>there will never again be multiple daily mediafire sharethreads posted by genre
>most newfags currently using this board don't even know about the gigs of music you'd get DAILY from lurking /mu/ a couple years ago
I was so spoiled, it was almost a chore to go through all the share threads, download everything then listen to 300 songs to decide what stayed. And I did it pretty much everyday.
it was also a totally different board back then
right now there's a rhcp and Springsteen thread on the front page, it used to be almost nothing but hyping the latest obscure Swedish asia-centric funk jazz album from the 70´s you'd discovered. that's good and bad though because trying to discuss Thom yorkes latest collection of solo tracks would get your accused of being a dad rock faggot.
I dont remember gorespammer having more than a minimal impact on sharethreads. it was the great mediafire purge that killed them. my old mediafire acc had like 45000 downloads but after it all got zapped I couldnt be bothered to upload stuff any more
>you will never live in the golden age of megaupload again
it was definitely hit or miss. some days there'd be one good sharethread but on weekends it was easy to have 3 sharethread hit bump limit.
>tfw towards the end some anons set up blogs with some kind of archive feature that would let you view sharethread links you'd missed and you could binge download a hundred albums and spend two days just trying out new music
I especially liked the short lived fad of people posting their last.fm's with their shares so you could see if they're taste sucked or not
>the great mediafire purge
That sucked so fucking much. I was despondent for days.
you have to slog through the awful blogs and garbage ridden YouTube channels like the rest of us anon. some people, not me of course, have been known to hold their nose and search out relevant subreddits on that horrible site.
same here man, I had hundreds of albums uploaded and just didnt have the motivation to reup them or start again somewhere else
I dont think mediafire gave a shit until megaupload got busted and all the other filesharing sites shat themselves and started taking stuff down with or without reports
The death of sharethreads was the death of /mu/.
now it's just taste bragging and arguing about genres.
The core group of awesome people who actually loved music and wanted to share it gave way to children who just want to start shit.
Did you ever end up buying it?
I use to share in jazz threads a lot, i would just hit up blogspot and share those links. Felt like a negro god. But people were always grateful.
this is true. The obsession with "brvtul fuckin metul" was insufferable. forgot about that because I never went in those threads but I got the impression your favorite band wasn't a good band unless they were Nordic, unlistenable and confirmed arsonists.
The Golden Age is over.
If you're not on what.cd now, you're fucked.
>tfw when people irl asked were to dl music for free and i just smiled internally and told them to go on piratebay.
god i miss real sharethreads. i remember having acces to some accounts that had mostly every jungle and dnb release ever made
>the majority of my favorite albums haven't been heard by almost anybody on /mu/
>try to make threads discussing my favorite musicians 2-3 replies at most
>decide to share them so maybe other people will discover them and it will possibly lead to better discussion
>get called a spoonfeeder and cancer that's killing /mu/
Idiotic anti-sharing feelings are just as much to blame as fileshare purges
at least their harddrives won't get cluttered by tons of music that they will never listen to again...
You only got a lot of music from sharethreads if you were new anyway. I remember I lurked sharethreads a lot when I was new, then stopped after a couple months unless there was a genre-specific thread that I was interested in. I also stopped making my own sharethreads once people started bitching in them.
When mega got taken down it was like the burning of the Library of Alexandria, all those rare file we'll never see again.
>tfw all those old blogspots with mega links are useless now
