Hi @niuQuin brilliant we now have our own section thanks for sorting this I was also thinking of how we can be involved on the platform this very morning. Something along the lines that when artists upload there new releases if there is an option in there for musicoin verified dj's are allowed to use there tracks in there mix's with an auto payment distribution or sorts. This would also save artists having to have there downloads public and would make sure that the verified dj once proven there trust would be able to do blockchain only mix's.
Let me know what you think?
Or even if we have a system where artists can offer there tracks for download at say 25 musicoin or a fair amount depending on the current value where as musicoin verified djs will have free access to download these tracks and include them in a mix say during a month cycle if they do not honer this system then some kind of blacklist reward system so it is not abused kind of thing.
Sorry folks but I won't be doing another musicoin mix if it continues to be so difficult to upload a mix and allocate the licences accordingly.
Tried several times to upload but would get stuck on "confirming transaction". Had to do it a really ugly way -
1 - allocate 100% to me first just to get it confirmed
2 - tried to edit the licences with all artists in one go (didn't work).
3 - had to update each licence individually, subtracting the amount from 100 to me to 90 to me and 10 to the first artist.
4 - repeated step 3 until I got all artists on and licences matched.
This is not the way to do it and there are other blockchain music platforms out there which are far easier to use in terms of licences. It actually took me longer to do this all then it did to do the actual mix itself!!
If the new website makes things smoother then I welcome it but I can't keep supporting a platform if it's usability is as clunky as this.
I don't know if bands who have multiple members have reported licencing issues before but it really was difficult and frustrating.
If this is going to be revamped in the website upgrade that's coming then that would be great to know.
@zeljko-stanojkovski Hi mate - yes that's right. When I first uploaded the DJ mix and was on the "release" tab, it was just waiting for confirmation for hours, at least 2 hours as I left it to upload then went for a 10km walk!
So I then re-uploaded the mix and distributed 100% to myself and got confirmed straight away and it was on my profile. That's when I went through the process of updating/editing licence share.
The addresses I used were the wallet addresses of the artists (not the track wallet as @DeeJay-DarkStorm mentioned it previously).
@Nicky-Havey-0 That's really weird. Every time I test it works. There's no need to do it harder, it should work in a way that we enter wallet addresses and shares at "Distribution" tab prior to the track release. The only logical explanation would be that releasing a track was interrupted by site maintenance.
I would like to ask you to try releasing the same track once more just for the purpose of confirmation. Some days after this platform upgrade is finished.
@zeljko-stanojkovski Thanks for the feedback. When the website is fully updated I will upload the 2nd mix and let you know how it goes.
That was the only way I could get it to work but if this is due to the website going through an upgrade then that makes sense as it was Sunday 13th May (2018) when I attempted upload. I think that was when the website was going through an update?
Do you have a timescale as to when the platform upgrade will be completed?
@Nicky-Havey-0 No precise timescale as there are still some things that need to be corrected.
I tried it many times in past 24h and can confirm that there were certain issues at some time.
Devs will hopefully solve it soon.
Thanks for addressing it.
@zeljko-stanojkovski I appreciate the response on this and just seen your generous tip on the mix as well so thanks a lot for that!
You had some issues as well uploading and licence sharing too?
I hope the devs will solve it too as part of the upgrade, at least it's on the radar now
