Ok... this thread has been made countless times from various people here on NG thinking they are making an original point that will change NG history. I know very well that I am not, this is simply my statement about this fucking god awful NG audio voting system....
For starters, look at the top 5 of the week. Four of the places were skanked by this dick who thought it would be awesome to abuse the system so easily by mass voting his songs up to the top, two of them that were submitted today. The 5th one was submitted today by a user who made the score extra high by getting his friends to vote on it in the previous 3 hours from when it was posted just tonight. All of these 5 songs have a score of n/a in the rankings list, which i thought would make them ineligible for the weekly top 5 anyway.
There are people this week, and every week, who work so hard on music that is amazing and superb, but never noticed because of the one occasional 0 that effects the score tenfold all because of the low vote count. I listened to some beautiful music this week that deserved those top 5 places way more than the shit that was cranked out by the two that got it on there.
I guess their only penalty will be a slight guilt... if any. If I could proove their malicious voting ways, I would be a bit happier since they would be brought to Justice. There is plenty of evidence, but sadly none of it is really raw data. It would be up to the Mods to decide on their fates... if any.
Second of all, the only songs that really get noticed are the ones that get into the top of the week, and get on the top 50 of the dance, ambient, techno, trance, dubstep, hip-hop, and classical categories. None of the other categories barely get noticed. So many songs are just lost in the dirt of 0 bombers.
Its like anyone here has the power to walk into an art museum, rip the mona lisa in half, and put their painting in place of it. Of course, we can not compare our music to the mona lisa, but you get the analogy unless im just a retarded philosophical nerd.
The audio portal has been abused for YEARS now... luckily Tom has been pursuing audio related contests and mentioning them in his uber front page news posts, but I never even see the winners of those contests get much recognition.
Its like the audio portal doesnt give a shit about the quality of the song, but only cares if the owner can ruin everyone elses and then make it to the top, spitting in the other songs faces.
No wonder so many people leave the audio portal! There is SO much passion put into many songs, and no one seems to give a fuck but the occasional, thoughtful reviewer that just happened to come across a diamond in a cave.
Comments comments comments... Bah. Fuck the voting system.
