there are a lot of cool things i really like about this site, but my most favorite thing might be the variety of musical styles. so many different people contributing their stuff on here and it feels like everyone has their own favorite genre and style, it almost never gets boring to listen to new (and old) entries.
additionally, themed battles (major and minor) which forces people to write stuff outside of their comfort zone.


i'm also interested in other peoples favorite botb-things! c:


(i know, there might be a thread about this topic already, but im too lazy to search for it.)

For me it's simply getting to hear lot of music, improving as an artist and always learning new stuff. Pretty straight-forward answer.

my favorite part is watching people get mad when majors inevitably get extensions

by which i actually mean ohbing obviouslyyyy but also just in general getting critique and feedback and making things people enjoy

although this site forced me to make better music and brought me a lot of joy through puke's streams and the friendly nature of its community (great evenings with robyn's streams as well), i guess my fave thing about botb still is binge-playing keffie's entries

Personally, botb has given me a fresh perspective on my music again, I think it's really easy to get into the trap of just thinking that your music is absolutely amazing and just never letting yourself improve, if you've got no reference point. I felt like I was in that place before botb, where I thought that everything I made was great even though there was still a lot of room for improvement.

I haven't been making music for very long (on and off for about 1-2 years) but I think for the few months I've been on botb I've improved more than I did for the entirety of last year. This community is so lovely and supportive that I always keep coming back to make more stuff and taking part in more ohbs/majors <3

(sorry if I said more than one thing lol)

There's so many things I love about BotB, I could do a big write-up about what this site has personally done for me. I was thinking of doing that after Winter Chip XIV ended but forgot to get around to doing it...

But one thing I love about BotB is the variety of different formats to go for. It's a lot of fun to explore other tools with different restrictions in place, and those limits inspire me to get creative and find the best way to make x soundchip sound good. This site does a good job at encouraging exploration, especially with how the battles are organized.

It has anime avatars!

But in all seriousness, aside of what others have already said, it's also the uniqueness. It's probably the most peculiar and most fun one among all vintage computer music and arts-centered places with specific charm to it

The site layout was what turned me off for a long time, and I regret being a member for such a long time before actually becoming active and make crappy tunes,

So much regrets D:

I actually love it now lol

I love it when people upload their source files and I get to take peek behind the magic of it all.
Sadly I haven't seen many OHB so I haven't been able to take part properly. And the ones that I've seen are during my work hours. Would be nice to have an alert system.

I can relate to many things that were said here so in addiction to those, I guess my favorite thing is the fact that the community is the only place I feel comfortable nerding out and having cool discussions about soundchips and etc.

the fact that a few people are willing to give so much of their time and energy to both develop and moderate a community in a way that pleases most/all of it's participants, without asking for much in return.

thank you, all admins and moderators
