Aw, alright :(. *rubs you off from my list of 32 choices*

You read my mind -- also, for comparison's sake, last year there were 110 auditions.

Using Kirbyfemur's count on page 7... 182.

Oh and last year there was 111 auditions, not 110, silly :3.

Yeah man, like the others said, that won't be easy. A feasible solution is to split the competition into two groups of 32 like we did in the 2009 NGADM and then pit the winners of each group against each other at the end. This would work if we had at least one other organiser and six other judges taking care of the other group (since - sorry to disappoint - we're actually not superhuman alien cyborg things, haha) but we don't have that.

But like I said, if there's anyone here who doesn't make it in and has enough initiative, feel free to set up a separate NGADM for the people who didn't make it in. It was a success last year, and this year it's a lot harder to get in with almost 200 auditions so it could be even more successful this time round.

Sort of a loser's bracket? if that's the case, then I wouldn't mind setting this up under the conditions that the winner of that bracket be able to face off against the winner of this bracket as redemption.

Will I need to find 6 judges tho?

That's explained on the first page:

At 7/1/12 05:31 AM, Echo wrote: Why do only 32 people make it in?

Because we're not superhuman alien cyborg things that can handle 64 (or 128) competitors at a go (and because 32 is a nice safe round number :3).
Think of all the reviews they would have to write! In order to do what you're suggesting, they would need more judges.

Yeah, I read that and I understand. The answer is simply getting more judges. Come on, NG is -huge-. Surely, some people wouldn't mind offering themselves for a once-a-year event that is slowly gaining more and more recognition. You gotta adapt to change and think big.

Damn it! So that's why i am not able to find their old posts and remove the track they posted.... So there probably will be 3-4 tracks on my list that aren't even there anymore lol

And here I was thinking we might not reach as much auditions as we reached last year.

Think we can get it to 200 till the deadline? Remember, you guys have till the end of the 28th in NG time, which is roughly another 27 hours from now.

Yes. Covers are OK for auditions. They're just not OK for the main competition.

The NG audio system ruined a bit of the quality, thats why I give the link to youtube to.. But if you want to keep it fair you can also judge the NG link.
