I personally favour the extension and this competition is partly intended to trial the format, but from past discussions, I expect that we will probably stick with the 160 minute time limit in the 3rd Desert Island game.

I'll have to get rid of 1 hour and 20 minutes of music then. Awesome.

I hope we do stick with it...I don't want to have to retool my playlist all over again.

You need to require MP3 uploads.

If someone can't upload and share, they can't enter.

Otherwise, lists get cursory view and a vote. Dog shit.

Agreed 100%. I even got a head start; my playlist is actually available elsewhere on teh internets already.

All of the links won't go out until Monday/Tuesday but if you want a head start on some of them leave your e-mails.

We'll discuss the 160 vs 240 minute time limit a bit more before making a firm decision. I already have a (very provisional) 240 minute tracklist for the 3rd full installment too - precisely 240:00! I really like it too so I'd rather not change it.

It just seemed that past discussion revealed most favoured 160 minutes.

I actually agree.

I kinda agree as well. It's difficult going from player to player, especially when the tracks aren't, um, put together in order (in the download) {no offense to someone here!}. I renumbered hubby's list a hundred times. So far only heard most of the first half of Screwtapes. Part two is downloading. Downloaded GG's but haven't played it yet.

I must say, it seems to me that this tournament has some of the best constructed and most interesting playlists we've seen. I can't wait to hear all of this stuff. Looking at the tracklists is enough to make me drool.

I just started uploading mine. Send space says it'll take 7 hours.

I agree. If anything will turn Interference onto prog it's these playlists. Hopefully with all the creative ideas being thrown around on the playlists, a spark with go off in some people's heads as to what they might do with their playlist for the next game.

Were you trying to upload the entire list at once?

Either that, or you have a really slow computer...

293MB file at once.

I do have slow uploads though, because Australian Internet sucks and you have to pay through the nose to have good upload speeds. My downloads are normally 55KB/sec, but I can only achieve 12KB/sec uploads. If I want 55KB/sec up, I think I'll have to fork out another $20 a month, and I don't value fast uploads that much.

Hey, Screwtape, have you sent me your material for the bonus 30 minutes? Because I can't seem to find it. Oh, and please, no Emerson, Lake, and Palmer! I already have three tracks by them in the Supertracklist. Might also be a good idea to avoid Roxy Music and Porcupine Tree too, as they both appear twice.

I'm trying to make the list now and we're falling short of the time limit. If I can get 30 minutes from Screwtape, we should be OK though. I won't be able to start the game until we have a complete Supertracklist, though, I'm afraid it may be a touch rushed in its order. That said, despite a few multiple appearances, it may just end up being the most sonically diverse tracklist of the lot!
