CC#2: Selfmade-videogame medleys

Hey guys!!  So I'm sorry for not being on as often as I'd like, school is supposed to be #1 priority here and all, but I've been wanting to do this for a long time: A videogame medley competition!

This is a longer, more complicated one, as you can tell.  Diverse orchestras are accepted, and solos are as well.  Be sure to label the separate themes and songs in the medley, and they should be around thirty seconds to one and a half minutes long, within lax parameters.  The total medley can be as long as you'd like, with as many pieces as you want.  It does not have to be a real videogame, and as long as it follows all other criteria.

Electronic music is discouraged for the sake of creativity, so no music under "electronic" or electronic guitars.  You are encouraged to name your "fake video game", and give a brief description of it.

I will be the primary judge of this competition, and will finish judging on February  23, for the sake of giving ya'll time to work on this.  You will be judged on a scale of 1-10, for effort, uniqueness, simplicity/complexity, description, and separate pieces time limit.

Have fun!  I can't wait to see what you guys have got!  (BTW if you're having trouble, taking some inspiration from themes like Minecraft, legend of Zelda series, or Terraria, all of which have full soundtracks on youtube, will work excellently for getting starting bases to work off of.)

Please post your song to this group and the link of it here.

My friend is locked out, so can't write here.

My friend Gertim (@SDG) seems to be locked out of the site, so much so that he can't access other people's scores let alone log in for his own or use forums or contact forms (and email here is routinely unresponsive).  He recently un-followed a very large number of people (nothing wrong with that) and fears he triggered a spam filter. He is at his wit's end. please contact him and or me, thanks.

RULES (Must Be Read Before Sign Up)!

Thanks for joining! If you're thinking of competing in this awesome group, there a few rules that must be announced before you sign up. 

1. No plagiarism! (No exceptions and will be removed).

2. No foul language (of any kind, includes bullying and offensive language otherwise you will be removed).

3. Must sign in first. If you compete without signing in, it makes things harder for Jay and me to ref.

4. Scores must be added to this group once completed so that we can have easy access to them.

5. NO randomly entering scores in if you haven't signed in! This will result in the unfortunate removal of the member and the score added. It makes things very hard and disorganized for us Admins.

6. Have a good time!!! :D

If you agree to these terms then type a "Y" if you agree, or an "N" if you don't agree. If you don't agree, unfortunately you will have to be removed. (These rules apply to those cheering on contestants as well). Doing this helps keep things organized and easier for Jay and me to keep things in check, and ready for a fun and friendly competition. Phew! Thanks everyone!

What do you look like?

I have lightish brown hair, that’s short on the sides, long in the middle. It’s not like a mohawk, it’s taken more to the side, and it’s not wild, but more neat. I have dark brown eyes, glasses (more of that rectangular-square style), I’m just shy of 5’10. Uhhhh what else... I’m trim... I currently have braces.
I think that describes me.

Clothing... if it’s casual, my shoes are always Vans. I’m always wearing jeans (more slim fit) cuffed, and I usually wear a T-Shirt or a button up. Usually it’s like a Rock & Republic type T-Shirt, but I also wear long sleeved more stylish shirts and nice button up shirts. My style is super casual, I like, never wear stuff with logos. I like matching my outfits and making sure stuff blends well.
Sometimes, people think it’s weird that I’m a guy that’s really into style and looking nice. But hey, just because I blow dry my hair doesn’t mean I’m weird. 😂 So, yeah! I think that describes how I look. What about you?

Why stop at 50+ ?

Why can't I get the exact total of notifications received instead of having 50+ ? (it tells me I have more than 50 notifications but I can't see the exact total, for example if I got 60 or 70 notifs or even more)

MS staff, I think it's important for us to get the precise number when there are more than 50 notifications.
