    If you dont know about the Hive project see here:

    What I was after as we are making this a private/invite only network, what criteria should we set for people being allowed in.

    A few ideas:

    Producers only (should we include dj's/distributors etc)

    Minimum share for entry (dont want any leechers maybe a min 50 meg share?)

    Should we only allow ppl with Broadband or better connections considereing potential files sizes, i.e. high quality mp3 prob looking between 10-20mb file sizes.

    Bear in mind we want to have collaboration/feedback on dubs/unfinished files and samples, so keep this in mind when thinking of suggestions.

    Elitism is not what being selective is about, is making sure we dont just get people that leeche, only people that are gonna contribute and make this work...

    2gb... hmm, lets say high qual mp3 on average track about 15mb

    would be 133 tracks which I think is a little unrealistic....

    Remember this is for sharing material created by the artists of the hub only, no illegal warez/other artists audio... I know there will be other types of files like samples, documents etc but I still think 2b is a bit high.

    But this limit is something we can work on as we go....

    Any other suggestions...

    I spose im more looking for, when people apply to join what sets them as a reason we should let them in the hub....

    Or are we going about this wrong, should the emphasis be on them to give a reason why they should be let in and every applications judged on its own merit?
