I listened to your earlier recording of the organ chorale, BWV 690. Comparing it to your recent recording the stop sounds different and the playing is to my ears less confident. I don't know much about the standards of the site back then but it must have been a lot lower.
Yes it was. In fact there was seldom a reason to reject something, whereas now we pick recordings to death and make people redo them. Despite some people may have left because of this, I believe the site is better for it.
I looked at your list and am nearly speechless! Of course, something of this magnitude can only be a personal decision. I imagine that in one way it's sad for you to delete those recordings. I know it would be for me, so I admire your honesty and courage. On the other side of the coin, we can now look forward to your forthcoming new and replacement recordings.
I had this idea for a long time, but what triggered me is that I directed someone to my page saying "but don't listen to this one, and this one, and ....". I feel relieved that now I no longer need to apologize for any recording (although there are more that will probably go). I did hesitate for a while before throwing off all my Chopin Mazurkas, as some of them may have been decent, but if I redo them I may as well redo them all. It will not be a great hardship.
