I'm thinking if Steph wanted to judge you should at least consider it. I mean the fact that he's trusted enough to be an Audio Mods says something about his experience and maturity. 4 years experience ain't bad at all.

That's a horrible mentality, age is probably one of the least things that effects maturity, I find Steph one of the most responsible and mature users in here, and like brockendeck said, he's an audio mod which means he's trusted by an ample amount of users, mods AND admins.

Not only that but he judged in a good amount of competitions, one of them being the NGADM, the largest audio forum competition, in a long time.

and biased? seriously? Steph makes Classical Music, likes Trance and used to Make, and if you look through his favourites list, you'll find more than enough proof that he isn't biased.

I for one, think Steph should be a judge.

While I don't think I'm nearly as mature/responsible as the above two guys are saying, I wouldn't mind judging for a future NAC if you take that rule away/make an exception and if the NAC theme is something I can relate to.

Fine I'll make it 16 but NO less. And imo age VERY much has a factor - ESPECIALLY on this site - I've seen the behaviours of more 14 year olds through verious avenues of this site than the majority of you - and I don't feel like RISKING good judging on the fact they MAY be mature.

also knock it off with the false modesty please.

I'm actually not being modest. I'm certainly not one of the most responsible/mature people on this site, and I can very easily act immaturely at times, especially in real life. Age does affect maturity - not entirely, but it's one of the factors, and it isn't so easy for a 16-year old to be as mature as a 20+ year old... And there are plenty of people over 20 on this site.

Also personally I think you should take away the age limit altogether, and simply stick to the old rule of not allowing people to judge if you've never heard of them. That's a more accurate way to decide on who judges, since being known in the Audio Forum/Portal shows that they have some form of determination to maintain a good profile and a form of musical talent to make them stand out as recognisable in an audio-oriented community, both of which are important for judging.

Just giving some suggestions :3.

well ultimately I choos users who I feel comfortable with and have a high level of familiarity with - if I don't have that then I have no guarantee you'll actually submit results in time. So if anyone here wants to be a judge - try to get more familiar with me, both on the site and off it. All the judges that have ever judged this so far I have a high level of familiarity with both on and off the site.

ok so for august I am going to throw some suggestions out there.. and choose based on popular vote.

here are your 2 options:

Remix Contest
you basically take any song off the portal and remix it - judging is done based on how much BETTER the judges feel you made your version compared to the original. Sweeping is based on elimination of those who did worse remixing than the original.

Fire and Ice Contest

this idea haerkens back to 2006/2007 from the old MACs - it was an idea I had where you make 2 songs.. of completely opposing elements, and then make a song that is the 2 songs combined where both opposing elements perfectly intertwine and harmonize with each other.

So it's like taking a sharf of one song combining it with a different elemental shard of another song and gettign a fusion complete version. So at the end you would have 3 songs. Your first half, your second half, and then the combined final. Filtering can be done on the final but really it has to be like you simply overlay the 2 songs and they work out perfectly.

TOOL did something like this - I can't remember the name of the 2 songs but separate they sound cool but overlapped they sound complete.

also september NAC has already been locked idea wise - an animator wants to be involved in it and have people make songs for his games- more to come on that when the time comes.

When you say remix, what's that mean? 'Cause I'd like to do something I wanted to do for a while, a little something I'd call demixing.

Demixing would simply imply taking a dubstep track and demix it to something accoustic, like classic rock, jazz, classical, funk, etc.

I think that would definitely be awesome, and that would certainly have my vote! :P

The porn-themed June NAC winners have been frontpaged, but we're leaving out hamstercake and frontpaging #2 - #5 instead. Currently there have been some suspicions brought up against hamstercake and until we're sure that he's a legitimate artist, we're not going to frontpage any of his submissions.
