It was a tough choice, dazzlingamy's list had some of my favourite artists and songs but Fritz's had Everything in its right place, and right now that's enough to make me vote for it.

And I went to bed early and missed the end of this round!

OK, what do we do? Last time, both progressed, but if we do that this time, that could stuff up the repechages.

Shall we just send both through to the heats anyway and whoever was meant to meet the loser of this round in the repechages gets a free ticket through to the second level of the repechages, or shall we get a mod to open this poll for one more day?

Okay, let's just have both play against whoever in the repechage (since it so close they would be part of the four that need to win only once to get in) the top 2 of the 3 clinch berths in the tourney. So just start the next match.

By the way, I'll make the diagram of the tourney tonight or tomorrow Axver.

I honestly don't like the idea of sending them both to the repechage. The repechage is meant to be for the losers, not the winners.

I just had another look at my rough diagram of the tournament, and what I think would be best is that both go through to the heats, making their heat a three-way clash, while the first repechage is left as just myself vs liamcool. I forgot the repechages were going to be three-way clashes.

So this means that heat 1 will be GG vs [winner of repechage 4], heat 2 will be Screwtape vs Fitz vs Amy, and repechage 1 will be Axver vs liamcool. How does that sound?

Cool, thanks! I hope it looks better than my rough one!

Okay. Then let's make the three people who lost by the least play at once and have the top 2 advance.

You have the repechage right but the seeding the tourney itself was going to be random. We can draw DA and Fitz a single entity. Does that make sense?

Why not just let it go until someone votes?

EDIT: Why did it have to be locked? Now I look like an idiot.

I'll admit, I'm a bit lost.

I'm going to make the new round now, and just say that both Amy and Fitz are going through to the heats, but we haven't yet fully sorted the details on how they'll proceed. The first repechage will remain solely me vs Liam, which I think is a good idea anyway as we're the two remaining prog tracklistings and it can be a battle to see which one qualifies as the heat's entrant.

This might not be a good idea, but it sounds like Axver didn't vote. Perhaps he can just be the tiebreaker and be done with it...

I would be fine with, IF Axver didn't vote, then he could "cast the final stone" and be the tie-breaker.

That would be ok by me.

(Side Bar: Of course, if he picks dazzlingamy, then I'll really regret ever posting this and curse his name under my breath 'till my dying day! j/k )

Oh, heh, I did actually vote, I just forgot to post. I voted for Amy. She had less stuff that I seriously dislike, even though Fitz had An Cat Dubh and some Genesis.

When I voted for her, she was 3 votes behind with about 6 hours to go and I thought Fitz was definitely going to win as we usually don't get many votes in the last few hours!
