Comp Question...
Hydro Hellsing Hydro Hellsing is offline 25-06-2012, 06:04 AM

Are we (Site Members or just VIP's) allowed to host Competitions and if so are we allowed to give away Prizes not related to Music as long as the Comp's Music Oriented?

A three-judge panel of Hydro, Essence and Oakwood sounds like it would have been a lot of fun! "MP3U Factor"

In theory. In practise... who knows, as it's never been tried before. Would probably require quite a bit of planning and preparation.

It's a great idea though (thanks Tony!), and we'll definitely shelve it for later.
This time around, alas, our controversial "Simon" character wants to enter so it was never to be.

Unless we can find an apt replacement (Mr Fountain? FFabbia?) it seems this time around the open vote is the best compromise.

But as the official host of this "Unofficial Comp", Hydro should have final say. What is your verdict, Mr. Hellsing?

I'd have no gripe about entering a competition judged by Hydro or anyone.

Thing is this... anyone judging a competition is open to a fair bit of abuse should they choose a winner that doesn't work for the majority of entrants. Judges beware (but not voters)!!!

So, to pick a judge (or panel) you have to believe (or accept) they are fair minded then there can be no-legitimate-complaints whoever the winner is.

Even artists come in for flack (should they win and not declare they had used samples from someone else). It wasn't long ago that this happened in this very boutique. Bickering went so far that the judging credentials were seriously questioned.

So artists and judges beware maybe!!!

Should a voting system be decided then keep it to artist-members. OK, the winner won't (I reckon) feel the kudos of winning should a judge or panel have decided the result but if nobody can decide on a panel then what to do?

How many times have you seen Andy comment on Dance music other than KTA...it's very little...Thats because he doesn't understand it too well.
How many folk know anything about the music they dance to? I'd submit that you don't need to understand something to appreciate it - for example gravity or magnetism.

I do tend to listen to marty's music but i've pm'ed him a few times to say i won't be commenting because a particular tune did nothing for me.

It's my musical taste that is all-too restrictive not my understanding. Hell, i don't even like much rock music anymore!!!

I'll use your Drum and Bass upload as an example of you don't understand EDM

Nuff Said

That is one example of why I wont enter if you're the judge...and The fact you're narrow minded to what you comment on.

Lol nearly fell off my chair when I read that - This round goes to Andy with a knockout I declare - now of course I`m no expert on Boxing so probably my opinion is invalid!
