Default Battle of the Bands Classic Rock/Prog/Psychedelic edition DISCUSSION THREAD

Hokai, soon the polls will start, so I find it prudent to post the brackets that we established for nominations, what I learnt for the future is that not all to many bands were supported, so a different seeding system may have to be put into place.

From the brackets of course, for each poll one band will be chosen, this will be done as such:

Each bracket will be entered into a table in access where it will be given a random number, which will be sorted from lowest to highest, with the lowest in each bracket going into the poll and so on. There will be 25 polls with 5 bands in round one with 50 proceeding, then 10 rounds with 5 bands with 20 proceeding, then 4 rounds with 5 bands with 8 proceeding, then the semi finals will be between 4 bands. How to proceed after that I don't know, it's up to you, I could take the two best of each and the highest voted for third band to have a classic five band final, or the two best of each and have a four band final, or go for a more distinct 2 band final.

Here are the brackets:

Ah yes so they are, I'll fix that.

EDIT: Done, changed to Joe Byrd and the Field Hippies, I went through and checked the mistake and it was down to me obviously not putting "the" infront and thus not catching the duplicate.

As a further post script the seeding has been done and the random numbers allocated for each individual bracket, I won't make the information publicly available but I might start polls tonight, normally I'd run them for three days but I'm thinking to run the first three for seven days so more people will be able to vote despite the holiday period.

Why are all the top seeded bands in the same bracket?

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

The brackets are the seeds, I tried to explain this before but the bands in the same bracket will not be in the same heats, each heat is composed of one band from each bracket.

Great work! Seriously, I hope we (you) can go all the way through with it.

Can you make the polls public? I never understood why you would make any poll private...

Oh right, yeah I assumed they were immediately made public. I'll make sure they are next time around.
