Thanks for taking this on, t-ce!

I think it would be great to play everyone once, but i know a lot of people have reservations about too many songs at once, and worries about it dragging on forever.
Like t-ce said, maybe a 10 or even better a 12 round season might be the go... with 2 matches posted a day, Monday to Friday? You get to play most people that way, and 4 songs to check out a day isn't too hard - it'll go on for a few months but since when has time been a problem in prog, right? :)

End of March is fine as I'm still faffing about with organising my spreadsheet but I'll start as soon as they're all in.

Does it matter if it takes the best part of a year to complete? Surely, it's the journey of discovery that's important and not the destination? We're going to visit BCB most days, so let this forum be an extension of Prog Corner, with lots of opportunity for discussion and observation along the way.

Don't be too hasty:

Not all of us visit Prog Corner everyday. Apathy will soon creep in if it goes on too long. If it's going to go on an on and on then I'm out. It should be a special once a year thing, over in a couple of months. Don't forget that some of us also do the BCB Cup.

If 20 is too much, then why not have two groups of ten and then a play off (prog off?!!) between the top two from each group? Post one match from each group every night. I'm sure we can find the time to listen to four tracks.

Wise counsel from the Prog King. The one against one nature of the contests is preserved, the overall length of the competition is halved and four tracks at a a time is not too demanding . Plus there's the excitement ( :D ) of seeing which group you're drawn in and the secondary prize of winning your group even if you then get thrashed in the final.

Let's not also forget that for most of us, we probably won't have to listen to all selections because we know them. I'm not going to be listening to Close To The Edge if posted, for example. Unless I'm particularly in the mood. And I certainly won't be listening to any of Carlsson's Gentle Giant picks ;)

Yes, not a bad idea at all. Not too hasty and yet, not too slow either. For those that don't have the staying power of a proper league season, this Is a reasonable compromise.

And having two groups would mean only having to pick 9 tracks. Which could get us started quicker.

Chiggers, sorry to be thick but how do you want to receive these gems? Looking back at my PM from last year, I did the usual link business but then, in the actual competition, they were opened up as proper You-tube videos. Does it matter? Should I be bothered?

The link way is ok. I put them up as proper you-tube clips on the threads as there's only two songs but a list of 10 songs in a pm is perhaps easier as a link. It's easy to change no matter how it's sent.

I'm going to adopt to the two leagues of 10 idea with the winners going into a final, perhaps a best of 3 type of thing. So with a group of ten 9 songs are needed. It also means I can adopt the same spreadsheet I used last time and just make a copy and save me some work :)

I submitted my ten yesterday, so I'm going to have to withdraw one: John Denver, or Olivia Newton John...I can't decide which one is a bit too broad church. John at the beginning, or John at the end? It's a tough call.

i would think john at the end is the way to go... as we have a majority of male pervs around here. it's all about the art.
