:- none of which seem to be particularly well thought out

Its simple really,

Everytime one clicks on a vote, the NG system will COLLECT the user vote to the specific account.
If the system notices the person is constantly giving out zero's, it can notify the admins or just autoban the person to vote.
It can even be measured by the amount of positive votes and negative votes.

I don't see how this is not "well thought out" honestly.
I mean people click daily on something, NG must have some sort of tracking / data collection system?

I know developing such thing isn't particularly simple, but the concept is, in its context simple.

sorry for the 3th post.

You come along, put one of my tracks down with possibly the worst reason for it then I see you here, bitching that you get zero bombed when you're doing it to people yourself. Fuck off you hypocrite, it's no wonder your tracks are getting bombed.

More like: the lower your score, the better your track :D
Oh, haha. It really was zerobombed, then?

Someone trying to tell someone they are at fault?

Amen!

And you know it's only the 13 y/o newbs who upload crappy cheesy dance music that give themselves and all good music 0! And because that makes up the majority - it all ends up on the fucking homepage only to attract more 13 y/o newbs!

bombing has reached a new level of sad.

I never give a score (doh 5) my own tracks right away, usually i wait 2 weeks but this time i upload a new track (blue night, and come on its a good track for fuck sake) guess what happens.. instantly got a 0 not even 1 minute after i uploaded it.

So im like ok whatever im gonna 5 my own track just so it looks a bit more normal not that i really care about the score cause lol its newgrounds, im not going to repeat myself but honestly.. IT ONLY ADDED 0.50 POINTS ?!

Did someone with a level of 50 or something just zerobomb me? :l

Can this individual please get raped?
(and his family too)

yea i know this specific person whoever it is will be stroking his dick while reading this but i dont care i was already planning on leaving newgrounds depending if i keep getting reviews without having to resort to extreme measures such as the review request club wich i quitted going to cause its flocked by spammers lately.

Really, newgrounds.. fuck you.. fix your problems.
remove the whole voting system from the audio portal for god sake noone (with actual musical talent) wants it.

3.38 / 5.00 (+ 0.52) Thanks for voting, Mich! Your experience points gave you a voting power of 7.15 votes.

How's the for proof it wasn't actually me, even though I'm pretty sure that's what you thought?

Yeeeaaaah.
I once thought of making an awesome song that started with 10 seconds of horrible noise killing everyones fucking brain and then going on into the most awesome music ever (i had it in my head but i forgot how it went.. lol) with the text 'if you couldnt hear past it, prejudice, if you cant hear past this, prejudice' it would be the best entry ever.

maybe ill make it sometime afterall.

I actually did that a few months back.

there should be an equation to find the voting power of somebody who zero bombed by finding how much they affected your score. come to think of it, what is all the math that dictates voting and such?

NG ain't for exposure unless you're lucky. It's a place to link all your buddies to trick them into listening the songs you made >: D

but when you have no buddies?

oh i do have buddies but they dont vote, they just tell me 'awesome piece of music man!'
and then carry on.

now that i think of it thats better than votes.

would make for a good system, instead of a 1/5 just make a poll saying:

I 0 you lol-

This is bad music try again, no wait just go away and take loansidi with you-

This is ok but not my preferred genre-

Are you calamaistr? Cause this track is the AMAZING????-

would be a better system than the current.

If you know a better poll to replace the current voting system then be my guest.

Exposure
- Here are some way of getting exposure (links):
Underdog list
Audio advertisement thread
Newgrounds musician front page list

+ Do collabs with other people, so their fans get to know your music and your fans his/hers.

Idiotic zero bombing terrorists could easily be stopped,

If either:
-Only the review scores determine whether or not a submission stays or is deleted.
-People can't vote on the same submission twice (unless it's been updated recently).

Weird.. I'm not lazy >: I give people utmost detailed reviews. I 5 them, even if they didn't really pull off what I wanted them too as long as they don't suck >>. Effort, and the almighty ability to even make a song is enough for me. Since, psychology plays a big role when it comes to music. The more of a good mood you are in, the better your music, concentration, will is, in the end. I used to have a habit of reviewing people's songs on the most recent uploaded tracks through the audio portal. 95% of my reviews were replied to. Maybe you guys don't try hard enough to review? :/ You can't look at a review as if you are going to get your respect back. It's already disrespect reviewing someone's art, just because you are expecting them to return the favor. I review, because music is an art, and I truly love the way a human expresses their mind through such benevolence. Just my notions, and possible perspectives you guys could take into consideration ^-^.
