Mini Island Results Thread

We're going to go ahead and wrap this up. In the end, a disappointing turnout, so we'll put DI on hiatus for the immediate future and see what next year brings.

I'll be back later on tonight to run down the results.

Really sad to hear the turnout wasn't great this time around.

I really only got comfortable with making and judging playlists this past year and was really looking forward to see what everyone came up with next. What a shame.

I hope the next, eventual Desert Island is really successful. This is one of my favorite threads on the forum.

Me too. I love DI. It's giving me a project to work on on my lunch breaks at work. Otherwise, I'd just sit there and stare at the wall.

Anyway, I can't wait to find out that I lost this round!

We've got to get proactive with DI in the future. Get the mods involved and have them advertise it throughout the forum. Probably should wait until something is going on in the U2 world, but not necessarily. The playlists might be a lot weaker, but at least the new blood will follow through and show some excitement for the competition.

Agreed. It's grown stagnant because it's insular. It's very easy to go ahead and have one of those news bulletins across the forum. Can't see any reason why the Mods wouldn't get behind that.

A lot of people consider the first couple of DIs the most fun and interesting, and that was well before the DI click had been established.

Exactly. I know that I don't want to stop playing, but at the same time I really want to find more people to play the game with, not less.

So I just did the totals now - yes, I hadn't done them this whole time. And holy shit, that was close.

Then again, with only 9 players in the final tally, it's gonna be close no matter what.

I bloody well hope the DI continues and re-emerges soon, I'm already weighing up the tracks that I would use for the next DI.

I've got to remind myself not to be all like, "OH MY GOD LAST PLACE WHAT??!" when there's only so many spots it could be, but last still is a shock.
