People have been messaging me, but in the future, please post ALL questions in this thread, that way the answers can be public to everyone. Someone asked if you can submit this anywhere besides newgrounds. The answer is: During the contest, no. Now AFTER the results of the contest, you can, but we would ask if you would please so kindly link to the Bandcamp album after it is released so you can tell people what you made the song for involving this contest. As mentioned, I will post the winning songs over a period of time to my youtube channel (giving credit) and link back to your pages (including the artists as well) so people can check you out :)

Also, I urge people to please check the spaces in the art links before they submit in the submission thread, or they'll be broken links, and please only post discussion-related things like "i'm going to participate" in this thread. Also, please read everything in the other post before you ask questions that may be already answered.

Sorry if I sound like a hard ass here x_x, I don't wish to alienate or spark anger. I hope this has been helpful and informative about the contest.

To avoid confusion, i said the thing about discussion-related stuff in this thread because people were just posting things in the submission thread that should've been posted here instead.

What's this contest about? Can I submit an old song? What if I want to remix skrillex? Can I hire someone to make my entry?

Man, I need to get out of character for this.

*Activate fake asshole mode*

Why yes, dear citizen of the Newgrounds community! *sips tea and shifts monocle* You can submit copyrighted material that isn't yours, even remix the classics, or even hire someone to do all the work for you, because that's what the music of this day and age is all about! -_- dear lord the music industry today.

*Fake asshole mode deactivated*

In all seriousness, not to sound like an jerk there people, just having fun with Purgy there. I do wish to be helpful and insightful to you guys, let's have fun with this! I do respect you guys.

Sorry, guys. This contest is already over. I have stepped into the arena and I am a mighty man. Even paragroinx9 bows before me, so maybe you all will go ahead and forfeit and let me win yes?

I think the mods may have to look at Deshiel's entry. I was under the impression that the art was to be of another artist, not themselves.

Well technically it isn't against the rules, but I don't really like the idea myself. I was hoping people would ask other artists, but hey it's not in the rules so technically it's ok.

Hmm...looking over the rules again though...technically it DOES say, "Ask an artist". And since he didnt...i guess that does kind've violate the rules since it goes against how the contest works. Sorry Deshiel.

Sorry Dude, I was thinking best to get this out in the open now, instead of the judges realizing last minute then you getting disqualified.

Is it just me or does anyone else feel like there's a dipstick in the contest down-voting everyone daily? 'Lest they forget, this is a contest where the results are "Judged" not accounted for by score. This isn't a "high-score wins contest".

I can't help but notice a lot of really awesome tracks by some other participants are in the 3.7's and 4.0's which to me is retarded.
