    Free song? Did you guys already choose an optional song somewhere? O.o

    I'm still not 100% completely sure what mylists are other than being a playlist. Other people (if the mylist setting is set so) can add their own videos there, right? Because I wish YouTube playlists could do that so we wouldn't have to find someone to compile them manually.

    And since 81% of the current votes say that someone should compile them, does anyone want to volunteer? I can't access YouTube and Nico at school despite having the opportunity to be frequently online.

    Oh no, I meant free song as in the free-to-choose song! Not the one-for-all song!

    Yes, you can have public mylists. I would offer myself to compile all of the songs, as long as people hit me up with their links!

    After some research on the japanese tuning festival, I would propose to use

    海外組調声晒し祭り16夏_歌

    as the tag for the NND videos. It has 海外組 overseas group to show that it was initiated by the overseas part of the community, 調声晒し祭り for tuning festival, 16夏 for summer 2016 (since I guess we could hold another one in winter lol) and _歌 at the end to specifically tag the songs

    I wanted the festival to last all year though OTL
    Will I ever have time to upload a tuning video by August? /shot
    Then again, having two tuning festivals a year could have a "refresh" period in between.

    By the way, is there anyone who would want to volunteer to help make the introductory video?

    depends on what you need. if it's got to be a synthesized-voice introductory video, that's niche. but i'm pretty sure most people have no trouble whipping up some sort of announcement video; speech over a static image, w/e. if you tell me what to say i can record a video quickly on the phone and get it put up (better than nothing,) but at that point, what's to stop you from just making it yourself?

    that said, my offer stands >_>

    @Info is already doing the Talkloid, actually!

    I'm from the other side of the globe, thus I have school and don't have the time >.<

    then, I'm not sure I understand what you're asking.
    the person who wants to volunteer to help make the intro video is Info, correct? problem solved?

    She's only doing the talkloid part of the video - the audio.
    The video itself, no one as the volunteers have yet to confirm whether they want to make it or not.

    I feel like if this happened it would be better if the name were shorter, like TuneFest or something like that. using the whole tag "【UTAUTuningFestival2016】" would probably get most of the title of the song cut off on youtube.

    How about 【UTAUTuningFest2016】 or maybe 【UTAUTuningFest】 since others might not get that "Tune" means "tuning" and might think it's an original song festival?

    I'd hate to double post (please merge this with my last post if you have the mod powers), but I need to do for the thread followers to notice since I updated the first post. Please read it.
    Here are the results of the last poll:

    I think that it should be until the end of "summer". Maybe from August until the end of September or something.

    upload_2016-7-29_13-30-32.png
    upload_2016-7-29_13-30-42.png

    So it's now final that the tuning festival will be year-round and that our prefix/tag will be 【UTAUTuningFest2016】.

    Now we can finally move on to the optional songs! Please read the first post!
    I also added @Miawerz 's earlier suggestions into the poll.

    Guys, even if we're voting and nominating for the optional Japanese song, you can nominate for the optional English song in advanced!

    I also added a deadline where the optional song will be chosen if a songs gets voted for at least 12 times. Hurry and vote so the tuning festival can start sooner!

    Feel free to suggest for or object the criteria for the optional song! (read the first post, please)

    [hr]
    Since it's been voted that the festival will be year-round, will the tag become "海外組調声晒し祭り16_歌" instead?

    While Cynic has already 12 votes, I will keep the poll up until the weekend ends. You can always change your vote or nominate another song last-minute if you want!

    In the meantime, feel free to nominate for the optional English! The criteria for it is on the first post.

    We now have the results for our optional Japanese song!
    upload_2016-8-8_20-8-11.png

    While no one nominated any optional English songs, the chat gave suggestions which really helped a lot. Here are the songs I considered (along with other songs I searched that fit the criteria):

    Convergence by Zoku ft. Equinox
    Remnants by Negai ft. Minarai Mona
    There Will Be War by DystoP ft. Daisy
    Karma by CircusP ft. Kagamine Rin
    Different Seas by CircusP ft. DEX
    Pushing Daisies by Kenji-B ft. DAINA

    Because of how there are currently 6 different songs to choose from, I won't put a limit on how many votes a song needs to have; instead, I will give the poll a solid deadline of it ending exactly 25 days from now.

    There are also other songs that I considered that a lot of you may like but did not fit the criteria:

    My Impulse by Kenji-B ft. DEX
    - The song is suited more for a powerscale voicebank
    Me Rindo by Aku P ft. Mike (links to a cover using the English lyrics instead)
    - The song is suited more for a powerscale voicebank
    Deja Vu by CircusP ft. Hatsune Miku & Megurine Luka

    - A duet may not be that suited for a first-time Tuning Festival
    - The available UST may take time to convert since the aliasing is different from most VCCV English voicebanks

    However, since these songs are so popular, I will add them into the poll if at least two different people nominate them.

    There are also other concerns on how the available USTs for some of these songs (and Cynic) have fully-tuned USTs, but I will be trusting the community to not just plug-and-play or to remove pitchbends before tuning.

    I would really love others to butt heads with me on the song criteria, by the way :wink:
