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.
