That is a very bad idea. You cant force someone to review.

No you can't, but you can offer some incentives, like experience points!

How about every user gets access to his/hers OWN playlist, wich is based of what songs you put in a favourite audio list, wich is part of the profile?! That way you can show fav. audios in the profile as well...

A little tiny "stream" box should appear on the list so that users can simply click the box on the list and have the ability to hear what the song is all about without having to go into the users audiopage. If they feel like the song is worthy of a download and review, they'll go at it! I for one don't want to bother going into every page on the list to hear the track and then decide to review or not, having the choice of hearing before jumping to another link would be a great way to allow authors as well as listeners to try out new genres without having to go out of their way to get it.

I put this in another thread, but I think that one each genre page, a randomly selected song with a "now playing - xxxxxxxx" thing would be pretty good. It might expose some of the lesser-known artists, too. Everybody knows PX9 because of the front page thing, so I think that would work for other people too.

I say, becuase of the damages to the citizens of newgrounds audio portal, we ask that the voting counter should be taken down, and that songs only be rated by the ammount of downloads and reviews.

(No Voting=No noobie 0 voters)

they should have voting power based on how long you've been a submitter. but it shouldn't be as high. the scale should be like this

1.00 - standard vote for AP
between 0 and 5 submissions ,+1%
5-10, +2%
10-20, +5%
30-50, +8%
50+, +10%

that way, they aren't that much bigger. and they should make it so that IP addresses can DL a song max of 3 times a day, so then that way, no one can spam. They should have a set of judges pick their weekly favorites and weekly turds as well.

for every gold +0.5%
for every platinum +1%
for every 2x Platinum +2%
for every diamond +5%
max of +50%

and maybe reviews too.
for every 100 you have, you get +1% with a max of 5%

this way, the people who do well get a bit extra, but not enough to damage the AP. they should also make it so that if you vote, you have to listen a set amount of it first, in order to stop spammers.
I think its pretty fair. the max is 1.65 voting power, which isnt even that much of an increase, but enough to have the AP artists have a little say in the AP.

Everyone could agree on that I'm sure, I always thought there should be an IP tracker for downloading songs, so that people don't cheat their gold. But for ISPs such as mine, more than one person has the same IP due to a proxy on the ISP side. I have satellite and sometimes I'm not allowed on an IRC chat because of the fact that someone else is already on with the same IP as me. That may be why they don't do that.

I would like it if you can fix stuff in your discription on your song and the tytle. Also, there should be a thing under the number of downloads you have, that is like having 100/ 150 listens in total of today. You know what I mean?

I dont really like the vote 5-0 thing, so maybe the number of reviews you get, the higher you would be in the audio page. Also, maybe there should be a top 1 thing for every genre. For example. (something) - (song). on the top 1 of the genre in a seperate box. I think that would be a GREAT Idea cuase its kinda hard to get into the top 5 every week =C

Well, those are my ideas!

I don't mean to advertise or anything, but one thing I like about Mp3Unsigned.com is the ability to see what artists recommend you, and who you recommend. If you go here: http://www.mp3unsigned.com/Showband.asp?id=28 3 and scroll too the bottom, you can see what I mean. A feature like that would be really cool.

You should be allowed to submit songs larger than 4000 kb since the Audio Portal is mainly occupied by music artists, and they don´t like loops, they want the full stuff!
So it´s damn annoying when I FUCKING CAN´T SUBMIT STUFF WITHOUT MANIACLY LOWERING THE QUALITY AND SHORTENING IT TO THE LIMITS INCLUDED PROGRAMS STUPID AS FUCK .

Loops are for n00bs.

I got one good little change for the Audio portal. How about if you can order your song by

Name
Rating
Date
Genre

AND Downloads? Ordering them by downloads would be great in my opinion

I think that you should even make a feature that makes it so a music needs at least 3 votings or reviews to have a real score cuz if a no point music gets only one vote and the guy put a 5 for nothing and that a way better song gets like 100 votes of 5 and one vote of 9 it will automaticaly be lower than the no point lost in the middle of nowhere music.

Got something for you.

HADOCTRL-CCTRL-V!

Better even than having loops on your page, would be a block o' text at the top of your audio page, say around 2000 or so max characters so you can say what you need to say, recommend tracks, etc.

It would help out with getting some tracks some publicity on your own page.

Well, then you could just reupload the same track and vote 5 on it (as soon as it got downvoted that is)?Wouldn't that destroy the AP even more?Or atleast fill up the first 60 pages with track that have a 5.00 score.

I'm now going to attempt to type in ONE paragraph my feelings on the direction the audio portal should take.

..if you look back at my first few posts in this thread back on page 1, you'll understand how hard that is for me.

The audio portal has evolved. It started as a loop system, fair enough, but the users have taken liberties from the system and it has evolved into a sort of mini-site. The community is far smaller, and publicity is less - but this is not because people arn't interested in audio; it's because nobody knows its here. Newgrounds is promoted as a promimently flash site - again, fair enough - but it has that new motto; 'Everything, by Everyone. I know there's a huge site rehaul coming up, and it's impossible to tell what would happen yet, but I feel it would be benificial to push the site away from the flash animation typecasting it currently holds, and promote it as a 'media' website.

Wow. Long paragraph. Does that count?
