Okay, listen carefully.

The albums are divided into six groups.

Each group has it's own little playoff (1v4, 2v3)

These are the qualifying rounds.

The two winners from each group advance into the tourney.

This fills twelve of the sixteen spots in the tourney.

The losers go into a separate bracket.

*The four teams that were closest in their group matchups play each other. The winners get into the tourney.

The other eight teams play each other.

The four winners play each other.

Those two winners get the final two spots in the tourney.

The sixteen teams in the tourney are seeded by random order.

G1 winners in tourney
G2 winners in tourney
G3 winners in tourney
G4 winners in tourney
G5 winners in tourney
G6 winners in tourney

Top 4 Losers: winners in tourney

L1vL2
L3vL4 Winners play each other, winner in tourney

L5vL6
L7vL8 Winners play each other, winner in tourney

TOURNEY: Random Seeding

It is pretty simple when you look at it.

I really like Screwtape's idea too, except that I feel the repechage is too long and drawn out. It's nearly the length of the entire competition itself!

That would work.

How long do you plan to run the rounds, and will qualifying rounds/repechages be shorter than the full rounds?

I'll leave this sort of stuff up to you as you'll be running it, but I'll need to know it for one of my posts before the tournament gets under way.

If everyone has the first round fresh in their minds couldn't we have three matchups available for voting over two days? Wouldn't that put the final six teams in, in just four days?

Yeah, we'll get through them quick-fire, that'll work.

By the way, I suspect you, liamcool, and I will all end up in the same group.

(My collection is less prog than last time though, and I've eliminated the metal aspect.)

once again I agree with Screwtape.

a 2 day voting period is perfect, plus simultaneous voting.

OK, so now we need a deadline for submissions, and we need to make a calendar of how this will go down.

I think the deadline should be the end of the month, with the actual competition starting a week later.

Then work the dates out systematically.

That sounds perfect.

So do you want to go with the questions to get an idea of grouping? If so, what questions should be asked?

End of the month? That's a pretty bloody long time away! I was thinking of the 15th, heh. But that does give people more than enough time to upload their files and everything.

I gotta lotta work to do this week....the end of the month would be grand........but i would be happy with say....the 22nd JAN, that's 2 weeks from now!

The new rules are cool! Not sure about the whole catergorising thing will go as with what Srewtape suggested....i don't really want to do that...personally i think it should be up to the voter to determine that for themselves whether they prefer a certain genre as to another.......i mean there would be variety anyways on the tracklist i can only imagine.

The losers having a play off sounds good....but guessing how much work is involved with this comp, i will be happy for what you guys decide on anyway.

OK, I've got my iTunes mix down to 2.6 hours and I've put the tracks in the order I think I want. I'm doing a test run to check the flow right now.

I think I will enter this thing after all.

I like the idea of only one song per artist. It's made my list a lot more varied and interesting, but I still didn't have any trouble filling it entirely with songs I absolutely adore.
