Hello
Can you please fix the bug (I am calling it a bug) which allows people to 'like' a track without having first played it.
On one of my tracks I currently have 7 'likes' but only 1 person has actually played the tune. This really puts me off using soundcloud. It would be a 5 minute code fix. Please fix this.
Thankyou

Of course this brings into question what counts as a 'play'. To keep the bots at bay I would suggest maybe 1 minute of actually playing the tune. Something like that. Ok thanks.

Hi there,

It looks like no one from the community has had the chance to get back to you about this. Some users like a track in order to be able to listen to it at a later stage actually. This way, all they need to do is head to their "likes" and can start listening.
