Yeah I think having a deadline kinda helps to keep things moving along - even for the informal community projects. It makes more sense to come up with a fun idea - like the white noise comp - and close it after a month or two and have the person who started the thread collect all the tracks in the OP. When they stay open ended for too long they begin to feel like a ghost town.

Maybe this isn't the time for it & we can chat about it later...but I think it's maybe also worth considering setting up a bandcamp/soundcloud/youtube etc. in which to compile all the entries for a particular project (for things like the white noise comp). It sucks looking back over some of them and finding the majority of the submissions have been removed. I like the idea of an inspirational archive that's always there...always accessible.
