    I've voted in the two round 1 Flash Draft matches so far, and I'll continue to vote in every one until the draft finishes.

    I’m sending my pm now to participate in this draft.

    Anybody friends elsewhere with Bear Jew? He was always on board for music drafts. (even though all he drafts is loud noise).

  • I'll message Jew on FB.
  • I don't feel like PMing. Can you just add me from here?
  • Yeah, always hated the PMing part, even more so when we had to PM two people

    I'll join tho

    I think 14 rounds is too long. 10 rounds will keep the draft nice and tight.

    It's a song draft not a movie draft. We go big around here. If you can't take the heat, stay out of Oxley's basement with the big furnace where he burns the clothes from all his victims.

    I made a suggestion. I think 10 rounds is just right, but if the majority vote wants 14, then that’s fine. I think it would be a good idea to start with 10 rounds, and then when it’s all done, let's see how we feel about extending the draft. These things can go on for too long, and it zaps the fun out of it, no matter what draft it is.

  • 14 rounds sounds good to me, looking for some rad recommendations. B)

    FFS Cotton, you're a newbie here. We're professionals at this. We've done movie drafts where 20 people pick 12 feature length films and manage to complete the draft, watch lots of movies and vote. These are songs. They're mostly 3-4 minutes long, if that. If you haven't heard a single song on someone's list it will take an hour at most to listen to them all. If you don't like the rules, don't participate.

  • Usually we do do 10 as a round number, but for the song draft, the original theme/concept was a mix tape, where you could have 14 songs, and vinyl albums could reach 12-14 songs usually, hence the non-round number

    @Mayday. But I’m not a newbie to drafts. I made a suggestion based upon my experiences… on a discussion thread… for a draft. I said if everybody wants 14 rounds, then that’s fine. And that’s that.

    @Willowfang. As someone who always used to make mixtapes as a teen, I dig this theme/concept. I just voiced my concerns, because it’s true, more than anything else said in the above posts, that drafts can go on for too long becoming tedious, regardless of whether they’re movie or music based. But let's hope this isn't the case for this draft. As there's not many participants, as long as everybody makes their picks on time, and don't take the full 15 hours to do it, then things should move along smoothly.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what people come up with. I hope I get some good recs.
