A great new milestone for LetsSingIt: minutes ago the one millionth lyrics were submitted to the site. Whahoooo!!! A BIG thank you for all the people who helped filling the archive during the years.

[B]Back in the days[/B]

I remember the early days of LetsSingIt around 1997-1998 when I submitted all lyrics by hand. There was an email option on the site to submit lyrics. In the weekends I submitted the lyrics to the site that I received by email during the week. That was a copy-paste process one-by-one.

The number of emails I received grew rapidly, from a dozen to over a hundred per week. It was great to see more and more people were willing to help filling the archive. Apparently there was a need of a platform on the web where lyrics of various artists could be found. Around that time there was not such a site.

[B]Evolution[/B]

At some point I received so many emails in a week that it filled up my entire weekend to submit the lyrics. I checked options to speed up this process. I was around this time I started to use a database instead of physical files which provided much more flexibility, for example to add a form on the site that directly added lyrics into the database. I quickly noticed that submitting lyrics directly to the site was not such a good idea since some people used this lyrics form to express how much they not liked an artist. So the reviewing process was born where members could review newly submitted lyrics.

[B]Unique formula[/B]

Today the reviewing system is still in the same form. Newly submitted material is reviewed by either the moderator of an artist or (if the artist has no moderator) by other members. I think LetsSingIt is unique on this point. I don't know any other lyrics site where users of the site are responsible in such a way like on LetsSingIt.

[B]December 1st - LSI Contributors Day[/B]

To celebrate this memorable day, let's declare December 1st of every year as LSI Contributors Day!! On this day we put all of you that put time and effort in helping to build a better LSI in the spotlight. So artist-moderators, forum-moderators, chatroom-operators, help-moderators, charts-moderators, and all the users that edited content anonymously; thanks for the help!!!! Without your help LSI could never have made it to where it is today: being one of the top lyrics site in the world! And of course we hope you guys continue the great work!!

Ray

O, and if you're curious which song is officially the one millionth LSI Song:

Congratulations Ray!

And thanks for the look behind the scenes at LSI and the history & evolution of the site! Its been well worth it! You have a great site here...

By the way.. maybe too early... maybe you want to wait until the mobile conversion is completed , which would place it next year... but this site certainly could start thinking about garnering some of the Internet's awards.. i.e. The Webby Awards et al (Webbys are one of, if not the largest of such awards, but they charge entry fees, various other places don't)
Just a thought people....

Kinda funny how one of my submissions was almost 40 spots away from being the millionth song submitted - it's an honor to be that close, at least!

Really proud of this site - we're definitely expanding and I'm glad to contribute here.
