Polls & Survivors Tracker Thread

This thread is meant to replace the “Ongoing and Upcoming Survivors Thread” (http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=12336.0) which has a first post that hasn’t been updated in over 5 years.

I will attempt to archive all old Polls, Survivors, Leagues, Heal or Hurt, Power, or any other games played. I will also organize them by band/artist/topic for easy access.

If you are planning on hosting something, please comment below, and it will be added.
I will work on an archive. You can save time by commenting with a link to old games you’ve hosted if you have them.

Any questions comments or concerns, feel free!

Remember, this forum is solely to have fun and entertain ourselves with the music (and other stuff) that we love. Have fun with it, but don’t spoil fun for others by trolling results.

Thank you for doing this, DoC!

Some adjustments / suggestions about Ayreon/Arjen Lucassen Survivor which you're free to ignore or add to the thread:

The link you provided in the OP for Ayreon/Arjen Lucassen Survivor leads to the Prediction Contest thread. While this is fine, the actual Results and Discussion thread can be found at this link: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=49314.0

But, while I'm at it, if that's not too much to ask, I'd like both the Results and Discussion thread and Prediction Contest thread to be featured in the OP, as this is something I've never saw done at DTF before, and as I consider both of the threads as an integral part of the experience. Should you think this is unfeasible, I ask to simply adjust the link so it would direct folks to the actual Results and Discussion thread. :tup

You're welcome.

I've added both links to the top. Think that the contest is very cool. I know if I were familiar with his work, I would have jumped in. I should remedy that soon, after I come down from this Haken high I'm on.

And here's my list of Survivors that I have run over the last 5 years:

Rush Survivor 2016
Spock's Beard Survivor 2016
Neal Morse Survivor 2015
Flying Colors Survivor 2014
Transatlantic Survivor 2014
Spock's Beard Survivor 2013
Neal Morse Survivor 2012
Genesis Survivor 2012
Flying Colors Survivor 2012
Marillion Survivor 2011

I've also done the following, but I think they were all purged:
Spock's Beard Survivor 2010
Neal Morse Survivor 2010


I also have done a bunch of smaller survivors such as Rush Multi-Movement Songs and Dream Theater Multi-Movement Songs, the latter of which were done about 5 & 7 years ago (ran twice), but I don't think I ever compiled the results of those into a single thread (but I know I have those results saved to a file on my computer).

Also just noticed that I never properly updated the OP with final standings, so I will do that right now.

Mastodon Survivor
Too bad I didn't know they would release the new album this year, I would postpone survivor until now, maybe there would've been more participants :-\
And I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do. - Michael Scott

Fwiw, I'm waiting for the Marillion survivor. Six years since the last one, and the band have released two albums since then. And I've bought all their albums except This Strange Engine, Somewhere Else and Happiness is the Road.

EDIT: I say that, looking at the participant figures in the 2011 Survivor, it might not be worth it. Once again proof that if it's not metal, it gets no love round here...

Still, most of the band here have strong prog influences, I wouldn't mind a "total" metal survivor, for Helloween, Avantasia, or Blind Guardian (I suppose BG would get the least attendance however).

We had Avantasia survivor ran by Chad (jingle.boy) I think in 2014. I might do it again for 2018, not sure though.

I'd love to do a Blind Guardian one, but yeah, I think you're right, it won't get enough voters.

Yeah, I've thought about running another one since then, but the numbers were so much lower than any of my other survivors that I just didn't think there'd be enough interest in doing another one. I'm planning on doing Genesis next after DT, but if there's enough built-up interest where I can get, say, at least 9 or 10 voters actively participating, then I'd be down for it, but I know there are a lot of Marillion fans who are divided by their works, being fans of either their earlier material or their later material, and fewer who like both, so I'm not sure how many Marillion fans here would actually participate the whole way through.

It's been five years and nearly two months since I last did the Genesis Survivor, so I think it's time to bring it back. I shall plan to begin it in the coming weeks, so I'll have the main discussion thread set up in the next week or so, and then by the end of May, I'll get things rolling! I want to try and get more participation in it this go around, at least 12-15 if possible, though I know a lot of Genesis fans really enjoy both major eras of the band (usually one or the other), but I hope that, in the time since I last did it, there are plenty of new Genesis fans on DTF!
