Here some thoughts and proposals of improving the quality of recorded clips
(on the server side, “pushing the user in the right direction”).
Every recorded clip, who makes it in the corpus gets a point.
For Troll clips (2 second empty mouse click clips, and so on…) negativ point(s) are given.
The guidelines/rules for recording clips could be saved in a textfile for every speech section
and must also be read/recorded by every user.
(I did not read the Faq/Guidlines is no excuse anymore)
This is also possible for validating clips (guidelines for validating clips are saved in a textfile for every speech section.
Disadvatage would be: anonymous users who are deleting their cookies are in a loop by reading/validating always the same clips. Maybe someone else has a solution for this (contributing clips only with account?)
Before the user can upload his clip(s), he MUST hear his own recordings. Microphone issues and so on are recognized by the contributor himself.
