Hmmm...

Awesome idea, btw.

That's really pretty cool. I've had hit-and-miss results looking for musicians on the forums, hope this helps.

If you ever wanted to expand it, something like this for finding beta testers would be neat too.

Damn, this looks great! This'll really make the collaboration process a lot simpler. I see good things coming out of this! No more need to constantly bump a thread begging for a coder!

Holy crap, it's like you summarized my entire life.

This looks intriguing. If it works out, it could be awesome.

awesome thing, got responses really fast. All those new things should get exposure on the front page cuz after this news post goes away ppl will forget. ALSO i think it kinda broke cuz it shows only 1 announcement per page?

It went through a few hiccups while a bug got fixed! Didn't show up until a bunch of people used it :)

That tab has gotten too big so we gotta figure out what to move around... Like maybe move "Downloads" to the channels tab... We also have the Artist News link on the front page to view all of those, I wish I knew how many people used the dropdown for that. Right now it links to it from the individual portal dropdowns, as "Team Up!"

After this front page post is gone, how will we get to the Collabinator? Forgive me if I didnt see it in the text but I don't see it as a clickable option anywhere else currently. Will it be a button in the Project System, or an option under Community?

Goddamn, Shouldn't we step back a bit to make sure that both Swivel and Collabinator are actually benificial instead of debilitating? You guys may have hated what I said, but honesty and skepticism are better than blind faith.


I'm not impressed with the way things are going here.

How would Collabinator, an addition that aims to get people working together to make more content, be debilitating?
