Foot and a half of snow in less than 24 hours.

BRING IT ON

wewwwwwww

The midwest is great cuz we always get hit with crazier stuff than the east coast, but minus the publicity, and plus about 20 degrees colder temps from arctic winds. I love it though. Gives me reason to work on music.

Hey there pals.

I've been having a huge blast diving into the "psychedelic" realms of music over the past four years. I figured I would share with you one of my favorite albums Ive discovered in this journey. You folks should check it out! AND ITS FREEEEEEEE.

I don't know if any of you are familiar with Ektoplazm, but the site has a killer following with a HUGE assortment of psychedelic tunes. If you like this album, the site is chock full of this stuff. What do you think?

Self-advertising threads

Not so long ago I made a thread ranting about the increasing amount of self-advertisment threads being posted here, but there wasn't much discussion because lately it's more tolerated. Well I still find it annoying as hell.
Yesterday I decided to look at the forum rules myself, and guess what: it's absolutely not clear that making individual threads for self-advertisement is forbidden! Just look at the image below, nowhere does it say 'you may not do this', let alone what the consequences are. No wonder these threads keep appearing.

Self-advertising threads

I'm personally not so reluctant to have them in the forum. Over in the art forum, they make their own personal threads to advertise their art, and it goes well for them. They get quick feedback from their fellow forum regs in their own thread, and it also works well as a repository of works in progress and recent art that they've been working on. I think it'd be cool to allow something like this in the audio forum too, given some limitations such as:
1.) Restrict your music all to one thread, entitled something like "<YourUsername>'s Music".
2.) Keep the focus on getting feedback, so post works in progress and actively ask for opinions.
3.) Introduce yourself and your music in the opening post of the thread, and append context to each piece of music you post in your thread (like "this is my first attempt at X genre" or "a score I'm working on for Y's animation"). My point is, don't be a nobody who tries to exploit the forum as a means to spam links and advertise.

That's just what I think. Will it work as well over here as it does in the art forum? Visual art takes just a glance for you to form an opinion out of it, whereas music takes a whole listen. Will this deter people from going out of their way to giving feedback? Maybe, maybe not. But do I think we should give it a shot? Yes. One of the major advantages of this method over the traditional method of just posting your music to the Audio Portal and getting reviews is that a forum promotes discussion, whilst the discussion in the review system stops at the artist's response. So yeah, despite my doubts, I think it's worth trying it out. Just my two cents.

So yeah, despite my doubts, I think it's worth trying it out. Just my two cents.

I really like the concept of using your own thread as a portfolio and discussing area. I actually can not say how this system would work out in the Audio Forum either. These thread are mostly made only by people who actually are looking for constructive criticism rather than 5-star votes, as opposed to some of the threads in the Audio Forum.
If we'd implement this idea (and also clearly discourage plain 'plz review' threads) I think it would work well because this would only attract artists that actually are really dedicated to making music, because nobody is waiting for portfolios that are half-assed and get abandoned after a while. On the other hand, I can imagine that some newbies might be thinking 'heh, i can do diz too', resulting in a ton of threads with submissions made with the standard 'kick-hat-snare-clap' samples. Not that there's anything wrong with those submissions, because yeah, these kids still need to find their way into the world of composing and producing, but it's not something you might want your portfolio to start with, right?

Still, before we would suggest a system like this, I still feel like the rules should clearly state that self-advertisement threads are not tolerated. They're annoying, and people making these threads have an advantage over users that don't visit the forum or just nicely post their link in the appropriate thread. Of course, we could erase this unwritten rule and just tolerate it, but then there's still my first complaint >> they're annoying.

So yeah, I dunno...if everybody would keep themselves to the rules you posted (and especially rule 3) this could work. But I can't say if that's gonna happpen.

Sorry for the long cock, here's a post.

I agree, but I'd take it further and put them into their own subforum to make up for the amount of pure advertisement. Looking at the art-forum, I'm seeing threads that aren't these being drowned out, which is kinda sad. It might amount to basically the same amount of moderation, unless of course regular users could mark a thread as promotional with some kind of squishy adaptive voting algorithm to push them around. But maybe that's over-planning.
