Time for a friendly inquiry/criticism/rant. The "recommended artists" list as it now stands is:
- a user with 13 recommendations, whose latest submission has 3 individual people claiming to have scouted him
- a user with 6 recommendations whose only submission is a timestretched vocal sample
- a hip hop person, all of the submissions are collabs with sketchy descriptions
- a person who has been credited on a popular submission from 2011
- someone who only uses only garageband loops
- a voice actor (that I scouted)
- dubstep from a troll account
- chiptune from a troll account
so as many people have mentioned, a report button would help prevent these from staying on the top until some dumbass scouts the garageband loop person or the troll accounts for example. I know who the audio mods are so I can just skype them or PM them of course, but I'm just not dedicated enough to do that each time, sorry.
And many of these have submissions from several months ago. Like this guy on the top of the "total submissions list" has submissions from 2007 all the way to 2011, but nothing after that. Were they banned earlier? Should I scout them if I can't find anything wrong with them or should I just not bother? The whole system is buggy and erratic as hell from my experience with it, so I don't know.
