Didn't think so
That's really great to hear.
Glad you got what you were looking for.
We could lock the word game (...).
Currently all uploads from users get consolidated by user name on the moderation screen.
Lets assume user Alfred uploads 1 sound on 1st July and 99 sounds on the 3rd July and user Bertrand uploads 1 sound on the 2nd of July.
If a Moderator looks at the queue on the 4th July, he will see 100 sounds from Alfred ahead of the single sound from Bertrand.
Obviously it is convenient to cluster sounds by the same user for moderation, but would it make sense for the clustering to be weekly, or even daily?
With daily clustering, the queue would look like: 1sound from Alfred, 1 sound from Bertrand, 99 sounds from Alfred. - so it is likely that this would speed up the moderation of Bertrand's sound and be closer to the actual chronological order of sound uploads.
I still feel, though, that the issue here is that the sounds from whitelisted users skip the moderation altogether and become available immediately. Because they are not subject to that delay, they are more likely to figure in the 'recent additions'/'latest sounds' and then on the 'most downloaded sounds' of the week.
User Caderesound was kind enough to share an excellent piece of music. We're working on infusing it with the trailer...
He's been avid, kind and above all competent enough to adapt his own material to the needs of our (processing) project. If you're interested in or need help to build something with a body of sound send him a message.
And thank you for tipping me off to the above-mentioned sites. Didn't find what I was looking for there though. Freesound seem to be a source of diversity. Impressed!

I uploaded an old recording of One armed bandit from the 1970s on Freesound (described in Finnish but also English title and tags exist).
I noticed there are handbrake sounds already on Freesound, but I uploaded a few more from the past decades. Same remark as above about the languages. (Handbrake is "käsijarru" in Finnish).
Hope you can use them.

I had the same thought AlienXXX a while ago, and the majority of my post count has come from that thread, for which I feel slight dishonour.
However, I don't think what you suggest would be the right thing to do. It seems a bit drastic. Apart from the game, there is not much regular activity in that sub forum, so It doesn't really make sense to negate any accrued post count.
We could lock the word game thread if you feel like it's cheating.

What do you mean? not sure I understand
Could we consolidate sounds in weekly buckets? - rather than going with a randomized option?

Multiple sounds by the same users are already consolidated in the list of most recent sounds.
I think I'm starting to like more the idea of "randomising" this section in a way that we randomly chose X users from the Y users that got at least one moderated sound during the last Z days, and then change this "randomisation" every few hours.
What do you think? I kind of dislike the idea that the front page have "random" sections (besides the random sound of the day), but maybe that would be the most fair option.
we could do that but I think off topic is also part of Freesound and it gives "life" to the site so I think it is totally fine to count this posts

Hey man, I can help you, let me a description and I could be make your sound
You might try pitch shifting or time stretching/compressing washing machine knob and switch sounds. You could also record a hand-brake and apply the same treatment.
Hope this helps.
