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.
