Is it just me, or do things seem really quiet around here this year?
Commenting is the lifeblood of Fifty/Ninety - for a lot of participants, getting comments is what fuels their engines. Every year this thread crops up to encourage people to listen (or read the lyrics) and comment on songs uploaded by other participants. If you have a spare fifteen minutes, why not click on the site's "Jukebox" link and give something new a listen?
It's also beneficial to the commenter. I've discovered some talented musicians and made some great friendships this way. Setting yourself comment targets is a great way to listen to more music; your favourite new artist might be out there, right now, waiting for you to hear what they've just written.
I can see some folks are already way ahead of me in their commenting duties - so who's got to a hundred comments? (Go to http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/ while you're logged in and your "song comments" count is there in the top right hand corner).
