I know this seems like quite a bit of work but I hope we're not losing momentum on this.

Have I missed any or is Harvey's the last one in?

I think Molony did his and it hasn't been put here yet and then Penk was away so we missed a week, I suppose that leads to confusion over who is supposed to post today

...and bad admin. :oops:

It has all got a bit confusing because Penk had to miss his week. It should be Penk next and then Masked Man. I'll PM them both.

So I've not missed Molony's then? Good, I've been wondering how many Macca tunes will be in it.

I just wanted to say that I am really enjoying these. I'm probably not going to post comments on individual submissions but I am looking forward to reading them all.

They're great.

If anyone needs more time, I have mine just about ready to go and I won't be here for the weekend when I'm actually due to post it so I'm happy to go ahead early.

I think Jimmy Jazz and Jethro are due before me.

If not, no worries!

I'm really looking forward to Jethro/Paul's, I hope he retells the pint racist interface story again, that is my all time favourite Mojo/BCB story. Well that and Oscar's fight in the bogs with the local hard man whose girlfriend he squired out.

I'd post it, B. Seriously. I don't see why we need to hang around waiting when others have theirs ready to go. And it's unlikely JJ will put one together during the week.

I suppose you could PM him and check.

It's a bit cack putting your name on a list and then doing nothing about it when you time comes.

Who's running this, can we have PM the week before you are due so there are no excuses?

or if he insists people must post weekly, do it in groups of 5 instead of only one at a time!

I like savouring one a week, it allows you to concentrate on the individual and listen to their tracks, if you have multiple DIDs then some people will just get lost.

It just needs people to honour the commitment, you can prepare ahead of time if you are going to be on holiday

i still don't agree... what if someone's thread takes all of 10 mins to read and listen to, and maybe another 3 minutes to comment on... then what?....then we wait until someone to maybe remember it's their turn and post it... rather than have 4 other threads to visit and enjoy in the meantime....

i just posted a poll to see what everybody's preferences are about the timing of the execution of this project...

I do send a reminder out (though I have missed one week). Usually at least a couple of weeks in advance.

I commented on another thread on this:

I've been trying to remind people that there turn is coming up at least a couple of weeks in advance. I don't always remember and I don't want to own this as such. The list is in the DID subsection of YY and so people should know when they are due.

A number of people have commented at the speed this will go at and some have suggested that people should be allowed to post when they are ready. There was some debate around this when the project was first launched. My feeling when I started this was that once a week allows time for other BCBers to read, listen and respond. I've seen a number of good ideas for threads spoiled (for me) because everyone posts at the same time and I don't have the time to take it all in. The front page gets filled up with 20 similar posts and then within a day or two they've all gone. I also get the impression that when this happens people aren't reading others - they are more interested in getting their own contribution up.

I like the week gap. I look forward to seeing the next one each weekend. But I must admit that I never expected 70 people to sign up and that this would take over a year to complete.

As I said above I never had any desire to own this and so don't want to make any rules. I'm happy it's popular and happy for it to take whatever course it might take.


I should add that from now I am happy for someone else to take this on and run it in whatever format they want.

A sticky with a list of names that can be appended with new members and ticked off when people have done their DID

A sticky saying who's coming up in the next 4 weeks.

A template for each week with:

Space for a photo
A list of questions
8 youtube videos with explanations
A book
A luxury

And then the section will gradually fill up with threads named for each BCB member where the template will be filled in by that weeks BCBer and comments left

One a week posted on Sunday evening, that allows plenty of time to listen to the 8 songs and leave comments
