ok I should probably explain requesting judging..
we have 2 permenant judges - and we only ever have FOUR judges.
Which means there is only ever ONE "guest" judge spot
criteria for judging:
1) must be over 16 (we discussed this already)
2) must have been making music for quite some time - realmguys and evildog have both been making music for id say at LEAST 8 years.. I realize not everyone here can tote that much experience but a good amunt of years behind you is a plus.
3) I have to have heard of you - thus no signing up that day and asking to judge - I need a trust factor - me evil-dog and realmguys have known each other a long time - and we don't just know OF each other - we all talk to each other on a regular basis.
4) same with me and brokendeck - we talk on a regular basis off-site.
you know I have a chat room - it's in my sig - if you want to get to know me - hang out and talk to me a bit, and I'll be able to judge what kinda person you are.
last month ryeguyhead was the stand-in judge - ive known him since I started making music - so he was a shoe-in.
the month before that it was sequenced - I've known him for a good many years - so he was in.
the month before that it was brokendeck - or he may have been before sqeuenced I cant remember - we didn't have any screening judging going on that munch so I let him judge.
the month before that it was milkman dan.. I've known him a few years and I know he is a worthy and prominant musician.
see the pattern?
if you can't fulfill these options then I'm sorry but you are not eligible for judging - in order to keep that whole "tight knit family" and feeling that I can rely on my judges through thickand thin - these contests will fail.
Or I will have to drop judges - you've all seen it in the other contests - judges not submitting things on time.
So yeah.. sorry. I've had to turn down 3 people so far - 1 was too young, the other I had never heard of, and the third couldnt commit to being reliable for the contest.
