F.A.Q
Read this before asking a question. It may have already been answered.

Q: What can be in a themed entry?
A: Anything music themed. Could be reviews, music news, new music you've made, essays on musical theory, musical history, pictures of composers or bands. There are hundreds of possibilities.

Q: Do our blog themes have to be directly music, or would a music-based character (EG: G1Soundwave) count?
A: Anything based around music would be acceptable.

Q: My premier membership is set to run out halfway through the contest, would I still be allowed to enter my blog before then, and still have it in the competition?
A: You'll be allowed to enter up until the time your PMship runs out. But afterwards you'll be unable to use your blog.

Q: Does artwork made from an album's cover art count as music art?
A: Yes.

Q: Is it okay to enter a blog that was musically themed prior to the contest announcement?
A: Yes, you can enter one that was themed prior to the contest, but since the point of the contest is to ramp up the standard in blogs, it might increase your standing to do something new.

Not messin up my nice graphics for this, also lyrics entries are the worst thing ever

I guess it could get people to improve their blag though, that's not bad.

Yes indeed.

I was referring to the probable content of the "theme entries". I'd rather people have to produce content, not just copy, paste and italicize. Music reviews, perhaps?

Fortunately I'm planning to revamp my blog anyways.

Unfortunately I'll be too busy with my FCG entry to do this in time. Still, cool theme. smile.gif

Kinda sucks that I'm completely and utterly inept at any form of artwork.

Yo dawg! I herd you like music so we put some music in your blog so that you can jam while you blog!

I might enter, but I'll need to decide on what sort of music I'd be using.

Do our blog themes have to be directly music, or would a music-based character *cough-G1Soundwave-cough* count?
    • 0
Y'know, more and more I'm beginning to think I should look into Premier membership.

I might try to enter. Something as simple as making something that plays music...
