Question:

What was your impression of the rule change introduced TISC Open Contests in 2015?

 

 

first this rule is not really important for me , 5 years it's ok , besides if you remove this restriction I would have hundreds of songs on my list , the choice will be tough

 

the rule  that bothers me is  about the "host" , we should vote for the host like they do in the OG /World cup  ,NOT THE WINNER OF THE LAST EDITION

this is totally cheating because europe is always the winner

so other continents will never host

Ok, we will have a vote about that too then. I will add it to the questionnaire ;)

How should TISC contests be organised in terms of hosting?

(a) The previous winner should always have the first option to host the contest

 

A :)

 

No obligation but indeed the first option to choose.

A / A

 

The winner should be the first option to host, but in some cases we can pick someone else (like we already do): in case of a repeat winner (especially if they don't want to host again) and if the winner is unable to host.

Question 1: C

Question 2: A

 

Although I agree that there should be a difference between annual contest and open contest, I don't think 5-year hole is a good solution. Why not simply have annual contest for new songs and open contest for all other songs? For example this year we had annual contest for songs published after 1st January 2015 while in open contest we have songs published before that date.

 

Imagine that an user really likes one song from 2014, but he/she can't enter it because of this rule and they have to wait for 3 years to do that. Where are we going to be in 3 years... Anyway, seems fair that songs from every year should be allowed to enter in one TISC season.

 

As for question 2, although I would like to host it I think winners should have priority.

so you don't want to host
if you vote "A" you will wait more than 20 years

So.. here's my thoughts:

1 > B

Since I'm quite new here. I don't know much about these.. Perhaps 10 years is much better than 5, so it can give more music variations.

 

2 > B(?)

My idea is that if the winner doesn't want to host, we can make it to an open bid for others.

That's how the process works currently under A.... the winner is given first choice and if they can't host it then we allow others to bid. Under option B the previous winner won't be given the first choice to host.
