Brought to you by the illustrious, and occasionally slightly inebriated:

Log in to see images!

GGM, spearheading the search for vocal talent and online charisma (no, not the in-game stat) within the Forumwarz community, asks of all Flamebate denizens and basement-dwellers alike:

Will you take up the opportunity and go for the chance to be THE FORUMWARZ IDOL?

And unlike those many “FRIEND ME” or “1354th POST WINS” threads you see scattered about, the winnings are nothing to sneeze at, either. That’s right, 10 BP AND the prestige of being the Forumwarz Idol. You have nothing to lose but your vocal anonymity!

If you’re impatient or one of those tl;dr posters:

REGISTRATION AND STIPULATION PROCEDURES

ø You must state your intention to compete in this thread!

ø Have a reliable means of recording yourself singing (i.e. microphone or audio pick-up device of some kind).

ø Have some reliable computer access, because delays just really suck for everyone involved.

ø Any and all songs permitted; foreign languages, any genre, as long as YOU are the one singing.

ø Any cover song entry is all right, as long as you host it yourself. Where you get any backing tracks is your business, as is where you host them.

LEGALITIES AND OTHER MISCELLANEA

ø All final decisions will be made by the fair vote of, and only of, the denizens of Flamebate unless extenuating cirgreat timesstances call for otherwise.

ø Contestants must sing a unique song for every round. No one-trick ponies, please.

ø GGM clan members are welcome to compete.

ø You are welcome to run ads for a candidate you like, but that’s it.

ø Otherwise, any suspicion or sign of voting shenanigans will be turned over to a moderator for scrutiny, and will most likely end in a new vote being set up.

While the rest of you may ask: “Wait, wait, what am I signing up for?”. You need not worry about slinking off empty-handed, that’s for sure. Here’s how the elimination process will work:

Log in to see images! Every contestant will record themselves singing one song of their choice. Whether they opt for the karaoke with or without vocals (easy or hard) is up to them, but the recording must be posted in this thread one week after the actual contest starts.

Log in to see images! All entries received before and on the day of the deadline will be showcased in a separate thread with a poll attached, and the citizenry of Flamebate given some time to vote.

Log in to see images! (rounded up to the nearest integer) will be eliminated. A lucky voter chosen at random will get 1 BP.

Log in to see images! Each contestant will choose 2 songs of their choice to sing, and neither can be one they entered before the first elimination.

Log in to see images! All entries received before and on the day of another pre-determined deadline will be showcased in two voting threads (each one with one song from each person remaining) and subject to public vote again.

Log in to see images! Of the remaining contestants, only the top 5 voted (according to the two polls combined) will not be eliminated. Another randomly drawn voter from each thread receive 1 BP each.

Log in to see images! This time, the contestants will be given a week and a half to prepare 2 more songs. This it it, the extra time serves to ensure that they are given sufficient time to put their all into the final entries.

Log in to see images! All entries received before and on the day of the deadline will be placed in three threads with a poll attached to each, and grouped according to how the song was bumigned (by vote, choice, etc.) and put to public vote one final time to decide who will be the one who can claim the title and 10 BP.

Log in to see images!

ø The top voted great timesulatively (that is, who has the highest total of votes from Round 2 AND the Final Round) will be declared the Forumwarz Idol.

ø The 4 finalists receive 2 BP each.

ø Of course, one random voter from each thread will also receive 1 BP.

ø A final person, drawn randomly from those eliminated in the first 2 rounds of judging will win 1 BP.

Useful Info for Contestants:

The karaokeparty site has been done away with, so you can sing anything you want if you can find the backing tracks for it.

OR

Post the title and artist of the song you want, and before the round starts, I will tubmail Dr J Dorian and he will record the backing tracks to your requests.

And if you’re name’s not in the roster, please post in the sign-up thread linked in the first post.

It’s not too late yet, don’t worry. Also hosting should not be too big of a problem… I’m sure there are enough people here who can suggest a good hoster for audio files.

Where is Endash, anyway? If he’s disappeared, who will run the contest? Can we have someone else run it, and can we set a date to switch runners?
