If there's one thing I know about Laz, it's that he's a stickler for rules.

I would go two per. I feel like the goal should be for each list to get as much attention from its listeners as it did from its creator, and I feel the only way to do that is to shrink the serving size as much as possible. I'd even be up for doing it one per every two or three days, but I feel like no one else would.

I like this. Then we can change the time of the competition because we didn't realize summer was too hot. That will allow Bonnie to participate.

I get the merits of this conversation, but that doesn't stop it from being overblown. It's a fucking mixtape exchange and friendly competition. Bonnie's done it before and knows what's up. Do a slow roll-out of the lists and put hers toward the end of the listening pack. Or put out a master list then add hers when it's ready.

We all just wanna listen to music, talk a little shit, and goof off. It's one of the few semi-annual events that gets the gang back together. Please don't take this as me bad-mouthing the back-end work in putting this altogether; there's gotta be some order to make it work. But come on now.

I don't think anyone's really arguing against you, except a person or two.

Actually...I think LMP may have solved this, LeMel. Just do the polls as planned, but make sure Bonnie competes in one of the later polls to give her more time to finish(or, if she can't do it, to give someone else enough time to put a list together).

Let go of the polls already. It's done. It's not happening. There's no way there would be enough participation to warrant them, at this point, and you can ask anyone here: I'm the staunchest supporter of going back to polls. Let's just do three playlists at a time, spread out the jams, have fun, and submit rankings at the end. It's not like this is for cash. There's not even a cute little trophy that we send through the mail. It's good enough the way it's been, and we should just keep it status quo.

Agree to disagree. They should happen, and with the solution of putting Bonnie at the end, there's no reason why they shouldn't. I mean, weren't polls Travis's plan until it looked like we only had 19 contestants instead of 20? As for participation, I assume you're talking about non-contestant participation? I don't even know why that's needed. As long as the 20 of us vote on every poll, what's the problem?

This isn't Nam, Smokey. This is bowling. There are rules!

Nah, you're right. I'm trying to sway the masses with my powerful rhetoric though!

Lest anyone doubt that there is still interest in DI, here's a comparison of previous signup threads:

DI 1 rules and signup thread: N/A
DI 2 rules and signup thread: 356 posts
DI 3 rules and signup thread: 961 posts
DI 4 rules and signup thread: 530 posts
DI 5 rules and signup thread: 563 posts
DI 6 rules and signup thread: 136 posts
DI 7 rules and signup thread: 199 posts
DI 8 rules and signup thread: 162 posts
DI 9 rules and signup thread: 394 posts
DI 10 rules and signup thread: 447 posts

Outside of the ridiculous DI3/Space Moon clash, DI10 is right on track to match some of the most successful past DIs. Voting would still probably be in the tank, but if/when DI11 rolls around, I think we can safely assume there will still be plenty of discussion.

And this, of course, bodes well for the listening threads.

I'm going to be burning the midnight oil making sure everything is ready so I can just hit "send" on the threads/PMs before I go to class tomorrow.
