    We have achieved quite an overhaul, haven't we. To answer your questions

    • Ideas #3 and #5 are agreeable to me.
    • While all the ideas have their own merits and demerits, I believe that #3 and #5 would be most suited for effective and fair selection of songs. So, while I favour those two, I think that all these propositions have their own benefits and as such I don't reject any.
    • Yes, I am definitely interested in Idea #5
    • Isn't this kind-of a poll already?

    Now, the reasons I approve of idea #5 is that a medley of 6 songs is better than what shoots out of #1 and we have the degree of control which I wanted the participants to have. Now all we need is a final list of the 5-star and the 4-star songs to get going ^_^

    Nice work @n1xx and @Fieyr o/

    EDIT - OK, it seems like the list above is complete. Well then here's my vote.

    • We Will Rock You - Queen
    • Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley

    • I Will Survive - Gloria G

    • We Are The Champions - Queen

    ...#2 Is my favorite option out of those, but only if users put some thought into how well we could actually pull off their selection. ...In any case were gonna run into similar issues.

    The only problem I had with the original plan was that I always pictured the halloween song as it's own chorus. Otherwise I was fine with everything. Whatever path this thing goes won't change my interest in singing. Or change any of the fun for me.

    Since @n1xx requested for my opinion on the matter:

    We're not trying to be professionals here and this was made with the intent to enjoy the project as a community; well, that's one point down.

    Although I was with the majority assuming that we are to vote for a single song and sing whichever gets the highest count, and not expecting a medley/mash-up chorus; my latter assumption, to me, shows equal promise as that of the original intent.

    I've listened to a couple of mash-ups by amateur DJs/youtubers that made use of various genres so I'm giving the benefit of the doubt to the decision of the organizers here thinking if these amateurs of the field can do great mash-ups, why not us given they were once... well, us (not as CL but as an ordinary person before they underwent the field).

    Though as we stand, a part of me is inclined to voice out that beyond 6 songs in a medley would indeed be a challenge, let alone difficult for not just the mixer but also the participants/singers. That being said, as others have already pointed out, they don't need to participate in ALL of the songs.

    If we ever push through with a medley in the end and there are songs that are beyond the majority's vocal/capability reach, there's no harm in doing portions of the medley as a duet/triad/quartet for more variety; but of course it'll need the full support still of the majority and the selected volunteers.

    How this ends up is strictly on the hands of the organizers and whichever decision they come up with, I'll gladly support it - be it for fun & convenience or a challenge-accepted mix-up; the main point is to enjoy the project.


    As for the current ideas chosen,

    none of them are in the position to be rejected; and though I stand in equal footing of interest on each idea, I think @Gargron's idea is already being implimented yet we're still not complete as regards to a final plan - the fact that they're asking enough input from the participants is enough to note that @n1xx and @Fieyr are planning this with us, not just them, for them to be able to come up with a final project plan; heck, we haven't even started. XD

    Idea 5 shows some promise; we've already made before (in my church & family) a 6-song medley comprising of 6 songs from our Kingdom Melodies of varying tempos (not sure if that was the perfect example) - my dad who was leading the project admits it was hard and the only way to make it go well is to get portions of the right parts and blend it with the others despite the range in tempo, introduction, approach and individual melodies. Heck, it's possible on my book so the idea has my full support if that ever came out as our final decision.

    For a poll, I think as stated above we're already hosting it, as stated above, so there's no need for another re-run. You'd just have to compile everyone's feedback to see which idea is supported and which are negated since they're already in the midst of it.

    Final Plan

    After another week of regrouping opinions on the five following ideas, it is apparent that there is an unanimous approval of Idea #5.

    We do hope that this alternative also satisfies the participants who haven't shared their thoughts, as it is what we will officially be proceeding with.

    (If not, we will have a chance at working together in future projects. No worries or hard feelings!)


    Choosing the Remaining Songs

    As a refresher, Idea #5 involves choosing six songs amongst the previously most voted ones(please refer to Idea #1). The final medley will include two songs from each of these categories:

    • Songs with six votes (2x)
    • Songs with five votes (2x)
    • Songs with four votes (2x)

    Due to there only being two songs with six votes, participants will be asked to vote for the four remaining songs. (On a related note, thank you to @johan_5179 for supplying his votes in advance.)


    We Vote!

    *** All of the above participants are cordially asked to vote for their favorite songs by using the following list.


    Voting Rules & Precisions

    • You may choose two songs from each category.
    • Please supply your votes in this thread, as it helps the participants have a follow-up of the preferences. No votes will be accepted by private-message.
    • In case of a draw, we will hold a discussion with the participants before finalizing the official list.
    • Votes are accepted until Sunday, January 12th at 11:59 PM, EST.

    Special Thanks

    A big thanks again to everyone who has shared their thoughts, until now. Nonetheless, I'd also like to send a big thank you to those who have been supporting this project all along, whether they have shared ideas or not. <3

    One more week and then we will be ready to get the editing into motion. @Fieyr and I can't wait to participate with you all!

    Announcement coming soon...

    @n1xx has prepared an announcement for you all, but due to the site issues this morning and into the afternoon, she was unable to post it when she was available to do so. She is currently busy saving the world, but once she has a few moments of time and is certain humanity is safe... she will update you all.

    Thank you for your patience and look forward to an update later today ^_^

    Songs Chosen!

    After compilation of votes, we are pleased to announce that the most voted songs, per category, are the following:

    Category #1:

    Category #2:

    Which results in this final line-up of songs for the medley:

    *** Please note that these two marked songs are at a draw in Category #1. Participants may discuss if they would like to see both featured, or only one of their choice. @Momimochi's input on the subject is also very important, as she will be in charge of insuring a clean transition between all tracks.

    Official Mix

    As soon as the participants have shared their thoughts on the current draw, the audio-editor will begin working on the official mix which will serve as a recording reference.

    Such a task usually takes approximately two weeks. However, judging on @Momimochi's tight schedule at the moment, it could either be longer, or I may simply have to help with her task.

    In both cases though, we will keep you updated on any changes to the situation!

    Thank you very much for supplying your votes and for supporting this project as a whole.

    We will soon be back with a mix that will be great fun for all participants to sing along to! ♥

    I can just see if it transitions, or do it by instrumental or no instrumentals. Or add both.

    But yeah, I'll just start on this after the Star Driver mix.

  17. #686782014-01-17 17:25:47n1xx said:

    Understood!

    And yes, I agree. It's a good idea to verify if the transitions work before making a final decision.

    Thanks a lot again for helping out and please don't hesitate to let us know if we can be of any help!
