this site has the best caps

PSA

DISCLAIMER: THE FOLLOWING POST CONTAINS A VIDEO DESCRIPTION. THE VIDEO ITSELF IS EXTREMELY TRIGGERING, ANXIETY INDUCING, AND PANIC ATTACK INDUCING. IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED THAT YOU WATCH IT FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY.

Sam Pepper has recently uploaded a video where he is with 2 viners, and one of them is “in” on it. Long story short, he illegally kidnaps the one who has no clue as to what’s going on, and he witnesses Sam pretend to murder his friend (the one who is in on it).

The entire video is very hard to watch. The “innocent” guy is screaming, kicking, and bawling his eyes out (all whilst being tied up i might add).

I WAS IN TEARS (idk why its in all caps but still its important). I DON’T USUALLY GET PANIC ATTACKS OVER THIS KIND OF STUFF BUT FROM THAT GUYS PERSPECTIVE, HE JUST WITNESSED THE MURDER OF HIS BEST FRIEND.

SAM PEPPER HAS NO PLACE ON ANY INTERNET SITE. PLEASE REBLOG THIS ONLY TO INFORM OTHERS JUST SO BOTH YOU AND THEM CAN STAY SAFE.

PLEASE

They sent out an email, posted to their blog, and were on twitter about this at the end of October. That was proceeded by months of a crowdsourcing campaign to try and keep the site going by donation. 

And now suddenly everyone’s noticing that they’re introducing a listening limit and encouraging people to subscribe?

Do you really use 8Tracks that much if you just now noticed this? 

Honestly I was pissed, but that was a month ago. I realized how much I use this site for my job and decided it was something I could afford, especially at the reduced price. I’m just kicking myself for not donating to their crowdsourcing campaign, everyone who did that gets a free subscription for life. 

I looked around, every other music streaming site has limits, usually accompanied by intrusive ads, and also strongly encourages you to subscribe. No streaming site actually turns a profit, licensing fees being what they are. I knew, deep down, that 8Tracks’ model wasn’t going to last, eventually they’d have to start charging or be swallowed up by a bigger company. 

When I was angry and upset last month, I reached out to the staff and emailed them some suggestions, and they got back to me right away. If you like this site, or liked this site, email the staff! Tell them what kind of listening cap would work best for you, what would entice you to sign up. At the very least you can try. Remember these aren’t evil monsters cackling and trying to ruin your life, they’re people trying to save their jobs. They’ll listen to suggestions, might not implement them, but they’ll listen.
