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

Should be in the rules-topic, but since that one's still locked, I don't mind... I'll move it straight away though. Haven't checked this yet, but you do know you also have to comment the songs?

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.

Yes, that is the case, and I like it that way, honest feedback is better than friendly praising. smiley-smile

yah, since you can only give just one 5.0 stars rating, it makes everything tougher... cause then you have to rate the other songs in comparison with yer winner one =]

Not really, there can be one 5 star and the rest 4,5's, but then there would be som issues about however the judge had really done his (let's face it, no girls here atm) job...

I rated and commented every song already. I just added it here, because I read something like this in the rules.

Wish granted Rumpy, as we have no real judges, although, the deadline is extended to November 30th, no more.

Results will be announced December 1st 2009, including the master competition's allowed participants.

Re: Open Competition Oct/Nov 2009: Discussion

hey, just wanted to say I'm sorry for not commenting everyone's song, I did the comments of the "regular folks" but I'll prolly finish the rest of them by tomorrow... anyway, just wanted to let you know that I kinda don't care about being disqualified or who's the winner cause I guess the thing here is getting and giving the so appreciated feedback, not who got the highest scores.

anyway, I think that there's something that's not working here with competitions, more than competitors taking too long to submit their comments (like me xD )

I feel that sometimes giving comments is more painful than enjoyable... I guess it would be funnier for everyone to have mmm, more one genre competitions or thematic competitions, who knows... something to keep us entertained, I say this cause I knew 3 or 4 of the submitted songs before the comp started (and 3 or 4 guys already knew my song).. so it wasn't really a surprise this time, like it happened with the skelleton competition.

So I propose to have more thematic, solo or whatever comps after the master one (if there's a master comp) cause that would be pushing us to come always with new and fresh and why not, different stuff

and that's all I have to say about that :forestgump:

Everyone else did great too, especially Colochinni. Never expected someone new to come in and show us something like his piece.

And thx again to all this constructive and useful feedback. If the next comp´s again an open one I´d gladly join again. And I´ll give my best to learn from the mistakes I did this time.

Keep on!

Congratulations for all the contestants, I have discovered here a lot of talented musicians, let´s keep it on!
I really appreciate all the feedback received, and hope that mine was helpful or at least, understandable.
I´m glad that I have made a good impression on my first entry, and being most of you as friendly as i have noticed, I definitely will try to became a regular on this site.
Thanks also to Generis for all the great job that did as moderator of the competition, I guess it isn´t as easy as it looks.
So, see ya around here!  smiley-smile
