Hello!

This is my first post in this forum, so I welcome :)

Great idea with this contest :) I think about this in last year, but I was late with my set :P
In this year I gonna do it! :) My mix (rather megamix ;)) is done :)

Btw: i think, the limit of first 50 posts is not fair, becouse many of people produces great mixes. More than 50 people should have chance to win :(
Several seconds shouldn't determine about it.
Think about it :)

Greetings :)

You're welcome:friends:
Hoping the community will act as we expect.. give all sets a listen and vote fair!.:music:

@sonaikdg
I fully understand you.
However if we allow more entries, the chance is getting bigger not all sets are heard by the community. As a result the voting gets more unfair.

50 is in our opinion the magic balance number between fairgame & contestant size :)

Jeffrey, I can tell you three things:
1) As a contestant, I am not going to ask anyone to download my mix. If you like it, give me a vote. Thanks.
2) As an elector, I am going to listen to all approved mixes.
3) As a contestant and elector, I am not going to vote for myself.

It is tonight, be ready! :good2:

I have one more question, if you want to take a part in it, it is obligatory that you own an account here, right? :hmmm:

That's correct you must own a account here unless as states in previous posts someone will post a set for them (also a AH community user) that wont be able to post it themselves. :)

Can I put two url links to my zip file in one post in contest thread? For example one link from megaupload and one from sendspace, if one of them will be broken that other will be helpful :)

Ok.. wait.

For me 7up, rar and zip and a dozen of other packings ain't a problem. But it's not staff who's gonna decide who's gonna win.
So it's up to you what you choose.

We will allow downloadlinks to the mp3 file as well. Some voters might not be able to unpack, so.. no ened to pack.
I recommend Zippyshare.com - Free File Hosting (http://www.zippyshare.com)
Easy and quick download and the posibility to listen/stream online. Be sure to post the tracklist however.

So, if i would upload only mp3 file, i can upload it on zippyshare and give a tracklist in contest topic?
Also gout other question - could i include into contest post something more than download links, e.g. few words from me? :)

Correct as long as there's a download to your set and a tracklist (attached to the .mp3 or in the post itself) it's ok :)

And of course a lil extra text/story is allowed. You have to sell your set, so people download it. The more downloads, the bigger the chance you get more votes. :)

No new rules anywhere... I'm just giving tips.
We're not going to write a whole disclaimer for this opportunity we are giving to the community.
It's not really hard to understand if you read, right?

Just be sure to post a download link within the first 50 at 00:00.
Tracklist must be included, but doesn't matter if it's in the post, package or both.
You can add a story, bio, whatever to the post if you think it stimulates your downloadcount and therefor voting chances.

JUST BE SURE NOT TO EDIT YOUR POST, CAUSE THE RULES STATE NO EDITTING OR ELSE DISQUALIFICATION.

I hope I made it clear now...

I'm sure you have done your best! The important thing was have fun making your own set! :friends:


Now...all is in the hands of the community! I'm sure will be win the best set and not the best "DJ NAME" or the best tracklists! ;)

well the tracklisting is also there for something, it shows your style but I agree that if you've put randomly tracks in your sets it's :S

I personally put tracks that makes me go :dance: or :music: or :super:. And I hope that it will mekes you go like this too.

And the fun comes by itself.
