invasion dream is now open to submissions! if you have anything that will help keep this site up to date, please send it to me! but before you do, please read the following guidlines:
I will only accept mp3s that you have made yourself, from CDs that you have bought, or that someone else has made and then given you specific permission to send to me. I will not accept mp3s that you have downloaded from the internet.
I would prefer to only have mp3s for bands that are already on this site, either as a featured band or in the random section. if you really think a band is great and that I should put them up, you are welcome to send me the mp3s, but I have the final say on what goes on the site and what doesn't.
although you are welcome to send me whole albums or whole singles, I will generally only put up a few samples from a release, unless the band is new and/or relatively unknown, or the release is out of print or very difficult to come by. I like to think of this site as a 'sample' site -- if you like what you hear, you go out and buy the whole thing.
I prefer mp3s to be in 128kbit format.
I prefer to receive my mp3s via streamload but will accept other methods -- see the bottom of this page for more info.
I will accept images for any band on this site, either in the featured bands or random section. you can also send me images for other bands that you think are cool, but I have the final say on what goes on the site and what doesn't.
I prefer fairly large, high quality scans. take a look at some of the images on this site to get an idea. please try to avoid very grainy images.
I will not accept images that you have 'tagged' -- that is, that have your URL or your name scrawled somewhere across them. all images on this site are free of that and will remain that way.
you can email images directly to me, however I ask that if you are sending over 1meg worth of images, please warn me in advance, and please send them in seperate emails, no more than 1meg per email. my email can be found at the bottom of this page.
I will accept lyrics for any band on this site, either in the featured bands or random section.
I will accept Japanese, romaji and translated lyrics. I will credit you for the translations, of course. however I ask that your translations make at least some sort of sense in English -- I do not like translations that look as though they've been made with translation software.
I realise some of that sounds harsh, and I apologise. I just need to make clear what I will and won't take. and if you've read through all that, and still want to donate, please, please do!
mp3s can be sent to my streamload account of 'isshi'. alternatively, you can upload them to your site or some such and email me with the links. I will let you know when I have downloaded them so that you can delete them again. if you have another method to send me mp3s, please feel free to email me and discuss it. but please do not email the mp3s directly to me.
images can be emailed to me directly, however I ask that if you are sending over 1meg worth of images, please warn me in advance, and please send them in seperate emails, no more than 1meg per email.
lyrics can also be emailed to me directly, either as attachments or in the body of the email. my email program is capable of reading Japanese text.
my email address for submissions is firstname.lastname@example.org
and if you support invasion dream in any way, know that you will have my undying gratitude for your help. ^_^ this site is nothing without the people who visit it!
