    oh, also, comments about format, whether we should upload to one place, whether the final frenzy was a good idea, whether 8 weeks was too long/too short and anything else. Positives and negatives please, from both participants and observers!

    Loved the final frenzy. Great way to decide an actual winner without it dragging on forever. 8 weeks seems like a good length, especially if we can get more people in on this. The only thing I didn't like was having to dig through each thread to find the submissions. Maybe we could do a dedicated submission thread and a dedicated discussion thread for each season?

    Regarding the "final frenzy" how about this...

    Same rules as 1st season. Once the # of people drops to three, it becomes a race to 6 points where 1st person who posts their weekly effort gets 3 points, 2nd person gets 2 points, 3rd gets 1 point.

    I dug it. It did seem to go on for a long time, so maybe do 6 weeks? Or, at least poll everyone and see what the consensus is? Otherwise, I really enjoyed it and the final frenzy was fitting since I had a high fever the 7-8th weeks...

    Good idea. But, make sure to have a new submission thread each week. Otherwise, it gets tricky trying to know what's current and what isn't.

    Another good idea, although I didn't mind the way it was in the first season.

    I'd also love to see/hear a bunch of the submissions in one Soundcloud playlist. Not sure how that would work logistically, but it would be cool to just hit play on a playlist and listen to them all consecutively, like a compilation album.

    Either and, or, thanks for stewarding this, 7DT, it was a lot of fun and really stretched me to get some songs done. Now I need to get the vox done and final mix downs...

    At the end of this month I'll be moving house and April will be spent decorating and putting a music room together so May works for me too.

    I voted for April because I'm an impatient little fuck, but may would work for me as well.

    Agreed on the playlist.

    For the thread I was thinking something like this: One big thread for each season. Every week is delineated by a post stating the week and who's left. As long as there isn't any back and forth going on in the thread, it would hopefully stay clean. Individual threads would definitely be the cleanest, but if this ends up going on for a while, it might be a pain in the ass to go back and actually find each individual week's threads.

    Something like:

    (SC link)
    [week header]
