NU related channel (namely Inari) and other channels (namely Ninjaah, Vitacx97, etc) upload a short announcement video and link to that mix every time a new mix is published.
Good thing is this guarantees viewers to check the mixes.
Bad thing is participants lose the initial views.

Plan B 2
Mixes are uploaded to multiple famous NU related channels including Inari, Ninjaah, Vitacx97 (>15,000 subs combined), other channels upload a short announcement video and link to that mix every time a new mix is published. Viewers just need to view and like each mix once, so when they liked the one uploaded by Inari, they don't need to view and like Ninjaah's.
Good thing is this guarantees even more viewers to check the mixes.
Bad thing is participants lose the initial views, all channels need to upload all the mixes instead of just a short video, and a bit more work to calculate the like ratio.

All mixes and announcement videos should be on the spot light for at least a day before uploading anything to avoid overshadowing.
Same as above to avoid overshadowing, there should be at least two, three or four days gap between each mix.

Things to discuss #A (ii) The method of choosing how the mixes are presented
Plan A
We pick one plan and everyone follows.

Plan B
The participants choose a plan for their own.

Things to discuss #B Scale/what channels take part
Easiest 1. Get popular, actively NU related channels, Inari, Ninjaah, Vitacx97, AlwaysNightcore and emilemil1
Harder 2. Get all NU related channels (uploaders with a NU account/knowing NU), MikuMikuDJ, bafondzi, kyleaaron91, MisakuAideki, NightcoreSlax, CopyCatMaster01, etc
Even harder 3. Get all nightcore channels, HandzUpNightcore, Rinniieeee, NightcoreUploadz, DJ_Fennyluv, SchwarzeRose200, xMisterkinox, reinaXmina, Nightcorikall, etc
Hardest 4. Get Maikel

One concern is the qualities of the mixes. Imagine if Maikel agreed to help, then we provide real bad quality mixes, no only the participants would lose interest from the viewers, even Maikel's image would be damaged.

Things to discuss #C Means to calculate like ratio
This needed to be discussed only if Plan B 2 is used.
Easiest 1. Arithmetic mean, sum them up!
Harder 2. Semi-Median, ignore a X amount of the uploads or the one that have highest and lowest like ratio then use arithmetic mean.
Hardest 3. Median <- not good for this contest


Things needed before staring the contest
1. An announcement video to create a bit of hype, this needed be done after everything are settled. But again, it can turned out to be the higher the expectation, the greater the disappointment.
