Zerovoting, also known as "Zero-Bombing" is just unfair to everyone, but to someone... it is a . Face it, having your music show up on the first page when various people come to the AP is VERY important to exposure. Even if the person plans on hunting deep into the back pages, they are still going to see your name and song first before doing so. Also, if someone important, like someone who can give out record contracts or needs music for a game in development comes to the AP, they are not going to know about Zero-Bombing. Those important people are just going to check out whatever is highest on the charts obviously thinking that it will be the best music available.
But of course, most of us already know this, so...
Chances are if you have became enraged about Zero-Bombing enough to complain about it, you are most likely guilty of doing it yourself. Deep down inside we all know that to be successful at this strategy, you have to be against the strategy. So we all pretend to hate it, but whoever is smart will use it.
So for those of you who haven't learned the ways of Zero-Bombing allow me to teach you how it works...
PRIVACY! PRIVACY! PRIVACY!
Zero-Bombing is something that you should never admit to doing for the sake of your reputation. (NOTE: Whatever you do, after reading this guide DO NOT post any "Thank You" replies. What you need to do is bash, complain and write hateful things about this guide so you will not be suspected as a potential Zero-Bomber. Don't worry, I can handle negative responses, besides I will know what you truly are thinking.) Currently no one has exposed a way to tell WHO the Zero-Bombers are, so as long as you don't talk about it, you can use your main account to do it. If you are still afraid you can always create a secondary Newgrounds account to do all your dirty work.
VOTING (BOMBING) POWER
The Audio Portal voting system works like the Flash Portal voting system, so you want to have as much voting power as you can. The higher your power, the less you will have to Zero-Bomb tracks. This is also how you will be able to compete against other Zero-Bombers. Overall, if you got more power than you can keep your scores high and other peoples low.
THE FIGHT FOR THE FRONT PAGE
If you have a new track that you are ready to submit to the AP, make sure the coast is clear! Before you submit the track, go to the section your submitting the track and Zero-Bomb all the tracks on the first page, and if you feel up to it, Zero-Bomb the whole second page as well. (NOTE: You will want to have a browser that supports TABS and also a mouse with a middle button. When you go down the track listings you should be able to click the song link with the middle mouse button, allowing it to open into another TAB. After you have a bunch of TABS open, you can quickly click through them allowing you to hit the "Vote 0" button much more faster.) Give about 2 to 3 days for everyone to finish whining and freaking out and then submit your new song.
AVOID BECOMING AND MAKING A SUSPECT
(NOTE: This is just a theory that takes time and doesn't always work. I had a successful test using ganon95 as the suspect and cornandbeans tracks as the ones that I wanted to get bumped to the first page of the Techno section, and it worked.) If you have multiple songs that you want all on the first page you have to take cautious steps to do so. If you just go crazy Zero-Bombing until all your music is at the top of the list like its your own personal page other artists are going to suspect you right away as the Zero-Bomber. Which can lead to your tracks getting constantly bombed. The best way around this is to find another artist who has multiple songs on, or close to the first page. This will be the artist you set up to be the suspect a.k.a victim a.k.a sacrifice. Begin by constantly Zero-Bombing anyone's tracks that have higher scores than your music and the "suspects" music. Then vote 5's on all the "suspects" music, but be careful to keep your score right under the suspects. Eventually, you will end up with a list of the "suspects" music at the top of the first page and most of your music listed below the "suspects". Finally, you wait and someone else that you will have Zero-Bombed the crap out of will come along and think that the "suspect" is the one who Zero-Bombed them and retaliate back allowing your tracks to flow up on the first page.
ZERO-BOMBING FOR REVENGE
If someone starts bitching at you because of the way you talk on the internet, or comes to your user page and intentionally tries to start an argument then you should probably Zero-Bomb their tracks.
ZERO-BOMBING FOR FUN
Just sick of it all? Got nothing better to do with your time? Then go raise havoc in the Audio Portal!
