So I am totally rearranging my list unless I go with my backup. But I don't think I will. This list, while similar in construction to my past list, is much different in content!

Oh Fuck! Hold on. We're not not allowed to reuse any song we've ever used?

I thought we were allowing DI1 songs to be reused, then DI2 and so on. I don't recall this rule being discussed, less so an expressed intention to modify it.

on a serious note, yeah i agree. i remember for DI4 you could reuse from the first one, but not 2-3. that seemed reasonable. having an ever-growing list of songs to never use again seems a bit excessive.

The very first DI seems barely considered a canonical DI these days (and for good reason).

I would support the rule being that you cannot re-use any songs used in your last three full DI lists, and anything older is fair game. At any rate, I was certainly under the impression that we were gradually releasing material from the oldest DIs for re-use.

Hey, don't revoke my first title.

Either way, it's cool. Surely there's enough music to mine for a 2 CD list without having to fall back to previously used tracks, even if it'd be great to toss in there.

Considering what I was listening to at the time, one disc would have been The Joshua Tree and the other would have been Achtung Baby. And I would have won.

I really don't like the idea of re-using a track in the first place, but this song was kind of the linch-pin of my list...

If I remember correctly, your list was one of the few that actually would still be considered to have value as a DI list. That "up to 7 tracks from any one band" rule or whatever it was really makes some of the lesser lists look laughable in hindsight.

Undoubtedly. I don't know about the rest of you, but even if there were no prohibition on re-use, I'd make a point of steadfastly avoiding it anyway. I'd only re-use if I feel like a song is imperative.

I tend to think of a rule permitting re-use as being more for those cases when you feel like you absolutely wasted a track. I've noticed a number of people feel their first DI entry wasted tracks that, with a bit of tournament experience, they wouldn't have forced in. This is definitely true of me and my first DI list.

Perhaps we could permit re-use in narrow cases if you can establish to phanan (or whoever's running future tournaments) that a track you want to re-use is central to your current list in some sort of thematic sense? Not just that it happens to flow nicely or whatever, but that it is essential to the success of the list. It could also come with a restriction requiring the new list to be significantly different to the old list in various senses (e.g. a certain level of new artists or whatever). Make it a trade-off; yes, one rule is relaxed, but another is tightened.

Any thoughts on that? I tend to prefer my previous proposal that older lists are gradually released, but maybe there would be some merit to this ...

I'd like to first hear if maybe Phanan just kind of messed that part of the rules up/forgot before tightening any restrictions.

You mean no one actually read the rules before signing on?
