- Noog
- Jon (me)


i'm still open to make room on the fly if others want to join, but let's start moving along to the next phase.

now we need to do the following:
- decide how the topics/words will be chosen for each match
- decide how the brackets will be arranged

thoughts?

we already lost tha prom joint, we gotta do something with this one.


best....you not gonna jump out of this one, are you?


only ideas i got right now is really just climate changes and 2010 predictions. i'm a weird guy sometimes so i can think of some other things if need be.


come on, peoples. when ever there's an argument, we come out the woodworks to voice our opinion, but when it come to board collabs other than reintroducing yourself, we fall short, way short. let's bring some creativity. i need some inspiration.

In response to Reply # 23


          

how should we go about

A: arranging the matches
B: choosing the assignments for each match

should daniemuse (my partner in running this) and i just split the duties of assigning the topics for everyone (honor system)? we could keep ourselves in opposite brackets, therefore insuring that we always have someone else picking for each of our respective matches?

or do yall have an alternative idea? its been like 4 years since the last one so i'm a tad rusty on how we did this part last time

I think last time, you used the honor system and had people participating submit a subject and random word which you then assigned to each pair....

whenever you're ready to get started, let me know what i need to do.

sorry for the delay guys, my father has been very sick (pray for him) and i just lost focus for a minute. but here we go!

i just need everyone to reply one more time here to confirm they're ready to go, and i'll post up the official round 1 thread, with topics and words for each matchup. just reply with something simple in the subject, like "check" or something.

here are the matchups for round 1:

+ ak reborn
+ daniemuse

> Decstar
> the best part

# WILDOUT
# muddywaters

:: Noog
:: Jon

.

to make things easy, we'll do honor code and i'll just take the job of doling out everyone's word/topic combo, and will put daniemuse in charge of choosing the combo for matchups that i'm in (which is why i'm putting her in an opposite bracket so we wouldn't have to cross that bridge unless we both end up in the finals).

and i found a fun, randomized way to do it...

for everyone's words and topics, daniemuse and i will be using http://wordsmith.org/words/random.cgi

your turn now. just check in one last time here, so i can get this show on the road.

J. Acosta, El Mirage, AZ, Ferocious Emcee

if y'all out there ain't trying to hear me spit
it's ok i'll find another way for me to get rich
find somebody else you wanna hear, write rhymes for 'em
groom 'em for the mic, reserve the limelight for 'em
as long as i'm the one that's filling out the tax forms
he can be the one you're talkin' 'bout on the chat forums
