    Welcome to SongQuest!

    Bottom Line Up Front: You submit songs to me via PM. I post all the songs in a separate thread. Everyone listens to everyone else's songs. You vote on which songs you prefer.


    Sonquest is a music competition, where you submit songs of your choice. You don't have to use the same band/artist every time. To prevent people just going for the massive hits everyone knows, each round will have a theme attached to it, such as 'pick a song that has a colour in the song title'. The general point of the competition is to be exposed to new music and vote on it accordingly.

    To vote, you PM your votes to me. Do not reveal your votes to others, or which song is yours. This is to prevent people voting for posters, instead of voting for the songs.

    The amount of participants will dictacte the tournament format. To give an example, if we have 20 participants, I'll split them all into four random groups of five. So there will be 5 songs in each group.

    If you're in Group A, you rank the songs from groups B, C & D. If you're in Group B, you rank the songs from groups A, C & D, and so on.

    You rank the songs in order of preference. So your favourite song from that group would be 1, down to your least favourite song, being number 5.

    The bottom song from each group, would see its participant eliminated. We'd then go into a head to head knockout format, for the last 16.

    To vote when it gets to the head to heads, you just state which of the two songs you think should win. The song with the higher score progresses.

    If you're knocked out, you're still expected to vote on the songs that are still in the competition. This is important, as it prevents tactical voting later in the competition. So if you're going to sign up, please ensure you still listen to the songs and vote, after you've been eliminated.

    If this goes well, maybe Minty could replace Tomohawk as a mod.
