I'd like to get in on this if all 20 haven't been accounted for.

EDIT: Of course, when I actually read every frickin' page I realize that all 20 have been accounted for. The first post threw me off.

A suggestion for the future that maybe the initial post has the participants and that's where you update it?

Nearly there... maybe...

Title, paragraph and cover art may be a little further off.

Just thought of this. Those already making their lists for the next tournament, you do know that it might be shorter next time, right? Just don't make it long cos then you may have to cut it down to 60 or 80 min.

I'm still of the opinion that we leave everything just as it is. And the mini games can serve for the people who don't want to deal with such long lists. But even if we do shorten it, 60?

True, there are the mini games. Yeah, 60 is too short. I just said it cos somebody suggested it. I think 80 is perfect. Single disc. More challenging to make too, than the present format!

Who said 60?! I'd rather not make a list at all if it were to go that low.

Personally, I'm with Tourist. We should keep it at 160. Realistically, there's no way I'm leaving my house for an extended period of time without at least that many minutes of music on my person.

Can we just wait until next time to deal with the time issue?

It'd be easier for people to make a list in the regular format and then have to trim it down than for people to make the shorter list and have to add to it, you know?

Honestly, we can carry the whole iPod if we were to leave the house and go to a deserted island.

Seriously, in my opinion if the mini tournaments were as frequent as the DI ones, then there is no need to shorten the DI playlist length. We can have both 160 min and 80 min tournaments. But there have been what 1 or 2 mini tournaments but 5 DIs.

Or why not keep it open ended? Make whatever length you desire! It's like a pay what you want thing.

Just throwing ideas out there.

Actually, no. Some of us may want to get started on something before then without having to neuter the fucking thing at the last minute.

I'm with LMP. He speaks the truth, with wisdom. He is the Ben Kenobi of our time.

Let's just have fun with this current game and then fuck about with the other shit after.

GAME ON.

And that it's "easier for people to make a list in the regular format and then have to trim it down than for people to make the shorter list and have to add to it" is EXTREMELY debatable. For me, it's 10 times more difficult to do the former.

Okay so far I've listened to lists by El Mel, GAF and bono212. I need more lists, people! PM me! And I'll send you mine.

Lists! More lists! More! More! Moar!

I've got a list in the backburner, too, so I see where you're coming from, but enough has already been said for shortening or not-shortening the time earlier, so why keep it coming?

I made a 3 CD list for DI3, mistaking it for a length change that only had to do with Prog Island, and had to trim it to 2 CDs. It was easy to trim, but any mistakes that were made with the creation of that list were my own fault.

After thinking about it, I think the idea of shortening the list neuters the whole idea of the tourney, at least my idea of it. It'll add more people to the fray, yes, and that's always great, but it hurts how diverse the lists can be, you know?

If we're making lists early, it's our decision and problem to deal with.
