Lols. Sorry for that, I kind of went to bed at 6AM local time - which is actually when the new tops come up. Maybe I should have just pushed my bedtime another 5 minutes andposted the top5. Thanks though. :)

I think it was kind of to be expected F-777 would get top 5, because nowadays, he ALWAYS does when he has a new song out, lol.
I'm happy to see Kazmo twice in the top 30 too, I think that's been a while. Haven't checked out the rest yet.

#1 is most likely old - when there was no listens counter, and when downloads was only displayed. so it means that 1,768 people have listened to it since august of 2007.

True that. I tried to explain him how the use of a preset gate is cheap, unoriginal and recognizable but he didnt really seem to care :-P

#2 i putting a question mark on the legality of this song

I know Jahn, I think he actually contacted the original artist via myspace to get a remix pack.

#3 quite good, but not quite my style...

I think the master channel suffers slightly from some bad compressions, some weird little things happen with the volume and the dynamics all the time.
Other than that, quite an excellent song

#4 again, way to generic, nothing new or interesting...

Generic, yo

#5 gets repetitive way too quickly, other than that... good.

FL default samples, blargh
I explained it to him in a constructive way, he agreed :)
Then another reviewer came buy, told me I was an asshole :/

Not to de-rail this thread...but how does the All-Time list work? A song I submitted, OnOff, managed to get #6 this week, but I don't seem to have crazy high rating/listens or downloads. Meh?

Well if it got on there, that means you had 20+ votes, and your score was the 6th highest of all submissions with 20+ votes at that time. That's all there really is to it.

Their both short and sloppy. Pretty sure Bryce is an alt of Splatters, and both songs got proxy voted up. :( Or atleast I take getting 30 votes in a couple minutes likely the result of proxy voting.

Left this guy a huge review or should I say 2 huge reviews, hehe :P. Check them out xP.

I think I liked #4 the most. Even with its overly-action-packed drums and weird outro, that remix is one of the best Chrono Trigger remixes I've ever heard. The rest are actually quite good too. #3 was cool, even though it had some very weird transitions and random additions (such as that really strange tempo change at the end) and the sound effects weren't that well timed. I'd say from my order of preference it'd be #4, #3, #5, #2 and last being #1. The top 5 is muddled up...

Almost positive, check out the flash's on splatter's page.

Also, it's come to my attention the the top 5 has nothing to do with score, that's the top 30.

The top 5 goes by popularity = downloads / time.
I found this out by accident when linking external links to the download page of my song (http://newgrounds.com/audio/download/ID _number) and got first in top 5 of the week. The rule of 20 votes still applies. So maybe he was also proxy downloading?

lol idk.

yep, splatter, socom, splatter-socom, and his new alt bryce all use proxies to mass vote his songs. song quality is not an issue. he is cheating. clear flat out cheating. no holds bar cheating. He has won many top-5's bec uase he uses proxies to cheat. someone reprimand him already and ip ban him.

He has more alts then that unless I'm mistaken, and there is no secret that theres proxy voting/dling. Some sort of bot program.

I was a bit disapointed myself, I had a song scored at 4.33 I felt confident about getting weekly with. I'm not crushed that it didn't but proxy voting tomfoolery is a bit much.

Ohwell.

What if he was just embedding his song in a high traffic page? That's not cheating.

bull shit. Wyldfyre1 and I caught one of his songs a few months back with 90 votes and 70 listens. he still has the pic, and its in one of my posts a couple months back.

also, his myspace has I think thousands upon thousands of listens but only a handful of friends. I call bullshit

Multiple instances of his pieces following this trend, pleanty still lying around.

Also multiple instances of his media shooting up in just a few minutes from 15 votes to like 60. Also a large variety of his songs and videos just getting way higher scores then what a video/song of his skill sets calliber would garner.

Here is how the top 5 works:

your song has to have at least 10 votes in order to be "recognized" - listens doesnt really matter - nor does downloads - you can get a song on the top 5 with 0 downloads.

Also looking at current chart trneds anything with a score of less than 4.38 doesnt have much of a chance to get on the top 5.

Excluding this last week, past weekly (last 3-4) winners have been as low as 4.05-4.20.
