Please join this group if you are interested in shaping YC and offering suggestions and criticism to help improve this community even further. As you all know, we've been through some development, and I felt the development didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped last year. As a result, I took the liberty of learning programming, and while it was a long and arduous process it paid off because I can implement your ideas on the spot now. As you can see, the network has been eliminated, and we are using one platform to power the community. This allows for a true integrated experience. Here is a list of our changes so far: Improved homepage General Homepage: real activity tracking, YC explanation, charts User Homepage: Tracks your habits in order to suggest new music and forum topic suggestions. Provides a view chart of your uploaded music by members only (no guests), updated in real time. [*]Improved Music Navigation There is now an easy way to navigate through music on the homepage. Powered by ajax, members can now peruse through works without leaving the forum home. Furthermore, new works for the day are annotated by a red notification. [*]Improved Uploader We allow linking to youtube We support multi-movements (both mp3 and youtube) We support pdf embedding via Google reader And finally, please read our upload guide. [*]Color Coded Directory Offers a faceted navigation, where users can drill down through specific categories in order to find specific music. Can narrow down the search by choosing specific composers via an auto updated autocomplete drop down. Red color indicates pieces needing a review, Yellow indicates pieces with 1-2 reviews, and Green indicates pieces with 3 or more reviews Pieces are ordered by latest comment, not by latest submission [*]Autocomplete Search Can search through music or forum. As a member types, an autocomplete box pops up to help aid the searcher. Music and Forum Topics are ranked by many relevance factors. Click the "search guide" to the left of the search box for search tips. [*]Comment Map If you are curious to see registered members who commented and/or viewed the works on this site, navigate through the comment map. Mouse over the box and wait for a popup to display. Green members indicate members who commented, regular text indicates viewers. Mouse over the names to retrieve a popup of each members list of works. [*]Similar Topics/Music A really neat feature added to YC recently is the similar topics/music module. When you create a topic or music file, similar topics will display to the right of the post. This is a great way to discover old similar topics that may interest you, or other similar compositions that may have gotten lost or buried. [*]Instant Messenger Our instant messenger allows anyone who is online the ability to instant message in real time. This replaces our pager, if you remember the site in 2005-2006. [*]Groups A great way to manage competitions and lessons is through our new groups module, recently added.
