Ah, sorry, I can redact or edit my post if necessary. I wasn't really meaning to say any one person's song is better than anyone else's before voting time--it's just me being a party pooper on my own party. xD ...In the respect that, simply, if I had more skill I'd I guess be more adventurous. Apologies. Wasn't trying to cause a bias against my own or for favor of other's work, other than to say everything up there so far, even the non-voter ones are good and am glad the turn out is, uh...damn what's a good word. Formidable? And creative. :D

Sorry, too, cause I was under the impression other people were voting outside of who entered, not we ourselves who've entered.

Again wasn't meaning it to somehow sabotage my damned self, even though I frequent that in all my ventures. xD

It's alright.  Up to you, it's just a guideline, really.  Not a huge No-No like voting for yourself.  Occasionally, very rarely we get outside Voters.  That's why PRC and MnP try to incentivize people to vote, but it only works if there is 3 or more entries (People who vote get a +3 score, but again, it only works if we got at least 3 viable entries). 

For 2 Entry rounds, regulars who didn't submit something, sometimes hop in to vote.  Not gonna name them, so I don't shame the ones who don't bother to Lmao.  Crap I am so tired.  Arg.  Can't sentence-make.  

Self Sabotage is my middle name** Nvm the self comparison comment I had here before...  Now is a time for more self reflection and anxiety than ever before.  Take care of yourself VQ! :3

Yikes... The competition is fierce from the looks of things...

Guess I've got my work cut out for me. Makes me feel like I should withdraw or work on it more, but at the same time feels like I can't do much more with it.

...Really jealous of Soup's now. :/ If I had more skill I would've done Phendandra Drifts or Chozo Ruins in a similar tribal motif... >_<

No! Stick around, please.

I'm flattered, but I understand. It is intimidating to have your work standing with other mixers. Comparison is rarely kind. Last year, I worked with Wassup T to make something for the OCR Christmas album. We had fun, but there is/was some seriously impressive stuff there. But please, don't let the comparison stop you from mixing. Keep moving forward, make new songs, learn little by little. You'll keep getting better.

Look man, I have a different interpretation of what a Meat 'n Potatoes remix is from Hoboka (I like to think of it as more of throw your initial idea at the wall and see what sticks kind of thing). However, that does not stop me from entering these competitions. In fact about a year ago one of the MnP remixes I did actually made it to OCR*. At the end of the day the important things with these competitions is to have fun. I use this competition more as a production test bed in terms of how quickly I can get an idea down and get something of decent quality out. While it may not seem like it, each completed track that you do no matter the quality of writing or production or whathaveyou is experience, whether good, bad, or neutral. With experience you know what works and what does not work. You just slowly build up this palette of preferred tools and techniques that work for you. Maybe you like to mix in LCR. Maybe you prefer to use simple libraries or synths over complicated ones. Maybe you have a preferred set of plugins that you put across every track. I dunno. Use these friendly competitions as test beds to see what sticks and what does not ;)

* - There is a bit of a story here. Initially it got rejected or whatnot from an initial listen by a judge (or something to that effect). At any rate I disagreed and requested that it be sent to the panel regardless and it turned out that in general my suspicion was correct that it was more minor things that needed to be ironed out. After some rework and whatnots I resubbed it and it made it to OCR.

I haven't listened to the entries yet, but we're all just here to learn and have fun. I've learned a ton by doing these over the last few years. Entering these competitions should be a low stress thing, even if the amount of work and love you put into your entry is high.

I haven't spoiled most of the round for myself either.  I tend to wait for the Voting Stage...I've only listened to VQ's entry so far and it is a sign that this round'll be one to write home about...Totally didn't break the golden rule there.  Anyhooo... Time for me to slip into my skin-tight Samus Zero Suit and finish up my Rundas Remix...Preferably with all the mirrors covered.  

4 days to go to finish up and ride the Hype Train to Metroid Glory!!  The baby.  The baby.  The BABY...DAMNIT OTHER M!!  Not again!!  Now where did I put my Ritalin?
