Hello. I provided Nightmare with my Silent Hill chart that I did first on my customs thread, and it was pretty much left in tact for that song; with the addition of keys, So if I could get an author credit on that one, it would be awesome, as 3 of the 4 charts were pretty much left intact. And as well as possibly a link to my thread where all my other video customs are in the main blog post, that would be swell. I don't remember seeing anyone doing video game song customs in this capacity until I really started doing it with the volume I do it in, I think a mention on where to go to get more wouldn't be too ridiculous to ask
This touches on larger issues with authoring credits that we've been avoiding. I'll talk about this in public rather than PM for transparency's sake. Before I say anything else, I want to point out that you were (and are) credited in the same place we've been crediting "secondary" authors -- below the download link in the visualizer.
The question here is what defines a "secondary" author. Traditionally, we give "primary" credit -- the name(s) listed at the top of the blog post and in the DB -- to authors that were directly involved in the C3 part of the process. This means playtesting, reductions, and all of the other stuff that makes a song meet our standards. Most of the time, a secondary author is someone who did an X-only chart for a single instrument, and it was adapted into a full song. In those instances, I intend to continue the current method of attribution.
In this case, though, you did an absolute shitload of the work for this song. I'm prepared to attribute it to "mrmet2087 and Nightmare Lyre" if NL is OK with that. This part of the conversation should move to PM or Skype, so I'll talk to you guys about it there.
Attribution is tricky, and if I say "we" did something, that's kind of a misnomer. This isn't on Nemo or farottone or anyone else -- if something's wrong on the blog or the DB, it's on me. I apologize to anyone else who feels they haven't gotten enough credit, and I hope we can make it right.
As for the link, though, that's not something we do in quite the way you're describing. We'd resurrect the now-ancient "Community Spotlight" feature and link to your thread with a one- or two-sentence blurb about it. Which...actually is pretty much what you describe.
Would you like that to be retroactively added to this blog post, or added fresh to next week's blog post?
