I also agree about the second days having an impact previously. Based on that, I think we should make every poll 48 hours, from the beginning to the end.

So what day are we starting the competition? I'd prefer that Thursday because along with Friday, that is where the best turnout is.

Awww, damn it. Less than 5 minutes to go in uploading my last zip file to meda fire, and the site goes down for two hours.



So close to being done. So close.

I'll have everything done by the end of the weekend, hopefully. I found my cover art online tonight, came up with a name, and got the tracklisting ready. Now it's just a matter of uploading and writing my paragraph.

You make Desert Island sound like a college thesis paper.

You don't have to, it'd just be a little write-up of why you choose some of the tracks or something.

just trying to narrow down the bands and songs and then worry about the order of them. I'm sure there will be no flow

Question, do digital only releases, like iTunes Originals tracks, count as being officially released?

If so, The Flaming Lips' cover of Sabbath's War Pigs might make my next Desert Island list.

Which Thursday are you referring to? August 2nd?

I thought we were going to wait a week after the master list thread was posted before the heats started.



We could post the master list on late Tuesday/early Wednesday and then start the heats the following Monday. That would give some people that weekend to listen. Would that work?

I think that was my original proposal, so I definitely support that.
