I’m the co-founder of voicelink.fm, thanks a lot for sharing our service @Christiankoeln! Sorry for switching to English. I’m Dutch and can read German, but writing it is still quite the challenge, I hope that’s okay.
It is correct that we’re asking listeners to register as well, and we’re aware that this might be an obstacle for some. We have two reasons for doing this. First of all, by making it a bit less anonymous we hope to prevent spam and other unwanted messages. And secondly, in the future we want to expand the service with other ways to engage with your audience. So having them connect to you through a profile makes it future proof, so to speak.
Besides that, we’re hoping to launch social logins (Facebook and Google) this week, to make it a bit less annoying for listeners.
I would love to hear input on this though! Maybe there’s another way to solve these problems.
