    Is it just only me that feel guilty for GhostOfPast, enzo2090 and Hakren??:(:(
    I mean composers tried hard to make their own music...

    It's ok, i'm sure we all had our share of good votes, good contests and everything. Sometimes our songs won't reach the hearts of people (it doesn't mean they can't do it on other occasions), but i guess thats within our expectations. That's why i'm always looking forward for the next, in which i'm already anxious. :);)

    Even if you say so, I still feel guilty to think about the result of all hard work turns out to be nothing. :(

    That's not true. Gratification isn't what we need here, it's self development and these contests help us because there's competition. Nobody will remain hungry because of "losing" such a contest.
    All I want from these contests, is for people to make music, get out of their comfort zones, learn about new genres and techniques, musically connect.

    Agreed, the only part that interests me in these competitions, in the result period is the judging, and the advise and criticism they give. Can't improve if i don't know where I'm going wrong, and self-critique will only take me so far in the learning process.
