when i want to like a song i just press the options on the mouse over the heart and tell it to open in a new tab. That way it will vote and i can see the rest of the page without interference. You can check it if you reload the page.

franksier, you can right-click on "VOTE" and open in a new tab. Then close the tab and you should still be on the same page.

7) Steve has said that there are 44K (thousand I suppose) people on the course - so far 362 (1 in 121 of people on the course) have joined this Group, and there are just 87 published tracks (1 per 505 course members) - I am wondering about the rest. (Seems to be limit on posting size - hence I've split this post up.)

3) I agree that being sent back to the front page every time I vote is tedious - has anyone found a way round this. 4) I find judging and being judged a slightly challenging learning experience. 5) I hope the everyone has realised that the ones on the right on the front page are just the current "top ten". 6) At least this is not a graded project.

1) I agree with what others have already said: to be fair, start from oldest and/or listen to them all. 2) The original stipulation was "vote for the ones you like the best". This raised all sorts of thoughts/questions about what this meant. For example, I think that "like the best" could be different from "think are the best", "think are the most original", "are the most original", "most interesting", "would play for other people" etc etc. Also, it still probably makes a difference what order I listen to them in.

Published a few minutes ago, and only took a few minutes. Also, I have recently discovered that increasing the buffer size to maximum *does* help the sound not to break up (Windows XP, Firefox, single core processor, 3 GB RAM).

Took forever (well, overnight anyway) to get anything published... posting two tracks this morning. Soundation continues to be quirky for me to work with.
