I was thinking a HUGE round robit tournament to determine the best writer of UG at the moment. Have 32 people in it.

It would be the comps of comps, and it would be worth 20 points. This would trigger the Grand Champion Ship for points, and the winner of that would get a thread dedicated to themselves, UNTIL another grand championship is triggered.

It would probably take around a month or so.

I'll second that. It'll take years for any of us to get to 50 points. This would make it quicker. But the points right now have to count for something. How about the top ten get a first round by? That would be fair.

SilenceEvolves

But illogical in a competition with 32 participants. You should do the rankings based on points. Anyone who doesn't have points is lower than those who do, even the ones in negative.

Something like this, I mean.

Most points = 1 seed.
Some ignoramus with no points = 32 seed.

Round one! 1 seed vs. 32 seed.
Ignoramus wins because Matt writes like a dyslexic 322 mhz intel celeron 2 processor.

But yeah, I support the idea as well.

I don't think round robin tournament is what I intended to say.

I meant like a College football type of thing. Where there are four divisions each has 8 eight competitors.

I don't know what the hell a round robin tournament is. You guys decide:

Round Robin (which I'm only assuming is like a Royal Rumble)
or
College Football Style.

Corey, I'm sorry for saying that you sucked at everything including sucking, but it's apparent now that you actually don't suck. You're quite the funny fellow I must say.

edit - I forgot to add, the best writer comp is basically the same thing as a no themed comp, except with a larger roster. I don't really think it should be called 'the best writer' comp.

Also, I think if you have negative points and are a regular in here, you should be seeded higher than a noob with no points. Because if you have negative points, that means that you have attempted to write songs and probably are a better songwriter than someone who is new to S'n'L.

SilenceEvolves

leftyrockr
01-21-2006, 05:53 PM
Oh, another thought. Should there be points awarded to the people who come close to first? I think since this is such a huge tournament, the top 6 should get points. This would mean we would have to do losers brackets starting at the top 8. Just my opinion, but with such a big tournament, there should be more than one person who gets points.

monstertaco
01-23-2006, 02:14 PM
If you're doing it bracket style you would just need to give points to the final eight. Or four (six seems a little random).

leftyrockr
01-23-2006, 05:08 PM
^If that's the case, then we should do 8, since this is such a huge comp.

yeah he's banned yet for another 3 weeks, but tbh, I hardly see that we shoudl wait for him. last time he came abck from his ban he showed no signs of doing the comp again, so when all these comps have died down in a few days or so I'll set one up mebbe.

01-24-2006, 10:06 PM
^ When you get banned, you get sent an e-mail and get put in the forum of the banned. You have a chance to defend yourself, then you get banned or reinstated into UG. I've personally been there twice, with no ban yet. The mods are usually understanding, so unless you have been a complete dumbass, you get back on to UG.

furtherfan21

j/k

Both times I've been banned, it's been a case of mistaken identity. The mods thought I was using multi's both times, and I wasn't.

Back to the reason this thread was posted, I can set up the comp when some of the other comps end.

We tried it once, and everybody voted for one song, which was great for them, but not so for trying to choose a 2nd and 3rd place.

its sad to see the comps forum like this, i dont think its been so dead...at least not since ive been here, and thats before my sign-up date.

More reasons to write S+L a toe tag.

As long as anyone is enjoying it, there is no reason at all to write S&L a toe tag. Especially not the main Lyrics forum, but I have a reason you were referring to this one.

Hey I don't know if this has been done before, but I think it might be a lot o' fun to try a Parody Comp.
Basically this might entail picking an S&L (or some other well-known) writer, and writing in their style, to comedic effect.
IDK, could be a lot of fun, people could take themselves less seriously for a while, heh. I'll set it up if anyone thinks this mumbo-jumbo could fly. :confused:

well, i was just reading the moving pictures thread in the pit and i realized that that would be a very good comp (if it hasnt been done before). The comp would be me posting a picture and then everyone who enters would have two days from posting to write a poem based on it (with other various rules maybe, like only iambic pentameter or something) We would repeat the process 3 times, posting the entries in seperate threads based on the rounds and which picture they correspond to. i would then assign points to the 1st 2nd and 3rd place winners in each round and the person with the highest number of points in the end wins the comp. if that made any sense, would that be an alright idea for a comp?
