The streaming facility has been absolutely ruined by reposts. Someone who hasn't produced any music for ages can still go an a rampage and reposts dozens of pieces of no interest - just really polluting the stream. I know I don't rely on the stream the way I used to and worse, I know other people have quit checking it too (!) because they don't know when I've just published something either. This really shouldn't be difficult to implement - in fact you allow people to view just "tracks" on each artist's page, so it shouldn't be hard to filter out reposts from the stream lookup either. PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEZE do this - you're literally destroying Soundcloud!!!

Hi there Ian,

Thanks for your feedback about this. There are currently no plans to release this feature in the near future. Meanwhile, there might be workarounds for you to achieve a similar experience.

All the best

Hello there SoundColud! Another person here looks to be suggesting we should be able to filter out reposts or have some way to easily see only the tracks the people we follow have uploaded. This just isn’t going away is it. This particular suggestion was originally posted 7 months ago. Unfortunately the suggestion of using a plugin that strips reposts from the stream being a suitable fix is no good because if someone reposts a new upload then it would get removed too.
