Can you make a list of people on the whitelist and change it every time RobTop approves of someone?

(edit) Worded things better.
Like with people? I think whitelisting people is too similar to the process we have right now, if you replace "whitelist" with "scouting." It would probably be better to just make a list of songs, like they're doing already.

Im actually happy for thiz, thanks Tom!

So one quick question: are you saying that only the popular artists here will be used (if they had not checked off the GD api thing) and not lower artists (like me) or is it just a time thing?

you need to be approved by Robtop, on Rob's artist whitelist so you can use your songs in gd. It might take a while to be whitelisted but that's only if your music is 100% Original or inspired just not a carbon copy of another song.

It's a sign-up date thing, as far as I understand it. If you've already made music used in GD, you're probably on the whitelist. If you haven't it's all up to luck and popularity now.

I agree with everything here but one small thing: the verification process.

I am a GD player more than a Newgrounds user, and so I can tell that hearing the same overused songs over and over and over and over and over again is pretty annoying. So if only the popular artists are able to get their music to GD, that would mean having even less unknown yet great songs that we would be able to use. I think that a song that's unknown is always fun to listen to and to play/create to.

So I'm asking you if you would take the time to look at more unknown artists and verify them aswell. (Here's an idea: look through the "scouted" people list (if there is one lol) and check if they are good enough to get verified)

Sorry for any mistakes, but I have an excuse: I'm French

Hi, I'm ChoonieLaster, writer of the Boom novel. I also made my post about this situation, and it's not the composers' fault. It's their own fault, and recently, my solution is just getting started on being a viral thing.
But at the same time, this is a good tool for people who seriously want to use the track (but as long as they didn't steal it), even though I'm not yet scouted.

You can no longer create an NG account, upload a song, get scouted and use your song in Geometry Dash.

Existing artists are still ok to use. Moving forward, only the occasional popular & verified artist will be added to the mix.

Please do not upload music you did not create to Newgrounds. There is no one here who can help you get it into GD.

When these changes roll out, I think we need to update that GD banner. ;) Could always translate it into Spanish between @LexaHergon and/or myself, and perhaps code that Spanish to display for those in Spanish-speaking majority countries. GD is huge in South America.

Very pleased with the update. Should have been much sooner, but hopefully should make my Audio Flagging Guide virtually obsolete, as well as some of my other GD abuse related guides. Now all we'll have to worry about is people uploading stuff to try and hack around the API fixes on older scouted accounts and/or not getting with the program because they don't read. Either way, now the artists are no longer being taken for a ride, GD theft is going to be nigh impossible; things can start returning to normal -- plus a couple more awesome features.


The simplest solution is either right, or dumb af.

You ruined the Geometry Dash community Newgrounds. Everyone hates you for what you did. Now we want it back. SO ITS NOW OR NEVER... People will stop using newgrounds because they dont have gd for their songs. Newgrounds will lose all hope, and will be done for, bare as crap. So bring it back.

Hate to break it to you pal, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Heck, some of the GD community have volunteered part of their time to help keep the audio portal clean. So if anything, it's actually strengthed the ties that bind. Newgrounds will continue to flourish, just as your community will.

I was making music for this game... i-i, i always was very happy when someone used my song in his level... but now... nobody can use it... even me.

But uh... i understand, that it was annoying when someone uploaded song that he didn't make to newgrounds.

Well, let's just say that Steam removed GD from the store, and Google and Apple wants to do the same thing. But, WHY? Only for this sh*t?! Literally, I just would like to contact NewGrounds and say that this all is sh*t. They can't ban a game only becouse the players of GD used the NG songs. We need to do something, a such great game can't be banned for a stupid thing like this. And, all the people that support NG and not GD, well let's just say you probably have never played GD and don't even know what a great community it has. Now people only thinks "GD is a rage game". Why? Becouse people HAVEN'T PLAYED THE GAME, AND HEARED FROM SOMEONE ELSE THAT IT'S A RAGE GAME. You even rage at Stereo Madness? What the fu*k? Why won't you TRY the game first instead of saying sh*t about it. The game has now the biggest update that's the 2.1, and you banned the game? Are you fuc*ing dumb? Why banning a game only for this sh*t?! Well, I think you get it. GD is a great game, try it before judging. NG has no reason to ban this game.

Would you feel better if I told you that the steam version of GD will be back? And that the ban itself is not permanent.

Dammit, I've been honing my production skills in hopes of being able to upload one of my songs and use it in GD but I guess I can't do that now HAH. Props to the NG team for giving artists more control over their content, though. The GD whitelisting system does sound like a pain in the ass, but that's on Rob, not Newgrounds. It's a shame it had to come to this, but it only takes a few asshats to ruin it for everyone else... :/

You can always try a search engine approach to this. Just like how you search up music here on Newgrounds you can have that allowed on Geometry Dash. There could be an Internet connection to the Newgrounds website, players can search artists, if it has an original Newgrounds label on it, then they can pick from it. If the song isn't original content from artists, then players are asked to choose something else.
