Response to Audio Portal Cleanup 2015-02-19 07:50:09
Man, there was quite a lot of stuff to go through. Really sorry for taking so long. I was busy with exams before and when they were over, I didn't realise there was such a backlog to take care of. Thank you to everyone here for helping keep the Audio Portal a cleaner place.

I dunno about this one. It is seem to be a MIDI instrument change, but also seem to be a legitimate remix. What do you think, guys?
Different tempo and length from the original, and it has a slightly different structure. I think I'll let it pass.

I consider this a test/spam song, just hear it, it sounds like someone dying.
Sounds like crap, but not something we would ban for or remove. As BrokenDeck said earlier, best to just vote negatively on it and/or leave it be.

Went through them all. Indeed, none of them were made by him. Account temporarily banned and tracks removed.

The fox has been silenced, for one month.

Confirmed. Taken care of, one-month ban.

For my next trick, I'll make this track disappear.

I love the author's comments. "if you are water flame i did this because i am a huge fan, not to copy your work"
Removed and banned for a month. I also removed his other tracks which were also not his.

Unfortunately (yes, I really mean unfortunately), this song is a copyright violation due to it being a blatant combination of 2 songs; Stereo Madness and Can't Let Go.
Apparently this was to use in a GD level, per the song's description.
Wow, that's never happened before. Track deleted, account banned for a month.

I know it's doubtful but I feel like there's the possibility that it's an official account (especially considering the username, profile description, and all of the links to their social media), so I don't want to go ahead and remove the tracks straight away. I'm not sure what we can do but I'll try and contact them from their website, which has an email address, and ask them if they can confirm the account's legitimacy. No idea if I'll get a reply but I may as well give it a shot.

I don't get the purpose of uploading these previews.
I've removed all those tracks. Those are definitely stolen.

Typical scenario. Stolen vid, stolen art, and so yes, stolen music too.
Bangin Burst. Taken from a video game (which makes me feel really friggin old! :\) and can be found on youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8FalXnxy-I
This one's being a bit more difficult to track, since all I have is the name "q-bic" and no author comments. But everything else he has uploaded has been stolen.
And, this one's stolen. YT link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jofNR_WkoCE
Taken care of! I also went ahead and deleted the second one. I don't usually go under "guilty until proven innocent" but I make some exceptions. If that track actually was his and he wanted fairer judgement, then he should've given his author's comments a bit more details than just "Lol". Either way, I can always re-publish the track if need be.

Apparently stolen from TheFatRat, and yet again ONLY TO USE IT IN A GD LEVEL. I blame RobTop. P.S: Wasn't downloading songs from unscouted artists disabled? Cause I was actually able to download the song via Geometry Dash.
Also stolen from TheFatRat, and also ONLY TO USE IN IN A GD LEVEL.
Done and done.

I guess there's a teensy chance of this being legit Skrillex, but srs, it's probably not...
Banned. Skrillex, if this really is you, SORRY ABOUT THAT.

Stolen from Final Fantasy per author comments:
Stolen from Battleblock Theater per author comments:
Love when they confess that it isn't theirs in the author's comments. Makes things so much easier.

All of his submissions were stolen, in fact. Taken care of.

Yet another song stolen from TheFatRat. Is this going to turn into a TheFatRat music depository?
Not if we can help it.

Looked through his whole account. I think only his first submission is legitimate. Couldn't find any hits on Shazam. The rest are stolen though.

Almost all of it is taken from the Mortal Kombat game. The last half is just quotes straight from the game.
Yeah that's bannable. Banned and tracks removed.

It's not his, it came from this video (not the same guy).
Yup. It's gone!
That's all of them. Phew.
