I'm reposting this because it's gotten such a lackluster response from anyone at Soundcloud...I am a podcaster and I like the new RSS stats broken out, it gives great visibility. HOWEVER, the "plays" under tracks and under "plays in last 24 hours" should reflect "Total Plays". Then when you drill down you should have it broken down by "on Soundcloud" and "RSS". I get about 8,000 downloads a week from RSS, but only about 300 from Soundcloud. So my "plays" went from 8,300 to 300. And the track's popularity is not reflected to the Soundcloud community.
It's annoying when companies don't understand their customer base. I've been so happy with Soundcloud and it's kind of a slap in the face. What is the purpose of hiding the RSS plays? It makes no sense other than to show the podcasting community you don't really care about them. I know music is a big deal on Soundcloud and most musicians get their plays directly on site instead of through RSS. But for podcasters its totally different. So far you're lucky Soundcloud is the best thing around, but apps like you get replaced overnight with small improved features by other products waiting to gain market share. If someone else comes around with an app that responds better to its consumers, believe me, your podcasters will jump ship in a heartbeat.
