MUSIC SHOWCASE GUIDELINES (Mainly directed at TIMGUL users)
« on: April 29, 2012, 12:14:18 am »
Dear Omnimaga and especially former TIMGUL members,

I would just like to remind of some guidelines about music showcase on the Omnimaga website. Although this is not a problem for the average Omnimaga members and that the team is generally lax about the music section, TIMGUL had no actual written rules for uploading songs as long as they were uploaded in the right category.

1) On TIMGUL, the file upload limit was 8 MB. On Omnimaga it's 1, due to extreme disk space constraints and due to the large amount of files getting uploaded elsewhere on the site already. Youtube, Bandcamp, Mediafire and Soundcloud are recommended for hosting many songs.

2) On TIMGUL, you could upload remixes of copyrighted songs as you see fit. On Omnimaga, any remix, mashup or mix that contains copyrighted material, such as vocals or samples, must be uploaded externally (such as the 3 hosting sites mentionned above). This is to avoid DMCA, cease and desist letters and site takedowns, since the site has higher Google rankings and that stuff could be found easier by labels.

3) Also, on TIMGUL, most members ranged from 25 to 40 years old, so it was more lax regarding NSFW content. However, most Omnimaga users are under 18 and under strict (sometimes dictatorial at the limit of legality) supervision from their parents. Profanity is allowed outside topic titles, but we might want to avoid stuff like this here.

4) To upload in the other Omnimaga music download section reserved for members, you need staff permission and I believe it's reserved for people who either has colored nicknames or have at least 1000 or 2000 posts. Other stuff goes in here.

Of course things are generally lax around here if people remain nice and constructive, but I'm just making sure no confusion happens :). Sorry if this causes any inconveniences by the way.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Wow that's a good summary, though it does remind people just the differences between the two sites and that we lost a lot by closing TIMGUL and merging with Omnimaga.

Yeah the data losses really hurt TIMGUL over the time.

Normally there should be roughly 1500 songs to listen there, but I think only about 600-700 attachments remains now. Of course there are a lot of file links so those might still be fine.

There were many big data losses really.
-2009 drama caused many musicians to ragequit and delete all their songs over the time (although some left without deleting anything)
-Later that year, we lost about 4 months of posts and music (although some got reposted)
-Also, plenty of files got corrupted (half of the music) that year
-Now 2 days before the closing, we lost almost one year of music, although the site was almost dead so that's not a lot I think.

That's sad, I still visited there a few times.
And all those file attachments too...

^This URL. However keep in mind that a massive data loss occured in April, so every uploaded song (unless they were links to other sites) from July 2011 to April 2012 were lost.
