Are you stuck in your house and/or fallout shelter waiting out the coronavirus epidemic? Has the novelty of hording toilet paper warn off and you find yourself in need of entertainment? Don't risk your health by going out in public! Stay indoors and record a song for SG Karaoke!

A few things to note

  1. all singers will be anonymous to prevent favoritism when it comes time to judge the contest
  2. after the contest, I will reveal the identity of all contestants I have the permission to reveal.
  3. no fighting, no killing each other (even temporarily)(even if you really want to)(even if you apologize later!)
  4. Recording will be done on their own computers. I suggest audacity (http://audacityteam.org/) for this. the songs will be uploaded to a folder on google drive. Contact me on steam or on the unofficial SG discord server and I will send you a link to a folder you can upload to.
  5. To verify authorship I ask that the singer to upload a vocal only track. if they want they may also upload a mixed track.
  6. Singers may submit as many songs as they like.
  7. No touching your face
  8. These are your songs, I will take down any song at any time by the user request , I will also comply with any copyright take down requests if I revive them.
  9. All participants will be given a list of invite only giveaways that they can enter. If anyone wants to contribute a giveaway contact me and I'll add the giveaway to the list.

About naming conventions When upload a song I'd like you to name it "song-artist-VOCALS" for the vocal only submission and "song - artist-MIX" For example if you sang "Mad World" by Gary Jules, you would upload "Mad World - Gary Jules - VOCALS" I would also appreciate if you upload a text file with your steam name, the favorite song you've covered, and if you want you name relieved after the contest ends.

Can we have a theme? Might I suggest - "songs that make you feel good".

Open enough for broad interpretation, but still relevant as a response to the current situation, and specific enough to help narrow our focus when deciding which songs to contribute.

Ha, I personally find karaoke in general makes me happy. but if you like go for it! I'd love to hear what song makes you happy,

If there are enough people that want to do this I may think of a bonus prize for the best happy song, probably a game from their wish list. all I would need to do is have two wrap up threads with different polls... I'm not sure if the results would be any different though. I guess time will tell

Frankly, I think Ceebers has already suggested a perfect theme by choosing "Mad World" as an example (although I have to say that I like the original version so much more).

Ha, that's a good point! Hard to think of something more appropriate right now...
Although i remembered it was the same example for formatting from the last karaoke, so didn't take it as a suggestion 😁

Yeah.... that was the first song submitted for the first karaoke contest. .. I tend to reuse things because I'm lazy (or efficient if you prefer)

I moved the thread from general to the puzzles & events forums as it seems a better fit there.

FTR Mad World is by Tears for Fears. Jules only covered the song (but it's famous because of Donnie Darko, ofc).

I should figure out the end date. the trouble is I end the karaoke contest just as the steam summer sale starts, but I'm finding conflicting information on when that is.

time for another SG Trivia bump

I have sent an email to Gabe Newell. AKA Gaben the CEO of steam,asking for some tech support (which he provided) and inviting him to a karaoke contest (I don't know if he listened to any songs though)

Bump for a new song added and for the end date being added. I still couldn't figure out when the steam summer sale will be so i just picked a date over a month from now to end the contest. This should give the procrastinators (you know who you are) time to record something.
