Those biases DO exist that I've chosen to stop entering. It's no one's fault specifically, but I just feel that this environment isn't suited for me.There are many contests here where, as you have said, Biases do exist... but that's because many of the contests on here are generated by its users on a volunteer basis. We aren't trained professionals or anything... Rest of stuff
Once again, I'm NOT blaming you or any of the judges for bad judgement... I do think that the song does need improvement... but at the same time (as I've explicitly stated before), I create song that are different and therefore leaves me at a great disadvantage. I've been at this site long enough to know that these kinds of biases exist towards certain genres, and so it's my choice to stop entering.
(This opinion comes from multiple contest, not just this one)
Even though I can't be sure what length you might go through to pick out unbiased judges, there will be people who are biased, and I can state that because of the transparency of the judgement process. When judges are able to make calls about songs without having their identity called into question, they're able to assert their biases without having to answer to the people that they made. You clearly are able to get away from this assertion because you told us your opinion on our song, but why should I trust the other judges?
And that's the choice I'm allowed to have by this judgement process.
But alas, all I was stating is that I'm done with competitions... It wasn't suppose to get out of hand like it has been, but I guess I should have been more careful with my comment (I'll admit it was pretty vague from other people's perspective).

there were to many submissions to review, that fatkid took the time to review what he did is seriously a really kind act.
Im a harsh guy on the internet so ill say this flat out: your submission clearly did not deserve to pass through.
Have a nice day.
Oh this is fun lol... I love people who do this...
Firstly... I could care less.
Secondly... I could say all your song deserve a 0, but seeing as though it's just an OPINION, it really doesn't matter what I think does it? (Goes along with my first point).
Thirdly (and this goes along with my main point)... who are you to say that my song deserve to pass or not? It's this kind of bias that makes upcoming artist feel as though they have no chance at this site, even though your opinion weighs as much as some random person ranting on a street somewhere in Antarctica... (I guess it still goes along with the first point).
Alright, I'm done... if anyone else wants to talk about this, just pm me and I'm willing to fight it out for months if I have to.
