IF nobody drops out. I'm predicting at least one or two will within the next two weeks. Hopefully, it won't be a newbie, because I'm loving all of these newcomers. It's awesome.

yeah ive edited mine and I think I may be done

I'm proud of it. less than half are artists i've used before. no one will like all of it but there's enough diversity in the list that there ought to be something for everyone

i think waiting to see if people drop out is a good plan.

Are you saying you don't have enough time to listen to possibly four more 2 hour plus entries? Maybe you should have participated in the Retro Island list which was only 80 minutes

For those who don't know:

1. My list is in two CD format.
2. One disc is extremely loud, and the other is filled with quiet soundscapes.
3. 29 of the 37 artists have never been used on one of my Desert Island lists before.
4. It'll probably take a few listens to get into because the two halves vary so much.

That's exactly what I'm saying.

I won't be one of the newbies dropping out, I can assure you that. I pulled an all-nighter last night and finished my list. I was shocked at how quickly I did it and how happy I am with it.

I fucking can't wait till this thing starts. In fact, I'm going to put two hyper-excited smilies at the end of my post to let you guys know that I'm not messing around...

Might have been nice if more people participated in the Retro list, at least listening-wise, that's all I'm saying. The lists were short & sweet.

And you think your list will get multiple plays? Yeah, if y'all keep swapping your lists a month in advance.

Yeah, I should have participated. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun without me. Strangely, my favorite music competition on this forum was a mini game; the Symphonic Album Game. I enjoyed that more than any DI so far.

More than 1 listen per person is gonna be slightly

GAF, I love the enthusiasm you bring to this forum!

With 24 players, .5 listens will be tricky.

Yeah, the more the merrier. You can still go back and listen - see what you think.

My thoughts exactly Zoots. It's hard, at least for me, to listen to the lists at once in their entirety, yet alone multiple times. I usually try & play them while working as well... I still wonder how many people actually listen to all the lists completely. I'm sure many of you do, but do you all? If I can't listen to the list in its entirety, I usually abstain from voting. That's just me

Thanks, Zoots. The feeling is mutual.

Also, I'm curious as to how long you guys usually make your playlists? I'm sure it varies, but do people generally use up all 160 minutes? Mine is right around 130 minutes right now.

I've seen as low as 110-115 minutes before. I usually use up all 160, but that's just me.

My one big concern with expanding to 24 competitors is the listening aspect. We already have enough trouble getting around to listening to 20 lists, and I've often thought we should reduce it to 16 entries.

Perhaps we should consider qualifying tournaments or something if the interest is that high?

Mine's 156 min and something seconds. From what I've seen so far, people usually try to fit in as much as possible in the 160 min. But I don't think you HAVE to fill it up to the brim as long as you're happy with it and everything sounds good. Plus, a shorter list will be easier to listen to.
