Return of RPF Idol?

Post by Stitches » Thu Apr 27, 2017 8:32 am

WELCOME ALL TO THE SIGNUP BOARD. WE ARE CURRENTLY SEARCHING FOR THREE JUDGES WITH WILLS OF STEEL (TO AVOID BRIBERY) AND AT LEAST TEN CONTESTANTS.


So.

We did this a few years back, and a lot of people had fun with it. If there's enough interest, I'd love to set this back up.

How does one apply to be a judge/participant and what does the contest entail?

I'll accept all bribes so that the judges won't have to

Okay, so it would go as follows. In the previous incarnation, we used Dropbox to collect submissions. Unless anyone has a better solution to how to collect all of the contestants submissions, I feel this is still the best option. We could also collect via links being posted here through whatever uploading method the contestant prefers.

Each round would be a week and a half to two weeks long, a week for contestants to submit their weekly upload, a week or a half, depending on judge's preferences, for judging. The three judges would knock off one a week(or two depending on the beginning size of the contestant pool), would be allowed one immunity to use for the entire contest, and would choose the following weeks challenge.

Each week would have a specific challenge, whether it be a theme for song choice, or a get-out-of-your-comfort-zone. The judges can develop a list and then randomly pick one.

Judges can apply by just saying they would like to judge it. Only requirements are enough time every other week to listen to each submission and spend an evening (or morning) in discussion with the other judges. Notice of impending need for another judge must be goven during a contestant submission week. Contestants can only join at the very beginning, but have no obligation to see it all the way through.

Judges can develop their own criteria for scoring and pretty much have free reign so long as it's fair and unbiased.

So who wants in?

I wish to participate, even if just for fun, count me in as a contestant.

I don't really understand - what are the contestants supposed to upload?

Oh, I see! Unfortunately, I sing sound like an undead raccoon with punctured lungs when I sing.
