I'm not going to come in here being combative picking apart things from your post to respond to, but I will say a few things. I posted in here nearly a month ago to this day hoping it would illicit some sort of response from anyone that knew what was going on with this, and I acknowledged that life happens. No one responded. You ask that people PM you, but at the time of me creating that post at the end of June, the staff page displayed you hadn't logged into your account in over a month, and the lack of response to that post makes me believe that hadn't changed until yesterday or today.

It's clear to me that while you may also be pushing the tournament forward now to finally be rid of a responsibility taken on a while back, it's lines like these:

I don't think I was too harsh with anything I'd written after witnessing several months of zero progress being made with no updates from anyone. If there was any progress, it certainly wasn't being shared. It may not have been anyone's intention to cause disrespect, but that doesn't mean it didn't exist.

Really happy you still have alot of soul into this game and care about getting this thing rolling, but don't give up on the community it's out of love for the game and you guys that they ask what's going on and want clarification.

Just because I wasn't logging on here doesn't mean I wasn't reachable nor that talks/things weren't happening. Discord is the most widely used tool now for basically all of us. Your post didn't make me do anything, I was already doing things. The only difference was I had to now come in here and respond to posts that were completely unnecessary.

This is in no intentional or non-intentional disrespect to simfile artists. There were files that were what 3+ years old that hadn't even been released on to the site. There was such a HUGE backlog that nothing had been done about until Dossar, AJ and I stepped in. You cannot sit here and get on our case for this when the system has been horribly flawed always.

I ask for things, I get ignored. This has been a trend for years. But go ahead, be angry with me, say things about me, attack my character, it is what it is. This tournament isn't going to be the quality I want it to be, but if I hold out to make it so apparently we get mutinied against.

My plan was to aim for winter for the big all-new content, and I'd asked for an official with in-game content to be run in the meantime. All word of that died off so I said alright screw it, I'll just do whatever I gotta do. I didn't mention it here because if I did and it had fallen through then what? I try to make sure I have things more solid before saying anything because this is what happens here. All I wanted the break to recover because a pulmonary embolism is no joke, I may be on meds for life depending on how this goes.\

Edit: wait the batch here isn't several years old, where are you getting release files that are several years old. Anything from the previous tournament batch was free to be released once it wasn't used.

You still have YoshL and I for this. I'm not that familiar with the o!m imports fyi, except for a few standouts.

There are files currently queued that were in consideration for placement in the last official tournament (lurker's Nest for instance, among others). I know that Dossar would want to rid the backlog of oldest files if it was possible to do so, but I'm sure they're still unreleased because they've been reserved for this tournament, where progress has hit a stand still multiple times and nothing has been shared with the community. If you don't think that's inherently disrespectful to those stepartists, then I'm at a loss.

Asking is totally fine, I have no issues at all ever with that. The issue here is the attacks. MarioNintendo for example, for years, has run around with the "expect delays" and other snide comments. These are honestly the things that make us go "is it even worth it anymore" AJ's completely done, he legit sounded like he was going to cry earlier in his voice. Call us pussies or whatever you want but legit, it's hurtful.

If all these people who make these comments sent over a message and said: "hey what can do to help?" This probably would have been done already.


Anyway, I have said my piece, and like I mentioned earlier I'm too old for this crap and have way bigger worries in my life than what people want to say about me here. So I will not respond any futher to those types of posts. If anyone has questions the best way is to hit me up on discord. I don't hop on the forums so much anymore because well I'm old, my memory sucks and without a notification in my face I derp out.

I remember leading up to last tournament, it was posted roughly which difficulties each division had for each round, and whether there was a song slated for each of those. If you still need more files, I might be able to help if you post something like that.

Yeah, that's gonna be the rough part so I'm hoping for an extra person or two that might be able to help on that end. Hopefully all with discord so I can have a channel for us all to chat in.

But those were free to be released once they weren't used for that tournament. I personally never reserved anything, I just asked AJ he said he asked for only one to be please be held if possible because it was perfect for D7. He mentioned "we have that backlog we can look through" but I don't recal either one of us ever saying "don't release these" if we did that's our bad but I mean there was still a time between last tournament and this they could have been released in.

So frankly, I think you may not have all the correct info. This is why people really gotta come to us directly rather than this type of stuff going down in threads. All this does is cause a lot of strain that didn't have to happen. Could've been a discussion then one concice post that explained everything.

I'm grabbing everything now so I can see where we stand. I know with this batch it was basically all like D6/7 level stuff maybe late D5. So we're likely still lacking heavily in the midsection for like late D2 through mid D5. I have to judge all the easy batch stuff I guess. Aj had some struggles with that cause he'd said most a bit harder than expected.

Aside from thinking some public heads-up could have gone a long way, I don't think the pace is particularly unusual from the activity I have witness on the site in the few years I've been around.
From a stepartist perspective, getting anything released in less than 2 years is a luxury already, so calling this particular delay a big disrespect to stepartists is a bit of an exaggeration.

I personally think taking longer to have all new files and the best possible tournament would be better but I also didn't have time to submit for easy batch in time so

Would be nice to have some information on what is still missing chart-wise and the appropriate way to send them over.
A bit of a short notice with the tournament coming up now but I might be able to get 1 or 2 easy files done in time.

I'm going through everything, it's gonna take me a lil bit to figure out what's needed where. From the quick peek in the easy batch I see what AJ meant. I think we have a major lack for D1 early D2 if you want to aim for those areas.

What most of you don't know is honestly, the majority of the tournaments I've run did not have every file slot filled out. I've had to improvise and fly by the seat of my pants a LOT. I just don't like being under all that pressure and with my health as it's been the last yearish and especially the last couple of months this isn't preferred, but I'll make it work as I always do.

With that said if people have files sitting in reserve still they haven't submitted for anything reach out to me and I'll poke as needed.

I also have a listing of the files currently in Accepted and CQ/Pending Fixes that I'll be providing. I'm looking forward to this Official Tournament

Here's the spreadsheet for the tournament of aimed for difficulties. I grabbed the one from 2016 and tried to adjust it for the scale change to 110 so I may still be shifting some numbers. I'll be turning slots green as I fill them.

The spreadsheet says stepfile slots for D4-D6 songs are available? If so, then BOY DO I HAVE A LOT (AKA - possibly 10).
