100%. It’s magical thinking to be coding up massive changes to a site that isn’t actively attracting new users. I’d much rather see time and energy go towards recruiting awesome people to the site. I used to check Hubski every single day at least a dozen times. Now I check once Every other day. Because I know I’m not missing anything. That’s fine. But I don’t think the site is suffering from functionality but rather a lack of people.

Also, fwiw. I too miss ‘spoons and pabs. I still occasionally post to #songsforpabs in the hopes that I am sharing music with my old pal.

Too often I take those posts to #songsforpabs for granted tng. So... Thank you.

I think you're a hell of a sport for assuming the mantle of musical neophyte for people to throw suggestions at.

I resent your sarcasm for I benefit wonderfully from this mantle.

Absolutely zero sarcasm. My point was "hey guise here's a song I think you would like" is done under the aegis of "hey dude who asked about music in 2012 we're still using you as our exemplar."

Hahaha gotcha, I'm always here for it.

Speak for yourself, I’m literally thinking “nowaypablo,” might specifically dig this. But point taken.

To be clear: I think it's hilarious. There's a certain element of "hey olds" that then becomes culture.

Oh, it was definitely started in the spirit of, “I’m gonna show this cool, much younger person, some music they’ve likely never heard.”

kleinbl00, I remember when I originally posted with it cgod pointed out that it read, “songs for punk ass bitches.” This adds to the lore.
