I appreciate all the hard work you guys go through, it's great not for the cash, but completely for the joining! Im a bit gutted I havent made anything for almost a year simply because of work and a lot of other things. But the Nac is always great to listen to. I always check out the results/winners and sit and listen to them.

If this becomes too expensive to run, i'd hope that it could continue through into 2013. Even just for enjoyment sake. It is however a lot of work for you guys to organise, and work on. So I can understand if it has to cease to exist.

For what it is worth, I loved taking part, and when I didn't I felt upset I couldn't get time to.
:)


Erm, eh....yeahhhh..

IIRC I've only ever entered one NAC...and I never made it to the Top 8 in that one either. ^^

Most of the themes for the other contests were either too difficult or something way too weird. xD But it was still fun checking what the theme was for each contest and the winning submissions for each one.

Thanks for everything, Chronamut. I can't imagine the amount of work you had to do for this every month for 2 years...

If it helps: I'm really sad to hear the Nac's are down :(
At least we've had some fun times participating.

*EPIC DREDGE*

ok so copypasta from my newspost:

So some people are requesting a NAC for 2014

for those of you that don't know, I ran the newgrounds audio contests from the beginning of 2011 to the beginning of 2013. There was controversy and drama but eventually they ran smoothly. I stopped however as I was sick of dealing with people's shit - mostly mods passive aggressive snarky shit, who clearly did not like me and clearly wanted to replace me with the MACs - which were the monthly audio contests - the original contests which eventually died out.

From what I can see the contests being run aren't very consistent - with the MAC not even being monthly. (I checked and couldn't see a MAC run from after march, buit I may have overlooked some title change or something - I have notived mainly contests that span months and months, which is also cool, like the NGADM and the NGAT)

I have not been focusing too much on newgrounds this year so perhaps I simply have overlooked the threads - so the question remains - do you audio portalers want a return of the NACs? They would be every month. I don't know if I burned my bridge with Tom so I don't know if you could get prizes or front page exposure, as I am not a mod or audio mod and thus have no real power (another issue the mods had with me) so all I can really promise is a sig and a well organized contest.
let me know.

you can also post a response in my newspost:

just a question if any of you would be interested in a NAC 2015 revival. I was hoping my 2 years of running them would have spurred a self -run movement by the users to keep them up.. and it seemed it did work for like.. 2013.. but fell short when the ng store was removed. I might be able to see if tom can give actual money like they do with other contests.

Lemme know.
