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.
There is no minimum. I don't want to have to be forced to fill out my list with songs I don't thing should be there. The way I approached my list, if I added more songs to mine I feel like I'd dilute the idea I started with.

Yeah, there's no minimum. There's never been a rule on it, although unofficially it's always been a good idea not to be too short of a playlist.

You have to have a minimum, and you have to have a maximum. There should be restrictions, but they should be made clear. If it's "not a good idea to have too short of a playlist", who's going to make an 80 minute playlist, just because they're technically allowed to?

Why do we need a minimum??? If somebody thinks their 5 song EP is perfect, who are we to judge?

Because it wouldn't receive a single vote from anyone.

Oh c'mon! I'm serious. If somebody wants to take only 5 songs (for example) with him/her to a desert island because "they sound perfect together and nothing else is good enough to stand alongside them", why would that not be a valid entry? For all you know, those 5 songs might provide a nice album experience like say, Wish You Were Here. That the person may not receive any votes is a different matter altogether.

Wait, I forgot to ask, how long would these songs be? If Axver or liamcool were putting that list together, it could easily reach 160 minutes.

All of your points are perfectly valid, really. But I still think a clearly defined set of parameters would be more likely to be explored than vague ones. That's all I'm saying.

I could make a 5 song mix that is 2 hours. Of course, that would involve Porcupine Tree (34:35), The Cure (27:51), Led Zeppelin (25:25), Pink Floyd (17:35), and Starflyer 59 (14:13).

Exactly! Start with Tubular Bells, add Stranger In Your Soul by Transatlantic (I think), some Arriving Somewhere, Echoes... and before you know it, you'll be

Cool. On the off-chance that this turns out to be the mini game, I'm already making my list.

It hasn't seemed to hinder Desert Island so far.

If we officially set the minimum at 80 minutes, I don't think it would change anything, to be honest.

I find it ironic that we had such strong interest in this edition, yet everyone is recommending changes.

If it ain't broke...

My playlist is like 70 minutes, but I'm not here to win. I made it, and I want some feedback and I want to hear some other new music and stuff, but I don't see it as much of a competition than a sharing of ideas and tastes.

While I'm here, when do you bosses want the final lists?

It's seriously 70 minutes?! No wonder you don't care for the idea of having a minimum length. I think you'll be the new record holder for shortest list by at least 40 minutes.

It's a good list, though. I listened to that shizz and it was tight.
