Yeah but it's not the same as having a general desert island disc of shorter length! It's specific to that genre.

It was a mini-tournament in the sense that it was a smaller group of people involved (8), but yeah, it was longer in terms of playlists.

The minis will generally be used for something more specific, I believe. It mixes it up.

We should do a mini that's like the first half of LM's list--balls to the wall rock.

Yeah, that's the purpose of having mini-games. Why are you complaining?

I'd be down with that.

lol I'm not complaining. I don't mind the present format all that much. It's just easier to listen to 80 min playlists.

What I was trying to say earlier is... the people asking for shorter length next time around want the same all encompassing lists (not specific to one genre like prog or retro) in shorter format, so that it is easier to listen to everyone's lists. The mini games so far haven't done that... except for one, the symphonic album game. All others have been specific to genres, not general.

This is true.

Yeah, but the mini-games are meant to take a break from the general game format. Even the Symphonic Album Game was about having a concept and rolling with it, not as restrictive as a specific genre, but close enough. Less participants and using it as a precursor to the next DI have as much of a bearing on the length of the lists than anything else, I think.

What AB and El-Mel suggested earlier about a minimum of 80 min and max of 160 min is the best idea I've heard so far. No matter what the maximum is, I'm filling it up all the way to include as much music as possible. Nothing will stop anyone else from doing a shorter list either, sounds like a win-win.

I started that idea with a "make whatever length you desire" suggestion!

lol anyway, yeah I like that option too. I mean some people will still have to listen to 160 min lists even if they only want 80 for themselves but that's a trade off I guess.

It's really not that difficult to listen to all the lists with so much time given to do it. I mean, the competition hasn't even begun and half the lists are already available. It's a lot more time now than it used to be. And the running diaries make it even easier for some.

You need to have some structure to it, otherwise people would be making 3-4 hour lists to fit their music tastes - I'm thinking prog or jazz-tastic people.

Definitely. I had a few tracks left over, so I'm all for it.

And I really hope the min = 80, max = 160 idea gets picked up. Currently, the minimum is probably 100, but it's frowned upon go that low and generally not done. If it's officially made 80, the lists will be more varied, and it'll spice up the tournament.

yes.

yes.

yes.

something I'd actually have a chance at winning

As for the min and max thing, sounds good to me. People should be allowed to do shorter lists if they want. it shouldn't be "frowned upon" or whatever, because a shorter list does not automatically equal less effort.
