    Yeah. I want to upload a track, and I want it to get popular, but with all the tracks being uploaded very few people will get to see it because there will be at least 1 post ever 2 minutes that move it down the list. You need to put the upload cost back up to where it was. It would help us all out. Eric Char Please take this into consideration. I posted a picture yesterday that we were at the 600th page on the newest list. Well it has been a full day and we are now on the 612th page! That is way to many tracks.

    I would even put it up to 500 Eric, because then we would get detailed and fun tracks

    That's too high, people would leave the game. I just want it higher so there is less spam.

    Actually, I kinda agree. My tracks get NOTHING. NOTHING. No matter how hard I work on it barely anyone acknowledges it. Maybe raise it to 100 or 150. Don't go back to 250. That was way too expensive

    That's why you share it on the forums.

    There should be a reward system for getting likes on your tracks. There might already be, since I'm kind of new to FRHD (but I loved Canvas Rider), but if there's not, there should be. Also, maybe if someone hits a certain amount of dislikes, they could get coin deductions.

    I think that it should be a little higher then 50 but less then 250.. I think the sweet spot is 175 :thumbsup:

    On the plus side, love the highest rated update. That is cool :) In the top 30 highest rated tracks now. Feeling kind of cool :D

    No, that's not necessarily a good idea. Some people are trolls and dislike tracks for no reason. :thumbsdown:

    It's definitely a tough call. "spammy" tracks have seemed to settle down on Friday over the weekend. Reducing the cost has increased the tracks submitted by 2.5x, are more tracks being submitted yes but is it hurting the game I don't think there is a definitive answer around that.

    WheelieMaker is right, to stand out you need to share it with friends or on the forum. We have seen tracks gain momentum without that but it definitely helps.

    Even at 250 coins, more tracks being submitted will become a problem. With the reduce in cost we saw 2.5x more tracks submitted daily, what will happen when FRHD hits 2.5x more players, at 250 coins we will have the same problem.

    More tracks are being submitted but with the lower cost yes there have been some bad tracks submitted but there are also new authors coming forward:

    http://www.freeriderhd.com/t/57678-rocky-mountain-preview
    http://www.freeriderhd.com/t/57575-backyard-fun
    http://www.freeriderhd.com/t/57101-chill-hill-1
    http://www.freeriderhd.com/t/57360-musical-track-demo-easy


    What we are going to try to push out this week is the requirement for non-official authors to complete the track before they can submit, this should eliminate those impossible tracks that are being submitted.

    So, everyone in this thread, if you aren't already do your part rate up those tracks you think deserve it and rate down those that don't.

    And self promote your tracks here on the forum and outside to your friends.

    And after all of this, I am not saying we won't increase the cost we just have some more changes on our end to try while we have it at this low cost that we will be rolling out this week.

    There are way too many impossible tracks. Making the creator play the track is a great idea.

    In all honestly I don't mind the coin reduction, it can create new possibilities for new members. Yes, there will be spam tracks, but Canvas Rider, TrackMill, fr2.me and all of these websites dealt with them and ignored them (more the most part). The best way to get recognition on your tracks is to share them of the forums, get feedback, improve, and repeat until you're on the trending list. Not gonna lie, I was one of those kids that made spam tracks every day and didn't even put effort into my tracks. But now I'm on trending, and I inspire some members. We all deserve a chance.
