I don't have a lot of spare time these days, so I mostly send my brilliant (and difficult) ideas to Dave to figure out how to implement, but here's what's on my hit list. I'll go ahead and say "you're welcome" in advance. :)
  1. Blogs: There is supposedly a way to make the blogs appear in the latest list on the right. It's likely to break in some way, shape, or form, but I'm going to try to implement it. This stuff is harder than it looks....
  2. ProfilePlayers: Dave is going to activate them soon. They worked when we tested things previously.
  3. Front Page Player: I think I can make this work, and it will be something that should work on mobile. The player should be easy, but the playlist bit takes some hacking of the perl scripts that have previously created the playlists. Luckily, if I can't figure it out, we have Marz. I think we can make this work.

There will be more. Be patient. Say thanks more than complaining. Please. Trust me.

You're welcome.

In the end we all still get to record our music and I imagine there will be a way submit at the end of the month. Website and all of its features are just a bonus.

The first year we did all of this, it was a piece of paper sign up sheet and you had to physically bring you disc to the wire. My experience that year was still awesome and still accomplished.

You do good work around here Tim; we all greatly appreciate you and the team you work with! Patience will most certainly be given

Thanks, Brian. I'm interested in what the HQ folks come up with for submissions this year. I have some ideas about how to save/archive the data, but it won't be via the jukebox/jukebox uploader. That beast won't work post-rebuild.

Profile players are active. You can test it by listening to a song on my profile. :) This was far more difficult than it should have been, but I have some faith we can make a latest demos player work now, either on the front page or somewhere else.

The blogs are being difficult. I've made the systemic adjustments to get them working correctly, but something is wrong with the categories, so publishing doesn't work. That would seem to be a problem. As for now, if you can publish a blog post, I've reverted to the old system, which is the one where I can't get a list of latest posts.

Can a couple of you upload songs to your profile players? I need to verify that your songs post correctly (tell me in this thread...) and I'm working with a "latest uploads" module and I'd like to see if it's working. If you'd like to see it, go to rpmchallenge.com/index.php/2018-participants . It's at the top of the page right now as a test.

Thanks for working so hard for all of us, Tim. I clicked on the upload on my profile player to test it and I got this page:
