      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

Don't you mean 192 kbps? Lol just kidding. That sounds good to me, it seems like the entries have leveled a bit. Why not?

So who wants to extend the voting period so more people can vote? I know I can't vote on Fridays, but I could on Thursdays.

Let me know what you guys think about this schedule, all it does is add Thursday as a voting day:

Submission deadline - Wed Midnight

Voting - Thursday/Friday til Midnight

Sample picked ASAP Saturday

Beats in by Wed...and so on...

let me know!

I'm down with this -- it seems more sensible than taking away weekend days from people who may only have that time for beat making etc. That being said, I usually only have monday or wednesday evenings to make beats, so hopefully nobody is in a similar situation but their day was thursday... =)

It seems that MOST beats are up before wednesday midnight anyway. It should probably be midnight PST instead of EST though -- Something to note for whoever creates the download archive -- in #127 there were a few late submissions that were not in the download archive.

Whenever you click 'create zip archive' it over-rights the last one. so if you are posting a beat, and see there is already a archive, get it recreated under the 'share/zip' option..

Submission deadline - Wed Midnight

Voting - Thursday/Friday til Midnight

that works better for me

1. lol Forrest Bump - thanks but i dont drink

2. new voting/beat battle structure is perfect.

3. I just got my pc cleaned of virus and crap and i transfered all the fruity files from my external back into ithe pc drive and some of the vsti's are not working - gaaaaay. and now something is wrong with my fruity (FL 6) the beat i just recently made is not opening up due to some error. apperantly its a corrupt file? Wtf? grrr. think i need ot upgrade my fruity.

luckily i rendered the beat before the file effed up.

nothing special tho but this fruity error crap is annoying. wtf.

TBH that doesn't suit me at all. I don't use the internet at weekends, so I'll still be getting the sample on Monday but I have a day less to finish it.

Ideally, I'd like the new sample to be posted on a friday, so I can work on it over the weekend then submission and voting on wednesday and thursday

but i can put up with it, it's ok
