just wants black and white rules on what goes were so mods lives are easier. If it is clearly defined, stuff gets moved/deleted. Those are the rules. End of story.

What would constitute getting your contract cancelled though? I'd like some clarification on that if you don't mind. I mean I understand "drifting too far from involving IDMf members" but you'd have to make some black / white guidelines for that too so if a particular project wishes to not have their contra t cancelled they can make damn sure they stay well within said black / white guidelines.


i appreciate why you have your concerns RFJ, at this point though could we try to steer clear of our personal involvements and try deal with the matter at hand. AE isn't going to be chucked out of the forum n any shape or form if that's your worry, at worst it will have to post in a different area and as such refer to relic's post above yours

Re: The ultimate IDMf Community project?

I'd take the Community projects out of the LB for a start.
Make that it's own section, then within that have an IDMf and non-IDMf section.

I do think it will make the community section a less used place unless there are some official projects started by mods with the promise of an official release or something like that.


the word community implies to me that its stuff started out of and for the community - the one here.

and we're currently talking about including an area for "outside" stuff to be hyped and talked about , involve people with etc, rather than shifting it all to one place alone. I agree members releases is no place for such a thing, other than any resulting release

Well that makes sense. As long as there is a section for something successful like AEP to go in. Although I do rather dislike the hype name too.

Re: The ultimate IDMf Community project?

I don't really like the idea of saying that community projects are only ones that are run by IDMf for IDMf. To my view, that's far more exclusive and punitive than a high post count. And the point of a high post count isn't to exclude, it's just to reduce the amount of crappy submissions. The logic being that we should be able to trust people in this group to not post stupid shit, while encouraging newer members to get in touch with their people who have already posted something similar to their project for help getting it off the ground. I'm sure if Auto, or Relic, RFJ, lolirl et al who have been overseeing various projects would be able to help newer members in this way. I know I would.

My reasoning for saying that community projects must be run exclusively by IDMf is that this goes against the way every community project I've worked on in the REAL community. In reality, when I work on a project that is resourced by Melbourne City Council, they aren't running the show, they're making their resources available so that we can run the show.

One year for Melbourne Music Week we did Where?House which was a project where we took a derelict building in the city and turned it into a day market, workshop space and a nighttime concert space. Melbourne City Council provided us access, OH&S consulting, volunteers. All they did was provide the infrastructure and funding to facilitate the project. Beyond ensuring that we observed the law and made the space available for a couple of events, there was very little input on their part. Our project was not representative of the Melbourne City Council. It was representative of the community which the council oversees. That's my definition of a community project. It's a project which is dependent on the community at large to exist.

RFJ and relic have been more than honest in saying that a large part of their AEP project's success is down to the support and involvement of the IDMf community. How are their competitions any less relevant to the IDMf community than in-house ones? Or is it just that their contributions in community projects are better organised and presented to the audience, thus garnering more participation?

Sure, maybe it's time we close their thread introducing AEP as they're now well established. Maybe when time-based competition, submission or challenge projects conclude, their threads should be closed after a grace period for post project discussion. And then the conversation could be redirected to the relevant thread in the members release section or wherever.

Or maybe it's time that ongoing and successful projects borne out of IDMf are given a section of their own to facilitate their work. I keep thinking of the IDMf net label section on the front page and reckon it would be great to change the header to net label and add an AEP section under the IDMf net label page, or maybe we put successful projects as their own sub-forums of the community projects section.

I don't know, but I feel any "rules" we make should be aimed at encouraging more of these types of activities on the forum and should provide facilities for that.

so yeah, what lug said
No problem (if I ever get an overwhelming response from the community, I will certainly submit it to the netlabel (that's only happened once, though)). It looks like everybody's still discussing exactly what should go down.

I like the idea of having an area to post outside projects that's not the Listening Booth, but I'll leave it up to you guys to figure out where to put it.

And it's been said a million times, but.........banners. (if possible)

But is this really necessary? I mean, I agree that community projects should be its own section, but maybe not separated. Can you have a quick look at the threads in the Community Projects section and (excluding the AEP ones) tell me what the ratio is of IDMf to non-IDMf projects is? I'm asking because I don't know and I know that you are involved in the area. Are there even enough threads to warrant a split at this stage?

As for what is or isn't a community project, if it's actively run within IDMF (submissions/conversation/hype/whatever) then isn't that enough? Does it really need to have the IDMf logo on it and if it doesn't, can't you just photoshop one on for your personal feels

i think the difference for me is that the white nose thing is exclusively done for IDMf members alone, douche factor the same, one day challenge etc etc
its not that it needs a badge per se, more that for clarification the area certainly needs defining of what goes in there. i don't think it's ok really to define a project that is open to anyone and is promoted elsewhere with no intention of being solely for the improvement of IDMf members to be in the community projects area.
In your council analogy, sure they had f all to do with the actual project. within the community though the council facilitated the appropriate space for the appropriate activity. and hopefully we can define the appropriate space for things here

Obviously I'm far too entrenched to reply to the bulk of your post there but just wanted to say...

Yes I'd be down to help with any community projects, in any capacity, or assist in any way in the running of the community projects sub forum(s) of IDMf, regardless of where my own project winds up living.

i like the rules as they are right now, i think we need a DIY section for DIY builds with a circuit bending sub forum and a schematics sub forum. there are a fair few people here who do DIY stuff.
and i think i should have mod privileges

discuss/suggest etc below
i think projects that are open for anyone to join should go here. not collabs with only a couple of people, it should have to be open all the time for anyone to join in, even halfway through the project (where possible)
i think everyone should be able to post here.
maybe we could have a sub forum for collabs with only a couple of people? still open for anyone to post and start projects.

I've gone through the thread, but some might might have skipped some bits, so can you add a bit more info about what the "hype" section would be?
Maybe in the poll question or in the first post
