    I know this may not even be possible, but I, along with others, hate it when an album is leaked by a stream. Whether it be from Youtube or Pitchfork or whatever, an album stream is NOT a Leak because there is not download link. Maybe upon Reporting A Leak, the user must provide proof of the leak with a download link that must be verified by staff. If that isn’t possible then maybe just provide a link as proof that isn’t shown to the pubic.

    What are your thoughts?

    With HIL 2, that’s all about to change.

    I disagree. Following a stream leads to an inevitable “link leak” (as you say) within a matter of hours. An album whose tracks are available in full before launch, to me, is a leak.

    Getting more notifications is also something that should be changed, I didn’t even know you guys replied. Alright cool, can’t wait for HIL 2.0.

    And I’d like to add further discussion to my post. I know a leak is the unauthorized release of tracks, that of which a stream is not and I get that. But for all intent and purposes on this site and the music world in general, I still feel it should be considered. If the label releases a stream, there are links available from unauthorized ripping weeks or days before launch, and the album page says “sealed” or “locked” or “has not leaked”, that would be even more inane than stating it has in my opinion.
