Ringtone Challenge is open to all mobile9 members

Here are the rules to the Ringtone Challenge:

...take time to read them carefully...


1. The ringtone can't be the original song - it has to be mixed, remixed, altered somehow. You can't just crop the song to 30 secs, and post it here for the challenge.
2. Allowed lenght: maximum 30 seconds
3. Ringtone title must follow the line below:
"Your choozen title" - RC Week "XX"
4. One ringtone per member is allowed.
5. Your entry must be new. It shouldn't be released in any other site or at m9 gallery before.


All participants must post parts of the original songs they used for mixing and write full name of the artist and title of the songs. The songs can be in any language, but title have to be translated in english and it has to contain the weekly theme. In case you don't know who is the artist or the name of the song you are suggested to not use it.

You can upload parts of songs you used for your mix on any free file host site, for example:
You can also ATTACH parts of songs in your post (example HERE ) . In that case you dont have to upload them on any other site.
-->Posting parts of the songs you used for mixing should be done before Voting starts.Failure to do so a penalty of 2 points deducted from the total points achieved in voting. Uploading of Sound Effects used in mix is not necessary.
If this requirement is not met, the ringtone is out of the Challenge.

Example how to post your mix (image is not necessary)

Participants should keep saved the data of their mix at your PC of the current RC until the closing of the voting. In case of any serious doubts of the RC managers or of any other participant/member you will be asked to provide the file data. If you don't share the file data, ringtone may be disqualified. Only RC managers have the right to ask to see the file data.


Participants can edit their entries as many times they like during the x week. Entries shouldn't be edited during the voting for any reason.
Ringtones can only be edited only if
- RC managers have told you so (fix the title, add the banner). You can't alter your entry - in this case ringtone will be disqualified.
- If you have asked for permission. Permission should be asked at the thread of the week x (in public) and put a reason. After the (positive) response of the RC managers you will have the right to edit your entry, in any other case ringtone will be disqualified.


- all participants have to add this banner at their entries
just copy this code and paste it to the description

- from RC Week 193 onwards there no restriction on the number of images you are allowed to use BUT the banner should be placed first at the description.
That means no smilies, no text and no other images allowed before the RC banner.


Members that entered a ringtone in the Challenge must write down their pick for the weekly theme.


- when you vote in the Voting booths, your vote won't be visible ... so there is no way for the members to know the current number of votes for each ringtone and who voted for who (this is to prevent cheating).

- Important: please vote for the song on their quality, not because of the author (his rank, reputation, number of forum posts...etc.)... Also, don't be friendly when voting, you can make friends outside the Challenge... If I find out that votes are suspicious (friendly voting), that ringtone will get disqualified... I highly recommend - don't be friends when voting - take time to listen to all the entries, and vote strictly on your own impression (quality, originality, effects...whatever gets to you)... And, you CAN'T vote for yourself.


Upload part of songs u used for mixing on some of free file hosting site.
I'm not advertising any of them below, but host the ringtone to any of them (which will work):
- www.yourfilehost.com
- www.freefilehosting.org
- upload2.net
- www.bigupload.com
- www.filefactory.com
- www.4shared.com

Instead of posting parts on any of this site - you can simply ATTACH them to your post like THIS

If you have participated several weeks at the challenge you can zip all files in a single folder.


- during the "Week N" opening time for the ringtones to enter the Challenge, comments are allowed (but they won't have any effect on the outcome of the voting - also, while voting, disregard the comments, vote only on your perception of the song.


- winners will be announced with the grapical view of all your votes. Voting is secret and all votes are counted by BOTH RC Managers.
- every Gold winning mix is going to be featured


In cases of cheating or rude behaviour of a participant, RC Managers have the right to ban participants from entering the competition for a current number of weeks or won't be allowed to enter the competition again.
