MP3-forum (Poisonoise) update! 2021-11-24

Post by DaN »


As of November 2021, These are the new, updated guidelines for our good ol' Poisonoise subforum. 2 major changes are now in effect:

A: You are now welcome to post download-links anywhere on the forum, as long as you highlight the link and then click the little padlock-icon above the text-area. The (hide)xxx(/hide)-tags will now hide whatever you put inbetween them from non-registered users.

The main reason for this change is that we can now avoid having both a discussion-thread and a download-thread on the same subject. Praise hail order & consistency!

B: Poisonoise is now visible to guests and bots, but most live download links should be hidden. If I've missed any, please report the post (click the "!"-icon) or pm me and I'll fix it.


"So.. umm... DaN? Do I still use Poisonoise for uploads then?"
You can, yes. If you just wanna share something cool or reply to a request, this is still the perfect forum for it. If what you're sharing is a response to something in a different thread elsewhere, you might as well keep it there. Or if you're looking for a deeper discussion or trying to find answers concerning the artist or recording, Into Battle or Metal Conquest might fit better. Use your imagination..



--- The Rules remain pretty much the same as before, albeit a bit more lenient... ---


1a. Please DO NOT post any of the direct download links elsewhere. Instead, post a link to the thread and invite them to join us ("Jooooin uuuuusss..."). Unless the poster says otherwise you are of course welcome to share and trade the actual music as you please.

1b. ...and of course, in reverse, do not post download links taken from other sites as your own. Post the link to the site where the link is found (i.e. NOT the direct download link) in the request thread instead. This way feedback will go to the right person.

2. No commercially available recordings. Albums/demos which has only been bootleged are of course allowed - nay - encouraged to be uploaded.

3. Give feedback - good or bad. This is after all a discussion board.

4. If you need help/tips with ripping vinyl and tapes, cleaning audio and/or uploading, post a question in the Killing Technology-forum.

5. All requests not relevant to a certain thread should be posted in the requests-thread.

Oh, and Rule #0, again: USE THE HIDE-FUNCTION ON YOUR LINKS.

Amen to that! When I used to use Soulseek I would occasionally settle for mp3s at 128, but I was always amazed at how many I would find at even lower quality! I mean, it's not bad for just checking out a band just to hear what they sound like, but why bother keeping that crap on your hard drive?

What about require the poster to leave the details year, country and songlist? Pretty annoying to browse all those "XXXXX, requested by XXXXX"-threads with no further information.

It has come to my attention that some people have signed up here, posted 25 useless one-liners in a matter of minutes and then going straight to this subforum for the goodies. I'm gonna start deleting their accounts right now. Please help me spot them if they return.

Why can't 192 Kps Mp3 archives be posted? I've read what you wrote Dan but frankly the quality isn't that bad... Why archives with higher bitrates have superior quality? Hope you adress my question. Bye.

192 kps is quite alright, but bitrates below this level is where things start getting crappy. Just listen to the high end of 128 rips (cymbals, aucustic guitars etc..) and you'll see what I mean.
