  8. So guys what did you think of the quality of the songs in the nf in general (or at least the 3 that didn’t make it ) ?

    The last few days I was kinda not so sure I should have hosted it and I was thinking I should have sent “Rosegardens” directly but it’s ok I do like the winning song a lot as well🙂 !

    • You had the winner third… Maybe your votes should have counted more (let’s say 25/%) instead of 1/15 = 6%😦

      • You want to change the result don’t you😛 ??

        I do like all of the songs I submitted in the nf but they were of so different styles all that I could not decide which one to sent, it was not matter of quality for me..That said, I kept listening to the song all these days along with you guys who voted and I grew more fond of “Rosegardens” as days gone by, without that meaning that I did not like the rest.

        Maybe it will make a comeback as an internally selected entry in a future contest I don’t know haha😉

        But for now I am fully behind Valerie and her sentimental french ballad🙂 !

      • No you got me wrong. I don’t want to change the results. It’s fine especially now you clarified you love all of your submissions. I just stated that in case people have a clear fave in their own NF they should give beforehand an extra boost on their own votes in case they are afraid other voters could overturn their desirable result.
        Coming to think about it again, why bother with a NF when you do have a clear fave you want to send? But again many people like me, are in fond of NFs of one artist-many songs as a way to introduce one artist to another !

      • True but it developed into a favourite late in the voting window for this nf and it would seem unfair to suddenly put such a rule, it would seem like manipulation because my “favourite” by that point entry was not winning and the nf would lose its credibility.

        As I said above I developed a more clear favourite a few days before the voting closed so it would be unfair to those who bothered to vote to cancel the nf🙂

        If I get the country I aim for next time around you will most likely get an one artist-many songs kind of nf😉

      • “it would seem like manipulation”
        True that’s why I said beforehand. I mean if I were to organize a NF and had a clear fave I would clarify to people bothering to vote that my own vote counts more (and I would add the exact percentage) beforehand.
        In your case (a fave growing later on) you acted perfectly normal and fair!
