Hi,

I just realized there is something different on PA's home page.

In the right column, we can see some info about EVERSHIP, with bio, several reviews, music samples, various links...

Is this new? Is this temporary? Will it feature different albums over time? What's the purpose of this?

Thanks for enlightening me! Smile

^ In times past, artists paid a fee to be a featured artist. I'm not sure if that is still the case.

It looks very much like sponsored content. Oh well, if it helps pay the bills!

Can some admin explain the real reason behind this? Or is it just a glitch?

I mean, will we see this EVERSHIP promo on the front page for years to come? It's kind of annoying.

I liked that the MOST POPULAR ALBUM (last 24h) was one of the first thing to show. Now we have to scroll down a lot.

If one tells me it's there for a good reason, maybe I'll calm down... Ermm

I would imagine its still the same as it has been before, its a paid for position. If I remember correctly, I think it lasts for about a month.

So one week later, we have another promoted album on the main page: THE TRIAL by Alms.

It's a very recent album!

Do we know who is behind this? [email protected] maybe?
