Yeah, the multiple arrangements is really going to draw things out. Luckily, rounds will only be 24 hours long, and I think I'll make the qualifiers run at the same time.

I do want this current tournament and Live Survivor to get us well past the release of the new album. Then we can get stuck into a new Album Survivor, which will determine seedings for a new Song Survivor, and those will hopefully take place once the new album has had time to settle.

Happy to pick through my stuff and try to find some quality performances...maybe it would make sense to get some people to commit to doing an album or 2 apiece.
Cool.

Yeah, we'll have to get a few bootleg collectors/live fanatics to participate in this and get some really good song packages made.

I'd also really like it if you could participate in seeding rankings - I'm going to get people who know U2's live history well to rank the categories and the combined results will determine seeding. It may seem a little elitist and exclusive, but I'll try to get a wide range of people and views. Anybody who is well acquianted with U2's live history will be welcome to submit a ranking. I think it's less flawed than trying to establish seeding through public polls before the tournament starts and some people have never heard a single track in, say, the Non-album 1986-90 category because we haven't had time to do the uploads yet - and even if we had, there's got to be over 200 songs in the tournament and who has time to digest all that in a short space of time?

I'll help you out with that too. I'm pretty familiar with live U2.

Also, are you going premium again in order to run this?

Cool, good to have you on board.

I'm seriously thinking about going premium. We'll see. It's still a fair way off.

I really want to know how people can think The Fly is better than Acrobat. Acrobat is in my top 10. The Fly is in my top 100.

Because not all of us have Acrobat in our top 10.

That's how.

Because they're wrong.




Still, this could go either way yet.

Yes. Very wrong. And it could. But it won't.

I voted for Acrobat, but, how do questions like this make sense?

ETA - I meant, voted the Fly off. I love Acrobat, merely like The Fly, but do not understand the question.
