Dude Braidz seriously, I really have been working hard to get new people here. Some of you guys from Mark's tournament are checking the site, too, so that's awesome. But I'm not leaving NG, because this website is perfect for me aside from a few things.
Also, I don't rely on people browsing through the modern hip hop section to get listens. I do enough self-promotion to keep my listens up, I do a lot of networking with other sites, plus I think my music speaks for itself.
I want the mods to know I'm bringing up this issue more for other Newgrounders than for myself. My scores don't affect my listens too much (or maybe they do- who knows?), but it surely affects new people here and those who aren't really in to the promotion grind. And new users won't stick around for long if everything they submit gets inexplicably zeroed to oblivion in a matter of days. They don't understand what's going on and it may also be a confidence-killer. Think about it guys.
I'm done with this issue. Hopefully it gets resolved. I'm gonna still be on NG regardless, but I do believe this matter should be resolved for fairly obvious reasons.
