Added links to Sam's list so people could get information about these things easily. Couldn't find Rocktober or Notevember.

Maybe we should just have a yearly section for Songfight and also Album-a-day, things that don't happen once a year.
Ken's Super Duper Band 'n Stuff - Berkeley Social Scene - Tiny Robots - Seamus Collective - Semolina Pilchards - Cutie Pies - Explino! - Bravo Bros. - 2 from 14 - and more!

Notevember only exists as a hashtag, as far as I know. https://twitter.com/search?q=%23notevem ... yped_query

Of course that also reveals that there are *two* things called "notevember," the other one being "write a (textual) note every day"

Rocktober is generally set up as a subsection of the 50/90 site at the start of October, but I'm not sure the URL is always the same

Here's another one called Weekly Beats where you upload a song a week for 52 weeks. I think this only happens every other year, so no 2019, but will happen again in 2020.

Seems like some of them-- Nurein and Spintunes in particular, might be better counted only for the month in which they start? Because you can't jump into Nurein in May or June if you're looking for a challenge.

Yeah also I was being flippant when bringing up Song Fight!, and it'd make more sense to have a "year-round" category for stuff like that.

I'd like to re-establish Circle of Titles as a regular thing, I guess this is a great reference to avoid putting it in a regular spot that will conflict with one of the other big events. March is looking good so far...

Spintunes is typically done twice a year. Most years it's January and either Late June or Early July (start dates) but that changed the past year (or two.)

Also, Dave is looking for someone to take over the challenge, it seems.
