Decided against it, martha?


I hate being harsh too. Such a drag we always have to go thru this. Every time.....

Yeah I don't want to just kick it off without them. Felix already messaged me on Facebook saying he'll get them to me soon and Joels344 couldn't log in due to password issues and isn't connected with me on Facebook....

BCB CUP 2017 - Sign Up here!!!

Unread postby martha » 09 Feb 2017, 08:23

I am proposing a Play-In Game. to resolve two issues.

1. The late lists. We have 4 people who did not get their lists to me on time.
2. The late sign-ups. We have 4 people who signed up after the cut off point of 32.

4 people haven't sent their lists in to me by the cut-off time of midnight GMT Wednesday as I requested. Without them we would have a nice power of 2 make up of 32 players, thus eliminating the need for seeding and byes etc... but they want to play and I do really want everyone who wants to play to be able to play.

So...rather than boot them out I've decided to do a Play-in Game. The play-in game will be a competition between the four players with as yet unreceived LATE lists and the 4 players who signed up AFTER the list was capped.* These 8 people would go head to head in two person matches with THREE tracks each.

Play-in participants would be those with late lists:
joels344
Buddha B-Rex
toomanyhatz
Neige

and those who signed up after the 32 player.
Johnny Fartpants
driftin
The Fish
Jumper K

Hopefully that is acceptable to everyone.

All 8 of these players must send me 3 tracks more or less immediately for the play-in game-- they don't need to be tracks from your cup lists at all -- just 3 great tracks of your choosing for a Play-In game. We'll then vote and thereby eliminate 4 players, after which we will kick off the official cup.

Of course this presupposes that I will actually get the three play in tracks from the 8 players and that the four late lists will come in today.

If I don't get the ten tracks and three play in track from the late folks by 3:00 pm MST TODAY we'll just have to kick it off without them. I will be eliminating the four players who didn't get their lists to me in time - Joels344, Budda B-Rex, toomanyhatz, and Neige, sorry guys.

For full disclosure, Joel was locked out of the boards and Neige has said he'll get them to me on his lunch break...

Ah sweet love of god.
Would that I had the luxury of being able to sit back and pop popcorn at the moment.

So...I'm off to bed folks. It's 2:30 am here. I'll be back on around 8am MST.

3 pm MST is in 12 hours, right?

In that case, you'll have my 10 tracks (+ the 3 additional ones) in time. :P

Don't use the [url] tags. Just copy and paste the Youtube link as is. Worked for me.


Martha clarified things for me and has sorted it out.

Bless her.

I have Joel and Buddha's lists and 3 play in tracks. Waiting on Hatz and Neige. Will need 3 tracks from the stand by list (Fartpants, driftin, The Fish, and Jumper K) for the play-in game.

Submitted my 3 extras. Looking forward to having 95% of you play the first 10 seconds, frowning, then voting for the other list :D

My 3 extra songs are submitted. I now look forward to going out even before the first round.

Can I politely suggest that if the others don't have their 3 tracks in by tonight, then fuck 'em?

Thanks awfully!

OK, as much as I hate to admit it, I'm not terribly inspired to come up with 13 tracks in the next couple hours. It came at a very busy time for me, and snuck up as usual. I hate to deny somebody else a place just 'cause I couldn't get my shit together. I promise I'll vote.

That's weird - I can't find my post from last nite where I said you usually vote against me. :)


Martha must've wiped it out with that poll.

Hi Martha,

Any chance of implementing the 'Quick Reply' option for matches?
