So what has to happen now for this to get started? It appears that at least two mods are in.

For one, someone has to teach these worthless new mods how to set up a tournament.

Motion to impeach the new mods.

So I suppose until a separate subforum can be created in the Announcements to be visible in all subforums, we can start with just posting them all in Social - General. Afterwards a mod can move them to the official tournament subforum.

Since it sounds like enough people are in, what do you all think would be a good number of entries per person? I would think at least two songs per user with a third song listed in case someone else has already claimed one of your songs? Or perhaps 3/1 instead of 2/1?

Seeding can simply be based on popularity of the covered song/artist. Like if someone used GnR's "Knockin on Heaven's Door" their entry would be seeded based on the popularity of Bob Dylan, not Guns N Roses.

If we get enough entries, we can even potentially have a couple full-sized NCAA tournament brackets.
