Need time to slow down or I need more hours in the day!

Everyone Gets Lucky on SingSnap!

Last month was full of love - so we're making this month all about luck! Brought back by popular demand are those neat and nifty little icons next to your name - but this time instead of hearts - they're lucky shamrocks!

This program will run from Tuesday March 6, through until Sunday March 18th - so the sooner you share your lucky shamrocks, the longer your friends will have them! If you're feeling lucky or want to share the luck with all your SingSnap friends - this is your chance to give the luck o' the Irish!

How To Buy Lucky Shamrocks!

1. Visit the Purchase Page.

- You can click on the little shamrock at the bottom of any page, or on the promotional banner at the top of the page.

2. Select the desired number of Shamrocks and 'Check Out'.

3. Once you're finished you will be re-directed to the Shamrock Distribution Centre.

4. Deliver your shamrocks and watch the luck spread!

Good Luck!

Am curious-
how much, if any, of the proceeds for these lucky shamrocks will be going to charity?

So many take themselves so serious here, jeez , it's just karaoke, nothing special about it

yes, where is the money going? Charity I hope...this site is very expensive, if the money is used to improve the site , great! If not, please donate these funds to charity

Our site has a very large pool of expenses. Trevor outlined in his video announcement what the money goes towards. This is a fun, optional, endeavor that goes along side membership revenue. So yes, Gold helps that too. =)

Things like this make it possible for us to not constantly raise membership prices and such and offer a little bit of entertainment, good will and warm fuzzies across the site. =)

With due respect, enough of these money-making extras .. I just want to enjoy Music here without the 'distractions'. I assume our monthly fees at set to cover running costs .. this new trend is annoying ... just my honest opinion.

AMEN to that (and I'm not even religious!)

One would think that if these funds are going to be kept "in-house" vs given to charity, that at a minimum, the recipients of aforementioned hearts or shamrocks benefit from it by way of discounts toward their next GOLD purchase. That's just my 2 cents on those $2 html codes.

If the upgrade includes the improvement of track quality I would be all for it but it's clear it wont' be because Singsnap's method of "keeping kosher with the copyright laws" is to modify the tracks by tweaking the timing and pitch and thus giving us crappy sound quality.
Unless Singsnap becomes more legit I won't be shelling out another penny for any cause and certainly not another manipulative marketing scheme like we all saw during Valentine's Day.

It aint April and I aint no fool...

no thanks Singsnap

Since we're talking improvements, I'd like to see the following:
*be able to actually listen to people sing- half the time songs won't load
*would love to be able to record a song without fear the mixer won't release it
*would love to stop being signed out mid-song or mid-comment! (I'm not the only person experiencing these difficulties since these "improvements" have been implemented.
just saying..

Well to be honest I dont think thats a singsnap issues. That is the issues on your half. Songs load well for me play well for me and I never get signed out. Get a better internet connection and stop blaming Singsnap.

I had these problems a few months back and I had been here 4 years and it turned out to be my internet provider, absolutley nothing to do with Singsnap.

Just like Singsnap changes so does your isp in its level of service.
I moved to a isp who didn't cut bandwidth and everything works perfectly now =)

If you're having issues recording, please send us a message to SingSnap Support and we'll be delighted to assist you there

The improved recorder is designed to make your recording experience better. We will constantly be working to make it efficient and effective for everyone. It does work for a lot of people but if you are one of those who experience trouble, please let us know =)

Thanks in advance for keeping this thread on topic.

Good Luck Everyone =)

We appreciate everyone's feedback on these tokens. We do understand your perspective, and I would hope that those who are critical of this endeavor will try to understand ours.

SingSnap isn't the type of business where the more people that purchase, the costs of 'manufacturing' the product go down. Just the opposite, in fact. Every week we add new songs, we are continually improving our technology and expanding our online capacity to accommodate the growth. Love or hate the songs, recorder, site - the fact is, we are continually expending resources to attempt to continue providing the most diverse, largest, and superior online karaoke experience for everyone.

To offset those costs we could:

A) Eliminate free memberships thereby reducing storage and bandwidth costs
B) Raise prices on existing memberships
C) Offer voluntary contributory items such as patron fund, sponsoring and hearts/shamrocks, etc.

We find C to be the most community friendly as it is not compulsory and it allows for our members to give something to each other while also allowing SingSnap to keep the lights on.

As far as anyone NOT wanting the token next to their name, feel free to contact us at SingSnap Support and we will remove any that were given to you and return them to the friend(s) who thought enough of you to purchase them for you.
