I noticed this posted at the bottom of the audio submission page for reveiws.

"If you are giving this submission a low score, please offer constructive criticism that will be useful to the artist. The review space is not a place for you to act like a total asshole. If your review is found to be mean, offensive, or generally not helpful, you will be banned and your account may be terminated. NOTE: Any attempt to promote an outside, unrelated website in this space will result in the deletion of your user account."

This is awesome! Not that newgrounds is that serious about banning people for zero bombing, but its a step towards this place to become a REAL place for artists to review each others work, instead of a bunch of 12 year old twits up voting video game remixes that suck and bombing anything that isnt stereotypical 4/4 dance music. Dont get me wrong, i don't all ways write reviews when i vote, but if its anything other than a 3 i think it deserves at least a sentence or two. I love newgrounds, i really do, but sometimes i wonder about the majority of its users....

Somewhere along the line my scouted art status was removed. Yes, I did have one post removed due to not following the rules, which is all fine and dandy. BUT, it was only one piece, it was removed and I let it be. Frankly, I would have liked a message from a mod telling me WHY I was "un-scouted". Most of my art had high scores actually. ( Not that you can tell now :-\ )
Ive been doing digital art for about 4 years, the last few I'd like to think I started doing rather well. I think that they should at least send you a courtesy message along the lines of, "Your art sucks", or "You broke the rules frequently". I had not added any art in some time, which makes me scratch my head. Can you be "un-scouted" for just not submitting often enough? Oh well. I hope you all die in a forest fire.

Hello NG! After coming to NG and drooling over the flash, games, and audio for sometime, i finally decided to make an account. On top of it all i even made an audio post. Ive been working with a friend of mine who plays guitar (quite well i might add) and i hope to add a few posts here within the next month or so. We have something like 3-4 songs in the works, all of them quite different. They all need some serious polishing, so don't hold your breath folks. Also i plan to be releasing more solo work also. Ta ta for now! BTW that is me after eating some LSD.
