That makes sense. People would just vote for the list with the songs or groups they like, without giving the music a chance. It does defeat the purpose of seeing how good a flow can be achieved. Sort of like a radio station, I see it as.

But I also think it is more interesting when there is a lot of voting going on, because I notice there aren't many votes, but lots of views. Maybe the shorter duration is one of the answers to more participation.

Maybe not a HUGE fan, but you did see them back on the WAR Tour, Zoo TV at Dodger Stadium, and both Elevation & Vertigo tours.



Oh, and hai!

Yeah, I feel the first edition in particular was marred by people seeing, say, U2, Radiohead, and REM in a tracklist and just blindly voting for that without even considering how well the person had made the tracklist or how good any of the other music is. Chances are they probably missed out on discovering some cool stuff!

Certainly more voters helps, though. I think DI II was probably the best tournament in terms of balancing voters with intelligent voting. DI IV went better than expected; after DI III, I was reluctant to return to the game. We'll have to see how those who've already made DI V lists would feel about shortening the time limit, but my gut instinct is that we stick with it for DI V and change after. I could cut my list down to 120 minutes without too much agony but I'm not sure about the others, and plenty of work's been done already by multiple people.

Yeah, I wouldn't change anything now. but it's something to consider down the road. I think more participation, in a voting and listening sense, makes these more fun. Otherwise, after the first rounds, the interest begins to wane.

Sounds like something that could be worth a purity point or two

Oh, back in the day when Hardy lived up to his 14% score?

Absolutely. The later heats before the quarter finals can get a bit tedious if there's not much voting happening. A flat 2 hours seems far more logical, really. I'm surprised we've stuck with 160 minutes for so many tournaments, given it's a relic of a format we've abandoned.
