Ok, so I lied. I didn't get a chance to update the website last night.

I'll make sure Groups 3 and 4 are up there tonight so people can start to check those playlists out.

It was less than 5 votes, or 4 votes or less, last time. I guess we could do it again, although in reviewing the results of DI3, it didn't seem to make a difference in the end.
Well, it's no secret I feel pretty strongly about including bonus points for narrow losses. I think it could come into play. Didn't it actually prove decisive in the Prog Island?

Whatever the case, it does mean that losing by 2 in a close-fought round that could've gone either way, and perhaps might've gone the other way had certain people been online, is not equated with losing by 25, a margin it's fairly safe to say is an indisputable verdict.

Is anybody else having some problems with Media Fire today? For a few different links, it will say my download is starting, then either nothing will happen or the page will time out. This has happened to me with parts of Khan's, LJT's, and Axver's lists, though not with every link I've tried to download.

I already have a few downloaded. I'll listen to them and try again later.

Thank you, sir. I've already made some revisions to it in my head, but I'm pleased with it overall. I almost chose Dylan's "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" for my list, too. I had a hard time settling on a Dylan song this time.

I'm really impressed with the quality of submissions this time. We all have a good week of listening coming up. There isn't a single group where it's easy to pick a winner. We should have some close rounds this time

We should do it as three votes or less then. If we have a round where there are only 15 votes, a three vote difference is enough.

That sounds good to me. Though I expect that since it's been a while between tournaments and this has generated a fair bit of interest, we'll have more than 15 voters this time around. I hope so anyway!
