    • Fix The Non-Beta Version Button

      Fix the non-beta version button because all it does right now is refresh the page. I need to go back to how the people and profile pages were before because they were so easy to find collaborators. I need to search for people using specific qualifications and skills like people who play guitar or play who use Logic Pro or people who are influenced by a certain artist. Please fix this asap because it's vital for me.

        • Lyrics Section for Songs

          When I remake a song, sometimes I change the lyrics. I would like to see a small link (maybe a pop up) to enter my recrafted lyrics to the song in the contest.

          • Chat/Broadcast Room.

            A live chat room with webcam which allows one to broadcast/podcast live and share equipment/studio designs with the rest of the musicians. I love the listening party, it would be something like that but i suppose live uninhibited and more inclusive and response oriented rather than just a forum or threads, forums allow permanent archival opportunities so you could give everyone the choice to save transcripts of chats to archives directly onto their profile in a private folder or downloadable as a txt file...
            A chat room solely for musicians and producers would be very lucrative in terms of collaborations,etc..

                    • The Judges Critique System.

                      A feedback system, for members who were considered by the judges for a win, but were not chosen.
                      This system would provide members with an explanation on what to improve to secure a win.

                            • Let's do some relaxing remixes.

                              I had so much fun with the Rjd2 remix. I propose a Gramatik or possibly a Massive Attack remix contest. Trip hop is seriously underrated in my opinion.

                              • AFK button for the listening party

                                When in the listening party, it would be nice if you could allow users to indicate when they are AFK. You could add an icon over their profile picture in the top right corner just like you do when they use the mute button. Then we know who's there and who's not. You could even make it come on automatically after a period of inactivity, then go away when someone shows activity, etc.

                                Thanks

                                    Put again the "Alert" icon where we can see what happened to our songs when we were not there. We will be able to see who voted, commented ... That'll be great.

                                    • Indaba Idol - An online Video American Idol with a 5000$ Prize and 50$ entry fee.
