Coachella Message Board Pick My Playlist Contest
http://i33.tinypic.com/33o2jb5.png


20GB of music is all I will have for the next 3-6 months.

Users will rank bands in order from top to bottom. You can use whatever criteria you wish to choose your band.

A draft of bands will ensue (privately) as each person's bands are chosen from the list from #1-25 in order of availability.

The draft order will be chosen at random.

Contestants will be pitted against each other in head to head rounds lasting 3 days (number of rounds and length of rounds subject to change pending participation).

Bracket rankings will be chosen at random.

Each contestant will be able to choose one band from their team to play that round. That band cannot be used again. Contestants will submit band choice privately.

Each contestant in the final four will be given 5GB of space to choose whatever they may. And I will put it on my music player. And I will listen to it.*

This is only going to be 4 weeks long.

The winner will receive this lovely picture of Coachella.

http://i38.tinypic.com/mujt7c.jpg

The actual picture will be in 8 1/2 x 11 size and will have a nice frame around it.

Let me know if you would like to participate.


*Actually listening to the music subject to my discretion

Think of it like fantasy football/baseball/hockey/whatever. You draft a bunch of bands If someone chooses the one you want before you get it you will get the next band on your list.

Then you have a "team" of bands. Choose one to go against someone else. So you might have a poll Radiohead vs. Daft Punk. People vote and whichever band wins that person goes on to the next round.

13 people. If we can get 3 more we can make a 16 person bracket which would be awesome. I will give it until Monday.


Question:

Are the bands we submit for the draft going to be the same ones that go into making this playlist? I would imagine no.



Correct. The bands you are choosing have no bearing on what you get to choose for the playlist. If you get to the final four, you get 1/4 of my mp3 player to fill up. If you want to just send me a list of albums to go get or tell me you want a 5GB file of static, I'll do it. Then, if you win you get the picture.


Wait, are we choosing music that we like or that you would like?

Well for the "draft" you will probably want to choose bands the board will react favorably to. Then if you get to the point where you can choose my playlist you can pick whatever you want.


Question:

Did my shoes come off in the plane crash?


Yes. The airline called and said if you call their 1800 number they can mail them back to you. How they found out they were yours? I have no idea.


You're not stoned and you're okay, so are you drunk? It would help if the prize was a decent picture.

Well if you got a better one, or if the winner would prefer another one, I don't care. That was the best one I had and I didn't want to rip off someone else's.

how do we play exactly?

Do we message you bands we think will get a good response and we put them up against other bands that other users chose?

So the bands can be living or dead?

I'd pick My Nose, but I'm not sure it's a band.

Yes.

Pick a list of bands that you think the board will like over whatever the other person chooses.

All you need to do is send me a list of your 25 artists. I will do the draft and send you back your list of artists you were able to get. Then decide who you will play in each round. Just let me know who you want to put up first and I will create an anonymous poll. Nobody will know who submitted which artist.

Memorial_07

Ok.
So if you send *insert band name here* and someone else puts them in before you do then you can't play them?

Wheres the beef?
09-13-2008, 12:40 PM
Ok.
So if you send *insert band name here* and someone else puts them in before you do then you can't play them?


You have a list of artists right? So then we do a draft and if your #1 pick is available you get that artist. Then we go to your #2 artist and when your turn comes up and your #2 artist is already taken you get your #3 artist or which ever is available.

So when all is said and done you have a list of 10 bands or so. Everyone is going to have the same number of artists to choose from.

So now you have "your team" of artists that nobody else has. So in each round you choose an artist to play against your opponent. But, once you use that artist you can't use them again. So you can't play the same artist in every round.

Wheres the beef?
09-13-2008, 06:23 PM
No I will just do a quick draft. I already have a spreadsheet made. Basically I'll just go down your list. If someone else chose the highest ranked band on your list, I'll go to the next available one. Then that's who you'll get and I'll go to the next person.

You only really need 5 bands anyways. So depending on how things work out. Like some people might end up with 10 bands (because other people took the other ones) and some might end up with more or less. Then I'll just give everyone their top 7 or something. (which could end being your bottom tier bands because other people had the same high ranked bands you did and got them before you).

I don't understand what the confusion is about.

idrive1life
09-13-2008, 08:08 PM
oh. that's perfectly clear.

It is perfectly clear because this is how I think draft will be:

* Kingsblend listed all participants as #1 thru #16 in a spreadsheet.

*
Round 1 of Draft: #1 gets his/her highest ranked artist then #2 will get his/her highest ranked artist still available (that is, if #1 already took #2's highest ranked artist, #2 will get his/her second highest ranked artist) then #3's turn and so on until #16 gets his/her highest ranked artist that is still available (or not taken by #1 thru #15).

Round 2: It will start with #16 then followed by #15 and so forth until #1 gets his/her next highest ranked artist that is still available (or not taken by anyone in Round 1 & Round 2).

Round 3: It will start back with #1 then #2's turn and so on and so forth.

* A participant will get all artists in his/her list if they are not found in the lists of all other participants.

* So Passive will end up getting all his 25 bands since he is the only one who has Maroon 5, Coldplay etc. He only needs those 2 artists (or maybe 3 in order for him to win the 1st round of playoffs :D) in this contest since he will be knocked out in Round 2 of playoffs. j/k

Kingsblend,

Are you going to make this anonymous by having random KO matches via polls?

Edit: Yeah, after each round of the playoffs (or bitching/moaning/gloating in the posts during the match :D), we would know who won & who lost. However, when the poll/face-offs are in progress, the voters will not know who owns which artist.

Sure go for it. I would be choosing bands that I think the board will react favorably to. But also take into account the more obvious bands and think about what other people might pick.

If you are talking about choosing music for the playlist yeah just tell me what you want me to get and I will go out and get it.

I would hate to use my #1 band in the first round, but if I don't, then it's possible I may not get through.....I'm not sure who I should play yet...gotta think this over.
