Yeah yeah buddy, great! Are you coming to beat me up???Mister Fox wrote: ↑Thu Jul 23, 2020 01:58 CESTThe language is not even close to what you consider "vague".
The Rules and Guidelines are clearly laid out and written in easy to understand English. It is only "now" after the recent announcement, that they are problematic. In fact, they are always problematic if I somebody has to step in and enforce something. I wonder why... (yes, that was sarcasm)
I will not be arguing about this.
If I cut down on rules/explanations, then people will once more start to do whatever they want. Which previously even resulted in straight up remixes and arrangement changes. Then the Song Provider might like this edit, pick it even, which then results in even more debates from other participants as "unfair treatment".
Do you understand that we have to have a common ground for everyone? If not, then I am terribly sorry. If you are not willing to look beyond the rim of your own teacup, then I can not help you. In this case, and not written in a roundabout way: maybe the Mix Challenge audio community is just not the right place for you.
You are currently taking out your frustration on me, because of a simple careless mistake of submitting your mix in 16bit, rather than adhering to the given rule "submit in the same sampling rate and bitrate as the source material was provided in". Also because you said "in reality - it doesn't matter" (if in reality - it actually does).
Now you blame it on the "way too complicated rules" (which they aren't - considering that the majority of new users managed to submit within specs!), you insulted another forum user that tried to defuse the situation, while demanding a response from the (and I quote) "guy that run this shit" (so your second insult - which I've since removed), and you continue this behavior in stating that I "don't like criticism".
Okay then. So much for "learning from this experience".
Are you really of the assumption that the rules are just "made up", not "based on any merit"/are "nonsensical" or were improved without any feedback by former participants? Let us also ignore that I've been running the "Mix Challenge" as a whole since it's existence for nearly 7 years, and always reached out for feedback during that time. Like the last poll about the dedicated Rule Book section for example (which you didn't participate in, by the way), or responded to feature requests to implement post numbering and/or username tagging.
But It is always easy to scream from the other side of the fence "this is unfair, your concept is crap" and especially "YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND - and you will NEVER understand" (bonus: if you don't change ABC).
Even now, I still try to explain things and give you a different viewpoint to the whole situation instead of putting my foot down and stop communicating altogether. In hindsight, maybe this is a mistake on my part and I should just stop doing that, be even more strict, etc.
So I ask you once more...
Please take a step back, take a deep breath, reflect on what happened in the last couple of hours. Then we can hopefully start the conversation again. If you continue to be pushy (and this counts for everyone), I'm handing out a 2 week suspension.
No further warnings.
A-I don't understand English
B-I don't understand how audio works and what are the common formats
c-This place is not for me
D-I'm a frustrated person
E-I blame other people for my personal mistakes
F-You know what is good and what not, not like me.
G-If I don't accept that I'll get "punished"
You can cancel this message, you can suspend me, you can ban me from this small space but you'll need some sort of mental support. Believe me buddy, take care and ask for some help.
Phusy? What is pushy?
Are you sure you are ok?!
