Pfft, that's a stupid reason to mark someone down. Quality, not quantity, people! I suppose if the voter thinks they know a song that could have slotted in an under-time tracklist, that's one thing; but maybe the contestant didn't have it, or doesn't like it, or doesn't think it fits, or whatever.

Ah well, I'm not anticipating I'll have much trouble filling out the time, depending on how this theme of mine pans out.

Is there some convention, also, about one disc having a markedly different vibe than the other? Or is it better to try to mix things up a bit...

Yeah, I think it's ridiculous too, but then some people seem to vote based on strange ideas. Not much you can do about it really. I just say that everybody should enter a tracklist they enjoy the most and not worry about how it goes in the voting.

I find that I'll have some sort of natural division in a lot of my playlists, but never by design. My current DI V playlist has the same theme and vibe all the way through, pretty much. Do whatever you like, really. People have had success with both approaches.

Well, how is that supposed to resolve my chronic indecision??

It's early days, yet. And I think it's a bad sign that I'm already thinking of the one after this, and wondering if I should include a song this time that I might want to use next time...
