So What’s the Grand Plan Here?

October 12th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

So far things have been going okay – not great, not terrible. Since adopting this update format, there have been some encouraging moments along with more than a few disheartening moments, but i’ve decided not to let it bother me. I’ll keep going until at least the end of the year before i take a serious look at the numbers to determine whether this is worth continuing.

For those of you asking for a schedule, the tentative plan is to post a technical/combo article every Tuesday and a strategy article every Saturday, with a new screenshot thrown in every Thursday. On Sundays i’ll highlight a particularly cool combo video released recently (by someone else). The rest of the week will vary.

Regarding the layout, here’s how i see it playing out. At some point someone will call it ugly and several people will nod silently, including me. Then a brave soul will emerge from the nodding masses and offer to help me make it less ugly. I’ll do what he/she says, and either make everyone happy or lose everything to hackage.

For those of you asking how you can help, there’s really not much to be done apart from posting comments when you have something to say or a question to ask. There are obvious benefits to having some discussion to go along with these topics because there’s always more to examine, and someone always says something interesting that i hadn’t considered. At the same time, i know that most people who see something cool here will want to discuss it with their friends first, so the SRK people will go back to SRK, etc. I’m not going to bother trying to fight that.

Like i mentioned at the beginning, if it seems like people are enjoying this stuff and if i can find a way to earn minimum wage based on the hours i spend producing content, i’ll gladly keep doing it indefinitely.

    Maybe you should bump your SRK thread everytime you post an article, though I recall you saying you didn’t like to do that or something.

    Anyways I’ve been enjoying the posts so far. Keep it up dude.

    Oh btw I might have an idea for a screenshot, I’ll send you a PM or something.

    Yeah i’d rather leave that SRK thread alone except when i’ve posted something on sh/classic. Otherwise i’ll be bumping it four times a week and some people might take it the wrong way. Though it’d probably be a good idea to post links to specific articles in relevant threads.

    Kareeeeem: Is this what you had in mind?

    It’s pretty easy to take screenshots, by the way. Every emulator lets you do it with one button and you can even pause emulation beforehand. Most emulators let you pause and advance frame by frame too, which makes it a lot easier to set things up.

    Once you have an idea of what you want, you’re 2/3 of the way there.

    Yup that’s exactly what I had in mind, good stuff!

    And yea it’s just that my computer sucks really bad and even simple emus don’t run all that well. I might try out some stuff on my dads computer. I didn’t know emus had all those options.

    I´m using the screenshot as my avatar on the dutch community forums drakenslag.com.

    Sweet, glad you like it dude. Had to use s.HK against LK upball because the other versions kept hitting each other on the way up or flipping out of sync.

    Thanks for using it as your av too. Hopefully some of the people who see it will find their way here and enjoy the other screenshots too. I remember ZenFire was involved in starting Drakenslag but i haven’t heard from him in a while.
