- closing date for song submission November 1st 2009
- Contestant commenting deadline November 30th 2009
- Results announced December 1st 2009

3. Late sign-up requests may be made but will only be considered at the discretion of the GProTab team. Requests should be made by posting a topic in the GProTab Competition Forum. Late submission of songs beyond the song submission deadline will disqualify you from the competition, unless exceptional circumstances prevail. Please get your song submitted on time.

4. If you are not confirmed as a contestant by the GProTab team in the Open Competition Oct/Nov 2009: Official Sign-Up topic, you are ineligible to compete.

5. This competition is an Open competition, meaning all genres are permitted.

6. Artist name is "Open Competition Oct/Nov 2009", the folder for which will be created by the GProTab team on October 14th 2009. There is only one folder into which both GP4 and GP5 file formats may be submitted.

7. Contestants must post their tab in GP3/GP4 format. You may additionally post in GP5 format if you have that version of the software. You must not exclusively submit a GP5 version. Therefore there could be 2 versions of the same song in the competition folder.

8. Contestants may submit up to one song. If a contestant submits more than one song, only the first one submitted will be validated, unless the song is a duplicate in another format, as stated in Rule 7 (see above).

9. Only original compositions are permitted. You cannot submit a song used before on GProTab or other sites. In this competition, you are not permitted to collaborate with other contestants or non-contestants.

12. Songs may include any instrument and need not include tracks arranged for guitar, eventhough the latter is encouraged.

13. Copy/paste the following message into the (F5) information window of your tab. If you fail to do so, your tab will be rejected.
"This tab is a song in the Open Competition Oct/Nov 2009,
for more information on GProTab-competitions, please visit http://www.gprotab.net/forum"

14. Corrections are not accepted. Submit your song when you are certain it's finished and you're happy with it. You only get one shot!

16. If you fail to comply with these rules, you may have your song removed from the competition by the GProTab team.

17. The official judges are:

Collective contestant rating.

18. Contestants must rate other contestants' songs, and in addition to their rating must provide a sufficient narrative so as to give constructive feedback to other contestants. If contestants fail to rate other songs and provide a sufficient narrative, they may be penalised in this competition and future competitions; the penalty will be determined by the GProTab team. The sufficiency of the narrative will be judged by the GProTab team. By exception, leniency may be considered by the GProTab team if there is a valid reason that contestants are unable to rate songs. If they are unable to rate songs. Important, contestant's vote will not be considered as a judge, at least not unless it is abundantly clear we need to have them.

19. Contestants and judges shall use the following ratings: 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0; nothing else. A zero score is not permitted. Only one 5 star rating may be given per competition. Contestants and judges may change their ratings at any time prior to the judging deadline. In providing ratings, you must be objective, impartial and shall not give lower ratings because of personal feelings towards a contestant or a genre.

20. Contestants and judges must be unambiguous when rating songs, therefore at the end of the narrative associated with the song, please write "Rating X.X" where X.X is your rating for the song.

21. Where a contestant has submitted a song in both GP4 and GP5 formats, contestants and judges must post an identical rating and narrative for both versions of the song.

22. Contestants and judges may use their own method of rating songs. The GProTab team will not be specifying precise rules about how to rate songs, but you may wish to consider the following aspects when rating a song:
- originality
- composition technique
- rhythm
- appropriate key signature
- song structure
- quality of notation/tablature
- orchestration
- use and respect of musical language
- conformity with the specified genre for the competition (except in multi-genre "open" competitions)
- use and quality of melody/hooks/solos/riffs
- mix of instruments and panning
- general use of the GP software.

23. A topic entitled GProTab Open Competition Oct/Nov 2009: Discussion Topic will be created in which you can discuss the songs and exchange ideas and thoughts.

24. To enable easy compiling of the ratings, contestants and judges will be required to post a list of ratings in this topic, starting November 1st.

25. Contestants cannot rate their own song.

26. In the event of a tie, and at the discretion of the GProTab team, there may be a requirement for sudden-death voting. Details will be posted in this topic

27. The judges decision is final.

Re: Open Competition Oct/Nov 2009: Rules

My ratings are done. If I got it right, I should post them here to.

So:

5 stars:

Colochinni - The Departure
(The best song for me)

4 stars: (No 4,5 to make the 5 more special ;) )

Daslaf - Endeavor
The Old Man - Flow
|_JR_| - Irrelevant

3,5 stars:

Quibokk - Pensive Aubade

3 stars:

RumpyTheRubbuhChikin - Skronk
Jazzdeath - March of Sleipnir

2,5 stars:

Shade of Blue - When you are gone
Todo Winterwolf - File 32
35au1 - 8th day

2 stars:

Daniel9388 - Demise of a Generation

1,5 stars:

stuckinastorm - Minor disturbances

For explanation:
I seems to me that most people here prefer to give low ratings. At MSB a 4 or 5 star rating aint anything special anymore, because people there give it for every shit that´s submitted.
I think that the level of the competition was very high, at least in comparison with the last MSB competition. At MSB most of you deserved at least one star more.

Re: Open Competition Oct/Nov 2009: Rules

If I get time, I'll rate, this is not likely though. I will try to give a short comment on each song in this competition, but I won't promise anything.

And to make it clear, my vote/rating will not matter, I'm not part of this competition.
