Hi everyone, I've been away from Kompoz for a while, and now I'm wanting to get involved in a few collaborations again, but I'm really struggling to find collaborations. Or maybe I mean, I'm struggling to find a way to find collaborations! I can go to "Collaborations", and I get "Recommended", but there's not much there with anyone looking for Bass. If I click "Bass" to filter, it doesn't help, lots of things in there still aren't looking for Bass, and probably I want to look out for new-ish stuff. So I thought "Recently Listed" would help, but I can't work out what that means, there's things in the 1st 4 results that are 6 months old, and again if I Filter by "Bass" I still get lots of things that don't need Bass. Then I noticed "New collaborations", so I thought that would help, but you can't filter that by things that need Bass. I can't get Advanced Search to do anything useful either. And if I do go through manually looking for stuff (which is crazy, this is 2015) there's nothing to help me keep track of what I've already looked at. So how do I find stuff to work on? I feel like I must be missing something, cos it definitely shouldn't be this hard. Help! :)

Hello Adam. If you see projects with no bass track or no bass in the mix, then just upload your idea to the project. The search thing isn't the best but how I used to search was by using the activity stream and seeing who has put up the newest projects. That way you know they are active and they may be asking for a bass track.

Yeah, it does seem like the activity stream might be the best way there is to spot new stuff, it just means going in to every song to see if they're after bass.

Yeah the new search system doesn't really work as intended IMHO. You're supposed to be able to click the little arrow next to the talent(s) it lists for you at the top, then click genre and it return projects that need it. The most recent tab is supposed to return the latest projects that need it. It seems to return random projects somehow. I think the previous search system worked much better although if they got the bugs worked out of this system it might work well.

Yeah, hope they can get it sorted as the actual collaboration stuff works nicely.

As for monitoring what you have looked at, I realize you are likely alluding to some visual que that signifies you have visited the collabs page. Thumbtack- I use the folders "Lists" to save collabs into categories based on interest and age then thumb through each list.

Yeah, that could help actually, I'll give it a try.
