Hey Community! It's time again for the "Question of the Week" 🙂
This week we celebrated 10 years since the Spotify Community launched on February 8, 2012. Time flies when we're having fun in the Community! 🎂 🔟 💚
I've written 2 blog posts to look back on how things have changed and you can find more blogs posted by Staff and Stars on the blog:
10 Year Evolution: Spotify Community
10 Year Evolution: Spotify Apps
This week's question:
When did you start using the Spotify Community forum?
To view the year you created your Community account, you can click your username at the top of the page and go to your profile and look at the "member since" section.
Also, let us know why you started using the Spotify Community.
Was it to get help, post feedback, vote on ideas, chat about music, etc?
🎵 It would also be great if you could share a few of your favorite songs from the year you started using the Spotify Community.
Post your answer below to be part of the conversation.

I started using the Spotify Community in 2012 right away after it launched.
The main reason I made an account was to post the idea for a Repeat One option. I stayed around to help other users and provide my feedback to improve the Spotify app, and now I've been a member of the Spotify Stars Program for almost 10 years.
A few of my favorite songs from the year 2012:

Treat others the way you want to be treated!
Great question Matt! I was introduced to the community in 2018 by searching ways to engage with people on Spotify. This community expanded my taste in music and a greater appreciation for it.
POSTED 5 of my favorite songs in 2018
Great question, @MattSuda!
I joined the Spotify Community in 2014, although I didn’t post anything at the time, and don’t remember my reason for creating a Community account 😅
2019 was the year when I began actively participating on the Spotify Community, initially to share my playlists and see if anyone else on the Community likes the same genres of music and artists as I do. I think I might have posted a playlist in a thread on the Community in 2018, but I’m not 100% certain about that; and the earliest posts on my profile are from 2019.
Here are 3 of my favorite songs from 2014, when I created my Community account:
And here are 3 of my favorite songs from 2019, when I started posting on the Community:
i just joined today and am very new. i joined to share my idea with community in hopes it can become an reality.
I actually just found out about the Spotify Community last week. It's a great place to read about artists, podcast suggestions, and overall ideas about the platform.
Here's one of my favorite tracks from my first album released this past November.
Aww, a warm welcome to the Community @rynhardt! ✨
If you haven't already, you can take a moment to introduce yourself here and tell us a bit more about yourself, or meet like-minded folks!
Welcome to you as well @boochesguitars! ✨
Glad to hear you're enjoying the content here! If you're into fresh releases from up-and-coming artists, each month the talented @osornios writes a fantastic blog called #MusicMonday Review. If you're curious, the latest edition is here.
May 2012 for me.
Fun question, @mattsuda
I've been an active member 2016-12-14 10:40 PM, but started using Spotify on 2011-12-. My first community contribution was on 2019-05-06 when I was trying to find a way to make it so my "Discover Weekly" playlist wouldn't pay attention to the chill out work music I listened to (I didn't want to discover new music based on boring background music!). I used the community to figure out software workarounds and to give ideas that might improve the user experience (which I still do).
Here are a few 2016 songs in alphabetical order:
Quite a genre array and an extensive list for a quick reply but sorry not sorry!
Oh wow @spiritofradio - you should be getting a 10 year in the Community badge too!
I think @MattSuda and @Soundofus already got theirs on their Communi-versary date, if you wanna peek how it looks!
Congrats in advance, ten years is no small feat 👏
Ohh, these are some nice tunes, thanks for sharing Jake!
I apparently made my user in one afternoon in 2015. That's what my profile says: 2015-03-11 2:41 PM
Spotify web player had just got a facelift which dropped the play queue feature. It was something i heavily relied on, so I joined the front of displeased web player users... : ) And I found out a way on how to revert to the old version using user agent spoofs from someone in here, and committed to spreading that information to others.
And thanks to this commitment I'm now here!
2015 was also the year I discovered Amon Tobin (in October though), so here's the song that proceeded to rock my world in the coming years:
And now I'm part of another very lovely little community consisting of Amon Tobin fans, and Amon himself is also there, popping in now and then to chat with us. : )
I’ve been in this community forum ever since June 29, 2020. I joined because their was an issue with the app (that is now resolved).
My fav songs of 2020 are right here
Hey there you, Yeah, you! 😁 Welcome - we're glad you joined the Spotify Community! While you here, let's have a fun game…
