    What a bunch of s**t! Looks like SongPop had the new facebook page shut down. Never fear, I'll have a website up and running before the end of the day. SongPop people, you suck.

    False alarm. We're back up and running so please continue to add your names and playlists at https://www.facebook.com/groups/592387274121742/ and please spread the word

    Just curious, did anyone on this site get approached by quizmaster.biz to add their names?

    Wow Clipper, not sure where that's coming from. I added you to SongPop and sent you a challenge which got no reply.  The other stuff about my picture or my looks is not called for, and I don't know about any lunatic thing. All the best to you.

    Easy Clipper. Stop your freaking whining. I reject some challenges because their music interests and mine are totally different, not because of their nationality or point of origin. I created the facebook page to help other players, there's nothing in it for me. If you want people to challenge you, join the group and leave your info. I hate cry babies, grow the f**k up.

    Hey Clipper, I really think you need to chill a little! If a person doesn't want to play with you, then move on to the next. If you don't like a person's post, then don't read it. Really don't think you need to get personal with others that you know nothing about. Penny and Tom are both just trying to do something for the benefit of others. They really aren't there so you can abuse them, if you don't agree with what they're trying to acomplish then simply don't frequent the sites that they've set up. With your comment about age, I would be guessing that you must still be very young and it's probably time to grow up and show a bit of maturity, think about others and their feelings before you go spouting off! Penny and Tom; thanks for all the hard work in trying to make things a bit better for the rest of us. Your dedication is definitely not gone unnoticed!

    Yes the new Best Match Feature only having 3 matches per day unless you purchase powerups is most annoying and a little bit cheeky.

    However the random player feature WILL NOT not be returning and this was a decision made by fresh planet to make the app more lucrative, Well here's the good news in a forthcoming version of songpop the best match feature will not be restricted to 3 searches per day it will be unlimited but only for VIP users but hey its a step in the right direction.

    Anyway on with what i came on here to mention we are well aware of both Tom and Money Pennys attempts at trying to create some kind of online area where Songpop fans can publish their usernames in an attempt to create a global list of users that we can all challenge FREE OF CHARGE as a walkaround to the Best Match Feature.

    Well i am pleased to say i have now created such a database where users can simply enter their username and various other info ie Location and they will be added to our online Songpop user database instantly you can also view the entire database to list all the users we have available so far.

    That's it its totally FREE!!! NO BULLSHIT and can be found by following this link www.quizmasters.biz/songpop/menu.html

    We will be adding more and more features as time goes on (Duplicate user name checking and a search engine) so keep an eye on it

    Enjoy!!!

    why not let us PAY or use like 1,000 coins or something for a Random Playlist button - bring it back - by hook or by crook - it is what people want!  Give the people what they want!

    why must the same Facebook people who don't want to play or have not returned my play request sit at the top of "best matches" on my Ipad SongPop all freakin' day long - this makes absolutely no sense . . . please remove this feature - it is making me not want to play anymore.  When you delete a facebook friend from the list on SongPop - they come back up again in Best Match - why why why?  Yes, I like that person, and yes they are a friend, and yes, they might play SongPop 700x a day, but for some reason - they might not like to play me for songlist issues, competitive differences, or just might be playing their 3 best friends all day long . . . . whatever the case - when I delete them or block them from SongPop App - they should NEVER show up on my Best Match or any list moving forward - what a waste of finding good/quality opponents to play . . . please fix this.

    I had to turn off notifications for this thread/discussion because my inbox was filling up with new responses every day. I still cannot believe that since my post a month ago on this matter, Songpop have had nothing better to say on the topic except that their "metrics" showed them the new 'Best Match' feature was somehow generating more games. I would love to see those "metrics", as would most people involved in this discussion.

    IF THE 'BEST MATCH' "FEATURE" was truly an attempt to improve the enjoyment that we get from the game and NOT a cynical attempt to rake in more money... why don't Songpop simply make both features available? There was no problem with the old 'Random Player' feature, it was neither broken nor did it cause any problems as far as we know about with the game. The only reason Songpop would have for replacing it with 'Best Match' is to make more money by making players pay for more games.

    My VIP is up in 60 days and and I'll be deleting Songpop immediately after. I still love the game but personally, I have a moral issue with supporting a business model that is so opportunistic and greedy. Oh, and add dishonesty to that list. Spinning some bullshit about how the change is supported by their "metrics" is just insulting. That is the worst thing about such blatant dishonesty, it's a way of saying to your customers, "we think you're stupid and we're keeping 'Best Match' just to prove that you'll be stupid enough to keep playing".

    I hate best match. If it matched my playlists that would be fine but I don't want to only play people near my geographical location. No diversity and it sux!!!

    I hate to say it but I have found my solution. I have not played in a month now, which is too bad because I used to love this game. I refuse to buy broken match ups with power ups even though I have over a thousand of them. I am not however deleting the app because I want to keep coming up as a best match and not responding. This isn't very nice of me to do from a player perspective, but it will help keep the complaints coming on how this best match system is broken. You know things are on a downward spiral as soon as a company starts telling their players that they know better what is fun and better. Sorry to tell you songpop, you didn't do this to enhance the customer experience, it was a blatant move to try to cash in on your popularity. Unfortunately the only thing you will be doing is making room for another app who listens to their customers and does it better.

    The songpop online user database has now reached 110 users, not bad considering its only been active for less than 24 hours, lots of users have registered from all over the world including       England, USA, Australia, Netherlands, India to name a few so if you haven't added your username to the list yet what are you waiting for,  you can find it here www.quizmasters.biz/songpop/menu.html.

    Register today and increase your chances of receiving a challenge or simply challenge a user who is already on the list.

    Really, the best match is so limited. I enjoy playing with people all over the world. Have met some great people from the netherlands, austrailia, germany, etc.I really don't find it so interesting to play with people just from my state in the USA. They haven't even been that great of matches anyway.,

    LOL Mark austin, that is so bad but such a good idea, lol!! Maybe I will put songpop back on my phone and then not respond to best matches & get more people to complain lol. I uninstalled it because I wasn't interested in 1. playing everyone who talks and thinks exactly like me, 2. Songpop including me in their stats of people who "play", 3. rewarding song pop and them thinking everything is peachy when they are being stupid and ruining the game. It just got VERY boring to me plus when companies make it more of a chore and less fun .... why am I going to stick around and spend time on  something I don't like? but that is a good idea, lol. I also have not played in about a month or so.

    The funny thing is that I think their "metrics" that show people play more now is likely based not on games played but on times the app is launched. Whereas before you could easily get 80 games going and have a steady stream of games to play for hours at a time without a lull, now you play a couple of challenges and then you're done so you log out and check it again in a little while effectively making it look like you are playing more. I think that unfortunately the only feedback that they may be interested in is if everyone posts these negative comments and rating in the App Store influencing new customers.

    Just a shout out to both Tom and Terry for your support towards the remarks/insults that were posted on this forum against me. It was hurtful to say the least. Anyways I finally closed the petition and removed any posts on my blog for usernames as it became evident from an email that I received, that there is more hurtful intention. Why? Who knows. I also asked the admin of this forum to remove my posts so that person won't be able to track me. Sadly, I say goodbye for now.  I hope everything goes your way and you are all successful.

    I am very sorry and sad to see what was suppose to be a fun and challenging game turn so ugly and personal. All that was done was a few people taking the initiative to try to resolve an issue that the game developers created by trying to make the game more enjoyable for everyone. Instead it has turned into something full of hate and resentment by a few in the community. I do applaude you for your efforts Money Penny and Tom and wish you the best. For those of you who disagree with these efforts, I challenge you to come forward with some ideas as to what YOU would do to try to resolve the issues set out by the developers. You know how to complain, now learn how to be part of the solution and not the problem!!

    want an opponent every second?  Try typing in popular names, like John H., Mary B, beatlesfan1, songpop2, songpop3, sunnyday, lovethis, etc.

    I have done this about 50 times and landed 3 opponents - I actually landed an opponent from London (I am in NY) and they play me all the time - I get to see the London, GB "80's British Classics" list - which is very cool . . . 

    again - click on find a person, then in "username" type the most popular names, phrases, etc. into the username area and by trial and error, you will find people . . . crazy cool!

    Hey fellow Popper's.. still nothing from Songpop. If someone has the skills.. shut them down for a bit!! Make them listen. Our plea's seem to be falling on deaf ears.  Has anyone noticed the new stuffup that they have mananged to come up with? Now down the bottom of the home screen are all your friends with an " im playing" bubble next to them and a Challenge button. Its false BS .. I thought great i can play so and so and whats his face, i didnt know they played. But its just a ruse for you to send them a challenge and get them to play. The friends got the requests and havent ever played before. Thanks for making me look stupid songpop .. your the best.

    Hey I am back! SongPop said they received the offenders remarks and agree with me after I showed them his emails and they took down his comments so i am back! I went to quizmasters.biz but since I already got approached by them in my blog and on here that I would take a look at when they did.  I can see they are creating some kind of website but had some questions about how people will have to search and hope they can get their usernames easily. And then I thought, what the hell? isn't that what Tom have been posting on the net and forums and try to do??? So I guess they decided to take it  a bit further and it' TOTALLY FREE...I wander how long for?   So I thought I would send them a comment and when I tried to do that I got a full flush that an virus was implanted on their fill out your contact information page.  So I can send them any questions...which would be. Do you work for SongPop or/and what are you going to be paid and from whom do do this much work.

    I've just signed up in order to show my support. Was going to sign the petition - shame it had to end. I used to like playing song pop when bored, when none of my friends were playing, on journeys, during insomnia, the list could go on. Now I've hidden my location and stopped playing. I don't want to play against people in my town. Boredom may drive me to but then I get 3 players and if none of them are active, I don't get to play at all. What a weird move by the developers.... To limit people's games to 3 at a time and to stop people playing all day and all night if they so wished. There must be more to it. They wanted to stop people playing all day and all night?? Sorry to hear that MoneyPenny got some abuse. Obviously can't read it now but all sounds a bit bizarre. Thanks for all you have done to try and get what used to be a good game back up and running.

    A QUICK REPLY TO MONEY PENNYS POST CONCERNING QUIZMASTERS.BIZ AND THE SONGPOP USERNAME DATABASE

    The Songpop Username Database DOES NOT contain a virus nor does our contact form or any other part of our website it is regularly checked by Google and if you were to do a search on the Google website diagnostics page you will see the website has a GREEN LIGHT which means its been checked by google and is virus free, if Google find a website to be harmful they will put up the message that im sure a lot of you have seen "Warning visiting this site may harm your computer etc etc" so please don't go around saying the website has a virus when it DOES NOT.

    As for your questions regarding our motives for creating the database let me explain www.quizmasters.biz is a website that was setup as a quiz website for quiz fanatics and quiz hosters where we share a vast amount of quiz material however from time to time we dedicate certain portions of the website to other projects that interest us ie:- The Songpop Username Database.

    We stumbled on this forum a week or so back and saw that many people were a little angry about the introduction of the best match feature after a few beers and a chat with some of my friends we decided we may be able to help and started to create the Songpop Username Database so people can once again play users from all over the world and not just local users in their country.

    ITS TOTALLY FREE!!! and will always be TOTALLY FREE!!! we didn't create it to make money, we do not work for songpop, nor are we being paid.

    We work professionally in the video games industry programming games for consoles and apps for mobile phones, www.quizmasters.biz and everything on it is a hobby of ours we do this kind of thing for fun, we do it because we enjoy it, that's all.

    We are seriously considering developing an app to rival Songpop that has all the features of the old version and many more but sadly that would require a great amount of effort and isn't something we would be able to do for free, watch this space you never know, we hope this explains a little about what our motives are and why the Songpop Username Database was created.

    If you havent registered yet you can do so here www.quizmasters.biz/songpop/menu.html - All users will receive a challenge from somebody at Quizmasters.biz (Probably Me) we do this to validate your username and check that it exists any usernames that are fake or do not exist will be deleted from the list, so please when you signup make sure you type your username correctly (Its Case Sensitive)

    Have Fun, Enjoy And Spread The Word!!!
