My Snow survivor is over, so I will backtrack and start with The Kindness Of Strangers!

-Marc.

Just an update on my SB Survivor - I will be gone on a trip from Sunday morning (the 6th), until Tuesday afternoon (the 8th), so just before I leave, I will post up the first round of the Day For Night Survivor, and let it run 3 days while the final round for The Kindness Of Strangers is running/ending.

By the time I get back, the first round for DFN should be nearing it's end, and I'll continue on with the following 6 rounds over the next 2 weeks... then off to V, which should take up another week and a half. Then the consolation rounds begin, which will include 6 songs (4 rounds) with two winners moving into the FINALS.

Hopefully by the middle of July, I will begin the FINALS for the Morse-Era Survivor, which should take the majority of the month of July and  a week or so of August.

Long-term, August will see the beginning of the Post-Morse Survivor, with Feel Euphoria, Octane, Spock's Beard, and X, which by then, will probably see wide-spread retail release, and those with it now will have had a good amount of time to let it sink in!

-Marc.

I'm gonna have to put the Iced Earth Burnt Offerings Survivor on hold until I get internet back. I can't post polls with my phone.

I was thinking of doing a Pain of Salvation Survivor. Pick best 2 songs from each of there 5 albums and do a final top 10 list.

Anyone? :)

Edit - Would I be better off doing a PT Survivor? I don't see any of those roaming around...

Actually, both the Porcupine Tree and Pain of Salvation survivors finished not-too-long ago.
Besides, both of those bands usually have the same person run them each year.
Sorry bud, but you may need to pick something else to run.

If you feel like you can get enough voters, then by all means.
You can start next week if you want. Ill finish my Scale the Summit survivor, and you can take that spot.

Can we maybe invoke a minimum interest thread for survivors?  Something like: Person A wants to run a survivor for Band X.  In order to run survivor, a minimum number of people have to commit to participating in it for it to get ran.  I don't want to run a 4-5 person survivor again, so it would help someone like me to gauge interest - and it would help reduce board clutter by eliminating the dinky survivors that have been flooding the board lately.

Yeah I've been thinking about this too. There's only 3-4 participants in my Kiss survivor. If I had known that I probably wouldn't have started one. But I'm going to continue with it anyway, unless the interest for it drops.

Well, only me and DTVT participate in my Scale the Summit survivor. But, I'm only running one album, so thats not a big piece of clutter.
I dunno, I dont think we need a minimum interest policy going on, but its hard to get people to participate.
Take the cut-short Shadow Gallery survivor. I know there are lots of Shadow Gallery fans on these boards, but only a few participated.
I enjoy participating in survivors regularily, but I know others really dont care...

However, if I don't receive any notice from you before July 1, I will remove your survivor from the upcoming list.

Hey Setra, After my Yes survivor is over, I'm thinking about starting up a Neal Morse survivor.

Let's say July 1st for a starting date.

I had started to run a NM survivor starting with testimony a few years ago. I dropped the ball because of school.

I did a Van Halen survivor a year or two ago and would like to do so again.  Any interest?

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

I would be interested, but have mostly heard the DLR albums. Maybe it's a good time to listen to the others too then.

I'm up for it, if you can get more participants.

A few survivors are in the final stretch, so if you do choose to start, you can pretty mch start whenever.
Let me know whether or not you're going to run one, and I'll chalk it up.

OK.  I'll ask around a little more to try find willing participants (thanks, Zydar!).  I'll let you know.

I can participate until 5150. I had no interest in Hagar and from what I heard of Cherone, none of that either

You know, I don't listen to Van Halen as much as I used to, and I should really give the albums a spin again.

I hear Diamond Dave is recording a new album with Van Halen for 2011 right now :metal

I'd like to start a Survivor using the closing tracks of Dream Theater albums. Possibly next Monday, if that's not too soon. Thanks.

Name: DT Closing Tracks Survivor

This is my first attempt at the fine art of Survivoring, so how long would you advise each round lasting?

I would recommend a 2-day cycle for each round.
Pay attention to other survivors for the most part, and observe how they are run. You'll get a good idea on how to do them well.
And, yeah, I'll chalk you up for next week.
