There's no "amateur", and there's no "professional". It's just sound waves mixed together, no matter how they're mixed. I think scores just make people confuse even more, since any given value cannot mean the same thing when applied to another context. Back to our topic though, you could have at least tried to be more diplomatic, while giving some tips on how to improve a specific part of a track and being a little more helpful. That's your opinion, sure, but think about the consequences of your actions next time, instead of stomping people's efforts like you did for no reason.
THANK YOU, KKSLIDER. T_T Really, thank you so much. That comment was very timely, and I'd like to add on to what you've said, just to finish everything:
(prepare for wall of text)
Every participant there has had songs which have scores between a low 4 and a high 4. It doesn't matter what kind of experience each one has. It doesn't matter if they've had anything below that, because ultimately, it only goes to show that they have the potential for great things, if people have liked their work. So they go and take part in the CD project. Granted, some people will win, huzzah! They are good, and they deserve their kudos. ^_^ All their experience and their knowledge have paid off. But there are some people who will lose out, for one reason or another. That does not warrant a stock comment that they do not deserve any taste of victory.
The very fact that they took part suggests that they have a position of strength. We have to bear in mind that this CD project is a community project. BECAUSE this is a community project, we're all in this together. FatKid was kind to give us constructive criticism, no matter how nice or scathing it was, and he was right to do so. Because people need to know their position of strength to improve and build up on their skills.
Therefore, not only is claiming a song to be an outright 'train wreck' disrespectful, rude and ABSOLUTELY PRIGGISH, it also takes away from the spirit of the community project. Such behaviour shall not be dealt with. I tend to be careful with my criticism, but I will NOT, and I WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT, mince my words as far as behaviour is concerned. I have called you a prig, rightly because you behaved like a prig. And I will not recant those words until we see some better conduct on your part. I must love each user on Newgrounds, but in doing so, I must do the right thing, and that also includes 1) not being a doormat when one person insults everyone else, 2) admonishing someone who misbehaves.
There are winners and losers, but we are a team. We are Newgrounds. I'm sure FatKid and KKSlider, at the very least, will agree with me over the fact that support is needed from users, if they want to grow. We could disregard your pitiful comments if we needed to, but especially not for the Newgrounds CD, and especially not after the results have been released.
And if you think your feelings are hurt, bruv, you struck a really low blow calling people's works train wrecks. You're not the only one who has a sensitivity. Everyone else does. And that you have hurt mine only makes it an even lower blow. I'm not a bro, I'm a sis, thank you very much.
I rest my case.
On that note, thank you, FatKid, for making known this project to all of us. I enjoyed it very much. <3
