    Editing descriptions


    What do we do if we want to edit the description of a sample after it's been uploaded?
    Like, I might want to add more description keywords that come to me only after I've submitted the description.

    Oh, and in addition to the search through the sample descriptions, have you given any thought at all to something like Technorati tags? http://www.technorati.com/help/tags.html
    I know they're more common for blogs, but might make sense in a case like this. If these sounds are truly to be free, that might be something to consider.

    More on descriptions...
    The main page says this:

    How can you help?
    Individuals
    In order to test our initial browsing code (which we are developing right now) we need a starting set of samples and descriptions of those samples. You can help us by supplying us sets of samples and text-files (with the same name as the samples) which describe those samples. If the recording is a bass drum, the text-file should say "bass drum", but if possible add more data: when was it recorded? With what microphone? What type of bass drum? Add as much information about the sample as you can!

    Are text files even necessary anymore? Isn't the description we enter in using the web form, the same as that text file? I would imagine that most users would just enter the description via the web, as a way of validating the sample they uploaded, as opposed to creating a whole separate text file. The text file way seems more awkward.

    Is this main page text to change, or am I missing a step somewhere?

    Thanks,

    it's out of date...

    I like the 'tag' idea, but it's quite hard to come up with a collection of tags yourself...

    Perhaps we can have the community add tags themselves, and then present the user with the previously used tags?
