This is long overdue Soundcloud.
I cant count the amount of people i've spoken to about this missing function on such a big site as Soundcloud, they are too many. I follow 289 artists on soundcloud and they all repost so much bs i dont want to see.. I followed them for THEIR music. I follow everyone I want to hear music from. If i wanted to hear anyone else, i'd search myself. I used to have a passion for finding new music and would spend hours on soundcloud and others sites to look for new music. Now I havent had the patience for years. I barely use soundcloud anymore.
I hear Soundcloud is struggling financially. Almost going bankrupt. I'm actually sad.
If Soundcloud is to be saved, it needs to be rebranded. New colors and most importantly: the f****** "Disable reposts" button on the stream/home page. Do this and you will satisfy the millions of users u have and in fact, alot of them would probably donate to you, includng me.
SOUNDCLOUD YOU ARE BLIND IF YOU DO NOT REALIZE HOW MUCH GOOD THIS WILL DO TO YOUR SITE, AND YOU ARE BLIND IF YOU THINK SOUNDCLOUD WILL SURVIVE MUCH LONGER AS IT STANDS NOW.
I know alot of people will say: "oh but this is how soundcloud is different and it is working quite well. The reposts give more attention to up and coming people. It helps people find music blahblah. Soundcloud will never go bankrupt."
I tell you. If soundcloud just made that single button and advertised for it, perhaps with a rebranded logo and colors, representing a fresh start, it would be THE main site for all aspects of music again.
Lastly, if they implemented this, I am 100% sure nobody would give a fuck about advertisement. Be it through audio or pictures on site. Unless its all the time, like after listening to a single song. Then it would be terrible. But say after 4-5 songs. Not a problem. Bc people are now happy with Soundcloud finally being what they wanted it to be and what i believe it was before.
It's actually stupid simple. Get it done idiots.
