Woops, didn't mean to forget you! OK, so that's six. Has anyone else committed?

Oh, Screwtape, I changed the titles of Sections 2 and 3 of my playlist:

Section 2 - The Great Escape

Section 3 - Is Someone Listening In?

Just giving you the head's up.

Axver, these were the main things that were being suggested. So you don't have to go looking.

1. A two week time period between the sign-up thread and tournament start.

2. I think with the groups we should have one with only newcomers or people who didn’t go very far in the previous games. Then we can determine who is in each of the other three groups by a seeding according to how a person finished in the last game.

For example (suggesting these people had spots)...

LMP=Group 1 U2VF=Group 2 Axver=Group 3

Then we would take the next highest finishers and seed the highest in Group 3 and the lowest in Group 1.

Bono’s Shades =Group 1 XHendrix24=Group 2 Lancemc=Group 3

Then the next three...

LJT=Group 1 Screwtape=Group 2 Gibsongirl=Group 3

Then the final three...

Lara Mullen=Group 1 Bono_man2002= Group 2 FitzChivalry=Group 3

Group 1-LMP, Bono’s Shades, LJT, Lara Mullen
Group 2-U2VF, XHendrix, Screwtape, Bono-man2002
Group 3-Axver, Lancemc, Gibsongirl, FitzChivalry
Group 4- Newcomers…

Top 2 from each group advance to quarterfinals.

1. I'm cool with a 2 week period. I normally just pick a convenient Monday. I was thinking the 23rd as the start date.

2. Sure, I'd be happy if you did that. Emphasis on "you". It can be your funeral, not mine.

An additional rule is that songs from the first game can be used again. It was that long ago that I don't see any harm with re-admitting them. (Though personally, all four of my Island tracklists have not repeated a single track.)

Welcome back, Axver. Hope everything went well.

In addition to confirming the minutes and number of participants, there was a discussion on editing again.

I know your answer because you did it in the Prog Island game, but just confirm so everyone is on the same page. If someone wishes to edit a track that finishes, has silence, and then has a "hidden bonus track" tacked on at the end, is it ok to do so? You did so for Transatlantic, and actually, now that I have the CD, I did the same thing for The Third Ending.

Just let us know if this was only an exception made for Prog Island, or if it's ok every time.

I'm kinda thinking about participating if there is a spot left. But I hope newcomers are allowed to use any songs they wish!

Absolutely, because a newcomer hasn't used any yet.

But you can only use an artist once.

Thanks.

And yes, that sort of editing will remain permissible. My logic is that if people want to use Song A, they can use Song A without Song B on the same file totally messing up their overall timing and tracklist cohesion.

That would've been great if I knew that a few weeks ago.

You should've read the Prog Island threads more closely as I know that in one, I made my intention clear to permit repeats from the first game.

(Though the repeats rule will only apply to those who have competed in both previous editions. Someone who competed in Desert Island I but not II cannot re-use songs.)

I'm content with my entry anyway, it's my favorite thus far.

Of course. It will actually be quite easy unless a significant number of contestants were not in the last game. By significant I mean over five. Then we go to our plan B...to come up with a plan B.

I already have myself, phanan, Screwtape, GG, and LMP. Anyone else?

And for the record, the time limit will be 160 minutes and there will be 20 contestants.
what do you mean by already in? Do you mean you have to have done it before? Because I'd love to be in... do I have to submit my tracklist now to be in or do I reserve a spot or what? what is going on in my life

No, I mean those who have already expressed their intention to enter this coming tournament and have begun work or even completed their tracklist.

I'll make the sign-up thread later today. If you want to participate, just post in that.
