BATTLE OF THE MIX: A MIXTAPE COMPETITION

Yeah, I couldn't think of a better name.

Anyways, the premise of the competition is this: create a mixtape of five to ten songs by using different artists for each song. The collective mix will be judged for its general coherence from song to song, its overall satisfaction to the listener, and its content. Therefore, it is important that you not only focus on the songs themselves, but their relationship to each other.

To enter a competition, send a PM to me with the names of five to ten songs that you would like to use in the mixtape. Use mediafire to place all of the songs into a convenient folder, but if you do not own the songs, use a youtube converter to acquire them.

During the voting process, you must critique each mixtape. And yes, that DOES mean you have to listen to every mixtape. If you do not vote for each tape (on a scale from 1 to 10, and a commentary that is greater than three sentences) your mix will be disqualified. Do not make commentary on your own mixtape. The critique must not be filled with meaningless hate, but legitimate critique. However, if your mix contains only shitty pop and boy bands, the hatespam may be tolerated to some extent.

However, in order to keep the competition as fair and unbiased as possible, I have created a series of separate rules for the competition, which may be edited at any time. Please follow these:

The Beatles are absolutely forbidden from being used in the mixtapes. This has been enacted so that ignorant members do not defile their work. However, solo works from any of the members is not restricted.

Everyone who enters a mixtape is, by default, forced to critique every mixtape, or they will be disqualified.

People who vote for mixtapes without putting any thought into their critique will be disqualified.

Do not vote unless it has been stated that the voting period has begun.

If you believe that one of the artists may be criticized immediately, you have the option of giving away only the names of the songs. However, you must give the names of the songs

I can, and will, disqualify you if I see that you are basing your judgments off the people rather than the mixtape.

The Beatles have the possibility of causing an unfair advantage over other competitors. Also, I don't want somebody to bastardize the Beatles with some other shit.

However, songs by individual members of the Beatles are acceptable.

preferably the song files themselves.

mediafire is ideal. put the songs into a folder, and send me the song names separately

because each mixtape will be downloadable.

You could always go to youtube and use a Youtube to MP3 converter, it'll probably be easier Erif.

Entrin'

EDIT: Instead of "don't critique your own mixtape" how about we just play it off in a way that keeps it anonymous? I mean if you're writing like "DIS GOOD MIXTAPE REAL GOOD DA BEST WHOEVER DA FUNK DA MADE IT HAS A HUGE PINGAS PROLLY LOL IDK" then it's obviously yours, but it's possible to give a mock critique of your own mixtape and make it look legit.

First mixtape has been entered. Not gonna lie, its very good.

I mean if you're writing like "DIS GOOD MIXTAPE REAL GOOD DA BEST WHOEVER DA FUNK DA MADE IT HAS A HUGE PINGAS PROLLY LOL IDK" then it's obviously yours, but it's possible to give a mock critique of your own mixtape and make it look legit.


Originally I considered this. But then I realized that there would be a notable crowd of people that could not fake review their own mixtape. I created a series of complex rules around them, and thought it would just be easier not to bother.

Its still open, though.

You realize that this actually KILLED anonymity, though. Because now, rather than people having to guess which is yours based on the weird reviewing, instead, they know automatically by which one you left out.

Yes, but you are forgetting that people are lazy. Also, its only not anonymous if you go to the effort to find it out

killing anonymity is more obvious than that
