I think it's only La Mark who's unhappy here
<gasps> b.i.t.c.h LMFAO atm i think we have 20 countries anyway.
jonny ofc it wont upset you, your not hosting.... poor poor kots
thinking about it a genre theme would be a bit dodgy as some poeple dont listen to rock, power ballads etc, but they can always withdraw for an edition but i think for a theme edition the rules need to be changed slightly eg for rock "up to 3 songs from a NF is allowed providing they didnt get in the top 3 and they didnt chart" just to make it fair to those who havent got a clue on those genres.
Yeah I see what you mean with the genre's thing. Cos for example if we had to chose .. RnB songs I would be a bit clueless etc.
mabye we should do language? we know LOADS of english songs ofc, but if we pick an area of languages eg the hellanics then greek stuff etc - then again that couldnt last for long either as we only know so many songs in non english that is non esc....
scrap the theme ideas.... btw this would be easier to talk on the chat imo
we could do a completly random thing like each of us send a video we find funny and do like a special comedy edition - that would be interesting and original
Do we have to make rules on which song genres/language each participating members should send? Hexelbourg wants to send whatever songs it feels most comfortable with to send! If not..... you know
I totally agree Eurovizz
lol yeah we don't have to use that rule at all obviously I mean if we're having two contests a month, we could have one themed and one not .. or is that getting a bit complicated I don't know Obviously we should just do whatever is the most popular, so if people don't want themed contests, we shouldn't do them
it was only a suggestion - sorry if you didnt like it
I like it I think on the whole it is well appreciated, but obv we should hold a poll or something about a few of these ideas to see that the most popular option is chosen
I'm happy with most suggestions made, especially the regular dates. I guess a website for the contest might be nice, but that will also take up time to update and produce successfully, but if there are people willing/able to do it, then it would be a nice addition.
I'm very strongly against themes - I feel everyone should be free to send what they want, and I also don't like the idea of banning songs that have entered the UK charts outright - maybe the top 5 or top 10, if we have to have such a rule. If we do have any themes, I think they should be once or twice a year, and be totally separate special events.
I disagree with the themes idea, altho I do think it would be cool to persuade people to use non-English language songs more often.
I'm going on holiday ON 15th June. Does that mean I will miss a contest indefinitely? I DON'T WANNA!
i really liked the idea of bringing back the website... now that i read all those comments i dont like the idea of themed contests either... some people might be clueless about a genre and the variety of the songs was (and is) an advantage of this contest... about the top 40 i think that's just too much! maybe top 20 will be enough!
and another thing: do you thing we should have the fixed dates of 1st and 15th of every month from this edition?? that would mean that this contest will last for 3 weeks though (ending on the 14th of June)... would someone have a problem with that? (i know i don't...)
Thats what i would be concerned about too. I think its better the schedule works around the hosts & competiors, rather than the hosts & competitors workign around the dates. For instance what if the host has an overload of work and wishes to delay the contest for a few days? etc
I am also starting to go off the idea of themed contests after reading the comments .. it seems more difficult now About the dates, Kevin has a point in saying that them being so rigid could be difficult for the host on occasions, but maybe we should just cross that bridge when we get there
Well you certainly didn't cross that bridge when I was away - pfft.
What do you mean by that?
EDIT: Ohhh I get it now. Well why would we have waited for you to come back? If we stopped the contest everytime somebody wasn't here we'd never get it done. Besides you only missed one edition, its hardly a big deal and if I missed a contest, or 2, or 3 I really wouldn't be that bothered. And if you're withdrawing anyway .. whats the big deal?
we were bored on our holiday jeez
not all of us can dissapear on holiday for a week so dont look down on us when we do something without you when your not even in the country...
I stated many times that I would be away for a week, yes only 1 week, it wasn't like I went to Australia for 6 months !! and the 2nd contest wasn't even finished when I went, but you managed to fit one contest in and start another one, in 1 week. Surely you could find something else to do with your time to stop you getting bored.
I can understand if you did that during the 6 weeks holiday's because everyone will be going away at different times... but in for 1 week, which is not a lot at all.
I wouldn't have withdrawn, if I didn't miss an edition ...
