    OK I'm going to give this a go then.

    - It will run for four rounds so anybody who is planning to send a song needs to be able to keep going with it.
    - There is no maximum limit on the number of entries that can be accepted in this round. There may be heats if a large number are submitted
    - There is no theme, you have a free choice but there will be themes given in subsequent rounds.
    - The songs need to be sent to me NO LATER than Midnight on Saturday 6th March, all songs will then be posted the next day ready for voting to begin.
    - The songs need to be sent to me by PM and not posted in the thread, they should be a maximum of 3 minutes.

    anything else, just ask, and if anybody has any links to things that might help (I think people have used audacity in the past) shove them in here so other people can get involved.

    off we go...

    The 3-minutes-max rule could be a bit of a problem for people using karaoke backing tracks.

    Hey STREBOR what about having a PANEL or outspoken Moopers? Who can score the performances and give hilariously controversial comments and then those points can be added to the 'public' (rest of Moopy) votes?

    Judges would be great!

    I've chosen my song - if I say what it is, can I stop anyone else taking it?

    you can name your song in here yes... and as for judges, to be honest it was over complication that stopped this working previously...

    As much as I'd LOVE to SHOW OFF my vocal ability, I think my opinions would be FAR MORE FUN

    I don't think it would over-complicate matters - just post the three judges' comments as you post the songs. It would create a point of interest apart from the songs in the game, which I would say is more what was missing previously.

    But you're the boss. :beer:

    As a former X Factor contestant (not televised), and planning on returning this year, I just have to say that I will win.


    Song; Black & Gold.

    apparently my webcam has a microphone, so I will try this later. Though I will likely CRINGE too much to let it be entered :shy:

    I just recorded my vox and I am NOT happy!
    I haven't recorded myself for about 2 years, and I seem to have morphed into a fucking 90s boyband singer.

    ugh.

    ok so i'm almost an hour late because I had shit with audacity... it crashed and wiped the bastard recording.

    I had to do it again, acapella, whilst my throat seemed to have a deathwish.




    I'm taking this far too seriously.

    whoops :shy: maybe you should give more time?

    Or just skip straight to the final :disco:

    don't call it off though, at least do something for the two entrants :disco:

    LOLZ.

    and mine wasn't even a PROPER entry, either.

    if you ARE extending it then I will call for a re-submission!
    I need time to coat the throat with honey & lemon.



    I said in my PM that I would be the only person entering, for shame.
    I clearly wasn't THAT far off.
