hey there;

i've a small youtube channel no one gives 2 funks about - i realised it could be douchy to be using music without asking permission - so i sent a few messages to some of the people that i followed that i might have used music from - got blocked for spamming - let the 24h ban period wear out - sent a few more - got banned again - i'm not trying to spam - just asking permission to a lot of artists for using their music and unsbuscribing / removing videos with any music from artists that don't want me to use their stuff - still have another 9 artists to email - might be another 2 days - after this, honestly, couldn't care any less about sending / receiving emails through soundcloud - just wanted to let powers that be that i'm not spamming - just trying to do the good thing - here are the links of the people i still want to ask permission :

https://soundcloud.com/lonzamusic
https://soundcloud.com/ghosttmusic
https://soundcloud.com/safakash
https://soundcloud.com/docmastermind
https://soundcloud.com/mixunion
https://soundcloud.com/laruche-records
https://soundcloud.com/theartistunion
https://soundcloud.com/dyallas
https://soundcloud.com/melloworange

This is the message I want to send them :

I make videos for fun; I don't have followers on youtube ( just a handful of people I don't even know where they come from. ) I love your music and sometimes download the "free download" track and use it on my videos, I give credit at the end of the video and always put a link for your soundcloud in the video's description ( some of my first videos sometimes don't have credits in the end because I was even more noob but always have a link on the description. )

If this isn't ok let me know and i'll remove any stuff I used from you

my channels are :
youtube/xx
youtube/xx

Keep up the great work and thanks in advance !"



Thanks for any help

p.s. - your website doesn't agree with mobile

Like I said; I'll wait 48h to reply to some of the artists that replied, unfollow the ones who didn't just to stay outta trouble, and will make a dummy account to message the rest of them !

Thanks for the reply - enjoy the weekend !

it just seems like a very outdated system - isn't it a lot smarter to just get people to be able to block incoming messages ?

i can only imagine people with a few thousand followers that decide to message back everybody with a simple "i read your message and would like to thank you"

very smart, if you ask me - very smart system

I absolutely agree with you Sergio. I have been a member of SoundCloud for many years now (some of those years I was paying for the service) and this is complete bullshit. I was also blocked for messaging my own followers. I tried to email SoundCloud directly and I received an automated response that " they don't respond to emails they get " and I was given a link that literally doesn't help you. I'm honestly disappointed, because I always thought that out of all the platforms out there for artists, SoundCloud wasn't going to limit my reach. They have conformed to the ways of greedy corporations just like the rest of them.
