That lying poop. =(

Just curious... the person that said they'd scout you, have they been scouted for the Audio Portal?

Because if they haven't been scouted, they can't scout others, only recommend them.

Will the profile of scouted audio artists say who scouted them, just like for art artists?

As far as I know, only mods can see who scouted who... at least for now. No idea if this is going to change or not.

If you were approved before the scouting system was put into place, the person that approved you will count as your scouter.

I was scouted by A-Bot <3

Where does it say who you scouted and who scouted you?

Oh well, thanks Wade!

Only mods can see it.

How long does it generally take to get scouted? The system seems like it's going to be terribly inefficient. Does everyone show up on the list? I just joined today and uploaded a song so I know it might take a bit, I'm just curious.

Houston, we have a problem!

I saw those guys like a week ago. Is the Scouting system dropped?

You can't see unscouted artists because you yourself are not scouted.

He's really not on it. The system is not running, for sure. I can confirm this.

Time for a friendly inquiry/criticism/rant. The "recommended artists" list as it now stands is:

- a user with 13 recommendations, whose latest submission has 3 individual people claiming to have scouted him
- a user with 6 recommendations whose only submission is a timestretched vocal sample
- a hip hop person, all of the submissions are collabs with sketchy descriptions
- a person who has been credited on a popular submission from 2011
- someone who only uses only garageband loops
- dubstep
- a voice actor (that I scouted)
- dubstep from a troll account
- dubstep
- chiptune from a troll account

so as many people have mentioned, a report button would help prevent these from staying on the top until some dumbass scouts the garageband loop person or the troll accounts for example. I know who the audio mods are so I can just skype them or PM them of course, but I'm just not dedicated enough to do that each time, sorry.

And many of these have submissions from several months ago. Like this guy on the top of the "total submissions list" has submissions from 2007 all the way to 2011, but nothing after that. Were they banned earlier? Should I scout them if I can't find anything wrong with them or should I just not bother? The whole system is buggy and erratic as hell from my experience with it, so I don't know.

Another thing:

If a user is credited on a submission and they are not scouted, but the person that submitted the audio is scouted, the vote bar will not show up because of the person that isn't scouted, and that's really annoying.

An example would be this

  • CLAB - Flip P vs TehSlap
    CLAB - Flip P vs TehSlap by BigRed

    CLABTRAP Competition 2012 - Flip Point vs TehSlapHappy

    Score
    3.74 / 5.00
    Type
    Song
    Genre
    Hip Hop - Olskool
    Popularity
    979 Views

Seems really.. wrong.

Hi there. I myself have just joined newgrounds a few days ago and published my own audio 2 days ago. I am still unscouted for now, but even then my audio did not show up when I look at the list of audio submissions by unscouted artists. Is there a problem with the system concerning audio submissions by unscouted artists such as myself? If yes, then how are we supposed to get scouted then?

Both this
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/browse/sort/date/artists/uns couted

and this won't show much further update
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/member/unscouted_list/recomm ended-by-users

But look like this works
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/member/unscouted_list/recent ly-submitted

I just have the fear of scouting the wrong people. I went further down and found like a ton of them use loops, vocals or MIDI rips. They are gonna be there until the end of NG, so no one will check them out. The submission's dates are quirky too. You get some people submitted stuff back in 2011. Were they got banned?

I am gonna stop to scout people because I won't take the risks of dipping my toe into the thing I don't have clear information on.

I can assure that this list is well and truly broken. I can see from my other (verified) account . I submitted a track on the 29th of September '12 and didn't even show up on first page of this list. I was pushed way back to page 5. Newgrounds claims that I uploaded that track on "11/30/-1" which makes no sense at all.NG also claims that all submissions that have glitched out in the same fashion have been recommended by atleast 1 user, no less.

http://diascr.info/i/3d813.png

I've had no verification message about being scouted, so it's definitely broken.

If last December was before the system was introduced, then this was probably how I was scouted. ^^

Guys, this thread is not for begging to be scouted. If you want to be scouted, make good music, be active in the community, and make use of the threads linked below:

Hey guys!

I submitted my demo reel in the "Voice Acting" category earlier this month and it's still not displayed on the audio portal. I was scouted by someone who was kind enough to do so, but is it a requirement to be scouted multiple times before your eligible for listing?

Thank you to anyone in advance who can help me.

Okay, I've had my stuff up on there now for ages, and no one (as far as I know) has scouted me, but my friend said he has; but it hasn't given me any prompt to confirm it; so I remain unscouted....
