      Please upload a maximum of 2 songs in a 24 hour period. Uploading more may result in a 24 hour time out.
      Flooding multiple songs may result in a 24 hour ‘time out’.

        We’re instigating this rule because the recent upload list is so short that other members songs will fall off the list before others can ‘find’ them.

        We’re working on a solution. In the meantime, please honor the no more than 2 songs in 24 hour rule.

        **Note: We’ve noticed that special characters such as apostrophes, commas, question marks, slashes, hashtags, etc. causes a play failure**

      apostrophes = ,
      question mark = ?
      slashes = \ /
      hashtags = #
      And the usual @ # $ % ^ & ( ) + { } > <

      We need your cooperation in this to ensure that we aren’t taken from working on improving the site to continuously correct user error.

Site Items You Should Be Aware Of

  1. NOTE: Spammers WILL be BANNED.
  2. Posting a comment on a song will reload the page, as the comment is saved. This will stop the play of music that may be currently playing.
  3. DO NOT include special characters in your song filenames and titles. this will cause issues with the file being able to be properly uploaded.
