Interesting month.
Code: Select all
Soundcloud File name format: Artist - Track Title where artist name is the same as KVR nick.

Code: Select all
Soundcloud entry MUST have downloads enabled

Code: Select all
The DAW/host, all FX used, and how many instances of the synth and FX was used.

The three rules above are a direct copy/paste from the official rules page https://sites.google.com/site/kvrosc/rules which is linked at the start of each monthly competition. All three are in the very first section of the page.
Only 38% of entrants managed to follow all three rules. I applaud those. :clap:
This also invalidates the notion that no one bothers with the basic rules since over 1/3rd of entrants did in fact follow them all.

76% did atleast follow two out of the three. And I can understand/sympathize with accidentally forgetting one once and awhile. I'm sure I have forgotten a time or two to tick the little box to enable download in my rush to get a track posted on time.

And almost 10% couldn't manage to follow a single one of the three. This I don't understand at all. Maybe if it was their first entry, but that is not the case here.

So it seems that most participants make at least some effort to comply with the requests made to them as a condition of participation. I wonder why there is a small portion that don't feel they need to bother?

Their loss of easy points in my 20 point personal voting system I guess. :shrug:

"Soundcloud File name format: Artist - Track Title where artist name is the same as KVR nick." :oops:
This is only rule I don't follow. It kind of weird to have double artist name since soundcloud includes artist name. It looks weird and bad on soundcloud :oops: :P .

Ohh and I have voted.

Have you considered why such a rule might be in place other than to simply upset visual aesthetics of a Soundcloud page?
KVR and Soundcloud are seperate websites. Therefore it can be difficult/impossible to have the same username in both places. Especially if one joined one site long before the other. Or you can have the situation where the Soundcloud account the has the same username as the KVR account but the Soundcloud runs out of space and it forces the participant to create a new Soundcloud account which no longer matches the KVR account name..
So say we have KVR user 1JohnSmith27 and they decide to enter the OSC. They post a SC link in their entry called "Sunshine Daisy 87" under the Soundcloud name of 3BobJones45.
How might that situation impact the tallying of the votes?
No one named 3BobJones45 entered the contest, yet here are votes for 3BobJones45.
So now the person who donates their time to run the contest has to page through the whole thread to try and match 3BobJones45 to the KVR name 1JohnSmith27.
Now repeat that process for all the other tracks that don't follow the very first rule on the rule page.
Seems like an unnecessary waste of the volunteer's time to have to do that when the entrant could simply put their KVR username in the track name as requested by the rules.
And once the contest is over and voting results posted if an entrant does not like the visual aesthetic of having a redundant Artist name in their track title I'm pretty sure it would not be too big of a deal to edit the Soundcloud track name to be more aesthetically pleasing. :shrug:

As I see it, one reason for adding your KVR nickname to the soundcloud track title is that it is identifiable when voting. The page only shows track titles. Given that this isn't a blind voting system, it is nice to connect people to their work. I know it isn't a popularity contest, but it helps (for me at least) to connect the track details posted here to the track.

Sadly my internet access has been heavily restricted since I posted my track, so didn't really get the opportunity to add details or vote.
So I apologise and wish everyone luck :D
