Re: Newbie question about the site.
One unique thing you'll notice about this site, hippydog - we're not about ratings, we're not about reviews - we're about the music. There are no competitions that involve numbers of plays, numbers of reviews or comments. We intentionally discourage feeling obligated to review someone's song, just because they reviewed yours.
We've cultivated a community of artists and listeners who just want to hear good music; no matter what style or genre it is. IMW is here for people to display and promote their music, without the expectation or reciprocation of comment. We're here to support each other, to collaborate, and to hear and discuss all aspects of music.
Hope that helps clarify your questions. We're actually glad you brought this up.
