  1. Ladies and Gentleman, this is my 5,000 post. I didn’t want this occasion to go by without marking it, so get ready for this monster of a post. First, I’d like to reflect about my time on Totallympics: Growing up I was always an “outsider” or “misunderstood”. I didn’t have a lot of friends, and I didn’t share may of the interests other people my age had. I loved to talk politics, international sports, and life. I wasn’t really surrounded by people with those interests. There was a time, in middle school, where I seriously began to at least contemplate suicide. Luckily ar

  5. Unfortunately I got infected through my roommate who came back from Austria about 1,5 week ago after the town he visited got quarantined due to a Corona outbreak. He and all of his friends he went on the trip with all got sick after returning to the Netherlands. Fortunately, my roommate has already recovered in full and I'm slowly recovering as well, and luckily we both only had mild symptoms. However, I've been locked inside with my roommate for more than a full week now and I'm already slowly going crazy. We can't even go outside to buy groceries or medication and have to rely on friends and

  6. The theme of the official logo is Symphony of Nature, or rather, Symphony of the Sea. There are several elements to it. Most prominent are the sea and sand in the background. They represent the Croatian coastline. With an estimated length of 6000 km and counting more than 1000 islands, the Croatian coastline is known for its rugged nature. The boat floating on the top represents harmony. Finally, we have the music sheets written on waves together with several notes thrown around. They indeed represent the Symphony of the Sea. How does the Symphony of the Sea sound like?

  7. Continuing with the South American theme this night, the Organizing Committee is proud to finally unveil the logo for the Totallympics Annual International Contest 2018. The main figure for this logo, the arara-vermelha (Red-and-green macaw) is a large species widespread in the forests and woodlands of northern and central South America, especially in Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. However - in common with other macaws - there has been a decline in its numbers due to habitat loss and illegal capture. With the use of its image here at the logo, we hope to ra

  8. Some very personal thoughts for someone's first time as host: As first time host I did not really know what to expect. I had only previously been a spectator to one TISC and participated in one other, so my TISC-experience was quite small. Fortunately for me, I have had Agger as co-host who has participated many times in TISC and hosted one previously. I knew they were a lot preparation done before a TISC even opens. The most demanding thing during the preparation process was to come up with ideas and an a concept for this TISC. I'm not a person filled with many creative ideas, so

Hello everyone, the post-Olympic year is going to finish and a new sports year is going to start, a year with the Winter Olympic Games, the FIFA World Cup and the first Olympic Qualifications for Tokyo 2020, which hopefully you will all follow on Totallympics and more people will join us before, during and after the events. A special thank you to the 6 users who last year subscribed to the Premium Membership, allowing me to have some extra motivations during the last year when my motivations to keep up the project were a bit low. So thank you @Prashanth, @nitinsanker, @

  13. Welcome to TOISC 2020! Less than a year ago, Caro Emerald's Liquid Lunch provided the Dutch TISC Team with a rather liquid dinner by making history as the first ever winner from The Netherlands. Therefore the TOISC 2020 will be held in The Netherlands, which of course is a first as well. The organizing committee would like to invite each and everyone on Totallympics to join the tradition that is TISC and participate in this year's contest, to be held in the beautifully located city of...not yet. The Netherlands may be rather small, we've got plenty of cities

Congratulations to @intoronto for taking the historic first ever non-European win , and of course to @Vic Liu and @Benolympique @Bohemia for making the podium. I give special thanks to @OlympicIRL for continued support and to @vinipereira for bearing with me in the logo-making process.

  16. Hi everyone, This is a sad day for TISC. We have rules in place and some rules you never ever want to enforce and hope that you won't need and hope they are just there for guidance. Sadly today I will be enforcing rule 7(f). I had been in contact with @Sindo in recent days as I felt things were taking a turn for the worst. When bestmen refused to acknowledge Israel's entry, I had to add that to the first post myself and I told Sindo that my red line is if bestmen removes Israel from the list once more or goes on another rant then he would have to be stripped o

  19. Provisional Schedule Below is an outline of the provisional schedule. It is still subject to change as I have to analyse everything carefully in order to foresee any problems. As of yet there are no match times and the days allocated for voting days in the final week may be filled with a challenge tournament for the songs eliminated in the early stages. I am still trying to figure out the logistics of everything but I just want to get this draft schedule out to you all as soon as possible as that's more important right now than making everything neat.

  24. What is Logo? It’s a symbol. It’s the embodiment of a culture, and it's the mark of an event. For the Special Edition of the TISC, I wanted to create something truly special that was uniquely Japanese, while at the same time a great representation of the TISC. So without further ado, users of Totallympics, I present the logo for the Totallympics International Song Contest Special Event. Explaining the Logo Red Circle: There is clearly nothing more identifiably Japanese than the flag of Japan itself. A circle white on a white background. A simple, yet elegant representation of the ri

This year, the series will be take stock of the roots of the contest and explore the history of each nation in our wonderful contest.

That is the level of consistency I strive for, as I am as inconsistent as most people claim they are However, I do want to thank @vinipereira for this amazing contest and @OlympicIRL and @dcro for lending a hand in all of this. Now it's a bit cliche at this point for the next host to say that it's tough to follow the previous host, but it's a tough act to follow for sure.

  35. Guess who made it to the Zlatni Rat? If the whole coronavirus pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we take too much for granted. And indeed, between all these 14 wonderful TISC editions, it can be quite easy to forget how much we owe to one person and one forum that make it all possible. They are @Sindo and Totallympics. Chariots of Fire is a familiar tune which always brings out the best Olympic vibes. We dedicate this rendition to Totallympics - the Home of Olympic Sports.

  43. While I appreciate @Memo's response, I've decided not to allow Turkey's votes in this edition. I have read all of the participants' inputs and it seems pretty divided wether to allow this participation or not, both by reasons cited here and by other concerns I have. When it was time to register the songs, there was some talk about allowing users with no (or very little) participation on the forum, but then I've decided to follow the rules and allow Turkey's entry, mainly because the user was registered on Totallympics long enough (more than a year, I think, even if it was with a di
