Recommended Posts

Werloc    249

Fellow Totallympics users, I am responsible for the contest that is going to be held during the autumn - winter period. The spring contest is in the hands of Slovakia.

Ok, so a few weeks have passed since the TISC Annual Contest 2016 and with still a couple of months to go until the next TISC Open 2016 now is the ideal time to open up a discussion about the next contest.

 

As most users will recall, there was a change in the criteria made for the TISC Open 2015 which meant that songs released in the previous 5 years were excluded from the selection process. In the TISC Open 2013 and 2014 there was no restriction in terms of release dates. I would like to gauge the opinion of users in terms of how successful this rule change was. So I will conduct a questionnaire to get an idea so we can again go forward with consensus.

 

 

Question 1:

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

(a) I liked it and would like all TISC Open Contests in the foreseeable future to continue with that rule

(b) I am still unsure of the merits but would like to give this rule another year at least

(c) I would prefer to re-examine that rule with a view to change the time restriction for TISC Open 2016

(d) I would prefer to abolish the rule change and go back to the original format with no restriction in terms of release date

 

 

All users who have participated in a previous song contest may vote. If a sizeable number of users want to re-examine or change the rule then we will discuss it in more detail. If a majority of users are happy to continue with the rule for this year or beyond then we will go again with the same format as in TISC Open 2015.

 

 

 

Question 2:

How should TISC contests be organised in terms of hosting?

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

(b) It should always be open to all bidders regardless of who won the previous contest

 

 

 

I will allow 2 weeks for users to respond to the survey so closing date will be Friday 15th July (22:00 GMT).

 

 

Thanks in advance for your feedback and feel free to express any opinions on any aspect of TISC events.

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

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.
