hey since it's easier for me to do it than sincx, i'll be hosting a vote synclisten for the entries around when due will happen.

i will be playing them in a random order so strategically naming your song will not work..........

i'll be playing everything in the latest openmpt with no interpolation but if you want other software/other interpolation, write that in the comments section/instruments section of your song (i will be also reading those during the stream**)

**
[17:42:48] <shinichim> inb4 someone puts random code in the comments just for you to read
[17:45:14] <golgi> i am Not reading that this time
[17:46:04] <golgi> i read that stuff during gigantic botb major syncs because those are like 15 hours anyway but s3xmoditmania is like maybe an hour or two max

VOTEPACK: https://s3m.it/pack/801

Votes are due JULY 13TH at 14:00 PT / 21:00 UTC!!

FOR VOTING:

Voting shall be done via email. I will be using the same email used for sample submissions: s3x5samps@gmail.com

You are to rank the songs from your favorite to least favorite, and send me this ordered list. If you entered, your own song should be either excluded or placed last (I can see who made what so no cheating!). If you didn't enter a song, you can absolutely still vote!

So that I can easily keep track, when you send your votes the subject of the email MUST follow the following format:

R1VOTES [NAME]

where NAME is exactly the name you submitted your song under, if you submitted a song. Otherwise just use the name you wish to be identified as in the vote log.

Remember that there IS A PENALTY for not voting!

OH! And if you want to leave comments about the songs and/or author guesses, include them in the email as well! They may be read on the results stream :)

Just as a note, some people (myself included) find it helps to score each entry from 1-100 and then just sort them when done to save the trouble of manually ordering a list, for anyone put off by s3m.it's system.

score by 1-1000 (or even 1-10000) because I had to dispute a few ties in the 80s range :c

or be stupid like me and use the initial impression scores as seeds, then throw them into something like challonge where you can run a double elimination or round robin tournament in a quest to see which song you liked the best aaaaand no one's paying attention ( ゚^゚)

I scored out of 100 but it ended up basically being out of 20 instead because wow it is hard deciding if a track should get an 87 or an 84

Still was a lot easier than manually reordering a list though

yeah if you're using anything more than a 20-point scale i think it's hard to meaningfully distinguish between similar values

meaning that the pigeonhole principle is in effect and i'll need to break at least 16 two-way ties

DEAREST SIRS:

GALAK SEA: After a consensus on IRC, it has been decided that since it was my fault for forgetting about daylight savings, you will not rank in this round, but you will be permitted to enter round 2.

BLASPH: This is tougher because you've provided no actual evidence of having made a song within the deadline time. If you can prove to me that you did indeed do so, and if others agree that the song is of good enough quality to deserve a pass, you will also be given this treatment. You have until tomorrow at midnight UTC at the latest to do this (no exceptions).

a VOTE STREAM will be hosted by me at 14:15 PDT/21:15 UTC!

*** warning not safe for kids ***

it will be a HEART STOPPER and a MOUTH DROPPER, watch the votes being tallied and populated in REAL TIME as the tides shift and sway. one second they're in the green and the next they're down in the orange! careful not to hit the red lest you be eliminated!

the TOP 26 contestants will advance to the next round, ready to embark on the next perilous trail of lo-fi, dirty, and even unusable (?) samples, while the rest will be taken back to base camp for a year long rest.

come chat with us on the irc! #s3xmoditmania5 @ irc.esper.net (you can also join via the botb chat)

Well, this was fun! I'm really surprised I scored this high!

This really helped me get better at s3xmodit stuff. I usually only use the format in OHBs, but working on it for a longer period of time really helped get the effects and stuff memorized instead of looking them up every time again.

I'm really excited for the second round of GolgiFellAsleepManiaV!
