(Previously known as AMV Sashimi)

We are a Discord server focused on video editing discussion & self-improvement, with emphasis on understanding how/why techniques work the way they do. While we have a bias toward anime music videos (AMVs), we welcome any and all people who edit any sort of fan-made music video.

  • Closely moderated
  • Casual chat channels
  • Critique request / beta testing
  • Member-run server events
  • Many members have been editing since the early 2000s

Server Rules

1. Don't be a jerk.

No hate speech, harassment or encouragement of harassment or harm (which includes self-harm), intentional misgendering, racial epithets, & no suicidal encouragement, even in jest.
This also means you cannot say "I want to die" & similar jokes aimed at yourself. This rule also covers Discord's Community Guidelines

Only give critique when it's asked for.

When giving critique, don't insult people.
Critique is constructive criticism that users have the ability to change. "Your vid sucks" is not critique.

Nobody's editing is "wrong."

Just because someone doesn't edit the way you would, does not mean they are "wrong." Nobody's editing is "wrong."
AMVs are art; people express themselves in different ways. Give feedback that is appropriate for what that particular editor's goals for the video are.
If you don't know what kind of feedback someone is looking for, ask them.
Likewise, don't insult the person giving you critique.

2. NSFW content is banned.

We are a Safe For Work server.
We loosely follow a PG-13 / PEGI 16 / Teen rating.

3. Do not link to piracy sites.

We follow Discord's Copyright & IP Policy.
You can talk about it, just don't make any clickable links.

4. This server promotes discussion & community engagement.

We want to talk about editing, share ideas, & help improve our skills & techniques.

Which also means: you should avoid self-promotion.
Unless it happens naturally in conversation, you should only post your self promotional links in #introductions and/or share individual videos you made in #vid-share .

4B. Keep contest-related chatter to its specific channels.

Posts talking about contest submissions, prizes, planning, and/or deadlines should go in #⁠contest-convos or its #⁠event-chats if it has one.

5. Flash warnings are required for all videos posted.

Other common photosensitive warnings are encouraged, but optional.
See our VPR page for more info.

Try to avoid very flashy GIFs as well - or put them in spoilers.
We also have a photosensitivity channel to discuss things related to VPR and our regulars with those health issues.
