@JordanKyser You might want to do something about that.

Good luck to everyone! Or break your legs, or whatever...

@JordanKyser, I didn't see my song on the playlist either. I submitted after GFThePlayer and before ClockbeatAdelony87, so basically I should be second to last on the list since you've listed by order of submission.

Hello there! Welcome to Newgrounds Remix Competition 2018! (NGRMC) I’m Zophar and I will be your host. This is the first time for this competition. If this competition lives onto next year, then maybe a few other judges will join. But it’s just me. What this competition is: You are given a four (4) bar melody and you have to remix it into a full song. You will have one month to make the remix. October 1, 2018 is the deadline. So submit your remixes by then!

I was a bit too late to see this unfortunately (right now), will there be another contest like this this year?

Good to hear. Were you active back in 2007 too by the way? I just registered again with a new account after ten years of absence.

Your name seems familiar, but you registered very recently. New account too?

No I was young back then. And I didn't really care about the internet. I registered a few years ago.

@ChronoNomad is right; they should be out the 7th. We're working on the spreadsheet now.

I also have several reviews to release. I did tons of them on paper while I was out and about the other day.

@Zophar @8oltSh0cX

Double post, but just confirming here I have now gotten ALL the submissions migrated into the new spreadsheet, formatted, linked, and arithmetic set up, meaning if you posted your submission here, you're covered. I anticipate having my own round of scores out tomorrow or the next day.

Since I did many of my track notes on paper in a coffee shop, feel free to send me a PM if there's something you want more feedback on and I'll revisit your piece accordingly. @Xepho, you'll be getting two reviews since I didn't see your update (a separate piece) the other day. There were a few such episodes of separate upload fixes to entries; those should now be fixed and everything organized for easy browsing.

There are 30 total submissions out of what looks like 40-ish participants over the course of the thread. Great turnout! We've been judging as we go, so it shouldn't be too long before the sheet is finalized.

Also, I didn't get the chance to comment properly earlier, but thank you everyone for the warm welcomes and memes; I swear I'm no big deal, just here to help!

Hmm... Yeah, there are 30 of them, and you have school. If it's really bothering you, and you can set reminders, you could always do one a day over the next month. At that rate you would be going until November 3rd if you had just started now, and I know you've done some reviews already. :)

Response to NGRMC 2018 Submission Thread! 2018-10-06 09:54:55


Hey guys! Just a heads up judging is almost done! But I haven't really had a lot of time because of school and because I'm trying to get out all my music ideas. I was really into this one song I was writing and I got carried away. But I finished it now. If you want to take a listen: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/826994
But I think we'll be done by next week Monday - Wednesday. Sometime through there. We're just waiting on one more submission to come in and I had to make an exception with him. I can't wait to see the final results and reflect for next year!

Yeah, from the looks of it, judging is getting pretty close to wrapping up, a few extra days at most, depending on schedules. Just wanted to note here I've got about 5 more reviews to put out, and have been really enjoying the competition so far. It's really amazing seeing all the different ideas that can come from one single source. Diversity of mind is a helluva thang.

I try to cover a lot of ground in my reviews or at least leave some useful commentary. If you've got a particular part of your song I haven't addressed yet, or want synth/FX recommendations for future compositions, lemme know!

Response to NGRMC 2018 Submission Thread! 2018-10-08 13:19:23


Everyone, just to confirm, @8oltSh0cX and I have finished our rounds of judging. I repeat, @8oltSh0cX and yours truly have finished judging. *MLG air horn noises*

Btw @ChronoNomad, I still owe you a review. Don't let me forget.

Kisses, y'all. It's been nothing short of awesome. Super excited for the results!

AAAAA <3
Still not sure why everyone thinks I'm awesome -- but what I meant to say is that it's my policy to review everything I score, so I owe me a review to you, haha. I'm one of those people who will procrastinate until it's horribly inconvenient to do anything at all due to time constraint too, so trying to teach myself out of that. If not kept in check, I'll get anxious and actively avoid responsibilities for days (one of the reasons I hold off entering any competitions, actually)

This. We've all been very patient, but even the NGADM Auditions, which sees well over 100 entries per year, keeps the judging period down to one week. Don't keep us in suspense, man!

JUDGING IS COMPLETE!!!

I just finished judging and now we're going to organize the list and rank everyone. I am still deciding on penalties for people who broke the rules. And there were a few people who did. The results will be posted on a final results thread! Thank you everyone who participated! This was a great first year!

List is organized! I also fixed some of the formulas so averages would display properly. Just waiting on some pretty formatting now, some spit shine, and of course the announcement we've all been waiting for.
