I’ll start: Almighty Tom! Moderators at least (editors as well? it’s up to you) should be able to edit auto-blog posts.

i’m thinking music video’s for the lyrics.. i don’t like going to youtube to watch the video when it could be right there next to the lyrics.

I think it should be more clear on how to indicate sounds that are not actually rapping in the lyrics, or how to indicate that something is a sample — maybe a more in-depth format system. And is there a way to search for the video explanations?

Remove the “Hot songs” list below.Just because alot of people listen to them doesn’t make them how.

@oxner362 What exactly do you mean? Can you elaborate a little?

@griffinmahon The format system is all done by the editors. We can put anything into the lyrics of a song, so thanks for the suggestion! If it calls for it, I’m sure we can incorporate something of that sort.

@SlimNatey I check my email :P

@Void I’m pretty sure the definition of “hot” is that the most people listen to the songs. The Hot Songs list is ordered based on the number of pageviews and likes, so I think it’s a pretty useful thing to have on the site.

I think there should be a way to make certain lyrics “unexplainable” in instances where lyrics are self-explanatory and are explained and re-explained in a redundant way, for the sole purpose of bumping up their IQ.

“I’m going to the club” really doesn’t need to be explained unless there is some additional significance added onto the line by context.

LOCK lyrics, like wiki. Like for example some people keep on suggesting stuff to lyrics that are already explained. Ofcourse they could still comment below or email an editor or post here, just make it so that they can’t suggest on lines.

I also had some other suggestions that I emailed to Maboo a long time ago, I’ll dig ‘em up and post 'em.

I would like to second the “Lock in those lyrics!” suggestion.

In a song where we add the youtube link, there should be a “save” button or something. It takes forever to update the youtube link and plenty of times I have to reload the page and redo it.

Another thing, is there a link to the forum on the homepage?
