Is there any place on Grooveshark to systematically flag songs that are "bad"? I find a lot of songs refuse to play at all, or cut out halfway through.

You need to flag the song by doing the following:

  • Hover your mouse over the song until you see the options menu come up.
  • The options menu is represented by a "+" with a down arrow next to it.
  • Click the gear, choose the "Flag Song" option and select what is wrong with the song from the menu.

    Flag a song in Grooveshark

You should flag a song if it will not play, skips, is low-quality, mislabeled, contains explicit lyrics, or has the wrong album art.

Oh, awesome. I somehow share songs all the time without ever noticing that link. – extropic-engine Jun 23 '11 at 9:30
Hmm, actually, I just checked and it doesn't seem to be there anymore. I guess they took it out. – extropic-engine Jun 23 '11 at 9:36
@chuzzum: Are you sure? I've just logged on and the option appears for me. – codingbadger Jun 23 '11 at 9:42
Ah, I see. You have to select the options menu when the song is in the "now playing" area, if you select it from a song in the library area it only shows the add to playlist and sharing options. That may explain why I never noticed it. :) – extropic-engine Jun 23 '11 at 9:45
Is there some way to flag a song that is not in the playlist? – svick Feb 27 '13 at 11:06
