Also, has anyone ever told you that you look like a young Alex Lifeson?not until today! i'll happily add that one to the list though ;D
- Varg Vikernes
- Alex Lifeson
gobblemeister has consistantly submitted "rapefunk" submissions to every single contest regardless or criteria - half of them being really bad - admittedly his rapefunk style did coincide with one of the contests and he actually ended up winning it, which could have been a fluke or a rare reading of the rules, I do not know.
However this time he submitted another rapefunk song and it did NOT conform to the rules at ALL - no rave style, no voice acting samples, and I said enough, and told him he couldn't submit anymore to the contests.
then in the biggest show of butthurt I have ever seen in the portal every troll in general hopped into that thread and hurled insults, which I all promptly ignored except for one which asked why he was disqualified, in which I posted the rules that anyone whose submission does not conform to the rules is immediately disqualified, as I am sick of people not reading the rules.
They then posted his altered submission which now has vocals, one which was one of the examples I later posted in the thread as It was getting closer to the date.
Sorry but I don't respect those who don't respect the NACs - you may have changed your submission but that doesn't mean you get to qualify for the finals - sorry. I've had to either disqualify or not allow through half of his submissions in the past, and the other judges agree - so like I said, if you have a problem with this, either take it up with tom, or make your own contest please, leave drama out of the thread as it only looks bad on yourselves and nobody else, as only people who are butthurt hurl insults the way you guys did.
and jarrydn is right, unfortunately my contests might not always be agreed upon in one form or other, but I have never ever missed a monthly contest, and the point of the contests isn't to cater to your individual egos but to:
a) increase exposure of new talent in the audio portal
b) allow people to collaborate with each other and other parts of the site
c) increase the image of quality submissions in the portal
to be perfectly honest, I'd LOVE to be able to give this to someone else to do sometimes, but the truth of the matter is I don't think anyone else would keep up on it. So I am sorry if you feel slighted in some way, but noone says you HAVE to enter these contests, and noone says you cannot make your own.
