He flat out called out Rig and said he was a part of the negative side of the audio community. That is unacceptable considering Rig is one of, if not the most consistent audio mod. If not for Rig, I'm not sure how the audio portal would even survive to be honest. The other audio mods are great, but Rig is the one that really helps to keep things under control. And to say he is a part of the negative audio community is far from acceptable from an admin.
"Although a Hania song bumped off one of the best songs on the portal for some reason, in the middle of the week. It must've been an admin. THEY'RE the ones who don't care."
That is correct, we regularly go into the database and alter scores. Actually, no, we don't. Ever.
"Yeah, I see your point there. Maestrorage is the only winner who fits the criteria so far - work used in popular flash, AND active in the community. The admins really don't pay attention to the community.
Seriously, they don't. Most of them hate posting."
Wait, you're speaking on my behalf, now?
"They put up a great pretense of us being equal, but behind the scenes, they just don't care."
"You can tell that the admins care about NG's audio community from their pick for musician of the year."
"Hey Admins. You're more than just flash now. You're a damn multimedia conglomerate. Audio artists have as much legitimacy - we shouldn't have to be featured in every popular flash in order to be recognized for what we bring to the musical community."
Can you tell me where the positivity is in any of those quotes, Gravey? I'd love to know.
I'd also like to know where these Private messages to me on this matter, instead of public forum posts, have gotten to.
I also saw a post by someone who wrote something along the lines of, "Don't they give Oscars out to the same person more than once?"
Yes, they do. But the ones who lose out to those awards don't bitch and cry about it afterwards, they congratulate the winner and then move on.
THAT kind of behaviour pisses me off, and that's what I'm getting at. If you disagree with something, fine. Keep it to yourself, though, rather than bashing your supposedly fellow audio artists in public.... and if you really need to express your opinion on the matter publicly, don't be surprised when others reply.
