Coinsider the following.

Rules for band addition submissions to Prog Archives:


The following criterion needs to be submitted with each request:

BAND INFORMATION

A short paragraph with your reasons why this band should be added
Artist/band biography (usually found on their web site)
Country
Prog genre (This may be subject to change by PA staff)
Artist picture
Official Website
Discography (In a List style not in a Paragraph, Include line up and Year of release)
A group (5) of MP3 that give the best overview of bands sound in 128 bit stereo,mp3
Each Bio, Info, Pictures and Web Address:

Send the information an email with the bands name as the title.


MP3’s:

The songs file name must be = File name: [Band] - [Album] - [track number] - [title].mp3
Example: ELP_Trilogy_01_The Endless Enigma.mp3

Zip them up!



Email: [email protected]




If in fact the band we are talking about is Rainbow then you will be happy to learn that they have already been proposed and will possibly be voted on later.As always, we require as much info as possible and generally that includes the NAME of the band

 

THIS EDIT BY TROTSKY: Because this thread is old, there is some incorrect information that has provoked some confusion ... I am closing it and opening a similar thread with updated information ...Cheers!

Y'know, as hillarious as it is, I would really appreciate an answer - to both my questions.

Let me guess - Rainbow !!

People there have been a lot of different threads discussing band submissions ideas ... and the process itself has changed a number of times ... Seyo for example as a Special Collab is now able to add those bands himself ...

We do apologise for the fact that some personnel turnover caused a big traffic jam in band submissions and we do have 100s of acts to go through ...

Please submit your entries to this address [email protected]

Cheers!

Do we send the mp3s in 5 seperate letters? I tried zipping them, but gmail won't let me send more than 10 meg at a time.

Even if it were a higher quality, it has to be 128? Is it because of bandwidth that we can't send higher quality files?

Also...

What if the band disbanded and no longer has a site? The gutarist still has a site with the discography of all of his older groups, would that be suitable? Also, since that site doesn't have a bio, would a 555 word self written bio be suitable?

 Two syllables, 7 letters by any chance?

EXCELLENT!!!!
Custom Smiley Bloodrock:  Bloodrock III

                            Great hard rock band kinda in the vein of Deep Purple's first three albums and

                            older Uriah Heep.  At least as proggy as the aforementioned bands which are

                            included in the archives.

I assume they have hundreds of requests so they may need time to get around them all!!

I agree, what's going on with new bands submission? I sent all the details for Lone Star in September but haven't heard a thing. I've tried PMing some members of the submissions team but they don't reply. I appreciate they all have other work to do, but we should at least be advised of progress, otherwise people will give up making submissions.

eriksalkeld, I have been waiting since 1 October to see addition of the bio of artist Drago Mlinarec that I submitted, after a decent amount of time spent working on it.
Here is where it ended up:
Drago Mlinarec bio addition pending

There was Useful_Idiot saying "definitely prog" and no one else seems to care even to listen to that 5 mp3 I also submitted. There is obviously a problems with Band Addmission Team, I saw many members giving up - and other collabs, like me and you who are not able to technically add a band, are this way discouraged to continue making new proposals.

Hi, to whoever is in charge,

I sent all the information plus 5 MP3's of the band Vital Tech Tones nearly 1 month ago, I wanted to know if it is going to be added to the archives or if it haven't passed the test, and if that's the case, why not?

Autenticidad, actitud, pluralidad, espiritu e inteligencia, si es prog bien, si no, tambien.

Well, I'm new here (started today) and I'm still learning how to do all these things...

But, in my humble opinion, certain classic bands not yet listed like Wishbone Ash and Lindisfarne needn't any kind of introduction. They should be here since the Fiat Lux!

Ok, ok, I recognize I'm lazy (and old) but I'll try to include them, but I'll also accept any help or cöoperation from older members.

See you,

Could there be a list of those bands which have been offered for inclusion, but weren't accepted? It would save the time of those sending bands... Or is there such list already?
