Overall with the new Vocaloids released in 2014 (No updates to previous Vocaloids): Rana was the most popular introduced whereas Chika was the least popular introduced.

Of course, Miku maintains her popularity and gains momentum.  Tohoku Zunko started strong but wasn't able to maintain her popularity for a while. There is a sharp decline in popularity for Gumi, whereas KAITO had a huge boost in popularity, pushing him to #5.  Megurine Luka and IA are both loosing a bit of popularity.

Please see the link above if you want to know how well all of the VOCALOID's did. We only listed some.

Since this fanclub is for every VOCALOID,
The admins agreed to feature more VOCALOID's in the main icon. We decided on the most popular VOCALOID's of each of the main VOCALOID companies to represent the companies, respectively. We also decided to have all the languages represented (English, Japanese, Spanish, Korean, and Mandarin Chinese.)

But anyway, here's our new icon! - :iconvocaloid-fanclub:

Here is how we chose.

:bulletblue:Hatsune Miku - Crypton Future Media
:bulletgreen:GUMI - Internet Co.
:bulletpurple:Yuzuki Yukari - AH-Software
:bulletpink:IA - 1st Place
:bulletblue:Luo Tianyi - Shanghai He Nian, Bplats
:bulletblue:OLIVER - Power FX
:bulletgreen:AVANNA - Zero-G
:bulletpink:MAIKA - Voctro Labs
:bulletorange:SeeU - SBS Artech

We were gonna have VY1 to represent Bplats; but anymore VOCALOID's and the icon would be over deviantart's group icon size limit (30kb), so we decided to have Tianyi there to represent both Vocanese (Shanghai He Nian) and Bplats..
Happy Valentines everyone!!

Catching up: Daigasso! Band Brothers P is a 3DS game released on Nov 14, 2013 in Japan, the latest entry in the Daigasso! Band Brothers franchise.

This rhythm game is based on becoming a music producer and heavily promotes the use of VOCALOID. It allows users to create songs, download songs, and download a few VOCALOID voicebanks into the game. It promotes a "Create Your Own VOCALOID" system where players can make a low-quality VOCALOID database using the 3DS's built-in microphone.

Featuring the following VOCALOID's:

The active moderators discussed and we came to a conclusion that the MMD folder (along with the figurine folder) should be closed, for some reasons:

The  problem of the MMD folder (as well as the figure folder) is that the models aren't really created by the people that are submiting them. Instead, they are using sources from another artists and sculptors.

If people make/use their own models then that's a different story, but they're very few and far between. I don't think I've actually seen a single submission where someone used their own models - maybe I just missed them, but yeah, never seen it.

These submissions are different from cosplay, since the person is using their own body as model, they are using make up on themselves to look better, sometimes they sew their own cosplay. Which means, each person, cosplay is unique. Only the person that is wearing that cosplay can create this "art", no one else.
That's why the cosplay folder will be open.

Also, we share the point of view of another Vocaloid group, wich I'll link:…

But don't worry, I know there are many Vocaloid groups that accept MMD art (there are groups exclusively for them), so probably this won't be a problem =D

In case you created a model yourself, please submit it to the Other fanstuff folder.
It'll be accepted if you mention you designed it in the description.

Edit (new opinions that I considered worthy to share:

...Plus MMD was made, as the name implies, for dancing, MVs and such, not for snapshotting and calling it your own piece of art. We are giving priority to the ones who make things out of zero (even if you use a design that already exist, you're creating your own drawing from pretty much nothing, which is very different from using a premade model).

...Fanartists create their drawings: they literally sit down, map out the image in their mind, then their hand moves, and the fanart comes into being. Cosplayers create their roles: if they make their own costumes, they sit down, cut fabric, stitch them together, and the cosplay comes into being - and if they don't make their own costumes, they put it together, slide into that character, and create that role. And cosplay also involves creative makeup artistry, which as a cosplayer I can tell you is not something that comes out of thin air - it's a skill that's difficult to learn.

When the admins discussed this, we understood that the difference is that most MMD submissions lack that aspect of creation, UNLESS the model is 100% created by that member from scratch. It's not about creativity, but creation. I can basically write long essays about this and talk about it forever, so if you would like to discuss it further, just let me know and I'm happy to explain more until it makes sense.
