    That one's RhythmAuthors.

    This also seems like the appropriate place to bring this up, since we're past the quarantine deadline for this week. From what I can tell, it's gonna be slow this week, and I wanna explain why before people get speculating.

    If you follow things closely, you'd recall there were a few more songs being pulled before release than usual over the last few weeks. This has led to a lot of discussion on review standards and process. General consensus was, things were okay, but some things needed improvement. Some are process-related, and authors and reviewers have definitely been paying attention to those (and being a little more cautious with reviews as a result). The Harmonix folks have also worked in some more processes of their own to keep a better eye on things without controlling the community. We'll see over time how well those work, but I'm optimistic.

    Another bit that came out of this were some additional tools that community members put together. Thanks to wesjett08 and Casto21, reviewers can much more readily check a number of authoring rules and guidelines that, frankly, are very hard to spot. Most people playing songs with those issues would never know they were there, but they are issues.

    Of course, new toys means everyone wants to play. Turns out, a lot of songs had one or two spots like that, issues that would likely have gone unnoticed. Some songs had more (and I'll raise my own hand on that), some were totally clean. But for the most part, authors agreed that they were good reason to pull songs and improve them. This wound up nullifying quite a few votes (songs go back to 0% when they're revised), so songs that might have passed this week with minor concerns are stalled for a week or two and improved in the process.

    Just like any change in process, there's been a gap for re-acclimation. But the end result will be less songs pulled in quarantine (and by extension, from the store) and higher-quality charts when songs are released, both in terms of visible and invisible issues. It's not that we're being lazy or that RBN is dying or anything, just a stoppage while we streamline production.

    And it's happening on Def Leppard week, so really, you've got songs to play. :P

    I Emailed noble about signing up to be a playtester and he passed on my request, but unfortunately I haven't got a reply back yet

    Not a big deal for this week at least. That Lich King song is amazing.

    Anything else in the pipeline? Someone should bump the thread and-or wake me up when something happens. We've got to be getting close to that new ABR track.

    If I remember/understand right, there may be some Fallen Angel and After the Burial this week, but I don't know what else (and I can't even guarantee those, obviously).

    Riles, I have a tester account via AGLSolutions but I can't seem to connect to RB3 with Magma so maybe you can have it if further attempts don't work out for me.

    So, will this be the first active week that the PS3 gets more RBN songs than the 360?

    Wow, thanks guys! Glad to hear that people are excited for the track - it's been a work in progress for a while and we're pretty stoked that it's finally coming out.

    We'll definitely be releasing more RBN tracks in the future. I recorded and mixed World Gone Dead, so I have all the stems for the album available. What songs would you like to see?

    On a side note, I don't know who manages RBNStuff.com, but that black on gray is horrible to read, especially on an LCD monitor.
