    What's the point of a contest section without making people feel special? Think about it... If you want contests where people actually get involved and feel part of something i don't think random posts will work very well. Having a specific place might work better, it's just what i feel, maybe i am wrong.

    noobs tend to turn into helpful people if you give them the chance, if you shut them down right away they will just leave. The character thing i didn't realise was an option for these types of forum but that would be pretty easy. Have you ever gone on a song to leave feedback and found it hard to find anything to say about it? Is it a good idea to force people who have nothing to say to write that many characters and give bad advice they're not confident in?

    If i was looking for attention this certainly wouldn't be the thread i'de be posting in. I was trying to share my experience from the other side of that post count thing and the character limit. Believe it or not i like this site and would like it to get better, not worse.

    Have you checked out the flip this battles? https://www.futureproducers.com/foru...attles-472935/

    It is at battle no 8 and is run almost entirely by the previous winners (we do some nudging here and there and move it along, but that is not a big deal)

    Have a read through and understand how this came about

    Similar things are possible for any other contests; all it takes is a consensus from the members and a willing moderator or two to help out

    N00bs should be encouraged to participate in a positive manner rather than just drop cr@p to get their postcount up.

    By initiating a minimum char limit they must be genuine about the piece of music they want to comment on; i.e. if they are picking random songs to comment on then the feedback is "useless" anyway; better to encourage them to write about stuff that actually moves them.

    This will force them to address individual aspects of the track rather than a generic "it's cool" or similar.
