    Cheers folks ! got the laptop back today so everything fine . 9 of 12 have submitted artist choices so just leaves ,
    @Marie , @prof , and @Gundog to go . The choices are really excellent so got a notion this is going to be a fairly quick and entertaining BOTB,s .
    Thinking of 3 groups of 4 , so really only to vote on 4 songs . Bottom of each group leave so leaves 9 to carry on , 1 round of 9 to eliminate 1 leave 8 then simple head to heads till the final . Other suggestions are welcome .

    Just a thought...

    Maybe 3 groups of 4 (or 2 groups of 6) for 3 rounds.
    The groups are redrawn after each round.
    After 3 rounds the bottom 4 overall then drop out.
    Top 8 progress to QF and straight head to head from there?

    It would give more than a 'one and done' for 3 people, then having a round of 9 just to eliminate 1 before the QF. And overall it would be just 1 extra song/round than what was proposed?

    End of the day it's your comp - we're just living in it, lol :84:

    I like this idea Taz , it was bothering me to lose players after only one song ! if other folk agree I think we should go with this version .

    Ok folks where we are , just @Marie to pick an artist and song . Eight players fully submitted , just leaves
    @Taz @Drakhan @Pinstripe to submit a song . Liking Taz's suggestion of 3 quickfire rounds ,


    Maybe 3 groups of 4 (or 2 groups of 6) for 3 rounds.
    The groups are redrawn after each round.
    After 3 rounds the bottom 4 overall then drop out.
    Top 8 progress to QF and straight head to head from there?


    Like a league where points are given to songs where they finish in their particular group , say 4 pts to the song that finishes first and 3 for the second etc etc . I will kep the score and post them and positions after every round .
