Quarter Finals

Postby Mr Tapioca Head » 13 Apr 2005, 12:57

Right.... all the last 16 ties are completed now, I can't start the quarter finals yet however as I've hardly got anybody's extra five songs.
If I get all the lists by tomorrow I'll post all the ties at once - probably about this time of day- I'll probably need a volunteer to do the results as I'm not going to be on t'internet till Monday at the least.

I'm about to PM the people whose lists I think I'm missing

are they going to get 48 Hours then?

if so, it's easy enough to just tot up the scores and say A or B has won. i can do that if you really need me to. We can all wait until you are back to see who's out.

It's not as simple as that with all the 'PM' votes, people voting twice, late votes, ambiguous votes, underhand dealings, Far East gambling syndicates, bungs, bribes and all manner of cloak and dagger shenanigans.

Maybe we should ask George Graham to do it?

I've sent my list 3-4 days ago and i was in one of the late matches of round 3. Why are people stalling?

If we agree not to include PM votes then i think it's not that difficult to do it in Tapioca's absence.

That's not my point though. I didn't suggest that cause i was worried about secret votes, just that it would be impractical cause Tapioca isn't here. Do you feel cheated cause Matt voted via PM?

My guess is that he didn't have time to rate each song with extra comments, so he prefered to vote via PM.

It all sounds very clandestine and suspicious to me, I reckon Matt is now the number one suspect of being the Imperial Grand Master of the BCB secret room.
Anyway in view of all these voting irregularities, what say we scrap the current proceedings and reinstall all 56 entrants and start again!

Great idea. Are we allowed to change songs? I have to do that if I want to get a vote or two. :wink: :wink:

Well, Mr Profile had voted via PM for his own list in every round so far, as it would've been a giveaway as to his identity.
