Hi

I would to help keeping clean up trhe WL by deleting some of my recorded tracks, but what're the right criterias to select what to delete?

So, I ask you help me to find out those criterias I need to apply.

I thought about theese criterias:
1. Quality: my first tracks were not well recorded e mixed
2. Stats: Tracks with 0 dowloads that for any reason don't satisfy me anymore (even this criteria could be a bit risk because I downloaded and played more tracks with 0 downloads)
3. my experiments



Any consideration about is very welcomed :)


-----
Updated the above criterias after considering the post of GBD and GlezBass.

Thank you :)

Hey, you can delete any of your tracks provided nobody has remixed them already, as simple as that :) . The only reason we will delete a track that has already been remixed is when there is a copyright issue.

I hope this answers your question :)

Yes TeeGee :)

I know that I can delete only my track with no remix branches, thnx :)


Why do you could delete a your own track?
What's the drive that makes you to take that choice?


Thnx :)

I only delete a track if I uploaded, and then found it had a big mistake (instrument missing, or even I uploaded the wrong track or maybe a really bad mistake). But that usually happens the same day after I upload. But other than that I personally don't delete tracks...

Just deleted 2 tracks today that I uploaded Sunday. No “down loads” so no one should be working on them.
I wasn’t satisfied with my vocals and would like to try again.

(Note) If you click on a "Deleted Track This is the response.

"Sorry,it seems this track belongs to a band project to which you have not been invited, it should not have showed up on your newsfeed, sorry bout that"

It should also say (May have been Deleted)

GDB thnx :)

You helped me to make a better focus on my second criteria: doesn't matter the number of feedback. The number of downloads really indicate if someone is working on the track.

The criteria that you have commented are all valid in my opinion: quality of the recording, final personal satisfaction, confusion in the upload to the tree of jams, of course copyrights ... maybe not working with the jam is the least appropriate because I I have worked with tracks from years ago not downloaded by anyone, WL becomes a true library of good templates and jams over the years ....
maybe the self-criticism is the most sensible criterion, if you do not like the author maybe nobody likes it ... :)

Zero downloads should NOT matter, guys! (Zero plays, probably, but see my argumentation below)

First of all, someone may be jamming along some particular tracks every day without having a confident ability to improve them -- thus, they ask themselves: "why download"?

Second, someone can (and, probably, will) stumble upon your tracks couple of years from now. Leave it for them! <3

And third, most important -- just revisit your old tracks in 6-9-12 months. You will definitely see which ones you don't like being public anymore.

We get all enthused about our latest add too a great song ---- and then 2 days later you listen and you start hearing all kinds of bad timing, missed notes, wrong scale...... noisey recording and you don't feel the love you felt before ...... if you kept the project.... DELETE your track and fix what was bothering you.......Sometimes though it's hard to enter into the same "place" you were when you were recording the first time......I think that's why it's really good to record something...... go to the bathroom.....You know......when you come back your enamored ears are ready to hear where the track is at ---at that point is a good time to fix places--- when your ears are fresh.....sometimes I think a 2nd guitar intro is so cool and on 2nd listen --I totally scratch that and redo in a totally different style/direction to give the song the flow it needs......I guess my point is try not to upload too quickly .......... wikiloops will keep churning till your happy with it!

With you, it's got nothing to do with the music, it all depends on which Avatar you are using. When it's the scary one, no likes :D :D :D
