Looks like I miscounted on which round good ole Tom was on.

To be fair the previous batch of roulettes were smokin'  - things may seem worse than they are for that reason  ;D

Not really... me/you/Parama just did things at the 'reasonable' pace of 1 round/week - keeping everyone engaged, and getting things done in a timely manner so the next people on the waiting list could go.

Time from OP to final results:
Parama: Aug 24 - Nov 5 = 10.5 weeks for 11 rounds
Me:  Aug 29 - Nov 8 = 10.5 weeks for 10 rounds
You: Sept 3 - Nov 12 = 10 weeks for 11 rounds

2 months to complete 4 rounds, that's awful.

Well, prepare to be amazed, 2 weeks to complete 6 rounds is coming up.

There is also such a thing as a Roulette going too fast.   ;) :D

Going too fast is a concept he's well familiar with.

I know that all too well.

I haven't sent music for one of these things in an age, so if anyone wants a certain loser for their roulette, feel free to add me.

Probably, the time you have to put in as a participant is basically naught, and I think they're a lot of fun. So even though I don't know you at all I'll probably join

Well, browsing through your last.fm page (which may or may not be representable) you have some cool stuff and are into some of the same stuff that I am, there's a lot of good stuff missing though so I'm in!

That's because I won't start until late February. :lol

I may give it a shot, but I have no idea about your tastes, so I would rather wait for the thread with the description and banned list and things.

Is there some way I can like share what I have on my Spotify? That has a pretty good representation of my taste.

You should link you spotify and last.fm.  I don't think it will do it retroactively, but once you update your account, it scrobbles instantly no matter what device you're playing from.

Alright, just letting you guys know my v2 roulette will start soon and it will be my last roulette for a while. I don't plan hosting another roulette any time soon, maybe in 2018 / 2019 at best. I'll fire up the thread for my v2 either Tuesday or Wednesday.

I've sent out the round of invites to the people I'd like to see playing there, but I'll have a few free spots as well. In case there will be a lot of people who'll want to play, I'll hold a preliminary round to determine who gets these free spots.

Check out your inbox and if the invitation isn't there, that means you'll have to fight your way in. See you guys in the thread in a few days!

That's probably a good idea.

I have to say I love that Bodies of Water - A Certain Feeling album though, I spin it quite often and it's really good. I mean, yeah, only one great album from you out of six rounds, but still, it's something. :tup

Oh, and that's how my inbox looks right now. Get ready for the epic showdown guys. :lol

Alright, my roulette thread is up:

http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=45938.0

Everyone who asked me in PM or here is in and you can send your songs for preliminary rounds; everyone who was invited is in too and you can either send a song if you want, or you can trash-talk and distract the contestants and whatever else you come up with. ;)

Just so there's no confusion when the time arises: I've been on hold for a few months now and am choosing to slot in when the next roulette enters its final round (that being Sacul's). I might send invite PMs or I might just throw up the thread without inviting anyone, I haven't decided yet. Anyone interested in joining may want to get their shit together.

@ Bolsters I know your last roulette was very unusual with ranking systems and ranking songs by letting two participants face eachother etc. how are you going to approach it this time? If you want to reveal it when creating the thread that's fine.

All I'm willing to say is that I am not using the same system this time.
