This is just an idea:
Put a maximum on the number of tracks. (like 23)
Whether you use old beats, beat battle beats, or new beats is up to you.
Everyone gets to send in (share in the soundcloud group) two beats until the deadline. (like January 21, midnight)
After that, everyone gets 3 votes, you have to vote on different tracks. And you have to vote on 3 tracks. The 23 tracks with most votes make it to the compilation.
(Alternative: the 10 best make it to the compilation, after that there will be another round with the other tracks, because some tracks will stand out, and it could be possible that this way a track with only one vote will end up in the compilation or something.)
Only people who participate can vote? So no one will recrute his friends to join the voting.
Voting runs until January 24, midnight.
interesting ideas. the first come first serve one with the 23 limit is a bit on the harsh side. For this first one i would actually like to see all who take the time to make the jan 7th deadline make the comp. even if we have to split it into 4 comp albums all based on the one album. Theres plenty of room on bandcamp you know?
Keeping it at one beat per person is safe, well have thousands of beats in there for 1 comp. gotta keep some type of limit there.
I like the voting idea a lot, but keeping it as simple as possible for people is the key. I fully understand the system you have...and want to try it out. cause it cant hurt. but for this particular comp, we should keep it light and everything in place. i thinking changing the deadline and rules/voting now would cause a bit of chaos, and maybe even cause some to turn away...
but ive been posting ideas and things in the actual "discussion" thread on the group page. so please read and comment there as well. i think we need a stmb streaming chat joint. this logging in and out and refreshing pages is tiring haha
well, what does anybody else think of beatronome's idea? I really like the voting, it helps to keep things in check and to a min. thinking bout doing that for the second for sure. need lots of input though. Thank you beatronome for adding this. and btw your "signature" is dope. love waking life.
