The only thing about this thread is that others have tried it, and there's always those guys who come in and say "REALLY? did we need another thread like this?" and then the moderators proceed to lock it and then we're back to that same sh*tty "rate the song above you" thread.
But yeah, I'm all for this thread because like I said, nobody gives a sh*t about rating music that other people listen to.
Then why even bother posting in the thread? After all, you don't give a sh*t about rating other people's music or people rating yours.
Obviously you can read, just not sure you can comprehend what you're reading.
Like you pointed out yourself, I don't give a sh*t about rating other people's music or people rating mine, hence why I don't see the sense in posting in the other thread. Why would I not post in THIS thread if I don't have to bother rating other people's music in here? You pretty much answered the question yourself
The reason I don't think these threads work is because they do the same thing as the pre-established Rate That Song topic. Rather than expound on your music and share opinions with one another, you do basically the same thing as in the other topic, except you don't even feign interest in each other's music choice. What's the point of a topic like that? It's masturbation. There's five responses to this post and no one even acknowledged anyone else's videos.
Either way, I'll let this go on with this post as a warning: if I catch this becoming a festival of circlejerking I'm going to lock this and you'll be back where you started.
How could this turn into "circlejerking" if nobody cares about what everyone else is listening to? How can ignoring other people's interests be considered "circlejerking"?
I understand your point about the "Rate The Song Above You" topic, but why must we act like we give a sh*t about other people's musical interests when we honestly couldn't care less? The only reason most of us acknowledge the musical interests of others in that topic is simply because we're required to, not because we actually care.
If someone does post something that we share an interest in, than of course we might want to quote their post and acknowledge what they're listening to, but 99% of the time people just reply with "meh, 2/10, not my cup of tea" and then proceed to post their own song.
Just my two cents. It doesn't matter to me either way.
