I'm perfectly happy with it just being a fan-run thing. It's on the side, it's not making money (save for anything people want to donate) and it's still in its infancy. We JUST figured out how to get an auto-pilot running for when people can't fill their sets.
Eventually I'm sure this radio station will kick off and people will be fighting to connect and listen. ^^ We just need to be patient.
lol funny you should mention that Kait. when i was doing an update to the site recently, i stuck a load of pure pwnage banners up! quite a few people have talked about this becomming official and linked on the main site. Its a great idea, however the problem I see with that is the fact that it is still, in essence, a fan-run thing. if Geoff or whoever puts Pure Phonix on the main Pure Pwnage page, they would be flooded with all the other fan sites saying "HAY! PUT US UP THERE TOO!!" The PP Artchive and all the (probably) hundreds of other sites that are out there would want in, and there simply isnt enough room on the front page for that kinda stuff.
With that said, what they could do is maybe make a new page on the main site for "Affilliates/Official Fan Sites" or something similar, that has a massive list of all the sites. Would be a good place to post up things like Hak5, Winding Gears and of course Pro@Cooking too just a thought... may put that idea to one of the root admins later and see what they think
yes, anything that will play a .pls file will work, the favorite being WinAmp. You will then need the pls file itself, which you can find by clicking the "download" link just below the embedded player, or simple point your browser to http://listen.purephonix.com. Of course you can always use the embedded flash player on the site itself, as that works just as well and saves you having to install any programs lol obviously if you are having problems with the embeded player, give us a shout. im starting to get the impression that people dont like it for some odd reason and itd be nice to figure out why. any suggestions on that are most welcome
@Bryter: feel free to apply for a DJ position bro. best way to do it is on the Pure Phonix Forums
