Here are the 20 audios that qualifies to the independent judging!

Songs appear in no specific order ;)

If your song is not in the list that follows, you have not been qualified for judgement. Better luck next time.

WinTang - March of the Tankmen

Syntrus - Major Heart on!

_Arbiter_ - MAC6 - TANKMEN Theme

Deflektor76 - Tankmen on breakfast!

MaestroRage - _-={The Tanks Thunder}=-_

General_Leo - The Fall and Rise of a Hero

Bad_Man_Incorporated - Bad Man Tank Thing 1

CptnJarrrrrydn - Tankmen (DS revisited)

speedmetalmessiah - Mighty Tankmen!

DarKsidE_555 - TANKMEN (bombs away!)

Bungeetounge - Tankmen

RiftMaster - Tankmen (Aug. Audio Contest)

Cerrax - The Tankmen Are Coming!

Anth0n - {ANT} - Battery Power

Chronamut - +*+*(vortex)*+*+

cornandbeans - Tankmen Attack!

-ZEENON- - Tankmen--_--

kliff - my submission to tankmen

schwam - Here comes the Tankmen!

John_Floyd - Take My Tank... Please

Utah have made a comment on every one of these 20 songs. The comments will be in the thread AFTER the contest is over, so no judges will get influenced by his thoughts.

However, there is one submission that gets a special mention;

Mr_Show - That's Tankmen! (Theme Song)
Comment from Utah;

Even though I feel this guy should possibly be banned from the site for the obnoxious, unjustified personal attacks he's sent through the PM system to me and clearly only lives to be a thorn in the side of others, I'm going to include his entry in the group as #21. His work is more in the spirit of the rules than some of the others and I can take a joke, but there really isn't a way for me to include this in a tankmen episode.

I am the one who said "no" on this entry to be in the independent judgement, mainly because of two reasons;

- The limit was set to 20 submissions, and I intend to keep it this way. Whilst I respect Utah´s wish to include thisone, and very much understand why he did not want to exclude any other entry because of this, 20 submissions is what gets qualified for judging.

- The other major reason was the fact that Utah have recieved abusive PM´s, wich I do not tolerate in any way. Do know that this is my (Rucklo´s) decition alone Utah can not be blamed for this in any way, he is teh one who wanted this submission in despite the limit of 20 songs, and I said no!

Just like Utah mentione that he can take a joke, so can I. I found the song funny, but the above reasons why this is denied still stands.

If anyone have any comments of this decition, contact me.

Yeah, next MAC will be very simple, I will prepare for something more serious for october.
I was actually doubting that there would be a MAC for september, but there will be a small one.
However, like you suggest, I will launch it later on in the month, and see what effect that have on the contest.

BACKUPJUDGES

Just in case one or more judge is absent and doesn´t even see the PM´s I send them, it would be great to have a backuup judge or two so the deadline can be held.

Is there ANYONE who would be interested in judging?

The judging basicly looks like this;

- Ten songs to judge

- Set a score in 5 different categories (this is made easy due to a cool device LJCoffee have made :)

- Write a short review to all ten songs.

Simple eh? If you sign up, deeper info is to follow, of course :)

Now there´s no need to be alarmed that some judges aren´t there, I just want to make sure that deadline is held, due to a few factors :)

if you were in the contest but did not make it to the top 20, you are more then welcome to sign up as a backup judge!!!

PM ME IF YOU WANT TO BE A BACKUPJUDGE!!!

Up´s and down´s... up´s and down´s... Good t hing with down´s is that an up is waiting around the corner, eh? :)

Just to let everyone know;

Tomorrow I´ll be picking up the key to my new home, and my parents are gonna help me out with taking some stuff there. This mean I´m gonna be quite busy, because on top of this, the deadline for the judges is set for tomorrow! If some judges ain´t in time, then I´ll turn to the backupjudges (you know who you are:) and will expect a rather fast work from these.
As a backupjudge, the most important thing is to get the score in, so we can rank the top 20.

I do not have broadband at my place yet, but my school do, and i have access to the school 24/7. I just have to get the key so I can use this computer, since the mac´s on the school doesnt seem to accept my mp3-player, where i keep some of the files I need for continuing this contest.

So, if anyone wonders where the hell I´m at tomorrow (monday), I´m doing stuff, and i´ll be around! :)

There will be a slight delay on the announcing of the top 20.

There are a number of reasons for this, the biggest one is my "fault". I have major techincal dificulties with accessing the correct info i need for working on the MAC, wich is on my laptop. now times up, ill explain more tomorrow or in a few hours, if i get the time to get back to the school arghhhhh.....

A NOTE ON THE FINAL SCORES!!!

- To all of you who made the top 20 -

The final scores are not yet ready but before they are posted I want you to understand the scoring system a little better.

Each of 6 attributes is assigned a score between 0 and 10, then there is a little math that multiplies a couple of averages...

The final scores will range from 0 to 100 but it is not a linear system and

Basically, if you got all 5's your total score would be 25 NOT 50

This was done so that there would be less of a chance for ties.

It's important that you keep this in mind so that when you eventually see your scores you don't freak out because they are lower than what you may have expected.

Anything over 40 or so is a very good score.

Only the very best scoring submissions will see the higher scores and it's damn difficult to get scores in the 90's.

If you have any questions or bitches about the final scores, feel free to PM me and I'll give you more info about how scores were tabulated.

Thanks.

I have a question though the scoring system and all that the person who comes in 1st does not mean they won right? It is after all Utah's choice. When does he say who he wants?
