Myself and a few other long time SoundCloud users have encountered a new problem in the system: I personally have name for it and that is the "Same-Name Artist Bug" It's when SoundCloud Go's algorithm interferes with the Artist's ability to upload and edit tracks. The bug specifically intrudes upon any given unlucky artist by uploading tracks of other artist with the same name to your account. This FATAL SYSTEM ERROR causes the artist's profile, paid and unpaid to be affected dearly. Profiles are bombarded with non-associated tracks that bog up your artist space with claims of being your proprietary distributor of your music. The system works but not perfectly. These errors need to be reprehended and fast. I have the mind to stop paying & using SoundCloud entirely. I pay $16 a month and a lot of serious aspiring musicians rely on your service? #SOUNDCLOUDMODERATORS
if you see this thread or see my post in particular.
I will personally start a petition with all those of which this is happening to, we will have to come together and threaten to stop using your service or FIX THE BUG. I'm sure you have a large amount of monthly paid users of $6 - $16 with a high quantifiable value to this company. @AlexanderLjung & @ForssMusic really need to step it up this time around. Honestly this beautiful company started out great but I'm afraid it's slowly diminishing, I really don't know what it is that's going on.
The aesthetics of the site are great but the intuitiveness hasn't really went anywhere for a while. Though you've been doing it right since 2007 you've failed to effectively innovate your systems smoothly and by not rolling out SoundCloud GO sooner, big-capital companies such as Apple & Spotify have long surpassed you.
However there is hope..
Fix this bug and heck even make the premium paid artist profile a little bit more bang for the buck. Even if you have to make it 18$ people won't care just as long as it makes sense. I'm afraid of SoundCloud being washed up in the near future and though you developers and designers of this half-broken half-perfect system may not think so... lets just say the pudding is starting to go stale and people are starting to notice the stench.
Don't just spray febreze, throw out the pudding and make anew.
