I did entertain the idea when I looked at Bandcamp, It's not as straight forward though, so I never implemented it.

Yeah, I distinctly remember embedding them on the Fourtheye forums before but I think Und is right. Hellboy, is that a functionality you'd consider implementing?

Yes, but don't hold your breath. Embedding Soundcloud stuff isn't as easy as it appears.

Clearly in anticipation of you complaining about where it was created. They are always one step ahead of you.

It may appear in that forum to the casual observer, but those who view at it with keener eyes will notice it isn't...

Why is the grindcore thread pinned to the top of the music page when we can all agree that grindcore sucks?

As in my post said I did it after midnight making it March 1st? If that's the case I blame the Mexicans... and that I've probably got my timezone set wrong

Whelp, there sure has been a major increase in spammage postings recently. Used to be the odd posting for viagra, etc. Lately there have been dozens for some fake passport sites. They are coming fast and furious. It's tedious slapping them down. HB, any way to put the hammer down, maybe even prevent them from posting in the first place?

I've noticed the same thing - I'll see what I can do, might not be until tomorrow that I can have a decent look though

Well, we've tried making the content of the site as unattractive as possible. Don't know what else there is to do.

Just make a bunch of tool related multiple choice questions when users sign up.

Like who is the lead singer of Tool & What band did Maynard say they weren't like when ending a show back in the 90's?

Stuff even the most basic Tool fan would know.

That's actually the old verification method. Semi recently (in the last 12 months) I changed to Recaptcha. For now I've reverted to the Q&A style verification, and will see if that makes a difference short term.

Who are you guys to decide whether I'd like to see viagra ads. I have a friend that could really do with those at the moment. Would it kill ya to let just a few slip through the keeper?

That's not in keeping with PG family vibe we're trying to maintain here. There's a number of you here I'm pretty sure are only 13 years old based on your posting maturity
