Some kitcheners did not receive the newsletter we sent out yesterday. I'm investigating why. In the meantime: here it is!!

Hi all,

Time for our October newsletter! Glad to have you all aboard!
Here's our headlines:

1. The first Kitchen Cover Competition is won by Mark Luto with his amazing cover of jurgen's original 'Just Words'!
It was an amazing competition, we never had so many contestants delivering at the finish line (15!). We also managed to collect more then 20 votes using our advanced 'Voting with points' voting system.
Rachel and Acoustic-Alice were declared winners as well, because their songs were covered most (both inspired other kitcheners with 3 songs!)

If you want to view the results (or the original discussion) visit this thread:
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/the-kitchen-cover-competition-2016-please-vote-for-the-winner!!/

We added the winners to the brandnew Kitchen Hall of Fame:
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/kitchen-wall-of-fame!!/

We posted the TOP 5 results (in winning order) on the kitchen SoundCloud page:
https://soundcloud.com/songwriter-in-the-kitchen/sets/the-kitchen-cover-competition
And we added the winner(s).

Congratulations to all contestants for your excellent entries, and of course big thumbs up for our winners!!

2. The kitchen's next competition has already started - Write a bizarre love song with a twist,in a genre that you've never tried before
Read this thread:
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/the-love-song-with-a-kitchen-twist-competition/
and join! We already have 10 contestants.
The competition will close the 31th of October at midnight, so plenty of time!

3. Invite new potential kitcheners/kitchenettes
To keep the forum interaction flowing we still need more kitcheners.. If you have any musical friends that fit the kitchener profile please invite them! You can search in your SoundCloud circles for example. Make sure the potential member is socially active, is not only showcasing him-/herself but also listening/commenting/liking/reposting other artists tracks... Most of the times it's a good sign when the potential member follows twice (and at least 100) as much SC users then the number of followers he/she has.
Since Soundcloud stopped with the 'Groups' feature a lot of SC users are looking for alternatives, and a community like the Kitchen might be their place!
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/life/soundcloud-about-to-stop-with-'groups'

Your help will be greatly appreciated and rewarded (at least with a lot of positive KARMA)!!

4. Kitchen Summit review
Dutch and Mar T. met in real life again a few weeks ago and they had a nice bootcamp weekend in a bunker. They shared some footage of the summit here:
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/life/filmclips-smuggled-from-the-administrators'-bootcamp-(part-1)/
There's also a part 2 and part 3 in the stickies of the 'Life' section of the forum. Go go see how insane our two admins are!! Everything for the kitchen!
Dutch and Mar T. discussed a huge agenda together. We'll share a few new developments:
-They opened up an 'Other arts' section, songwriters tend to be multitalents, so if there are drawers, painters, poets, sculptors, chef-cooks etc amongst us: share your other arts!!
-Welcome email to new members updated. It contains some info about what one can do in our kitchen to make a fast carreer.
-New members will be welcomed with a surprise from now on.
-Ajusted the 'A warm welcome to:' list in the top of the forum. New members (in their first month) will be welcomed there if they posted 3 or more messages and collected 3 or more karma points. Before they were showed in the list almost immediately.
We had lots of vision talk (based on issues/opportunities 'living' in our community) and a lot of that is still going on behind the kitchen scenes. Now and then a novelty will be revealed.
Dutch and Marti meet approx. 2 times a year so stay tuned for more new developments and silly video's!

5. Is Spotify going to buy SoundCloud?
Since SoundCloud is the platform that's used by 99% of our kitcheners we identified the risk that this might not be a good thing for us songwriters. Of course it could also be positive (when Spotify connects SC's artists to Spotify's listener base), but we just don't know.
See this thread to read more and find some alternatives : https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/life/spotify-is-about-to-buy-soundcloud

6. Did you already notice we introduced our Forum Guidelines?
You can read them here:
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/forum-newsupdates/guidelines-for-new-members/
They're developed in close cooperation with the community and the admins/mods team just for reference (we hate rules).

Let's finish this newsletter by welcoming our new members since the 1st of September:
bentou182, BLACK MIRROR, Jockenordlander, okarimba93, Marina Music Production, waffledaboywonda, Boarderlands, CaljMusic, reallife4, M57, Nick, Dara, BumbleWasps, DR3AM, Mr Sydney and Royston

Cheers all and we hope to see you around in the kitchen!!

Your admins,

Dutchbeat and Mar T.
