Make Your Picks

A Song For July


Same as was done in April and last year.....
  • Join in and drop out as you please
  • No set number of nominations, nominate on the fly
  • Max song duration: 10 minutes
  • No individual matches means no random or host 'fixing' the matches
  • Only one nomination per person per 'round'
  • Only those with songs nominated in any 'round' are eligible to vote; except the 'Final' where all those that have previously nominated a song in the month may vote should they wish

Every couple of days will be a new 'round' where any and all newly nominated songs are up against each other. As soon as voting starts for one 'round' nominations will be accepted for the next 'round'.

Players vote by ranking all the songs in that 'round' from 1 (their favourite) to n (their least favourite). Songs will be awarded points based on their positional ranking in each vote (number of points will depend on the number of songs contesting the 'round' - if 10 songs #1 song would get 10 points, #10 song would get 1 point).

The winning song from each 'round' (or songs in the case of a tie) goes through to the 'Final' at the end of the month.

Songs that made it to previous 'finals' are ineligible -

Tagging some of the regulars who may not have seen this, in case they want to join now or in a later round: @honeykid; @Derek Vinyard; @ynwtf; @Sedai; @resopamenic; @CaptainT; @John-Connor

Maybe some notable new members -- @Takoma11; @HollowMan; @AgrippinaX -- might want to give this a try as well.

So I just pick a song I like?

The Beatles - In my life. (how do I link the title to the video like all you guys have done?)

Welcome in HollowMan,

External linking is easy:
  1. Copy the url of the song link you want (it has to be a free to access link - most of the time we tend to use YouTube)
  2. Type the text of the song or whatever in a response ... i.e. "The Beatles - In My Life"
  3. Highlight the text
  4. In the list of optional actions at the top of the response box (where italics, bold, underline etc. are) click the picture of a globe with 2 links of a chain underneath it
  5. In the box that comes up paste the url you copied earlier
  6. Edit the "www" in the link to "m"
  7. Click ok and it will wrap the HTML for the link around the text and that's it

You can verify it looks right and even that they work by previewing the post.

For example here's the one for The Beatles - In My Life
