I wonder how many of you my fellow songsmiths vocalists lyricists having spent time and effort contributing to a project And when you check it out a week later after no comment from the Creator or manager You find your effort has been removed with no explanation You expect some times your ideas are not what is wanted But its nice to be told why or even given a thank you for taking an interest in the first place

In a word, its bulsht for project owners to IGNORE submissions.. Only an asshole and or dikhead raised by wolfs would simply ignore others efforts on their fking project.. Lets see, they post a project, someone is inspired by it, downloads, takes their time and offers a piece of themselves back in an effort to make the project owners song better. And they blow it off?... wht kind of loser acts like that??? The offerings are not made with any guarantee of acceptance, but only to be heard, acknowledged and THANKED for the effort. So yea.. fuk em,,, put them on the list of pricks to never offer anything to in the future.. ((((:
It goes that way for drummers & assumedly all other musicians as well. Take what you did and release, it's yours; or laugh and thank goodness no further attention is required.
There should be a physical punishment for this type of behavior! (Their Mommy never taught them manners when they were young.) In Kompoz 3.0 they talked about karma-points.... The more you contributed to others projects, the more points you got??? You can tell how self-centered they are by the number of collabs they start, verses contribute to others projects.
....seriously ...? i dont know why anyone would expect anything different .... ...the internet = no one is real ... Bing baNg BoNg.. nostradumass *peace
There are several shining examples of real people here. I identify as real dumb for example.
HA! Midi eats to much fine food to be a bot~ plus he only has ONE account!
Yeah I troll and upload with same account hahah! Not too bright.
AHAHAH!! people think i have multiple accts.. NOPE I only created 1 extra 1 time for 1 song.. to surprise someone with a solo.. thats it.. Birds of a feather baby!!
This happened to me some time ago. Very bad style, indeed, and there is no excuse for it. Like you said: It is totally understandable that a contribution is not always what the project owner wants. But then they should simply say so, thank you for your interest and THEN archive the contribution. But not everbody has good manners.
I have to put up my hands here - Although I wouldn't knowingly just archive an idea without recognition (unless it was superceded by a newer and improved version from the original contributor) I am most certainly very guilty of starting collabs and not progressing them leaving ideas unattended. The reason for this is that I simply do not have the skills (or lately the time either) to pull together musical contributions from different sources into a scratch bedtrack. I'm OK chucking a passable vocal on top of a completed mix but that's about it. Generally I try to spark something and then appoint someone with the required skills as a manager but often no-one wants that role and so the project just grinds to a halt. With this in mind I have decided that in future I will reduce the number of collabs I start and instead just build up a private archive of lyrics that I can perhaps amend to fit the collabs of others as they appear. I've also decided that I need to cull most of my open collabs in order to stop others wasting their valuable time.
Your a fab kompozer DT I often dont close the deal ~ for various reasons. Ktown is def headline driven~ New projects get the spotlight. In fact just getting feedback from players on your project is not easy as every one is on to the next thing. All in all its wonderful, cause were all getting better at some audio level at what we luv doing. That said, anyone simply ignoring a submission with intent.. thats ass!
Well put Dave If you look at all these projects gathering dust for years I reckon there should be a notice on all projects that after a certain period of time they must be removed Unless the creator requests how long he or she wishes the project to remain active And with a regular update see if anyone has contributed or added any comments If they have be polite and say Thanks but have decided this is a no go and give them a chance to remove their contribution or ideas or Archive them if they wish
It's easy to forget or miss notifications, I have done that many times. But I never just remove a contribution without talking to the contributor (at the very least in private message). In my case mentioned above it got even "better": After mentioning how "nice" I thought this move (archiving without any reaction) was, the next time I looked, the project was private. :) Well, you learn something about people that way...
