I've tried downloading the first link in Screwtape's email of his playlist 3 separate times on my other computer, and it will not open and I get some sort of error message.

hmmm his worked fine for me (though they have no artist or album tags )

i had trouble with one of LMP's though, but it was only because for some reason the file was not a .rar, so I just changed the name so it ended in .rar and it worked fine

I do like that the tracklistings were changed from four hours in the prog island game to two hours and 40 minutes for this game. I started following prog island too late to give myself enough time to listen to the lists, so I couldn't participate.

2:40 is a much more manageable time. It gives the creator enough time to establish a mood or theme, but that's not too much for someone to listen to, either all at once or in two parts. I've listened to my own list several times over the last week straight through, and I'm going to get started today on the lists we have (LemonMelon, I closed my eyes and pointed and got yours first ).

To start, there will be 48 hours to vote on each matchup, so that should give most people enough time to listen to both lists, even if theyhaven't heard them ahead of time. Some people skip the tracks they already know, so that they're only listening to what's unfamiliar to them. Voting will get easier time-wise as you go because you'll have already listened to the lists.

I don't know what I'm going to do about the early rounds of voting, because I'm going to be away for about 2 weeks. I'm going to listen to everything we have so far, and hopefully others can send me their lists as they finish them, and then once the organizers put together a competition bracket I can fill in my votes for each round through about Aug. 15. I'll have very limited computer access while I'm away, and my parents' employer blocks many websites, so I may not be able to get on here while I'm gone.

Well, I hope people don't simply skip but listen in about 15 to 30 seconds at the beginning and at the end, so they don't miss the flow from track to track.

Unfortunately I think some people vote without listening at all

I think the flow is one of the most interesting parts of the competition. I'm always interested to see how and why others arrange their songs. In close rounds, that will often be my deciding factor.

It doesn't HAVE to be that long. That time limit is a maximum. If you want to make a shorter playlist, go for it.

(Honestly, I'm surprised I'm the first person to say that. )

I was able to download and unzip both Screwtape's and LMP's links, but last night everything else was giving me an error message. Looks to be fine today, though. So far.

I think that's definitely true. It's the arrangement of a whole set of songs as well, not just one or two, and you don't get the full effect of a tracklist unless you listen to it in its entirety.

Given the length of the tracklists and the time it takes to download, rearrange tracks into the order intended etc., I don't think that too many of those outside those actively participating in the competition will have the time or patience to do that for each entry. Hopefully all 20 participants will though!

Screwtape, your Disc 1 is so beautiful and so sad. I love how gorgeous it is and the flow is amazing but don't know if I can handle all these aching strings on a sunday. lol

I've still had trouble with Screwtape's Zip Files. I downloaded the first two, and ran a 'rebuild' option, and I'm only missing songs 4 and 9 from those two zip files. I'm downloading the 3rd part now. Only heard a few songs. If I'm on a desert island and this is all I get to hear (No offense Screwtape )

ETA: It seems like one song in each batch of the Zip files is corrupt or damaged for me, so I'm missing song 1 of the 3rd file (Tori Amos). I'm getting most of it. I hope I don't have this much trouble with the rest

Weird. None of my zip files have done this and even these have worked for everyone else. Sorry my playlist is giving you a hard time.

I figure that if you are on a desert island the thing you want more than anything else is to feel human and that you are not alone in this feeling. I think that is what my playlist does. Pain and sadness always fall to one's humanity. On an island, sometimes you need to be reminded of that humanity through compassion and mercy.
