    UPDATE: I am now back online. Thanks to all who had my back!
    I'll leave original the post below for historical purposes.

    ---

    I got an email today notifying me that my SC account was under review. As of this post my page was not accessible. It just says "This account is under review" to anyone visting it.

    OMG what did NFX do???

    Well... are you ready for it? I... I....

    I put an incorrect genre on one or more of my songs.

    Yep.. they shut me down because I used an incorrect Genre...

    Forget that I have songs uploaded as much as 6 years ago when many of the genres they have now didn't exist.

    Forget that I pay them to have a VIP account...

    Forget the fact that they don't tell you which songs they are, even though they know.

    Forget the fact that they don't even warn you first..

    Forget the fact the fact that your fans get a message that makes you look like you did something illegal.

    On second thought... don't forget all that.. Fuck Soundick.

    ok.. I feel better now...

    EDIT - here is my track. 6 years ago I upped it and put into "Reggae" and they said it should be in "Instrumentals". For this minor issue, they shut me down. Clearly this is a reggae style track.



    EDIT - Heres what they sent me:

    Reason: Inappropriate Song Genres

    Your account is under review due to inappropriate genre listings. Anyinstrumentals/beats should be placed under the instrumentals genre, and anysongs containing lyrics should not (except in the case of hooks, whichwould then be placed in the 'Instrumentals with hooks' sub-genre ofInstrumentals).Please correct your genres and email us once this has been done to requestaccount reinstatement.

    ----

    EDIT: If you want to help "get the word out there" you can do one or more of the following: 

    Send a link to this thread to people you think should know about this. Here is a short URL to this thread: http://nfurl.us/scsux

    Email  support@soundclick.com  and tell them how you feel about it.

    Send a tweet to your friends about it.

    Go to FP and reply to this thread, so it gets bumps and notices:http://nfurl.us/scsuxfp 

    If you are a member of reddit (great site for so many topics) go to this post and click the up arrow (must join first) near the title to "up vote" it, so more people see it. http://nfurl.us/scsuxre . Also PM me on reddit for a good list of boards on there after you join. My reddit name is "warbeats":  

    send 1 tweets to the following twitter users, urging them to act or telling them your opinion. Please do not spam:

    yeah.. when I sent them my respons - stating how retarded their policy is - they replied back with a veiled threat of copyright issues. One of my tracks "Six Million Ways" was in the Reggae genre and should have been in the Instrumental genre apparently. They questioned if it used copyrighted material. It uses some short vocal hits:





    OK.. thats cool. I removed it. Thing is there are probably hundreds of thousands of uncleared sampled beats on there, they don't give a fuck about. ... hmm... maybe I shouldn't have called them retarded. LOL!

    They took me down for sampling too...such bullshit. They wouldn't even tell me what SONG was the cause of the violation, so I had to remove everything with even the tiniest "sample" down...replaying a melody? Taken down. Sampling a drum breakbeat from an obscure soul record? Taken down.

    But some of the most popular guys like Superstar O and Diamond Style have samples up (Black Eyed Peas and Lil Wayne samples nonetheless) and it's cool apparently.

    It's also apparently cool that about 10 of the top 25 are there because of playboosting (and I know a few of the playboosters, it's not a hoax lol) and no one cares about them either. Oh well, I guess soon that $1000 I've paid to Soundclick for promo over the past 6 months will be going into investing in a playbooster.


    Anyway, good luck getting your site back.  I'll send an e-mail too...and fuck Soundclick and their un-even policing of the system.

    man thats messed up. im planning to start a vip soundclick next week and its good to know about the genre thing. still i think its kinda messed up cause i´ve seen songs on the charts that aren´t categorized properly.
    Forget the fact that they don't even warn you first..

    I honestly dont understand soundclick at this point...

    Idiots!

    It''s just ridicilous... Common sense would dictate that if you have to hump the line that hard. Atleast be smart about it and notify the user about offence. That would actually save them money and time.

    Kudos for venting tho!

    yeah. what sucks is they know what song started the issue whether it's a sampling thing or a genre thing. They don't tell you. Some people have hundreds of songs on there too. I feel bad for them.

    It really sucks big time... It bugs me that Soundclick has such fucked up policy, because there really aint many other ways to make a breakthrough without knowing people.

    They're fucking with the wrong people. The "War"beat fam, is no joke!!

    they sent me this email as well when i had some beats in "hip hop" genre instead of the "beats and instrumentals" genre. I fixed the problem and they got me back up and running. but i've been deleted my instrumental soundclick site b/c it really doesn't help me any. maybe i'm just not into promoting and marketing the way most folks are so i chose another route. i still have my song page up though. but i'm sure they have rules they will force upon some and not upon others. folks like vybe, sso...they get good traffic from them i'm sure. but hey, that's how things are. i'll shoot them an email as well.

    yep yep!

    it really looks like theyre doing everything they can too lose people nowadays, think theyre forgetting producer&beatmakers are a huge part (if not THE biggest) of the site.

    I even seen this today http://amplicate.com/hate/soundclick

    Seems like this stuff popping up a LOT now

    Man that is complete bullshit, I sent an email on every one of my email accounts hopefully that helps.. That really shows how much soundclick cares about users... Warbeats should have "selling and purchasing beats on it" then soundclick can be shoved away and nobody will need it!!
