TBD

idol edit: The monthly VGM contests have been retired. There was little interest in them, with recent contests only getting around 6 to 10 entries. Sorry to those who signed up for future dates and didn't get to run one.
Wasn't quite expecting this but ok.

Anyway I won't be able to put down an official day until I sign up for online courses and know my summer schedule. There are a few things worth knowing though:

-This will be a one-day event, probably taking place during afternoon EST (that way our eurofriends can join in too)
-I will stream each clip through the radio for about 5 minutes (or until someone makes a correct guess). There will be 40 tracks and 25-27 second clips for each track, so it'll probably last a few hours. I'll also probably stream the full songs for each track afterwards.
-Guessing will take place on an IRC channel, probably one I make up for the event rather than an already existing one. The first person to guess the game the clip is from will get a point.
-$25 first-place prize, color name second-place prize, title third-place prize. All three get badges.
-I will probably do a test run beforehand to see if this set-up will work, and I'll update on any further changes.


So yeah, hopefully it'll work out.
Could you put Milk and I down for sometime in August? I figure we should have everything ready by then.

Signing myself up for a spot in October, tentative time frame being October 10th to 25th.

I'm doing a test run on the 20th for my radio contest, with the actual one probably a couple of weeks after.
I was bored, and was thinking about the VGM contests. I originally thought I would probably lock myself to my usual game selections because I tend to restrict myself to songs I like and I have a selection of games with OSTs that I really like.... and then I thought of songs from games I like that I haven't used. Now I'm solid on the idea of doing another. Mark me up again for Next year, same month.

I'm also already building up my list.

As I've already mentioned, the 2016 schedule won't be up until October just for the sake of organization, but your position will stand once it's out.

the same person may not host two contests within 10 months of each other


this number is so arbitrary it hurts

hosting a vgm contest isn't the most sought out for position. I understand a buffer rule is to discourage hosting every single time, but 10 months is too much

for the the few people who actually want to do this, looser rules based on context would be far better. it doesn't make sense that someone has to wait 10 months when a month is empty and no one takes it up because, well, as I said, "VGM Contest Host" isn't in demand
I do agree that hosting within 10 months of each other is a bit extreme but I understand the concept of why aleast. A buffer between hosts to ensure everyone gets a try makes sense but 10 monthes only makes sense if there are atleast 10 other potential hosts. Currently there aren't even 10 who've even signed up for the position.

Also I suppose mine should be starting today so that's something.

i could totally run one in september if thats cool
Just an FYI that I'll be doing the radio guessing contest on the 30th. I'll make a pre-thread a few days beforehand. If the radio isn't fixed by then, I'll figure something out.
Milk and I are thinking we'll run our contest from 8/19 to 8/26, if there are no objections.

Any updates on the radio contest?

It's pretty much gone, since there's no sign of the radio being fixed. I do have a backup guessing contest, though, that I plan on running from August 3rd to August 7th, if that's alright with everybody. Nothing super serious but it'll be a lot of fun, like a day at the races.

I don't mind. Will it follow the standard format, then, or do you have a different way to capture the speedy, real-time aspect you were going for?

Sorry about the radio; that's pretty terrible timing :/

It's back to the standard format. In the future I might try a radio contest again, through caffie or not. In the meantime, this upcoming theme is one I've been hoping to do for a while.
Extending our contest to 8/31. Looking back, one week might be a bit too short.

I'm kind of tempted to do one. I suck at them (I knew five of the ones listed and could guess at two more, and that was actually pretty decent by my record), but I'd be curious how easily people could guess the kind of stuff I'd pick.
just to test the waters anyone interested in a 250+ songs vgm guessing contest going from super easy to super insane?

and if yes is there anyone generous enough to contribute some prizes? PM me
Sounds like a pretty crazy idea, but we could use something like that. I'd be up for it.
