Nah i don't care for the top 5 ,what i think is sad is how we are a bunch of hypocrites because there's always people acting like professional critics saying stuff like: "oh the quality is terrible" "NEEDS MORE BASS" "THERE'S NO SONG STRUCTURE" etc.

But then they love the noise of some random flash artist not because it's funny or good , they like it just because who that guy is. I bet you that if someone else would do something similar, it wouldn't be the same.

In conclusion :

You fart in public = Nobody cares.

Lady Gaga farts in public = Fuck the presidential elections, this is going to our newspaper frontpage.

How exactly are the top 30 songs decided, because it's not in order of score, listens, downloads or anything?

Eh?
They are originally the songs with the top scores across all the sections made at any time during the audio portal.
The scores just go up and down depending on whether people like them or not.

I think thats it at least.

Scores rankdoesn't matter much but number of votes decides your fate on that top 30 and even top 5.

If you have a score of 4.97 in one of your song with 12 votes in a week it doesn't mean you can make it to the frontpage. Tru?

I believe it goes like this:

Every week, the system checks the score of every submission, regardless of its genre or date submitted, and the ones with the top 30 highest scores at that moment are showcased in the Top 30. The only requirement to make it in is that you have a high enough score AND your song has 20 votes or more.

Multi-voting isn't possible on Newgrounds system. I believe even used proxy and changed account you couldn't fake your vote on here.

It goes by IP adresses, i think. Use multiple accounts and unsecured networks in your area and you're bound to make it up there.

Not that I'm talking out of experience or anything...

Anyways, not too impressed by this week's selection. Oh well, more reason to anticipate the redesign.

"It is an actual ocarina and unfortunately that's all I'm capable of playing"

Well then his recording skills are truly remarkable as i couldn't hear any breathing noises.

i got home after school and this was an extremely nice surprise, especially because i was under the impression that only songs posted within that week could get top 5.

Man, I thought I had a shot this week D: My 8-bit song was at 4.70ish until late monday when it got downvoted into oblivion. Regardless it got 600+ listens last week.

What are the requirements for weekly top 5 anyway? I can't believe the ocarina song made it up there.

P.s. Enjoyed the DnBs this week.
