We're devising a new system for how the artist leaderboard is computed -- we now normalize artist levels based on a wide range of metadata, which in turn helps us deliver a very accurate reflection of an artist's performance on thesixtyone.

We'll be closely monitoring the changes over the next few weeks and make adjustments accordingly.

Thanks for your patience! :-)

is this why we are getting emails congratulating us on our levels...the ones we keep leveling up on...but now many of us have dropped 2 levels or so....points went amiss.....on top of the songs being deleted....when the artists are not deleting them....will this be fixed? or did we once again lose points that we can't get back?

This site has been a big 'treat' in the life of indie artists..thank you for creating it!
Hopefully the frustration of missing songs and points will clear up shortly :)

I have a feeling that this might just be a point adjustment across the board. I went from 5203 points to 3850.

ROCK!

Ok, thanks for the information and THANKS FOR THIS GREAT SITE!

I hope my points return, I have gone from almost being at level 12 back to 8 and lost nearly 3000 points?? All my songs are still up so hoping the points will join them soon?

This is such a great site for indie artists who are unsigned also! I have been getting heaps of great feedback and spreading the word about thesixtyone to all the other musicians I know!

THANK YOU!

Peace, sunshine and chocolate

Dannielle :-)

From what I'm gathering here, points no longer equal the actual number of bumps an artist has received.

Will you be telling us what a point is equal to?

I Also notice that some of us gain points.
me myself I think I stayed the same, but fall from the leader board by far.

Is the new system taken account the number of songs uploaded and how much points each of the songs have? (maybe to elevate artists with only one song, but a really2 great song?)

i went up to level 4, with 316 points, when I actually do the calculation of bumps i get 158.

I'm not sure how fair this new system actually is. yeah i went up an entire level, but this new system seems to be a bit skewed.

perhaps you could describe your normalizing process, what metadata are you actually referring to?

the curious want to know!

My points have just doubled!I feel rather a cheat as I can suddenly upload a tune instead of deleting one which I'm not complaining about but feel rather fraudulent about.Sorry for all you other folks.

Out of curiosity, If bumps aren't all that factor into the level of the artist...what is?

Oh! I was trying to work out why our points had gone up when no-one had revived us.

(At least my first reaction was "the points have gone up" but now I can't actually remember how many points we had before so I might be wrong!)

Well then... this certainly changes things around, I've got past my initial 'WTF' moment now.

Certainly going to make things interesting for those of us who lost points/levels and cannot upload new songs until we get back to the level we were just at a short while ago.

So it looks like points no longer equals total bumps, but is modulated by # of listeners, and I'd bet # of plays. I'd also not be surprised if the "metadata" james refers to includes things like # of comments, # of playlist adds, even tuneboxes - anything that credits actual ears listening to the music in addition to the depth of love (reflected in number of bumps).

So no clue what the changes reflect...
Is this site run through Homeland Security? It sure is secretive at times.

If these changes mean less new music, I'm really sad -- I love hearing the new stuff, and now it sounds like a bunch of artists are a long way from new songs... Sadness. I'd love to understand why there is a need to limit artist uploads...
