Time to give this another go, after it's year hiatus.

The Coldplaying Mixtape Exchange is a fun way to discover new music while also giving you the chance to share music that you enjoy with other Coldplayers. Basically what happens is that you'll be given the name of the person who you will be making your mixtape for, and all you have to do is get together some songs that you really like, that go well together, and/or that your partner has most likely never heard before; but you must not let anyone know who you're making your mixtape for, and your partner must not know what exactly he or she is listening to - it has to be a surprise! After your partner reviews your mixtape, you will then get to reveal yourself and the tracklisting. You will of course be receiving a mixtape to review as well!

How this works?

1. Sign up saying you want to participate - leave your name on the thread
2. When the deadline for signing up is over, you'll get a PM from me giving you the name of another participant in the Exchange. You will be making a mix for this person, whoever they may be
3. You mustn't reveal who you are making the mix for, on pain of being tickled by a thousand feathers
4. Make your mix-tape (average length is around 50-70 minutes) and delete the info for each song. The person must not know what songs/artists are on the mixtape. Rather than just calling the songs 'Track 1', 'Track 2' etc you could be creative and make up fake titles.
5. Upload the mix-tape to something like MEGA.nz and send me the link and a tracklisting. I will then send it to the person assigned to you, keeping your identity a secret of course!
6. When you receive a mix-tape, listen to it, write a review and post it in this thread.
7. The person who made the mix-tape will then post the track-list and the link so everybody can download it. Simple as that.

Note: Please make sure before you sign up that you're actually going be able to follow through on this, or at least let me know before the deadline ends if you're going to be too busy to participate and you need your name taken off of the list. In past mixtape exchanges, several people never received mixtapes or reviews because their mixtaper/mixtapee never bothered to go through with it, and that's pretty inconsiderate to those who worked hard to make a mixtape and never got anything in return. Mixtape exchanges only happen a couple times a year so they're to be taken pretty seriously.
The deadline for signing up is September 30th 2018(GMT)and you will have some time to create your mixtapes in for 19th October 2018.

Here is a good guideline for deleting the song information:

The Song Information Deletion Tutorial

1. Find the tracks you plan on putting on your mixtape, and copy-and-paste them to a new folder, away from all the other stuff. You can either right-click and find "copy" and "paste," or you can use the shortcuts (Ctrl + C for copy and Ctrl + V for paste).

2. Once you've done that, go track by track, right-click, choose "Properties," and clear everything. Remember to change track numbers if you have a specific order (and almost everyone does, so...yeah). Also, it's helpful to name your album, even if it's something as simple as "mixtape." If you want, you can fill in the blank spots with fake information to add a personal touch to the mix. Once you've done all that, click OK. You'll have to do this separately with each track.

3. Move that folder into your iTunes library by clicking and dragging it into iTunes when it's open, and go through the tracks one by one and double-check everything. Typically, the one thing that usually needs to be altered if anything is the album art. In that case, just select your entire mixtape (either by going under "Edit" and choosing "Select all" or just typing your mixtape name and using Ctrl + A), right-click on it, choose "Get Info," and clear all of it using the options in that menu.

4. Compress your mixtape into a .zip or .rar, upload, and give the link to the head of the exchange. Looking forward to your involvement soon ;)

P.S: If I like your post mentioning you are participating the exchange, that means you will be on the list :)

I'll be uploading my mixtape of mystery songs either tonight, at the weekend, or at some point next week, but it will be for everyone to listen to and review, unlike the others that you will make.

Just a reminder that you can still put your name forward and I'll put it on the list :)

(my mixtape will be released when at least three participants put their name forward, if not, I'll close the thread)

Ok! Three participants so far! Due to the simple fact that my life is currently chaos (VERY busy) with schoolwork, personal work and other shit, I'll be delaying my tapes release date. I'll DEFINITELY be releasing my mixtape 'Futureworlds' at the end of this week for you all to listen to and review.

Thanks,

Jack

:)

also, just in case more people want to participate, I've moved the deadline for signing up to September 30th and the deadline for making the mixtapes is now October 19th.

Thanks again,

Jack

No need to ask! Of course!
for some reason it's not letting me, have you got direct messages/comments turned off or something? just wondering, as it's coming up with a message saying something along the lines of 'Not allowed to send message to yoyo2000'. @Captain Crieff can you sort this out?

No, I can get messages. And I can't remember me blocking you anyway :p. I don't know what the problem really is: unamused:

sorry I completely missed this notification somehow, no I don't see what's wrong. Can you PM other members? (feel free to try to send me a test message if you're not sure) Otherwise @Stephen will probably be able to help you better

Might this be a right solution to this problem? I'm not too sure about this but it has just crossed my mind...
oh yes that's definitely possible! I thought @yoyo2000 didn't have PMs disabled for anyone, it should say members only if you don't want any restrictions in any case :)
