Well now. Let's just say I haven't sent my list in yet. And amongst the lists posted tonight is a track I intended using. And it gets crapped on from a great height from all and sundry. I think I might just change my list.

Either we shouldn't start till all the lists are in or any entry received after we've started is null and void.

The obvious thing to do with anyone who hasn't submitted their list would be to name them, throw them out of the competition and impose some sort of fine. It's the only way they'll learn.

What's the frequency you intend to put lists up? And how long have we got to cast a vote?
I guess everyone wants to have an opportunity to listen to tracks but I fear that if this drags on we lose a lot of voters along the way....

You'll have 48 hours as always, and ties will be posted four-at-a-time between Sunday and Thursday. I'll post a new thread outlining how the contest works before posting the first ties. I do take the point about not starting until all lists are in, so I'll chase up the stragglers now, and see where we are this evening.

Looks like I will have to postpone the start; I've only received 72 lists so far, and really there are too many missing. So, I'll work out who's straggling and send out PMs to chase.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted their lists on time, though...

Sign-up started a month ago and the deadline has been up for a week. I fail to understand how people can't manage to get their lists in on time if they want to take part.

Next year I think I'll desert the "let's make this as inclusive as possible" camp. First 64 and off we go.

Not sure that will make much difference; it seems stragglers are a fact of life in this tournament (and one poster at least warned me that he wasn't going to make the initial deadline)...anyway, the number is actually 73, as I'd forgotten to count my own list.

Could you not start posting the matches that you have lists for?

Yes, I could, but then I could encounter the issue outlined by whodathunkit above:

As things stand, I'm waiting for 17 lists. I'd be tempted to start the tournament if only a couple were outstanding, but this seems like too much. Anyway, I've PM'd all the culprits and hopefully this will lead to action being taken.

I would imagine this also fucks the draw up - more byes, three-ways becoming two-ways, etc. Andrew has to wait for the stragglers. Good luck mate!

That one was mine! A thing of beauty, isn't it. Oh, and if we are loping off after the first 64, I want my original spot back at 62... ;)

Thank you dear organizer! Now where do I find the lists to vote on? How many in a day? How long does this take? A while I'd imagine...

Maybe some ties can be played tonight if you get a few more in the next couple of hours...?

Ideally, I'd like all lists to be in before starting, though that's probably not going to happen. I've learned today that one list won't be in until Thursday, due to personal reasons. I still would like a few more before starting, though.
