13 slots waiting to be taken.



WHAT: Chance to win a spot at End Of Year Countdown 2010

WHEN/HOW: On Nov 1st http://forum.ah.fm/contests-ah-fm/27805-eoyc-2010-community-contest-poll.html will be active, in which you are capable of posting a link to your .mp3/.rar/.zip/.7up. It's up to you to decide which format you pick. Keep in mind that the community is the one who decides the winners. Some people in the community might not be able to unpack certain files. Be sure to include the tracklist when you decide to pack your .mp3. If you only uploaded the .mp3 then post the tracklist together with your download link!


Example: DJ Name - EOYC Contest.zip
DJ name - EOYC 2010 Contest.mp3 <-- actual set

The thread will be open which users can post links to the sets for 7 days (Nov 1st - 7th 00:00 AM CET) thread then will be closed till Nov 21st (gives the community plenty of time to download the sets & listen to them) On Nov 21st we will create a poll with all the DJ sets that were submitted during that Nov1st - Nov 7th period... then community will be able to vote who they mostly enjoyed.

Poll will end on Dec 7th 00:00 AM CET, once the poll is closed we will choose top 13 best ranked winners.

Quick date reference:

Nov 1st - Nov 7th You post your set download links, 1 submission per DJ
Nov 7th - Nov 21st Thread will be closed
Nov 21st Polls goes online voting starts
Dec 7th Poll closes 13 winners announced.
Dec 7th - 14th Winners have time to create fresh new exclusive sets for EOYC 2010! with jingles which we will provide.


Good luck to all & most of all have fun!




EDIT:
Concerning the contest thread at http://forum.ah.fm/contests-ah-fm/27805-eoyc-2010-community-contest-poll.html: Editted posts will be disqualified, so be sure to post the correct download link! Reason is people can corrupt contest by adding in their download link later.
Also posts without download links will be deleted, so this thread stays clean and no download links will get lost in the spam.

Generally idea is great, but I really don’t like public methods of selecting the best.
I am sure like 99% of voters will not listen to all (or even to 10) dj sets. Therefore the folks, who have more friends among ah.fm community and will be the winners.

So, I want to suggest another infallible vote system. Idea is very simple: let’s just make 6 groups with 10-12 dj in each one. Each participant will get links to sets from his group opponents and also he will receive a task to name best 3, with condition that he can’t vote for his own set. All, who don`t send his selection - will be disqualified from contest. As a result we will get 12 winners (2 per group). One more can be selected in many ways, for example top-scorer among all 3rd places.

I don`t hope that current vote system will be changed, but current one is just too unfair and kinda ridiculous for me.
Hope somebody will support my idea !

We try to keep things are easiest as possible and at the same time keeping it fun for all... Remember Staff gets to listen to the sets also :) should be fun :)

good luck all :megacrazy:

I have another idea - files should be named without DJs name in and all links should be posted by someone from AH Staff. :) I know it is problematic right now because some of contestants already made their mixes and uploaded them.

Yeah, I really like the idea with the public deciding, but I fear that for example a lot of people don't have a chance at all because of the time zones. I know I would like to be in the contest, but I don't have a chance at all because I have to get up early the next day, so I can't stay up till 00:00:00 to submit my set. I think a lot of people have that problem

Everybody has to make sure that when the thread opens up at 00:00, you post ONLY the download link to the zipped file containing the TL and actual mp3 file. We are saying this because if someone posts the TL in the thread and also the link, people might be biased or attracted towards a set which has the tracks he/she likes more. So that's why like Dan said..

Example: DJ Name - EOYC Contest.zip
Link: ......

Good Luck to everyone :)

Kata.. You can't wake up 5 minutes to post your download link?
Timezone is a bullshit argument imo..

You're either sleeping, at work, having breakfast or cooking..
Every timezone has it's disadvantage for posting the download link in time.
Imo when you're sleeping is even the best timezone to be in. You can set alarm, post and go back to sleep. However at work you might not even have acces to internet.

I know, just trying to point out a few problems with it. Not saying it is a bad idea nor am I saying that no one is having more problems with it than me. I'm just saying that a lot of people (maybe) can have trouble with this.
I'll set the alarm clock and see if I can make it. If not, then I know a lot of other people will have and I am sure they will do a great job
