News of 1998

* December 10, 1998

We have surpassed 900 personal reviews! I have added statistics to the top of all the letter directories and all the artist pages so you can see your average rating on the modarchive. The 8th edition of The Top 10 Additions is up. Look forward to a bunch of add ons to the reviewer tables at The New Crew page. New columns such as review quality, average reviewing score, and personal reviewer webpages for the top 10 reviewers will be added shortly.

* November 27, 1998

We have surpassed 400 personal reviews! I have also added a reviewer of the week, and we are still in need of more reviewers. The 7th edition of The Top 10 Additions is up. The modarchive now has an irc channel at DALnet called modarchive. I will be on there most of the day.

* November 17, 1998

Lots of news! We have added 10+ artists, Beatbom has provided us with the 6th edition of the top10 additions. For all you reviewers, the reviewing form is up! (thanks to Zigg) You now no longer send me the reviews over ICQ. These forms automatically write the reviews up on the pages! See me about reviewing userid's and passwords. We still have a need for reviewers, so email me to apply. Finally a new contest is up for modarchive, we need a theme song! We are looking for creativity and a fun, great song. Upload it to the new directory as usual with the filename beginning with compo to enter. Please click the modarchive banner to help us to continue to improve the archive!

Once again all the unfiltered uploads have been reviewed! We are now starting the personal reviews. You will see an update in the music tables with a new column called review. The score of the song will appear there, and upon clicking the score you will link directly to the personal review for that song. It will take quite awhile to do personal reviews for 3700 songs, so the more reviewers the better! Email The Modarchive if you are interested in becoming a reviewer.

I have decided to start our huge project of giving every song a personal review as soon as all of the unfiltered uploads have been reviewed. This is a big task, and the more reviewer's we get, the better! So sign up to be a reviewer here. Check out this preview of the rough format we will be using.

You will notice a new "Shout-Ads" banner on the main page. PLEASE click this banner every once in awhile in order for us to keep updating the modarchive, maintaining the artist pages etc. Also depending on the response of this banner, the modarchive will be initiating a bunch of new projects. These projects include adding music genre/style to all the songs, giving a personal review to EVERY song in the modarchive, and starting a new music competition besides the top10! I will put up previews of each of these projects shortly. Thank you for your time!
