I personally expect this forum to be a place where I can get feedback, but plays.
As an amateur producer, feedbacks are important, and I need them.
Since we post our tracks on SoundCloud, you can let hundreds of people listen to your music by using method below
ex: put many tags, increase followers (by following many people), reposted by other big accounts, make an eye-catching cover art, add an eye-catching title (“FREE DOWNLOAD” or sth) etc.
because there are tons of SoundCloud users, many more than disco users.
(I’m ignoring the quality of the track, but do you think quality strongly correlate to plays or likes? I don’t think so, there are so many good songs which deserve many more likes and plays, in general.)
However, SoundCloud is not the best place to get feedbacks because
- Users are not intimate enough to give critical feedbacks
- Not all users are a creator so that they can’t give informational tips for creating process.
- it’s not easy to comment (UI problem, which is fixed a few months ago)
In the disco, all 3 issues are (or can be) solved, as it is
- warm community (I believe and hope)
- all users are a creator.
- easy to comment
Then why there is not much comment or feedback?
Maybe “Finished track thread” doesn’t work well to motivate other users to comments,
due to no regulation, as @Aqzi said.
I think this is a good idea.
It was used in FMOTW, as a user hasn’t given comments, they are suspended from the featuring list. and it seemed working in some degree.
