The Audio Forum Lounge Jun. 7th, 2005 @ 04:12 PM

Hello!

Welcome to the Audio Forum Lounge. This thread will hopefully become a gathering place for NG's audio artists to chill out and chat; to get to know each other on a more personal level, and to strengthen the musical community on Newgrounds.

In some ways, this thread will be similar to a club/crew. Although there will be no membership lists, I'm going to lay down a few basic rules for posting in here.

1) If you're new to music, do yourself (and us) a favour by reading the stickied audio help. It contains some information about the audio side of NG, along with a bunch of useful links to resource topics.

2) This lounge is primarily for the discussion of non-audio related stuff; the Audio Forum already has plenty of topics discussing audio. If you want to debate the technicalities of ACID, or need help with Fruity Loops, take it elsewhere.

3) Although rambling and ranting will be allowed and even encouraged, spamming will not be tolerated; as with any other part of the BBS, there are rules that must be obeyed. Flagrant disregard of these rules will be rewarded with post deletion and possibly a ban.

Most of you guys have enough common-sense to know what to do and what not to do, so I'll take off my 'responsible' hat now, and wish you a warm welcome to the lounge. Bung the kettle on...

Hrmmm I suppose it does - ah well I've never met anyone that didnt like my retardedness so I guess its a good thing!

I think a lot more people should learn to loosen up more. If you're serious all the time then when do you have time for fun?

I cant be serious for like more than 5 minutes - I suddenly just burst out laughing...

I laugh a lot.

Sorry Crono I laugh a lot more than you I laugh like I can't control it

I laughed at my grandfather's funeareal

I laughed in the principal's face

I laugh when im just sitting in class doing nothing.

Ah the good times I even laughed at my old uncle's when he got back from the hospital he was feeling bad and I laughed right at him they all hate me now.

But when I laugh it usaly has nothing to do with the things thats happening it's usally when Im nervous or bored I think up something funny.

Ah the best is when someone is screaming at you and your laughing.
or when someone thinks your lying but your not and they don't belive you ebcuase your laughing.

I think im getting carried away here but I think when people laugh a lot is because they have good teeth like me.

Wellllllll.... it would be nice if the 80% of the lounge didn't consist of conversation between you two... but I'm going to be more laid back about it in here. I found it annoying in the Guidelines thread, because I'd like James to see the suggestion about sticky/rules icons, and I know for a fact that he doesn't like having to trawl through a bunch of irrelevant posts when he hits the forums - he doesn't have the time to spare for that (thus the deletion of a good quantity of irrelevant/repetitive posts in the Evolution thread in Wi/Ht).

While it's nice to see you two chatting away and therefore making the Audio forum more active, I just think you could possibly exercise a little more restraint in some situations; if you really want to hold a chatty conversation about something, Instant Messengers might be a better option.

I dunno. I've been accused of being a strict mod a couple of times recently, and I don't really want to head that way; but then again, if some users are spoiling the BBS for other users (this is not a reference to you, just to some of the people I've banned), then it's my job to stamp on them as effectively as possible. In your case, I guess I'm just offering a mild warning to tone it down a little.... erm.... yes.

I'm always open to comments and feedback.

Haha, I wish. No, mods don't get paid for any part of their NG work (unless you're Afro_Ninja winning $250 in the monthly awards for NG SIM =) We just put up with this shit for free =D

I knew the competition was too stiff in May. The standard of Flash on NG has risen drastically over the past few months. I don't resent Afro at all, I liked his game, and it appealed to a wider audience than mine, which is one of the skills required when making Flash. I'm a little annoyed that I didn't get a weekly award or a top 50 spot with the game, considering the length of time I spent making it; but that's just the way it goes. Disappointing, but not the end of the world...

In response to piepie's question - this is what a kender is:

im not gonna paste the whole thing in here and annoy people - lets just say that I am a lot like one.

menu is on the right - a very unhealthy amount on the race that is kender.

(kender is a play on the german work "kinder" which means "children")

And yes I just happen to work part time till I go back to school in september (university, or college.. whichever..) so Im on my computer a lot - and when I'm not maknig songs im browsing the net and chattering on newgrounds.

As for my occasional immaturity - thats just the way I am. I'm 21 and I'll still be this way when I'm 40.

now denvish - what do you do for a living? Since you're not making money working for newgrounds what does the allmighty mod do? Diaper factory? Microsoft hacker? Richard simmons stalker? The possibilities are endless...

I dont think you're strict - as piepie quoted we think certain OTHER mods are strict - but we dont mention their names.

Also me and piepie are usu the only ones ON here during the day... without us there would just be numerous posts askin how to make audio and why newgrounds wont accept my audio blah blah blah.

We're here to add the tolerable amount of excitement that doesnt involve boring logical questions.

ok I think I'm done for now.

Unemployed, thank god. In the past I have been:

A petrol station attendant (first job)
Piece-rate fruit & veg picker (and fucking quick, too)
Worker in a plastics reclamation factory (Ouch ears & hands)
Farmer (grew up on my parents')
Student (2:1 in Archaeology & Environmental Studies)
Chef (7 years, never enjoyed it though)
Worker in trouser-pressing factory (in Wales)
Stable builder (nobody wants a stable in summer, so wet & cold)
Mushroom farmer (did my back in)
Busker (occasionally)
Band member (hahaha)
7.5t truck driver (most recent official job)
Web designer (unpaid)
Graphic designer (unpaid)
VB coder (unpaid)

and currently I'm a full time dad of 3, a mod on Newgrounds, and a Flash artist.

I'm too much into computers since I got one about 5 years ago, but I'm very good with a wide variety of computer skills; and that's what I'd like a job doing. I'd loved to be paid by a company to sit at home and make Flashes, but unfortunately my self-promotion skills are lacking. Fortunately, my skills at blagging the DHSS are impressive, so the government technically pays me to sit at home and make Flashes, for my own amusement =)

Jobseeker's allowance+child tax+child benefit+housing benefit+council tax benefit = more than I could earn in most jobs I could walk into.

Hey all...

Anyone out there a serious musician - is a label your brass ring or is this all just a hobby?

For me it's mostly just a hobby although technically I do get paid occasionally for it...
I really REALLY wnted to be a rock star when I was a kid - or James Bond - one of the two but I got swept down a different route I guess...

Well, since I don't get to hang out or talk with Denvish much anymore, hopefully this will be a place where I can get reaquainted with an old friend.

Much <3 Devish. I've always envied you for numerous reasons.

I see.

Now since your a mod and your probelly helping out, what are some more changes for the AP or is it a secret or is there nothing left to upgrade it??

On an other note every since the changes have been made there is a lot more activity here in the AP section of the BBS.

Myself and other people have been throwing suggestions at liljim, but he plays his cards very close to his chest, so I don't have a clue I'm afraid. Personally I'd like to see a new voting system on the AP, maybe make it more like the Flash Portal, but as James said, the AP currently only responsible for 0.03% of NG traffic, so I can understand why it isn't high on the priority list.

The thing is, that people tend to forget the fact that the AP is there primarily for Flash authors. It's not designed to be a showcase area for artists, like the Flash portal is. Maybe that'll change in time, and it will become one of the web's prime resources for audio loops, but that's not really what Newgrounds is about. The Flash Portal is the lifeblood of NG, it's what the site was built upon. The AP is merely a resource for Flashers, so people shouldn't expect it to become any more than that, although I hope it will...
