A message to admins [probably you'll delete this]

I have a question?
Why You deleted my post?
I understand forum rulles. There are certain rules. But If I add a track to "listening both" and can't define specific genre of my track, why You deleted my post.

I did not promote, I did not spam, I just want some feedback.

Can You tell me why?

Ps. sorry for my autocorrect.

Re: Message To admins. [probably You delete this]

Use the genre label as a learning experience.

I hate tagging my tracks with a specific genre. It always seems like such a generic way to describe the music. Plus, I always feel like I'm labeling it with the wrong genre and as a result am doing a disservice to folks who both work in and seek out that genre. But, in trying to define the genre of my own work, I've learned a lot about the wide variety of genres in electronic music and have stumbled across some great artists in the process.

As for why it was deleted, I'm just guessing here but I can see two reasons:

1) Everyone here uses the same naming format when posting in the LB. One of the cool things about this board is the diversity of artists who come around, and the diversity of songs you can listen to. Having the genre requirement at least gives some order to the chaos.
2)Using a title like "I don't create genre" is kinda snobby.

Just use one that is somewhat related to...I think artists dislike genres in general. They all come about from people who "need" to call works of art "something" but they end up being cognitive shortcuts decorated with "rules" which I personally refer to as bullshit ornaments.

Nevertheless we all have to follow the rules of these forums or else things may get out of control...

its a rules thing.


just do it.


call it [poopcore], or whatever you want. just add the brackets.

otherwise..... DELETE.

if you want a lot of people to check out your tunes call it [post-dub-step-electro-core-pre-next-trend-step-ever]

it really doesn't matter what you put in the brackets, just put something in there.

This.

Your thread title was:
I don't create genre I create music.

It should have been:
[electronic] arm23 - my magical pony

So I'm not sure what you're confused about. There's a rule. You didn't adhere to it. Your thread got deleted.

take it easy and don't be arrogant. It sounds like you feel you're the only one that find difficult to label his own tracks...why don't you repost it as [unlabeled] or [unknown genre] or [my own style]..? hundred of possibilities are there before deliberately breaking the rules. Any way I highly recommend to include in the brackets any style similar to your track as I (and probably the most ) only listen to tracks labeled with some of the styles I'm interested in.

It's not that we think he deliberately broke the rules tbh, lots of people do it, but so do lots of spammers and that's why we use this rule. It's much easier to assume everyone who isn't using the guidelines is a spammer than spend a long time looking at each individual thread.

Re: Message To admins. [probably You delete this]

I think I can sum up this issue with a small infographic,

Here we can clearly see how things like the sticky threads with listening booth rules fall just outside of the average user's range of visual detail.

i had one of my tracks deleted too for the same thing. idrc tbh, but maybe there could be a way for the mods or the creator to edit the thread title to avoid angry posts like this in the future... i could see it being a little annoying or disheartening to some forum newbie who posts his track, actually gets some feedback, and then can't reply to it because the thread got deleted.

Precisely, and then everyone can start putting whatever in the thread title because moderators just love editing everyone's thread titles.

We don't have a lot of rules regarding the listening booth, they're not hidden, they're purely for organizational purposes (we're not being elitists or selective about what you can and can not post in the listening booth), and in the end a lot of people really aren't even trying to follow them even though they know better.

Besides, I love angry posts like this (I can't and don't speak for the other mods at all). They're much better than angry listening booth threads without some kind of heads up before people listen to something they don't want to and feel the need to start angry listening booth threads.

Yeah, once in a while people genuinely don't know and I will go out of my way to add a genre tag of some sort - I still have to send them a PM about "the rules".

What I get a particular chuckle out of this thread is that the OP has posted in the listening booth before, following the rules!

That would be a fair bit more work though for them. Delete seems fine when the rules thread specifically says - if you don't label it correctly, it will be deleted.

I do that in cases where it's easy to find those things out actually, but it can be very time consuming and a bit of a ballache when there's 10.

Why people can do all that stuff over at SC of their own free will but not here when we ask them too baffles me a bit aswell tbh.
If you can't be arsed to read the guidelines and post accordingly why would you be surprised when your track gets removed?

I find that once people have had a track removed they very quickly get around to figuring out how to post according to the rules.

The idea that the whole forum should pander to noobs is frankly ridiculous.

Re: Message To admins. [probably You delete this]

yeah it's true - if your track gets deleted you'll know for the next time. it should stay that way.

i hesitate to say it would be a lot more work for the mods, though - i mean, if you're going to PM someone telling them your track is removed, perhaps that time could be spent PMing them and telling them, "hey, change your thread title or i'm gonna delete it in x amt of time."

i mean for someone like me who should know better, you can go right ahead and delete it, but for a new user, there's a good chance now that he won't wanna stay invested in the community. i mean, it is a pretty nitpicky rule that is unique to this forum... it can be easy to miss or forget about, even if it is pasted very boldly in the listening booth. but admittedly, this guy did deserve it, lol.

what do you mean ? i can already put whatever i want in the thread title when i create it. the only thread title you could edit is your own. you really think people would abuse it and keep editing after you edited it just to fuck with you guys?

edit: actually yeah, now that i think about it, someone like this guy definitely would. guess my idea isnt so good after all.

No, he means that if the mods were more lax about the rules and changing everybody's thread titles instead of deleting them, then more people probably wouldn't stick to that rule and just post whatever in the thread title.

And you actually cannot rename your own thread, so PMing people and telling them to rename their thread wouldn't work. I wish you could rename your threads, though.
