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.
Won't work. Although, it may stop 90% of the zero bombing, it will also stop 50% of people voting on your song. See, most people will listen to all of your song if they really like it. Others however will give it a quick listen, decide how good it is and vote it and leave. Now, unless you make a song that 100% of the world's population will like, you're gonna' get less votes on that song and considering that's it hard enough getting enough votes for the top 5 and 30 now, hardly anyone would make it to 20 votes.
Ok, let's list the ideas that WON'T solve zero bombing.
Remove the voting system?
No more top 5 and top 30. More advertising spam in the AF.
The ability to see who has voted what on your song?
You want people non-stop zero voting eachother? 100's of threads, news posts, reviews flaming users because they zero'd songs. It would just be utter chaos.
Having to review the song to vote on it?
Just like I said up there, less votes, no more top 5 and top 30.
Have the mods' watch who zero votes alot?
You can't expect the mods of NG to monitor like 20,000 people and the every vote they make.
That's all the so called 'solutions' I can think of that have been said in this thread and it's just to prove that nothing is fool-proof and there is always going to be asses who get off over pressing a button on a webpage, not to mention, so people will stop suggesting the same shit over and over again. Honestly, there is one solution: DON'T LET ZERO BOMBING BOTHER YOU!!. Maybe if everyone didn't give these guys attention, zero bombing wouldn't be so much fun to them anymore but sadly, in this competitive world. There will always be zero bombers and there will always be people who needs lots of downloads and votes because to them. Music is all about attention, not creativity.
