It's weird anyway. Before the redesign, everybody who got a spot in the Top 5 could make an FP post every two weeks. I don't think that's the case now. Would be nice if an admin could explain something about this new 'feature'.

Front Page posts are enabled once you reach either level 10 or 15, can't remember which, but it doesn't have to do with getting a top 5 spot.

Wut? No way, from what I've heard a musician can't post on the front page until he gets a top 5 spot. I'm level 26 and I've never gotten a spot; I can't FP post.

By the way, they've changd again:

I stand corrected. I didn't notice when I could start posting to front page, just that all of a sudden a few year's back I could. I'd thought it was relative to level. Ya learn something new every day!

And yeah, Liquid, it's been swaying back and forth between the two lists every couple hours. If it's meant for granting more people exposure, I'm down with that idea. :)

The Senate enjoys when Norske and AaronMusslewhite get a top spot because their music consistently rocks, even when it is meant to be soft. As well as Senator John Dean. He roxx as well.

I don't get it.. half the time I see a set of songs with me and Norskedrittsekk's submissions, other times I see a different set with ParagonX9.

I don't get it too. I cleared all my caches and it still shows. The chart seems to be switching song positions every 1-2 hour(s).

Must be a serious glitch in the system...

That's also why this is no longer updated.

I was hoping I'm not going to get feature again and yet it plays on me. I figure the more times I get featured the more haters I get after.

I don't see why you would ask that question, but it's possible. The artist must be good, he gotten 2 sumbission in a top week deadline. But there has been much more sumbission, one by an artist who have gotten songs in 3 weeks in-a-row. It's all about taking time on songs, following rules, and finding loop holes around of "what makes the track more interested". The loop hole is creativity...=)))


Lein the music.

It seems pages have gone missing, I remember 2 songs I got being posted way after the post before yours.

Meh this page should be kept up to date, the weekly tops don't seem to see the attention as before the redesign.

Yes, because the system is broken and unpredictable.

That's not gonna work. The tops have become too unpredictable and seem to change during the week. After the redesign I tried to keep up with them by posting the tops here for a few weeks but apparently they are unstable as fuck so I decided to quit it.

I am not surprising to see HipHop or Dubstep 'artists' gain most on this.

This is the first time I've seen one user claim three out of the eight available slots. Anyone smelling something suspecious?

It is ALWAYS suspicious as fuck. It's the same thing years ago.

Someone is cheatin'. Somebody was 0-bombin' everyone. But we can't stop that.
We don't know. Aye!

Maybe the dude is really in luck?

They're below 4/5 right now. I was extremely positive that Kor-Rune and BlazingDragon's NGADM Round 4 songs would get a spot, but I guess the anonymous zero-bomber said 'fuck you, no'.

Every average AP regular can spot fishy ranking every Tuesday night by just looking at submissions pop in or out.

We trust no one in here. I can't confirm only the mainstream folks are guilty as fuck but I don't want to be one side biased jerk. I had witnessed and suspicioned Classical people did mass voting in 2009. Oh wait, their music couldn't even be listed as Classical...

In fact, Dubstep and Hiphop or Voice Demo people are just newbs around here. Before that (and still now) you have Video Game assholes whom downvotes everything that doesn't sound like Sonic da Hedgehog or Final Fantasy, OR their own fucking MIDI rips. The good old 2008-2010.

Arguing about it is pointless. Gotta live with whatever happens, even when shit happens.

Very true.

All we can do now is pray to God and hope that next week won't be as 'shit' as this one. Dubstep and Hip Hop are genres that I personally don't enjoy.

Amen.

If you can't beat 'em, then join 'em? :P Since I don't have any deity to pray to, it's probably useless for me to not to have sympathy with the perpetrators! Hah!

Cheers...

If the Choir samples are ripped straight from Halo 4 and are copyrighted, then it would violate the rules. I can't confirm that, though, since I never, ever played Halo before.

Yeah, there is a song cut a part of Halo soundtrack, problem is I can't remember which original tracks. Whoever fonds with Halo games might help us.

Thanks Criminal-23 >(^.^)>
