What must I do to get a multi-authored audio submission? After weeks of taxing collaboration, the great CosmicAlfonzo and I have created an eargasm of song, but we can't list two authors in the submission.

At this point, vanity screams, "Why can't I be the one to submit the fucking song?"

And logic is all like, "WTF why can't there be two authors?"

And I go, "Shit, let me ask the forum."

So here I am (feel free to parody that last section). But in all honesty, I really do believe that the ability to list multiple authors on a single audio submission is important if the creative process between individuals here on Newgrounds is to flourish and be successful. Otherwise you're going to get a bunch of cock-eyed guitar players submitting the same song repeatedly. And, say, the collab extends beyond two. Shit...

Liljim, where you at?

Just both submit it and mention it was a collab in the comments, or suck it up and only submit it on one of your guys accounts.

On the other hand, if you planned to collab again in the future, you could always create a joint account just for your collabs.

It'd be nice if everyone in the audio community submitted it.

I'm pretty sure that's not an option, but if you really wanna try... Go hard.

Sorry for the DP. Harr... Double Penetra... Yeah.

I've attached the icon below if you'd like to submit this thing to the glory hole.

Or you could make your own. Whatever you want. Just do it.

This problem has been presented many times in the past actually, and don't worry its coming with the new NG update. None of us really know WHEN the update is because, last time I checked, Tom hasn't actually announced a "due date" to his staff on when to finish the said update which will include many extra features on all of Newgrounds.

Jim has a thread where everyone posts their ideas for the "Ng Evolution MK2", but I have, along with many others, presented this idea to the thread. It is obviously a very needed addition, and will come in good time.

The best thing you can do now is create a collaboration account that both of you have access to. This way, you both can respond to reviews... you both can make comments... and you both get recognition.

Although, I really dont know what your talking about with the whole "everybody submit it" sort of thing...

Flash authors can have multiple accounts in their credits.. I don't see how it would be too much harder to code such a thing into newgrounds.

Honestly, I think the Newgrounds audio portal has the potential to be something fantastic with audio collaboration. Right now, the audio portal soly exists to be the flash portal's bitch.

I declare an Audio Portal Revolution! Too long have we been oppressed by the fascist flash portal regime! We should be equals! Equals damnit! For the people! Do it for AMERICA!

This is what the relationship between the Flash Portal and Audio Portal looks like now.

It's time for us to call child services, guys.

Here's a giant bright eyed dream of how it should look....Take a cue from ancestry.com as a figure. Use branches in conjunction with collaborating. Anytime certain artists collaborate they have, now, the new creation of an ALIAS, a.k.a. A BAND NAME. And a figuritive entitty web page garners all these specific collaborations.

Another example can be ripped "like the pages you manage on facebook".

Erm...maybe it's a lot of work for nothing, lol.

YEAH? Yeah.....no....but I ain't the one doing it, lol.

This has been brought to our attention long ago... like, back in 2008. We are aware that there's no co-author system and of the trouble making the decision to who submits and who is just a word in the author's comments. The only thing I can tell you is to come to a consensus over who gets to submit the song and just deal with it for now; that's all that can be done in this stage.

With the redesign coming soon, we hope to solve this and other common problems in the Audio Portal, along with zero-voting and 'second chance bans' for those who first submit. This way, the forums will never be filled with these threads again :D

P.S.; STRONG MAN

Those who say create a new account, go blow a D. Flash artists don't have to create new accounts.

Sure, we could create a collab account, wait 4 months for the submission to get accepted, and NEVER collab with with each other again because we only wanted to do 1 or 2 songs.

And sure, we could "man up" and just decide whose profile to put it on. This isn't about which profile to put it on. I don't give a rats ass. Don't be dense, everyone else, San7a, and I OBVIOUSLY know that we can and have to do that at this point. However, we are looking to the future, where the stars are bright, and the Audio Portal finally stands with equality among it's asshole older sibling who always masturbates in its younger sibling's cereal, the dastardly Flash Portal.

We can only hope for a good design, where the god of Newgrounds god comes in through the clouds and lets loose a new era of peace and prosperity. Ho! He is coming in the clouds! And every knee shall bow! Every tongue shall confess!
