  1. Julio STRANGLES

    Okay, time to decide how the songs will be selected, there are 3 options to vote and i will explain them now.

    The 1st one allows the person to select his own song between the ones he sent to contest, that makes possible to pick between any song he sent without restriction at his own risk plus those that want his best position song can also sent it and those that want other song can aswell sent it so it works to both.

    The 2nd is automatic, and the song with best result from each country will be selected to represent them, in case of more then one best result (more than one victory for example) then the one that got most points will go.

    And the last one, this one would take more time cause it will be just like song of 90's or song of the century, but to every country and that would take long, plus the fact that just like on song of 90's and song of century some people can vote tatical to remove some songs etc, though it is still an option.

    Now vote for the one you think its the best.

    I only see one sensible option, which is #1. It lets people pick which song they will feel most comfortable with - which may or may not be their most successful song. But unlike #2, it at least gives the person the choice to pick a different song if they wish.

    #3 will just cause trouble imo if you let others collectively decide the song for someone else because it might mean they pick an inferior song for a strategic advantage and I can see potential arguments flaring up.

    I agree with JW in relation to #3 - Although I think the majority would vote fairly for their favourite song by each participant, there is always the possibility that someone won't :( Even if everyone did vote fairly, there remains the possibility that a song that someone really likes and thinks is their best will be eliminated, which could lead to accusations of tactical voting (even if there wasn't) let's leave #3 alone for everyone's sake.

    Now onto #1 I do not dislike this idea, and in fact I am one of the people who believes my best song is not my best placed songs, it just happened to be in a very strong edition, and in other editions I feel it would have done better. My heart is telling me to vote 1.

    .... But, as I often do, I have voted with my head. The title of the thread/competition is "The song of the escchat contest" and with that in mind, I feel we should have the best placed entry from each country (as has been the case in the previous two forums) therefore I voted #2.

    You see, I can disagree with JW

    I agree with JW.
    If I just look at my own entries, I do not think my best placed entry is the best song I have sent.
    And I do like the idea of just being free to pick whatever I like best, it would make me feel a lot more comfortable if a song I absolutely love would represent Empelia.
    Am I crazy or is #1 the one where you choose your own entry?:P A bit confused, BAS?(A)

  9. Estêvão Did you ever know that you're (JW) my hero

    While I like the idea of having the best song from each country be entered, I prefer to let each person pick whatever song they wish to send. Hlo Melange Lavonne! ^_^

  11. jw HI. I'M ADAM SCOTT.

    I agree Zesty, but WHY has Gianluca liked your comment when he voted for the 3rd option? WHAT a Ramadan.

    More proof you have shit taste :D
  12. Mina Member with a "past"

    I've voted for the 1st option as I think it should be up to us to choose the song we want. Someone may not want his winning/best position song (s) to represent them (option 2) and having others vote for the song I'll use (option 3), doesn't sit well with me. I see this game as an opportunity to use an older song of mine for people who weren't yet in the contest and it doesn't matter to me if it does well or not, I just want newer people to hear it :D
    However, I wouldn't mind what James suggested..that is, if someone wanted to do it in a different way, I think they should be allowed to (after all that falls under the 'person selects the song' category :cool:)
  13. Julio STRANGLES

    Okay, this poll is now closed, 21 people voted and 21 accepted to take part, only DJ Balkan voted even though he didnt say he wanted to take part and Nessie did not vote, but even if he did the result would be the same.

    So as a result, the people that wants to take part should send me a song selected by them, and sent by them to represent their country in contest, from edition 1 to edition 30 eurovision editions or any other spazz out don't make part of it.

    As for time you can start sending your songs to me after the reveal of tonight, but they will only be out at the end of the edition 30 so no reason to rush. As for contact me you already know, private message here or email or in chat or msn ofc. no need to send me a link just say the number of edition of the song you want.
