  • Jacquibim Sweet. I think the stickied thread in the forums is a good idea, that way I can put the guidelines in the OP and any questions the users have can be addressed in that same thread. I'll make it up soon and just inform you when, cool?
    June 21 06:17 AM
  • Jacquibim ey bro, sent you an email
    June 20 03:03 AM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Ill just use ever note then. Thanks. I jist hope i didnt look like a jerk or something for defending my review haha. Criticism is always appreciated!
    June 16 04:57 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Thnks for the criticism! Ill check out ever note!
    June 16 04:47 PM
  • hal1ax lol no worries man! thank u anyway
    June 12 08:35 PM
  • hal1ax do you know approximately when i will be able to add artists to the database again? for the past couple days, every time i try to add a new artist it just freezes
    June 12 12:18 AM
  • Jacquibim Hey Jom, you might've noticed by now but I've been trying to add some ensembles to the DB with little success so far. I'm convinced it isn't a character-limit problem (last one I tried adding was only 17 letters), but I digress. If it's annoying any of you guys I'll stop...
    June 10 08:49 AM
  • Ziguvan Sorry for not noticing it, I do understand, but it's weird because the same does not happen to 'Samuel Úria', for example. I'll undo others musicians name. Thanks for the tip, dude. Cheers!

  • SPRFanOf5H http://www.josepvinaixa.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Bahari-Dancing-On-the-Sun-EP-2016-2480x2480.jpg That's the link for the image and thanks man I seriously appreciate it, I'm excited for what the writers think of this Bumbershoot coverage thing because like I've always wanted to further myself writing wise than just music reviews in my music journalism pursuit, so like this would be an honor and help me a lot plus it would be great for everyone else to know the experience.
    May 19 05:19 PM
  • SPRFanOf5H Thanks man for that, I'd love to hear what the writers think about that because for me documenting this experience and everything will definitely be something I'm doing and help a ton for me, especially being an aspiring music journalist. I'd love to see what can happen over this idea especially with it in the blog, also need help on an album image on this album called "Dancing On The Sun" by Bahari, because it didn't load the image and I need help doing that before I post my review for it.
    May 18 10:44 PM
  • brainmelter Success! Ty
    May 16 02:46 PM
  • SPRFanOf5H Hey Jom, I thought I'd ask you for something that maybe you can get as an suggestion? So like I'm attending this Seattle music festival in September called Bumbershoot, Sept. 2-4th, and I'm intending to use this like as also a way to cover the entire experience like writing about it - kinda like you guys did for Coachella. So I thought I'd ask you, what do you think about it? Because I'd love to document this and write about it and send it to you guys and cover like u did with Coachella!

  • toastghost No probs about the FoT review. Saved it, resubbing it now.
    April 26 12:36 AM
  • FreshDelicious If you could my review for Young Thug's album Barter 6, I would appreciate it. thanks a lot!
    April 23 07:46 PM
  • FreshDelicious Hey, I wrote a review and would like to take it down, can you help me with that?
    April 22 05:46 PM
  • Frippertronics care to give some feedback on the deakin review when you got the time? thanks for the feat as well
    April 13 09:41 PM
  • LordePots hilarious that he thinks i actually have the power to do that
    March 31 08:10 PM
  • Tyler. Just 'Tyler.' would be fine i guess. cheers man
    March 31 02:19 PM
  • Tyler. lordepots or someone changed my name. it's hilarious i know but i would really prefer if i wasn't stuck this way. thanks man hope yr doing well
    March 31 12:58 AM
  • Insurrection hey jom, could i get an av change to this? thanks in advance http://i.imgur.com/3xysU5u.gif
    March 16 10:19 PM
  • Atari yeah I actually had a feeling you might review it since you covered the horrible crowes and the gaslight anthem in the past. I thought about it but have a really busy weekend and it looks like the new contrib beachdude might take a stab at it. I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on the album though
    March 11 04:36 PM
  • Atari I think you'll really dig Brian Fallon's new album if you haven't already heard it. Has several guest musicians including Horrible Crowes' guitarist and Butch Walker. hell of a way to start a Friday
    March 11 11:35 AM
  • FourthReich Could i get a mini avatar thank you
    February 29 04:11 AM
  • Nocturnalize Could you wipe my ratings please?
    February 18 08:14 PM
  • Atari THANKS!
    February 18 06:03 PM
  • Atari hey Jom, Id my email address on my profile the other day, and now I don't seem to have access to the staff forums. Is this just something where I have to wait it out?
    February 18 11:45 AM
  • MercuryToHell Thanks man, if it's down to time then naturally I'll keep plugging away and waiting my turn!
    February 14 01:59 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Sorry none of the links I'm sending are working, something's wrong. I'll let you know if I figure it out
    February 13 05:47 PM
  • Arcade is it possible for me to email you a little later on to discuss some stuff?
    February 12 11:34 PM
  • Tyler. So why was the mod kept a secret? I'm just wondering.
    February 12 08:19 PM
  • evilford hey Jom, I was serious about the mod question I asked in the congrats thread or whatever, I'm somewhat interested in being a mod. I've been banned a couple times in the last year lol, but I think one was questionable and one I realize was just stupid and wouldn't be traveling down that path again at all. so anyways, yeah I'm interested in how to go about that, or if you or the powers that be wouldn't find me to be suitable as a mod that's fine too just thought I'd inquire.
    February 12 03:46 PM
  • Jacquibim Ah k, thanks :)
    February 12 03:18 PM
  • MercuryToHell Hey man, thanks for an awesome comprehensive post on applications, and I know you're gonna get bugged to s*** with questions like this, but is there any particular feedback that applies to me? I'm aware I'm fairly new and have very little in the way of buddies with particular members but from a writing angle...? Thanks in advance!
    February 12 01:05 PM
  • Crysis Thanks for everything! Now I can s***post freely again! Those new mods need some hazing.
    February 12 10:31 AM
  • hal1ax ok, thank you!
    February 4 10:29 AM
  • hal1ax how do i avoid error's when submitting lists? I've tried two times to make 101 item lists, that i probably spent 2 hours on with each, and both times upon submission, i just go an error and the lists were never posted. do u think it might have something to do with my browser?
    February 3 11:18 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Hi Jom, for the application results do you feed back to the users account here, send an email or put the results in a news article? I'm new round here you see
    January 30 05:59 AM
  • Frippertronics And done. Hope I put it across well.
    January 27 09:37 PM
  • Frippertronics I'll get to it, just want to change what I'm applying for (not that it'll happen, but I feel like I might as well try and apply for another position)
    January 27 09:12 PM
  • Frippertronics Jom, just wondering how I could go back and edit my application before the deadline. Thanks.
    January 27 09:00 PM
  • FourthReich what's a three letter word for "awesome moderator"?
    January 27 12:51 PM
  • Pangea It worked!
    January 27 09:25 AM
  • Pangea I was making an album list and I was using Firefox as browser. It dit auto-popultate so that seems to be doing fine. I'm gonna try starting the list and editing along the way now
    January 27 08:06 AM
  • Pangea Hallo Jom, just tried to make a list three times but everytime I try to submit something goes wrong and there's some sort of warning and my list doesn't gets posted. Do you know what I might be doing wrong? At first I thought I typed in the albums incorrectly, but I checked very well the last time. Thanks in advance
    January 26 08:13 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yo Jom, I just realized that I could've added something to the last part of my app. Would it be possible to email it to you?
    January 24 12:17 AM
  • deezer666 Hey man, I cant edit like ANY of my lists, Nothing shows up? you know anything about this?
    January 14 07:41 AM
  • Atari thanks so much for the fix Jom, I really appreciate it. Definitely don't mean to be a pest
    January 11 01:28 PM
  • Atari Hey Jom, I don't know if you're still able to edit the contributors' spotlight blog, but if so (and it's not too much trouble) I have a typo in the first paragraph ...it should read it doesn't hurt that the vocalist himself sounds "like" a vile creature. It's my bad, apparently I need to proofread more efficiently. I noticed some other edits u made as well so cheers for that too!
    January 11 10:38 AM
  • manosg Just saw your message on google docs. Happy holidays to you too, Jom!
    December 24 01:38 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sounds good. for future reference, what is your email?
    December 20 09:00 PM
  • FearThyEvil Ok thanks, mate!
    December 16 08:16 PM
  • manosg Problem solved, thanks!
    December 10 08:50 AM
  • manosg Hey Jom. When I log in to the forums I can't see the Contributors Thread like I did in the past. It first happened yesterday. I don't know if it's symptomatic but it happened after I changed my email address through my control panel. Is it something I did or is it a website problem?
    December 10 04:29 AM
  • Jade Hey man! Just wanted to apologize I haven't been too active these days, my final semester in college combined with my serving job has been brutal. Things seem to be calming down, finally - left my last class this morning only to check out the Blurbs thread, hehe. Hope all's well on your end.
    December 7 10:16 AM
  • Metalstyles Hey man, just letting you know that the blog bugs I mentioned are actually still persistent. I just got impatient and uploaded the pictures onto tinypic, and from there via url to the blog, because as I said, you can't still upload any media yourself. Also, it's impossible to center pictures with captions and videos - they appear fine in the "visual" view, but the previewer and eventual upload fail to register their, um, centerness. But yeah, otherwise everything else seemed to work fine :)
    December 2 04:20 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah fingers crossed
    November 17 03:17 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot is something up with Dev health-wise?
    November 17 08:13 AM
  • SPRFanOf5H2 Hey Jom. I need help retrieving my original SPRFanOf5H account. I can't access it and I don't remember the email in which I had to reset the password. I wanted to move it to a new email so I can reset the email and re access my original account instead of the one im using now. I'd be so grateful if you could help me retrieve this and help me use my old account again!
    November 13 02:40 PM
  • Essence Thanks Jom! Have a swell weekend
    October 23 11:25 PM
  • Essence Hey Jom, sorry to go to the source like this, I tried posting in for the meds, but apparently I can't make forum posts. My original issue is that I appear unable to change my avatar. I had another question but this is long already. Thanks in advance
    October 23 08:16 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah. I'm nervous in general, but ready for change. I really hope the educational sector sees improvement - planning on teaching once my degree is finally complete.
    October 21 12:58 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I think a lot of people are impatient (at least where I live: Alberta). people are pronouncing the end of all things Canadian when Trudeau hasn't even been in office a full day. So, a lot of his investment plans might not win over the more skeptical voters. I'm glad Harper is out as well, though yeah, he was very civil about it. It would've been nice if NDP got more seats. Yeah... gonna be an interesting 4 years.
    October 21 12:41 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thoughts on the election?
    October 20 09:51 AM
  • CamiloG You were right Jom, you need one of each (news, album edits, band edits tags) for them to appear in the profile. Thanks a lot for your help.
    October 18 08:44 PM
  • CamiloG Thanks a lot for your attention Jom, I'll be contributing as much as I can wether it appears or not :)
    October 18 11:01 AM
  • CamiloG Hi Jom, I wrote you some time ago about an issue with contributions being displayed on my profile. I'm pretty sure I've made more than 10 as you told me to, but still nothing shows up. I appreciate your attention.
    October 16 08:21 PM
  • SgtPepper no luck unfortunately.
    October 5 01:27 PM
  • SgtPepper hey jom. thanks for the doing the name change btw, i appreciate it. although the change seems to only show in the forums but not the review site. maybe i did something wrong, like maybe log in when i wasnt supposed to. can this be fixed? if not then ill stick with what i have.
    October 4 06:29 PM
  • CamiloG Thanks a lot for the answer man! Hope you have a nice day.
    September 29 11:45 AM
  • CamiloG Good morning Jom, I was wondering how the Band edits tags and album edits count works, because I've made a couple of contributions but they doesn't appear on my profile page. Sorry in advance if this is not the appropriate space to ask this question, but I'm new around here, well at least since I'm being active I the site. Thank you for the attention.
    September 29 03:46 AM
  • TheSonomaDude Thanks bro you're pretty cool
    September 25 09:41 PM
  • evilford ok sounds good, thanks for the, just was curious. have a good one.
    September 25 04:19 PM
  • evilford lol. so are they/you looking to get it fixed at some point?
    September 25 04:16 PM
  • evilford hey Jom friend, how are you? hope you are well. hey, I was just curious about what's going on with the last.fm stuff on the prof pages if you know? i.e. it's not even there anymore. for a long time it was just messed up and now that section is gone altogether, do you know if this is going to be fixed? just curious cuz that's really the only place I ever look at my plays.
    September 25 03:28 PM
  • CrimsonLies Hi Jom, I got banned over a year ago for talking back to a mod over accidentally adding a duplicate album (or something along those lines). It would be much appreciated if I could be unbanned from the forums, so I can add an avatar. Thanks.
    September 25 01:32 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot (I did a similar thing with new Prurient and it went over fine, but just thought I'd double-check.)
    September 20 11:20 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Sup, Jom. Is there any issue with Contribs submitting reviews for releases before the release date if we have a promo copy? I know with Staff it's usually fine. The album in question is the new Black Wing (out Sept 25) and the promo people at Flenser hooked me up. I'll probably hold off until maybe a day or so before release, but figured I'd see what you thought.
    September 20 11:20 PM
  • SmileNerd Oh. So it wasn't you who wiped me? Was it the other mod?
    September 18 05:11 PM
  • SmileNerd Hey man, I was wondering why all of my ratings were wiped again? I understand why they were the first time, that was completely my fault. But what did I do this time? Thanks.
    September 18 03:13 PM
  • Britch2tiger Much appreciated for the head's up, fellow account. But is this "violation" being disciplined for rating EVERY album? I know I've yet to hear certain Kidz Bop and Now (US) albums, mainly b/c it's either outside my of my music orientation or they are VERY hard to find in their entirety.
    September 17 03:49 AM
  • Britch2tiger Policy? Know a tab or route to follow so I can read about this?I admit it's a pain to refresh my page every few months, but if the artist/group is not that bad, I implore others to rate the albums as they are. Otherwise I ask, if numerous accounts start this same trend, the site admins will just erase their ratings, too? If so, that's highly prejudicial...
    September 16 01:03 AM
  • Britch2tiger So just to be clear regarding my rate(s) vanishing: just b/c I wind up rating a large number of albums of the same group/band I can get the ratings on my account wiped away? Cause of so - WTF!?As account/user-s we are entitled to our opinions
    September 15 09:31 PM
  • deezer666 Im good to go man, Thanks for the quick response.
    September 12 05:26 PM
  • deezer666 For some reason I cant post in the forums, never been banned as far as I know, Only just tried to post for first time. Can you sort this out for me man if poss. Cheers.
    September 12 03:52 AM
  • Futures hey jom if you could unban my forum account that would be cool appreciate it
    September 11 11:07 PM
  • Keyblade hey sup jom. i posted a bit of a suggestion/feedback on the tagging system in the meds thread. not sure i posted it in the right place tbh, but i'd love to hear your thoughts on it
    September 11 04:56 AM
  • DaveyBoy Having just listened to the Strung Out LP and loved it (spot on review btw), a reco for you (if you have yet to hear it): Atlas Losing Grip - Currents. Less consistent, but more diverse than the SO LP, but roughly the same style of music.
    August 28 10:29 AM
  • SgtPepper thanks for the help. i'll download mozilla tonight. cheers.
    August 17 08:12 PM
  • SgtPepper hey, jom. the spacing between the paragraphs did not go through on my recent news article, and i dont want to touch it because the last time i tried to edit an article, the lines broke. i dont remember how to get around the issue. help, please? i?m sorry man haha and i feel embarrassed asking this. thanks in advance.
    August 17 09:42 AM
  • Thealwaysopenedmind I thought about the fact that the Madvillain tracks were leaked when I was posting. Sorry if that's an issue. I just like contributing to the site and was eager to get a chance to put some interesting news up.
    July 24 02:50 PM
  • Tunaboy45 That would definitely be better (I always hated the "BC"), glad I could help!
    July 22 03:19 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Yeah I thought I'd have a go since they're officially not using the "B.C" anymore but I'd forgotten that "Ghost" already had a page. Thanks for the heads up! (sorry if I almost messed everything up too)
    July 22 02:12 PM
  • Guzzo10 Haha, I actually already did. I was just seeing if someone else was going to be able give the album some exposure.
    July 6 01:10 PM
  • Guzzo10 Hey Jom, quick question. Do you know if any staffers are going to write a review for Miguel's new album? It's a fantastic album getting a lot of press on every major website except for Sputnik, so I was just wondering if it was going to get any facetime. Thanks!
    July 5 08:57 PM
  • Kris. gracias!!
    June 23 07:17 PM
  • PanasonicYouth hello jombomb. i come requesting the revival of my kris. account on both the review site and forums as i wish for my self-exile to end. thanks bud :3
    June 23 06:50 PM
  • Jade Sent!
    June 22 11:22 PM
  • Jade No reason to worry, I promise! What's that email again? I'll send one your way later tonight.
    June 22 07:47 PM
  • Jade Hey man, I was wondering if I could shoot you an email sometime soon. Some things I'd like to talk to you about regarding my role on this here beloved site, hehe.
    June 22 02:47 PM
  • Insurrection Are there any plans for opening up that feature to contribs? I mean the whole reason it was taken out was because a couple users abused it ages ago. it would be nice to have that option again
    June 4 07:18 PM
  • Insurrection Hello Jom. I have a Muse review queued up and ready to go and was wondering if I can rate it a 3.2 without getting my head bitten off :| mainly cause I have T2L rated at a 3 and i want people to know this one's better
    June 4 04:21 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hey Jom, just curious and I might be wrong, but I think I saw somewhere that you once had a review for Modest Mouse's Good News for People Who Love Bad News on this site? Did you used to have way more reviews than you do now? You seem to have wiped most of your profile clean over the years.
    May 31 12:36 PM
  • jmnewcomer18 Hey bud. Would you mind giving me a ratings wipe? I'd like to start over fresh since I just started being active a week ago, after about a year and a half of being gone.
    May 25 03:52 AM
  • DaveyBoy Where did all your ratings go? It's too cool to do a ratings wipe. And I'd rather be cool by being uncool... I think.
    May 12 10:02 AM
  • evilford just tried it on my phone and it doesn't happen but it happens on all of our computers wtf
    April 23 09:59 AM
  • evilford I'm at work on a PC. I had one of my friends try to pull it up on her computer and the same thing happened to her
    April 23 09:55 AM
  • evilford hey jom, is the website having issues? anytime I try to go anywhere on the website besides to a user's profile page, I'm being immediately redirected to some website like back.hannahliu.com or something and I can't avoid it or go back...
    April 23 09:27 AM
  • evilford definitely is :] same to you sir
    April 21 11:35 AM
  • evilford jom you rule. that is all
    April 20 11:58 PM
  • fromtheinside is it ok for my next bday i get to 1 white pony
    April 17 02:35 PM
  • paradox1216 Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be a contributing reviewer =) I appreciate it an incredible amount and won't let you guys down! new material is definitely what I work with the best, but like manosg I plan to write more reviews of past albums as well.
    April 12 04:07 AM
  • manosg Thanks Jom. No worries, I actually enjoy covering new material because I'm "forced" to write non-positive reviews and I have the opportunity to connect with the modern scene. Classic stuff is definitely part of my "diet" as well so I'll find a way to incorporate them to my reviewing schedule.
    April 12 01:51 AM
  • Tunaboy45 Sorry about yesterday man, we cool? Either way, it says I should be unbanned now. Won't happen again.
    April 7 07:11 PM
  • Slut making my way through school, things are good i suppose. I hope you're doing well
    April 5 10:50 PM
  • Slut Hey buddy
    April 1 03:03 PM
  • Metalstyles Thanks for the answer. I'll just ask the dude and hope he gets back to me before April 1st. If he doesn't, I can always hope that the track's on spotify. If that's a negative as well, let's just upload my lossy version. There's only so many albums I've gotten excited about this year thus far that the track itself must stay!
    March 30 07:20 PM
  • Metalstyles Oh and another thing, if it's known that an artist isn't against people posting his stuff on youtube, does that make it okay for us to share those links, or is that still too ambiguous and just not a risk worth taking? Because one of the songs I picked (from an artist who has shared youtube uploads from regular users in the past) has a decent youtube version, but it's not uploaded by an official channel.
    March 30 09:26 AM
  • Metalstyles Hey, just letting you know that I'll be sending my mp3s to you later today just in case (around midnight CET), but if you can find them on spotify (I don't use it so I don't really know whether they're on there or not), I'd say take from there instead. Both of my picked songs are on the long side and while I got the files below 15mb, they inevitably don't sound as good as they do on record.
    March 30 09:23 AM
  • zakalwe Cheers dude
    March 20 05:05 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot all good man, keep me posted. if need be, I'll just re-submit and you can the old one or whatever works
    March 16 11:37 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot "mx is working on a fix" ok nvm, guess I'll just hold tight
    March 16 11:35 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot lol, well if you're willing to re-feature it then that'd be cool (no need to inconvenience jeremy for something fairly minor).
    March 16 11:33 PM
  • Frippertronics d-damn... But yeah, thanks again.
    March 15 08:47 PM
  • Frippertronics fine jom, though it is an accurate commentary on the user's arguments toward opinions, music, etc. thanks though.
    March 15 08:33 PM
  • Insurrection Hey Jom, could my EP list be featured please? Put some solid hours into it. http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=156958
    March 15 04:50 AM
  • Arcade I like to think my time saving properties are integral to my contributor status.
    March 15 03:12 AM
  • Frippertronics yeah i know. i thought stuff like 1 review a day was common courtesy that was pretty much implied and didn't need explained. guess not...
    March 15 12:22 AM
  • Arcade the stupidity it exuded left me with an intense nosebleed, so i'd advise against watching it for more than 90 seconds tbqh
    March 14 07:55 PM
  • Arcade http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2jf2ns_sputnikmusic-com-relevant-or-ridiculous_fun - some controversial and damning words
    March 14 09:16 AM
  • oahmed Hey Jom, I was planning on writing a review for an album that was released last year but wasn't reviewed on the site. If I apply to be a contributor in the future, would this review count as new music or old music? I know there's probably much more to consider to an application than just this and the writing quality, but I figured I'd just ask. Thanks in advance!
    March 10 02:56 PM
  • zaruyache You are my god. Thanks!
    March 1 11:11 PM
  • zaruyache Sorry to bother you but for some reason I 1) can't post on the forums (idk why), and I can't post there to ask about 2) not being able to change my avatar. Pls halp [heart emoticon]

  • manosg Thanks! I corrected the release date as it was set at the European one.
    February 26 10:29 AM
  • manosg Hey Jom, hope everything is ok. I'm preparing a review for Melechesh - Enki which is about to be released tomorrow in Europe but on March 2 in the UK and March 10 in the US. I'll probably have the review ready by tomorrow or Saturday and I was wondering when the right date is to upload it.
    February 26 08:40 AM
  • ZackSh33 Thanks for the feedback!
    February 25 10:37 AM
  • Insurrection Ty Jom. One more minor thing, idk if its just me but on my profile the pics of the album reviews dont appear. Is that fixable?
    February 25 08:08 AM
  • Insurrection Oddly enough my muse review was overtaken by a user review. This site is confusing sometimes i tell ya
    February 25 06:59 AM
  • ZackSh33 Hi JomProbably old news to you by this point, but I'd love to know where I stand in terms of getting onto contribs in the future. I didn't apply for this past cycle, but I would still really like to know if I have a chance with my current stack of reviews going forward. Thanks as always for keeping the site running as smoothly as possible!

  • michaelmyerstbh yeah exactly wish i was given a heads up, you too man.
    February 24 08:37 AM
  • michaelmyerstbh just seen your shouts on somebodys shout box laying down the law and being fair instead of just banning. u pretty awesome
    February 24 05:08 AM
  • Jacquibim No worries m8, sent
    February 21 06:18 AM
  • ScuroFantasma Hey Jom (following the greetings tradition below), how are you? Just inquiring about the promo cycle. Mark said it helped him last time to get feedback about it so I thought why not? I can probably guess the reason I didn't get it was probably due to not reviewing much newer material? But yeah just curious so any pointers would be appreciated, thanks a bunch (:
    February 21 04:24 AM
  • Frippertronics hey jom, you able to go over some of my past few reviews (the enid, todd rundgren) and give me some tips on how to get better. this past promo cycle got me thinking, and i feel like it just slipped right in between my fingers.
    February 21 12:01 AM
  • Jacquibim Hey dude, where can I find your email so I can inquire about the promotions.
    February 20 06:55 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hi Jom, I sent you an email and was just making sure you got it and I had the right address
    February 20 06:03 PM
  • Insurrection Hey jom, just wondering why my periphery Omega review was de-flagged :|
    February 20 02:01 PM
  • Gyromania hey jom. having trouble signing in to my email at the moment, so i thought i'd drop a message here. i'm going to send that app to you soon (because you mentioned the possibility of a ghost promotion) and that way i'll have it on file, and i'll just continue writing and hope for the best in the future. cheers.
    February 20 12:25 PM
  • mryrtmrnfoxxxy damn even closer than i thought wow ill keep workin on it!!!
    February 20 12:25 PM
  • JamieTwort Thanks Jom.
    February 20 12:19 PM
  • mryrtmrnfoxxxy hi buddy how close am i to emeritues
    February 20 12:11 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cheers!
    February 20 08:34 AM
  • iswimfast No worries, just wanted to make sure I sent it to the right place! Thanks!
    February 9 08:14 AM
  • iswimfast Hey Jom, just want to double check if you got my application via email?
    February 9 08:03 AM
  • Rowan5215 That's fair enough - just making sure I knew the rules thoroughly. Cheers for the help
    February 7 09:48 PM
  • Rowan5215 So this still applies even if I have a legitimate press release that the record label's sent out to the magazine? That's a bummer
    February 6 11:49 PM
  • Rowan5215 So just to make sure I got this straight - while I'm still a regular user I can pretty much copy and paste it, but if I got promoted in the future (not that I'm hinting at anything here) I can still review stuff that isn't out yet as long as I change the review reasonably?
    February 6 08:45 PM
  • Rowan5215 Yo Jom, I get early access to some music because of my magazine reviewing job, was wondering what the rules are if I wanted to post some of my reviews on here as well as there? My last one was for an EP that doesn't come out till March
    February 6 05:23 AM
  • Guzzo10 Thank you! And I'm planning on reapplying. My and FromDaHood are/were the only 2 Contribs that reviewed Hip-Hop, and I plan to continue reviewing the genre. Again, thanks for understanding and I'll put that application in right now.
    February 5 04:59 PM
  • Futures lol whatever. also wondering why my ratings were wiped when i did neither of those? hmmmm. you hate me that much that you need to wipe my ratings for no legitimate reason?
    February 5 12:42 AM
  • Frippertronics hmm, maybe a pair of these bad boys will keep you at bay from that impression ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fP4emqw7O4
    February 4 11:41 PM
  • Frippertronics surely, though I will be swift in my overt criticism of this being they call "em exx"
    February 4 11:32 PM
  • Frippertronics I knew it'd be soon, but the time has finally come - mx is doing something ! Am I dreaming, Jombomb?
    February 4 11:22 PM
  • Futures i mean ok fine. but this time i simply reported troll ratings from a user i've never even talked to. is that a problem?
    February 4 11:20 PM
  • Insurrection Touche, touche
    February 4 11:18 PM
  • Insurrection I cant tell if im dreaming but... is mx actually doing s***?
    February 4 10:52 PM
  • Futures can i not report troll ratings anymore? i've been banned from the forums for that reason.
    February 4 10:20 PM
  • Guzzo10 So I understand the demotion (or at least if its because I only wrote 7 reviews this year, I understand it), but all of my reviews are no longer the featured review for the album. Why is that? Just wondering because a lot of the reviews that took its place aren't that great, so an explanation would be great.
    February 4 10:58 AM
  • FromDaHood This applies not only to demotions but also album dibs. I felt really demotivated when I would prepare a review and then see someone, usually Rudy, beat me to posting. Didn't see the point in trying to make new content if a staffer was silently doing a better job than me. Sorry for triple post.
    February 4 12:06 AM
  • FromDaHood I'm not blaming or anything, coming to you just because you made the promotion thread but: don't you think it was a bit unceremonious to just cut 15 contribs with no warning? Especially a week after the User's Best Of list got published? In my case, I know I have 2 reviews in the past year but I know others had like 15 and helped with the User's List so nobody really knows why this happened and I think I speak for contribs past
    February 4 12:03 AM
  • ADanceReturns Man that would be awesome honestly !
    February 2 12:15 PM
  • ADanceReturns My account is dancedrewdance and I got banned for being an idiot lol but thanks for answering me I just asked because I wanted to make sure some of my lists stay up (concerts I attended) for awhile so I can write them down somewhere else!
    February 2 11:13 AM
  • ADanceReturns Will my banned account ratings stay forever or does every inactive account eventually get wiped with their ratings ?
    February 2 03:21 AM
  • SPRFanOf5H hey im trying to write an application but i cant post on the thread. it says i cant post anything. Can u help fix that for me? thanks man
    February 2 02:15 AM
  • JM18 Thanks man!
    January 29 06:27 PM
  • JM18 Hey man. My original account "jmnewcomer18" was banned about a year ago and I haven't been too active ever since then. It was my first offense. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind unbanning me. Thanks in advance, man.
    January 29 05:16 AM
  • Brostep hey, I emailed you (jom.sputnikmusic@gmail) about a potential letter of recommendation for some internships I'm applying for. not sure if it's the correct email address though so let me know if you got it
    January 17 03:35 PM
  • Ineedabettername Yeah, I've never been good at coming up with names.
    January 15 06:06 PM
  • Ineedabettername I've been told you could change names. If you could change mine to "Ineedabettername" that be nice. Thanks from the future
    January 14 09:29 PM
  • HalfManHalfAmazing hey man, thanks! i actually forgot that i changed my email account a month or so back, haha. thanks for all the help!
    January 9 01:25 AM
  • HalfManHalfAmazing Hey Jom, I heard you were someone who could help me. I've been trying to change my avatar, but I'm not able to for whatever reason. On top of that, it seems as if I'm not allowed to post in the forums. Is there any reason as to why this is so?
    January 8 10:48 PM
  • fromtheinside yes please jom. harrisondamon7@gmaili feel like i need all of your recs now as well
    January 4 03:14 AM
  • MyNameIsPencil Thank you!
    December 31 03:42 PM
  • Rowan5215 No problems man
    December 16 03:30 PM
  • Jade I sent you an email with the MP3s for the albums ive written about. Feel free to let me know if there are any issues with it / if you need anything else!
    December 15 03:43 PM
  • SowingSeason Thanks man that means a lot! Figured I'd try something different.
    December 6 01:49 AM
  • Mongi123 Agreed man, I knew I wouldn't be here forever and I've had tons of fun finding new stuff finding out I can write and meeting new people. But that's good to know. Definitely not right this second but I'll definitely let you know if I think I'm gonna have a long absence :) most likely in January though.
    November 30 09:53 PM
  • Mongi123 Hey dude I wanted to ask you this personally: I know there's prob a day where I won't use sput anymore, and I can feel that the day is coming pretty soon considering how busy my next semester will be. What are the guidelines for contrib? Say I wouldn't review nearly as much and I'd occasionally pop up to review every so often. Would you have to make me emeritus?
    November 30 09:36 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man. probably a dumb question, but sometimes there is contradicting info for release dates... like, the release date on the website is different from wikipedia or w/e. anyway, what's the best option to choose? I edited my Ariel Pink review to say Nov 17 but I've seen Nov 18 in some places. probably a trivial thing, but for the sake of accuracy what would you suggest?
    November 18 09:33 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. I asked because I've finished a review for an album that recently became available on digital platforms, but it doesn't have a physical release until the end of the month. Am I in the clear to post it?
    November 12 04:58 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yo Jom, do Spotify streams count as "official" album streams?
    November 12 01:59 PM
  • Eleven13 Thanks for the quick response I appreciate it! It is now working, thanks a lot for the help!
    November 11 04:33 PM
  • Eleven13 Hey Jom, sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this, I just couldn't find any other way to get in touch with a moderator. For some reason my account has zero access to the community forums, I can't create or reply to any topics at all. I was just wondering if there was a reason for this or if there was something I didn't do to activate my posting ability? Thanks
    November 11 02:09 PM
  • Gyromania hey jom. i sent you an email, just letting you know because i'm not sure how frequently you check your inbox
    November 9 12:26 AM
  • Winsomniac Pls halp abolish Sputnik racism #BlackTheme #MyEyes #Aughh
    November 7 11:18 AM
  • Frippertronics Alright Jom, I got both the Scott O))) and Flaming Lips reviews up. Just letting you know in case you're interested in checking them out.
    October 26 03:30 PM
  • Kris. gosh darn it i love you
    October 24 05:08 PM
  • MrElmo Hello my main user account TheBarber has now been banned for a little more than a month and I never got to know for what reason or for how long (and do not appear in the banned users thread); could it please be possible to be unbanned now sir? If that cannot be possible could I at least have the specifics as to why or for how long the ban will remain? Thank you for your time
    October 18 07:41 AM
  • GnarlyShillelagh Sent you an email with a q3 tape blurb. Sorry it's so late, I hope it's okay :(
    September 30 04:49 PM
  • Metalstyles And I appreciate your appreciation. Everybody wins!
    September 29 02:21 PM
  • Metalstyles Alright, I sent my stuff, let me know if you got everything and if any problems occurred.
