1.) To enter a song, you must cast a vote.
Sorry, no freeloaders. If you're not willing to vote, don't expect others to.
2.) All entries must be downloadable and savable, and preferably hot-linkable as well.
I want my visitors to be able to just click on a link here on this website and start downloading the song without jumping
through any other hoops.
3.) All entries must be MP3s or a similar format.
I might entertain other formats if they're playable in WinAmp, but I'd strongly suggest sticking with MP3, OGG or WMA.
I can't guarantee I'll accept any other formats.
4.) One entry per person per month.
Pretty simple, actually.
5.) No unauthorized remixes or covers.
Unless, of course, you're willing to pay for all of my legal fees when the RIAA sues me...
6.) Not all entries will actually compete.
I pre-screen all entries, and only the 5 best entries from within each genre will compete in the 3 mini-compos.
7.) You can nominate a friend's song instead of your own.
If you don't have a song of your own that you want to enter, just get permission from one of your friends and then
enter their song when you cast your vote.
8.) There is no Rule #8!
There's no file size limit, no time limit, no sample packs, and no style or genre restrictions.
I figure if I'm going to make you vote before you can enter a song, I should minimize any other silly rules. :)
