But the late entry wins a prize, though - at least I think I remember it that way - different other participants said they are not going to meet the time line if they are going to spend time to polish their tracks and thus submit early...well...hm...that has a smell, and I remember my post that was ignored, quote:As soon as a "yes" is also coming from participants that wrote sth. like"due to time constraints wasn't able to polish" or like "more abandond than finished" I'm fine. Otherwise I would have a bad gut feeling...
But I would say let's make a deal...one hand washes the other and each side has to put something on the table - We accept late submission but 574X promises not to take any price but leaves it for the next challenge in april if he makes first 5. Deal?
What would be the point of allowing someone to participate with any type of stipulation that they could not place in the top five?
How on earth could that participant control where they ended up in the ranking?
They were allowed to have a late entry submitted by a vote.
The people who judged the contest awarded enough points so the late entry made top five.
We don't yet know if 574X is even wanting to select a prize. It could very well be they just wanted to share an interesting tune and see how it stacked up with the other submissions.
I find this whole discussion quite distasteful.
A person managed to make a track that was considered good enough by their peers to be in the top five. But now what should be a proud happy moment for the participant is tainted with claims of unfairness and people wanting to take that rewarding experience away.
