Default Re: Rules/Submission Guidelines

Almost There [Standard] - Accepted
Looking back at it, the first two points I mentioned, I do agree with you on there after looking through it multiple times. I guess on my mindset, I had it set to where I was focusing on the flow and how the file would go to and fro like a story perse.

With that being said, 1:13.363, there's a ghost note on there. Not sure if its because you have the rate set to 50% but with my headphones on I can't really distinguish that 16th with any sound at all. Might have been an accidental add that could be easily removed. But other than that, the file is good to go :3

Decretum - Accepted
Accepted due to the reasons Xel gave to the file.

Dead Alus - Accepted
Sync is fixed
Fixes were made where warranted, I still disagree with the hands but I guess those are fine to be placed since they're going with the crashes.

Does the Microwave Oven Dream of Electric Sheep - Needs fixes
[ORIGINAL] https://i.imgur.com/WGXQkWB.png
[Correct PR] https://i.imgur.com/EmQkKeN.png
If the PR was 1234, and if you've sent the right version, then the intro hasn't been changed at all. And the guitar does go changing back and forth on the first four notes.

- For the jump in 9.226, I was saying that it was a ghost due to the sound of the cymbal as opposed to the jumps on 9.005, 8.564, and 8.122; the sound itself isn't strong enough to warrant the jump as it is very, very faint compared to the other cymbals
- For the jump on 35.152, that is one quiet guitar melody, even after lowering to to 50% rate and upping my volume a bit (normally have the volume set to 40 when using headphones). I still can't hear that guitar melody that you say that it goes to.
+ 1:09.023 - I stand corrected on that.
- For the two 48ths, it doesn't have a prominent sound placement for it and even if the 8th does go to the precussions, the two 48ths feels very much out of place and there. Most of the time, when I say ghost, it is due to the lack of prominent sounds in the file itself where said notes are presented.
- In regards to the solo, there are cymbals going to the 4ths that you are blatantly ignoring the jump placements for thos, hence why I was saying that if you're going to follow putting the jumps on the 8ths for the riffs, then you need to remove the jumps that goes to the cymbals. If you're going for the cymbals, then you have to layer the cymbals as jumps. You can't just simply just exchange the jumps without proper justification.
- Missing a jump on 2:31.106 if you're following the jumps to the riff.

Eternal Peace Is Nothing But An Illusion - FIX SYNC
*note: I had to change the .mp3 file because the name for it was just jumbled gibberish that my Etterna could not load the audio file properly and was causing Arrow Vortex to not load the audio file properly.
- sync is still off by a 64th and later on by a 48th
**example 1: https://i.imgur.com/3oCRFAO.png
**example 2: https://i.imgur.com/lS90OIr.png
- And I made a slight error on 6.857 but there should be another 32nd on 7.533 upon hearing that section again.
- For some reason, the sync is still not fixed at all. I'm not sure if its in regards to your global offset or what, but its not fixed and it sucks because the fixes are made in terms of the patterning and whatnot lmfao. And yes, this is the correct version that I have.

Sonic Vision - Accepted
Fixes are good to go

Another BSE update is described below. Currently, everything in this post is reflected on the BSE except for the Early Release Special Batch submissions.

Summary:
- 8 files moved over to Accepted from Pending Fixes
- 3 files moved back to Conditional Queue (Fix deadline July 29th, 2018)
- 6 files moved over to Released
- 2 fixes sent for Accepted files

James May reviewed his assigned Pending Fixes. All are Accepted, although Eternal Peace Is Nothing But An Illusion has a slight sync issue that can be resolved easily.

Default Re: Rules/Submission Guidelines

A few notable changes will be coming to batch this year. Not all of it will take place immediately, but some of it will be noticable immediately. This small write-up will go over all of the changes happening:

Starting immediately, 'Light Accept' will be known as 'Change Recommended', and 'Conditional Queue' will be known as 'Fixes Required'. This is being done to disambiguate Light Accept and Conditional Queue for newer stepartists, and also make it clear & concise what sort of action either status entails, since not everyone may know what a Light Accept could mean for their song unless they've been up-to-date on the past year of changes in batch.

Also starting immediately, will be the standardization of wait time for submissions in batch after they've received judge notes to 1 month. This means that if a file gets a 'Fixes Required' (formerly Conditional Queue) status, and receives zero response from the stepartist in that time period, it will be rejected. Likewise, zero response for accepted files will be moved forward through the batch system for difficulty rating after 1 month.

For files that do receive comments, responses, or fixes, the wait time will be reduced to 2 weeks (14 days). The 2 week reduction will not take place for already closed batches, only the open batches at the time of this post (OT15, event token, Jan/Feb) due to checkboxes being added that will allow such expediting of files in batch.

On the topic of 'adding checkboxes', there will be an added checkbox when responding to a 'Change Recommended' (formerly Light Accept) status in batch. If your song receives this status, you must read/acknowledge the notes provided by the judges by checking this box before the song can be accepted. This is being introduced to help provide a meaningful difference between 'Accepted' and 'Light Accept', and also help facilitate the initial purpose of 'Change Recommended', which was to heavily recommend fixes rather than require fixes (CQ/Fixes Required) or not worry about them (Accepted). This gives Stepartists the room to still treat the file as 'Accepted', but acknowledge judge notes/fixes in the process. Songs with the 'Change Recommended' status that do not get a response within the 1 month wait period will be rejected. This will not be enacted until judgments start coming out for the currently open batches (OT15, event token, Jan/Feb) and will not affect currently closed batches.

Furthermore, there will be a checkbox available when submitting fixes for a file that allows you to mark a set of submitted fixes as "The last fix for the song". Doing so will tell us that you are done working on the song, and we will make sure it isn't subjected to the full 1 month wait period by pushing it forward to Difficulty Consultants to be rated.

Lastly, there has been some conversation batch-wise recently about songs being rejected for song choice. After a fair bit of deliberation on the topic, we decided that the system for rejection over song choice will be as follows:
A judge finds that a particular song has extremely harsh noise or unpleasant sounds/peaks within the file. The song is then shared across all judges, for input on if it's something acceptable as-is, or would need changes to the audio itself to be acceptable. In the case where the audio itself needs changes, that information will then be relayed to the stepartist, under a 'Fixes Required' (formerly Conditional Queue) status at a maximum. If no fixes to the audio are received within the 1 month wait time, then it will be rejected.

tl;dr
Light Accept = Change Recommended
Conditional Queue = Fixes Required
Time between judge notes to rejection/accept for changes is 1 month.
It's 2 weeks if you make fixes/responses early.
New checkbox for read/acknowledging notes for Change Recommended status.
New checkbox for submitting final fixed version for all statuses.
We can/will set 'Fixes Required' status for abrasive/hard-to-listen-to audio in songs.
This will all start to be enforced once the current batches close, except for the name change of 'Light Accept' & 'Conditional Queue', that starts today.

A small change to the internal judge process has been made to help remedy conflict between song judgments involving more than one judge, specifically with judge notes containing extremely varied scores or 'Fixes Required' requirements (Before-hand known as CQ, or Conditional Queue).

I've appended the changes under 'REVIEWING PROCESS' in the Original Post for this thread, but also included a copy of what was added below for easy visibility.




When judges have independently finished their notes (for sets involving two judges):

Both judges compare their file ratings and 'Fixes Required' flags before posting.

-Discuss reasoning on any 'Fixes Required' flags. Try to come to a mutually agreeable conclusion on them. If both judges can’t agree on a conclusion, the file and Fixes Required reasonings are Direct Message'd to a third judge. (Ideally a Head/Senior Judge but can be any judge) The third judge will review Fixes Required reasonings and decide whether to apply the requirement.

-If the difference between both judge ratings on a file is 2 or more points, where one judge has given a reject rating, the file is Direct Message'd to a third judge (Ideally a Head/Senior Judge but can be any judge). The third judge will give a brief judgment, reviewing the differing opinions and deciding a course of action.

When these cases are resolved, notes are posted as usual. If applicable, the third judge's notes are included as well.
