  1. This is a little heavier than I usually like my music...but it has a fantastic energy, and the ending really ties the whole thing together. Very nicely done!
  2. Mad props to all the artists on this album. Not a fan of some of the decisions behind the album's release, but as always, the music itself is top notch!
  3. Thanks, this did end up working for the whole download.
  4. How do I get on another mirror for the full zip? I only see one download link for the full zip, compared to the 4 mirrors for the individual MP3s
  5. I'm on a school ISP, and they have blocked all torrenting activity (their reasoning is that [they think] the only uses for torrents are illegal ones) so I'm stuck trying to download the zip file. On my 8th try now and I'm still getting this "client or server error".
  6. So not only did we have to gather an arbitrary number of Likes to get access to maverick.ocremix.org, but the zip file for download on that website is completely inoperable. I've tried to download it no less than 6 times so far, and every single time the download "finishes" at near the 50MB mark and won't unzip. Since we went out and promoted your site for you, can we at least have the album that was promised as a reward?
  7. I strongly doubt I'm going to regret making my feelings known about a hamhanded publicity stunt, and I resent your tone that I am inferior to those who will endless perpetuate this sort of stunt by begging all their friends to go like a Facebook page.
  8. I'm not going to go out and pester my friends to Like a Facebook page for a site they've never heard of. I Retweeted the original Tweet about it, and my Facebook friends can see that I Like the page. That's the extent of the whoring I'm going to do for this place.
  9. I agree with this post wholeheartedly. If the website staff had been polite and courteous about this whole thing, I would have stopped at being mildly irritated at this campaign, but as it stands, I am actively upset and will be unLiking the OCR Facebook page as soon as the album is out. I'd withdraw my Like now, but I do not wish to delay the album even more for other fans. I love the music that gets put out here. I love all the awesome album projects and am grateful for them. But this whole incident has made me realize...I like OCR music. I do not like OCR.
  10. Not an alternative, but a supplement then. Unless you would prefer all fan promotion to go SOLELY through facebook?
  11. I recommend things like flyers and IRL Word of Mouth as things you can suggest to people who like this site. A way for people without Facebook to contribute. It doesn't have to "count" toward anything (as I feel this 27,000 Like campaign to be misguided from the start) but rather just be something people do out of the goodness of their hearts. The staff of OCRemix could even participate by designing a standardized flyer people can print out and post. And yes, I am for real.
  12. This is some of the hostility and disrespect I'm getting from people here. I post a simple, polite, well-worded request for OCRemix to be more transparent about this whole drive. Liontamer, who is listed as not just a moderator, but a SUPER moderator, responds with some of the most thinly veiled sarcasm I've ever seen, and KyleJCrb (Who isn't a forum mod, but is a co-director on a couple albums) calls my intelligence into question in a roundabout manner. "...why you need a press release..[for] this obvious fact." On the flipside, I do want to commend Bahamut (another moderator) for replying calmly and rationally in this thread. His post is very long, so I will not be quoting it here, but it is the first post on page 7. Since he has a demonstrated a much better ability to be mature and deal with fan relations in a polite manner, perhaps he should be OCRemix's next "Super Moderator" I again say, I have no problem with OCRemix wanting to increase the popularity of the site, but this particular campaign bothers me. Level 99 (another mod) makes the following statement: If Facebook, Twitter, etc are all valid ways to get the word out, why is this campaign limited to Facebook? Total up all your Likes, Followers, Fans, ReTweeters, whatever, and you'll hit your 27,000 mark easily. As it stands, people who don't use Facebook are being unfairly barred from accessing this hyped album. Some people just don't care for social media, some minors are forbidden to use Facebook by their parents or guardians. They currently have no way to "help stop Sigma" and get this album released. There should be some manner of "alternate Like" for these users, such as telling some friends at school or work or posting a flyer on a public bulletin board at a grocery store or community center. I again request more transparency with this advertising campaign. Stop the cheeky "IT'll take 27,000 Likes to defeat Sigma" stuff and make a simple press release that says something to the effect of "OverClocked Remix would like to increase the popularity of our site, and to further that goal, we are requiring 27,000 of our fans to "Like" us on the social media site Facebook." I also request that the moderator staff exercise more care and respect when dealing with the fans. Either designate a single person to serve as "fan relations" and have all statements come through them, or just simply respond to complaints calmly and concisely without resorting to sarcasm or accusations of entitlement. EDIT: See, this is more of what I'm talking about. Instead of responding with any kind of care and support for the community, another moderator comes back with passive-aggressive hostility.
  13. Wait a second. Another moderator said earlier that this drive was targeted at people who were already ocremix fans but hadn't liked the Facebook page yet. Now you're saying it's for to spread the word to people who haven't yet heard of the site. One of the artists on the album put his track on YouTube because he was told the album was coming out today, not that the publicity drive to get a release would start today. The level of inconsistency coming from the "higher-ups" is quite troubling. Instead of this "oh no free the page from Sigma" stuff, could we please just get a clear and definite press release staing the reasons for this artificial delay to the album's release as well as a clarification on what purpose this Like drive is meant to fulfil? Look, I understand that you want to make this site bigger and better, but sending these mixed messages and withholding content from your fanbase isn't the way to do it.
  14. Might I suggest making the giant banner on the front page actually link to the Facebook page that needs to be liked? The average internet surfer won't take the effort to click through to the youtube video then click through again to the Facebook page.
  15. Agreeing with this as well. Its not a huge deal...but no other OCRemix album has had any barrier to entry other than waiting for the release date. Setting a gate of "Go pester 3000 people to come like the OCRemix Facebook page" looks more like a publicity stunt or a cry for attention rather than a legitimate desire to spread the word about OCRemix. That said, I'm still pumped for the album and eagerly await its release.
