I think that is the only joke submission I've made. I always try my best to fill all fields so that Bill and Rebecca wouldn't have to look for them. I don't want to waste their time for stupid submissions. Before the system was taken down I submitted new songs mainly. I had my own rule on what constituted as new. Everything released this and the previous year. So on last day of 2021, anything released in 2021 or 2020 would be new. On the first day of 2022, anything released in 2022 or 2021 would be new. Then I started looking for Ukrainian music because of what is happening there. Something positive to come out of this would be if we were all a bit more knowledgeable of the music created there and maybe something was even added to the playlist. A sort of RP way of showing support. So until the new system is up, here is Ukrainian indie rock.

Not bad; it sounds pretty good for 1998. ...that album art reminds me of something I can't place right now.

If that were a reason... Bill would've killed this station years ago because of all the smart alecks about.

Settle down, Beavis. I was just saying that the Submissions link (which used to be under the "Music" tab at the top of every page), is gone now. You wouldn't know that and I'm not impugning your divination skills, just trying to spin it as maybe Bill saw your post and took away the Submissions link so that no one else would have that problem. But you found a less common way in; I suspect he'll fix that quickly if he sees this.

Saying a website or page is "under construction" is vastly worse than just removing all hints of it until it's ready to go live, IMO. Put a blurb in that FAQ that submissions are on hiatus, but again I'm surmising but I have a hunch that the new system is not a smoking hot priority that's "coming soon" so to have an "under construction" page for 6 months is going to disappoint anyone who checks back repeatedly.




"A blurb in that FAQ that submissions are on hiatus" would be perfect.

I started at https://radioparadise.com/home. Clicked FAQ, which took me to https://radioparadise.com/info... . Then clicked the link for "Submissions," ( https://www.radioparadise.com/music/submissions/submit,) which redirected me back to the home page.
Even if it took me to the "Your favorites" page, I would still wonder if RP was no longer taking submissions.
You seem to be saying that there used to be a more prominent submissions link, which was taken away, and that I should have know that submissions weren't working because the submissions link was missing. But I've been away from Paradise for a while, so I didn't remember where the submissions link used to be.
And had I realized that the submissions link was taken away, my assumption would still be that RP was no longer accepting submissions.
I think an "Under construction" submissions page would be good. I told a musician to submit her stuff to RP, and I would feel bad if she wasted her time searching around for a "Submissions" link.

It's possible you went there from an older iteration of the site, or Bill changed it in the past two hours, but the "submissions" link is now replaced with "your favorites." Or maybe Your Favorites has been there for a while.

Just tried to submit something for the first time ever.  When I tried to access the submission page, I was taken back to the RP main page. A would-be-submitter might assume that you are not taking submissions anymore.
Please put up a placeholder "Under Construction" page where the submission page used to be. Thanks.

Hey everybody. We'll be revamping the whole submissions system sometime soon. Scott is right that it's a bit of a ghost town over there at the moment.

Was this jewel released during Kanye's pro-Trump phase? That would explain things.

Also: can you really have manic depression and make something this boring?
