When you submit a piece of Audio to Newgrounds, it will be made available instantly on your user page.
Inclusion in public listings is based on a community scouting system. Once an audio artist submits four audio works, then that artist is able to be scouted by an established member of the community who will vouch for the quality of their work. Once a scouting invite has been offered and accepted via the NG Private Messaging system, their work will appear automatically in public listings and searches.
Once scouted, an artist has the ability to scout others. Artists CAN lose this ability if they exercise poor judgment. Artists can also be de-scouted if they submit bad audio, and can be permanently banned if they break the rules.
Downloads are enabled only for scouted users. This is to prevent abuse.
Here are some details specific to audio submissions:
- There is a file size limit of 15 megabytes.
- Files must be sampled at 44.1 kHz.
- Rappers, singers, lyricists and voice-over actors are encouraged to submit capella tracks, or by using and crediting other NG audio as a base, as using copyrighted work is expressly forbidden.
