Also didn't realize there was discussion in this thread already!!  Man, I fail.

Dream Team, you can take over running the survivor if you want... I didn't mean to step on your toes.  But I am more than willing to run it and make it my baby.   ;D

Disregarding Arcaeus's typical juvenile behaviour, yeah I'm cool with one being started.
I was going to ask for you to wait until the Rush survivor is done, considering a full Beatles survivor will take more time, and we're full of long-term survivors right now.
But, if you've already started, then I'm fine with you beginning now.

Also, after you finish with either Please Please Me or With the Beatles, can you switch to one album at a time? I like to keep that policy consistent. Thanks.  :)

A Black Sabbath survivor was run recently.
Also, I like to uphold the rule of not running 2 survivors at once. Or at least not 2 lengthy ones. If you have an idea for a shorter survivor, you can run it now, otherwise, throw some other suggestions at me, and I'll let you know what you can run.

I'd like to try a multi-album survivor. If these two bands already have a Survivor regularly run each year, that's fair enough. If only one has, I'll do the other; if both are free, I'll take my pick.

Transatlantic
Pink Floyd

When I get a response, I'll decide on what course to take.

Yeah, both of those bands have a regular survivor. And they ended relatively recently, too.

Yeah, Global Laziness is certainly acting as his name would suggest :P
He says it'll happen "soon", but I'm giving him the next few days, otherwise I'll either drop it completely or find someone to take it over.

I would run it if I wasn't doing the Judas Priest survivor, unless you'd let me do both of them at once  :biggrin:

It's not really mods giving permission here. It's just setrataeso making sure there aren't too many survivors at once. Since most people now know that there's a Megadeth survivor coming up and he's already given the okay for it, I think it would be okay to start. Also, running 2 survivors at the same time isn't a huge deal. I run both the In Flames and Tool survivors. I just enjoy doing it. If you feel like you'd be up for it then I would think it would be okay.

Of course I would be up for it, the JP survivor goes 2 days per round so it isn't like its a huge load. But I asked to run a 2nd survivor earlier and got denied  :(

But if he changed his mind I'd be more than glad to do it.

Yeah, before the P/S board was way more packed.
A lot of survivors are in the home stretch right now, so I'm quite happy to have you take over the Megadeth survivor. Global Laziness is not going to do it, but I want it to get done.
So, yeah, you can start whenever you want.

I'm curious, there are a few survivors that are supposedly run yearly that haven't started yet. (Iron Maiden, Porcupine Tree)

What's the situation with those?

Porcupine Tree starts early next year, Iron Maiden starts in a few months. I think Zeltar wanted to wait until the Metallica survivor is nearing completion.

My extensive Kiss Survivor is reaching its home stretch, and will probably be done in 3-4 weeks unless we have a lot of tiebreakers. Just a heads up.

As are my two Survivors - the DT Multi-Movement Survivor (one more song after 8VM and then a short finals) and the Spock's Beard Survivor (now in Nick-era Finals)... that is, unless I do a Morse-Era/Nick-Era type of ultimate finals showdown, but I haven't quite figured out how I'd do that yet. Top 5 of each? Top 3 of each? Or perhaps just Top 2 of each? Still not sure yet...but I'm mostly certain the top Morse-Era songs would beat the top Nick-Era songs anyway.

After these two are done, I think I'll take a break from Survivor'ing, although I love doing them, I'm not sure what else I COULD do. Everyone else seems to be taking care of all the major prog and prog-related bands I'd ever do a survivor for. I was thinking about doing a Marillion Survivor, but I'd probably get as many votes for that as I have been for my SB one.

Wasn't there a Neal Morse solo Survivor? Last I recall, it was on One, but I think it faded away. Maybe I could pick that up? I love Neal's solo works, and it'd be a great follow-up from my SB Survivor.

Thanks for the heads up on all the home-stretch survivors right now, guys! I appreciate that you guys are putting in the same effort that I am to make this section organized.

M, I'm not entirely sure what happened to the NM survivor. I remember it being at One, but I remember taking it off the list when it wasn't updated for a while. I guess it just sort of ended.

Anywho, you're a great survivor runner considering you are actually dedicated (and we're lacking a good amount of dedicated people over here), so whenever you want to pick up the NM survivor, or start a new one, you have my support.

Thanks for your support setrataeso! :tup I've messaged Quadrochosis about his NM survivor, so I'll wait for his blessing and input on it before proceeding, which is fine because I still have some time until my SB survivor is finished.

EDIT - Got word from Quadrochosis and he's cool with me taking over the Neal Morse Survivor, so once my SB Survivor is finished, I will pick up with One and hopefully get more than 3 voters!

Setra, I'm going to start my Christmas Song survivor soon.  I will start a thread first asking for song ideas.  I just took 20 last year and was taken to task for some that were omitted.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I was thinking of running a "Rush Multi-Movement Song Survivor" after my DT one is done... might there be any interest in that? I'll also post this in the Rush-song Survivor thread once my DT one is near the end. The only songs that would be a part of this survivor would be: "By-Tor & The Snow Dog", "The Necromancer", "The Fountain Of Lamneth", "2112", "Cygnus X-1 Book I: The Voyage", "Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres", "La Villa Strangiato", and "Natural Science".

8 songs, for quite a while actually (at least 37 rounds/72 days), then a 7 round/14 day finals... it'd be quite along survivor (about 86 days long!), but I think it could be something fun. Just shooting that out there.

Also, I still plan on picking up the Neal Morse Survivor, starting with One (11-song Restored Tracklisting), so that'll keep me busy with that after the Spock's Beard Survivor is over. That should start around the end of the month.

Yeah, I have no problem with that.
Multiple survivors are not really a problem right now, just because so many survivors are reaching their conclusion.

And I would participate.

My Kiss Survivor will be all done in less than five hours, just a heads up if anybody wants to start something new.

It's been a great time running it during all these months (I think I started it in April or something?) and now it's finally over soon. A big thanks to those who have stuck by me through and through. I won't be running another one for a while, but I'm definitely interested in organizing a new one in the not so distant future. I just need to find a band/artist which will have a few more followers than 3-4 voters. Perhaps a Bruce Springsteen survivor or something?

Since my Office survivor has been buried but the member tournament and other survivors, can I sign up to start it again whenever this section won't be so clustered. After Christmas sometime maybe?
