I guess the musicoin thing might be good. Trouble is, no one, well, not many people are listening to soundcloud (huge drop-off there), Spotify (most avoided it, anyway), bandcamp never caught on and Fanburst (really, who the hell cares about Fanburst?).

A couple of things to remember:
1. ACR is still quite new and needs about 10k regular users to be busy on all platforms really.
2. Musicoin is very new and still in it`s beta testing phase. At the moment the currency has tiny trading volumes. Once Musicoin comes out of beta and is working consistently I think we will see a dramatic increase it it`s value but I am no expert, just being logical. Why would anyone want to be on Spotify if they could earn even 1 cent per play in real time?

Yes it`s definitely a double edged sword. And with the way the value of musicoin currency seems to be plummeting day after day as well . . . . . .

In Pro User Settings is "skipped" listed on a song left before the one minute mark or the whole song? I assume it is 1:00 but I don`t know for sure.

Yes it is if before the 1 minute.

Also if someone votes and then clicks next it will show as a skip but you will see the play beforehand.

Hi, guys an` gals! Brighton [UK] based band # is looking for a drummer. The new album is almost finished, so there`s opportunity to have couple of tracks recorded straight ahead and be part of the new lineup. 20+ original tunes in repertoire so the newcomer will be busy but the friends and band R worth it.
If you are into music and like good old 3-chord rock n roll songs, you`re our person! Rehearsals twice a week. Please pass the word on in case somebody is idle and wants to beat those skins in a loud band. Our tunes are featured here as well, but check out our website at www.hashtagband.net for bio and stuff!
Keep It Loud!

Have you been listening to Musicoin tracks to earn the new type of credit?

We had a notice from our hosting company that there has been a change to the security certificates and you may get that for a while until everything is upgraded.

Voting Musicoin songs seems strange, it gives an error message, than if you try again a second windows appears. Does this work?

Voting now works for Musicoin

What did I miss? Chatango is out and Dischord is the new site I have to make another account with?

I already miss the uncluttered chat page that used to be; now user info takes up most of the visible box and fewer comments can be seen.

If you hover over "Larger Chat" you will get a bigger chat window. You can also use Discord in an app on computers and phones. It is a much better solution.

Hi JJ
Yesterday, I removed 10 credits from my Musicoin track, because I wanted to add them to another ( Musicointrack) but they just disappeared :-( And I am not able to add the credits, I have earned yesterday, either . - What to do...?/ Line

I have not seen this problem. Can you email me a screen print of the 3 credit amounts in "My Details" please.

Welcome. Yes if you go to "My Details" you can fill out your information. Right at the bottom of the page is where you can put your social links. Twitter is particularly important as you will get tagged when people share your music.

Question for Juxta regarding Spotify Playlists: Are the bands/artists contained in the playlist blocked from seeing it? Specifically, I have a playlist--understandably, it wouldn`t come up for me in the Spotify Playlist rotation. What I need to know is if everybody on that playlist, Aranads, Ron D Bowe, Dekkoes and many others would be blocked from it?

Cheers Juxta - hadn`t thought about people actively trying to abuse the playlists system when I asked the question...

Of course, we can`t listen to our own playlists here. My question is about the artists on our playlist. If they have one song on it, would they be barred from the whole playlist? Doesn`t seem likely somebody would want to listen to their own track over and over for 20mins. They wouldn`t get any atomcollectorrecord credits if they did, right? If all of the rockers are barred from a rock playlist, that leaves other genres who aren`t gonna like it much.

The reason is to keep things simple.

On a technical level it is the same code that is used for tracks and some people would just keep skipping to their own tracks to get their credits up.

Also whilst I appreciate that you may want to listen to your own playlists the point of the site is to get more unique plays for everyone so the playlists start to show up in the artist`s profiles on Spotify. You have to have 25 unique listeners to your track on a given playlist per month for it to show up.

Is there a reason to block us from playing our own playlists? Some of mine feature other ACR artists, so I wouldn`t mind listening through here. Presumably the credit would just come off and be put back on again by the system?

You don`t see your own playlists but if you are on someone else`s you will see it.

I`m pretty sure that you are the only one who is blocked from seeing it because you are the one who put it on rotation, not the others. :)
