Be Audible handles "distribution and promotion of your music - free Weed encoding service. beAudible.com will facilitate artist control, and we believe that artists should have the chance to sell their own music. One week after you initiate contact with us, you can be selling music from your own website!" -Sigmund Elias Holm.
The contest ran rather well, though there are some improvements that will be applied to the next contest. Link Wars Two will follow the same rules, including the change to site submission: new sites will be allowed to be submitted and approved during the contest. When new sites are approved by the Paradice Net staff, information about promoting your link on Paradice Net will be sent to the user submitting the site. Site submission requires user registration for free on Paradice Net.
Be Audible has won two autographed albums of Louis Lamp's debut album, An Open Mind. In addition to this, results of previous contests affect the outcomes of future iterations of Link Wars. From now on, Link Wars will always be going on, with winners being determined at the end of each month, provided that the administrator or a qualified representative can make the judgement.
Paradice Net reserves the right to change the contest rules at any time. If a tally cannot be taken at the end of the contest due to acts of God or the U.S. government, they will be taken at the first available opportunity. Link Wars Two is now in progress and will conclude at the end of June, 2005.
