I would love both of you forever if a copy turned up in my inbox.

Yes, 48 hours, so the first two heats in Round 1 will start Monday morning EST. On Wednesday morning when they end, I'll start the next two.

Every heat will last 48 hours.

Did you ever send these new links out? I never got anything, and U2vertigofly is in one of the heats that starts on Monday. We'll need the links ASAP in order to have time to listen to the playlist in its entirety.

No. I was uploading them to mediafire but when it came to the verification part nothing happened. I'm now trying to upload again. There is one problem with the files, they are not tagged because they all came as track 1, track 2 and so on. I wasn't able to tag them myself. Sorry. The links should be out in two and half hours.

That's why I labeled the folders as tracks 1-20 etc., because they are in order in the folders

For the next game, can we add a new rule that says if one of the tracks you want to use is in a protected format, you either unprotect it by burning it and then re-converting it back onto your computer, find an unprotected version of the song, or you just don't use that song?

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.

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'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?
