I'm guessing my vocal-less remix of Oh Come All Ye Faithful would not be allowed in the winter/ christmas contest, right?

aw, hell!

I didn't take into account that one who works in the toy business won't have much free time during the last weeks of the year. I had a pretty decent base set up for a song and lyrics that sum up what I feel like every christmas: I hate it until it happens and I'm home with my family. Well, I guess I will complete it next year. Best of luck to everyone who did participate.

If it's a funk theme, I'll definitely enter both contests. The tedium of working on the orchestral submission will have me ripping my hair out and screaming at inanimate objects. Doing a FUN-k submission at the same time would be a much-needed sanity preserver.

I suppose having a pure funk contest could be interesting. Alright sure why not - I'll type it up later :)

In future I see the mac/nac harmony increasing as people who are disinterested in one can do the other :)

that's how it's meant to be anyways - 2 different approaches :)

I said I'd be available to help out if you needed it. You have to find your own sweep judges now thugh.

For January, if you can't find anyone else, I'll help you do the sweep phase ok?

I'll be busy during the sweep period for February though.

Update from Tom: he had issued store credit for the DECEMBER NAC winners but had somehow overlooked the November NAC winners - their store credit has now been issued - enjoy! :)

In the past, Tom has contacted winners personally, has this changed or is my inbox really broken, as I suspected?

Seriously, three other people have yet to get back to me so it must be broken.

...the four right chords can make me cry

Tom never contacted the winners personally for the NACs - it was always to me and then I posted it in this thread.

I think the answer you're looking for is 'it has changed since we started doing NAC's.

The PM system is fine, because I was just talking to Tom over it.

It's not like it was a social call... I was just confirming details of future happenings in the audio portal. Although I do talk to Wade on a fairly regular basis.
