Hi there!
I’ve entered the C. Willits remix contest, but my remix is 5:04 minutes, and it’s only supposed to be 5. The last part is actually silence, so i wondered if i can cut the silence out and upload it again without entering the competition twice?

Thanks

5 minutes rule is a bit weird for me. Someone has no imagination…this track has 60 bpm originaly, damn slow. I would advise to think more carefuly next time with setting final track time. Or its MTV? make it 3 minutes then..

I feel kinda the same, but still. A rule is a rule and that’s why i asked… Anyone?

I’m not part of the contest (I’m just a lowly coder and admin guy) but personally I wouldn’t take any chances and just re-upload.

I’m assuming you can enter more than one upload so you don’t have to worry about ‘re-entering’

The way it works: At the deadline I take a snaphot of all the entries (I make a copy of what’s on ccMixter) and that’s what the judges get. If you upload(s) are there great, if not, it won’t be part of the contest.

makes sense?

From official conest folks:

“if people submit remixes that are longer han five minutes, they have unfortunately not followed the contest rules and are not eligible to win”

sorry bout that…
