I'm slowly working on this. One thing I've realized is that the song info pages need to come from the yggdrasilradio.net site instead of from the request server inside my house. This will enable me to have direct access to the database with the vote info in it.

I'll also have access to the album art, but not some of the trivia and statistics, like number of times played, etc. So the song info is probably going to lose the picture of Skuld along with her dialog, and have the album art instead.

The whole dialog with the goddesses thing, like Urd accosting you when you've made too many requests, Peorth being in charge of registrations... I think I'm going to be moving away from that. It was a cute schtick, and kind of clever, but it's been more than five years now and maybe I want to do something different.

Not being so slavishly tied to a "goddesses" theme would mean new banners featuring any anime character at all, which would be a lot of fun, don't you think? And I'm thinking about a new tagline to replace "Jpop to wake you up." Every radio station reinvents itself every so often, and I think it's about time for us to freshen things up a bit.

I'm thinking of changing that to "J-Rocking the world!" What do you think?

This change in the source info of the data from the "like/dislike" and "love" song_options will enable new request-related normal-users services? Or is just for administration porpuses?

The album art is not existent in some songs... ¿Can be placed instead a link to the forum to sugest one for that song?

"The only real constant in life, is change"... Go for it!

The Yggrasil default theme must remain with the "goddesses", but it can change for special ocasions (like the Xmas mod), the main factor here is the "exposition time" of other animes and the "visual memory identification" of the website when someone try to remember it.

This radio is not limited to J-Pop or J-Rock...

The duration and sound_intensity-structure of the tagline is critical for knowing/remembering where come from something:
((J)))-pop..to-wake-you...up!....
--^^------..-^--^^---__...^^.....

For self-publicity reasons... If posible, make it similar; it work for me! *

*The first time I listen the tagline was some years ago, on the background music of a cibercafe... just after the "Railgun Opening" (cool place... it´s a pizza delivery now Y_Y); then a google search for the radio, only can remember that last part.

I higly support this and asked in the past ^^

But... If you drop the goddess line, then that means the name of the station wont be appropriate anymore... As you explained to me in the past its "Yggdrasil" mainly because of AMG. Wouldnt this result in the end in a name-changing that would be more fit for a multiple anime themed radio?...

What do you mean by "new request-related normal-users services" ? This change will allow us to vote on the song info page direct, you wont need: to request the song, wait for it to play IN order to be able to thumb up it or pick it as one of your favorite. You will be able to do that regardless if the song is playing or not...

Nooo! Keep the original theme for the website! The AMG-based Yggdrasil system is absolutely awesome! Don't destroy it!

If you absolutely need to refresh everything, then do one of two things:
- Leave the original as the default, add new themes as user-selectable skins.
- Migrate the original theme out as a user-selectable skin, and make a new default.

But whatever you do, please don't toss it out!

For a trivial example of skin/theming... I refer to http://otaku.concordia.ca/ ... where users can set their default skin with the links in the top-right corner. The selection is cookie-based, and will be remembered for quite a while under most circumstances. You could probably do the same sort of thing here, and even extend it to skin elements beyond CSS colors such as text, formatting, layouts.

I agree, I don't see anything wrong in a change from a goddesses theme to something different.

About the tagline... Getting a catchy one is difficult, it's a job for a reason^^;
O4O Otaku for Otaku?

I have to vote against this. It implies/holds meaning much much more than just music...
I think Rick dont want to turn this site some big collection of pages with informations, rumours, in-text talking site like a lot of them out there. Its purely a music station and no more :)

I really like starlocke's theming idea - The AMG theme across-site has been a large appeal for me. The skuld, belldandy, and urd shtick never really seemed to get old, because it was done so well; I've only been here for about two years now, though, so my opinion may be slightly skewed from yours :)

Theming, though, would provide a way to add the different anime characters you want without having to remove some of the stuff that older users love :D

as for a new catchphrase? Hmm....
How about "Yggdrasill Radio - J-Music you can't live without!"?
