Does this mean the lists have to be with you by midnight tonight (23rd) or midnight 24th?

I'd like to have them by midnight tonight (23rd), if possible. However, as I won't be posting the first ties until teatime tomorrow, before 6pm on the 24th will be fine.

I would go stronger than "ideally" on this one. That deadline should either be mandatory or we should wait till all the lists are in. In theory, if I didn't bother putting my list together until say Wednesday, I would have had a couple of days to see whats hot and whats not, analyse voting patterns, run up a few pie charts, etc. In practice of course that would be stupid as there appears to be fuck-all logic in Cup voting practices. Nevertheless the deadline has been there for a week and people knew what they were getting into when they signed up.

As one of the "lets make this as inclusive as possible" brigade, I feel a bit of a dickhead now :lol: .

Indeed. A deadline's a deadline.

Well, I now have 69 lists, and they're coming in quite quickly. I'll send chasing PMs to all the stragglers at the end of tonight. I may even try naming and shaming...

I'm in. Three strong cuts remaining on the bench, I hope that I am holding the right ones back. Does not look like a usual list for me.

I'm now experiencing that feeling you get after you've posted your list and are thinking 'why did I pick that?'

Up to 72 lists in now; also John K has promised me a list tomorrow, while Griff said he'd get a list to me tonight. Come on everyone who hasn't sent me a list!

At least we'll have enough ties to get stuck into but for crying out loud, how hard is it to get your songs in on time?!

Can you put their names up on this thread and then if they haven't got a list in by tomorrow afternoon, the rest of us can make up their lists instead?

Not necessarily 'why did I pick that?', but of course, what I knew would happen - that I would re-think it, and be reminded of songs that might've played better (curse my feeble brain). But I was afraid of over-thinking, and sent it in days ago, on a wing and a prayer.


D'oh.

How hard is that?

Well, instructions about how to do the you tube links thing would be good - sorry if they are elsewhere. Doesn't seem to work right with either 'youtube' or 'url' links.

So if my youtube link has the code v=Rfr9bhSmfXc&ob , how do I send that to you within a pm?
