Even then sometimes one will be fussy. When it is, manually erase the spaces and hyphen between the url and the last letter and re-enter one space, one hyphen, one space.

Solved.

You star, martha!

It has to be exactly one space one hyphen one space between the last letter of the song or artist name and the beginning of the url.

You're an absolute star Martha. I was totally bamboozled. I'll know how to format it for round two now. It shouldn't make much difference, but it's so much more enjoyable when you can just click on a link, and I was worried that ones that had it had an unfair advantage over those that didn't.

Right the rest of the ties have now been posted. It did take me a while to reformat all the links to make them clickable, I would have had no idea on that were it not for Martha's imput.

Sterling job, martha!!!

Am I the only one to think that 4 days for these first ties is way too short?

I might be familiar with roughly 15% of the songs - and no way can I properly listen to the +/- 220 remaining songs in such a short time.

4 matches a day seems reasonable to me in terms of listening.

You might be right, but other years certainly people complained that it was going on too long and couldn't the duration be shortened.
You can't please all the people all the time.
Ill' extend it if lots of people ask for it though.

It's just the first round that requires more time, IMO. There'll be only 32 new ones in round two.

Yeah, no problem. Again, thanks for doing this G. Much appreciated.

I didn't get enough time to listen to 11 through 16 unfortunately - especially as some of them were decided by one vote.

Sadly I was rather looking forward to your tune by tune take on 15.

I say "sadly" because really, strictly speaking, I do have an actual life and should be paying it some attention.
Good.

No,why?

If I get all the lists by Thursday or Friday evening, I might post them then. But I won't be around to do it over the weekend and besides the BCB cup has never traditionally been played at the weekend.

Sorry for the spontaneous outburst, but I simply didn't understand the rush to end Round 1 within 4 days when it meant waiting 6 days for Round 2 however quick you'd get the winners' additional tracks...

Well there was no rush to finish round one. Lets not forget that in the past, most round one ties took place over two days, so I actually increased the time. I was happy to extend it beyond that, but when it was put to the board there was no clear desire for this (of those that expressed a firm preference, two were for it and two were against it).

BTW. I am still waiting on two or three lists, I'll begin sending out 'get your fingers out' pms tonight. Round two matches will probably begin tomorrow night.
