How did he win quest for the crown
...lol, he didn't immediately upload it to youtube? I think that song is legitimate.

I am terrible at math shuddup.

Well okay I'm not going to lie

I read the instructions and it says must be submitted no earlier than the date....

I only made 3 songs ever and I made this recently and touched it up for the contest

but technicallyby what the NATA post said we're all in the clear so as long as the submission date is not before mar 19

i look through the whole youtube channel i think a lot of what wasnt post is okay i message him on skype during the contest and he told me he was working on one or two thing each day for NATA

I couldnt find evidence of the other contest I think you are right they are legitmate

That doesn't make logical sense, there's no problem with him having submitted something and then uploading it to youtube days later. Obviously he would have created it before the deadline, then didn't put it on youtube until later. There's no rule saying that he HAS to have uploaded a video of his composition only a few days after composing it, and neither of those are before the deadline, which is what would cause actual problems.

Oh gosh... For some reason I was thinking that the lengh limit for a track was 3 minutes...

It seems that all of my tracks are now invalid. Good luck other contestats, your stuff sounds better anyway. ;)

I think with him he has a rule where he HAS to ;DDDD

but in all seriousness burritos, that one is legit (mean that in both ways) stop trying to kick a man while he is down!

The point of the "submitted before" date is pretty obvious to everyone, right? A submission date is the only way for me to tell if the music was made before or after the contest began.

Working around this specifically to exploit the phrasing of the rules is dirty and low, and it's the reason I've had to create such strict and specific rules during the main tournament. People don't like it, but it seems the point has been made here today.

Yes, the music does have to be created after the contest began. No, you cannot remove your audio files from NewGrounds and resubmit them for this contest. No, you cannot post audio files under a new name which were made and posted to YouTube previous to this contest. This is a matter of integrity -- if you're going to go out of your way to exploit the phrasing of contest rules is not with the spirit of this community.

deadlyfishes, do you have any entries that you DID create after this contest began?
*(Also: You said that you would put the prize money toward your own contest, but honestly how could anyone here trust you with a contest after this?)

i hope that you dont take this the wrong way but he host contest on fl studio forum and reddit and prizes were very exspensive and real

he bought me some orchestral sample library while i was first learning digital performer and fruity loop

i might be bias or something but to go against your last point he is good for prizes and to be honest me and my friend submitted thinking that it had to be only uploaded by the date not specifically made before the rules were not very specific

sorry if this offend anyone

I was looking into the matter myself I found some stuff.

A friend of mine who was in contact with him said he was working on one or two tracks each day during the NATA contest. I do agree that some of the tracks that were made before should be disqualified, and has he did say himself that he was not going to submit everything and knew some were not allowed.

Anyways, through much research I have found a plenty handful of the tracks are legitimate and no where to be found.

The Christmas contest I found out that he made the old track more "christmas-y"

November NAC
Quest for the Crown
Dreams of Splendor

These other contests are all legitimate they all checkout fine. So those of you who come to think that there was no new material made, there was still a lot of great work and amazing effort put through...

Oh yeah, even one of the tracks that were "re-uploaded" all of them are different in someway.

The "Cakeland" one is different from the YouTube video, it's a totally different arrangement and more polished in the mixing. Props.

Okay, so before everyone gets on me about doing this, I really hated this guy for doing this, but looking into it, there is a lot of good here going on that everyone seems to be missing. I know myself personally I would be ultra competitive when it comes to this stuff and if I had a lot of insane tracks I would probably be doing the same thing.

To be honest I think it was a misunderstanding like my friend burritos said before. He probably saw this as a big opportunity to give it everything possible and take some risks.

That's my two cents and ALSO, vote for my track :DDDDDDD

I posted it earlier but why not

Hey.

Can we stop picking on him? NATA already disqualified him and people have made fun of him enough. His reputation in contests is ruined as far as I know.

Let's move on with our lives and leave the issue alone.

Also here are my submissions which I named to their corresponding emotion for your convenience
