Nothing and no one on Newgrounds will be able to help you get your music used in Geometry Dash. As Tom Fulp noted earlier in the thread, unless there is popular demand for the artist, it will be very rare for new artists to be added to the whitelist of artists with usable songs in Geometry Dash.

Umm, is this aight? i just played GD the day before yesterday and today, i attempted to look for music specificly for GD with permission. i had "no idea" what a quarter of everthing ment (the last part). so i cant borrow (with permission) music from (awesome) audio artists? that'd be a TEENSY bit sad cuz i actually will not steal. what *&^&(#E@ would do that?! (actually, that was kinda obvious)

^ This.
I mean, this could have been handled in a way that wouldn't result in thousands of 12 year olds shitting themselves online and playing the victim and then attacking the site to defend Rob who's originally from this said site.

I'm not one to do this, but say someone is a gd player and wants to make their own audio for their levels, but their work is 100% original?

Up until this week that was doable and totally fine. However due to the amount of people who didn't follow the rules, the chances of getting your own original music into GD is now gonna be pretty slim.

Um...I'm bad at English so I can't understand everything, does this means I have to be a supporter if I want to allow people use my music in geometry dash? I guess that checkboxes are only for supporters...

imagine being the first thing that's troublesome enough to warrant a site change around it

Thanks Tom for the clear and easy to understand summary. For someone like me who does not know GD it was hard to depict what actually was the problem. Hope, this fixes the stolen-content-upload-debacle in the near future!


You find Let's Plays in German of some Flash games here on Newgrounds on my YouTube channel

nope, only approved artists up to the point that GD was removed, and the whitelist change implemented. this means neither supporter or user could not use their music for GD that signed up AFTER GD was pulled, and submitting music then .

So does this mean that I can't use a song that I make in my GD levels?

So no, seeing as your account was created today, unfortunately you didn't make the deadline :(

I like this move! Personally, I always appreciate when one of my songs is used in Geometry Dash, but I know of plenty of people on this site who would rather never be featured in the game. Thanks for taking the steps to counteract the problem without being rid of Newgrounds audio support for Geometry Dash altogether.

I agree to the measure Robtop and NG took. ''Empathically'', I realize the discontent many artists must have, so it was time to find a solution to this problem.
But I have one question, which is: in the part that Tom Fulp says ''You can no longer create an NG account, upload a song, get scouted and use your song in Geometry Dash.'', it means litteraly I can't directly create an account? Or means that I can't just use a song in Geometry Dash?
P.D.: I'm spanish speaker, so maybe I just couldn't understand the concept and my question would have been unintelligible and a mistake on my part.
Thanks for reading, greetings! ┴┬┴┤( ͡° ͜ʖ├┬┴┬

It's good to know when certain sentence structures might not translate well - it means you can still create an account and get scouted, but that won't be enough to have your song used in Geometry Dash.

What the hell. The whole reason I even started making songs was for Geometry Dash, and I get scouted a few days after this comes out? Now because I'm not popular yet, I can't use my own songs? Look, I'm not stealing anything- Everything I have uploaded is original. This doesn't seem like a good solution, because people like me who missed the chance by a DAY and who also worked to have songs in Geometry Dash get screwed over. There has to be a better fix than this.

Okay, I know I sound like a little kid, but I think that this is puling a Youtube move to try and screw new users from getting anywhere in games LIKE geometry Dash. (Sorry, I needed to double-edit so this is posted twice.

I was hoping on being able to use a song that I made in a level
but nobody knows who I am
RobTop would never consider me
