Soundcloud took down my account. (And other announcements)

Posted by Curruff - March 29th, 2020

I've been using Soundcloud for almost a year now. However, when I went to log on today to publish a new song, I found that my account had vanished from the site. Searching my name resulted with nothing, and links that used to lead to my account now lead to an error page. Keep that in mind when trying to access my Soundcloud via a link.

I never got any emails from Soundcloud about anything. There wasn't a password reset request, or even an email saying that my account was deleted. I don't think it was a hacker. Even if they had deleted the emails, it's very unlikely they would just delete the account. They would most likely take it over instead. I'm pretty sure this was something Soundcloud has done themselves. However, I can't think of a reason why this might be.

I've contacted Soundcloud about this, and by now I'm just waiting for a reply.

I've also just released a new song! It's called "Heist" and you can listen to it here: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/921871

Just ignore the Soundcloud link, though...

Also, I've updated my social medias to include my Youtube and Twitch. That's right, I have a Twitch channel. I occasionally stream myself making music now. Here's some links to these, if you're interested.

I've also updated these on my social links on my profile, along with my Spotify account.

That's all from me. Be sure to wash your hands.

I believe that's called a shadowban. Fucked up, though, especially if you were uploading completely original content.
If they're gonna be like that, then it's only a matter of time before they do that to mine. Honestly, I don't care if they do, though. I only use it as a dump for stuff I wouldn't be allowed to upload here.

Are you sure? Because it's not letting me sign in or anything. I'm not entirely sure if a shadowban would cause that, though.

I dunno what else you would call it. Your account was deleted without any kind of notification. Sounds sneaky to me.
Or perhaps a system glitch, though I doubt that.

I guess I'll just have to wait for their reply to find out what happened.
