I agree with Blindboy. :thumbsup:

And probably the less discussion the better. Everyone knows whether they like what they hear and the poll would reflect their views. No amount of discussion one way or another is likely to change peoples minds - we either like what we hear or we don't.

Sorry if I jumped the gun a bit with those nominations. :shy: Maybe best to delete those icons in my posts? :icon_whoknows:

Sounds good HBL! Especially because there's no additional programming needed. :big_smile:

I'll set it up next week, if I get some free time before Xmas. :xmas_1: At least today we've got a xmas tree :dance:

OK, first try - we've got 2 forums, one to discuss, one to listen only. For testing, I created a thread with a recent song.

There's no option to hide the poll results - I'll see if I can modify the software...

I've spent some time do install and modify this one:

downloads.php?cat=1

Currently beta, but I think it's the better overall solution, less work for the admins :big_smile: .
Admins can upload a song and the community can rate.
If the list gets too large, we can shorten it. Maybe we have some top 5 "eternal" songs on top and a more "living" list below?
We can also add other categories (newcomer, acoustic, ???)

Btw. - we can use this mod for other uploads (e.g. backing tracks) also... it is highly configurable.

What do you think? I'd clean up all other HoF attempts then.

Looks fine to me at first sight Gerd :)
I'll be testing tomorrow (I'm affraid)

Got together with a bass player today to see if we like to start a Blues band together... I think we're on :D

The Blues can't exist without you guys.

BTW: you don't have to order a blues@nine CD Gerd, it's already been taken care of :)

:chicken: :banana: :dance: thanks!!!

I've tweaked the new HoF a bit. :wink:
Adding the flash inline player is a very hard thing - needs some time if ever. :wall:
Should we allow songs not uploaded to 12bar.de (eg soundclick, box, youtube...)? Don't know if the statistics are OK with it... :think:

But.... did you have to hide the Big BLue Downloadbutton on the right lowers ide of the screen ?
I missed it twice ( right eye blind and @ 40/50 cm distance from the screen) :wall:

OK, I dismissed the HoF downloads in favor of the more simple playlists.

Whenever you think your song uploaded to 12bar is ready for the playlist, simply add the icon above to the end of your post.
I'll start with two lists, one for the best of 2011 and a new one for 2012 - see viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1437

Keep in mind: :think:
  • the song must be on 12bar.de (not Soundclick etc.)
  • no 3rd party copyrights including backing tracks are violated
  • preferably final versions/complete songs
