Euh? u got two new songs? That´s not allowed.
I am going to download all songs this weekend when i get the time to go to the library, and check things out, so that all is OK.
You first submission in the "new" section is the valid one.

Ah, I see now, do we get any hints about next months contest? Or do we have to wait?
Actually, I am strongly concidering withdrawing the contest next month. I have a theme, and there´s a fairly good idea, but it kindof feels like there´s not enough people around to make it any good. One reason also is that I think it would be a better contest, if it didn´t happen every month. Reason for this is that I think people would take it more sersioulsy if it were better worked out. Also, this is giving me more time to hook up with "outside" connections, and make it bigger.
What I´m basicly aiming for with the MAC is to awaken the flash artists of the AP, and there are many ways of doing this. I have a few ideas, but some will involve more action from administrators, mainly promoting, but if I can make it good, perhaps even awards. I have worded a little with Tom, and I will make a draft for the next contest I am more secure in is going to happen (october). I want the contest to keep evolving in a serious direction, with more or less involvement from administrators and NG fan-sites. And that requires more work, and many good ideas.
This might be the way it is going to look like, until there is actually a bigger request for an actual "monthly" audio contest, wich I would expect might happen after the upcoming improvement of the AP. The MAC may not be "monthly" until there´s a bigger request for it.
Best thing would of course be if there´s a weekly top 5 or whatever with an automated system that acutally works. Then it would be easier to focus on a theme-based contest ones in a while.
Also, this contest is taking up alot of time. Even though it would be fully possible to make one contest every month, I´m not sure, like mentioned, that there´s actually a need for this. I belive every other/third month would be more then enough. This is not only hard work for me, but for everyone involved, with a judging system, judging, and outside-support.
What I´m basicly saying is that I will take things as they come, things are in developement with the AP apparently, and we´ll see what move the administrators have for the future of the AP. Until things have happened, expect a contest in october to begin with.
As for the finale for this contest, there is something pretty cool that i´m working on, and hopefully it will happen. When things are more certain, I´ll announce it in this thread :)
