People keep saying this. And people keep posting links to garbage music everyone had heard 10+ years ago every day.

I'm totally onboard as long as they fix the ability to keep it from appearing on the home page

ok.. let me past what I told the other guy about how it was workin out for them at reddit with the r/music.

How does reddit music do. Used to be a default subreddit. Then I think they stopped with the default ones on new accounts. 27M subscribers yet only 5500 online now. When I had made my own subreddit with funturistic name, it would say there's people there, but there wasn't anybody. So the who's online now is bogus amounts and exaggerated. Not sure of the ratio but oh probably let's say 4000, if that. Look at comment activity on posts.

Then you've got how oh think it was couple years before the new layout, the top posts would only get maybe 10k upvotes. Like the front page, right. You could check the top of all time, it wasn't too many. All of a sudden one day it went to who it is now. It's around 20, 30, 40k. They just falsely inflated the top post numbers by doubling it, then probably more. You can tell what's really going on by the comment amount though. 24k, 200 comments. 38k, 5000 comments. 5000, 4000 comments. Fuck is reddit dead.

Oh it's bad.. check r music. That front page, top post, 2690 upvotes, 500 comments. Why does it say friday discussion only but it's tuesday. These are posts from the past day too.

https://old.reddit.com/r/Music/

At least saturday they'd have new and original music only. But it never really gets going. Oh fuck.. how about the whole site front page. You'd think, oh it'll help get a band famous. Fuck that.. never once ever. They hate it when guys plug their own crap. On the whole site, basicly. And then you scroll down that r/music front page, half a dozen town, 100 points. lol. Fuck is music dead over there. Maybe that's why they don't bother over here.

Wondering WTF is going on over there. Haven't checked r/music in years. Sorted by new.. seeing wtf is going on. Now I'm getting into 2 days ago. So not Friday yet. Shouldn't be this much discussion. Nobody's even submitting music. I guess they're so uptight. It's like, no music from the hall of fame. So you can't post any Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Pink Floyd. It's like reddit is so uptight with everything.

Here we are, getting into post 500.. from 2 getting into 3 days ago.

People aren't bothering to post music you listen to, because it goes nowhere. It's like 'why bother". lol

Noticed some "I made this" purple flair posts. I remember I had a bookmark of a search in r/music where it was only those. So only purple "I made this", sorted by new. So you can scroll there, and check out music guys made.

https://old.reddit.com/r/Music/search?q=flair%3A%22i+made+this%22&sort=new&restrict_sr=on&t=all

You can also sort to see which was the all time. And nope, nobody ever posted their own shit and made it to the whole site front page, and got famous. hahaha. It's good though to check out new shit with this, that people made.

Scrolling down that "I made this" flair posts, search page. Fuck it's like it used to be where it's ALL either ignored 1, or downvoted to 0. That's how bad it is. Nobody gives a fuck, whatsoever over there.

Add-on that wasn't in the other comment post.

So.. well I guess if you have a music section, then you can post music over there and leave "general" be for whatever so it's not as clogged with music.

You miss the entire point. Why talk about Reddit? Why was .win made?

General is for what doesn't fit anywhere else, and if a topic gets enough traffic a new community is made for it. Everybody stopped using general because IP2 was allowed to take it over and nobody wants to see those drunk 14 year olds.

So we need to flood general with music. . The next thing we need after that is a resource for parents; homeschooling etc. That IS the Nation's future.

Oh just pointing out what stinks when I was analyzing reddit music.

What's IP2. What are you talking about here with this stuff.

We all need a purge from Reddit! Venting, eyebleach, etc. Welcome to the party!

General here fell into disuse recently, and we have to restore it to its proper function. I just gave a little history about why, IP2 was a community that came here intact from Reddit, and never has been anything but problems. Admin let them use general, and it has yet to recover.

Yeah, I found that place before .win existed. People here told me my timing was I missed Reddit when it was good.

Should I post a in depth article underneath my music posts? Maybe something copied and pasted from All Music or Wikipedia?

Or, there are people who have never heard music that they really like but only find because someone linked it. You would be able to realize that on your own if you weren't human scum
