#tit4tat time?

Skip to the bottom

  • @wolfkier Feb 22

    I've started this a few years now on both FAWM and 50/90.
    As the end of another FabFeb approaches you might be close to done and looking for folks to listen to (in a daunting sea of 10000+ songs) and, perhaps, looking for more folks to listen / comment on yours.
    * If you agree to reciprical listen/comments, chime in to this thread.
    * Check the list, go listen, in your comment include the hashtag #tit4tat. They visit you back.
    * You could use the tag to keep count. eg: #tit4tat1, #tit4tat2, etc.
    * This might be as little as 1 trade or continue for as many times as you have songs to trade or the mutual time/will to proceed.
    * tell a FAWM friend about this b4 they leave the site. They might deserve/need the listens and enjoy what they find that's new!

    > In my case I have 7 to trade (happily) and for my part, I'll continue reciprocating through til the FAWM site closes April 14.

    Also: to clarify, if you'd only like to do a certain number of exchanges, any number, just let the trading partner know in your first tit4tat initiating visit or reciprocal response. for example at the end of your song comment write :"#tit4tat1 - I'm good to go to x songs, what about you?" .

  • @wolfkier Feb 22

    * Spare post if I need it for list of participants.

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 22

    Always.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 22

    Always enjoyed this and like you made some good friends doing this! And of course heard some awesome music!

  • @wolfkier Feb 23

    And we're off to the reciprocal listening races!
    Thank you @bradbrubaker and @coolparadiso !
    Happy to report participants so far are true to their promise and have much that's yummy to trade. Anyone else want in?

  • @mandolinda  Feb 23

    This sounds like a splendid opportunity to learn more about making music.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 23

    I will do so!

  • @gnashattack  Feb 23

    Absolutely!

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 23

    I will have a crack at 6 from @gnashattack and @mandolinda hey @metalfoot alex we have done loads of each others so will leave that!

  • @theodamus  Feb 23

    I am still catching up on my reciprocating comments coz I've been focusing on zongs when I have spare moments, BUT I intend to continue my commenting mission through March so if you wanna #titfortat me BRING IT ON!

  • @sailingmagpie  Feb 23

  • @stephenwordsmith  Feb 23

    Edit: Having re-read the instructions, I don't think this approach works for me. I am *not* in, but you lot have fun.

  • @tunecat  Feb 23

    Sounds good..

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 23

    i am a hopeless tagger i always forget! but i did listen to 6 by @wolfkier and he reciprocated and did 6 of @gnashattack and @mandolinda and @sailingmagpie - only listen i you can I enjoyed my listens anyway.
    I didnt do @metalfoot or @tunecat as we had Listened to lots of each others songs already!

  • @wolfkier Feb 24

    I've created a list on the top post of participants. 9 so far. I've listened to at least one of everyone's so far, in some cases I've traded all 6 I had to trade. I heard songs I surely would not have enountered otherwise.Great stuff. Thanks to all and more welcome.
    I've also eidted and tried to be clearer with the idea in the top post. (sorry, got a little wordy, and propably confusing, the first time)

    * @coolparadiso just to be clear *6* was the number I used in the opening post as my own example. I only have 6 songs this FAWM to trade, (as we did between ourselves happily yesterday) you could do 1 trade or up to as many as you have and mutually agree to with the trading partner one at a time.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 24

    Yup i got it! 6 just seemed a good number to get a feel for someones music! And most people have six! So i stuck with it! If people cant make six back i already said thats ok!

  • @mandolinda  Feb 24

    Yup! I got it too! 6 at @wolfkier , and still listening to @coolparadiso and @bradbrubaker . As I listen, I am Googleing some technical methods and theory terms that you describe in your liner notes (so I can understand how you make your music). I have started a to-do list for the upcoming year.

  • @wolfkier Feb 25

    @coolparadiso I'm sure many are grateful for your generous spirit with listening commening. Little wonder you are at over 800 (!) with the Century club. Thank you again for participating.
    @mandolinda Thank you also for your participation and excitement. Discovering your magical songs was one of the great pleasures of #tit4tat for me!
    More participants in this reciprocal listening group are always welcome!

  • @wolfkier Feb 28

    BUMP: Anyone else want to join in?
    I've heard so much great stuff from this group so far.
    We're rolling into March. get on board!

  • @bradbrubaker  Mar 1

    Let the March listening begin!

  • @scottlake Mar 1

    I think you can add me to the list but I’m not sure on the instructions. A little thick today.

  • @mikeskliar  Mar 1

    how does it work exactly? I have like 33 songs up, I don't expect anyone to listen to them all! (tho the ones marked with a 'heart'.. would love more comments on those, i guess!....

  • @wylddandelyon Mar 1

    I can do that. I have bills to pay and tax paperwork to tackle, so I might be a little slow, but I'll get there.

  • @wolfkier Mar 1

    @mikeskliar & @scottlake everyone in the list above has agreed to return a listen/comment. or to begin the trading.
    choose one or more from the list above, visit them, listen/comment and leave #tit4tat tag, by being on the list they've agreed they'll visit you back. Now that you'll both be on the list someone may choose you. It can happen once tit for tat, or continue tit for tat until you or your partner/s run out of songs/time stamina.
    If you leave the tag with a participant, expect a visit back, and continue as long as you want/can have songs to trade. If you see a tag, return the visit and continue trading at will.
    For example, in my case I only have 7 songs to trade.
    I'll add you both to the list.

    @wylddandelyon Great thanks! Enjoy! I'll add you to the list as well.

  • @kenmattsson  Mar 1

    I'm up for feedback. Still a newbie, but happy to collab on giving feedback.

  • @wolfkier Mar 1

    Great @kenmattsson I'll add you to the list as well. Some fine music to hear and some generous commenters to trade with. Enjoy!

  • @kenmattsson  Mar 1

    Þakka þér kærlega fyrir @wolfkier. Ég hlakka til að skoða nýja tónlist. Ég hef áður sungið á íslensku (og er vinur Margrétar Eir), en ég geri ráð fyrir að þú hafir öll skrif þín á ensku. Íslenska er frábært tungumál til að syngja á. Þetta er eins og að tyggja orð.

    Hope Google translate did a good enough job on that!

  • @wolfkier Mar 1

    @kenmattsson nom nom lol 😀

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 1

    thx for your comments @wolfkier i think ive done everyone here i can, a couple of people here i have already done loads of so am leaving them!1 Oh and by the way im not on 900 comments i am nearing 1100 the club is not been update for a few days

  • @wolfkier Mar 1

    @coolparadiso thanks for your participation, if I read you right, I'll take you off the list.
    nearing 1100!!!! omg. You da beast! 😀

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 1

    I'm in if new people appear but i have done most here and the couple i have not I've listened to most of their songs already! i might owe Brad a few
    PS I am zonging as we speak! and still finding good stuff! but a fair few zongs have nothing on them so its pretty hard to do them all

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    See list of participants updated in top thread and maybe daily, so everyone gets a notification to get word out. Let the feedback flow!

  • @kathym  Mar 2

    I will be glad to participate. I already keep a scoresheet of every song I've listened to and already try to reciprocate for all who stop by my songs.

  • @vivalarayna Mar 2

    I... think I'm doing this already? I always try to do reciprocal comments, but I'm happy to add my name to the list. Takk fyrir, @wolfkier!

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    @vivalarayna indeed, many people do this, I do to, repay every listen with a listen, but this 1) formalizes the process and 2) creates a pool of people you may not have encountered otherwise, who've promised to reciprocate. And there are some beauties here. I guarantee! My cheeks hurt from smiling so much just tonight! I hope you enjoy your reciprocal visiting here. I'll come pay you a visit within the next hour to get your ball rolling with me!

  • @nahlej381  Mar 2

    Oh nice! Cool thread! I’ll be around for a while listening and would love to trade thoughts and hear some cool tunes!

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    @nahlej381 Sure, welcome!!!! I'll add you to the list! So much talent here. Guaranteed and all on the list have been true to their word with reciprication I can vouch!

  • @nahlej381  Mar 2

    @wolfkier thank you very much! Looking forward to it!

  • @carleybaer  Mar 2

    I wanna #tit4tat tooooooo

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    @carleybaer I got ya. Added to list. There's some beauties in this bunch!!! I've been enjoying so much. Have at it!

  • @infilktion Mar 2

    Add me to the list please!

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    @infilktion welcome aboard!

  • @sheilerk  Mar 2

    I'm in. It will be a pleasure, since I have wanted to visit so many on the list already, but didn't have the time in the week I've been onsite. I only have three that can be listened to on my list right now. The rest are lyrics only. Hoping to get a demo up that adds my voice and words to Nadia's beautiful music, but that's not up yet, though the lyrics are done. I always try to listen to at least one song from anyone who comments on one of mine anyway, and I need to got through and make sure I've done that before I start here, but this, along with the zong list, will make it easy to get some great listening in!

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    @sheilerk I agree. I'll add you to the top and updated lists! You'll love what you hear, I have so far, in spades! Enjoy!

  • @sapient  Mar 2

    The rules confuse me, but the idea of focused listening in March is one that I like very much. So count me in!

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 2

    @sapient bit like our old album listen challenge . Choose a person on the list just agree or just listen to a number of their songs and comment, most of us are choosing 6! Listen to six of that person and tag them tit for tat then they will listen to 6 of yours!

  • @emkaydeebee  Mar 2

    Whilst I always try and reciprocate listens if I can, at the same time I’m really averse to the pressure of having to listen to a set number. I’m going to be sticking around a while and listening some more, and keeping an eye on the - who’s still here - thread so I know the comments will be seen and appreciated, but such a formal “you must do this” will be the quickest thing to make me want to leave it this year. I know that’s fine and each to their own, I’m just hoping that those of us who just want to continue commenting as we find them, don’t get missed because we haven’t signed up to this formal setup. It can also leave one feeling that someone only commented because they are looking to get one back. I’d rather feel someone commented because they were moved to do so.

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    several new people:

    See LIST OF PARTICIPANTS (25 so far) at the very top of this thread.

    Let the comments flow.

    Also: to clarify, if you'd only like to do a certain number of exchanges, any number is good, just let the trading partner know in your first tit4tat initiating visit or reciprocal response. for example at the end of your song comment write :"#tit4tat1 - I'm good to go to x songs. What about you?" .

  • @wacha  Mar 2

    I'm in, I was planning on listening well into March. I'll stay and comment as long as there are other folks here to listen and see the comments.

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    @wacha I'll add you to top and latest list, welcome aboard .Happy #tit4tat ing!

  • @kenmattsson  Mar 2

    If anyone is going to come by and check out my songs, the one that I'd really like some feedback on is https://fawm.org/songs/124668/, which was a collab with @kahlo2013. It was my last song, and not too many people heard it. I think it's one of my strongest songs, so if anyone could give a listen I'd appreciate it.

  • @ferry0123 Mar 2

    I'm in for reciprical listen/comments too. You can count me in, Wolf!

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    @ferry0123 added you to the lists, my friend. Oh boy, are you in for some treats in this group. My head's spinning from the great stuff I've heard so far, and folks here will like what they hear from you too! 😀

  • @richaaaay  Mar 2

    I'm game for some tit4tat...

  • @wolfkier Mar 2

    @richaaaay Welcome aboard. I've added you to the top post and the latest update post. Some great stuff here, thanks for bringing more yummy to the party! Enjoy! 😀

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 3

    Count me in 😁

  • @metalfoot  Mar 3

    I will be getting back at this, have been concentrating on the zongs at the moment!

  • @wolfkier Mar 3

    Thanks and welcome @dzdandcunfsd . And still more magic enters the #tit4tat fray! I know you'll enjoy what you'll find here.
    I added you to the top list and I'll post an updated new list in the coming hours so all participants have it on their timelines handy!
    hope everyone's enjoying so far, I know I am, almost 100 comments/listens in just 3 days. And wow, the music! 😀

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 3

    @wolfkier I know I was already blown away at the quality of stuff this year in the first week or so, but after digging around more I just keep continually being surprised, you'd think I'd be over it by now 🤣

  • @nahlej381  Mar 3

    Ya this thread is great so far. I heard so many cool songs from everyone here. Great players great writers great singers and producers we have an interesting mix going here and I want to work with pretty much all of y’all so I will bug you incessantly!!!!! I kid. But bleach my blonde, I love FAWM.

  • @davidtaro  Mar 4

    Sign me up please @wolfkier ! Been looking for a way to keep the listening & interactions going, and this seems perfect. Cheers 😀

  • @wolfkier Mar 4

    @davidtaro More magic just entered the fray! Thank you for participating.

  • @lizbrinker  Mar 4

    Am I too late to the party? @wolfkier

  • @kenmattsson  Mar 4

    I can tell you all, you want to check @lizbrinker's songs. They are wonderful. I've already commented on most of them throughout the month.

  • @wolfkier Mar 4

    @lizbrinker Indeed you are not, I'll add you to the list at top, and publish another updated list a little later so everyone has a list handy on their soundboard. @kenmattsson Indeed,more magic just entered the fray!
    Now we are 26!
    If anyone can think of someone they know who'd benefit from listens/listening please invite them b4 they leave FAWM.

  • @tckane Mar 4

    I would like to participate too!

  • @wolfkier Mar 4

    Welcome to the #tit4tat @tckane. I know you'll find a world of wonder here. Now we are 27!

  • @sapient  Mar 4

    @wolfkier - thanks so much for kicking this off.
    I'm having so much fun.
    And once again, as happens every year, I am truly staggered by the talents on show here.
    We are aces!
    Yay us!
    😁

  • @wolfkier Mar 4

    Thank you , @sapient
    Indeed! So much amazing talent, generosity and goodwill in this group! Constantly amazed by people I might not have come across out of 2600+ FAWMers this year.
    Note some newcomers too who might need an initiating #tit4tat visit and consider who else you might invite to join in. 😀

  • @nuno  Mar 4

    I'd like to give this a go too. This is such a wonderful group of talented people. 😁

  • @wolfkier Mar 4

    @nuno indeed they are, you're in for quite a treat here! Welcome to the #tit4tat universe! I'll add you to the list at top.

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    .

  • @metalfoot  Mar 5

    I think I'll duck out of the 'official' tit4tat tagging part of this. I love listening to the works of other FAWMers and I will make a point of visiting everyone on this list at least once more. But I don't want to do the tagging part, if that's OK.

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    @metalfoot That's cool. So you want me to take you off the list/s, or you want to tell each participant you visit, you're only good for one more?

  • @metalfoot  Mar 5

    I don't know how many I'm good for, to be honest, and I don't want to chain myself to any expectations (I'm edging onto 1100 comments as it is). So yeah, feel free to take me off the list, @wolfkier -- but as I said, I will visit everyone on here.

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    @metalfoot Done. Visiting everybody is very generous of you. Thanks. Your comments always quality, you give so much to this community! 😀

  • @eargoggle  Mar 5

    Cool idea, sort of doing it anyway but at least this is a list of people who are still here who I can check out!

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    @eargoggle Great! Welcome aboard. I'll add you to top and latest lists. I know youll enjoy and it's great to have more magic to listen too!

  • @nahlej381  Mar 5

    Loving everyone’s music so far. I’m trying to listen one artist at a time and listen to all of the tracks they did. Except @dzdandcunfsd im sprinkling him in between artist since he’s got so many but I’ll finish his too! Lol please don’t feel obligated to listen to all my stuff tho. Just as much as you can handle. This is really helping pass the time and I’m finding folks I really wanna work with here. Thanks y’all. You’re great!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 5

    @nahlej381 sorry, not sorry, but yeah no need to listen to all of my random drivel either 🤣 check out @metalfoot's page makes me look like a slacker. I'm actually kind of glad the site goes down again this year, I thought it still did until last year. Gives me motivation to actually get around to listening to stuff I've been meaning to.

  • @nadine Mar 5

    I do not really get the idea of #tit4tat but I'm still commenting and looking on everyone's profile who commented me. So it's like choosing a person from this list and giving the promise to comment as much as she*he commented on your songs? Can't say anything about avant-garde and experimental music but I try my best to find at least one song where I can say something about it. Count me in after some explanation.

  • @mandolinda  Mar 5

    PS> I wish I could add to My Last FAWM Song
    I would add #tit4tat
    A most delicious addendum
    And Not A Squirmish at all.

  • @radiobenedetto  Mar 5

    Not sure I’m totally grokking this but I think the advantages are:
    A) the sign up avoids spamming people with expectations they don’t want

    B) by putting your upper limit in your comment after the tag, you can limit your commitment.

    C) reciprocity makes the world go round

    If I have that right, then sign me up.

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    @radiobenedetto that's right, you visit someone from list, listen/comment add #tit4tat1 (bc it's your first visit) and then add "I have (whatever) # of listens I'm happy to trade with you, cool?". They #tit4tat1 back and say ok let's do that many, or they say, I'd prefer only to do x". Then you tit4tat2 them till you get to mutually agreed number.
    Example ,I have 7 songs, you have 15. If we're both happy to trade the most we could ever do is 7, if agreed. But if you or I only wanted to do 4, for whatever reason, then 4 it is.
    I suck at expaining stuff, let me know if you have any other qestions. Happy to help. I'll add you to the top list and the latest update list. Good luck. Have fun!

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    @nadine Yes-ish. You choose a person comment on their song, say I have time for x exchanges would you like that? They say cool, let's do x, or they might say I only have time for y. and then you go all the way to y. Some people do it in a frenzy, and let the other catch up. Some people do one when they see one.
    Someone might visit you to start, you go visit them and say thanks and I happily go 3,4,5, whatever.
    Some people will just trade one after another until one person says this is my last #tit4tat. No explanation is necessary.
    I'll add you to the list. One at the top and one that I updated so everyone has theirs handy on their timeline.
    Please feel free to ask if you have any other questions. You can leave the list at any time. 😀

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    How's everyone doing? Having fun yet?

    See list in top post for participants 35 right now.

    Let the comments flow! (at least till April 14, when the site closes).
    And beyond that with new friends you've made here at next year's FAWM and the 50/90 Summer Songhunt!

  • @katestantonsings Mar 5

    Hi Wolf! I'd like to join--thank you for the invite!! #tit4tat @syonip

    I'd love to have more subscribers on YouTube and SoundCloud. I'll sub back!!

  • @nadine Mar 5

    @wolfkier:
    Now I got that! Thanks for explaining and adding. Let's give it a try.

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    Welcome @katestantonsings ! Still more magic just entered the fray! I know you'll enjoy so much great music here, and I'm sure people will enjoy yours! Adding you to top and update list now. Now we are 31!

  • @radiobenedetto  Mar 5

    @wolfkier having just done my first tit4tat I can say that you learn a lot more by listening to several tracks by the same artist. I definitely picked up on elements of style and technique that I wouldn't have if I were just dropping in for a one and done comment.

  • @fuzzy  Mar 5

    Am I too late for the party?!?
    Put me on the guest list!!!

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    @radiobenedetto That's the way I like to do this too if possible, full immersion, and it's worked for some people, I've done it a few times, 7 for 7, at exactly the same time as another person and that's cool too, but I'm sure with some people 1 for 1 back and forth over time works too. Each pairing will be different. What we have to feel out is how many each partner wants to go for, then explain we like to go full immersion or one for one.

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    Not at all, @fuzzy. Welcome. I've just added you to the top list and the lower update list. Enjoy your trades, there are some amazing generous folks and songs here waiting to experience.

  • @wolfkier Mar 6

    Anyone else want to join in?
    This weekend maybe the last hurrah for people, outside this group and not active in the forums, who are seeing their comments drying up. Don't let them leave thinking FAWM is over, it's not!
    Please consider inviting a FAWM friend who might enjoy extra visits given and recieved. So much goodwill and happy exchanging going on here. I'm sure a lot FAWM friendships for years to come are being forged here!

  • @gnashattack  Mar 6

    I'm definitely listening to a song of everyone (hopefully) that's listened to one of mine, but I'm not sure if I have the tagging right. This is still fun, though!

  • @wolfkier Mar 6

    @gnashattack with each person you can, by agreement, listen to multiple songs, to keep tabs on the exchange use #tit4tat1 for the first exchange, #tit4tat2 for the second etc, up until your various partners' mutually agreed limit of exchanges. I hope that makes it clearer. Let me know, tag me here or via my profile / soundboard if you have any questions.

  • @driftwood1  Mar 6

    @wolfkier thanks for the invite and thanks for trying to keep the fawm excitement going. I'll join the fun.

  • @wolfkier Mar 6

    @driftwood1 I'll add you to the list at the top of the page and the updated one, so expect both in your timeline as well as this reply. Have fun. I've already traded one with you and enjoyed my listen very much and will go all of my 7 with you if you want. I'm sure others here will too! Welcome. More great talent has just entered the fray! Yay! 😀

  • @seppo Mar 6

    I'm still bit confused how this works but count me in and I'll figure it out 😄

  • @wolfkier Mar 6

    @seppo Welcome to the fray, I'll add you to the top and update list (so you'll see this post and then 2 longer ones in your timeline with the updated names including yours) and get you started. It's fun and easy. Happy to have you. More talent has entered the fray.
    Then there were 34. Let's make the new folks welcome.

  • @seppo Mar 6

    Thanks @wolfkier
    I think I kind of figured this out and I'm up for this 😄

  • @shelleroo1  Mar 7

    I'm in! Please add me. 😀

  • @wolfkier Mar 7

    @shelleroo1 gotcha! added to both lists. Glad to have more magic onboard, I know you'll enjoy what we have gathered here.

    Everybody, As Sunday comes and goes a great deal of people will have left FAWM for the year, so please if you think of anyone else that could do with more listens and might like to join, please reach out to them. So much goodwill here to go around as the site starts to wind down!
    Let's keep the comments flowing as long as we can.

    Then we were 35 strong!

  • @gnashattack  Mar 7

    @wolfkier Woops I was numbering according to total #tit4tats. My bad. I get it now, thank you!

  • @wolfkier Mar 7

    see list of players above. Let the comments flow!

  • @wolfkier Mar 8

    BUMP: Anybody else want to join our group of 34 happy #tit4tat reciprocators before the site empties out?

  • @carleybaer  Mar 9

    Hey lovely #tit4tat crew (namely @davidtaro @nuno @richaaaay @wolfkier and whoever else might tap me in the meanwhile) it's the week before finals so I'm swamped catching up on school work and studying for exams. I plan to make the most of our time until the April deadline, especially once glorious spring break arrives, so I'll be commenting in earnest in the next couple weeks. Just a heads up so y'all know I didn't forget 😀

  • @codeenergy 8 weeks

    I was told about this by @nahlej381 and it sounds like a good place to find constructive criticism. I am willing to exchange listens if it means opening opportunities for progress. That's kinda like my jam haha.

  • @kenmattsson  8 weeks

    Just FYI, I've been going through a bit of a post-FAWM need to take a break from commenting and listening, but I'll be back, so don't be bummed if I don't get back to you right away. I will!

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    @codeenergy Welcome. I've added you to top and latest update list. I hope you have fun. Choose a few names and send out an originating first tit4tat offer of how many songs you'd like to trade with each person, and expect a few pokes yourself! Let the feedback flow.

    @kenmattsson enjoy your break! indeed this #tit4tat is super fun but sometimes we all need a little rest.

  • @seppo 8 weeks

    Huh, finally got a little time to catch up my duties 😀
    Daaamn, people here got a great stuff, must say.
    My foreign language vocabulary is a bit limited, so it makes a deeper analysing, or actually explaining, quite hard.
    Sorry about that.

  • @nadine 8 weeks

    @wolfkier Thank you so much for your initiative. It is fun listening to profiles you probably would have never found and made new friends. I like the constructive criticism that developed here. I'm here until my stems arrive.

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    Thank you, @nadine . Indeed I've learned so much and made some great new friends in this year's #tit4tat as well. I've heard of some other blossoming (and potentially creative) friendships between members of the group. So much great music, so much generosity of time and kindness.
    I hope I remember to do it again in the last 2-3 weeks of 50/90. I'll put a note in my diary, but people who enjoyed this one might also make a note and remind me in September. The thing about diary notes is that I sometimes forget to look at my diary. 😀

  • @nahlej381  8 weeks

    @wolfkier lovin tit4tat man thanks for listening and putting this page together heard so much big talent on here! Welcome to my long time best friend @codeenergy

  • @timfatchen  8 weeks

    I thought I should look in while I've got a little space, and many names on the list aren't familiar.

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    @timfatchen Welcome aboard! Choose as many people from the list above with a comment each and an offer of how many trades you're willing to do. Expect several proposals back. 😀
    I've updated the list with your name. Enjoy!

  • @apolez3 8 weeks

    I guess I'm in

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    @apolez3 cool, Welcome. I'll add you to the top list and the update. With a few more members these past few days I'll post an updated list to all sometime tomorrow.
    Choose a few people from the list, visit a song with an offer of how many song listen/comments you want to trade, and expect a few pokes over the next few days! Enjoy.
    Now we are 37!

  • @timfatchen  8 weeks

    okay, life happens here and I'm ahving to effectively shut down in teh next 24 hours. So anyone on this list I haven't heard, or who I "owe" a listen/comment, just send a #tit4tat to my soundboard and I'll scramble my best before the life ocean depths swallow me.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  8 weeks

    take care @timfatchen remember your water wings!

  • @gm7  8 weeks

    I will try it.

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    @gm7 Added! Welcome to the group. More talent has entered the fray and now we are 38. I've added you to top list. But later today I'll send out a weekend post with all names to all participants to get some momentum going over the weekend!
    Enjoy the absolute gems I know you'll find in the group! And I know they'll enjoy meeting/hearing you!
    Start by choosing a few off the list above, giving them an initial comment, and making an offer of how many you can trade with each individual. Rememeber to mark each listen #tit4tat1, tit4tat2, etc. Enjoy!

  • @pipewrench67  8 weeks

    I don't think I can commit to this 100% but when looking for things to listen to, I will consult the list above/

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    Hi all, having fun yet?
    * We've several new players in recent days. Below is Latest list of participants. Let's make the new comers welcome!
    * It'd be great, and keep the momentum going through the weekend and into next week, if everyone chose 2 people they haven't exchanged yet with and sent out an first comment and an #tit4tat tade offer.
    * still time to invite some friends who deserve more feedback and will love what they hear before they leave the site, thinking it's finsihed and dead. It's not at all, is it??
    * see math quiz question after list. No prize, sorry, but I'm too stupid to work it out.

    Thanks also to @pipewrench67 who mentioned on the forum thread, he'd be visiting names from the group for one for one #tit4tats. No commitment.

    MATH QUESTION:
    I suck at math and can't work out how to do this. If each of the 38 #tit4tat participants exchanges just 5 listens/comments with all other participants. How many listens/comments has #tit4tat generated? Is it a wow number?
    What if everyone went 6 for 6? Is it an even wowwer number?

    **** THANKS so much to ALL of you, this really has been a blast and a perfect FAWM after party. I'm hearing great music, getting valuable feedback, and seeing all kinds of friendships forming all over the site! I'm sure all of you are as well.

  • @gm7  8 weeks

    Just for 2 comments each

    N(N-1)/2
    38(38-1)/2
    38 * 37/2
    19 * 37
    704

    If i am wrong then the answer is " a freaking large amount"🤣😜

    Math teachers come to my rescue

  • @dzdandcunfsd  8 weeks

    My best guess at your math quiz answer is it being a non-negative integer greater than zero. 🤣

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    @gm7 that working formula thing you posted looks like a foreign language to me. Or maybe the lyrics to a @dzdandcunfsd song 😀 ....Try it using 5 and 6.
    oh, woops, speak of the devil, hi, @dzdandcunfsd, so a wow number or a wowwer number!?!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  8 weeks

    @wolfkier 🤣 The wowiest of numbers!

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    @dzdandcunfsd I'm sure with a little extra #tit4tat love we can do even better than wowiest! Not being pedantic but do you think that's spelled wowiest or wowwiest? Maybe an Englisher amongst us could put us straight on that too. LOL

  • @dzdandcunfsd  8 weeks

    @wolfkier Yeah spelling and grammarizing is not a strong suit of mine either 🤣. I'll still be slowly making it through peoples stuff again. I still get a few a day, but my ears are finally getting rested up.

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    @dzdandcunfsd You're doing a great job, eveyone is, and each at their own rate. Thanks! We've got more than half of the top 20 commenters on this years FAWM Century Club list playing, and there's been plenty of Century Club rung climbing amongst us, so there's plenty of goodwill going around! 😀
    Still don't have an answer to our math quiz for 5 and 6 visits each yet though. Maybe tomorrow morning a mathematicianalistical person will find the member update post in their time line and bring us some answers.

  • @driftwood1  8 weeks

    Re: 38 users swapping 5 comments with all the others.
    Each user is generating(giving/receiving) 185 comments.
    5 comments × 37 other users = 185.
    38 users generating 185 comments each, 38 x 185 = 7,030 total comments.
    If you increase to 6 comments you get:
    6 x 37 = 222 comments per user.
    222 x 38 = 8,436 total comments.

  • @wolfkier 8 weeks

    @driftwood1 Thanks for the answers. I'd say those numbers are pretty wow!
    So, if each comment recived generates a smile and each song enjoyed to create that comment generates a smile,
    if we trade 5 songs each, that's 14,060 smiles
    if we trade 6 songs each, that's 16,872 smiles.
    Am I right? if that's true ... 😀

    I hope everyone approaches 2 unheard participants this weekend.

  • @wolfkier 7 weeks

    Bump: Any body else want to join in?

  • @edwardsmusic 7 weeks

    Not too sure, but here's my two cents. I almost always return the favour if someone comments one my songs. This sounds good.

  • @wolfkier 7 weeks

    @edwardsmusic Welcome aboard!
    Please choose a few names from the list and leave them a comment an initiating #tit4tat and offer of how much you'd like to trade with them. And expect some back soon, I'll come and offer you 7 for my 7 in the next 24hours too!
    I've added you to top and latest update list. Now we are 39!
    Enjoy!

  • @highmountain 7 weeks

    A most laudable initiative this, which I for a number of reasons (deficiencies) can't join. Anyone caring for a tit-without-tat is most welcome to ride by my hideout. (And of course the rest too. But these folks will be let down!)
