Ooh. Do let me know what you think. I'm still tossing up whether or not to order them from Amazon, and I'd quite value the thoughts of somebody like you about the quality of the remastering job and the bonus discs.

Yeah I think the scoring system would work better, although there would be no real difference between someone saying 2-1 and 1-0; well not any real practical difference anyway

Hey Phanan, what do you think of the idea of doing a Band League?

We could also have three or four bands (depending on league size) gain promotion or be relegated each season.
As for the matches I think it'd probably be best to have set limit for scores; such as 0-0,1-0,1-1,2-1,2-2,3-2,3-3 with the limit being 3-3. With a draw being you (dis)like bands evenly, win by one meaning you like the that band a bit better, winning by two would be you prefer the band a lot and winning by 3 would be well basically saying the other sucks compared to the other. Also a 0-0 draw could be if you don't know either band. Something along those lines anyway
Having not read through the threads, I'm curious as to what this is about.

If you do order them from Amazon, mind ordering two and I'll pay you?

Hence my reasoning for jumping ship in January and moving to Australia.

Ha, cool then. I've used that to edit tracks, like removing silences or improving fade-outs, but never anything more.

WIR should be in your inbox. Alex Descends is now off to Reggo.

I'm thinking of setting up a Band League, were bands are placed into Groups/Leagues similar to a Football League and they are placed against each other. Every round people will give a result to each of the matches and those will be added up to give a final result and that will be added to the table; with relegations and promotions at the end of each season.

You made the right choice. Australia needs more people like you.
