  1. Banned Bands Commenting

    "Banned Bands" is an area where bands made explicit, or bad comments. The community has the "good side", and the "Banned Bands" side. Anyone over 18 can go to the bad side and see their ill reputed comments (so you never have to censor them). The bad side users just can't make comments on the good side until their sentence is up. This idea is rough draft.

    • Honest feedback

      Hoping you sincerely want honest feedback. Make it easier to navigate the website. It gets confusing to know where to go. Some voters expressed that they couldn't vote. Don't know why unless they were confused over navigation. Or is it that only submitters can vote? Just please be aware that anyone voting has to listen to the whole 6:45:27 minutes to judge fairly. And so listening to just 10 songs would take over an hour, plus time to digest and decide. 100 songs would take over 12 hours. Who has that kind of time?

      • Personalized Blog/flow on the artist page

        In my opinion Indaba music has come to somewhat of a stagnation recent years. It is now all about the LP and the contests are still coming, but I think there is a need for renewal and more features. My suggestion is to make it possible to create a blog/flow/timeline on your artist profile where, alongside with the artist's contest entries, you can put up posts about your current activities, start discussions, post links etc. The artist/user will administer the content themselves. It would be an awesome thing to be able to post videos and pictures for the artists to…

        • Followed Artists List

          Hi Guys,
          I thought it would be great to see a list of my followed artists because it is so easy to lose track of them if they are not very active on the site i.e commenting on posts or voting. Also it would also be helpful to see my sent messages in the site. Thank you

            • Listening Party Separation

              Make listening parties separate for genres, and make there be more incentive to be on them (like rewards for best of the week)

              • Judges Rating System!

                Song Rating's
                In ANY Contest, a judge gives a rating. From Sports contests to live competitions, if there is a judge, there is a rating!
                It really takes a toll on an artist to not win, and not know why. Especially when you know you have laid down a hit song!

                So I propose that Indaba implement a rating system for the judges. Each judge will rate the song they listen to, and if all songs are not rated, then the contest is rendered incomplete.

                Indaba I love you guys. But YOU MUST go to bat for your community or…

                  Add a message waiting counter. Right now besides getting an e-mail notification there is no way to tell if you have a message without looking.

                      • Indaba-contest idea

                        More feedback would be great.
                        Maybe in one of your original contests? I think very often there's one important reason that kicks a song out. Just a little hint for improving our music.

                        Another "Mashup the Loft" contest would be very nice, too!

                        All the best
                        - Michael
