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.
