If you want to join, you first have to go to http://groups.msn.com/Chartgame
and sign in at the topic "sign in"
You need to fill in this form:
Artist name: The name you would like to be called in the Charts. You may also choose a group name, just be creative!
If you pick a group name, then you also have to give the members of that group.
You also may give the artists an age, characteristics, etc.
NOTE: The name doesn't have to excist, you may choose one by yourself.
When you are ready doing that, you have to go to "new releases".
There you can make up your own song. You just have to give a title, a genre, and a short description of the content.
Then your single will be released in that week.
Every new person starts with a budget of 100points.
Every week you have to send me an e-mail with the number of points you want to put in. For example: first week 15points. Then the next week you have still 85 points. Those 15 points are the points that will give you a ranking in the chart. When someone else has given his song 20 points, and another person has given his song 10 points for that week, you will be number 2 in the Chart. Because your points are less than 20 but more than 10.
According to the position you have in the Chart, you get new points for your next single. So if you spread your points well, you get much new points, maybe more than 100, so your next single will be bigger than the one before. So you can become a world star! ;-)
You can release a new single (with the points you collected with your last single) 10 weeks after your last release.
Good luck and have fun!!!
If you still have questions, just sent me an e-mail and I will help you.
First I go to "Sign in" and fill in the next form.
