I have to break up the folders to meet the mediafire limit. I've tagged the tracks as VF1, VF2 and so on. All people have to do is finish tagging according to master list.

I know this came up earlier in the thread, but I'm just now getting around to putting the lists onto my iPod, and there are 8 songs on angelordevil's list that I won't be able to listen to.

I'm sure the protected files just go unnoticed, or maybe some don't realize they can't be played on other computers, but if people want their whole list to be heard, then they just can't use those tracks.

I just think maybe it needs to be a reminder up front, so participants are on the lookout for that sort of thing when constructing their lists.

Just my $0.02.
That is a great idea.

I've been trying to figure this out for the past three days.

I had no idea the songs in question are protected from copying...I can't even burn them to another CD, which is extremely frustrating. I paid for these songs/albums online! Aside from creating a theme, flow, etc, the great thing about this contest is how sharing a song from an artist can spur further interest, (and further money for the artist, ultimately), but I'm prevented from doing this! Kinda crazy. I'm desperately trying to find a solution. I'll report back shortly...sorry for the inconvenience. I'd obviously love for everyone to hear the songs.

Seeing some of the NFL Hall of Fame coverage, an idea sparked in my head:

A Desert Island Hall of Fame

We could induct...

Two or three playlists from any of the games/mini-games
Two people based on all thier work
Two matches that were exceptional

It would be a nice nostalgic thing that honors those great matches, playlists and people. We would do this after every Desert Island Game. Great idea, bad idea or have I simply lost my mind?

Interference would nominate certain people, playlists and matches with a short paragraph making a case for a person's induction. You can’t vote for yourself but you can vote for a match you were in.

Then we take all the nominees and have multiple choice polls with links to matches and master lists. Plus the best paragraph/case for each nominee is put next to the respective nominee.

The Top 5 playlists meet in single choice poll (top 3 are inducted)
The Top 4 people meet in single choice poll (the top 2 are inducted)
The Top 4 matches meet in single choice poll (the top 2 are inducted)

Again, is anyone into this idea at all?

But it isn't a competition. It is a short time to honor and remember. The polls are just a scientific way of finding out this stuff out. The polls can be done in a matter of a couple days right after this competition.

I know LMP and I discussed doing something like this before. A little nostalgia is never a bad thing. It will also help people with ideas and finding what really works for future editions.

Should we lower flags to half-staff?

um... how the heck are we supposed to know what tracks of U2VF's are which? I've just downloaded the first link in the email, and it has a McCartney song and Elvis Presley, both of which are near the beginning & end of his list. And of the artists I don't know, I don't know who or what the song is... Is it just me?

Downloading the second link now, but have to leave soon...
