Icon5 why are listening booth titles changed?

Hi.

Why are some listening booth post titles edited to include the poster's name?

the author of the post is already displayed beneath the post so this editing seems unneeded and also sometimes makes the tune title confusing.

i thought we were just supposed to include "[genre]" and then the tune name and that's it. since when are we supposed to include our names?

seems wierd. also it's not happening consistently across the board.

No idea about thread titles changing but the standard format as per the rules is as follows:

Not everybody uses their forum name as their artist name.
It's not that big a deal though, sometimes admin can be arsed to change the titles and sometimes they can't.

ok thanks. i guess it's just now starting to be partialy enforced by a mod somewhere.

i still think it's a little bit redundant to have the artist's name there unless we are posting up somebody else's track (rare). the author of the post is usually the author of the tunes.

it's not like these are radio station captions. ok oh well.

It's been enforced for a long time, then forgotten about then enforced, forgotten, enforced and so on.
What's your specific issue?
Is someone adding your name to thread titles and you don't think it's required or what?

i'm just used to it not being enforced.

i've been coming here for several years (i used to be BlackBurst and AstroIDMist) and this is the first time I've ever had it enforced on me or seen it enforced on anybody.

sure, i can adjust, it's just silly in my opinion. i'll live. no "issue" just a commonplace complaint.

Yeah, I know who you are guy.
LB rules were posted on 12-16-2013.
At one point we'd just delete the tracks because there were so many that it was easier for us and re enforced the rules, so if you're thread is only being renamed consider yourself lucky.

I change titles in order to stick to forum rules. Anyone who sticks to this simple rule below will not have their titles changed into correct ones:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


If error keeps repeating, I will let you know or I will remove the post (that goes for all users/posts in the LB).

Re: why are listening booth titles changed?

OP, I think the normal option would have probably been to just remove your LB thread. Whoever did it was doing you a favor so it didn't get deleted, probably.

Re: why are listening booth titles changed?

Also, Nystagmus, I think it's just that you've noticed it now personally that..well..you've noticed it. It's been like that for as long as I can remember.

Personally, I think keeping tracks named in the format outlined in the forum rules helps keep track of who's who..I mean, sometimes..as was mentioned already..members use different names to those they use on here, so when you go to SC or wherever, it's handy to know the name they are releasing their work under..kinda common sense really I think.
