Well, that's part of the reason we're doing the prog island competition, to try some tweaking and see how it works. I think four hours of music is great to show off progressive rock, because it gives us the chance to stretch out and focus on some beautifully constructed longer pieces of music, but in the end, it's a long time, so the consensus has been to revert back to the previous length, which was 160 minutes, for Desert Island 3.

I'm in the middle of GibsonGirl's set now.

This has been a fun week at work, listening to a playlist a day.

I was definitely trying to do that for my next one, but I thought that length of the next playlist would be 240 minutes as well.

I made a backup 160 minute playlist last night I'm pretty proud of.

Will there be an opening up of the rules to include bootlegs or unofficial material, and number of songs from one artist?

Just I am kinda putting together my playlist now......

I believe we will be sticking to the one song per artist rule for the next Desert Island. We took that rule away just for Prog Island because it's just for one specific genre.

And I don't think bootlegs or unofficial material will be included still.

Axver or Screwtape can confirm for you, as they are running this.

One song per artist will stay. I'm a big fan of that rule, and even though I saw the logic in waiving it for this mini-tournament, I still abided by it myself, as my tracklist shows.

As long as I am running the tournament, bootlegs/other unofficial material will never be permitted.

Regarding whether we will revert to 160 minutes, I initially thought there was a consensus that while 240 minutes was valuable for this mini-tournament, it was too long for the main game. However, I think that consensus has broken down. I would like further discussion.

Really, listening to 4 hours of music per person is a sick thing to make us do. I stick to my previous opinion that it would make folks less likely to listen through the playlists and would possibly even drop the vote count a bit.

I tend to agree. While compiling four hours of music would be fun, I'd doubt too many people would listen to the whole thing. And giving people the opportunity to listen is one of the main goals with this.

I don't think 4 hours would be too difficult to compile. But when the number of entries is as high as previous games, I think it would be tough to listen through them all before the votes are needed.

Although for me, the more the merrier. I get to hear more new music through these games than I've heard on fm radio in the last few years. Even if I don't finish listening in time to vote, it's still there when I can finally get around to it.

But I think having people listen to the entire set, then voting, would be the goal

Yeah, after re-assembling my Desert Island playlist, 160 minutes is the way to go.

4 hour playlists for 8 people is one thing, not for 16 people. That would be crazy.
