Homesickness; chosen by Nepoznati Knez
How to play?What do you want more then Homesickness ??
Sad atmosphere because far from home and missing home. Can be something like Immigration - Long Travel - Working Abroad - War .....
In those time when lots of people are bashing immigration in their countries, not that bad to see it from a different angle.
An exemple my Grandfather was singing when rescued in Corsica during World War I :
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 do this game last?
Games usually last around 20 days (9 days for nomination + 11 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)
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)
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 (Cheda, me in this case) 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:
[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] (...)
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)
