    That's probably true I guess, which is a shame. However, I guess the people who appreciate the forum will gravitate to it, and the others will use the rest of the site in whichever way suits them. Which is a good thing really! It means many different types of people will get benefit from it.

    I guess one of my problems is I'd like other people to think like me. Say why you're downloading, say thank you, be appreciative etc. Well, in truth the world doesn't work like that, and for it to do so everyone else would have had to be brought up by my parents. I'm saying nowt about what they'd think about that! grin

    Anyway, I guess Freesound is teriffic precisely because of its wide variety of users and uses and I should be grateful for that.

    So thank you Freesound and Forum users. I appreciate your company (and advice) smile

    Make it more appealing somehow, but that's like a snowball's chance in hell.

    I have no bright ideas, unless we start injecting memes into the place, which seems to be what's "hot" these days for generation Z. I do know It's hard for a non-profit organisation to do PR; no prizes then unfortunately.

    The Dares were supposed to add some zest into the community. I haven't seen much traction gained from this though.

    Over time I have accepted that this is not really the place for a buzzing forum, because everyone is too busy tinkering with synthesisers and out in the field. At least, that's the impression I get.

    True. Which is a shame, because then we'd know what they were using our tracks for grin

    Which raises the question, how do we encourage them to use the forum more?

    Seems to me there are two kind of users, those like myself who enjoy recording and uploading them for others. (I do download some clips that I think are brilliant, but don't really search for anything yet), and those who download and use. So it's no surprise that either people download tons but have never uploaded, or upload tons but don't download much.

    However, you would have thought considering all our uploads are free, that manners alone would have made a higher percentage say thank you. Its possible of course that they just download them but never use them, so they have little to inspire them to say thanks.

    This is where I was really coming from when I started the thread. Given that its all free, why do people feel it's necessary to knock your work with a low rating or a crappy comment. No manners and no respect. I think that must be the reason.

    You know a lot of schools use Freesound as a platform for lesson material, so It wouldn't surprise me if a good portion of downloads came from these types of users. Hence why the profiles are blank.

    I understand that, but they can comment and attribute, can't they? At least they can tell us what our sounds are being used for. The sounds are free... And the download to comment/attribution ratio is just ridiculous. But I guess it's too much of a problem grin
