I still don`t know what Atom Collector, as a title, means?

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 I’ve already termed the quick click to get the credit capital needed. But when I got a warning/message of “are you a robot” 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 you’ve already seen a fair amount of “do this, don’t do that” 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 I’m not sure that I really understand what the site’s 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.

I’ll try to do my best to keep these comments short but I’ve a fair amount to say so… I need to split it into 3 to make it work within limitations.

First off I really like the direction that this web site is taking. And what I have to say I hope will be taken in the light of encouragement and constructive criticism.

I’ve already said that what bothered me the most about SC was and still is their lack of response (or the ol’ “don’t give a s@#t” mentality.) They seem to forget that the only reason they’re in business is because of their members and NOT the other way around.
When I first joined SC it was much, much more of a community where when you posted your song you got comments that were both encouraging and filled with helpful, meaningful criticism. With the “new” SC you got many more swift clicks that were, as I call them, a digital slap on the back or “you slap my back I’ll slap yours” I could see this change virtually overnight and it was almost a horror to see happening but I stuck with them as they were virtually the only game in town. The other sites seemed to me to be for folks who wanted “THE big record deal” and that just wasn’t me. I’m just looking to get these songs/productions listened to and to get some feedback.
