Hi guys

I hope as many people as possible read this post simply because i don't want to offend anyone by changing the ways i've done things since i joined !
To better explain I must begin by stating that i've reached a point where i follow so many people, who upload so much fantastic music that if i want to be able to listen, play, record & upload myself, i can't keep commenting as i've always done - each an individual comment to each template, mix or response !

If i keep doing things this way, it cuts brutally on my playing/recording/uploading time so i will try to start commenting slightly more.. ''generically'' ?.. so it's still clear i payed attention, listened & liked the upload while hopefully cutting back on time i spend doing so.

I apologise but it's just too much music to keep up & i always end up playing catch-up A LOT of the time, specially if i have a couple of busier days - something which during tourist season here will happen more often than the rest of the year.. :(

I hope you understand my reasoning & take no offence for none is meant, on the contrary..

Cheers guys

plenty of time to rest when i'm dead...

I totally understand what you're saying, Nuno. It's getting that way for me. I'm following so many great players that it's almost a full-time job to respond to their uploads and comments. If someone uploads against a template I'm involved in, I consider it rude not to respond or provide feedback, so I do prioritise those as a matter of courtesy. If someone has made the effort to be involved in something I'm involved in, the least I can do is acknowledge their effort.

It is difficult, though. I"d been away from the loops for 36 hours earlier this week and I had over 40 comments and uploads to contend with - it took me an hour just to do that! I hate to seem rude or arrogant to anyone but I inevitably miss stuff. I really try not to.

I also understand where you are coming from. i try to keep up with as many tracks as I can but that is impossible to do and play to. I do know by all your comments in the past how you feel about the players on the wiki loops so with that said I myself know if you listen to my tracks just a thumbs up is enough. That alone says how you feel about the tracks. I leave compliments when I can and also have to cut my listening short to have time to play. I would like to comment on tracks that are really good or the ones that I feel could help the artist tune their playing. No offence taken jam on nuno

Man, relaxe! There is no need to apologize for not commenting tracks. and it is also not necessary with his instrument to complement each track! My Opinion !! ;)
Rockin´ in a free world !
