My only problem is there's just too many. We should've stuck to one ALbum at a time....

I agree. I thought that was the original plan. We'd go through one album at a time. But when I got back the board was filled with survivors. Next time I'm leaving a babysitter.

Anyway, I've got another complaint about the survivors. Round 2 voting is starting while round 1 voting is still open. Before you move on to a new round, you need to either post that voting is over and you want the topic locked, or send a PM to Whizzi, Scottidog, or myself and ask us to lock the topic.

Only once the previous round is locked should you start the next round.

Well, I volunteered instead of all 27 songs, do the winning Survivor songs and all do one big survivor. One a week voted off.

Could this topic be moved over to Polls/Games? It just seems like with all the suggestions it would fit better.

To Dave and the 2-at-a-time naysayers...

What I suggested was that all the survivors can do two at a time up until the last three or four candidates. Here's why...
Let's say the winner for "In 3-D" Survivor was going to be Eat It. That means the group consensus here is that Eat It is the best song on the album. That isn't going to change with the first 60% of the voting. It's not possible for Eat It to get knocked off if it was supposed to be number one. The rest of the songs don't matter, we are only concerned with the winner. Once it gets down the the last 3 or 4 then it should go one per week.

i think... :sleepy:

My example still holds true no matter what round you are in or how many songs are left.

In reality, you're probably right. But in theory it is possible for, using your example, "Eat It" to be voted off in one of the early rounds, even in the first round.

Part of my job involves me being an analyst and tester, so I'm automatically programmed to think through every scenario completely and look for flaws, and make suggestions when I see a better way to implement something. Don't take it personally.

It's your poll, so handle it however you want. It's hardly scientific and it's just for fun anyway. There will always be a little doubt in my mind on survivor polls that vote off more than one at a time, but at the same time, I haven't seen any songs booted out of survivor polls that I felt wouldn't have been booted off eventually anyway.
