ID Contest? What is it?
The idea is very simple. There are 50 samples in the zip-file. Each of them lasts 15 seconds (or 14 / 16 but there's really no difference). Your job is to identify them. After you have IDed some of these you must send your answer to me. You have to use PM!! Don't post any answers into this topic! Posting anything that might reveal identity of a certain sample, will get you disqualified from the contest, and hopefully a kind moderator will edit the post.
Yes. You will receive points for right answers. 2 points from correct answer and 1 point from partial. Little error in spelling doesn't matter as long as I can surely understand which track you mean.
SAMPLES: (16 MB)
You have 21 days to submit the results, so the final day of the contest is Sunday, 4. feb. 2007. I won't collect answers submited after midnight MY time (Slovenia, GMT +1), so those living western from me better cast the results a day early, just to be sure.
Have fun IDing and good luck!
9 days left to submit the answers!
and remember, even partial ID's bring you a point. also those who already casted their answers can always send me an update if they remember any more tracks
it is, isn't it!
and i decided to give prizes to winners!!
1st place: 100 frih$
2nd place: 50 frih$
3rd place: 20 frih $
hurry up people, almost half of the time has already passed...
wow! somebodey just set a new milestone. 50 points!!! congratulations!
second one is holding stady with 23, so those 50 points may not be very far anyway for anybody...
of course i will post the full list of IDs when the contest is over
Please read the rules
You are not allowed to create "Official" topics as per in point B is this section.
After talking with cheh, I decided I acted a bit rashly here and have unlocked and changed the title a bit.
Keep in mind though, double-posting, short posts or just general principals might get this topic closed or moved to the Contest Board.
thanx HoboPelican, note taken.
just reminding everybody that the contest ends tommorrow at midnight at CET + 1 time! i'll announce the results and post the full list of correct answers monday morning
hihi i'll try to do my best. How can you get 50 Points, 2 points for a right answer, i suppose title is 2 points and artist is 2 points?
not exactly.. FULL ID brings you 2 points. that means artist + title. so that's basicly 1 for artist and 1 for title. i only included originals in the contest, so if nobody writes the version in brackets, there's nothing wrong....
SO... if you write the right title but wrong artist or right artist but wrong title, you get 1 point. u also get a point if you only write one of those. so you can earn a lot of points by guessing
so to earn 50 points you have to fully ID 25 tracks or more, if not all IDs are full
and remember people.... google is your friend
quick question: should i extend the deadline?
I just spotted this today, I would appreciate it if you would extend the deadline. This looks very interesting although I am in the UK and suspect maybe some of the samples may be unknown to me (depending upon where the originator of the competition hails from) but I will give it a go...
...going to download the files now.
Dont extend the competition for me, I have just downloaded the music and I suddenly discovered how old and out of touch I am. I only recognised a hand full of those and would have to search to find the names and artists for them!
Even my wife, ten years my junior shrugged her shoulders with a blank expression much like my own.
So respect to anyone who does well with this, especially of you are approaching 40 like me!
Thank you for making me feel sooooo old.
Okay, was wrong, thought there were only 20 samples, But it are 50.
Found already 26, But i will found out more soon.
Although this is contest is related to music, it is a contest after all.
That's why this thread is moved to this forum.
SO... what are the results? how many people participated? who won?
when are you posting the next contest?
Captain Fertile, i don't think anybody's able to recognise all the tracks. even i had to ask some of my friends what track of a certain genre sould i include. so just give it a shot, you have nothing to loose. after all, alot of the tracks are really old
Helios, thanx, i was wondering where should i post it...
nimo, Juardo just took the lead, with over 70 points!! i'll be surprised if anybody beats that.
ok, since alot of people just found out about this when it was moved, and i can see more interest now, i'm gonna extend the deadline for a week. of course people who already sent their results can send an updated list if they want to.
SO NEW DEADLINE FOR CASTING THE RESULTS IS SUNDAY, 4. FEB. 2007!!!
