    URAOPSTAR! It ran for about 15 years. You can see lots of the charts and stats here. It took on a bit of a life of its own for a select group of internet gays!

    I think I may have made it sound more DAUNTING than it is. You can do any old shit and post three times and you'll probably do all right :D

    My pop star will not be in any way marketable or talented but experience has taught me that’s no impediment to becoming a Moopy icon.

    Good question.

    The first number 1 after 9/11 was called The Cucumber Song.

    The Christmas number 1 that year was called Die For You by the Ace*Teens (@AcerBen I believe) so I feel there was some correspondence to 9/11 there.

    I have just been informed by @Soldi that it is still running! Apparently it was resurrected during lockdown. I hope they don't sue me for rehashing my own idea

    Never knew anything about THIS :shock:

    I assume non-competitors will be able to vote? I probably won’t take part but look forward to doing that!

    The more the merrier, in any way you want to take part.

    I think we'd probably need 10 participants to make it work, ideally more but we'll see. I think we have 9 already (a couple of people have said yes but not voted in the poll).

    Are we allowed to give our acts a backstory?

    I'm going to do a reveal on Friday! So send them to me but don't reveal them now.

    It's not the end of the world if you do reveal them, but I thought a reveal might be fun!

    One idea I have been given by a very excited poster is that if you do want to play, you're allowed to enter more than once act. Only if you wanted to!

    TBH since we have almost a week to come up with something I probably will join in :D but I won't commit at this point just in case.

    I used to do imaginary bands and tracklistings when I was wee, before I could even play an instrument.

    My thinking cap is ON .

    I am glad I wasn't alone! It was quite 'only child' of me to do I think, but I really enjoyed coming up with the tracklists!

    I used to do fake football teams and then evolved onto fantasy bands and chart their career. Most of it was broadly based around ABBA and 90s dance music.
