Website of the Quarter
@Technology & Internet
Music
Examples: Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio
Hosted by Endless and yours truly; if you have any questions or concerns regarding WotQ, please forward them to any of us.
Welcome!
Website of the Quater is a contest where, every three months, we get to nominate and vote for new websites depending on a particular theme, and choose a winner. Winner would then go on to be featured in our forum-splash. Without further ado, let's get straight to business!
Guidelines
Every quarter, we'll be having a set theme. All websites that you nominate must range within it, or else, they would not make it to voting round.
  • You're allowed to nominate your own website, but it's recommended not to, as it could be seen as advertising to some people.
  • Whenever a website wins, they would be added to Hall of Fame list for said year. Once they're there, they cannot be nominated again until next year.
  • All websites that you nominate must be appropriate; if they are not, they will not be counted.
  • Theme for this quarter is music, so all websites that you place here must fit that.
  • You'll be getting an emblem for participation, and if one of your nominations wind up winning, you'll get an additional one.
  • Nominations would last for about 21 days; to nominate, just fill out the form below and post a reply!
  • You may nominate only three websites per quarter.
Hall of Fame
  • Steam - May 2014 winner
Nomination
Website name: This is where the website's name should go.
Website link: Website's address goes here.
Description: This is optional, but if you like, you may give us a brief description of it.

    This is so an obvious choice.

    Website Name: Pandora

    Website Link:
    http://www.pandora.com

    Pandora is an application that requires internet obviously, but it's the greatest invention for listening to music. I feel like Pandora is a living thing because it knows exactly what kind of music you want at anytime. But Pandora not only lets you listen to the radio but you can also create your own playlist to play anytime!

    Website name: Spotify

    Website link: spotify.com

    Description:
    Spotify is a website that offers a wide array of music genres depending on your tastes, mood and needs. Need a playlist to start off your day with a bang? Some soft background music for your lounge parties? A few soothing tracks to send you off to sleep? They have it all. Also, based on what you're listening to, Spotify will recommend to you songs that they think you'd love. Don't know what you want? Let the in-built radio decide. You'll also be able to share playlists/songs that you love with other users from around the world from your best friend to Barack Obama, as well as follow users with playlists/songs that you can't get enough of. Who knows? You might even get a party started at the White House!

        Website link: vgmusic.com
        Description: It's pretty much a collection of MIDI files you can download from many games.

            The Winner Has Arrived!

            Name of Website: YouTube
            Website Address: youtube.com
            Description: Although YouTube's videos receive much attention, it also features a vast collection of music and lyric videos. One of my favorite features is the artist playlists that feature a list of songs by just one artist. I also enjoy watching the official music videos to my favorite songs and seeing the lyric videos various people have made and posted.

            Website Name: Shazam (more over the app, but the site too)
            Website Link: http://www.shazam.com/
            Description: Ever wanted to discover the name of your favorite hit song that you like to listen to on the radio day in and day out? Look no further than Shazam! Shazam allows you to transfer the sounds of the song into data that tells you the name of the song, the artist, and the album in which the song is from. It also gives you charts of the most Shazamed songs, giving you popular songs that people are listening to today. You'll never have to go another day trying to grudgingly figure out what a song is.

              Website name: Spotify
              Website link: Website's address goes here.
              Description: It's essentially the end all to these "radio" websites and mobile applications. One of the drawing features of these sites is the fact that you get to listen a radio of your favorite genre/mix of artists. Spotify takes that a step further, allowing you to pick exactly what songs you want to play. You don't get to choose every specific song, but you can rest easy and save your skips knowing the playlist will be made up of songs you hand approved. You get more skips in a smaller time frame. It's a little more expensive than popular competitors such as Pandora when it comes to their premium service, but it offers enough extra features to cover that. If you go with their premium, you get specific song selection, as well as the ability to download this music and play it offline, saving you valued data. Or, if the radio is your thing, you get unlimited skips for that feature. Personally, I find the radio to have better tuning features and a stronger variety. You aren't hearing the same popular songs and over, forcing to change between channels until you hope to get a good one.

              Hmm, I guess this wasn't an easy one to decide on.. I'd like to see a little more participation if that's okay with y'all. I'm extending the deadline for another week, so you guys have until Monday September 15th (or 15 September) to nominate any website in the category of music!

                Website name: Hype Machine [about]
                Website link: http://hypem.com/
                Description: Hype Machine is a tool for music blogs, and the music that bloggers write about. Picked from the sea of thousands of music blogs on the internet, HypeM brings a handpicked selection to their site for others to listen to and look through, as well as each blog from their listing of, currently, 817 online music blogs. Each sound post from these blogs makes it's way to the site to be favorited and listened to with respective links to sources.

                A tool for empowering the independent voices that write about music, as their About page says, Hype Machine helps both the bloggers and the listeners find and discover both what they're looking for and more, from the indie scene and up.

                It has many neat functions for sorting through what you browse and listen to, as well as following particular artists or blogs. I'll leave that for everyone else to figure out, if they are into this at all. I've enjoyed the site for many years now.~

                Website name: Bandcamp
                Website link: https://bandcamp.com/
                Description: A site for music artists and fans alike, Bandcamp is a music player for content uploaded by music artists from all kinds of backgrounds, experiences, and genres. Likewise, it's just as accessible to the fans to listen and to buy their favorites.

                With different options to browse the Discover section as well as a section down bottom on the homepage with a feed for currently selling tracks and albums around the world, you're likely to find something you like, and you're able to listen to all of it before you have to commit to buying it. (Or you can just listen forever in the browser or on you phone.)

                You can find just about all kinds of music on here, and Bandcamp has become more popular over the years, and has shown it by growing its site accordingly. (I also applaud them for their simple, yet neat smartphone application that actually caches music you play from your own bought collections.)
                You're likely to find many great albums that you like, sometimes for as low as $1. Though you always have the option to pay what you want, so long as you meet the price.

                Website link: https://rateyourmusic.com
                Description: There are so many listening websites in here that I thought I'd throw in something a little different. rateyourmusic.com is pretty much what it says on the tin. Outdated looks but that's about where the drawbacks stop. Probably the largest user-built catalogue of reviews and ratings on the internet featuring thousands of contributions from music enthusiasts who know what they're on about. Find people whose music taste you respect and add them to your favourites to see their reviews, ratings, and averages of their ratings before everyone else's. If the music you want to know about isn't on there you can just add it yourself. Also has active forums for discussing music. Pretty much the music enthusiast's secret lover (aside from one other website that probably shouldn't be linked here for legality reasons ;]).
