Thank you all once again for your kind words. It definitely means a lot to me.
I'm gonna take the opportunity for an announcement.
I've noticed songs are often instantly five-lighter rated in the customs section upon release, not because of the quality of the custom but to the fact that it was a custom that the person was looking for. It is definitely very flattering and I appreciate it very much that you guys are enthusiastic about my customs. Seriously.
However, I do request that at least with my customs the rating system is used as intended as actual feedback based on the quality of my customs. While I do like seeing full ratings as a result of appreciation for the songs release, ratings based on quality are more useful to me as a charter. It allows me to evaluate my charting ability so that I can keep doing what you guys like or improve what you don't.
With that in mind, anyone who downloads my customs and feels less than five-lighter satisfaction I very much request that you contact me with constructive criticism. These customs are for me as much as they are for you, which means I ultimately decide how I feel they should be charted but also means that your input makes a significant impact on how I may deliver the best of quality while trying to appeal to everyone's expectations. I don't mind seeing less than five-lighter ratings at all but it pains me that someone saw room for improvement and I don't know what that may be so I cannot improve.
So again, please give me feedback on something you would like to see changed or improved, whether you post it on the custom itself or in this thread or as a PM (the latter of which will be treated anonymously). I want to emphasize that I'm very open to criticism or ideas for improvement as long as they're not rude and I will not think of you any differently - in fact I'll appreciate you being honest. I want to bring you all quality customs and while I know I cannot make everyone happy, I sure can try dangit!
Anyway thank you all for reading and be on the lookout. There are one or two single songs that I had promised others I'd do long ago and they're close to finished - expect them soon.
Thank you all,
