Post your comp ideas here, this is where the scoffing or beatific nature of the contest forums' users will be most apparent, when you have a resonable amount of blessed souls in tow, post the "sign-up" thread.

- Sign up threads -
Where anyone willing to participate can put their name forward (first come/first serve)
and where the threadstarter shall outline the paremeters of the comp, like how many rounds/competitors etc.

Thats all, now try and get some originality into this forum!!

what about a contest that people get to write two songs and then people vote on their better one. then all of the 'better ones' go into a larger comp of about 20 or so people. then people vote on their favorite person, the top 10 then have to write another song, and post it. then people vote on that song, then the TOP 5 write another, and the best song in the TOP 5 wins.

idk. i suck at making things up. but maybe about a day or so for people to vote on the songs in each round.

I posted this in the other thread:

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?

HTa'ts been done before, a picture comp it was cool. mnus the various other rules that makes it too contricting i feel. IT was just like a small little bracket thing though. with only one picture. although i like your idea but i think it is far too complex/ involves too much commitment for people on UG. I would be up for it.

Could we still have a May madness contest? I'd be willing to run it.

how about we just have like. a compppp of all comps.
like we used to have?

like with 16-24 people where you can write about anything?
those were more exciting and might get more of a variety of people to join.
and we can make blake and mike and corey and them join.

or have another
veterans vs. newbiesss comp.
those are fun.
plus we will winnn.
veterans that is.

are there that many S+L regulars that are 'old school' (from '02-'04)? If there are enough than thats great, i just used '06 as a cutoff because there didnt seem to be enough veterans

I could think of quite a few old schoolers, but they rarely post here anymore. But we'd totally convince them to get on up in this action. And if not, then we could work something else out. It doesn't even matter that much, either way it should be a nice comp.

what would be really cool is if you could get a bunch of the old school S+L frequenters (like non boxed) to sign up for just one more comp, It seems as though they were very good.

Well, I'm an vet of the ol' UG forums, but relatively new to S&L. It's my new favorite place on the site. I use to frequent the Recording forum, but now I find satisfaction is both writing music, and lyrics.

I'd be up for a Vet Vs. New Blood comp. Sounds like fun.

newbs would be anyone in 05 or 06.
veterans would be 02-04.

that simpppple.

so like veterans we could try to get blake, mike, corey, keeno (do they still call you that idk), the hurt within, um. BJ(streetcarp I believe), and until it sleeps and me and blah we would think of more.
and newbies would be whoever they decide and we can just have a captain for the veterans and newbiessss.

In all honesty; the description of ?veteran? and ?greenhorn? currently being considered; does little justice to this forum?s disparate population.

I think you're underestimating the intercourse that will be promoted in such a comp. In truth I believe the opposite effect will prove to be the outcome. haha.

edit - Steve ruins my life.

Forget that.

One thing I just thought of..
how well will the voting work? I mean, this competition will be full of all the regulars, old and new, so are we supposed to do a trust thing and vote for the piece we really enjoyed more? Otherwise we'd end up with constant ties, since hardly anyone else votes in any of the competitions and teams will be biased and whatnot.

edit II - I love Steve more than anything.

End of post.

I wanna be shredder though

Ummm well I guess if all competitors were required to submit new material, aswell perhaps if the composers remain anonymous then that could be avoided.


edit: Final is your sig true? I hope thats due to age and not the general concensus of the population.
