Tfw I've been trying my best not to throw my experience in a group's face when trying to get them to understand that perhaps their standards, expectations, and choices are not the best for the current group level. Newbies complain that the ""popular and older people in the community won't bend down to help new people improve." but it's more like, you're bossing around these said seniors and we don't want to help you anymore!!
It's your first or second chorus battle (online youtube singing / music video contest using anime art as avatars for the singers) and it's my eighth or ninth. If I'm saying that our vocals aren't strong because we lack a bass voice and everyone is a soprano or alto, DON'T SING THE OPENING SONG TO SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN. Y'ALL AREN'T REVO. Don't critique the mixer's WIP with comments based on what you don't know about audio mixing. Don't request extra artwork from artists when you don't know that art doesn't just POOF outta nowhere when you ask for it. Don't expect the animators to do everything you want for the video because some things are beyond their knowledge and skill level.
Asking me to trust you on who you grab to help the team that I clearly have never met, never seen their previous work, nor know their work ethic is asking me to not work with you ever again. Do you know why our team has a hard time finding staff that weren't people that I helped you find? It's because it's hard to attract staff members to agree to work for us if you are unknown in the community. No, being popular in the Love Live cover community doesn't count in this competitive sphere.
You don't want to start working early? You don't want to set deadlines until the theme is released? That's just a set-up for procrastination and giving yourself less time to work on a quality product. I want YOU to TRUST ME instead of me trusting you. I trust my run of experiences over some stranger who has talent, but has no experience working in a chorus battle.
I'm not helping newbies anymore without at least another older community member in the same group. This entitled whiny attitude is why few kind senpais want to carry you to popularity. Do it yourself. Learn how to do it yourself.
