That account has been un-scouted and you can't vote on it currently. However you can still leave reviews.

do I have to scout the account to drop a 2 rating on it?

You can't scout an artist while he or she is banned.

Well, it's two accounts (TheEyeofMusik and RealMuzikProductions), so can't he just re-scout himself? I'm not too familiar with how that works really.

Both accounts are unscouted, so they can't scout each other. Another Q: Why does he come up when the approved artist filter is on? Or is it just me?

Wow, I have to say, I think it's awesome you guys dealt with this problem in the least dramatic most effective way. Time will tell if it's sufficient, but for serious. Dope moves.

Well that's what happens when the entire community pitches in their opinions and perspectives in a mature way, things get done and progress is had. To be honest the NG Moderation team is one of the best I've seen compared to most other communities, since in my opinion the pro's outweigh the cons.

I love you. That's a very nice thing to hear considering usually what we do is a completely thankless job.

Lol don't get me wrong, the mods probably get a worse rep than they deserve, but I think on this one the bulk of the thanks goes to Tom and Wade for listening to us and any mods who didn't brush this off as "bitching" or "whining".

If they're unscouted why are they still showing up in the approved artists charts? They take up the entire first page of modern hip-hop still and now we can't even vote on the tracks.

You'll have to understand that this wasn't the first time DJSes was brought up. As I explained earlier, the audio mods involved in the investigation were initially skeptical because of previous lack of proof.

However, be rest assured, in every reported incidence, audio mods worked closely with Wade, and/or Liljim & Tom in order to determine the best possible course of action.

Thank-you for your attention.

I'm just wondering, but how does the 2 accounts getting unscouted change anything? He's just gonna get his labelmates to scout him again. I'm so confused as to how this solves the problem.

We're trying different things to see what will work, please be patient as we work through this.

Seeing as that he's currently banned for copyright violations, he can't be scouted in the first place.

Er-hem, extra experience by reviewing?Then people could just write rubbish reviews to gain additional EXP. You can't expect every single person to write constructive reviews if they do it only for extra EXP. Of course, there are quite some good reviewers out there, but there are bound to be people who will abuse it; those who want to zero-bomb submissions with great power could just leave one-line reviews that aren't abusive and gain voting power like that.

Every single aspect of this site that deals with feedback has a could / should / would about it. Everything. Newgrounds has done a great job overhauling the review system for the audio portal over the years. The review guide lines were enforced and the rules became more clear, while maintaining a position of constructive criticism. No more "oh, I see you like fl studio" 2/5 reviews, for example.

With that said, I agree with the idea of exp for reviews. What if newgrounds organized a audio portal task force that moderated auto portal reviews? Mods can already delete reviews on audio portal submissions. Heck, even if there was no exp benefit to leaving reviews, I would love to help artists receive constructive reviews for songs they submitted, and cull out reviews that are against policy.

Leave a random artist a constructive review. You never know how that could help.

After unscouting him his tracks should have been removed from the listing. Obviously that hasn't worked, so there maybe a bug. We will look into it, but I can't say when that will happen. It's on the to-do list.

Umm. I don't see anything. I DO see submissions with abnormally low ratings, but where is this DJ ses and his contest? Has he been promptly dealt with already?
And hows he doing this? 50 alt accounts or what? Not even a 5 vote from me raised the score of anything very high.


I'm just a dreamer.

That essentially translates to the fact that I ended up having to remove them from the charts manually one by one.

-___________________________________________-

It was a combination of factors not necessarily including or excluding the possibility of vote manipulation that lead to us decide to un-scout DJSes.

Please note that he is not banned from submitting music onto his personal profile and you can still listen to and review his audio from there.

Furthermore, as a warning, do not take this as a license to direct any form of abuse towards his account or person. You are all expected to adhere to rules and regulations of this site, and violations will be dealt with accordingly.

Thank-you for your attention.

Thanks BrokenDeck, much appreciated! :D

Well, tonight I'm fishing for new music in the newly clean modern portal. I guess I could be out clubbing with my friends, or studying, or reading, or sleeping or writing but tonight's a special night.

Wade asked how I found out about Ses using proxies and stuff to cheat the site, and I just filled him in on our conversation from a few months ago.

Wow? another thread? Ya'll got too much time on ya hands man

and ya'll be snitching like THAT doe??
I could only image ya'll in real life..

Only reason why this was "less dramatic" is because I don't give a fuck and conquered newgrounds.com every way possible. Everything I wanted to accomplish when I first made an account in 05 has been accomplished. So I ain't got no worries. Only thing that's f*cked up is it's not fear to my fans.

The evidence to ban me was poor and seemed more personal than anything.

But, it's ok to fuck the black guy over I guess, the majority of ya'll racist on the low anyway. I'm out

There's a couple things that you said that confuse me:

1) you said you don't care (cos u already "conquered" NG). So why are posting you here? complaining? Pointing out your indifference? You are the second loudest apathetic person I've met. If you don't care, then don't show that you care.

2) idk how you can you can accuse the majority of being racist. Your evidence for this "was poor and seemed more personal than anything". You seemed to be the most racially conscience on this this thread and I think your just fishing for sympathy (or trying to make others feel guilty). If you are proud of your achievements, then don't show insecurity.

Ses, when I imagine you in real life I don't see a conqueror or a super-successful artist. I see a teary-eyed man who pushed too far and can't face the consequences. Your reply to this thread was unnecessary, motivated by some hurt you're trying to hide and I suggest you just stop now.
