- sending a PM to MfM on psycledelics site
- When voting everyone has (number of entries * 2) points to distribute freely between the songs they like the best. The total sum of the distributed points must equal to the number of entries * 2. In this competition that equates to 46 points.
- For the random award you just have to write one number between 0 and 100 on the bottom of your mail/PM in the following way:
|random award : NUMBER|
- Remember, it's not good sportsmanship to vote for yourself ;)
- First of all you must submit your song to the psy section (not mp3/ogg) of psycledelics (a link to the mp3/ogg version of the track must be inserted on the song's description page)
- Now you can add your song on the compo8 page on the wiki (in the added songs section) in the following way:
|ARTIST NAME - SONG NAME (MP3)|
(with a direct link to song's description page on psycledelics on SONG NAME, and a link to the mp3/ogg on MP3)
- HERE the list of prizes and the explanation of how to "Random Award" works :
One of the following plugins:
|HOW TO CHOOSE|
- First position can choose from one of the plugins in the list above.
- Second position can choose from the remaining 3.
- Third position can choose from the remaining 2.
- Random awards winner will get the remaining plugin.
|RANDOM AWARD :|
The random award is a prize that you can win, no matter how good or bad your song is. Here is a small explanation of how we will elect the winner of this prize:
- When receiving the songs for the competition, a number is given to the participant (1, 2, 3...) in the order they are received.
- When a user votes, it gives points to his/her favourite songs, and separately, a line with "Random Award:" and a number between 0 and 100.
- When we get all the votes and we have the three winners, we remove them from the list.
Example: Say we have participants A, B and C, and the order in which we receive the songs is A, C, B. (A = 1 , C = 2, B = 3) Then, if A wins one of the three prizes, it is removed from this list, and the list becomes: C, B (C = 1, B = 2).
- Finally, we will make an addition of the values of all the Random Awards, do a modulus by the number of participants (participants for the random award), and add one to the value.
A modulus is getting the residue of an integer division. (9/5 = 1, residue 4. 9 modulus 5 = 4) since this value starts at zero, we add one.
•voter 1 : 35
•voter 2 : 74
•voter 3 : 31
•voter 4 : 1
3 participants remaining for the random award.
35+ 74 + 31 + 1 = 141
141 modulus 3 = 0
we add one to the result 0 + 1 = 1
