Hi everyone! In case anyone is looking for CD cover/insert artwork I am a graphic designer who LOVES to do this kind of specialized design work. See my FB KS Design page to see some examples of my work: https://www.facebook.com/pages/KS-D
many tahnks for the constructive review of my song "Make me feel". Yes, I'm italian and my English pronunciation is surely not so good. But I like sing in English, it's more fascinating for me. Osea
No problem. Good for you for taking on the English challenge! Keep up the good work.
Can someone tell me how a song gets on a Top 10 list??
Kathryn...Supposedly, it's a combination of factors: # plays, # playlists the song is on, star rating (1 to 4) from listeners (when you listen to someone's song, you can rate it from 1-4 stars), rating from other broadjam members when your song is reviewed. They use an algorithm to determine the overall rating (although I'm not aware if anyone knows the specifics of the algorithm). Anthony
Hi Kathryn - Elaborating a little on what The Spermatochords said; I asked Roy about this a month or so ago. Here's what he said (I cut out the non-relevant parts) Hope Roy doesn't mind my cut and paste: "Top 10s are generated by a series of events on Broadjam. Peer reviews, ratings, Showdown, playlists, song plays and a few other stats combine to create the top 10s. Likes on Facebook or other popularity events do not contribute. Only artistic recognition of some sort contributes to the Top 10s. Within each category, we look at the activity for a certain period of time, maybe 30 days in one category and 90 days in another. These variables and dates are altered periodically to ensure that quality and quantity is at an acceptable level."
Thanks so much Anthony and Robert! It kind of puzzles me because I don't really have that many plays or songs on playlists to make it seem like the song(s) are doing that well. Oh well...I am not complaining! Best to you both.
Hi Kathryn, exactly what I was wondering, I'm pretty new to this site (6 months) and I just made the Folk top-ten. Like you, I'm not complaining, but just wondering.
