New stuff for Music! We've added a Talk section, a page dedicated to Challenges, and made the Charts more obvious.
The Talk section

is something we've been kicking around for the past year or so. Where can musicians uploading music to MeFi talk about how they record, what they write songs about, and where could they collaborate? It doesn't quite work in MetaTalk because it's for a smaller audience and can quickly get too specific for the general site discussion that takes place here, so we made a new virtual copy of MetaTalk, but for just MeFi Music-related things on Music itself. You can post a limit of one thing a week to the Music Talk section.
The Challenges have been going well, giving people something to chew on each month and gracing fans of the MeFi musicians with tons of new material every month. The problem was, we didn't have anywhere to archive old challenges and show off the songs they've uploaded (each challenge has a player with just songs for that challenge). We created a dedicated page
and will be filling it with the previous challenges as we track them down (each month we were wiping them completely so it's hard).
We've always had a Charts page
, but it wasn't very obvious in the past, so we added that as a top level tab.
That's it, go forth and enjoy the new stuff.
