I will still allow people to join, but I think we are ready to really start working on this album.

Now for the official rules:

1. Absolutely no remixes of any kind
2. All your music must be original
3. You will be allowed to post this music on the internet, however you must disable all downloads
4. Each track must be a minimum of 2:00.
5. Refrain from using any loops from sample packs (I.E., construction kits)
6. We will accept any genre
7. Absolutely no profanity or adult themes
8. If you use sound FX, make sure it is completely legal and royalty free for commercial purposes
9. If you cannot create original material for this album due to personal reason, you may submit a track that you have already released (just make the downloads are disabled)
10. HAVE FUN! :)

FAQS:

Q: Why can't I enable downloads for my song?
A: Good question! We want to make sure that people actually buy the album. After all, this is for charity! If your song is the only song they want from the album and they are able to get it for free, odds are they will not download. However, if you feel like this is unfair we can all take a vote on it.

Q: Can I submit a track I have already released?
A: Sure you can! Just make sure all downloads are disabled.

Q: Will I make any money from this?
A: Sadly, you will not. Our goal is to donate our time for charity. We want to raise as much money as we possibly can so we can help the Child's Play organization as much as we possibly can. However, this will look really good on your portfolio!

Q: Where will you be selling the album?
A: I plan on using PledgeMusic.com. I have already got in contact with them and they like the idea.

Q: This isn't a scam, is it?
A: Of course not! The Child's Play organization (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/) is a legit charity. If you're familar with The Humble Bundle, you'll know who this charity is!

Q: What rewards will we be offering?
A: Good question. I planned on asking the entire group for suggestions.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask them!

As of right now, the due date isNovember 25th, 2013. If you feel like that is not enough time, please let me know. Hopefully we still start this campaign sometime around Christmas time to give the charity a nice Christmas gift. I want to raise between $5,000 and $10,000.

If joining is still an option I would be glad to do it. I've done a few charity albums in the past. I'm always up for a good cause.

I've got a load of stuff down, and a lot of unfinished draft tracks of various genres that I'm thinking of finishing up for this project, but I'd like to be coherent with what all of yall are doing (not to copy, just to compliment). What's everyone thinking for their tracks?

Honestly, I'm making this album as diverse as possible to attract audiences from all genres of music. I can send you what we currently have so you can get a better idea.

If you want people to advertise this for you, then you can always ask the composers to do it :). We all have fans who like our type of genres.

Hiya! Sorry I haven't said much - I have been working on music for a couple video games!

We currently have 17 tracks on this album. Right now we are waiting for our graphics artist to finish our album art. We should hopefully be ready to release by December.

Hi guys! So I would like to apologize for not replying to everyone's questions and submissions. This is my very first time managing something like this and I can admit I have done a horrible job. The next album we work on I promise I will be more organized.

Thank you so much for all the hope you have given me these few months. If it weren't for all of you we wouldn't even have an album! Sadly, due to time restraints, some of our artists had to back out of the project. We are no longer accepting any submissions also. Again I would like to apologize for anyone who did submit something and they were not able to join. I kept a list of everyone that did submit work to me and I will contact them when I start working on album two.

Here is the official track list of our album, The Warp Zone:

- Track 01: EliteFerrex - 8-bit Desperation
- Track 02: DjjD - Macrocosm
- Track 03: Daydream Anatomy - Jet Lag
- Track 04: Kid2Will - Broken by Rain

- Track 06: Zambi - Toothpaste
- Track 07: Cherni - Clash at World's End
- Track 08: PirateCrab - Paradoxia
- Track 09: Ayotom - Year In Review
- Track 10: Crimsonskies455 - Dancing with Shadows

- Track 13: The Fierce Pixel - Reiko
- Track 14: Joseph Zieja (XPRTNovice) - Walking Into Random Houses
- Track 15: Mihai Sorohan - Quick To The Elfmobile
- Track 16: Matthew Pablo - Dream Raid (Full - Live Orchestra)
- Track 17: DjjD - Hazeful Judgment
- Track 18: zircon - Dawn Oblique ft. Jeff Ball
- Track 19: Daydream Anatomy - Hyper Joy
- Track 20: Ayotom - Fly Away

If you were originally a part of the list I released a few months back and you do not see your track in here please let me know so I can fix that.

Merry Christmas all. :)
