    A note to our TasteMakers!

    A note to our TasteMakers!

    Dear TasteMakers, unfortunately we have discovered that MAKES for some campaigns were manipulated. We will remove these manipulated MAKES from your total MAKE count.  Please do not attempt to manipulate the MAKE count.  We routinely check the validity of all data on MyMusicTaste to ensure all MAKES are real.  When we find manipulated campaigns it puts to question the integrity of the campaign and risks hurting all TasteMakers that worked so hard to push the campaign forward.  Manipulated MAKES also damages the cities' reputation in the artists eyes and can reduce the chances of that artist coming to your city.
