I've been noticing something rather unfortunate. I see that despite a some people's songs having a ton (relatively speaking) of views, they get so little votes in comparison. A big thing for any artist, at least I feel, is receiving constructive feedback. I understand that the activity of NG in general isn't what it used to be, and especially how the Audio Portal is inhabited by the walking dead, but the issue is not so much with the size of the population, because it's still pretty decent. The gripe I have is with the lack of interaction. I have seen songs that have received upwards of ~200 views and have only 2 votes... that's sad and I could imagine it's infuriating for those who are looking for genuine feedback.
I understand that people may feel uncomfortable rating a song because it may have been good but not necessarily a sound that they jive with, but that's kinda why we have genres. And even then if you think it sounded good then maybe expressing it may not be a bad idea. Even if it's in a comment, just something to show some criticism would be enough for some. I fell like on the whole, only good could come out of talking with each other and having the lights flash on and off between us. It could even liven things on NG in general.
Anyway, sorry for the babble. I'll try sticking to only using A through G for now on.
