totally agree. but then SC is a kind of social network where sharing and repost is the key :-/

Hi Guys,

Soundcloud is currently doing a survey on how to improve the re-posts feature. Copy and paste the url to this forum thread in the comments section in the below link & you will be sent an email where you can put forward your ideas on how to make the feature better for everyone on Soundcloud.

I certainly hear what you are saying and its something that is said by many users on here. Soundcloud has clearly now recognised that the repost feature in it's current form, whilst a good idea initially, needs refining & they want to hear how to make it better so, as I mention in my reply above, copy the url for this thread in the link above and take part in the survey...only way to make things better is to get involved 🙂

I have halted using SC until they fix this issue. I can hide retweets, unsubscribe following facbeook users, and hide anything I don't want to see just about everywhere else.

Now, the new uploads by artists I follow on soundcloud are impossible to discover in my stream, because it is full of reposts.

This was a terrible "enhancement," or is a quick fix of some bug.

Soundcloud is unusable, now.

Either everyone needs to stop reposting, or I will never be back if they don't change the ability.

Trying to get the word out to everyone who is fed up waiting for a fix for this!

There is a Google Chrome plugin that fixes this problem I encourage everyone to download it.

Tx for this 1staid but when I use it it hides reposts from viewing, but not from listening my stream, so I still will have to unfollow people who repost too much.

Apologies, the three above don't work either

They hide the tracks in the UI, but hidden tracks are still played in the stream

heh, yeah I tried writing my own greasemonkey plugin to fix the problem but I encountered the same problem. Maybe I should try debugging their code to give everyone a fix

I made similar comments almost half a year ago...
- Add the turn off button for the repost on the stream...
But do they work on it??? doubt...
Today I unfollowed 5 accounts because of their too much repost, but I still like their original posts.
WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHY DON'T YOU ADD " - turn off button for the repost on the stream... " LIKE TWITTER'S "turn off retweets"!?!?hey! hey! why!! why SC! why!!!
man.... i got one track at the top of my music by some random crap nothing like my shit at all. and it's become avidly irritating to me to see it there. like. i want to delete my account due to this but, then i lose my messages n shit have to reupload, and dont know if i get to keep my name... what the fuck mn, these jerks,. this is crap. fuck this shit square holed. if you need some good ideas, how about, play with my dick. 😛
At least on Chrome there is an extension called Repost-Toggle for Soundcloud. It adds a small button in the beginning of the stream that toggles reposts off. Unfortunately can't be done on mobile.. So i'm not listening to soundcloud when i'm on my way to work or anywhere else. Also sadly i've been unfollowing some people who just repost everything they see.

So the solution is out there. Soundcloud should just implement it.

You killed the platform with the repost feature. I used to love Soundcloud but had to switch to Spotify because of this.

Please fix this so we can still follow artists we love without being spammed. Seeing reposts should be an option, you're burying many talented yet undiscovered artists, the ones the platform was supposed to help getting heard

That's just BS. You know it, I know it, folks know it, everyone knows it. Soundcloud, please implement this god damn feature that everyone has been asking about for years now.
Perhaps you guys want to send out another survey? I'd love to respond, but that is a 3 year old dead link now at this point. Sad. Soundcloud used to be good.

Let us hide all reposts, or reposts on an account-by-account basis. Make Soundcloud great again!

Why are there posts over 3 years old about this issue and yet it persists? I love the SC community but this really sucks. I want to deliberately choose whom I'm going to follow and be notified of their new work so I can listen and support them.

People are reposting scads of tunes a day, clogging the stream with a lot of tunes that are really quite mediocre. I think this is because people think that a bunch of reposts is going to gain them favors. But what good is it when the whole thing is a clouded mess of reposted tunes?

And, of course every new post gets spam emails from the sleazeballs who *sell* reposts.

Please put some integrity and quality into this site and don't turn into another MySpace, Reverb Nation, etc pile of bones in the cyber scrap heap.
its been YEARS and YEARS - still no official repost-toggle button its becoming kinda pathetic

this feature requires just 1 to 3 lines of code to implement it
