New Incentive Rules
« on: January 08, 2010, 06:14:56 pm »
Here are the rules for the new incentive I am bringing forward to help the board and encourage participation.

1. You must PM myself with the song you would like stickied and a link to the songs topic.

2. Only one request can be made per week.

3. Only one song can be stickied. The sticky will hold in place for 7 days from topic being stickied.

4. There is no PM spamming of songs you would like stickied. Again it is only one request per week.

5. It is not first come first serve. You PM me and the song will be stickied.

6. Each artist can request whichever of their own songs they would like and it is to be only one sticky which is allocated to each artist.

7. Once the 7 days are up the song will be unstickied and will revert to a normal topic.

8. An artist gets 4 requests per month, one request to count for each week of the month. But they cannot be used all at once.

9. Any abuse of this feature or these rules will result in your sticky request being taken away.

10. You sticky request must be PM'ed to me by Sunday, through which I will sticky the songs and make a list of those songs stickied and publish it on the forum.

11. Every Sunday will now be known as Sticky Sunday (make any vulgar jokes that you like haha). Again I will re-interate that the sticky holds in place till the following Sunday (7 days) and the new stickies will be put in place.

12. If your sticky PM request is not in to me by that Sunday you will lose your request for that week. Many people will say this is unfair but it is the only way to balance against those who don't visit the forum as regularly and the 7 day time limit is sufficient time through which you can get your request to me. Again this rule inparticular hopefully will encourage more activity as many people will want their song stickied. I understand that not many people can come on as often as they like but if they even have 2 minutes then it's enough given that they have 7 days to get the request to me.

I hope these explain the new incentive and that everyone enjoys this new idea. Hopefully it will generate the kind of activity we used to here at TIMGUL. I know that comments on tunes help everyone and can encourage artists to make new tunes. I hope this brings the balance and participation we know and enjoy here at TIMGUL and that everyone will enjoy this opportunity to make good tunes and have a guaranteed way of getting them out there!

Looks good to me.... They can also PM me, NaN, or Fear if you're not available and we can sticky them as well. I like the concept... Focusing on one song a week meanwhile all/any other songs by that artist are still just as reachable by viewing the Showcase or their profile/contributions. I think this really could work great. The main emphasis is making sure songs aren't forgotten or buried and having a focal point like this with an artists thread stickied with their song should definitely prevent this. The encouragement can definitely lead to further inspirations or even better.

Does this include non-MTVMG/MUSIC tunes?

How does it work for us, i.e. admins? Are we eligible or no?

My personal opinion is it honestly doesn't matter if it's with MUSIC software or NON-MTV MUSIC created. With that being said I really hope we all do not come to a point where we abandon MUSIC. I NEVER WILL. Let's make an oath right now!  For if it weren't for Mr. Tim Wright and the life-changing MUSIC software ummm guys we wouldn't be here right now. We wouldn't be progressing onto other professional based software either. Just put it in perspective.

I also feel that "Sticky Sunday" should be/needs to be open to ALL members including Admins and Moderators. As Head Admin I am saying yes all members including Admins and Moderators will be allowed. :)

I have said it before and I will say again, I vow never to forget my roots. I still use many samples from Music 2000 in a lot of my FL music. :) To me that shows how good they are, how versatile they are.

I am thinking we should wait at least one week to start Sticky Sunday. This gives time hopefully for every member to know about this and to read the rules n what not. Also if anyone is working on a song they want finished that they might want to use for their 'Sticky' entry....

How would the staff come to a decision on who gets chosen, would it be one mod chooses from one week, or would there be a thread in the Staff Only section discussing who would be Stickied that week?

No the artists choose which song they want showcased/stickied.... It'll work. I hope to have a gem of a song to include in this.

Of course.... Honestly as Head Admin I don't feel like I am any different than a member. I don't have "powers" or live by a different set of rules. The only thing I have are duties, responsibilities to make sure the Forum runs smoothly. We're all in this together and no one is above anyone else. I do have the most to lose and most responsibility on my shoulders and have Omni's trust that I will continue to move TIMGUL in this new direction... I can't let anyone down or myself.. TIMGUL rocks.

Lyricist, are you starting Sticky Sunday this weekend? or... I noticed activity is rather slow right now, so unsure if it would make sense to begin this weekend. Your thoughts?

Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner Rob, been hella busy cooking up some...well let's say stuff that you may find out about (well all TIMGUL listeners will!) I think it should still go ahead as planned as I believe a lot of good new tracks (which due to my cooking) I haven't got round to listening to, but I'll put an announcement up soon enough to let everyone know ;)
