Reviving the old bold titles in the lounge thing in lieu of giant quote chain:
Review for review
@midimachine I agree that it's less than ideal for newbies to use the R4R thread and such, but doubt an additional thread for less-in-depth feedback would be helpful. I think if anything, it would just make stuff arbitrary and vague because everyone has a different idea of what an "in depth" review is.
I was going to mention the "review request club", but it appears that it's gone pretty inactive. I see recent posts there but don't see reviews from the club on content posted there.
Reviewing anything in one's catalog is nice too, but the issue with that was already mentioned (what if the person requesting a review specifically wants feedback on the new track?). I do like @iwontella's suggestion to specifically request a review on the posted song vs anything in one's catalog.
The opening post of the R4R already points out that you can link any song, even not your own if you want it reviewed. This way you can still use the review for review thread to review stuff even if you don't have anything of your own you want reviewed. I think that's a pretty interesting clause. :)
Anyway, 4 paragraphs later, I don't really have an answer either, let's keep talking.
Share 4 share thread idea
Call me cynical but I don't see that one work well. Personally I only like to share other people's work on my social media channels if I actually enjoyed it thoroughly, it's a big endorsement. I would not want to spam my friends/followers with links to stuff I don't even necessarily like, as I'd feel like I'm wasting everyone's time.
That and, people could easily share, take a screenshot, post the screenshot, and then remove the sharing post. I think it'd be too easy to game.
