You guys making any plans to announce this site to a larger audience or are you guys just dealing with what's trickling in? I can see some serious potential in there. Hell, the review system alone makes newgrounds current audio portal come off like a joke...

Mich made a frontpage newspost, and as you might have noticed we've adopted sigs here in the NG bbs.

Very widespread advertising will probably occur after the the rest of the currently planned features are implemented (as you know, it's definitely still in early stages), and we've run the site for a while with a smallish userbase for testing purposes. We've already found a lot of little things that need to change with the relatively small number of users who are active.

Hell, the review system alone makes newgrounds current audio portal come off like a joke...

We spent a very long time working out how it would work, and I'm glad that people are liking it.

Before any publicity work is done for TheAudioPortal do change the color scheme. Its like a really ugly Unreal tournament theme. The layout is good, the shapes and whatnot are fine, but greys and red is just assault.

I know someone who could twiddle the graphics a bit for $. :P

Back at the ranch...

I have taught a friend to play didgeridoo, gave him a PVC one, and have commenced teaching him to ride the unicycle. In due time he will be adept at both, and will combine them. Then we will unicycle and didgeridoo at the same time. We may attempt to busk and make money as a uni-didge-duo.

TV appearance :D
I'm gonna be on national live TV with my band this Tuesday. One song only and it's a cover, but still my (and the band's) first TV appearance. There's this tribute marathon for Mashina, and the channel called me (directly me! I'm that important) and invited me and the band to show up. Gave us 5 days to learn the song though, and with another gig this Sunday, stuff are really difficult right now. Still, we gonna be on TV :D

If someone could record it I'll post it on Youtube and let you guys see.

Same deal with me. At this point sigs are just something my eyes gloss over. I only just now realized you guys had those audio portal sigs :(

As I've mentioned before, I really don't have a budget for having a design done.
There's one guy who's active in design who said he'll cook up something, I'm curious as to what it'll be.

And by the way, thanks for all the positive feedback guys! :)

Dam, I just snapped my headphones for the third time. It seems they are approaching the end of their line (5 years in service).

I'm clueless as what to do know, I know these headphones like the back of my hands, and I haven't to this date found one single pair that sounds nearly as good.

I know them so good infact that I can make a kickdrum on them and be 95% certain that it sounds just as I want it to sound on a bigger system

Argh, where's all my Liquid Funk massive? :(

Hope I'm not ranting but the Drum & Bass section of this site has always been filled with generic Pendulum. I hope I'm not offending anyone, it just seems like everyone's been making the same sort of stuff and there's only a very small limited number of artists who I've seen dabble into the softer jazzier vibe inducing stuff that's known as Liquid Funk or Liquid D&B.

More recently it seems like there's been a lot of dub-step, but again it's only the really heavy stuff..

In short, why is it that the Drum & Bass section here is only filled with HARDCORE super-bass heavy D&B and Dub-step?

I make a lot of mellow, slow, relaxing trance and orchestral tracks these days. I never can make epical tracks, they are just not for me. I guess I have a nature of a peaceful man and I'm more talented at mellow and slow tracks. Well, good enough for me. I love trance and classical tracks as well as orchestral tracks.

If you want things to change, start by submitting your own work that you want more of. If it's good, people will catch on.

Ha ha, I have for quite a few years too.

Quick question, but would it be possible that you opened up yourself to legal issues with this? You've pretty much just taken the same name as what is present here on Newgrounds, and just did a slight overhaul of the voting procedure. I'm not saying its not a nifty new site and that it's a bad idea or anything. The site looks great so far. But it seems like it's so similar to what is already here that it would open you up to possible legal problems.

The similarities are astounding. You have a weekly tops list, an all time list (even though it is labeled slightly different), and a most recently submitted list for the portal page. The forums seem to be exactly the same with just a different styled display (different shade of gray and an emphasis on red instead of orange frame, same styled font it looks like, same physical setup for the forum, i.e. pics on the left with post count, sign up date, and level under the pic) and lack of the ability to have signatures. And really, you used the exact same name for your site as Newgrounds uses here for their audio submissions page.

I could just be bringing up an issue that doesn't exists, but if it were me I would have tried to do something a little bit more.....original. Because it just seems like it's just like Newgrounds, except the leveling. reviewing, voting systems are different. Idk, just seems like it's so much like Newgrounds present audio portal setup that you could be opening yourself to some sort of legal issues is all. Especially since you used the exact same name for your site that has been in place here for years.

Well, this a public forum and since I think they would be trying to promote it and not privatize it, that would make sense.

...ect. ect.

In most cases I think this would be completely true. The only thing that really says otherwise is that the AP here is 99% non-profit / non-revenue, unlike the FP. But I definitely agree with you that this should be looked into.

The concept of a system for publishing audio for community review/interaction is not exclusive to newgrounds.

And that didn't answer my question at all. I didn't say that having a system for publishing audio for community interaction is exclusive to Newgrounds. I said the fact that it's literally the same as this present audio portal on Newgrounds might lead to legal issues. Especially considering the people who made the new site, The Audio Portal, used the exact same name for their site as is already used here. It's something that should at least be considered and discussed.

Most places like Newgrounds have legal protection for the names of their products/services/etc. So it seems like its an obvious lawsuit waiting to happen, which would just end up leading to the site being shut down.

I guess I can see where you're coming from, though to be totally honest this is not the venue for this discussion. I will say I don't personally feel there's much of a case for a lawsuit in this instance.

Fair enough. It was just the first thing that came to mind when I saw the site, and I thought the issue might just have been overlooked is all. The site looks good in general, albeit a virtual carbon copy of Newgrounds in display for the most part. Good luck with it.

I have never noticed a copyright or trademark sign near the audio portal button or anything like that; and as loans mentioned, The concept of a portal isn't really copyrighted.

It is obvious that I was inspired by Newgrounds, since I really like this site; but it'll look more different over time, getting its distinct features and everything.

So are you saying I stole something from Newgrounds? Because the layout and such looks rather similar? I did create everything from scratch, I did not in fact actually get something from Newgrounds; barely ideas.
