That would be awesome if this months nac is trance!
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.
