Frequently Asked Questions
I uploaded a song but I have not received any reviews yet
It will take some time for your song to be selected during the random review. The more helpful reviews you write on others' songs, the more probable that your own song will be selected for random review by the algorithm. So, in other words you have to build some history and credibility before your songs are reviewed more frequently by others. However, the algorithm will pick your song even if you have not written any reviews but it will just take a little bit longer.

The ratings are:

4 (Like it. I'd listen to it again!)
3 (It was Ok. But wouldn't listen to it again)
2 (Sounds generic. Needs more work)
1 (Needs a lot of work. Keep trying)
What are the points for? What is the up-vote and down-vote for? What is reputation?
When a user reviews your song, if the review is well written and provides value, you can up-vote the review but you cannot down-vote it. Other users besides you can however down-vote the review if it is too harsh and/or offensive. Also, you cannot up-vote/down-vote a rating that has no comment in it but oly the score. Each upvote is worth +1 point and each downvote is -1 point. You build reputation based on these points. And once a user gains high reputation, they will gain privileges on the site, such as higher weighted votes, moderating privileges and other cool stuff. We are still deciding on the privileges. Users will also gain higher reputation if their songs are highly rated by others.
Can I search for bands and musicians in my area that are looking for other musicians?
Yes. Users can look for bands and musicians in their area using the Search menu. We will soon be adding new features on that page.
