[Last upd: 08/07/06] Outdated's Custom songs! New: This Needs To Stop.

Postby FrOoGle » Fri Jul 08, 2016 11:57 am

Seriously. In the Tune Posting Forum, on the first page alone, almost half of the threads have been bumped from eons ago. Second Page? Third Page? Fourth Page? same thing. This has been going on for far too long. And it's because of two things. Outdated youtube videos and the wiki page

People watch these old videos on youtube on how to download and install songs for FoF that say that the wiki is the place to get songs. The viewers, aka the future forum necromancers, say "Wow! There's so many songs here! This is where everything is." But fail to realize the videos, along with the FoF wiki, are both outdated. When our friends begin bumping these dead threads, they think that the threads are still active, which leads to half the threads on the first page of tune posting being dead. That being said, these youtube videos mislead newcomers into thinking that the wiki is the best place to get songs, and then misleads users who check the tune posting section, because they'll see these bumped threads taking up half the forum and will then think it's okay to bump these threads when the download links to their favorite songs don't work because so many people do it. As an active charter, it's annoying when you add a song to your thread but then come back and your thread's obscured by dead ones from 10 years ago.

There were mentions of the wiki getting an overhaul a while back, but nothing happened since.

I finished a major overhaul on the wiki song list. The original list is now archived (still viewable Here). The new list is now a clean slate ready to have songs added to it.
