How about creating a forum for uploading songs?

As far as I know, we do not have the bandwidth to store all of the audio required for that type of forum. There are many sites where you can do that, though, and you can link to those in a post here at SW101.

Exactly!

Actually, there seem to be rather too many options where to upload your songs. Some thrive, some vanish. I’ve used UBW before, which seems to be not as frequented as before any more, now I use SoundClick. Others prefer YouTube so they can upload their videos.

A separate feedback forum for music - as opposed to lyrics only - might be useful, though (like at Just Plain Folks). At the moment the lyrics forum serves both purposes.

You are right Bernd.

We´ve suggested this several times and the feedback of the mods was: “Yeah, we think about it… “... but nothing happened this far.

“Songwriting” means lyrics and music. Here is a lyric forum, a tech forum, even an off-topic, but no place where you can discuss the whole song. So “Lyrics101.com” would be a better name for the forum here.

It´s a pitty, because it seems like no one cares about what the users want. I send a message to the team via email as well, did not even get a respond…

Martin—

The team here is aware of this request from members.  We’ve discussed it internally and honestly we ARE still thinking about it.  It would be work to implement, work to monitor (we can’t allow infringing content), bandwidth and storage costs would rise etc.  Like everyone we have to manage our available resources.

Sorry you did not get a reply to your earlier message.  You can PM me directly if you like.

Best,

Peter

HI Peter,
thank you for the respond. The question is why are you talking about “storage costs”. We just want(ed) to have a Forum where we could post our Songs. Right now there is just a lyrics lybrary wehre we can get feedback on lyrics. But there is no place to get feedback for music and the whole song.

We don´t need a server to upload a song, we can use soundcloud, soundclick or anything like this..

As far as I understand this site is called SONGWRITER101 and not Lyricswriter101 (Songwriter means music and lyrics…)


But now it looks like that we don´t need this forum anymore. Most of the people who used to hang around here have left this place. It´s goin down, it´s nearly dead, the magic of SW101 is lost. So it looks to me :(

...every once in a while, I get in the mood or so…and start to play..

I see they took your suggestion. See the new Tune Topics Forum.

There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? http://www.garyeandrews.com
