Thanks.

I've put together my playlist and I'm 99% sure that you'll love it. The mood is pretty similiar to that of The Dark Third.

Hey Axver and LemonMacPhisto,

I'm going to be doing a lot of research for school over the next two weeks which means a lot of time on the computer. So I'll have time to handle the duty of gathering and sending/ uploading the files if you want to leave that task to me. It might be faster and more efficent to have more than one person running the whole thing.

What do I need to do?
How about we split the duties? I'll handle the organisation side of things, which I should have time to do, then I'll hand it over to you? That means you'd be the one making the threads for each round and stuff along those lines, while I'll set up the contest, get the master list organised, make sure no-one's broken the rules, etc. I did all of that last time and it's fairly mundane work.

How does that sound to you?

I'm looking forward to this.

Also, I really need to send you the PRR songs from their EP. I keep forgetting.

That could be helpful. Last time, we had everyone upload their own compilation and send me the links, then we (well, hippy) set up a master page linking to all the compilations and that link was distributed to everyone who left an e-mail address on the threads.

After the 15th of this month, I may find myself rather limited on the up/downloading front, so I'd not be the person to handle duties there.

btw, just to be clear, remixes and the like are okay, right? just so long as they're commercially released and everything?

OK, here's my idea for a new format. As I said earlier, I'd like repechage rounds. So I'm thinking of something like this:

24 contestants. 12 qualifying rounds, with two tracklistings competing in each round. The 12 winners qualify automatically for the main competition's heats. The 12 losers qualify for four quick-fire repechage rounds, with three tracklistings in each repechage. The winner of each repechage qualifies for the four remaining places in the main competition's heats.

The main competition then begins and it's sudden death. 16 contestants, thus 8 heats. Winners advance to the quarter finals, then semis, then grand final.

Thoughts? How long should each round be? Should the repechages all be held at once and try to get them straight out of the way, or just make them shorter than normal rounds but following each other consecutively? Could the repechages be done another way? We just need to maintain the pattern of 2 people in the grand final, 4 in the semis, 8 in the quarters.

Or does somebody have a completely different format they want to propose? I'm open to new ideas.

Absolutely. If I could legitimately acquire a song somewhere, then it's eligible. It doesn't matter if it's an album track, a remix on a single, a track off an official live release, an iTunes bonus track, or even a free track from the artist's website. Ineligible material is mainly just live tracks from bootlegs (not counting "official bootlegs" from the likes of Pearl Jam) and unreleased tracks/demos/whatnot, e.g. Axtung Beibi tracks.

Wait, different tracklistings each round?

No, absolutely not! Maybe I should have written 'contestant' instead of 'tracklistings'. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

I just had a thought. Why not separate all of the playlists into four or six groups? The groups are made of similiar sounding playlists or something like that. When the schedule is setup, why not pull a name out of four separate hats. That way the albums seem fresh when put up against different sounding playlists.

Example:
Group One: Happy
Group Two: Sad
Group Three: Angry
Group Four: Calm

Happy # 4 vs. Angry # 2
Sad # 6 vs. Calm # 1

So you end up randomly picking something out of each group. This way two similiar playlists don't meet until the semifinals.

Good idea or bad idea?

That's an interesting idea, Screwtape. I'm not sure if it would work, if we'd be able to find a convenient way to group the compilations, but it could make things a bit more interesting and avoid a couple of unfortunate match-ups that we had last time.

Here's a VERY ROUGH(!) outline of what I described in my earlier post. I hope this makes sense. Tell me if anything's still not clear.

lol no for real, like maybe two days? everything sounds good to me

and yay for allowing remixes! i figured they would be fine, but i wanted to be sure. because one of the songs i'm thinking of including is on a studio album (as in not a compilation), but it's a remix. and it's not a bonus track. go figure!

Ok, I just shaved my playlist down to 2:39:16 .

I'm damn proud of it, and I think there's only 1 track on there that may or may not be elegable...I need to research it a little more to be sure...if not, it's no problem to choose another song.
