Senecadawg's Roulette (Final Results Posted)
« on: February 23, 2014, 12:11:24 PM »
Hello DTF community! Welcome, welcome, welcome. This is my first roulette, and I hope to make the most of it. As such, I'm going to need your help. I'll warn you right off the bat that I'm pretty picky when it comes to my music. While I tend to enjoy a decent number of different genres, I'm very particular about individual bands.

Now, the structure of this roulette will be relatively simple. In other words, no card games, fantasy worlds, BDSM, etc.. I'm going to open it up for now, until I have a total of 12 participants. The first two rounds will be open tryout rounds. I'll eliminate two contestants in each round, before moving on to the final 6-8 rounds (depending on how long it's taking). After the initial bloodshed, scoring will be done on a 10 point scale, with .5 intervals. Also, AND READ THIS PART CAREFULLY: THERE WILL BE DEADLINES. If you're going to be too busy to take the 5 minutes necessary to choose a song and send it to me, within 5 days of the previous round's results, than you should probably not sign up in the first place. I hope that's not an issue, but I think 5 days is more than generous. Point deductions will be dealt if deadlines are not met, and the convicted will incur public shaming.

The Competitors:
jingle.man
LieLowTheWantedBoy
Dr. DTVT
Elite
black_floyd
Dark Castle
lonestar
Shadow Ninja
Adace
Zantera
Lucien
bl5150


With that out of the way, I'm going to do my best to list all of the banned bands. I'll probably forget a couple along the way, but this will have to do for now… Also, to give you a sense of my current listening patterns, I've highlighted the 10ish most-played bands/artists for the past couple months. With that being said, all of the bands are on here for a reason, and a year ago only 3 of the currently highlighted bands would have been getting any prominent rotation (I'll let you sort out which 3).

'Some Rules'
-Each contestant is allowed to send up to 2 epics throughout the roulette, which I've arbitrarily defined as longer than 12.5 minutes. HINT HINT HINT: you're going to want to make sure you save one in case there is a designated Epic Round, later.
-Once the final 8 have been selected, and we have themes, I will award extra points to one participant each round for sending the most theme appropriate song.
-I reserve the right to modify scoring retrospectively. If I hear a song a couple times, hate it and give it a 2, then grow to love if later, I'll add on a couple points. In other words, this is my roulette and I can do whateverthefuck I want to  ;D
-Once a band has been sent, it will be banned immediately. If you have a band you really want to send, but suspect that someone else may also be interested, it may be in your best interest to send it earlier in the roulette. Saving the best for last might work, but it's not guaranteed

I'll go ahead and admit something maybe not-so-great when running a roulette. I value some people's opinions on music more than others around here, because of past success I've had with they're favorite music. They're tastes just line up better with mine, and so I give their suggestions more attention.

To counterbalance this truth I'm going to wait until I have all the submissions, write them down, shake 'em up, let them sit for a day, and then listen to them. I won't look at who submitted what until I've scored all of the songs, and my poor memory will offset any bias.

It's going to be open, so you can go ahead and submit if you want. I'm going to hold off on listening though, in case another one or two people decide they want in.

That's a great idea.  I always wondered if personal bias's got in the way of any of my impressions, but couldn't figure a way to effectively disconnect the song from the participant.

If not, it's just as simple to share the file to google drive, and PM the link.
