    Completely. This is meant as friendly advice.
    That is why people have bothered to reply and have bothered to explain why rather than just say "no".
    But then again, ignore the advice at your own risk...
    If he persists, I do not encourage anyone to be rude but simply to ignore or even report as SPAM.

    @KoopaTroopa63
    If the conversation was about replicating some of the sounds found in Mario or other games, you might find some interest here.
    Otherwise, most of the active users are way past the age of having an interest in Mario games.

    Please take the message and stop.

    My vote: no.

    Koopa, you have been told before that many of your posts have been reported as spam. You have apologised for this, something which I myself praised you for, and promised not to post spam again. But you have continued.

    You know why it hurts me to say this? When I was younger I made a lot of ‘fan art’ of this kind. And I am still a huge Mario fan. But even then I would not have misused a website irrelevant to the topic to post my work (if I had had use of the Internet back then). One day in the near future, you will look back on the way you have used this website thus far and think: man, that was silly.

    I get the impression you might be lonely and in need of companionship. I know the feeling. If that’s the case, try http://themushroomkingdom.net/chatroom/. I used to hang out there quite a lot.

    Please think carefully about what has been said here, or Freesounders may well start to dispense with politeness and risk hurting your feelings.

    @KoopaTroopa63

    This website and forums are dedicated to sound: recordings, processing, sound design, even music...

    The Off Topic forum is there for everything else...
    However consider this: if you only post in the "off-topic" forum, is this really the website for you?

    Don't mean to be rude, but looks like the general freesound community does not share your interests. You might get better response from a forum/website that is actually focused/dedicated to the stuff you like.
    There are a few such forums where users post storylines, that seems to be more your thing. I believe you will find that more rewarding and you will feel more welcome there.

    I agree with others that have posted here: if you like writing you should definitely pursue it. But finding the right place for it is important and will make the experience more enjoyable for you.
    Doing it in the wrong place likely has the opposite effect and can get you demotivated. Might actually put you off from writting, which could be a shame.

    Good luck

    Yes, I vote for a no. No, I mean I do not vote for a yes. I mean yes, you are right, I can answer no. Or no, I think you understand what I mean when I say yes. Which is actually a no. So no, maybe you don't know what I'm talking about. But yes, surely, you have my answer by now.

    Look, mate. You should really start a blog and try to publicize that blog. I have no idea why you keep on posting your stories here. Frankly speaking I doubt many people read it, and not because they don't like it, but because they probably do not think this is the place they want to come to to read stories.

    If you're really passionate about writing, pursue it. But find the right outlet for it. Freesound is not the place where you want to do it.

    I'm hypothesizing that the reason they did so without a warning or explanation is because someone reported it as spam; they likely didn't do so of their own volition.

    Here's a short new bit made with a couple of freesounds. Thanks, and thanks again.

    BBC Radio 3 programme available online.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b052zn08


    Early in 2013 record producer Dan Carey bought a vintage tape machine at a charity shop in Streatham, South London. The Ferrograph recorder came with a box of 7-inch tapes containing an audio documentation of the previous owner's social life as a young man in the 1950s at a time when reel to reel tape recorders were state of the art audio technology. Among the recordings was a poetry reading event featuring an unusual selection of texts, from obscure comic verse to sections from the King James Bible and a Ministry of Transport pedestrian advice leaflet. Alan Dein goes in search of the recordist Barrie Simpson and surviving members of his circle, in this evocative and poignant story of suburban life and the Baptist church in South London over half a century ago.

    This is as much social history as about the technicalities of recording. Interesting that reel-to-reel was being used by amateurs as early as the 1950s.

    If you don't listen to the radio prog, the gallery here is worth a look:

    First Chapter of my game is now complete and can be downloaded here:
    http://www.sandgreen.dk/everglow.html
    The game is open-source and developed on Linux, but it should be playable on Mac and Win.

    I have used the folowing samples from freesound:

    Thanks to everyone who have contributed, and a special thanks to shadowWisp for the player dialog.

    I'm sure there's still are a couple of bugs left, and I'll be more than happy to recieve bugreports, and try to fix them along the way.

    It might not be very nice. However, while I can’t speak for the staff, I would guess they probably feel that Freesound is a website for sharing sounds, not starting blogs. There are no shortage of services which exist for the specific purpose of hosting blog-type websites, for instance:

    http://www.tumblr.com
    http://www.blogger.com
    http://www.wordpress.com

    I really would suggest that you check out one of these if you want to run a blog. The Freesound forums are no more an appropriate place for blogging than a busy public library is an appropriate place to start a barbecue.
