FAQ: General Questions

What's Gigulate?

Actually, we're sorry to admit that The Gigulator is really a small machine in the corner of our tiny London bedsit - scanning, crunching and sorting all the music information we instruct it to from across the web. We upgrade the Gigulator every day, so it just keeps getting cleverer. Seriously.

How do I get a Source featured in Gigulate?

The Gigulator constantly scours the web, looking for new sources of Music content. But we may not have found one you love just yet, you can submit yours, right here. We'll then review it, and add it - if it fits. We prefer RSS, but we'll scrape - if we have to.

I'm breaking stories and setting the News agenda! Why isn't my source ever getting to the top of the pile?

The Gigulator ingests and sorts Music information, and the more information you can give us, the better. So if we're just carrying headlines or short snippets of articles, we're unlikely to bother to follow the links to check the full article. Give us a feed of a larger portion of your feed and we'll index more of it, allowing us to understand it better.

Where do you get your artist images?

We use artist photos on our site that are taken from Flickr. We strongly believe in attribution and using only photos that we have permission to use. Therefore we only take photos which have the following Creative Commons licenses applied to them: Attribution License, Attribution-ShareAlike License, Attribution-NoDerivs License and No known copyright restrictions.

If a license on a photo changes our automated process (which runs regularly) will detect it and if the new license means we cannot use it, we'll instantly remove said photo from the site.
