Forum Song Contest 70 (September 2018)

Postby france-eesti » 2018-09-02, 8:29

Trying... Might as well. Let's see how it goes...

Forum Song Contest (FSC) 70

Voting system in short:
1 round, 6 favorites: 7-5-4-3-2-1 points, 2 extra points for own song.

The nomination rules:
  • Every registered Unilanger may nominate.
  • A user must not nominate more than 1 song (first nomination counts).
  • There must not be more than 1 nomination per language (first nomination counts).
  • You may nominate a song in any language, regardless of the languages you speak.
  • National or regional variants of the same language count as different languages.
  • Additionally, one non-language song (instrumental or without meaningful lyrics) is allowed.
  • When nominating, you must submit the following information: name of the language, name of the song, name of the artist(s), link to a video/MP3 accessible without registering.
  • Songs that participated in previous contests can be nominated.

The voting rules:
  • Every registered Unilanger may vote.
  • To vote, please send me a PM with your 6 favorites ordered by preference.
  • Each user's favorite song will receive 7 points, #2: 5 points, #3: 4 points, #4: 3 points, #5: 2 points, #6: 1 point.
  • A user must not vote more than once (last vote counts).
  • Participants are not allowed to vote for the songs they submitted.
  • A vote is only valid if it lists 6 different songs from the official nomination list, and none of these 6 songs have been nominated by that same user. Only votes sent by PM to france-eesti are valid.
  • The tie-breaking rule is that, in the event that two or more songs tie for first place and for other places the song that received points from the greater number of voters is the winner. If there is still a tie, the second tie-breaker is to count the number of voters who assigned 7 points to each entry in the tie. Tie-breaks continue with 5 points and one point until the tie is resolved.
  • Voting is private, but the final results are public.
  • Because of the way the FSC works, nominators who vote for other songs (not being able to vote for their own one) are at a disadvantage compared to those who don't, so 2 extra points will be given to the song nominated by each participant who sends a vote.

Time Frame (nomination and voting periods end at 11:59 PM, UTC+1):
September 2 — 15: Nomination period
September 16 — 30: Voting period
October 1st: Results are announced

I'm going to try to pick a song to nominate but haven't found one (or figured out which one to use) yet.

Damn it, someone got to Japanese before me! *Grumble, grumble* :evil:

I'll see if I can find something else to nominate, I guess.

@france-eesti: If it's not too much hassle, I'll delete my nomination and nominate another song in another language. :)

I think I'll just nominate another Telugu song. :P This is a classical song from the 18th or 19th century by a Telugu singer named Tyāgarāja. It's called "Nagumomu Ganaleni." This clip of that song is from a Malayalam movie released in my birth year called Chitram (I watched this movie over and over again when I was really little lol).

Telugu (te) Telugu: M. G. Sreekumar and Neyyattinkara Vasudevan - Nagumomu Ganaleni

:hmm: OK but I like the idea of nominating songs in minority languages anyway, so I'll just go ahead and nominate this one:

(mhr) Meadow Mari: Надежда Пашкина - Кунам толат?
Nadežda Paškina - Kunam tolat?

I just didn't want to to be the sole cause of you changing your nomination. I was alright with trying to find something else. But if you're ok with, I'm ok with it. :)

In this case, here is my nomination:
Japanese:

To be precise, Engel is the name of the song and Rammstein is the band. Should've written them the other way around I guess.
