I don't even know if I'm going to participate, but I thought I'd throw my two cents in.
Sure, it may be desert island material, but this is a different contest and using different material keeps it more interesting.

Plus, that rule gives preference to those who have not competed before, which I think is good. We want to let as many new people as possible compete.

The rule is that a song has to be officially released in some capacity for it to be included. It's a pretty lenient rule: a song only ever played live would be permitted if it were included on an official live release, and something like U2's The Fool would be permitted due to its iTunes release. However, U2 songs like My Time Hasn't Come or Mercy would be ruled out due to the lack of an official release. I hope no-one uses Wild Irish Rose, because that one could be tricky.

I'm a bit concerned though, last.fm appears to indicate you've been playing U218.

I've already made mine.

Though its tracklisting is shit, so I'm working on improving the flow now. Making mixes is too much fun.

You should see how badly I slagged it off over on RateYourMusic.com

(Go to http://rateyourmusic.com/~Axver and scroll down to below my personal details to where it has 'recent', 'ratings', 'collection', 'reviews'. Click 'reviews' and it's the most recent one there.)

I expected it to be harder than it was. I set myself some criteria to make selections easier and it gave me a tracklisting almost perfectly within the time limit! I didn't need to cut anything (though I did replace a few songs as the original selections didn't work).

And I thought I was being polite.

Haha, that would just be lazy!

I suppose I made life easier for myself by setting one rule: "no half hour long prog epics!"

I want to play!!!!!

I didn't participate last time, but I followed the whole damn tournament!

Someone e-mail the official rules (once they're decided) and the cut off dates, etc.

And I have a question regarding the multiple tracks issue. Can I email you to talk about some specifics?
if you have iTunes, click where it says 2.6 hours and it will change to the 2:00:00 format.

OK, who's going to run this? I think it'd be helpful to sort that out. I've thought about it and I'd be happy to do it on two conditions:

1. I have a backup in case I do end up having a day where I have no Internet access and can't start the next round.
2. EVERYBODY FOLLOWS THE RULES! I can't emphasise that enough. Last time, I had to go through and fix the formatting of some submissions. This time, I won't have the time for that. Plus, it was boring as hell and I don't really intend to do it again anyway.

But LMP, do you want to do it?

I have just three questions:

1. Are we judged by the total presentation (mood, flow, theme, etc.) or by the song choices?

2. Can I title my playlist?

3. Does anyone have links to some of the threads from actual tourney?

1. It's however the voters choose to judge it. In my entry for the first competition, I tried to find a good balance between quality songs and cohesive flow.

2. Sure, go ahead.

3. Here they are: http://forum.interference.com/search...by=&sortorder=

I'll do it, only if you don't want to.

What do I need to do?
