 Post subject: Fringes on last.fm
PostPosted: Mon Apr 23, '12, 7:23 am 
Following along the same line of thought as the recent establishment of a presence on Facebook, we also now have an official Fringes of Algo group on last.fm.

All of our members, or just fans of Phantasy Star in general, who use the last.fm service are welcome to join the Fringes group, which can be found here:

http://www.last.fm/group/Fringes+of+Algo

Thanks to Caged Wolf for the idea of creating this group. As most of our active members have probably noticed recently, our esteemed moderator makes use last.fm frequently. She suggested this might be another good avenue to connect with more fans of Phantasy Star.

It gets a lot more fun when you start creating your charts by downloading their scrobbler software. There's a link to it at the bottom of every page of their site. Or just click here.

For those wondering, last.fm is a social networking site based around music. You download their software, and it'll upload music listening data (artist, song title, album) to your profile and generate charts. Once it has an idea of what music you like, it'll create a radio station out of your music library - think of personalized pandora. They'll also send you free legal downloads, keep a list of artists you should like based on what you're listened to, and also recommend any events to you. All groups (like our fringes group) also get a streaming radio based on the music listening habits of all the members. The basic service is free, and you get a fair amount for it! There's also a subscription for it, but I'm not sure what additional services you get.

I think it's fun, myself. But in light of this announcement, anyone who's interested in joining and has questions, feel free to ask me.

Sounds interesting. I do love music. However, I'm not very familiar with the site and all I basically know about it is from reading CW's posts, signatures, etc. I might try exploring it a little further to see if I think I might like being a part of it, when I get some free time that is.

I do think it's terrific for the Fringes Of Algo site to be involved there and hope it does well! :clap:

It's pretty easy to get started - just sign up for an account and download/set up their software, then listen to some music on your computer/mobile device, if you have one. Takes maybe 10-15 minutes... the rest happens basically automatically. :) Admittedly, it's not perfect, but nothing really is.

Oh, anyone who has joined/thinks they might join last.fm, please friend me! If the Fringes group and its members listen to music generate collective and individual charts, it's a lot more likely we'll get some new members. :)
