      ***HERE is how to access PRESALE CODES, VIP* and Meet and Greet* opportunities.***   01/30/2017

      Before getting down to the business of access to presale codes, etc. please take note:   ***Please be advised that any member publicly posting actual presale codes anywhere on the forum (and possibly elsewhere!) or reportedly through private messages, will be banned from membership here on AO! NO EXCEPTIONS!   Our site here at adamofficial.com (aka AO) is Adam's official record label site, not his official fan club, and is not the place to find presale codes, nor are they provided through the official newsletter.   Presale codes are provided to paid members of Adam's official fan club one to several hours before the presale begins. If you are a paid member you can find the presale code in your dashboard at that site.
      The official fan club, Adam Lambert Fans, can be found here: http://www.adamlambertfans.com
      You must pay a fee to join. I believe the minimum fee is $9.99.
      Any other entity, website, or contact person on Twitter, email, etc. claiming to be representing Adam's official fan club and collecting payments other than directly at the above website is BOGUS, NOT LEGITIMATE!   Any questions you may have concerning any aspect of the fan club, including presale codes, VIP* tickets, Meet and Greet* opportunities, should only be addressed to the fan club moderators, DearBecky and addictedtoadam here on AO in the Adam Lambert Fan Club subforum. Please check to see if your question has already been posted in an existing thread there before posting a new topic. Please do not post questions concerning these subjects anywhere else on the forum. You can find the fan club subforum listed on the main forums page directly under Tour Talk.   The direct link is:
      http://forum.adamofficial.com/forum/30-adam-lambert-fan-club/   Fan club moderators, please correct me on anything I've posted that you find to be unclear or incorrect, through a PM. Thanks.   *Meet and Greet and VIP opportunities may or may not be offered.

UPDATE - email from youtube

Official Artist Channels combine content and subscriptions from multiple channels into one.

Hi music fans,

When you want to follow an artist on YouTube, sometimes you’ll find that they have multiple channels. So, which one should you subscribe to?

To make things simpler for fans, we worked with artists to unify their songs, albums and videos under one Official Artist Channelmusic_note_grey600_18dp.png. Your artist subscriptions and notifications will soon move to Official Artist Channels and you'll be able to manage Official Artist Channel subscriptions like any other channel subscription. Your current secondary artist channel subscriptions will become inactive. 

By giving you one artist channel to subscribe to, it will be easier for you to keep up with your favorite artists and their music! Learn more

Artists with Official Artist Channels

An artist may have more than one channel on YouTube — for example, the channel they manage themselves, a partner-provided artist channel, and a topic channel. However, some artists may have an Official Artist Channel QxRJTZHUV1JhtC5abWRG1MZjfGoXeq-pS-VATP9Z, which creates a collection of music and videos from that artist across all of their different channels in one place.

If an artist has an Official Artist Channel and you've previously subscribed to their partner-provided or topic artist channel, you will be automatically subscribed to their comprehensive Official Artist Channel. Notifications will be sent from the artist's Official Artist Channel.

Your subscriptions to the artist's partner-provided and topic channels will be inactive and these channels will no longer be included in your list of subscribed channels. You can still find an artist's partner-provided artist channel through advanced search and through searches for the artist's name and partner-provider, however, they will no longer include a subscribe button.

You can find an artist's Official Artist Channel when you search for them on YouTube or when watching an artists's official music video. As always, you can manage your subscriptions for any individual channel you subscribe to, including Official Artist Channels.

It doesn't appear that they've done this for Adam's Official Artist Channel yet - His subscribers have only gone up by 402 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9SGC_32CZahPYkEY92xflA 

ETA - it seems they are doing this by the YT subscribers user name in alphabetical order - as in users that have subscribed to channels (my YT user name is AOStarlighter) ; from email You have received this mandatory email service announcement to update you about important changes to your YouTube product or account.

 

Adam's Vevo YT has 714K subscribers. His Official Artist channels has 417K - after they get everyone's subscriptions moved from Vevo to  Adam's Official subscribers will see a nice boost  on Adam's Official artist channel. ;)

The adjustment to how Billboard applies streaming data to its charts was first announced in concept last October, and was followed by exhaustive industry discussion and internal analysis to arrive at the new methodology.

Currently, Billboard has two defined types of streaming plays for the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart (and our other genre-specific hybrid songs charts): on-demand (such as Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube) and programmed (such as Pandora and Slacker Radio), with on-demand having a greater weight. The Billboard 200 albums chart -- and our other genre-based consumption-ranked albums charts -- uses a single tier (equating 1,500 streams as one album unit) for on-demand audio streams (paid or ad-supported) from subscription services. Video streams and programmed audio streams do not contribute to the Billboard 200’s calculations, but are incorporated into the Hot 100.

Beginning with the first week of Nielsen’s third quarter of 2018 (sales and streaming week of June 29 to July 5, which will be reflected on Billboard charts dated July 14), plays on paid subscription-based services (such as Apple Music and Amazon Music) or on the paid subscription tiers of hybrid paid/ad-supported platforms (such as Spotify and SoundCloud) will be given more weight in chart calculations than plays on ad-supported services (such as YouTube) or on the non-paid tiers of hybrid paid/ad-supported services.

Billboard will have multiple weighted tiers of streaming plays for the Hot 100, which take into account paid subscription streams (representing a full point value per play), ad-supported streams (representing a 2/3-point value per play) and programmed streams (representing a 1/2-point value per play). Those values are then applied to the chart’s formula alongside all-genre radio airplay and digital song sales data. Streaming remains the most dominant factor on the chart, followed by radio airplay and digital sales in descending order of significance.

The Billboard 200 will now include two tiers of on-demand audio streams. TIER 1: paid subscription audio streams (equating 1,250 streams to 1 album unit) and TIER 2: ad-supported audio streams (equating 3,750 streams to 1 album unit).

Streams from trial subscriptions that offer the same access and functionality as a paid tier will be considered TIER 1. At this juncture, the Billboard 200 will continue to not incorporate video streams. The Billboard 200 ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multimetric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (equating 10 sold tracks to 1 album unit), and streaming equivalent albums.

The shift to a multi-level streaming approach to Billboard’s chart methodology is reflective of a global push to measure streams in a revenue-reflective and access-based manner. Music is now being consumed on streaming services in more diverse ways, migrating from a pure on-demand experience to a more diverse selection of listening preferences (including playlists and radio) and the various options in which a consumer can access music differs based on their subscription commitment.
