Can I ask what the situation is regarding a Transatlantic survivor. When does it normally run, and by whom? If no one has laid claim to it, I'd be willing to take it on.
And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Just so you know, setrataeso has taken an extended leave from DTF, so he won't be around to answer your question...

I haven't seen a King Crimson Survivor. Has any been done recently or can I go ahead and do one? Also, would anyone be interested in participating in it?

I don't think any have been run in recent history.
It's up to you to get people interested in it, so ask around before you start.

I believe The Letter M has...as I recall, he did one for all the Dream Theater songs that have movements.

Indeed I did! And then I pitted the winning movements of all the songs against each other. FYI, these were the results of the SDOIT Survivor:
1. VI. Solitary Shell
2. II. About To Crash
3. VII. About To Crash (Reprise)
4. V. Goodnight Kiss
5. VIII. Losing Time/Grand Finale
6. IV. The Test That Stumped Them All
7. I. Overture
   III. War Inside My Head

-Marc.
ATTENTION - I am currently taking a hiatus from running any Survivors at the moment,
 but feel free to check out others' that are running in the Polls/Survivors Forum!!! Maybe in the coming months, I'll start up again with a different band if there is interest...

What happened to the Pokemon survivor?  I thought it was pretty cool.
"All great works are prepared in the desert, including the redemption of the world. The precursors, the followers, the Master Himself, all obeyed or have to obey one and the same law. Prophets, apostles, preachers, martyrs, pioneers of knowledge, inspired artists in every art, ordinary men and the Man-God, all pay tribute to loneliness, to the life of silence, to the night." - A. G. Sertillanges

I'm planning on doing the Dream Theater Power Game again, probably starting sometime soon after wjc finishes his league ending.  July or August, I don't know.  Lots going on but it wasn't too much work once I got things going last time.

That's a good idea. It's not a long survivor, so you can start when you wish.

I was wondering, has there been a System of a Down survivor lately?

I might like to give that a go, if it hasn't been done recently.

There hasn't been one for a few years.
Now would be a fine time to start one.

Sounds good to me.
Is there any way that I should be creating hype?

also, this will be my first survivor, so I may need to pm for help.

There is a System of a Down thread in GM.

I'll post it in the Upcoming Survivors. Do you want to start in a week? It should give you enough time to get some interest.

That's fine if you aren't sure what to do. I would recommend looking to other survivors and just observe how other people run them.

I have. My main issue is how to end the survivor.. do I take the top 3 songs from each album and run more rounds with them as Finals?
do I run consolation rounds for the rest of the songs? etc, etc.

Typically, one would advance the top 2 songs from each album to the finals.
The 3rd (or 3rd and 4th) place song(s) go to consolation, and the top 1-2 songs go the finals from that.
