Yeah I had 50% Music Playground and 50% commercial music for the first episode I believe. Was only different for that last one I made because it was a specially focused rave music episode

Some more screenshots. Please consider, that I am not a designer, and I just picked some random icons through google. Hopefully one of the talented designers on this site will help us create some nice color schemes and icons in the future. But functionality wise, I think this is the direction I will go.

Yeah I'm liking the looks of those screenshots :)

Perhaps the home page could also have small icon hyperlinks in one of the corners which go to the Music Playground networking sites around the net (such as Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, etc).

Mos DEF! I like this, will like it even more when a designer gets his hands on it. I hope we have an actual web designer on board since it is very relevant to distribute the links propperly.

I've been thinking about the multiple entries thing, and I would probably use it as a sort of 'last resort', if participation is low. The limit of 16 minimum entrants were a direct result of the group system, so it could be set lower in the future, however I still think we should keep 16 as a guidance.

If 16 entrants haven't joined a week (or maybe even 3 days) before the deadline, artists that have already entered are given an extra upload slot. I don't know if entering another track is a benefit for the artist, but the option will be there. Any artist who enters after does not get an extra slot.

Also, one of the new trophies will automatically give an additional upload slot.

Here's a quick sneakpeak at the competition download page. New things on this page:

[list=*]
[*]The order of the tracks are randomized on each visit
[*]Tracks can be streamed directly
[*]A quick rate for tracks
[*]Popup review access
[/list]

Again, I'm not a designer, but this is what it will look like until one shows up.

Edit: Also a quick view of the new track manager.
