I get it bro, but this is suppose to be a normal & simple remix contest for fun & prices.
and after some people made fun of it & began joking about trading games to eachother... I feel disrespected & I dont have the mode for joking anymore, you know what I mean!
I hear ya man, but you aren't a regular yet. No offense, but you can't expect to walk in here and say "remix MY music, it's a contest!" and expect people to bend over backwards to join in... we are all musicians/composers/producers, and quite frankly, none of us care about your music (or anyone other than our own and those we greatly admire) enough to really be perked by a contest with rewards that are not the standard.
In addition, remix contests are generally run by artists who have years of industry experience under their belts and want to generate even more public interest and/or give back to struggling artists. You are new around here and have only been producing for a year by the looks of your Youtube upload dates (my apologies if you have been for longer), so expect folks to be either dismissive or skeptical when you do anything where your work is being posted in the forums (some folks can get really crazy about the 'no self-advertising in the audio forum' rule), it's just how life is. I dunno, stick around through a few NACs/RACs/MACs/whatever else, join the skype chat, post in the forums, and people will at least be respectful when you show you are interested in bringing your music, your time, and your personality to this community. I'm sure you'll find some people to join in your contest now, but if you are looking for a big turnout, consider my tips above.
Regardless, good luck with your contest man. I would enter, but unless you like Orchestral arrangements, I'd likely disappoint. :P
