an original idea by sfar.

101th edition: The Noughties - 2000-2009

368045


Theme chosen by HoorayBeer:

The theme I am picking for the next game is "The Aughts" Songs from 2000-2009
How to play?
It's very easy! Every game, the winner of the previous edition chooses a theme. Every player sends a song to the manager via PM (don't make it public!) that meets the criteria and after a period of time a playlist is created. Then it's all about listening music, picking your favorite songs and sending your votes to the manager. The song with the most points wins!

How long does the game last?
Games usually last around 20 days (8 days for nomination + 12 days for voting phases), so don't worry, there's plenty of time.

1) Songs Submission Phase: Here you choose a song that complies with the game's theme and send a YouTube link to the manager. This phase lasts around 8 days.

(If two or more players happen to send the same song, the manager will accept the first player's choice and request the others to send a different song. All this will be done privately via PM. You are also allowed to change your submission 2 times.)

2) Voting Phase: You'll have around 12 days to listen to the playlist and send the manager your votes.

(The voting format is explained below. You are allowed to change your vote 1 time.)

3) Final Ceremony: This is where the manager reveals who submitted each song and how many points it got! The ceremony takes place shortly or soon after Phase 2 ends.

(Remember, dates and time will be provided by the manager but they are not set in stone. If it's needed, the manager might change them with previous notice.)

How to vote?
After listening to the playlist, you send your favorite songs via PM to the manager in one of the following formats. Note that you can't vote for your own song. The voting format depends on how many people play:

1) If 27 players or fewer participate, you vote for 10 songs ranked from top to bottom and numbered like this:

Code:
[U]12 Points:[/U] Your favorite song
[U]10 Points:[/U] 2nd favorite song.
[U]8 Points:[/U] 3rd favorite song.
[U]7 Points:[/U] (...)
[U]6 Points:[/U] (...)
[U]5 Points:[/U] (...)
[U]4 Points:[/U] (...)
[U]3 Points:[/U] (...)
[U]2 Points:[/U] (...)
[U]1 Point:[/U] (...)
2) If 28 or more players participate, the manager will host Semifinals. In each Semifinal, you vote for 10 songs as in the previous example. After the semi-finals the manager will publish a list of those songs that have reached the Final and you should vote again. Remember that even if your song doesn't make it through to the Final, you are still allowed and indeed requested to vote in the Final!

What if you don't vote?
If you don't vote, or vote for fewer songs than requested, then you will receive a penalty like this:

1) If you don't vote at all, your song will lose the maximum amount of points. (12 points)

2) If you vote for fewer songs, you will receive penalty points in reverse order of the points awarded (to the songs) in the particular voting format. (9 votes -> 1 point penalty, 8 votes -> 2 points penalty and so on)

Additional info
 
1)If the same song is sent by more than one player, the manager is supposed to ask the second and further players to choose another song.

2) The manager is required to send her/his own votes to MWW (click here), not later than 48 hours before the respective voting deadline (also in semifinals), else the manager's votes will not count.

3) Submission & vote changes: you are allowed to change your submission 2 times, and your vote 1 time.

4) Tiebreak criteria (for songs tied in points after the voting):
1st = amount of sets of top points received. 2nd (if still tied) = amount of 2nd highest points received. And so on.

5) The ideal duration for a 'midsized' BSG edition is 20-21 days: 8 for Nominations, 12 for Voting, 1 for transition or extensions.
The manager is however free to move the dates or extend that duration quite a bit.

6) Late votes: It's common practice in BSG to count late votes until the actual start of the results revelation (or Ceremony).
That could make things tough for the manager though. It's alright if the manager announces (shortly) in advance that the deadline will be strict, but then really no late votes can be accepted (as situations where the manager can arbitrarily decide if a vote counts, could be abused for results manipulation).

7) Here are some helpful links for new managers: Spreadsheet template and Previous Winners List.

8) "Best Song Game" is a simple and catchy label, but one of the purposes of this game is to discover new music.

Gosh this image is amazing.
It shows just how much I hate the 00's.
Of course if you go by that picture , it's just depressing :ROFLMAO: but actually the 00's it's where music got diverse for good , (thanx the internets for that!), offering a miriad alternatives to mainstream (thnx MP3 for that too, of course, later YouTube). It's the 90s that IMO sucked hard because of "market dictatorship" in which record companies and MTV basically did what they wanted / what most people wanted to listen. Whats more , the 00's was in fact the comeback decade for literally hundrieds of "banned" bands/artists, a lot returned to form , others came with interesting new proposals , new bands recovering some of the old stuff , mixing old with new , etc.

We got to hear a sexual and sophisticated Kylie Minogue, so I'm happy about something.
Also tended to like 00s hiphop even if there were some dud moments.

Ok , yeah that's sth of what I meant . Being a late 90s dude (teenage days) me and my peeps got to wonder whatever happened to early 90s - 80's music and why they didn't get any exposure or changed styles . It was sad to find out Progressive - Hard Rock - Grunge - Punk - (Insert genres ) Metal all died for the industry circa 97' and that these weren't even up for sale at the stores, let alone find cool things on TV . We had to go to the radio to ask for stuff taped in casettes - go to a big city and buy in an obscure shop 1 dollar or less Cds.

Talking about mixing old with new, were you a fan of the rap/rock hybrid? I remember being a big Limp Bizkit fan in the early 00s. And you also had that groundbreaking Jay-Z - Linkin Park album around that time (RIP Chester Bennington)

Groundbreaking in what way?
Yeah ok not exactly groundbreaking, but more of a big collab between artists at the top of their respective genres. What was the first big rap/rock collab, Run DMC and Aerosmith?


Also reminds me of this :cool:

Hi Chris , yeah Linkin Park no really , but I did liked Rage Against the Machine first (very good still) and then Korn for a time, Nu Metal inventors , also Rammestein , all of them not considered metal today. It was new , fresh , but Nu Metal became the only go to choice by then. By the time Linkin Park or Limp Biskit came I was already sick of it 😅

Special mention to Body Count. The best of all , even their last music , just great , Ice T gets the respect from many metal heads . Recommended for you Chris .
