ASK A JUDGE: While we're busy NOT voting - your questions, we want 'em

Recommended Posts

I agree that it doesn't really add a ton of information to the thread, as the NO's get the thread posted anyways.

However, I do think that having a more standard "currently.." thread update schedule would be nice. I'll be doing it Wednesdays at noon from here on out. That way people will know the day that it's updated, so they don't have to keep randomly checking it and seeing no updates. They can check on Wednesday and see what's new.

I just updated it, so it's a day early this week, but it'll stick to the schedule from here on out. :-D

Who are you again...?

Very cool. Might want to turn off the smilies in that thread, though. :P

No question here, but I wanted to say how awesome it is that Larry is doing his part to spread Christmas cheer by NO'ing all of the paneled songs with Christmas colors :-P That's painfully ironic.

Why are you guys adding August remixes when there are still remixes from July and back?

Prob. one of the perks of being a judge. They can panel their subs directly.

also, since there's only one (sometimes two) guys handling the inbox, it's more important for them to always be moving songs to the panel. At the very least, once it's to the panel, we can start chipping away at it. Before it gets to us, it's quite literally dead in the water. Any progress > No progress, wouldn't you agree? :)

Maybe... because Christmas is supposed to be happy and getting NO'd on the panel with Christmas colors is...

Okay never mind.

I'll admit, the Red and Green "NO" votes are kind of lol to me, however it's worth noting that both Larry and I are donating at least a couple hours of our holiday to moving the queue along

:)

Thanks for that, judges. It's nice to see that you guys take the time to listen to all of the submissions and vote. :)

Every vote is a step closer to and judging my mix in the queue (it was subbed in October, so I gotta wait about 2-3 months for you guys to get to it. The faster you judge, the closer you'll be to judging mixes subbed much more recently, and maybe you'll actually catch up to judging mixes subbed in the same month you're judging them). :tomatoface: (And hopefully I won't get NO'd :-P )

That's pretty much what I meant, though there's a good chance I was misusing the word "irony" because it was 3 AM :-P And it was completely in jest, I definitely appreciate the work going into keeping things moving along!

But seriously, I ask why are there August mixes being judged when there are still July (and back) mixes in the queue?! That's not fair, guys. :tomatoface:

Thanks you for bringing this to our attention. Clearly we were not aware of this until you told us, again and again and again. :lol:

We're already getting to 'em. They're being got.

I'm just concerned that people aren't getting judged when they should be. I was just wondering if you do something other than a first come first serve basis, and why.

As our queue empties out, more mixes get put in from the inbox. Sometimes mixes submitted in later months get judged first because they're easier decisions to make.

It's never going to necessarily be first come first serve.

The simplest way to put it:

Mix X gets subbed on 12/29 and gets 2Y/1N

Mix Y gets subbed on 12/30 and gets 3N

X stays open even though it's older, Y gets closed. There's other reasons mixes don't get closed chronologically too.

Oh okay, I understand now.

I have a question about an issue that's been brought to my attention, why are some remixes still gettin special treatment? I asked a question about songs being posted in order according to dates and from what I'm still noticing, the songs are still being posted in an erratic manner. There were songs in the same timeframe as mine that have been posted, then there have been some that were judged and passed long after mine and still got up =/. I tryin not to complain but it's been almost a whole year since I even sent it in my one remix and it still hasn't been posted yet, kinda ridonkulous if you ask me =/.

I'll take full responsibility for that. When people send stuff that's not encoded the right way (bitrate too high, size too large, etc.), I'm already too busy to juggle contacting everyone about fixes along with everything else on the table. So you, frankly, get lost in shuffle, and that definitely holds it up. But the squeaky wheel gets the grease, so I'm glad you posted.

Your mix wasn't encoded with the right settings. Email me (larryoji@ocremix.org) with a copy that's at 44kHz stereo, not 48. Also, feel free to bump up the bitrate if you want, now that the size limit is 8.00MB instead of 6. Once you can send that, we'll get the mix up soon. I think Pot Hocket had this stereo issue too, so I definitely appreciate the overall reminder.

I'm going to have to do a fundraising drive to pay me $400,000 a year to quit my job and do OCR full-time. Then I'd do everything super duper hooper looper fast. :lol:

QUICK!

Get the Star Wars Trilogy on Blu Ray a lifetime supply of McDonald's Baked Apple Pies!

Your new life will be great, Larry. :D

(bitrate too high, size too large, etc.),

Aren't these things addressed in the submission guidelines? I don't even think the mixes should be judged if they don't follow the submission guidelines.

I understand the clogging of remixes for the judges panel, but that's just ridiculous how the "TO BE POSTED" is even MORE clogged simply because the mixer didn't follow regulation. :P

I missed that part which is definitely my fault. But just because someone may have even missed somethin like that should not be a reason why it doesn't get judged. Anyways, I sent the song and I'm done with the matter.

That seems a bit harsh (in relation to the bitrate guideline).

Everyone makes mistakes, i've done that very same thing before.

Personally, I think they should put it conditional on bitrate change if that occurs, it would mean it would be put in the conditional queue and the remixer would then have to contact a judge to see what the problem is.

Also, while i'm posting, could you guys update the judging queue? hasn't been updated in a month ;)

Dunno if it's been answered already, but I'll ask it anyway:

I've noticed there's mixes from quite a time ago that're still in the "To Be Posted" list, including a YES'd from 2008. I understand they're never 'closed' decisions until they appear on the frontpage, but why is it that some rearrangements seem to wait more than the others to make it?
