In a recent post, several members suggested that having onboarding (HOW TO) videos would help new members. I certainly agree.

And who better to create such videos than actual Kompoz members? Want to help? I'm seeking members who can produce the videos from start-to-finish. We want you to produce these, because nobody knows the ins-and-outs of Kompoz like a real Kompoz member.

But we know this can be time-consuming, and time is money. So we're paying. We have a modest budget of $1,000 USD for the project. If we end up producing 2 videos, then each will earn $500. If there are 10 short videos, then each would earn $100.

I've created a Kompoz Group to get things started. The first step is to plan out the topics and video content. If you'd like to have some input, please join the group. I'm specifically seeking members who can shoot, edit, and narrate each video.

As an additional and productive idea, it would be good if videos were made in several languages: Spanish, French, Italian, etc. and not only in English

I agree Jean, everything being in english makes things more difficult for many. I hope we can find narrators for different languages, even if its for the same video as the english one, a translation would help.

Moosemind1   commented 5mo+6dy ago


Or short videos without audio and an attached text of what is going on in said video which can easily be translated to any language if even by the person watching and reading it using what ever translator they normally use.

Ok, I could offer to translate to German. I could do subtitles and voice over in German.

This site is not intuitive. How about you fix this site instead of asking others to make videos on how to figure out the mess you created! Step one...stop letting people link outside stuff to your site! Then members will be forced to get their "attention fix" by commenting on the tracks new members upload! My god!...only reason members are staying with your hard headed ass is because there is nowhere else online that is as good....that's not saying much! Look at all the closed accounts! Do you not have any friends with half a brain to confide in raf! You have been basically, beaten over the head by the past members to make you see? But you will not listen. PS...will someone gift me so I can upload WAV...

Good day to you too. How about sending specific suggestions for improvements? EDIT: Never mind. I just read you bio. Best wishes.

comment.user.userName

jannik   commented 5 months ago


I would have suggestions on fixes/improvements: - Fix the "Stats" tab. The right handle is initialized to start at the left side so one has to drag it to the right side to see the timeline. - Also include the name and time of people who download tracks directly to the computer as opposed to people who download using the download app. - Stop counting own plays and downloads on tracks. - Make an "enable download" button so that people can listen but not download unless they're a contributor. - Make a playlist function so that people can queue tracks i.e. to listen to a digest of recommended tracks, trending tracks or user playlists. :)

>- Stop counting own plays on tracks. Makes a lot of sense to me .. I would want to know how many times *other* people - listened. Yes, when I upload a track I do go and listen to it so I am sure the upload went well. If I like what I uploaded I could be playing it several times while I imagine what should be done next.

I run Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge .. and I can click on, and listen to, the COLLABORATIONS / Just Started / page 1, I can click on each project and listen .. but if I press (at the bottom) to go tp page 2 .. I can't play anything .. nothing happens when I click to listen to anything on page 2 or 3 etc.. click to listen only works on page 1 of COLLABORATIONS / Just Started /

raf read it now edit: I was very specific. My whole first post was very clear. I'm more than sure, other members with closed accounts read my post and await your response. Maybe liljoe6string can explain it to you. He seems to think he can insult your members right in front of your face and get away with it....hmmmm? I'm sure you read what he wrote?

Actually, is there a way to NOT look at all the closed accounts? They kind of bore me. I would rather know who's here. Maybe if they were dropped when closed, people would have to think about whether or not they want to keep leaving and coming back. I mean, I know it's great that it's as easy as reopening, maybe you can get all your stuff back easier that way, but it doesn't make commitment very attractive. People who close their account instead of just letting it lie dormant are trying to make a statement. Is it worth it to just let it sit there closed and discourage other people from staying, or showing people how easy it is to leave and come back?

comment.user.userName PLUS

xd238   commented 4mo+28dy ago


dropping closed accounts means also dropping all contributions/track uploads in the projects, the way it is implemented. probably not a good idea.. conrtibutions will disappear. i've got another issue related... more than a majority of the profiles linked in the daily k-day posts from AR1NDunne are abandoned (inactive) profiles. sure they are filtered to who actually did a collab, but if I were the site owner i might be wondering if those posts are good advertisement for the site. i mean someone is congratulating people that left the site. its basically saying "the best days of kompoz are behind us, and those people left" (but didn't close their account) so as a new member, i would ask.... hmmm...why did they leave? Personally I wouldn't want to advertise that most people lose interest in the site...daily, on the community page. but maybe thats just me... anyway, i just wasted 5 minutes typing what i think is a constructive suggestion, that will fall on deaf ears. what a fool am I...

Offbeat, what is so special about new members being encouraged to use this site. What is so difficult about learning how to use sync tones at the start of collaborations when we all had to learn that at some point. Surely if you have collaborated in the real world, loading instruments and amps in and out of venues and cars, not to mention gear obsessed guitarists who were in Steve Vai mode on every Idea you had,figuring out sync tones should not be that difficult. Talented, decent people are putting up videos to help new comers feel more at home on Kompoz, which hopefully means they will collaborate to others projects as well asking for vocals, lyrics and drums for their own tracks. Is the slight frustration of learning how to use sync tracks robbing Kompoz of a world full of Kurt Cobain's and John Lennon's?

BrotherRat   commented 5 months ago


Another thing that would HELP, Raf is .. The default 'kompoz page' is the collab page (https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaborate) This is the 'home' page. This is where people get default dropped when they log into kompoz. So it is the page from which newbies will start most of the time. The menu at top of that page is .. Kompoz / MY STUDIO / COLLABORATIONS / COMMUNITY / GROUPS (search function) bell and envelope. Why not put HELP between the search and the bell. Why? - because it is the page most newbies start at and there is no HELP there.

Got home about an hour ago, was bored in hotel room last night and y'all saved me; absolutely elated to be home. One of the most memorable moments is googling 'Breckenridge Colorado sucks' and getting a bunch of stuff to read... Bland food and self entitled douche nozzles everywhere. Estes Park was nice, highlights were nine mile dirt road up mountain in Great Rockies and a Chimichanga at Ed's. Both were slightly horrifying but here we are. Smoking a cigarette was a finable offense in downtown Golden. On the note of clean flix... When you load the front page and right there front & center "Because you were endorsed for"... For a rock drummer there is always bimbo pictures. Go to show family the song you're proud of and boom, boobs everywhere. I cuss like a sailor in person but it only shows lack of vocabulary in this environment.

It saddens me when people resort to foul language, name calling, and anger. I try to run a free open collaborative site. On a site like this, It is difficult to find the right balance between freedom and over-protective moderation. Please, Kompozarians, I ask you to think before you post. Self-moderate. This is your site. Thank you to all who clicked the "report" button.

Mister Raf you have all my support. You will not become rich with such a website for a niche and maybe you spend lots of money and time for your passion .You are a musician and you had a great idea, this is very rare people who pass from a simple idea to realize it. I feel that you simply try to do your best to do the better site possible and i can say as ancient project manager of several websites that Kompoz is very well designed and with powerfull functionalities. So don't listen the haters, listen just the nice songs made here because of your work. For the tutorials maybe there is a small cost way to do it. Just with captures made with OBS Studio and then recording after, a voice explaining ? Montage with Windows video maker and then on youtube. Again thank you for what you're doing for music. Phil
