The new Administration is online
The new band administration offers many new features and improvements.
Even though there're still a couple of issues on our to-do list we hope you like it and are looking forward to getting your feedback!

Preview of new Administration is online
We've been working hard since February to bring you the next upgrade of the SoundClick site. Now we're very excited to present you the preview of this major upgrade.

Among the highlights are a clear focus on SoundClick being a music-based community. A clean, easy-to-manage user interface. Updated tools for managing your user or band account. Multi-song uploads. Smart playlists. Tools for music bloggers and reviewers. The list is pretty long, but you'll better see for yourself.

Go to preview

As announced at http://board.soundclick.com/viewtopic.php?t=279251 we're in the final stages of a data center move. There were some issues with song uploads or apparently being logged out. Most of the issues have been fixed.

The move will be finished on Wednesday. It's possible that there will be temporary downtime or other related issues. We try to minimize those but please bear with us if they happen.

After Wednesday everything will be back to normal. Actually we combined the data center move with some hardware upgrades, so it should be even better than normal.

Thanks!

New SoundClick upgrade coming soon
We've been working hard since February to bring you the next upgrade of the SoundClick site. We're still developing and designing, tweaking, discussing, and re-designing everything. But we now have our first timetable goal set.

We're expecting the first public preview of the new SoundClick version to be unveiled August 29!

This will not yet be the final version, but it will come very close to it. The public preview is supposed to give you an overview of the new features, new designs and layouts. The major functions will already be functional, so that you can take everything for a test drive and provide us with your feedback.

We're very happy with the development so far, and can't wait to show it to you.

Among the highlights are a clear focus on SoundClick being a music-based community. A clean, easy-to-manage user interface. Updated tools for managing your user or band account. Multi-song uploads. Smart playlists. Tools for music bloggers and reviewers. The list is pretty long, but you'll better see for yourself.

So see you August 29!

Here we go: we hid the 5th and final virtual Easter somewhere on a SoundClick member page. The first one to find it will win $50.00!

To claim your prize, you must be the first person to post here where exactly you've found the egg. In this case just post the member name or the URL where you found it.

From time to time we post additional hints for egg #5 right here, so check back often.

Here's your first hint: the egg is hidden on a SoundClick member profile. This particular member
» has a member picture
» single
» straight
» smokes, but should quit
» drinks socially

The egg will look similar to the 4 eggs found before.

Good luck, happy hunting big grin :D


PS: we'll pay the winners by PayPal. If you can't be paid by PayPal you can't win. Only registered members can participate, accounts under review can't participate. Only virtual eggs hidden by our staff are valid, don't try to post fake eggs. You can't claim more than one prize. Void where prohibited.

Here we go: we hid virtual Easter egg number 4 (of 5) somewhere on a SoundClick artist page. The first one to find it will win $50.00!

To claim your prize, you must be the first person to post here where exactly you've found the egg. In this case just post the band or artist name and the song title.

From time to time we post additional hints for egg #4 right here, so check back often.

Here's your first hint: the egg is hidden on the "full song info" page of a SoundClick band or artist.

The egg will look similar to the 3 eggs found before.

Good luck, happy hunting big grin :D

Here we go: we hid virtual Easter egg number 3 (of 5) somewhere on a SoundClick artist page. The first one to find it will win $50.00!

To claim your prize, you must be the first person to post here where exactly you've found the egg. In this case just post the band or artist name and the song title (see first hint below).

From time to time we post additional hints for egg #3 right here, so check back often.

Here's your first hint: the virtual easter egg is hidden on a "texting MP3 to cell phone" page. So it can be found on an artist page, go to the music page there. You will see links for the texting feature on songs that are available as free downloads. You don't need to actually use the texting feature for this contest, the Easter egg is directly on the pop-up page.

The egg will look similar to the 2 eggs found before.

Good luck, happy hunting big grin :D

Here we go: we hid virtual Easter egg number 2 (of 5) somewhere on SoundClick. The first one to find it will win $50.00!

To claim your prize, you must be the first person to post here where exactly you've found the egg. The best way to do this is to copy the URL address (that's the "http://www.soundclick.com/..." address in your browser).

From time to time we post additional hints for egg #2 right here, so check back often.

Here's your first hint: the virtual easter egg is hidden somewhere on a member page. It will look very similar to egg number one (found earlier by grotesque records).

Good luck, happy hunting big grin :D

Here we go: we hid virtual Easter egg number 1 somewhere on SoundClick. The first one to find it will win $50.00!

To claim your prize, you must be the first person to post here where exactly you've found the egg. The best way to do this is to copy the URL address (that's the "http://www.soundclick.com/..." address in your browser).

From time to time we post additional hints for egg #1 right here, so check back often. Okay, the first hint (drum roll...): the first egg is hidden somewhere on a page where you can play music. So this could be a music page of a band, a user station page, charts page, a music license page... you get the idea.

Good luck big grin :D

Easter egg hunt 2008
Has it been a year already? That means SoundClick's annual Easter egg hunt is here again! Woohoo... big grin :D

For those who missed it last year: we'll hide a virtual Easter egg (similar to the one you see here) on any SoundClick page. From time to time we'll post some hints right here to steer you in the right direction.
The first one who finds the Easter egg wins real money! This year we'll hide 5 Easter eggs for $50.00 each!

The hunt starts Monday at 10am EST!

This is gonna be fun, guys.
Happy Easter smile :)

UPDATE: the hint for the first Easter Egg has been posted in the new blog

We added a new feature on the music pages and the mp3 player as well: sending songs via short text message to a cell phone. It's labeled "sms song to cell phone".

Basically you send a short SMS to a cell phone. In the SMS is a download link and he/she can download the full mp3 song to his/her cell phone. This feature is only available for songs which are marked as "free downloads".

We think it's a pretty cool feature. Of course we tested it with a couple of cell phones and it worked fine in our tests. But if you can test-drive this feature on your cell phones and give us some feedback here whether it's working for you guys as well it'd be much appreciated!

Thanks! big grin :D

Wow, over 1,300 songs were submitted in round #1, thanks!
Cutting down the field is never easy and in this case we chose 250 songs to enter round #2. Congratulations to all those wonderful artists who made it this far.
On Dec 01 we'll present the Top 20 finalists. Until then, fans can listen to and rate the songs.
The Top 20 selection will be based on song plays, average song rating, user comments and our own panel judges.
Songs can be rated on the contest page, on the charts page and on the artist's own music page on SoundClick.

Our VIP accounts can now test-drive the brand new VIP admin tools. We're very proud of it. It makes designing your VIP page very easy and actually fun. We converted most of your previous settings to the new system. Since that is an automatic process you may need to tweak it a little. So play around with the settings on your band administration page (VIP only) and see how much more designing power you now have.

And the winner is (drummroll)...icbeats !!

Please see all winners here.

The final ranking is naturally subjective. Please see our comments why we picked songs and what we liked about them. It's important to us that this contest was not about winning, but rather about having fun, showing your skills, and networking with others in the vast SoundClick community. We hope you all had as much fun as we had. Looking forward to the next contest smile :)

Thanks to everyone who submitted his/her song! You all rock!!
