Hi all,

Thanks very much you all for your replies. It's so exciting having many great people wishing to help us here !!! It's a great energy boost !

Since we are planning on creating (like Progarchives.com) teams by genre, we would like to nominate now the team already ready to work to make sure that :

  • Sub-genres and inclusives sub-genres are OK
  • Sub-genres definition are OK (should be re-written, since it's a LAST.FM import)
  • Bands/Artists + albums are in the correct sub-genre or need to be deleted from the site
  • Bands bio are OK
  • Bands missing (using our easy import tools, more about this in a forum topic to come)

So here's the list of all the 1st wave of special collaborators splitted by sub-genres at MMA:

  • Avant-garde metal: Any colour you like, progkidjoel

Job1: Work with Post/Slude team to reorg the Post/Sludge bands/CDs (we are coding a tool to easily move a bands/cds from a sub-genres to another, soon ready)

  • Black metal team: Vehemency
  • Death metal team: UMUR
  • Doom metal team: progkidjoel
  • Folk metal team: progkidjoel
  • Glam Metal team: NJCat_11

Job1: Fix that Whitesnake and Winger thing ;-)

  • Gothic metal team: ?
  • Grindcore team: UMUR
  • Industrial metal team: ?
  • Metalcore team: ?
  • Nu metal team: ?
  • Power metal team: ?
  • Symphonic metal team: ?
  • Traditional heavy metal: ?
  • Post/Sludge Metal (new sub-genre) team: Waiting

Job1: Splitting the bands/albums from Avant-Garde(/Post/Sludge) to new sub-genre Post/Sludge Metal

  • Progressive Metal team: J-Man, Any colour you like

Job1: Stole all thoses PA artists ;-)

  • Thrash metal: UMUR

General team: Windhawk, Stooge, Pekka, Matt, Colt, Metalbaswee

Job1: Define contributions to the site (reviews moderation, shouts moderation, cover, bios, discography completion, mp3s, videos, country updating, website updating)

Job2: Help UMUR ;)

We will create a new forum , only visible for special collaborators, to report all the:

  • Band/albums to move from sub-genre to another discussions
  • Participate in the sub-genres related group decisions in the forum

So we need new collaborators for the non-covered sub-genres, any suggestions or new application is welcome.

And for the Forum Administration we have a team of 3 for now:

  • Raff
  • Sleepwalker
  • Metalbaswee

They should work together to:

  • Moderate
  • Manage abuses
  • New forums ideas
  • Animate (new topics, polls)

We will create a forum (private access to Forum Admins only) to help you guys work together behind closed doors.

We will update your forum group, title and access rights in the coming hours, stay tuned and check for new forums visible in the forum index related to your new tasks.

Thanks again, it's very much appreciated, really.

Congratulation ,

Graphix and M@X

If you would like, I would be glad to join the traditional heavy metal team as well as my current job on the prog-metal team. If you need anyone else on the death metal team, I'd be glad to help there as well. If the admins need some help, I'd be willing to help as an admin as well.  Smile

Looking good! It's great to help out. By the way, is there a reason why my nickname is underlined? ;-D

Also looking forward to the import tools!

There's still a little typo, though it doesn't matter a thing! ;-D There's certainly more important stuff to take care of, haha.

I'm itching a bit too, hope the site gets back up soon!

 I have a somewhat limited knowledge of the genre, but I believe enough to help out in the gothic metal section of the site. I will gladly help with the the doom metal or black metal subgenres too.
 
UMUR, if you need any immediate help with anything, I'll do what I can Big smile
 
This is exciting guys! A new place to start fresh and bring in new ideas and people!

^ as I like to say.. and have said many times... the teams are not made of experts.... just people that enjoy and love the music and want to do something for the site and for themselves.  Quickest way to become an expert... is not simply to listen to what you personally enjoy... but have to spend hours listening to stuff that personally bores the hell out of you... yet your 'job' requires you to look past your own personal likes and dislikes.   A sense of objectivity that is sorely lacking on internet music forums.

Great - looks like I can pop in and out when I have a few minutes to spare and do some minor tweaking here and there. Adding mp3's, updating covers, stuff like that. Will probably be writing some bio's and helping out with artist additions as time goes on as well. I may help out a bit with trad HM and thrash too - time will tell. I do have my limitations though, and my main priorities will lie elsewhere, at least for the time being.

A hell of a lot of work to be done here guys and gals. If any of you know workaholics with a metal heart or soul, bring them in :-.)

Sorry for not chiming in earlier, but I just got back from work, and was busy with other things. First of all, thanks to M@x and Philippe for putting their trust in me as an Admin - I'll try to do my best to keep this place a pleasant, smoothly working environment, and not to be too heavy-handed with trolls and suchWink. I really can't wait to start this new adventureSmile!

Woo, sounds interesting, I'll get on to asap. (I've got a fair bit of work at the moment, but I'll try)


Also, I wouldn't mind taking on work with Post/Sludge teams, as that is an real area of interest for me.

Cool! I see I'm listed on the general team, and think that type of activity would be the best way I can contribute to this site.  However, I must warn you that I will be extremely busy within the next 2-3 weeks with my final exams for university approaching and a Degree Project presentation and report to finish.  The good news is that pretty much for a month after that, I've got tons of free time. 

I hope this isn't a huge problem as I would still love to contribute here. Smile

Looking over the pages, I don't see anything wrong.  What was the problem?

Whitesnake aren't a Glam metal band - they only released two albums that answer that description, while their previous output is in quite a different vein. Check my post in the Errors and Omissions section for more details, if you like.

I will gladly be a collab on any team except the Black Metal, Nu-Metal, Glam Metal, and Metalcore teams.

I would prefer Power Metal, Symphonic Metal, Doom Metal, or Death Metal.

I also suggest splitting Post Metal and Sludge into separate genres. They are not similar enough, in my opinion, and in the opinion of similar sites, to be included under one banner.

I am much more familiar with the glam metal side of Whitesnake, but I'll move them to Traditional HM as you suggested.  I'll have to check out their ealier discography as well.

Most Americans are only familiar with Whitesnake's glam metal period, but I am European, and got to know them when they played blues-influenced hard rock in pure British tradition. David Coverdale wanted to break on the US market at all costs, so he fired most of the band, got younger, more flamboyant players on board, and managed in his intent... nearly destroying his voice in the process.
