The decision which artist is featured in a release is done by our community. We open a poll with possible Artists two weeks before the release. It is open for anyone with a forum account to vote (including developers and artists). After 10 days the poll is closed and the artist to promote will be the one with the most votes. We will then inform the artists about him being featured.
We reserve us the right to disqualify participants from a vote if we suspect vote forging (with or without the use of bots). In repeating occurences we might remove an artist from OpenStage as possible participant completely.
