Question

We're waiting for the something that's suppose to be better than Groups. Where is it?

The majority of real musicians that use your website have been watching their stats steadily decline since Aug 22 because you removed groups. The message said you will be replacing it with something better?... Where is it? Groups was the only thing that helped users to promote their own music. Our only choice now on your website is to start sending annoying messages to random people asking them if they would plz plz listen to our songs. Nobody wants that. The reason the research you did showed that more people were getting more account activity through messages and not as much in groups is because that's how many fake advertisement accounts are on your website. It's pathetic how you let thousands of these small advertisement companies leech off your success. And now, because the hundreds of thousands of fake accounts are creating more traffic on your website than the actual users, you go and tailor the website to the needs of these douche companies and leave the real users and musicians with no way to promote their music. Groups was the ONLY good thing about soundcloud. It was the only reason I had a soundcloud account, and it's the only way on your website to get listens, likes, follows, reposts, and downloads without begging random users to play our sounds. I think it's unethical and rude to beg people I don't know to listen to my music, but apparently you all don't. I hope you fix it soon, or you won't be seeing me on soundcloud anymore. Good luck.

I totally agree. I just uploaded a new song, went to add to my groups and no can do. Soundcloud is on the way out if they don't figure out how to make it easy for people to share their music without spamming people to do it, and besides, who's got time to sit on Soundcloud all day spamming people? I'm pissed!

I must agree - especially for one who posts in a less popular genre. For we classical music composers, SoundCloud is great opportunity for sharing works we composers don't have opportunities to share in concert settings -- even if by MIDI playbacks. Groups was the only way we classical composers could, in a sense, meet and focus on the styles and approaches that interest us. Now we are in a desert. I'm very disappointed and frustrated by this. I really do hope there is some new coming. Or PLEASE bring back the groups.
WHAT IS GOING ON....?!! Lets have faith sound cloud will push something even better than groups, as its makes perfect to.... Gooooo!!

with the operative word being; when? as Myspace discovered, waiting to change can kill a business piggy backing off an industry that's all about change. latest & greatest bells & whistles win the day in the Internet age, with "here's the platform/fend for yourselves" being a very 1998 attitude for a streaming service to have. the bulk of your regular userbase will be gone and as those slow foots found out, that's mostly forever. the idea should be to promote a win/win/win scenario between SC/artists/listeners and right now, everyone is losing with your refusal to continue with Groups or provide the mysterious "better alternative" before taking them down.
