The Rules
« on: January 06, 2011, 11:29:24 AM »
This board needs a sticky with the core rules to the show club and, as they've already been written, here they are:

Remember, if you sign up, YOU MUST REVIEW EVERYONE ELSE'S PICK.
If not, I will skip you and everyone will laugh at you.
Then they will point at you and then send you a steaming pile of shit in a padded mailer envelope.
This is SER BIZ.

How to upload your show in mp3/m4a format:

1 - Assuming you have your pick on CD, rip the CD onto your computer.
(I use iTunes or Winamp to rip CD's) >>>

2 - Once you rip a CD it will appear as a folder on your computer. You now need to zip this folder. By zipping a folder, you take the contents of an entire folder and make them into one file, thus making it easy to upload.

3 - I use winzip to zip my folders.
http://www.winzip.com/downwz.htm
You can download the evaluation version (trial version) there which is good for 30 days.
You can also use winrar or stuffit to zip your folder.

4 - Once you zip your folder, you will need to upload the zip file you just created.
I use sendspace to do so.
http://sendspace.com/
Just follow the instructions there and choose the zip file you want to upload.
Depending on your upload speed, this can take anywhere from 2-30 minutes.

5 - After it successfully completes the upload, it will generate a link for you.
Use this link in your post when it's time to post your show.

6 - If you download someone's show in mp3/m4a format and need to unzip the file, the three programs above will unzip it for you, as well.

Remember that you are responsible for uploading your show in lossy and lossless format.

Have fun!
a

Be sure to check the show you want to post against the Show Club Master List to be sure that it hasn't been done before. If you fail to do this and post a duplicate, you will be brutally mocked.

Folks who are not posting shows in the current round are also welcome and encouraged to post thoughtful reviews. They should, however, refrain from flaming posters for their picks.  If you don't like the pick, stfu and come back next week. 

Enjoy.

Do we really still assume you have a show on CD?

you want mine? i got about 7 books of coasters here in allentown :-P

and you forgot to put in the most important rule RJ

if you pick a 2.0 show you will be mocked, and if you pick a 3.0 show you will be immediately banned from the board.
It's like BJ Galore over here!


I use records for that and don't have to justify it to my friends.
