Would anyone be interested in if I ran a Song Wars style competition on here? It would very similar to the ones that Craster has run previously , but I have some different ideas on how people would get knocked out and the themes and stuff.

If you could let me know in here if you are interested, that would be great. Once I have an understanding of how many people are up for it, I'll provide more details of what the structure will be etc.

Thanks

PS if you don' know what song wars is, then basically each round everyone who is playing, picks a song which they think best matches a particular theme, then everyone votes for their favourite song out of those picked, and the losers get knocked out. Then everyone left in, picks another song. this repeats until there is one song left, and they are crowned the winner!

My experience of song wars it’s just a popularity contest. You need to post the broadest most well known songs to win. Voters aren’t interested in anything new, interesting or challenging, imo. ;)

That's part of what I want to try and address with the format changes. Not saying I'll be able to do it, but I want to try

So, we are at 12 participants so far, so probably 2 groups at the moment, I'll publish the details soon.

In the meantime, the last song wars had a dedicated sub forum and dedicated space to upload songs.

Is there any chance they still exist?

We can recreate the subforum easily enough. The MP3 uploader is still there - http://www.fullonrobotchubby.co.uk/playa2/

Do we really need to upload songs in this day and age? Feels like a relic of a bygone era

Imagine my shock and horror to discover that a competitive situation with Curio had an undercurrent of scoring bias.

Conversely, one of my favourite songs, Bad Devil, just has a still of a naked Devin Townsend from the album cover and one of the versions is posted by a user called MisanthropicC**t and another has a description of 'that's no music for gays' :S

I'll give it until the end of the week before drawing up the groups, in the meantime, can you all suggest some themes that you'd like to see used in the tournament, when I have a load, I will put up a poll for which theme(s) will be used in the first round.
