Ping.sg is by Bloggers and for Bloggers Only

with 8 comments

We at Ping.sg have noticed that there have been an increasing number of commercial sites misusing the bloggers’ platform for their commercial purposes.

Sticking to our policy that Ping.sg is only for bloggers in the region, we have recently banned tens of sites, linking to commercial entities, from further using Ping.sg services.

This is done solely to ensure that the pings on the platform is still largely consists of posts, views and opinions by the bloggers.

We would also like to remind the Pingsters that you can also do your part in making sure that Ping.sg will always remain a relevant, vibrant and free community for the bloggers and by the bloggers.

To report misuse of blogs, please email us at abuse@ping.sg.

Thanks and happy pinging (and ponging)!

Join Rinaz’ Ping.sg Lipdub Project

with 8 comments

It’s going to be fun.

Quoted from the forum thread starter post by Rinaz:

Hello dear Pingsters,

With the Ping Anniversary Coming up, I would like for your consideration for a lipdub music video featuring none other but us pingsters!

Lipdubs are a type of video that combines lip synching and audio dubbing to make a music video. It is composed of filming individuals or a group of people lip synching while listening to a song or any recorded audio then dubbing over it in post editing with the original audio of the song.

One example of an awesome lipdub that I’ve seen is this one from the awesome Senior Junior :

http://youtube.com/watch?v=BtKAKKPZr04

Currently the music that I have under consideration is Amy Winehouse’s Valerie which is a catchy and upbeat and fun kind of music.

What do you think? Would you be keen?

I’ll elaborate more depending on the level of interest and participation 🙂

Be part of the Ping.sg Lipdub Project, sign up here!

And all the best to Rinaz for running it!
