We'll be defining guidelines on the quality of the content that we are trying to promote to the entire user base via FrostWire.
As of now, we're trying to reach a consensus on the desired trajectory of the artist in the case of bands. We don't want to annoy people with things that are way too experimental, unless they're irrevocably awesome. Since there have been so many submissions ever since we started promoting artists by so many bands, musicians, and wanna be musicians, we'd like these submissions from artists that preferably have recorded one or more full EPs with professional sound, people that are taking themselves seriously in music so that we can best use the promotional space on persons that might have a shot at making it big with their talent.
Since we believe in the power of communities, we'll start on these threads, and on all the email submissions to kademlia at frostwire dot com to make candidate lists. We'll then post 4 or 5 candidates everyweek on frostclick.com, we'll put music samples and brief reviews on these artists, and we'll open up polls for the community to vote on the next artist to be promoted in FrostWire.
As of now, we've tried to select great content and put it on the spotlight for enough time to get plenty of peers to seed their files, so that even if we take the torrent out of the tracker, they can be found with gnutella search (keyword based search)
So, let's hear it.
