Just put the link of your song without linking it, just copy and paste it, then paste it. And you will get something like this:

Lol, becuase when you write in the top you choose the option *Link*, dont choose it, just copy and paste the link in the thread, dont link it. For example: Cake (i just put it) cake (i linked it) See the difference? With your technique it will be this way:
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/490819

But what i did here, i only copied the link paste it, i didnt do anything else:

ok all the results are in.. just have to make the winning sigs.. I will do that tonight when I get home.

also since I'm at work this months nac will be made at some point today and will be an industrial infused dnb/dubstep theme, with the goal being that the song has to at least have a bass that is some industrial sound.. car engine.. heavy machinery, etc. And you can reesify and wub wub it from there, but at the beginning of the song it has to be present in its raw form and slowly distorted so people can see it is indeed an industrial sound being used. :P

I have a question about the July contest. Like can you use the indsustrial sounds as bass but also mix it with DNB/dubstep baslines?

the sound has to be an industrial sound - how you alter it after that is up to you - so yes you can use a dnb/dubstep basline

so like dubstep would be like VROOM VR-VROOM VR-VR-VR-VR-V-V-V-R-R-R-V-V-V-VR-VR-VR..

Ok im still really unsure. So im just going to ask first if you think this song is qualified to be submitted in this NAC.
The intro is a traditional dubstep song then machine sounds come into play. So is this ok?

this is a competition thread.. a new competition is help every month based on the input of the users from newgrounds.

It generally starts within the first.. say.. 3 days of the month and runs until the 3rd week of the month, with the last week being used to pick a top 8 and to judge.. or in theory anways (most judges are lazy and just judge at the last minute haha..)

as for if remixes are allowed.. usually no.. as we wish to see what you are capable of yourselves.

I have the results.. I don't have the sigs ready as I got the results at like 2 am last night and I am busy tonight so I may just post the results and post the sigs after.

also the MAC did a metal one.. I like to think that between the MAC and NAC that we can pretty much cover all the genre bases..

I dunno.. I feel the "rave" part of newgrounds is being neglected.. I think that could be a cool contest.. but what would be the twist..

hey guys just wanted to add this blurb:

I know I run the nacs - that doesn't mean however that I somehow own the rights to run all audio competitions on newgrounds - I simply volunteer to it and relay the results to tom.

That does not mean that you cannot ask tom to run your own contest, or even ask me, and I can just inform him the next month that the nac and another contest is being run so that he supplies store credit to both, as from what I hear tom doesn't always answer to everyone as I am sure he can be a bit busy sometimes.

The MACs tend to run bi-monthly when other contests like the RAC and the NGADM are not running, so there is room for other contests. I never meant to make it look like I was trying to CONTROL the whole operation.. it's just one of those things where some people are just better at running things consistantly, as history in the audio portal has shown, people's lives tend to get in the way, even when the contests are manned by several people.

And I know that for a lot of my monthly contests some issue or other has arisen but keep in mind that I am learning just as much as everyone else, and I am trying to do the best I can, but it is really hard to see every single angle all the time and usually something big erupts that I never foresaw.. thus it is not easy, nor is weathering the hate, when in reality without the NACs, sometiems there simply would not be any contests at all.

And we forget sometimes that this site exists purely for people to have fun, and that NOBODY is stating you HAVE to enter these contests - if the contest doesn't seem fair, explain why and perhaps those issues can be fixed the next month - you all have input for this contest and any others you want to make through this thread, and the majority of the time I actually use your ideas for the NACs so really it is still a contest where people's ideas come to fruition - so please see it as that. There has been a lot of hate over time and really, in the end.. it all boils down to ego, and we all need to see past that.

so the question becomes.. are you guys happy with these contests? I know it is only a fan contest unlike say the MAC.. and that hostility towards it has sorta ebbed since last year.. but reflecting on it it does feel like I am sorta trying to steal the show here. Not my intent I just didn't want to entrust a lot to people with busy lives who couldn't provide consistancy. I do admit that in a way I also wanted to leave some sorta imprint on the site that would both help it and prevent me from fading into obscurity. I don't know if that is a wrong mentality or simply a survival one so I won't touch it.

Technically with the MAC back this contest is no longer necessary, as it was only meant to provide a placeholder in the MAC's absence.

So the real question is.. do you guys want the NAC to run through 2013? And if so would more people be willing to help out? I've been working a bit with a skeleton crew for the past little while with Realmguys having his kid and Evil-dog working from home and brokendeck migrating to the MAC so sometimes it's a bit difficult to keep things on.. schedule.

Let me know your thoughts.
