Explanation of this subforum

Post  MrToddington on Tue Jan 01, 2013 12:28 pm

This subforum is new, and some of these rules will be adjusted in the next few days depending on how well the forum goes!

This subforum is intended to replace the threads "Threadless singers" and "New Topics in Range Stuff" by giving your incomplete threads a more organised and manageable section for you to post them to.

When your threads have reached an acceptable standard (as determined by moderators/administrators), they will be moved to the main section.
The criteria for this includes:

  • A reasonable amount of notes looked over, and listed accurately.
  • Description of vocalist including past work and vocal style. Include a couple of YouTube videos or Picosong links as examples.
  • A list of any notes that are uncertain. Examples of this are notes that may belong to someone else (if they were found in the backing vocals), notes that may be processed, or issues with overtones.
  • A list of content that has not been notewatched fully. This helps others with where to look when contributing to the notewatching effort.  Smile


As for the threads that you'll start here, make sure you have at least five notes listed on your page (even if you're not sure on the pitches). The rest can be added over time.

Finally, it would help if you could add something like this to the top of your page:
Current status: UNFINISHED
or
Current status: READY FOR REVIEW
So we know when you're ready to have your thread looked at or moved over.

No threads in Range Stuff will be moved here, even though most may not meet these stricter standards. If you've got some threads that were ignored in "Threadless singers", it'd be best to post them here so they can be more easily found.

Yeah, anyone can post here, since this is replacing the Threadless section.

However, some basic discussions can still occur there.

By the way, most of Martin threads can be put here because they are actually pretty good and a lot of things can be used Very Happy

(Hey what about my Tommy Giles Jr and Damnagoras threads? I think there are material enough)

Feel free to post them here. Any threads from Threadless that didn't end up as actual threads should be posted.

How about putting a template in this thread?

Spoiler:

Voice type:
Sung range:
Total range:

Significant high notes:

A5 ()
G♯5 ()
G5 ()
F♯5 ()
F5 ()
E5 ()
E♭5 ()
D5 ()
C♯5 ()
C5 ()
B4 ()
B♭4 ()
A4 ()

Significant low notes:

G2 ()
G♯2 ()
A2 ()
B♭2 ()
B2 ()
C3 ()

.......................................................
*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.

That should ensure some minimum standards are met (basic format, usage of ♯ and ♭) by new users and for all users it's quite convenient, too.

Would it be ok to start a topic in this section of the forum with notes that aren't 100% correct? I'm currently busy searching for Paradise Lost's singer Nick Holmes low/high notes but be prepared for some mistakes. Especially in the low note area which my hearing is pretty bad. As long as people could correct me on this I'd be able to get a decent new thread for this guy.

I'm pretty new to this forum so I don't know if this has been discussed before, but wouldn't it be a good idea to add the band name the singer is the vocalist for in the OP of a singer's thread?
Seems an obvious improvement to me. I know it's an easy google job, but still that's a lot of singers to be reading up on when a few simple words in the OP would suffice.

I agree, and if they've sung in more than one notable band, both/ all their bands could be listed.

Exactly. I've spent way too much time feeding my neurosis by reading tons of useless factoids about bands I don't know or care about, because of a wild goose chase started with a range-thread Razz
