Hi guys, you may not have heard of me: and that's a good thing.
I have been on hitRECord for over three years now. Over the last few months I haven't been active as much as usual due to work, however I am very familiar with the site and I feel that I could best represent the 'average' user of hitRECord.
My main issue with this search for community representatives is that only the major users of the site who are well-known in the community will be chosen, instead of normal users who make up the majority of the community; the people who haven't been featured on the site or have started a massive collaboration, or been a quintessential piece in the making of several products. Obviously the major users have more experience in the way hitRECord works, but the normal and largely unnoticed users should also have a voice and I think that could be me.
I love hitRECord; I love the show, the records, the ethos, the community, everything.The site has definitely made me a more creative person and I don't know what I would do without it. My main 'abilities' are writing, photography (moving and still) and editing. However the collaborations do have a tendency to favour animators and musicians, as it takes a lot more 'know-how' to animate and play and record music. While there has been a lot more opportunities for writers and photographers such as SFAFF, WWC and the patterns book, I still think more can be done.
Editing needs to be sorted out though. I understand that editing is about moderating and piecing together and that this is better done by the actual, professional editors however...
I didn't manage to complete all of my challenges last year (some of them were pretty huge) but I'm confident I'll do better this year.
So guys, here's what I want to...
The government believed in peace and killed anyone who opposed it.
The coat was hanging innocently on a hook on the back of my door. It was a horrible coat. It just was. I hated everything about it. It was just so cheap and stupid and I'd had it...
So I'w's takin' this guy down t'Queen's Lid,
Real posh place by t'London Eye,

All on his own, in the...
