Any interest in a What are you listening to Topic?

Post by DynamiteTiger » July 15th, 2017, 3:11 pm

In my last community for a few years running one of the most popular topics on the forums was a What are you Listening To? (WALT) topic where members would post YouTube vids of songs they were currently listening to or favorites they wanted to share. Eventually, by the end of the year, the YT playlist had hundreds of songs. It's was a great way to hear different music than what you normally listened to. I would love to see that here in CCgaming, but a Christian playlist of course. :)
Example: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... X1keQxOgvN

Ideally it would be best to create the playlist on the CCgaming YT channel and then give access to select trusted members to add the songs from the topic to the official YT playlist using the playlist options as shown in the image below.

I'd be willing to help organize this or help if someone with authority wants to take it on. Some rules that would apply to the topic would be:
  • Must be Christian Music
  • Whenever possible, only use official music videos. (Unofficial ones, in most cases, get taken down eventually leaving the playlist with broken vid links)
  • When posting in the WALT topic, add the Artist and Title in text with your YT link (in case the YT vid is missing this makes it easier for admins to find a replacement)

Why create a playlist? Why not just let people talk about this stuff in this forum section?

Don't missunderstand me. I am litteraly asking why someone would want a playlist not arguing against it. What is the value of such a thing? I need more information. I have never in my life used a playlist so I don't know why I should want one. I am an old uniformed man. Sell me on the concept.

The playlist provides hours of non stop music. Many gamers like to listen to music on their pc while the play. A YT playlist provides that. It can also be a Spotify playlist but its not as versatile. You can set it to play in order that songs were added or even shuffle it if you like. Chances are youll also learn more music.

I think this would be a cool idea. I would be fine with either, since I actually have Spotify, so I would just be re-creating the playlist for when I want to listen. But even though I wouldn't listen directly, I would likely contribute at some point :P

The coolest thing I think about this would be learning new artists. Because let's face it the Christian music scene doesn't get much exposure except from the typical top 100 Christian music stations. There are many Christian artists that we never hear about.

As I mentioned in the first post, is this something that CMs would create and share on the CCgaming YT? If not, I'm more than willing to start and maintain the playlist on one of my channels.

I think this sounds awesome! I also have Spotify so that would be okay for me as well. The advantage of Spotify over YT is that there are several songs that don't have official music videos. This would be problematic if the song you wanted to share didn't have a video for it. But, either platform would be good with me!

DT, I think I may add this to the agenda for this week's meeting, and see what the overall thought might be.

We like things like this to have a bit of traction on the forums before we bring them up at meetings, but I really can't see a downside to this idea, whatsoever. Apologies that this idea has 'sat around' for a bit, but there's been a LOT going on lately.
