OK fine, know what? Everybody I've messed with back in 2006 is mad at me still so I'm gonna step up to the plate . . .

I'm sorry for whatever it is I did, or said, whatever it may be. I've been quite hostile lately. Hey, when you gotten fired from a kickass job over some stupid brown-nosin' hickbilly who started whacking you with a duster (and not the soft end either), becoming $500 in debt to the bank, your wrestling career isnt going anywhere and on TOP OF that, you got some arrogent newgrounders trying to downsize you over some stupid bullshit from over two years ago.

I'm fuckin stressed, so just leave me be. OK how bout this, HouseMasta is superior to me. THERE HAPPY?

Bragging about how many times you get zero bombed makes you look cool right?

PS requesting lock this is getting out of hand.

Why does everybody request locks once things get out of hand on NG?

I guess you guys have some troubles sorting out problems out in real life. Running away will not solve anything.

It's also better someone bitches in here than flooding the forums.

Exactly. This thread is kinda meant to get out of hand, because all the zerobombing threads that get out of hand are directed here.


A heavy bassline is my kind of silence.

Enjoy progressive house? Then listen to my song.

Or maybe that the initial point of this thread was about exposure, and not zero bombing.

Yeah I think that will solve everything, there are some things I think why that doesn't happen:
- we are just the slaves of the flash ppl, so why put so much effort in the AP?
- Tom has got other things to do (like testing CASTLE CRASHERS :D)
- It will cost some money for all the xtra servers and stuff
- Let's get on topic now... or i'll get banned

The audio portal and Flash portal have the same problems; Idiots down voting. But in the Flash portal, there is always somebody to cancel that idiot vote out. Because the lack of people interested in listening to 5 minute song, the idiots that down vote in the audio portal don't get cancelled out. There is no solution, any system will be abused.

/me jumps in based upon the first few posts in the thread.

I agree with downvoting, but I really can't complain with the Exposure I'm getting (Take Me Across, the #1, is my song)

But seeing my score drop from a 4.88 to a 3.88 in little over a day is a bit depressing.

what if there was a way to make it so you were required to watch the flash video or listen to the song before you could vote, because most of the time zero bombers dont even listen to the song they just zero bomb it, what if you had to listen to the whole thing, i mean there may still be zero bombers but there would be less.

I mean i hate zero bombers as much as the next guy, and i esspecially hate the people who review your work as say its crap and give you a bad score becuase its not there type of a music, some guy voted a 6 on my song when i had mostly 8's, 9's and 10's because "its newgrounds" and newgrounds doesn't like classical music, hey guess what buddy, its the classical section of the portal if you dont like it dont listen to it gosh lol

There are too many threads. The answer is simple - we just wait until that (or something else) takes effect.

On garageband you MUST review the song to vote. Infact - your vote IS the review. As well as this, they have a way of finding out if you just copy + paste all of your reviews.

e.g.

Vote: 0 out of 10

This is shit kill yourself. Omg everything about it is horrible I can't even review this.

or

Vote 10 out of 10

Wow I loved this! I'm speechless! 10 out of 10, keep making music!

------------------

Anyways, this way if anyone 0 voted everyone would know who. If you are wondering about the different scores sytems it's quite simple.

2 on the review = 1 on the vote. (Because i'm sure Tom and Wade don't want to change the score system to 0-10)

Anyways, this idea has come up in several of the "0 voters" topics. I'm not really sure why i'm bringing it up again because most of us know it but every time a new 0 voting topic pops up I feel like no one knows it.

Also notable, the person to whom the song belongs can rate the review on a scale of 1 to 11, which can make their reviewer rating go up or down.

An idea to prevent the 0 bombers is to have the name of the person (username) and how much they voted. If you see the same person doing the same thing to others then you should be able to report this to an admin and have them banned from voting. Hell if they aren't doing anything good for the portal(s) why let them vote?

I'd say this is a reasonable idea and one that shouldn't take too much time to make and implement. Mind you I know nothing of programming so I could be completely wrong and it could be hard as fuck. Though I do think that this should be used for the sake of audio and even flash artists.
