Once again, it's Friday, you aint got no job and you aint got shit to do!
...and now, it's time for another
Audio Dept. end of week report
New Audio Portal Submissions: 462 (down 165 from last week)
with the most new submissions to:
Techno and Hip Hop - Modern are tied for first place - both with 79 new submissions
Miscellaneous - Miscellaneous weighed in with 57 new tracks
Video Game had 44 new tunes
Trance came in 5th with 29 new submissions
Not exactly a record-breaking week for audio submissions...
There were 66 new topics created this week in the AF and 1003 new posts.
This week felt completely dead - as I wandered the streets of the AF, my only companions a tumbleweed and a few crickets, a lone coyote yipped in the distance. Only a few decent topics were made or revived and a few bad ones popped their heads up as well...
Points of Interest:
Collaborations. This seems to be the flavor of the week.
There are a few collaboration threads
Points of InterestHERE and HERE as well as another HERE. This also loosely ties in with the newgrounds band for a total of no less than 4 collab related topics on page 1.
Audio collabs rarely, if ever, actually go anywhere - I've been involved with several audio collabs and a flash collab or two as well. The audio always starts out strong - spirits are high, everyone is pumped and ready ... for 10 minutes - then they start the slow downward spiral into oblivion... I wish them luck - they'll need it.
There's no shortage of spam in the AF - three things that most of us are good at include making little tunes, telling people to read the damn stickies and spamming up the AF.
Points of Concern:
Lots of hate rolling around the AF this past week. Several topics have already been locked. A few new faces have shown up recently in the AF and they're damaging morale - One can't seem to stop bitching about ParagonX9. Another is simply complaining about the quality of NGAP submissions. A few more here and there do what they can to cause problems. If they persist, I'll name them and see about getting them banned from the AF for a while - that is, unless it's already been taken care of.
If I didn't know better I would think it was an intentional attack. Psy-Ops on the AF...
Hey, waitasecond - I don't know better!
Over the next week, I will be beating my head against the wall to come up with a few ideas that might breath new life into the NGDD. I hope you all do the same!
