The site is great & I agree with the comments made re listening to 30 seconds etc. One suggestion would be to not show chart position of a song that you are listening to in rotation. The easy access to your own chart positions is excellent. But when I listen to a track by someone else I prefer to do it without knowing whether or not other people like it i.e. have voted for it. Not knowing means I have to be more objective + (personally) I`m more inclined to vote for a track that is lower in the charts, as a way to encourage, than a track that is already riding high. Removing the chart position means that all judgements are purely on the merits of the music. Feel free to disagree! Overall the site is great.

I don`t find myself to be at all influenced by chart data-even for my own tracks (that could be because I`m not on the charts l,l,l). I don`t mind seeing it but on the other hand I wouldn`t cry if it went bye-bye either.

Personally I`m not influenced by chart position and votes already cast. I exercise my right to vote with liberal abandon, for whatever I happen to like at the time - and usually repeatedly for the same tracks over a number of days within the month. However we`re all different, and I see no issue with having the ability to turn the display off for those that find it distracting. Not sure how many folk actually vote? It would not surprise me to find out it is a small minority.

It is a very interesting idea and seeing the chart position may well influence a person`s decision to vote or not. For example, we`ve voted for a number of tracks that nobody else voted for. Show/hide might be a good option.

Interesting idea. What do others think about this?

If other`s want this then I`ll add a "hide/show chart positions" option.

Hello again ladies and gentlemen. We`re back! :)
First, thanks for all your votes, support and comments. They are greatly appreciated.
This month we`ve included all 17 tracks from our 2002 album At Least 1000 Words.
Every track has been here before but only 6 at a time.
This month we thought we`d be bold and include all of them.
Working on album #2, HappySad:
As you can tell we are extremely prolific!
Have a fabulous July! George X Maxx X Sven X

Can I change a category for a song?
And can upload a track exclusively for Atom or does it have to be already listed on SC, Spotify, YouTube?

At the moment you have to delete the track and add it again to change the genre.

Songs can`t be uploaded here. Maybe in the future.

That`s great to hear. Thank you!

I still don`t know what Atom Collector, as a title, means?
30 June 2017 16:12
Well you succeeded! (Esoteric isn`t exactly the term I`d use but...)

LMAO Sludgey!!!

To be honest it started with the name of a band Thom Yorke was in called "Atoms For Peace". I just had this idea of a site that collects all the sounds together from different sources but I don`t like boring names like "Music Collector" so I wanted something a bit more esoteric!

Behold the Sludge
Maybe he was trying to collect a guy named Adam and he got confused :-0

How do I or can I change the order that tracks appear? And how would I do that?

You can`t change the order. The system is designed to give everyone an equal chance at being heard and in turn allow you to discover some music you may not have even realised you liked!

it would be nice to link the username tag on the map and be able to message or follow that way i could target artists from my region without having to search for them of the members tab.

I have been thinking about adding a lot more info on the maps. Was waiting until we had a lot more members and just trying to decide on the priorities of future enhancements.

Watch this space!

Now I must admit that when I first joined Atom I got caught up in what Iíve already termed the quick click to get the credit capital needed. But when I got a warning/message of ďare you a robotĒ I asked myself what the hell are you doing?
Unfortunately I fear that the credit system actually encourages and rewards this quick click syndrome, like the newer SC, and makes that sort of activity even more palatable. What we (read-I) want or need is more comments not some offhand and questionable congrats via clicks.

As youíve already seen a fair amount of ďdo this, donít do thatĒ type suggestions and it does seem that you actually pay attention to them you would appear to be well on your way to having not only a pleasurable site but one that MIGHT be very worthwhile.
BTW Iím not sure that I really understand what the siteís name is supposed to mean to me.

We used to offer bonus credits Twisty but it caused the listens to decrease over time. The only way the system works at the moment is if there is a 1 to 1 ratio.

In the future we hope to have a fan version of the site so non-musicians can listen too. Then we will be able to offer bonus credits again.

needs to be more credits per song , people want enough credits they wont listen long if only getting one per track .

I think it forces artists to focus on having something catchy the first 30 seconds.

Thank you for your detailed posts and kind words. The 30 second thing is something we have all discussed in the past and we have considered raising it to 60 seconds.

I think you will always get a certain group of people that are only interested in getting the credits and probably don`t even have the volume up. I`m always open to what is best for everyone and will take on board everything that is suggested.

Thank you again for your support.
