Giggleplex.Red :: An Anarchist Multimedia Commons

Form and Purpose

We are a network of amateur media activists, of the libertarian socialist, anarchist, or anarcho-communist persuasion.
Though socialists of other persuasions may be invited to participate in our projects, or to invite us to participate in theirs, our focus is on creating ANARCHIST propaganda.

Registration and Engagement

Registration

We aim to be a productive platform, for streamlined collaboration on media projects, so please keep the typical social or meme posting to a minimum, but making regular announcements pertaining to newfound information, knowledge, or skills, or your availability would be very considerate to your fellow artists.

As you register, please indicate your aptitudes, contact information, and the kinds of projects you'd like to cultivate or be involved in for review. Please bear in mind that although I would be very flattered to have experts interested working with me, I'm afraid I'd only slow them down, but I may be open to work with experts once I become an expert myself. If experts do want to work with me or other amateurs in this instance, it would be nice for them to say that they specifically would like to work with us knowing that we're amateurs.

To all others interested in collaborating with us, membership is not necessary, so you may freely contact any of us to request their skills, though our users may accept or decline proposals from those not in this instance at their own discretion, and our users do not need any reason to decline your proposal, so please do not badger our artists.

Engagement: Guidelines and Etiquette

Users are encouraged to let others know about the tools they use, their particular aptitudes, and also their thoughts, misgivings, and ideas for assets being presented. Our stance here is that democratic consultation and amendments before completion and publication are far more productive and amicable than multitudes of critiques after publishing a rough work. Similarly, collaboration and democracy can create products of higher quality and general appeal that are less harmful than projects undertaken persistently on an individual basis. Please do not work alone while you're here, you are here because you want to work TOGETHER.

You may announce a project you are working on with the hashtag ( e.g. '#Project' ), with information on your project's subject matter, specifications on your desired assets for this project, the types of skillsets you think you'd need (e.g. video editor, animator, writer, voice actor, etc.), and if any, particular individuals you would like to have working with you on the project.
It may also be nice to have your project specifications accompanied with scripts, sketches, screenplays, to help establish a firm understanding of your project's blueprint.

Once the project tag is posted, others may contribute sounds and music, videos and animations, photos and drawings, and artistic assets by posting them with your project's tag for review.

All users are invited to state their praises and misgivings to any and all tagged projects and all proposed contributions thereto before publication, particularly in a constructive format, by making suggestion. All users are advised to consider the misgivings of others.
This is a relatively secluded space, and naturally, all critiques that are authored within this space are occurring BEFORE the projects in question are completed, let alone released to the wider public, so NO, you aren't being 'cancelled' just because some people had misgivings with your work.
You came here wanting to work with others through democratic processes and conduct, so f!@#ing own it.

Attribution Etiquette

All projects undertaken internally within Giggleplex.Red are to display the commons' "general attribution card".

We would like all our artists to design their own cards indicating that they have contributed to any project for personal attribution, and to showcase their talents. All artists are encouraged to insist that their personal attribution cards are displayed in projects, both within and outside Giggleplex.Red, containing their work.

If the artists in question have contributed to projects conducted outside our commons on a personal basis, they should ask if it would be okay to have Giggleplex.Red's general attribution card displayed the final product, as other artists here might not want to be associated with it.
If you're not gonna ask, don't do it. If you're in doubt, don't do it.
If the okay is given, the project is to be treated as an official collaboration, and is to display the general attribution card as such.

If many artists in our commons have seen fit to collaborate in outside project, and there are no misgivings with the project or its originators, please request them to display our general attribution card in the final product, and all of the personal attribution cards of the contributors
