should the forum folk decide on a few battle principles? with utmost respect to those who have presided over past battles, of course.
All makes sense and sounds fair enough
These are excellent guidelines, @kln, and would also be happy for a quick turnaround. In the year that the battles started, I must have submitted at least 12 tracks to my soundcloud. That’s 12 finished tracks, one per month, more productive than I had ever been before and pretty much all down to the driving force of the battles.
Good ideas kln, I agree
Once again, I apologize for the long battle 42 I made, different parameters made this too long.
For sure, following these guidelines will dynamize battles
You can start on november 1st and december 1st. Put 2 of the 3 winners on the first and the third winner on december.
Total forum new-comer here… I JUST got into the battle playlists yesterday. It made my week. It makes me excited to follow the examples and production values you all set. The forum members here are as inspirational as the OP 1 that brought us here… seriously. I can’t wait to give it a shot. Not that my opinion matters, having not participated, but selfishly, the staggered odd/even schedule sounds like it would give us all amazing playlists to get us through our work days… while inspiring and challenging us to create, fail, and pick it back up for the next round.
thanks all - i do agree the battle host should have the ultimate call on their set of rules and timing…and it is exactly right that i was suggesting some principles, not steadfast rules.
i appreciate folks who want to participate and ask for extensions, and have even been beyond the original timeframe to submit a track here and there myself. i can’t actually recall a battle or a voting cycle that didn’t get extended.
@kln what you say is totally legitimate… What’s your opinion on my proposition on ODD and EVEN battles ?
If all 42 battles had been as long as the most recent one, the first battle would have taken place five years and six months before the OP-1 was released.
I do like giving control to the curator, and I do like to see extra participation, but there’s no way we’d be where we are now without some expediency.
I also don’t know about casting counted votes for multiple participants unless it’s in the battle brief.
Fun and education are the spirit of the battles, however, so there is nothing to debate too seriously here in my opinion.
Hey guys, battle 42 ( my first ) was a great experience.
@LyingDalai - i think having two battles running at once would be too complicated.
Seems like everyones on the same page Excited for the next battle, where’s it at?
Nice standards kln, I’m on board.
