    For those of us who listen to a lot of music on our computers... Here's the deal: you install a plugin for your media player of choice, then the Audioscrobbler plugin registers what songs you listen to and how often and you get a statistics page like this (mine):

    http://www.audioscrobbler.com/user/egj/

    ...so you know what stuff you listen to most often, etc, but the best part is that you can create groups, for example, if a couple of RC people would sign up, we could create a Royal Carnage group, and then after a while there would be group statistics that showed what bands were most popular in the group... Might be interesting, or not. Go ahead, sign up, or don't, see if I care. :loco: I like the idea though.

    This sounds like a brilliant idea. I'll sign up at some point tonight.

    Thing is, does this mean I have to start listening to music on my PC? OK, seeing as it's for scientific purposes.

    Early guesses for most common albums amongst us all?

    Ya, me too. After I got my speaker system for my computer, its been all played on them.


    Does this thing do this automatically or do I have to scan my media library for files??? I just register, download, intall, and wallah?? I joined RC too. I am BSW.

    Sorath / fooitkmbm should be a drill sergeant.

    I'll sign up so I can join the Cool People Crowd, but I listen to about 3 mp3's a month on my PC.

    Install the plug-in and it's automagical. I fear my list will be embarrassing when my younger brother has occupied this seat for a while...

    This is the second site in the past month that already has the username NAD taken. :mad:

    But LongDongSilver wasn't, so that's me.

    I'd rather be a my pals than take orders from someone I dont know. Seriously its a interesting idea, I just have no need to objectify my listening preferences into statistics or data.
