Recommended Posts

Ladies and gentlemen the judgment day is upon us!
The voting for the 10 winner tracks has officially begun! If you want to participate please read the following FAQ:



Q: How long will the voting period last?
A: 42 days. Starting right now and ending 31st December 2015 23:59:59 GMT. At midnight we will lock the thread and no more votes will be allowed.

Q: How to vote?
A: Follow this link and listen to all the tracks in the group. When you have a definite top 10 post the results directly in this thread.

Q: Who can vote?
A: Every Psynews member. If you're not a member feel free to register.

Q: Is there a specific way to write the results?
A: Yes, your top 10 should follow this specific format:

Votes:
1: Artist - Title
2: Artist - Title
3: Artist - Title
4: Artist - Title
5: Artist - Title
6: Artist - Title
7: Artist - Title
8: Artist - Title
9: Artist - Title
10: Artist - Title

The votes will be counted automatically by Rotwang's software so you need to follow the exact formatting.

The 1st track will get 10 points. The 2nd 9 points, the 3rd 8 points etc. So order does matter! You favourite track should be no 1.
You can vote for fewer than 10 tracks as well.
Also you should not quote other people's votes when replying.

Q: If I change my mind can I edit my votes?
A: Yes, you can edit your votes as many times as you like until the deadline. Just make sure to edit your old post instead of creating a new one.


Q: Can artists who participate in the contest vote for their tracks?
A: Yes, they can. We feel that prohibit this would be unfair for people who genuinely believe that their tracks are worth voting. Plus since most artists have different artist name and psynews nickname it would be impossible to track down who is who.


Q: Anything else?
A: Yes. Please keep it fair by following these rules:
1. Listen to all the tracks before voting. The voting period is lengthy to listen to each track many times, so please take your time.
2. Do not vote based on popularity or friendships. It' s unfair for both popular and unknown artists. Vote for the music.
3. Do not create duplicate accounts to vote multiple times.




That is all. If you have any question feel free to ask.

Happy voting!

Latest update:

Thanks to Paul Eye suggestion we made sure that all tracks are unreleased. After some search we spotted a couple of tracks that don't follow this rule. The artists have been informed and their tracks have been removed.

However one of the artists Styr0x has not replied back. After carefully listening to both the soundcloud track and the one on bandcamp it appears that it's the exact same track with a slightly longer outro. Therefore the track has been removed.

If you're aware of any other tracks that have been officially released, but we missed them please inform us.

Rules are rules people! :D

 

In total there are 41 tracks to vote for.

Must say. One hell of a contest, a lot of great tracks. Only about half way through listening to all of them but already found some really neat stuff.

Yeah! I am so glad you decided to become a member of Psynews and especially of "Finnish goamafia" here :) We have this new members' welcome topic: don't hesitate to introduce yourself!

You can vote for fewer than 10 tracks as well.

How fair is that if people just come to vote for their one favourite artist? If you ask me, voting and listening should take at least some effort.

 

 

And please, remove the colour tags from the text (well, the red can stay). I'm on the deviant theme (and probably some others too) and can't see most of the text as it blends into the background colour.

I agree about this. There is enough good stuff that even picking the best 10 among them is hard enough.

 

Also, my honest vote could probably look like I'm trying to help my friends in this contest. I can assure in advance that I will try my best to give a vote reflecting my personal taste in music alone.

What if someone likes only 7 tracks and he thinks the rest are equally bad? We can't force people to vote for tracks they dislike.

 

As for the colours there's only black and red so I don't know what you mean. :P

 

 

And perhaps put a link to this thread in the Soundcloud group description :)

Will do.

I had to make a forced choice, but honestly the Cybernetika's and Xenofish's tracks transcend to the same pinnacle. Seriously, these guys come straight from another dimension. Absolutely untouchable.

Fixed.

 

Also, will everyone please put a line containing the word "votes" at the start of their votes.
