Ok, so the group is coming along nicely. We are now adding more aspects to the group so members have other things to do other than just wright music reviews. We already have a few roles, which are main bloggers, and selected bloggers. But for the main blogger aspect we didn't really have a way for people to apply for it, or get anyone on the list unless we hand pick them ourselves. well, as the group gets bigger, that's going to become more difficult. So, we wanted to come up with ways to ease that process. So, this journal entry is for the sole purpose of introducing roles, explaining the different gallery categories, and how to become a main, or selected blogger.
Main blogger - This is for members who are ahead of a genre, who want to be listed as a main blogger. To get listed as a main blogger, wright an introductory journal, explaining one of the genres you are ahead of, and in your own words, give a brief summary about when the genre started, what it's all about, what bands/artists influenced it the most, or help the movement of it, your top five musician of the genre, and a brief introductory of who you are, what the genre means to you, and why you wanted to write for it. Name the journal,"introduction to "blank". Replace the blank with the name of the genre. Then, submit it to the group's feature folder, and if the group agrees with you being a main blogger, the group will then send you a note listing you as a main blogger. more than one person can have the same genre.
selected blogger - Anyone who asked to be in the group, along with saying which two genre they want to wright for will be listed on this list. If you do not see your name, please send the group a note, asking to be listed, along with saying what two genre you want to wright for. members will also be listed if they have specific jobs other than writing reviews. More than one person can be listed for the same job.
music dairy - This folder is for all members. Mostly anything can be submitted hear. from telling about how you got to see your favorite band at a concert last weekend, To how every time you hear your favorite song, it makes you want to cry, or reminisce about the good ole' days. You can also submit song reviews to this folder with the rules being as strict as submitting to the main folder.
Cover songs - This folder is for all members. It's the same as when you're doing a review for a song, expect this folder is only for cover songs.
Lyric reviews - This folder is for all members. This folder is for song meanings, and just lyrics on general. If you wish to be in charge of finding lyrics to song reviews already in the group, then send the group a note.
Featured artist or band - This folder is for main bloggers only. The group hasn't completely decided what we're going to do for this folder, but we were thinking we would feature musician hear on DA who join are group. How to do this is still up in the air, if you have a suggestion about what we could do with this folder, note the group and tell us. All ideals are welcome.
Music genre - This folder is for all members. This will be main way for how people will find other bands/artists to listen to. Members can write a blog, making a list of bands/artist for a certain genre. It can be any genre, but only one at a time. The list can be as long as you want it. All the bands/artist must be in the same genre, or have a similar sound to each other. The having a similar sound is all up to your personal taste, and opinion.
Music news - This folder is for selected bloggers only. The purpose of this folder is for music news. Anything that's happening in the music news world can be submitted here. You can send the group a note if you want to be one of the bloggers who are in charge of keeping this this folder up-to-date.
Album reviews - This folder is for all members. you use the same method to how you would review a song, but instead review a whole album. They are examples already in the folder if you need a example.
