True. Might have to keep it to more obscure material.

But, as a whole I love this idea. Sounds fun as hell.

Classics are ok, what I would rather avoid is people choosing "Death Metal" Or "Black Metal" as the theme/genre.

*adjective* genre is alright, preferably an aesthetically interesting adjective.

Foresty Black Metal
Mid-paced Death Metal

As examples for the *adjective* genre topic.

The *theme* topic is a little different

Medieval warfare
Road Warrior Wasteland
Ritual Procession

I would prefer more of the *theme * topic.

I won't have time to mod this in detail during the week as I'm pretty up the walls, but I see absolutely no problem with it at all, it sounds like a killer idea.

Strangles what's more important, what ever it is you do on the week or your internet job?

I...I guess you're right. Good thing this moderator job pays serious money, did you know we can make up to 3 grand a year? You guys mightn't appreciate that, but the UG groupies certainly do...

What's funny is that during the whole of my 12-month service I earn a total of 2593,20Ä. Better to be a UG mod than a soldier!


As for this entity conjured up by VG, I wholeheartedly approve.

Interesting concept. I check this forum almost daily so I'll probably contribute.

Either tomorrow morning or in the evening I will start taking volunteers to be put in the pool of players. Once that is decided I will lay out the final details then reveal our first theme within then next day or two.

Yeah but Mod's won't get to shoot people with anything other than witty posts and bans.Your K/D ratio better be at least 2/1 man.

Question, are we allowed to participate in the reviewing process without intending, at least for the moment to be involved in selecting the albums themselves? I'm not really confident about being able to pick decent albums outside of heavy/power/thrash metal.

I'm a bit drunk and very tired so I'm not quite getting it. I'll try to write a summary to understand it.

-You pick an adjective and a genre, or a specific theme not defined by genre.
-You pick two members.
-Said members select albums for people to review
-Members write review on whichever album they think fits the theme best.
-The person who writes the best review picks the next theme and the next two competitors.

Pretty much right?

It is perfectly fine to just cast your vote and review with no intention of being a player.

No, not really.

1. Theme is picked by the champ (The winner of the last VS)
2. Next player from pool of players is matched up against champ
3. Albums are selected individually by players
4. Voters listen to each album and cast their vote via review.
5. Votes are tallied, a winner is decided
6. Winning player then moves on, is presented with a new challenger from pool of players, and he picks a new theme.

Rinse wash repeat.

Anyways, if you would like to participate as a player, please make a post with

#aNewChallengerApproaches

in it.

Note that a player will be involved in matches, you do not need to sign up to cast your vote via review, you only need to show up and listen.
