Hey, I sure hope this is one of those threads that are ok to be necro'd...

Question: I have a few remixes that are part of official OCR albums, but I was thinking of possibly improving them and submitting to the panel. Is it okay to do this?

Of course!

One of my regular listeners to SEGA Mixer Drive spotted this error on the VROOM Wiki page last week - no mention of Last Wave as a main source, and as a result Magical Sound Shower got listed twice.  I believe I tried to ping about it in the Discord, but I'm not quite too sure if the message got through.  Just a heads up D:

AFAIK, message wasn’t sent to me or I would have gotten it. Gotted.

Are you guys considering postings remixes from dead projects (i.e. projects that haven't been picked up or updated for months/years)? Or are you looking to revive those at some point?

I reached out to them J's a few times, saying "this project is dead, please post it according to the regular schedule". Whether or not a project is actually dead is not always easy to determine though, so YMMV.

Yeah, just let me know in a DM what you have a question about, and we'll investigate it.

Would something like this be okay for the site?  I was wondering how one would remix the DK Rap song...and none other than Brentalfloss came up with the answer.  Still wanted to know what joojes thought.  I'm sorta on the fence about it myself.

 

 

I don't have my headphones on me at the moment, so I'm not able to size up the differences in the instrumental vs. the source tune, and I'm not hearing the production quality (it's likely solid; trust but verify). That said, there's nothing inherently wrong with this arrangement approach; it keeps the source tune's melody and does something different with the lyrics; it would just be a matter of the instrumental parts standing apart enough from the original. The lyrics being comedic and risque aren't relevant. Other than all that, maybe you can clarify what's making you question it being something that would be "okay" for OCR's standards.

I've usually been checking this thread for info on submissions currently in the judging process, but it seems they've stopped updating it. Is there some place I don't know about where this can be checked?

I have the utmost appreciation for updating the queue thread. hmmhowtomakethisaquestion ... Were you aware of that? :-D

Don't update it! Let their curiosity fester make them go crazy, as it has already done to me!!

It used to be that it took a year to get a decision, now it takes 7 months just to update the thread.

Indeed! We work in reverse. :-) (Working on this.)

In this context, my bad grammar , "gotted," was intentional. :-)

Ah. 

EDIT)

Tried avoiding double posting, so hopefully this edit takes.  I um...couldn't perfectly emulate the mix from the MP3 to the WAV due to various issues (like a missing mixer etc).  Also, I kinda spammed Liontamer with a bevy of WAVs, but the last one I sent is probably the closest to being faithful to the MP3.  If it needs work, please advise.  Thanks!

Hi Judges :)

This site has been around for quite some time. Judges / other staff have probably come and gone while going through all kinds of stages of life since. My question is: how "healthy" is the current "administration". Are you guys still managing? Is judging and maintaining the site still do-able? Are you guys still happy?

That there's still new remixes coming out is probably a good sign. :) Are there any particular needs right now for the site and to keep the judging process running smoothly?

Thanks to everyone who's involved for their contribution!

Good to hear :) (Sorry for the late reply)

Can we get an update on the "Currently in the Judging Process" post? The last update is from a while ago now.

Also: I have to say, it is a bit painful that the judging process can be so slow. I understand that this is all on a voluntary basis and that there's lots of entries to work through. Nevertheless, I think I've been waiting for almost a year now to get my submission judged and at this point it will probably be extra painful to have it rejected. Since it has been so long, going back to it to work out potential issues raised in feedback will be tricky. And wouldn't want to have to wait another year after re-submission.

Side question: is the "meet the judges" post currently up to date?

A rejection's not meant to be painful, but sorry for the wait; it always too long, and something we're actively working on. I've moved your particular submission out to Judges Decisions; if/when you resubmit it, all resubmissions do go back on the queue as soon as we see them. I always appreciate any nudges for updating the judging process thread too.

I wasn't aware of a Meet the Judges post, but if we have one, I'd be happy to ask current judges to add their thoughts into it.

Thanks for the update!

It looks like my submission got rejected indeed, but I'm not taking it as hard as I expected I would. The feedback is very respectful and thorough. I actually feel motivated to go back to the track and improve it. So thanks guys! :)

It looks like I was thinking of Evaluators rather than Judges, but perhaps the Evaluators list can use an update as well. :) It is in this thread: https://ocremix.org/community/topic/42695-what-is-evaluation-and-when-do-i-use-it/ . Anyway, maybe a Meet the Judges post can be nice to have too. I'll leave it up to you guys.
