Don't start with the fighting again dammit or we'll be forced to kick you out. Sry but its in the rules. (Yes, calling someone an asshat tends to make him insult you back and so on and so on...)

Darklight or Supersteph shoot me a PM about signatures for this. With more time, assuming no one else is on the job, I can make something real good looking this time around.

I'll be sending you the pm with the basic layout in a couple of days. Feel free to start working on something of your own cos if we like it more we'll choose it ;)

Ah, I finally have an Internet connection...

Good to see it's already reached third page! Thanks to Darklight for sending the PM's and answering the questions, and to everyone else for joining. Thanks to SBB for demonstrating what NOT to do when you have a suggestion too :P. We can't wait to get this started!

Just to answer a few questions. The judging periods won't overlap, just like in the NGADM '09. Darklight explained why - we can't have someone editing the song after we've judged it. Not only that, but a few days of anxiety never hurts :P.

Also, about the judges helping with the auditions, at this point I'm not really too sure. On the one hand, loads of opinions will make it harder and longer to choose the auditions, but on the other hand, getting other judges' opinions will help reduce bias for sure.

I'll discuss it with Darklight when I get the opportunity.

Anyway, to everyone else, thanks for signing up, and keep auditioning! I might make an NGADM '10 Ideas/Suggestions thread sometime.

What if you let the judges speak their opinions, but leave the final decision to yourself and darklight?

Well...So what you're telling me, Darklight, is that we cannot post a new audition once we post it up here? Because I wish I had known that...I mean, I know you can't do that for the competition, but for auditions? Because as it stands, my audition is a loop...and I'd love to submit a song version with the loop as a motif, but if we can't submit more than one audition piece, how is that gonna work? =\

Hm... Im not certain if the audition system works the same as the competition system. However, as in ur case ur song is a WiP i dont think there'd be any problem if u just posted the full song of that. Its still editing the same song in a way so there shouldnt be a problem. Just dont post a completely different song...

What Darklight said is right - we'd prefer you to edit your submission rather than post a new one, but if you post a new audition, just make sure you keep it clear which one is your final audition. We'll be making a list of all the auditions at the end, with one audition per person, so we need to make sure that we know which is the preferred audition for every participant.

Basically, we prefer if you edit your track, but considering how long it'll take to get to mid-September, I think a bit of leniency is fair :). Just don't forget to make it clear which audition you want to be judged by though.

Sounds like every miss America contestant's wish; World Peace.

If perhaps we all listened to this, wore hemp pants, and held hands, we would understand we aren't so different from one another after all. I foresee a future where Jesus, Buddha and Allah are having a threesome, and none of their followers are disgraced by the homo-erotic activity, merely because all that matters in life is noize, and kick. No room for homophobia.

Amen brother. Amen!

That was actually the intent behind the original piece. I wanted to bring awareness of people's misunderstandings, and grow love and adoration between different people of different groups and religions from around the world.

I'm so glad you realized that when you listened to this piece.

Nope its cos he he got jealous of Blackhole's final submission and decided to submit a piece of garbage instead and as he so obviously did this to negate all the hard work Blackhole had put into his song he got disqualified.

We warned him that if he persisted in trying to convince us that his submission was serious (when it wasnt) then he'd be disqualified and banned from future NGADMs, he didnt take any notice, and he was disqualified, end of story.

Please, don't try and mess up this competition too. If you don't like the NGADM, just don't post and leave your noise kicks to yourself.
