Zero comments would not mean I hope that the band will not even be aknowledged and hence not qualify for being added? :)

Zero comments is nothing to be alarmed about on here - even if it does happen from time to time with suggestions for some sub genres. However, rest assured that the leader of the Prog Metal team will post a comment here in due course. He sometimes waits until he has a batch of bands/artists to add to add into his evaluation charts, and then deals with the posting of acknowledgements in the suggestion threads all at the same time. I have never yet known him miss a suggestion entirely though (which can occasionally happen with suggestions for some of the other sub genres).

Anyhow, if it will put your mind at ease, I have already added the band to the site that is used by several evaluation teams on here (Prog Metal team included) to track the status of their tasks in hand.

The 'overview' page is at http://progfreak.com/Atmospheres-166466.html, and once the evaluation starts, a 'PA' tab will appear to the right of the discography tab on this page. This, when clicked upon, will take you to the chart where the voting is recorded. Smile

^^ Indeed, thanks Dave.

We are dealing with some backlog and will add the new bunch of artists for evaluation shortly.

Thanks for the speedy addition, I see it's up on the site already.

Just a question though - in the "thanks to XY for the artist addition" part of the band subpage, "XY" would be the person who requested the band or is it the moderator's name who added it?

Cheers

^ The band was added by Special Collaborator rdtprog, who is a member of both the Prog Metal and Heavy Prog teams here. All four team members who took part in the evaluation voted 'yes', and the band was added to the site not much more than a week after the evaluation initially began. Good work Prog Metal team!! Approve Thumbs Up

No worries, I'm just asking as I've seen that to become a Special collaborator with time one needs to do a number of things, including adding a number of bands, and was wondering what that stands for, if in case of a band addition it is not credited to the person who suggested the band but the one who manually added it.

Long story short, is there a manual as to how to become a Special collaborator? :)

Yeah - read this: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=13080. Your question is the first one answered there, and this is more or less it...but 'the force' needs to be with you too. It sometimes just isn't enough to work your butt off for the site in the hope of being able to make it as an SC. Your face has to fit here too...even though in most cases no one can actually see it! LOL

Hi there

Special collaborators are members who have shown and proven their knowledge on prog rock - either through their reviews or through their many posts on the forum, and perhaps more importantly have worked their arses off for PA. It takes time and effort to get to that stage though. Before you get to that 5th star ie special collaborator, you need to have put in the work and shown that you have an extensive knowledge on the genre and furthermore can work together with other people/teams. Most of us started out as reviewers and then moved on to work for a sub genre team. I was part of the electronic and psych team at one point (now the two have melted together with Krautrock and Indo prog Raga Rock forming one big team called PSIKE).
If you are interested in all of this I recommend you start doing some reviews or similarly frequent the forum
