So, where does that leave people (referring to myself especially) who didn't get to the semi's and obviously aren't new to the game, but would like a chance to try again. Will they still be able to participate? Cause seriously this was one of the funnest things I've done on interference, even if my playlist did suck pretty hard this time...I was into some weird music when I made it, and I've kinda regretted that list ever since..

Your list wasn't too weird.

As for who gets in, it is really up to which people prefer: semifinalists get first dibs or first come, first serve. In the end it is what the people what.

Are you kidding? You'll get in, no sweat.

And so will I. Watch out.

Well, either method we choice, I'm in. I call dibs on one of the spots.

Oh yeah, keep voting for me you lousy wankers!





I keed, I keed.

LMP is my favorite remaining tracklist besides my own. IMP's was my favorite in the whole tourney, but alas, there are only 4 of us left.

Let's see if we can give Brau a heart attack. Currently, I have 44 songs with a length of 5 hours 40 minutes.

Oh, and Screwtape: you are going to LOVE my opening trio. I've surprised even myself with how well this works.
Neat. I can't wait to hear it. I just finished my playlist with a time of 3 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds.

Man, this is a tough one to vote on. I'm still mulling it over.

Oh, and yeah, I'm in next time we do this. I'd like to try it with more than 24 hours to work with next time.

Lance's playlist is the best one in the entire tourney, I hope he wins.

Well, I decided to go with LMP as I feel his list is a bit more diverse. I really feel both tracklists are very B&C-esque, to the point of almost being cliche. Whoever wins this will probably win the final.

I'm just another opinion in the crowd, but I must say that I prize thoroughness above all (though I suppose agreeing with the current 160 minute system would seem contrary to that).
Yeah, it seems to have come to a conclusion all of a sudden. It felt like the qualifying rounds, repechages, and heats dragged on for-bloody-ever, but now we've only got three rounds to go. I'd really like to get rid of some of that long-winded earlier process though. I fear some people have lost interest and I think this has been manifested in the fact that early on, people were downloading the tracklists and listening before they voted, while now, people seem to be more voting on what they know. I feel Screwtape's quarter final in particular was marred by that - or maybe that was the only time people were brave enough to admit it.

My inclination is to have first come, first served, but in case of a lot of applicants, we might have to dismiss some past contestants in favour of some new entrants. Perhaps enforce a quota of a certain amount of newbies/people who haven't yet progressed far.

Oh, and with regards to my prog tracklisting, I've managed to get it down to 4 hours, 9 minutes, 2 seconds, with 31 songs! It looks like once I'm done, I'll have 25% less songs than I had in this current tournament, despite 80 minutes more runtime!

I first noticed the interest drop in Lara Mullen's qualifying round in which only like 18 people voted and there were only a couple replies. Hopefully, next time the interest will be be even throughout. As for the quota of newbies, I think 2 or 3 spots should be reserved to them.

I wouldn't mind joining next time but I'd like a couple of days (preferably a weekend) to make up my list.

At this rate, LMP is going to win it all.

Yeah, there should be another one set up NCAA Tourney-style. Maybe 2 different brackets and two contests can be run simultaneously (one from each side) but the voting is kept up longer (2-3 days).

Also, if you've participated in BOTH tourneys, you can use songs from your FIRST entry, but not the SECOND Entry. I think that's pretty fair.
