Welcome to the 2013 BD Song Draft. I will be your host for this extravaganza of music goodness!
The format will be the same as last year. There will be 14 rounds of picks in which you will accumulate the best 14 songs you can. Each member puts together their own mixtape of songs, we pair members up and vote for whose list we like more and continue pairing competitors until we get a champion.
Signups are now open. If you'd like to participate, please send me a PM.
RULES AND STIPULATIONS FOR SIGNING UP -
If you have any questions feel free to pm me or post them in the discussion thread.
You must be a member for longer than six months
You must have at least 200 posts
You are not a cheater, troll or a complete utter jackass
Cover Songs, Live, and Unreleased songs: Going to try something different this year. Each list may have seven unreleased songs on their list. Now keep in mind that live 30 minute jam tunes may not go over the best with the voting public. Don't be surprised if you get low scores if you have a list dominated with your uncle's girlfriend's son/friends garage bands. Please be reasonable with your selections and use common sense.
How to post your pick - "Round #: Band Name - Song Name (Album Name or mark as unrelased)"
Here is an example of a completed list...

* We will use the snake draft format. Drafting goes in order of placement 1-20, 20-1 and so on. The members that picks at the end of the previous round, picks first in the next round effectively picking two songs in a row.
* The draft will consist of 14 rounds
* There are 15 hours between picks.
* If you miss your pick it will be Highlighted in Yellow as a 1st warning. If you miss again you will booted from the game and your picks will be dead.
* If your 15 hours are up and the next person hasn't made their pick, your turn is still missed. If you make your pick it will be deleted.
* Any suspected cheating will get you kicked from the game and banned.
* Please use and support the PM system! We're all in this together to make it as fun as possible and keeping the game in motion helps a lot.
* DO NOT EDIT YOUR POSTS. If you make a mistake let me know first.
Will keep a list of who has sent PMs here (not a draft order but just a list to make sure there is no mistakes getting folks in). Sign up's will last until Saturday June 8 and the draft itself will begin late Sunday night June 9th.
