Title: Re: The Song Roulette Tracker Thread 3.0 - v. Betting on red just this once
Post by: Bolsters on March 22, 2015, 05:04:46 AM
Words of wisdom from the former thread:

First, some FAQs for noobs:
What is a roulette? The concept of a 'Roulette' was introduced by Orcus here, as a way for members to share music in a fun and game-like format.

What is the format of a Roulette?  Organizers chose.  The basic premise is to pick/invite some contestants, each submits one song per round, and the songs get ranked/scored by the organizer.  Number of rounds (usually anywhere between 5 and 10), scoring scale, themes, limitations etc.. is at the organizer's discretion.

How do I sign up for one?  Just ask.  Bolsters will add you to the list.

Suggestions for Organizers:  Be considerate of your participants, and those 'Up Next'.
1)  Keep the pace moving at a reasonable pace.  1 week per round seems to be the usual expectation.  Faster if you want to; slower if/when real life gets hectic - but let your participants know if that's the case.  Don't expect your participants or those on the waiting list to be too thrilled if you're consistently running weeks or months between rounds.
2)  There's no reason a complete competition should run longer than 2 months.  If does, you're probably running too many rounds, too slow, or both.  If you can't consistently commit a couple of hours a week to listen to the songs submitted, rank/score them, and write a couple of sentences on your thoughts, you're not ready to run a roulette.
3)  Before it's your turn, try to have your participants lined up and ready to go.
4)  Make it FUN!

Suggestions for Participants:
1) Be attentive.  If you can't be at DTF to follow the competition every few days and submit songs in a timely manner, you're not ready to participate in a Roulette.  Don't take 2 weeks to think of a song to submit.  Be considerate of your organizer, fellow competitors, and those on the waiting list.
2)  If/when the real world gets in the way, and you can't/won't be at DTF to check up on the competition (example - vacations), let your organizer know, and see if you can pre-submit some songs.
3)  Have FUN!

Above all else.....

HAVE/MAKE IT FUN!!



Hangmanen

Commonly, hosts will play games with their participants where they try to figure out what songs were sent, in order to maintain interest in the thread while everyone is waiting for results. The most popular of these is hangman, and to make this easier to run, Sacul made a script which allows you to easily turn your list of songs into blank spaces and then input letters guessed by people to automate the process. If you'd like to run hangman in your roulettes, I highly recommend using it. Download here (https://github.com/Sacules/hangmanen). The script can be run on your computer by installing Python or run on the web using Python Anywhere (https://www.pythonanywhere.com/).

Good one Bolsters for getting this organised.

Chad was into me for ages about doing a roulette and I never took the bait as I found it hard to imagine how I could make it work - my banned list would crash the internet for starters :biggrin:    But what the hell - put me down and I'll see if I can come up with some ideas between now and when I get my turn some time around 2020-ish .

Hey man, great job with updating the standings and with the thread overall. Thanks for doing it! Just a small correction, TAC decided he won't be able to play after the first round, so Scorpion replaced him in my roulette.

Also, my roulette will be finished later today.

Thanks for letting me know, I haven't really been following your roulette other than to listen to some of the submissions, so I forgot all about that. :lol

I know I probably wouldn't have a roulette's worth of stuff that would appeal to you, but I don't think it would be a problem for certain other people here.

Alright, my roulette is finished. Just in case, here's the link for the thread:

I guess I'll also sign up for a v2 if that's alright, the waiting list is pretty long and I guess it'll be at least a year before my turn comes. I might need more new music then.

Thanks for taking this over in my absence Bolsters.  Keep me on the list, I may (should, will?) be ready sometime in the next couple of months to do mine.

Just check out what the younger folks are submitting in the various roulettes - never heard of any of it  ;D   Don't like most of it either , so there's that   :lol

if we're going by a four-roulette schedule I think 2 roulettes can start up at the moment. for what it's worth  :lol

totally not speeding up the process so my turn comes sooner

We've already gone back to three because four doesn't work as well as anticipated. Two people had trouble getting enough people to participate and in some of the threads some people were confused about whether they'd sent songs or not, because they were participating in too many roulettes simultaneously - which they didn't have to be of course, but if they hadn't, Lolzeez and/or Elite would probably still be waiting for people to sign up to their roulettes to reach a bare minimum number of players. Three seems to be the sweet spot for how many of us there are who participate in them. I could have kept going with four for longer, but it seemed clear that it was not going to work all that well and I didn't see a point dragging it out longer than was necessary. I'd rather go with quality over quantity.

Anyway, now that the BIZKIT has finished up his roulette it is now 425's turn.

I'm going to make a wild (not really) guess and say your turn will come up after either Lolzeez or Elite finish their roulette. ;)

Yeah, mine has taken too long already. I know and in hindsight I shouldn't have started it, because my outside-DTF life takes up a lot of time. Penultimate round's results will be up this evening and then it's just one more round.

Elite has started the final round of his roulette, so expect a reminder soon about this. If the pace he's set so far is any indication you will be starting up in a little over a week.

Elite and Lolzeez are both in their final round and (hopefully :lol) very close to finishing off. If you want to start up your thread early like Mike did, that's cool.

Alright, I'll do that soon. I was thinking about starting Round 1 after Elite posts his final results and Lolzeez gets all of his submissions for his final round, which both should happen around the same time. Let me know if I should wait longer.

Still keep me on the list... but I'll go when Bolsters and TAC are finished their roulettes.  I want to participate in theirs, but don't want to host one while playing at the same time.  So, to Shadow/Tom/DoC... I'm gonna bud in front of one or more of you when the time comes.

I've been thinking for a while myself that it'd be weird if you chose to slot in around my roulette and we were both running and participating in each others' roulettes at the same time. :lol

I might have to double check with your Last.fm since it's been several months, but otherwise I've already got my ducks in a row for yours.

Yeah... I've done that once before - participate while hosting - and it gets difficult to try and listen/judge your own roulette while trying to listen and find songs to submit for the one you're playing in.

Looks like we may be wrapping up a few or all of the current roulette's soon.  Taking a quick peak, GoD hasn't posted or logged in for almost 2 months.  Guessing he can go on the 'maybe later' list, unless you want to PM him, Bolsters.

Yeah, I'll give him a chance. Pretty sure you can get email notifications of PM receipt, for all we know this Gentleman has that set up. But if he hasn't responded within a day or so of the start of his turn (which will likely be the case), TAC has the greenlight.

I was going to wait a few more days for the currently running guys to get further into their final rounds before I started my own thread, but I might as well get started myself tomorrow. :o

Yeah, no harm in starting the thread and gathering participants.  Personally, I think it makes sense when the current organizers have received all of their songs for the final round... that's when the next batch can officially start.  When all that is pending is a final result post, that's essentially the end of the roulette for the participants.

Just my $.02... which is only worth $0.015 USD these days.

Yeah, not as many people are signing up immediately after finishing their roulettes as usual I think, which is why the waiting list is looking a bit shorter.

Alright, you're off.

Would you be able to bump me down one or two on the list? I'd prefer to start in the September/October range.
What we usually do is, if it comes to someone's turn and they aren't ready at the time, they are kept at the top of the list for a while. You then have the option of slotting in infront of anyone when you are ready. It's better than moving people down the list because they still may not be ready when their turn comes up again; doing it this way, it's your turn whenever you want it to be.

Since you're supposed to be the next person up, I've moved you to that position.

But Obfuscation is ahead and probably going to finish first, which is why I said you have to wait for one of the other three. ;) Though of course if someone else does manage to finish before Obfuscation you will need to wait.

Just a reminder, as soon as TAC closes his out, I'm gonna start mine.  There's four on the go at the moment (discounting for Bolsters being in his final round) with the return of Obfuscation.  Are we going to run four at a time now, or keep it at 3?  I don't think there needs to be a hard-and-fast rule, just wondering.  Sometimes when certain Roulette's cater to different audiences (eg TAC vs Obfuscation are totally different) it's ok.  But it gets tiring if there are 3-4 similarly styled ones running at the same time - especially for those that want to participate in them.

Just opening up the discussion.

it's gonna stay three at a time, I think, Bolsters gave me the go-ahead because Obfuscation's ended and his is in the final round, leaving only two other ongoing ones

I'd not forgotten. After Obfuscation and myself are finished it'll be at three again, and TAC should be the first to finish of them, so everything should work out perfectly. The only problem I see (from your point of view) is that with Tom and Lucas choosing to delay, Brent would actually be starting his roulette at some point during yours. If you're absolutely dead set against participating and running at the same time, you might have to let him go ahead of you.

There's four on the go at the moment (discounting for Bolsters being in his final round) with the return of Obfuscation.  Are we going to run four at a time now, or keep it at 3? I don't think there needs to be a hard-and-fast rule, just wondering.  Sometimes when certain Roulette's cater to different audiences (eg TAC vs Obfuscation are totally different) it's ok.  But it gets tiring if there are 3-4 similarly styled ones running at the same time - especially for those that want to participate in them.
I think three works best, it's been discussed in the thread before if you're curious for the reasoning. Short version is, with four it appears to be more difficult for people to get participants, but with three there is no such problem. So I chose to keep it at three so that things run smoothly - it's easy for hosts to get players, and the players aren't stretched thin. There's only four running now because Obfuscation started back up and it was a special circumstance.

Post by: jingle.boy on August 25, 2015, 05:01:50 AM
Agreed on the points about 3 vs 4.  I think we opened the idea up a while back when the 3 'active' ones (can't remember who) weren't so active.

As for me and Brent running at the same time, I'm don't want to push mine back any longer.  Guess we'll just have to be both organizer, and participant simultaneously.

On average, a roulette takes 2 months to run.  Your name might come up before Feb, but you can always put yourself on hold for when you are ready - as I did, and others are currently doing.

Oh, and more importantly....

So while I was in bed last night not sleeping ((http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/Smileys/default/mad.gif)), I had a crazy idea that I want to run by you guys.


Annual Roulette Championships.


Here's what I've got so far:


It's a bit lacking at the moment, but I think it could work.

I want to be a judge if that happens. I don't think I would win enough roulettes before then lol.

Theoretically, this would be cool.  Given the variety of tastes here at DTF, getting a group of people to judge songs would result in a very wide and varied scoring.  For instance, my tastes vs Parama; Shadow Ninja's vs Kingshmeglands.... varied indeed.  While an interesting concept, I would liken this to a contest between the Super Bowl champs vs the NBA Champs vs UEFA League champs etc...  While we're all playing the same kind of game here, roulettes (based on the tastes of the host) can be a very different sport.

I'd be in for it... structuring of it to make it meaningful and fun for all would be one of the biggest challenges I think.

Annual Roulette Championships.


Here's what I've got so far:
  • Starting at the end of each year and running into the beginning of the next, there would be a Championship roulette for that year.
  • Anyone who won a roulette that ended in the appropriate year (even if the roulette began in the previous year) would be eligible to participate in the Championship.
  • Rather than being hosted by a particular person, the Championship roulette would have a panel of judges (of an undetermined number) to score the submitted songs.
  • Each contestants' submission would be anonymous. Someone (such as myself) would receive the songs and pass them onto the judges without names. The judges would not know who submitted each song until the results were posted.
  • The judges could also potentially be anonymous, sending their results to me to post. The contestants would not know who the judges were until the end of the roulette.
  • Contestants would be eliminated every few rounds, and the last 2-3 would play in the finals (another 2-3 rounds) to determine that year's Roulette Champion.
  • Contestants would not be allowed to send any of the songs they sent in roulettes that year. This could also possibly extend to artists.
  • The banned artist list for the Championship would be collated from the personal banned lists of the judges. Any artist that appears on the banned list of at least half of the judges would be banned.

It's a bit lacking at the moment, but I think it could work.
I really like most of it - some great ideas here, but strongly disagree with the ones in bold. Would love to participate tho  :metal

Post by: Bolsters on September 15, 2015, 09:47:55 PM
I would definitely select judges carefully so that a wide variety of tastes were present on the panel, that's for sure. Winning would therefore be about either sending songs with a wide crossover appeal, or sending a variety of songs that each appeal to different judges. It'd be tough, but it should be.

Anonymous judges is a bad idea admittedly, as the contestants would no longer be able to tailor their submissions to their tastes, and scoring well would depend too much upon luck. With the judges known from the beginning it would be possible to make strategic choices more easily.

I really have no idea myself if this could work, but it's interesting to think about.

i was intending to do something like an "open roulette" but then my actual roulette came up so i had to put that on the backburner, basically the idea would be you get a decent number of people all participating and they all send a song, and then everybody who sent also judges the songs and picks their favorites to earn points. ofc you can't give your own entry points. i will still probably try this at some point because it can get everyone involved in finding new stuff but it'd have to move a lot slower than a standard roulette

I think this is a good concept and would like to see it happen. I would be more than willing to serve as a judge if for some reason you wanted some lunatic like me. I guess the judges would have to be people who didn't win a roulette that year, so if I don't win anything (likely) you might need me? I don't know, but I'd be willing to do it. A few points of inquiry/contention with the framework you've set out there:


  • The judges could also potentially be anonymous, sending their results to me to post. The contestants would not know who the judges were until the end of the roulette.

I don't think there should be anonymous judges. While having anonymous judges sounds like an interesting idea, it eliminates the banter between judge and participant which is, in my opinion, a lot of the fun of the roulette contestants. And if there are enough judges with a totally diverse set of tastes, knowing who the judges are wouldn't help that much, because even if you send something the one judge loves, the other ones may hate it.

  • Contestants would not be allowed to send any of the songs they sent in roulettes that year. This could also possibly extend to artists.

Not being allowed to send any songs that you've already sent is an interesting enough wrinkle. I think that's fair enough and it keeps there from being a roulette chalk full of Where Is Now and Meteorites and so on.

But I do not think you should prohibit contestants from sending artists that they've already sent. I think that's too crippling. Consider that most of the people are going to have won roulettes in 2015 (and thus be participants in the championship) are playing in a whole lot of roulettes—it's just sheer numbers. If somebody has played in maybe 10 or 12 roulettes in 2015, they might have made as many as 100 entries. Now, a lot of those could well be repeats, but considering that they're probably tailoring their submissions for the host, that's still a lot of artists that you're taking away from people. I think banning individual songs is fair as a fun little twist, banning artists is not because you'll wipe out people's library.

And personally, if by some miracle I win a roulette and end up as a participant in this, I'm pretty sure I would literally not be able to play if I was banned from using artists that I had used in previous roulettes. My library is simply too small and too DTF-inspired for me to play with such a rule in place. I'd have a hard enough time poking holes in a banned list anyway.

  • The banned artist list for the Championship would be collated from the personal banned lists of the judges. Any artist that appears on the banned list of at least half of the judges would be banned.

This is more of a question. I completely agree with this way of making a banned list, but what is a judge to do if a song comes in that they know pretty well and the other judges don't? Would a judge who already knows a song be asked to recuse him/herself from the scoring, or just give the score that (s)he would ordinarily give that song? And what ramifications do we think that either of these options would have on the fairness of the scoring?

All these concerns said, I think this is a great idea and I strongly believe that you should do it. I just wanted to voice my opinion and questions on those. Hopefully you iron out the kinks and get this thing off the ground come January. And again, assuming I don't win anything, I would be more than happy to be a judge if you want me.

We've established already that this was the worst suggestion ever. :P

And what ramifications do we think that either of these options would have on the fairness of the scoring?
I think this is one of the more difficult questions.

On one hand, it's a problem because people could see gaps in the banned list and send things they know are favourites of the other judges who probably did ban it. For example if Chad were a judge he would undoubtedly ban Meat Loaf because Bat Out Of Hell is a top 10 album for him, but if less than half of the judges chose to ban Meat Loaf, someone could easily just send a song from Bat Out Of Hell just to get a high score from Chad. I certainly would not want to see this happen. On the other hand, we can't just add all the banned lists together, because it would be a gigantic list and it would be difficult/impossible for anyone to find anything to send.

Recusing is an interesting idea, but I fear it will skew the scoring.

An idea I had regarding tastes of the judges - each judge could "host" a certain number of rounds. All of the judges will still listen to and rate the songs sent for other judges' rounds, but the scoring would be weighted. For example if there are three judges and it is one of judge A's rounds, he would score the songs out of 15 while judges B and C scored out of 5, for a total of 25. This allows people to create a strategy where they aim songs at a particular judge and the bulk of their score will depend on that success, but also allows bonus points of sort for simultaneously impressing the other judges. The judges could even choose their own themes if they wish.

Perhaps during these rounds, the full banned list of that judge is in play (along with the combined list) so as to avoid people getting really high scores for sending songs the judges know? Though people could still get 5/5 from at least one other judge by sending something they love, so it doesn't completely remove the issue.


Edit: Or, we could give the judges a certain number of blackballs. So using my example above, if someone sent a Bat Out Of Hell song because Meat Loaf wasn't banned, Chad could blackball it because it's from one of his favourite albums.

We typically run three at a time so things don't get too crowded, or overwhelming for participants.  There's only about 30 (I'd guess) people that regularly play/follow these, so any more than three gets a little challenging.  The "next" person was Brent, and he's started already - typically the 'next' person starts when the final round of the 'finishing' person is in progress, and the only thing left to do is post final results.

It's more likely for Tool to release an album in that period that all the roulettes ahead of you end mid December  :lol. The average time for these is somewhere around 2 months.

Typically, 2 months on average.  If people go about a week/round, and run 8-10 rounds, that's a good ball-park.  Some go faster, some slower.

Congrats to Seneca for his recent win, and now tie for 1st (though RJ is likely still burning over that 1/2 point loss to Brent).

Suggestion... for those on the sign-up list, perhaps offer the timeframe that you'll be ready/wanting to go?  I know wolfking has suggested Feb/Mar as his go-time.  Maybe the others could offer their timeframes, that way there's a bit of a better idea as to who's gonna go when.  Sacul, Bolsters and Evermind already went a few months ago, so it's unlikely they'll want to fire another one up so soon (as evidenced by Sacul and Evermind putting themselves on hold.

Thanks, boy. It feels like I haven't won in a long time. Seems like most of them came in a two month stretch, without any wins since then despite coming close in a couple. Hopefully this'll start me on another little streak.

I started at February 2015, and I'm aiming at running another one at February (or maybe later) 2016, to give it at least a year, but after that I won't be hosting my v3 for a few years or so.

I like the timeframes idea though.

Train - 7 rounds complete (this is a decent pace)

Hopefully now that the holidays are over, the pace will pick up (though not all of the slowness can be blamed on the holidays).

C'mon guys.

Yeah I've been saying this too, I shouldn't have done a 10 round roulette in the first place. While I personally think I'm doing my part at a decent pace like you said, I've been a bit too loosy, so even if I deliver results within 2-3 days after I've gotten all my songs, it's a decently slow pace.

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

Post by: Bolsters on January 07, 2016, 07:30:40 AM
Slowest.  Group.  Of.  Roulettes.

2+ months and we have:
Bizkit - 4 rounds complete (current round - 2 weeks old)
Bombadil - 5 rounds complete (current round - 2 weeks old)
Train - 7 rounds complete (this is a decent pace)

Hopefully now that the holidays are over, the pace will pick up (though not all of the slowness can be blamed on the holidays).

C'mon guys.
Concessions were allowed for the holiday season. Train hasn't been doing too bad and while both Tom and Bizkit have slowed dramatically, Tom at least was actually going at a reasonable pace before mid-december.

Tom's roulette:
- Start date October 28
- Round 1 results November 6 (8 days, acceptable for the first round since they can be a touch longer waiting for people to sign up etc)
- Round 2 results November 15 (9 days, barely acceptable but pushing it)
- Round 3 results November 23 (8 days, barely acceptable)
- Round 4 results December 2 (9 days, barely acceptable but pushing it)
- Round 5 results December 13 (11 days, pushing it more but it's December now, I'll consider this tolerable)
- Round 6 results December 24 (11 days again, tolerable for the time of year)
- Round 7 results forthcoming (currently 14 days, too long but half of that was the end of December and New Years)

Therefore I'm not concerned about Tom's pace just yet. I think he's fine...for now. I was optimistic he could pick it back up himself without me breathing down his neck about it.


Bizkit:
- Start date November 3
- Round 1 results November 12 (9 days, acceptable for the first round)
- Round 2 results November 24 (12 days, yeah this is too much)
- Round 3 results December 7 (13 days, again too much but it's getting into the holiday season. any other time of year unacceptable)
- Round 4 results December 25 (18 days which is unacceptable., but no comment made because of the time of year)
- Round 5 results forthcoming (14 days and counting, pushing it again but half of it was Christmas/New Years)

Verdict: I am concerned about the poor pace of Bizkit's roulette, but I didn't want to be telling peope to speed up during the Christmas/New Year period. Especially because I have literally jack shit to do during this particular time of year, and I can't really empathise with people who do. But if you're reading this dude, you need to start getting your shit together - no more concessions if you're being tardy now, and I do have concerns given the pace of your roulette thus far.

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

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!

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!

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.

Damn Bolsters, the scoring system and general setup of your last one was different.

If you're interested in having a bit of an all sorts mish mash sent to you and not so much prog and metal, I could join, since Sacul's is getting near finished.

By the way, I'm not going to host one of these things any time soon, so to throw the idea out there for whoever, it'd be interesting to see someone do a special round / final round where you send 3 songs and are judged only on your strongest.

I just let Dave know I'm not quite ready either but I could start in as little as a fortnight.  Don't know if someone else wants to go ahead.  I'd be pretty confident stating in two weeks once my works slows down.  I have down time from the 15th of April.

I think we can wait a week-10 days.  Genowyn JUST hit his final round, and Lucas JUST finished his, so there's still three active ones going on.

Banned list is now done, now just working out specifics and can start the main thread soon, so a week to come up with my format and it's a go.  Got some money to burn in the next couple of months.

Actually to this man right here everyone, the list is probably laughable.

Yeah, I thought if it would be safe to keep Stefan off it or not.  :lol

Being as thorough as I can, but leaving off artists that don't really fit our genres and I know no one will send.  It's still a solid list though.

I'm not sure if I'll want to run a roulette right after the championship is over. I'm not having days free because I have quite a lot of work for university up until end of June, I have exactly one free weekend until June and then I'm not going to spend much time anywhere near a computer during summer break.

I guess I'll just see how my workload develops and decide then.

It doesn't bother me if you want to sit at the top on the waiting list for several months, others have been up there that long, so don't worry about it. When you're ready to slot back in you can.

Have people ever posted like what they were going to do in their roulette in here before they created it? I mean like I said I'm a little stuck as far as what format I am going to do.

That said I hope that I don't go for another month and a half or so. Concert season. Performances. Assemblies.

With Tyrias and lonestar both choosing to delay, your turn will definitely come up before then. Does this mean that after so many months of anticipation, you're going to have to delay too? :rollin

Ok. Ideas. Ratings. Should I just do x/5, or something like what bolsters is doing? Stars or something?

The most common method is a simple rating out of 10 (or 5) .    Stars TM  is a Bolsters specialty which I would leave to him for your first roulette  :lol    The other option is a stack ranking method (if you have 10 participants the top song in each round gets 10 and the bottom gets 1)  .   I have a problem with giving a song 1pt in a strong round when it may be a 7/10  but jingle.boy did this and ran a standard ranking system in the background and he found that the end result was almost identical.

So.......whatever you think is fairest and/or suits you best.
Title: Re: The Song Roulette Tracker Thread 3.0 - v. Betting on red just this once
Post by: jingle.boy on April 05, 2016, 07:38:46 PM
For all three of my roulettes, I've done a stack-rank scoring method.  I figure, it's like the 100m sprint.  Doesn't matter if you ran a 9.7... when someone else runs a 9.68, you are in 2nd place.  Once you get past the mind-set that being in 10th place doesn't mean that your song was 10x worse than the 1st place song, I find it much easier to score.  You also don't have to think about scoring consistency across rounds... you just have to rate the songs best-to-least best.

But yes... in the end, my last roulette basically confirmed that the stack rank method ended up with virtually the same result as the #/10 method.  I think two people switched spots, that was the only difference.

My suggestion Splent ... keep it simple.  There's merit in the KISS principle, especially for someone's first roulette.  Fire off some themes, rate the songs, and declare a winner after 8 or more rounds.  Complexity is usually more fun for the organizer than for the players - not a shot at anyone in particular, other than myself for my "Jeopardy" style Roulette v2.  Caught a lot of playful grief over that one.   :biggrin:

I was actually thinking towards stack, with possible bonuses attached, but I'm not sure about the bonuses yet (what they'll be, how much they would be worth, if I'd do them).

You've never watched the 100M sprint at the Olympics?  Faster = better. 9.68 (seconds) is faster than 9.7.

Very much looking forward to a few of the upcoming ones. By the looks of it I won't be up until at least end of the summer, which is perfect.

Splent, I've already been thinking about those bonuses myself too (kind of early yea), I think the optional bonus thing for certain themes Bolsters is doing could work pretty well. Only, to keep it simpler, I don't think I would be doing the thing where bonus points degrade when more people get the same bonus. You could still come up with some original fun themes to give it a little personal touch.

Yeah, I have my roulette pretty much planned out completely, even the OP is half done. However, I need to be finished before July starts and I don't think this will be possible if I start after the championship is over, so I'll probably do it in September or at the end of August, whenever there's an open space.  Otherwise i'd have to take a 2 month break in the middle of the roulette, and that just kills suspense completely.

Feel free to already tell me if you're interested in playing, who knows, I might reserve some places for early birds (if it comes to a qualifier, that is. not sure I'm popular enough for that :lol):

I'm close to piecing the things together for mine, just need to figure out exacly how I'm going to handle bonuses (scoring them and what to count as bonuses...)... I may need some advice. And yes, I'm keeping it relatively simple, but I don't want to make it completely straightforward either, I want to add some sort of stragetic element.

I know I delayed mine but April and May is concert/performance season for music teachers and I want to wait until most of mine are pretty much over before I start my roulette.

I've been running the Championship as a fourth roulette so that it didn't push back anyone on the list. But we'll be keeping to three at a time after it finishes, so no one on the list will be given the go ahead when it completes.

As for Genowyn and Evermind, I tell the next person in line to start their roulette once one of the running roulettes enters its final round, so JJ and wolfking have already taken their slots.

Tyrias and lone star are ahead of me so they have first dibs. I don't want to start mine for a few weeks because concert season is insanely busy for a few weeks... (unless I do come up, in which case oh well).
They both mentioned wanting to start later than you though, so yours should end up being the next one to start.

Seems as though people signed up when we had a ton of interest in people hosting, and thus an expectation of not going for quite a while.  Now, due to a departure (GoD), and others not ready, the time between roulette's for people is shrinking.  Hell, Bolsters and Evermind went twice less than 12 months.

Most of the active members have done one (or two) already I suppose.

As much as I enjoyed running the first three, I can't see myself doing another one in the near future.

I think the two roulettes I did were exactly 12 months apart. Yeah, that was far quicker than I expected, but I like to think I did a good job with both. My next one is certainly quite far away at that point, I'm aiming at something like 2018-2020. Not sure yet.

My v3 won't be until very far from now either. I didn't even sign up for the v2 because I was in need of new music or something, I just thought it was an incredibly fun way of discovering that music.

But yeah, seems like the desire to host many more roulettes of the active roulette community atm is wearing thin. We can always recruit new DTF members so we can all send our overused songs to them.

Depending on what counts as a 'common participant' I'd say Tomislav, he has been around in a couple of roulettes lately and I don't think he ever did one. Out of the other more common participants the two that have already done roulettes but have been the longest time since they did one are Big Hath and seneca.

I was useless in my first two , then wisened up and made the next two a couple of people who have some sort of common taste and won both of those.   So the answer is you should win your third and fourth  ;D


And haven't won since  :lol

I have played in more than 20 roulettes probably and have won a total of zero. Though once I came in second by half a point, and once I had the same amount of points as the roulette winner, but the host decided to host a final, where I again had the same points as the other person, but lost. By not even half a point this time.

I don't know in how many I played but it's probably like 10 without the current two I'm in, haven't won a single one. Winning is not my primary goal here though, I just like sharing music and if I can get the host to like a few of my songs or even get them to buy/save an album because of it I'm happy.

Though winning is nice, the primary goal is sharing new music/bands with the host.  I'm on a 2(ish)-year drought myself.  I think I played in 4 or 5 before popping my cherry.

Which is why I'm hosting one.

Which will lead me to knowing more music.

I don't know, you seemed to have plenty of music in my roulette and you continue to send stuff in others' roulette that I never heard of, it's just a matter of knowing what crowd you're playing in I guess. Can only speak for myself on this next part, but you probably played most out of my comfort zone out of anyone, not genre-wise because I've gotten some pretty fucked up shit from others, but because I rarely find myself listening to pre 90's music and you gave me lots. You've got me hooked on 3 new albums or something that I've already purchased so yeah, if that counts for anything.

paramacore

Put me on the back burner, and when life eases up a bit, I'll jump back in the fray, I just don't want to start something I can't finish. (my gf gets enough of that dissapointment already :p )

Well my banned list has grown massively but I dont think I checked out a ton of your music, not counting roulette stuff maybe 2 or 3 bands? Idk

Yeah, I don't know if I have enough music yet to attempt a defense of my crown so soon! :lol

Likely not :lol by the sound of it during the first one you got away pretty lucky with first place considering you wete pretty much sending leftover bands at that point. But somehow it worked amazingly well and God Is An Astronaut is actually one of my favorite bands at the moment.

Honestly, I got insanely lucky that no one had sent Lorde (I guess that was right before she became a quasi-DTF-roulette-fave), that I had kept Tay back, and that I found the right GIAA song to fit in with those two artists to make a concept. You're definitely a bigger GIAA fan than I am by now, actually! I actually just have the one album.

I'd have to look at what is on your updated banned list. I have a few new artists from the championship. But I think I'd have a hard time and probably would not be able to do it.

A week isn't too big of a deal I guess, if you think you can maintain a good pace before/after. Also it's not necessary to wait for Kade to finish as he is on his final round, so if you're going up next you can begin ASAP.

I suppose I should get my shit together and get a list of songs prepped.

When I said this I'd actually forgotten that you were on the list waiting at the top. So if you still want to slot in with a mini roulette let me know. splent is probably going to be the next person to finish up.

It'd mean taking you off the list and putting you back on at the bottom to wait for your next full-length roulette, but the waiting list is less than 6 months long and you didn't want to run your v3 this year anyway, so it all works out.

For now I've put you on the list with a smaller font so I remember, but if anyone else asks to be put on the list between now and the end of your v1, they will be put in ahead of you (though that probably won't happen anyway).

Just a quick update from me: I said a while back that I would have time to start my roulette in early September or at the end of August. As it turns, I now have 2 jobs simultanously during a few weeks in September and I'm organising a small event in the same period. I doubt I'll have my hands free to run a roulette properly before sometime during Novemver. So, as of now, I'll probably choose to opt in and do my roulette when there's a free spot near the end of November.

I mean, I have most of it planned already (and scratched some original ideas because they were crap). It's just a matter of finding the time to actually run it :lol.

Unfortunately it seems that Scar is not interested in continuing their roulette. I haven't gotten any response to my posts in their thread or to PMs even though they are actively posting, and some of you passed on a PM you got from Scar about a perceived lack of interest in it (which appears to be mutual) and a wish to stop the roulette. I see no reason why the next person shouldn't get started so I have sent a PM to the next person on the list.

I thought I'd better post here letting you all know so that there was no confusion when the next person started their roulette without any of the current roulettes having properly ended.

If Scar later chooses to continue their roulette they will be able to, but I'm personally not holding my breath.

Alright, so this might be a first: I've reached the end of the waiting list. :lol There's a few still in waiting as I'm sure you all know but none of them have informed me that they are ready to begin their roulettes just yet. I suspected that this might happen some time ago so I've already got a few contingency plans that I'd like your input on.

1. If someone not on the waiting list wants to start a roulette without the wait, they can do so right now.
2. If no one wants to do that but there is interest in another roulette being hosted, I can run a mini-roulette and fill in some time until someone else is ready.
3. If people are a bit burnt out on roulettes at the moment, no new roulette will begin immediately; we will wait for someone on the list to be ready or for someone to show interest in option #1.

This seems really interesting. I've been lightly following some roulette's to grasp how they work, but it's still pretty confusing. I read the introduction post and all I got was that roulette's are to know bands better? If that's the case, I may show interest in this.

Sorry for not fully understanding how this works.

roulette short version:
players send the host songs
the host rates the songs (either ranking or scoring, usually)
whoever has the most points at the end wins
and the host gets a ton of cool music to check out (hopefully)

I would actually strongly recommend that you join at least one roulette as a participant before running one yourself. We've had people run roulettes without ever having been a participant before and they're almost always a trainwreck, to the point where the roulette ends up being abandoned and never finished. That happened only a few weeks ago with someone, infact. :-\ It's not an actual rule or anything that someone has to have participated in a roulette before they can run one, but I think it's a better way to go.

425 did an excellent job but he seems to be an exception.

Post by: Bolsters on April 01, 2017, 07:36:44 AM
Alright, so I want to delete the current list of people waiting at the top but I didn't want to piss anyone off by just going ahead and doing it. I see it as being redundant for the time being, because being at the top would usually allow people to insert themselves into the queue and start when they were ready (since they already spent their time in the actual waiting list). But since there's no waiting list currently, literally anyone could do that, even if they aren't on the top of the list. There would have to be three concurrently running roulettes before the waiting list would even be reinstated. There is no advantage to being on this list at the moment because any user has that ability to just start whenever, so the list is now pointless.

This also allows me to do something I've wanted to do for a while but couldn't: Limit how long someone can sit at the top of the waiting list like this. I wasn't able to do that because I kept no record of when peoples' turns came up and they chose to delay. Some made posts in this thread that I could use as reference, but several people near the top of the list didn't do that, so I don't know how long they've been there. The current drought of roulettes gives me an opportunity to start the list fresh and, when activity increases again and the wait list starts anew, I can keep a record of when people choose to delay.

I was thinking 6 months. Meaning, when there's a waiting list again and someone's turn comes up but they delay, they will wait at the top as usual, but will have to start their roulette within 6 months or be removed from the list entirely. Though I'm open to making it 12 months instead if people prefer that.
Title: Re: The Song Roulette Tracker Thread 3.0 - v. Betting on red just this once
Post by: jingle.boy on April 01, 2017, 08:05:23 AM
6 months is plenty.  If they aren't ready to run one after that amount of time, they can 're-enrol' when they are ready.

I was just thinking that the interest on these seems to have waned.  Current Roulette's are 3+ months in-process, some on the 'waiting list' haven't been around in a long while, multiple roulette's were abandoned mid-stream, and most of those that were scheduled to go ended up deferring their desire.

I hope interest in these picks up again, cuz they're damn fun - as a host, or as a playa.
Title: Re: The Song Roulette Tracker Thread 3.0 - v. Betting on red just this once
Post by: Bolsters on April 01, 2017, 08:19:20 AM
The only reason I was uncertain about 6 months is because they still have to wait for one of the three running roulettes to enter its final round. If those three roulettes are any combination of new or slow it could be problematic. I'm thinking of amending it to say that you have 6 months to inform me that me you are ready to go; then if it ends up getting to something like 7 or 8 months total passing before they can actually start, it won't matter. But if I haven't heard from that person in those 6 months, they are taken off and have to requeue.

As for the slump we're in, I think it's a combination of factors. A lot of regulars getting burnt out and taking breaks, lack of new people being interested on a consistent basis, and probably the Plug.DJ room.

The last 2 that I was in didn't finish.  I was in the finals for one and in the lead for the other.   I think people need to be full in.  Some take too damn long. That is a big issue.

Post by: twosuitsluke on April 02, 2017, 03:09:39 AM
I'll admit that my roulette overran way longer than I expected. I think that was more due to me wanting to give everything a fair listen and also post good write ups for each song. I wanted to do the roulette justice, that just took longer than expected.

I think both me and Luke made it more important to listen to every song as much times as possible than to have results in just a few days and that's fine. And still, I'm like :facepalm: when relistening old songs realizing I didn't give song a score it deserves.

I had a little idea: how about some short, 1 or 2, maybe even 3 rounds at most, mini roulettes? Since hosting a roulette takes quite a bit of time, how about having the possibility of some quick ones? They could even have very specific themes like "get me into jazz, electronics, etc" or even about bands, like "get me into Radiohead, winger, etc". I'd personally love to host one this way, in a couple of weeks or months. What do you think?
Title: Re: The Song Roulette Tracker Thread 3.0 - v. Betting on red just this once
Post by: Bolsters on April 30, 2017, 11:25:43 PM
When Parama hosted the first mini roulette, I actually thought the idea would catch on and there would be a few of them being run. I myself planned on my next roulette to be only 5 rounds and I have a few different rulesets to pick from for it (including one with two teams where each team sends only a certain style/genre, similar to your idea, because I wanted to get into some different things more). But to my surprise no one else has shown interest in hosting a mini roulette until now.

So, I'm definitely open to the idea, have at it.

I'm trying to think outside of the box and there is one thing that would involve a group event so I'll think about how to coordinate that. I'm also thinking of an actual good prize to the winner, maybe some free music or something.

I'd also go into this sort of blind so I'd almost exempt the banned list for myself if that's OK since there's a ton of "standard" music around here I honestly haven't listened to ever.

That sounds hilarious although I'm not sure I'd be doing that. I've got about three categories picked out so far but I need to tweak the specifics. I'm not even too worried about learning new music although that would be a cool bonus. This is more just grading songs and letting the contestants have fun. If I do have a banned list, which may actually be a good idea now that I think about it, it'll be brief. I'd just like to see how the contestants minds work more than anything even if I may have heard a song/artist before.

Another dumb question but how many rounds has there been typically?

Yup, and usually the last round is an EP round, where the top three/four participants send a small EP with songs of their choosing. But really you can do whatever, the host decides

Anyway I'm curious to see what you come up with, something different sounds nice! And I'd like to join :azn:

There's no waiting list at the moment - all of the people who were on it weren't ready to go when their turn came up, so for the time being there is no need for the list. You can start your roulette immediately if you wish to.

So I haven't liked the way mini roulettes currently affected naming schemes, so I decided to change it. From now on mini roulettes will count as full roulettes regarding version numbers, but I will add an "m" after the number in order to indicate it as a mini roulette.

This decision changes the title of two existing roulettes: Parama's v1.5 is now v2m since it was his second roulette and was a mini roulette (even if only in name), and Parama's v2.5 is now v3 since it's a full-length roulette and his third roulette overall.


Edit: Some of you may notice that one of the abandoned roulettes is version 3.5, I'm keeping this since it was a reboot after an unfinished v3.

I understand that your method made sense from a mathematical perspective, but it wasn't going to work from a practical one. For example if your next roulette were to be mini, it would be named v3.0 despite being your fourth roulette. And if someone ran multiple mini roulettes it was only going to get more confusing over time.

The version numbers have always been to signify how many roulettes that person has hosted, and mini roulettes should count. The only distinction I want to make between mini and regular roulettes is their size or length.

So Bolsters has asked me if I'm ready to go, and basically yeah I am. To start with, want to get a feel (at least from people in this thread) on my possibly ambitious idea of doing an ALBUM roulette instead of songs. I wouldn't have a large number of participants, and probably wouldn't do too many rounds, so I think it would be manageable. But I'm very much an album listener, and I imagine it's the case for a lot of people here too. Not sure if anyone else has tried this, but am keen to give it a go.

Thoughts?

Ambitious would be one way to put it.  Even if you only had 5 participants, assuming an average of 1 hour/album, this format would either result in two things  A) you don't get a chance to listen to the submissions more than once or twice at most; or B) the gap between rounds will be at least 2 weeks.

Hour-long commute each way where I normally watch a Netflix/Amazon Prime show, but would dedicate to listening for the duration of the roulette, plus I listen to music most of the work day too. My intention would be minimum two listens per album, and probably around a week per round. And after the first round or two, there will be fewer remaining contestants.

EDIT: According to last.fm I've done 20 hours of listening in the last week, and that includes very little on commutes as I've mostly been watching Orphan Black on the train.

Been contemplating hosting another roulette since the start of lonestar's, and I've made up my mind. Bolsters, put me on that list for a v3 :biggrin:. I want to do an elimination style roulette too this time around, with around 10 players. If anyone wants to sign up early lemme know here or in PM, and if there's gonna be too many people I'll do a round 0 elimination as well.

Edit: I checked the OP of your last roulette.

Wow, a lot of interest! I like.

Looking at current roulettes, they are all rounding up pretty soon, so depending on whether orcus or Sacul will go off hold again I'm up either after all the current three or after one of the mini roulettes by Bolsters or Tomi. As I have a busy exams period after Christmas break, I'll probably wait until mid/late January if I'm up by then.
Edit: I checked the OP of your last roulette.
Mostly accurate, but I did check out a lot of new music between then and now. And I'm also removing some names from that list of bands that I checked out a couple of songs of and didn't want to get sent (mostly bands from my first roulette that I ended up being too lazy to check out). But you can rely on that list for the most part.

There might be an open slot around then. I will probably be starting around mid/late January aswell if everything goes to plan, so it depends on whether orcus chooses to start between now and then or not. I will more than likely be interested in joining yours, should have a couple of decent things to send.

My roulette won't start soon, I signed up for "sometime in the future".
So I should be sending Train on ahead of you?

Hello kids,

Been contemplating hosting another roulette since the start of lonestar's, and I've made up my mind. Bolsters, put me on that list for a v3 :biggrin:. I want to do an elimination style roulette too this time around, with around 10 players. If anyone wants to sign up early lemme know here or in PM, and if there's gonna be too many people I'll do a round 0 elimination as well.
I saw this only now but I would play too

Technically I could start mine right away but it would be a bit of a slow start as I have a lot of stuff planned in December and school is pretty busy. But I always find lots of time to listen to music inbetween stuff so it wouldn't be a problem, got my format and banned list ready and stuff.

But I gotta respect the waiting list. When it's not sleepy time in Australia anymore Bolsters will probably start sending out PM's to the people above me on the list.

Me not being very active the last few weeks is the holdup. And for some reason I thought Stadler had two more rounds to go before being done. :loser:

Looking at the list and taking into account what people on it have said to me, Sacul and Train are now both up. PMs have been sent.

I'm relatively new around this particular forum and am in dire need of a big expansion of my musical palette that I just can't seem to accomplish on my own, so I'd love to do one of these at some point. I see various rules throughout each person's roulettes, so I assume that's completely up to the person running the roulette, the only universal thing is that each person gets a round? I'll chew on it for a while but yeah again I'd love to do this eventually.

I know a lot of people usually suggest participating in a few roulettes, before hosting your own. I know you are doing just that so it's all good. You just get a better idea (at least I did) of what you like and don't like when constructing your own. It's a great way to get new music and actually, even better, you get to know who on the forum is on the same musical wavelength as you. I actually think this has helped me discover the best new music. I trust certain people's recommendations and if they are talking about how good a band is I'm more likely to check them out.

Post by: Bolsters on December 31, 2017, 07:21:47 AM
I said earlier in the thread that I intended to run a mini roulette towards the end of January and so far I'm on track to not be busy then. Now normally I wait until the thread was made to unveil what will be going on, and I'm keeping the details under wraps until then (some of it is still being worked out anyway), but this mini roulette will have a theme that will probably put off a bunch of people, so I wanted to let everyone know what that was for two reasons: Firstly, despite knowing that not all of the regular roulette crowd actually read this thread I know most of you do, so I wanted to gauge your interest; if there's only going to be three people joining I might not bother. :lol Secondly, some of you I expect will find this theme easy and you keep track of stuff that you won't need any time to prepare at all, but some of you might. So if you are interested in joining or not sure yet, you still have about a month to decide.

Anyway, for most of last year I was checking out new releases constantly as usual. While there ended up not being too small a number of releases by the end (I probably looked into too many new things during November/December, I definitely added a lot more during these last two months) and while there was most definitely some quality stuff in there I found that there was a lesser percentage of quality than in previous years. So the idea I had several months ago was to run a mini roulette and have people send me songs exclusively from 2017 releases in the hopes of finding some more good stuff.

Now as I mentioned, I listened to a lot recently and the reason I'm worried about a lack of interest in this is the size of the banned list. I have completely stopped looking for new albums from 2017 so the list I have now will be the list I use for the roulette. It's 123 albums long.

Some info about the roulette:
I know several of you listened to more albums than I did, likely a lot more, and you probably have too much to choose from for only five rounds. Other are probably thinking this roulette would be hell. Some of you might literally have nothing to send if you listened to too few albums and/or we have a lot of crossover. :lol So check the banned list and let me know if you think you would like to play in this.

Right off the bat I see at least a dozen that'd probably make my Top 50 that you don't have listed.  I'm game.

Maybe one way to 'stretch' the 2017 rule would be to allow participants 1 submission from a prior year release from a band on the banned list - for example, from Night Flight Orchertra's 2015 album, Skyline Whispers?  But in all honesty, if it's only 5 rounds, then no one should sign up if they don't have at least 5 good albums from bands not on that list.

Well,you need more than 5 albums, in the event other participants send you stuff that you planned on sending.

I'm hesitant to join. I do have more than 5 albums not on Bolsters' list, but I don't really have a lot of 'good' stuff to send him. This year turned out to be quite lackluster for me with regards to getting new music. I 'only' listened to 33 new albums in total, so that's not a lot to choose from.

Maybe I should do one in the next year

You can at least sign me up for a new one!

I thought you might be out, your banned list for your current roulette is only about 140. :lol Glad to have you on board though, what I got from you in my last roulette was a bit of a mixed bag but there was some really good stuff in there too. Infact Xerath's III is my most listened to albums of the previous 365 days on Last.fm. :metal

I won't be having eliminations either so if you join, you're in for all five rounds.

I could work on a top 5 or 10, maybe ranking them but maybe not. I'll have something ready by the time the roulette begins.

Well,you need more than 5 albums, in the event other participants send you stuff that you planned on sending.
I was worried about this too, which is why I was considering allowing non-2017 releases (so if someone were cockblocked so much that they actually ran out of things to send, they could at least throw in some older stuff for the last 1-2 rounds), multiple from the same album in a round, and the 'second chance' idea so some submissions could be reused. But yeah with 33 albums to choose from and probably a decent number of them already being banned, seems like a rough time for you unfortunately.

Maybe I should do one in the next year

You can at least sign me up for a new one!
You're on the list! :tup

I'm a huge 2017 music fan and got plenty that are not on that list, so I'm definitely down for this roulette. If you'll have mercy on me for kicking you out in my prelims, that is :lol
I thought you might be out, your banned list for your current roulette is only about 140. :lol Glad to have you on board though, what I got from you in my last roulette was a bit of a mixed bag but there was some really good stuff in there too. Infact Xerath's III is my most listened to albums of the previous 365 days on Last.fm. :metal

I won't be having eliminations either so if you join, you're in for all five rounds.
Nice, III is great! :2metal: There's plenty of 2017 albums I listened to that aren't on the banned list because I'm not fully familiar with them yet, it's been a pretty overwhelming year. I'm working on it though, should have some stuff picked out by the time the roulette starts.

I received a Mastodon song in my first roulette and have heard a couple of others, I wasn't impressed by any of them. I did notice that their new album was reasonably popular in the Top 5 Albums thread though so it won't be any surprise to me when get a song or two from that album.

I think I have a good idea of what I want to do for my roulette. Could you add me to the waiting list please?

There will be 10 rounds, some with themes (don't worry, most of the themes are pretty broad, with a lot of room for interpretation). I'm working on my banned list still, trying to make it as thorough as possible. I'm looking for 10 participants. Any takers?

It depends on your banned list.  I've learned that being in a roulette where the tastes aren't aligned is a frustrating experience for both host and participant.  Some things I've seen from your posts suggest there's a fit; other posts suggest not so much.

Now that I've got almost all of my physical collection on my RYM page, I'd like to do a roulette sometime this year. After spending the last 2 days giving current ratings to my music collection it's clear I need a ton of new music to add lots of variety (hopefully, in time, to the physical shelves too). So whenever there's an opening just say so. Anyone can join although I'm leaning towards doing full albums :)

Sweet!

Also thanks for the add POA, I added you back :)

You know my tastes, and over the past few years since I won your first roulette, yours have strayed onto a different path.  If you're interested in having me, I'll gladly have a go (with very low expectations  :biggrin:).  Feel free to say 'no' if you think it's simply not going to work.  Seriously... I don't want both of us to be immensely frustrated if I keep sending shit that does nothing for you.

Well, clearly not last weekend and as far as I can see, it won't be happening this weekend either.. I just need to make sure that I have a couple of weeks that are not as busy as usual, so that I can make the time to actually write and post results. There's no fun in doing one of these if I can't get the time to write the posts. I do want to do one and listeneing to all the music should not be a problem (I have a one hour commute each day), but the next weeks are busy in the evenings and weekends. I'm pretty sure I can get this started at the end of march.

Looking forward to seeing how this goes. Hopefully better than Sacul's  :lol

Correct, both Kattoelox and Puppies have been notified.

Am I able to go after these two Dave?  I'd be good to go in about two weeks, maybe after or around Easter so should work out time wise.

Elite would be next since he's already being skipped over at his own request for these two, I'd think

I also think it'll be at least a month and a half from now before someone else has a chance to start a roulette, though

Not quite so sure about that.  Kade made his request before Rich did.  If they're both finally ready, first come/first served, no?

Maybe I should do one in the next year

Sorry, I haven't followed any of the roulettes and whose waiting etc.  I thought the post Chad posted about what I said about putting putting my hand up at a certain timeframe would have been enough, especially since it was 3-4 months in advance, but I understand there is a waiting line and I was given he opportunity to go a couple of weeks ago but yeah as I stated more like late March and through April, but that's okay.

Anyway, I'll just have to wait but hopefully within a month would be great.

Well chances are Tomi will be nearing completion around the time wolfking wants to start anyway (or a bit later), so leaving the slot open another few weeks would have just slowed down the waiting list. There was no reason not to let the next person get started earlier to keep things moving.

Hope you're not deliberately skipping over me. I want to be able to actually keep the pace, hence not starting right now. I could do one starting in April, but since there's other roulettes running at this point, I'll maybe have to wait until later.

Kade is infront of you on the list, and told me he wanted to start around April, so when Tomi finishes that slot will go to him. You said you wanted to start at the end of the month and that's over two weeks away, and it was too early for Kade, so Puppies and Kattoelox got the go-ahead.

If it was only going to be a week or something I'd have waited (and it was already a week after saying you were going to start, before you told me you weren't going to), but with you both preferring April, waiting would have meant only one roulette running for 2-3 weeks before anyone else started.

Yeah... we informally decided a long time ago to only have 3 running at a time.  Keeps participants from getting overwhelmed with too many at a time (or none depending on the tastes of the hosts).  I also think it benefits hosts, because it is real hard to play and host at the same time.  I did that once, and it was not easy.

Makes sense to me.  Looks like it'll be a while before mine would start. If it starts by July I'll be good; otherwise would probably wait until closer to the end of the year.

I never bothered to produce a banned list, it was just based on my RYM ratings so people had to look it up that way. No idea how many it would have ended up as.

And I'll definitely be doing another album roulette at some point, just need to figure out when will make the most sense.

I know! That's why I'm also quite interested to see how I would do in your roulette. Back when I did that roulette I was still really discovering lots of prog metal bands and a lot of it sounded new, fresh or interesting to me. While I still enjoy that stuff nowadays, it's not in the same doses as back then. I'm still grateful for you sending me some bands, like Flaming Row or Epysode :)

Parama, I plan on being much stricter and less friendly with the scores in the next one so you'd be out in round 1 anyway  :hat  :lol

I don't even think I made it to Round 1, which meant that you ended up missing out on a shit ton of great music.  Yeah yeah, maybe I should've used in the elimination round..haha

TAC, in hindsight, I listened to that Ascendia album a couple more times in the last month or so... maybe I should've kept you in after all. At the time I was just not digging it, but I think it's a pretty good album. Now I am wondering what I've missed. You old farts dudes have good stuff in your vaults ;)

i wouldn't say i used one of my best ones in the first round since i sent at least three i like more (in the last three rounds of the roulette, as well) but it's up there at least  :corn

got awful scores for two of them too so we are just not a match and i'm fine leaving it at that  :lol
you should've played in my roulette though, i would've loved to cut you

It is a cool album. Starts off a little Lion Kingy, but it settles into a solid album. Over the last couple of years, I have been finding myself a little bored musically. You guys got me in the middle of my Music Midlife Crisis.

The Acsendia is refreshing and a little off my beaten path.

I've used Lor a few times in Roulettes. That's another great album. And even Parama liked Structural Disorder. I love that album.

Their stage presence is mostly pretty spiritual-like, mostly the singer. For me they lit up incense candles and it made Jinn so intense and powerful sounding, I'm sure you'll find some stuff to like about their show man

I wouldn't say it's one of those bands that will really convert a lot of people that didn't originally like Soen after seeing them live though, it's not Amenra or Sunn O))) levels of mesmerizing performance (haven't even seen Sunn O))) tbh but I've heard stories from friends)

I'm sure they'll put on an enjoyable live experience that will be more invigorating than just listening to the album, even if it's not my style of music. At least that's what I'm banking on for a lot of the bands so I'm crossing my fingers  :lol

Elite won't be going into his final round for a few days (he says Tuesday at the earliest) but I was thinking of setting up my new album roulette early as I'm going to have a prelim round open to anyone, so I'd like to leave it open for a good few days to give lots of people a chance to participate (plus give myself extra time to listen to potentially a lot of music!).

Would anyone have any objection to this? Roulette Overlord Bolsters in particular.

Greetings!

It's been a while, indeed. I initially signed off to travel for a few months, which turned into a few months after that, too. And since I've been "back" I've been busy with some other things - mainly moving to a new town and starting a new job.

I thought you had passed away. Seriously.

Thankfully that's not the case :smiley:

I'm excited to hear how all the folk around here are doing, starting with you lot. And what in the world is this?

But actually, I fortunately have a set of rules and a banned list already prepared, and parts of my initial post written. So I can be good to go in pretty short order.

In other words, Puppies, if you want to wait a little while longer, don't feel like you'd be making things difficult on me by doing that.

That makes it easy then. So I don't have to rush things, I'll cede my place to 425. That should work out, since by the time Jingle is about wrapped up I'll definitely be ready to go. Or if Katt want's to go first..... Doesn't matter to me. I have some very unconventional things planned for my upcoming roulette and I want to make sure they will work and I have all the rules in place and it's easy to understand for the participants.

Well, if my results with Wolfking are any indicator, that probably wouldn't be the case, but I suppose you never know.  Hopefully he hasn't heard everything I've been sent in mine and I could reuse some of that...

That makes it easy then. So I don't have to rush things, I'll cede my place to 425.

Cool. Sounds like it's settled, then. I'll finish writing the initial post and start my thread tomorrow.

And I'll try to fit in a themed round where Parama can send recipes for things you can bake at 425˚.

My intention is to be done either right before/after the Progstock festival which is the 1st weekend of October.

I'm likely only going to go 8 rounds, so there's a solid chance it'll be done before.

So, I'm going to add my name to the list shortly, but I am stuggling with a few things conceptually.

1. I don't want to limit participation
2. I'd like have as little or no eliminations as possible
3. Ideally, I would like more than one song per person each round


How can I do this??

Let the participants choose.  If anyone is having trouble coming up with new un-banned bands, just let them use 1 or 2 bands ... maybe across different albums in the discography.

You have to send one album every round, only it has to be Ghost Reveries by Opeth and you will have to use Audacity to mute all the tracks except for track #7 and then duplicate that track all across the duration of the album so it is the only track you will hear.

Jingle and Kattelox:  here's what I was kicking around, and please give me your thoughts.   Primary goal is to have FUN, and bust some balls (Jingle, I love what you wrote on the intro to yours), so keep that in mind:

I want to do a themed roulette using a NASCAR championship structure.    Eight rounds - each round with a theme.  After five, the top eight go head to head in the "Chase" (rounds 6, 7, and 8).    You win one of the first five rounds, you're automatically in.  The remaining spots will be filled by points.  Sixth round (with 8 contestants):  four go on, four go home.  Seventh round (with 4 contestants): two go on, two go home.  Eight round (with 2 contestants): one wins, one cries.

I'm toying with scoring each song like this: seven points on whether I like it and three points on how well it fits the theme (with one point of that for creativity).  I'm toying with no banned list, and if I reject the song, you can either resubmit a different one, or submit that one and have two points taken off right off the top.   

The themes will be more complicated than "Live Song!" or "Epic", but the point isn't to bust chops but have some fun.  I'm thinking like a theme like "The Beatles", but sending a McCartney solo song would get two points (unless it was his shittier ones from more recently) but would get zero creativity points.   Assuming I didn't know the song (possible) Elton John would get three points, because I love Elton and he played with Lennon live in '74 and they were good friends. 

I don't know; like I said, trying to have some fun and avoid the same-old, same-old.

Love it. I'm game for anything that plays around with a typical game structure and that sounds like fun, especially aiming for 1st place in the first 5 rounds to secure a spot in the chase rounds. I also like the idea of scoring simultaneously for how much you like it and how much it fits the theme - there's a challenge to be had. Bring it on.  :hat

I'm with this.

For what it's worth, I did pretty much exactly this in my 1st roulette - 10 players/10 rounds.  Top 6 moved on after round 7, with the Top 2 receiving a one round "bye".  The winners of 3v6 and 4v5 then got matched up against the top 2, and then round 10 was the Finals.

Also... re: banned list.  Leaving it a wide open field kinda defeats the purpose, does it not.  As Sacul said, you could end up getting songs you already know.  jj's roulette had an element where he allowed songs he knew and loved, and honestly, that aspect turned out to be a bit of a wreck.  Having flexibility (as I did with some of your submissions) is ok, but I think every Roulette should have some kind of banned list - bands/albums... something.

I love the the idea of 'interpret the theme however you want' approach.  Just be true to that.  I played in one where the host said to interpret the themes however players wanted.  One theme was 'oriental', so I sent something from Mr. Big's Back to Budokan... and was told it didn't fit the them.  Da fuq?  Maybe I should've sent Turning Japanese!   :lol

So I could send you one of your all-time fav songs and instantly get an 8?  :metal

If it creatively fit the theme, sure.

I would rather have a banned list, yeah, because it would be way too easy to send you stuff you would automatically love. But it's your roulette.

Love it. I'm game for anything that plays around with a typical game structure and that sounds like fun, especially aiming for 1st place in the first 5 rounds to secure a spot in the chase rounds. I also like the idea of scoring simultaneously for how much you like it and how much it fits the theme - there's a challenge to be had. Bring it on.  :hat

See, I'd be looking for something like that Mr. Big. That shows some creativity.   My ultimate goal would be that every player had at least one moment of giddy glee where they say "Oh, boy, I can't wait till the field sees THIS!"

I think I agree with you on the banned list; I may not be comprehensive on it, but I may put down a couple obvious ones;   you're just not that likely to find a Rainbow or Kiss song I haven't heard (and if you're that convinced, let me know and we'll see how it plays).   I think I want to avoid anyone sending "Stargazer" or worse, "Smoke On The Water" (a song I've played live on every instrument except drums, so I know it inside and out).  But I'd like to leave open a band like, say, UFO, where I only know the Schenker and Chapman years, and would  actually enjoy hearing something from the Mick Bolton years or the Vinnie Moore years.    I think now that I type this out, even without a banned list, per se, I will send back a song I know too well.  It's not fair, and it's not really in keeping with the rest of the roulette.

I come to the elders for roulette advice.

I'd like to divide the contestants into two conferences: the Old Farts and the Young Turks, the cut being my age (40). After 5 rounds we mingle with playoff quarterfinals, semifinals and finals between the top ranked in each conference, NBA style. Of course, I need at least 16 people for this to work, and probably a preliminary round to even the field.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Fockoffs?

Many thanks in advance.

Well, guys, thank you for the blind trust. Anyways, my intention wasn't to rally participants (it would be unfair without specifying tastes/banned songs/themes/voting etc. and unpolitely disrespectful of turns), but to get feedback about possible chinks in the gimmicky format which could doom the whole enterprise.

Speaking of which, there's another spec I need counsel on. My banned list from 1600 up to 1996 would just break the www and take me a year to compile, while the one from 1996 onward is ludicrously short and lacking things you may consider must haves. What course of action you fine experienced gentlemen suggest to take in that regard?

Everyone is welcome, but being this is an album roulette, there will be a preliminary round if I get too many people.

On another note I finally got around to doing something I've wanted to do for a while: Making a spreadsheet of all roulette participation, indicating how many times everyone has joined a roulette, wins, and win rates. Anyone can view that here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bJ_rCLWtIco6O-yE4IzA41863HgaqePgBxabe-weWmg/edit?usp=sharing) if they are curious, and do let me know if you find errors.

I do know that there's at least two entries here I need to combine as someone was credited under their username and a nickname, but I've forgotten who that was. :lol I'll have to go back and look for that another time. I actually collected the majority of the raw data well over a year ago, and only just now added the past year's worth of roulettes to it and formatted it all.

Interesting tidbit: The person who has played in the most roulettes is Elite, he's joined 63 of them (so far!). Runners up are jingle.boy(51), Scorpion(48), Nekov(46), and Sacul(46).

To put it in another perspective, there have been 140 roulettes thus far (including the four currently running). Taking off your own roulettes, Rich has participated in almost half of all roulettes ever at 46.3%, and Chad in more than a third of them at 37.5%. :lol

Holy CRAP; I have been in 16 of these?   I'm a glutton for punishment I guess.   You have a column for "wins", you should have a column for "last place", too.  Any trophy is better than no trophy.   :)

Interesting tidbit: The person who has played in the most roulettes is Elite, he's joined 63 of them (so far!). Runners up are jingle.boy(51), Scorpion(48), Nekov(46), and Sacul(46).

hahaha, wow :lol

I didn't know or realise this at all. I should update my handle to reflect this, proud to have sent late in almost half the roulettes ever. It also makes 6 wins look quite sad when I've played that many!

Scorpion in that top 5 is surprising, considering he vanished about two years ago.

Post by: Kattelox on October 06, 2018, 08:56:15 PM
Okay, gonna need some feedback on this. Bear with me, I've tried to put a lot of thought into this while keeping it simple for every participant. I've already done most of the work.

I want to have a lot of fun with this next one, so on top of the normal roulette deal (send song, wait for results, some fun game in between) I'm going to have a creative little story going on with a big ol' board game style map I laid over a random generated fantasy world and I'll do a fun little writeup at the end of each round. Basically every participant is an adventurer - let's call it the Fellowship of the Roulettes. Final Fantasy/Dungeons & Dragons style, real basic goofy stuff. You are traveling in a new land and the participants with the highest scores will prevail. Those who don't make the cutoff points might get eaten by wolves along the way. That's how you leave this roulette - dead or alive :)

Along the way I'll be updating the map and that's where the board game comes into play with your score - a 7 moves you 7 spaces, etc. There are bonus panels along the way - if you send something that fits the theme and I like it, you can earn up to 3 bonus points depending on 3 criteria. If you ignore it, you'll automatically prevent yourself from scoring a 10/10, so one point handicap (I might change this, but I like the idea). When I post results, I'll also post the updated map. If your next move has you hitting a fork in the road, I'll ask you to pick which direction you want to move for the next round, so make sure to check that when you look for your score.

Your goal isn't necessarily to be #1 but rather to stay ahead of the cutoff rounds, make it to the end, and be pawns in my Roulette Fantasy. Because I am a gigantic nerd and want to do something completely ridiculous. Here's a sample pic of what I'm talking about. Obviously I'll update it throughout the game with bigger and more detailed images with where everyone is.

(https://i.imgur.com/WQ4bgR6.png)

So the rounds, I think, will be open, unless you land on a challenge. Would anybody like to participate in my nerdy, sexy party? 'cause I'm all in on this.

Dave, I will most likely be ready to run my v3 come mid-January in 2019 (which will make it approximately three years from the beginning of my last one). Not sure if I should sign up now to be added to the list or wait a bit, so you decide. I'd love to start mine when 2019 is on.

Dave, I think if you add me now, it'll be likely my turn will come in January. Indiscipline is still a month away from finishing, and Stads will go after him, and then we're looking at Puppies' roulette which will likely end before Christmas. Then we'll have a Christmas break and I'll be ready to host come January. If Parama hosts one before me, great, I'll do one after Katt's roulette is over.

Looks like Stadler is next. Time to start compiling a Stadler playlist.

Hey guys I'm working on a sequel to my hangmanen program, one that's not trash better designed and supports EP rounds and customizable printing and other cool stuff I've got planned. Also it's just an executable so you won't need to install Python or anything else :P. By now it's in Alpha stage, meaning that while most regular activities a hangmanen does are implemented, it's got many features left and stuff to refine. Feel free to test it and have fun messing with it, I'd love to hear feedback on it and I'm very open to new features  :D.

hangmanen2-alpha.zip (https://mega.nz/#!7cECHSjL!n2DRYrOQXSghHyuZ6hSuQy3m1V7v2YeKkwZOZFIu4kw)

To use, just decompress it in an empty folder, and use the executable that corresponds to your platform (you can delete the others) - should work fine on Windows, Mac, and Linux. There is a default game loaded to show how it works, edit the file entries.json with any text editor in order to add/remove/modify entries.
