this is really an aggravating circumstance i am dealing with on icomps. every time i do a collaboration with someone, i try to add his/her moniker with icomps and get ZERO names when i put in their exact moniker. it's a bit daft, nah?

i am ONLY A VOCALIST for pity sake. i want to show EVERYONE that is a helluva lot smarter than i am as my collaborators. but i only get a NADA-doing in your add-collorator, and end up having to post as my own name and "a nonny mouse." makes me really sad. i have to put in the bio that the GUI on icomps will not allow me to give credit where credit is due until -- it seems -- approximately 48 hours have passed. then and only then does the "search for collaborator" allow me any choices of the moniker i type in. i use chrome and windows 10. thanks.

Just as a reminder (I know we've talked about this already):

To add a collaborator that is an iC member, on the Edit page of the song or at upload time on the Upload page:
• click “Me and other iCompositions artists"
• click the little + sign below the box
• type in the member’s name in the box to the right
• click “Search”
• click “(add)” when their name shows up under the box

Repeat if there are other artists to add on the song.

thank you for your response. i have done this EVERY TIME to no avail. i can send you screenshots proving this next time it happens. i click on "me and otehrs," then i click the little plus sign. then i type in the member's name in the box to the right. THAT is where the problem is. that box to the right where i put in the moniker does NOTHING. no reaction AT ALL. thus there is nothing that i can search for, as it gives no list. therefore i cannot click ADD as there is nothing to add. period end of statement.

my view looks like that except -- the ARTIST on the left of the red circle is shrunken -- you cannot see "no collaborators accepted) -- and -- in search for an artist, which you have circled in red, tho the box appears in full length, i type in anything and get absolutely NOTHING that comes up. NOTHING. it is empty no matter what i do. and thus it does not allow any selection. thus nothing appears in my "emma peel" subheader to the title of the song except "anonymous." very very grievous to me.

hey ms dorothy!

what happens is that i seem to be able to add them after about 24 to 48 hours of posting the song. for the first nearly full day or more of posting the song, all i get is what i put up on the posting board earlier today in response to becwil's question in which she captured my problem areas with a red circle.

i don't understand why this happens, but i MIGHT have found a way around it.

unless it is a coincidence and it was just that enough time had elapsed since i posted it, i was able to do this on my phone before i went to bed last night. so next time i post a collab work, i will have my phone beside me to see if i can make the change more quickly. not positive, but it looks like that might be a solution.
