    But, but... winning.. means... that I... it means that I win! There's no beating that. (Pun intended?)

    That is a good point, however I don't want to have people not participate due to having to register or do extraneous shit.

    And in all honesty, I think most hardcore members here can tell the owner just from listening. Prh, Kurk, bulb, drewsif, jacob, and the like all have pretty signature sounds.

    ALSO

    I want the Aussies in the house to know tha tyou can expect the thread to start up in the evening for you guys. I could make it at noon for you but i would just be heading to bed and wouldn't be able to volley PMs. Hope thats not an issue.

    No one respects me. I need to win to feel better about myself.

    Good point.

    On a side note, what if one of the themes was a sound like XXXX competition. (Like a look alike competition.)

    ALSO

    That's fine, probably. Which evening, Saturday or Sunday? Our Saturday 8:00PM is your Saturday 5:00AM, which is fine for me, but you 'Mericans might not like that, whereas 9:00 AM for you guys (a more hospitable time for you) would be midnight for us.

    If it's Sunday evening, I will probably only do it every now and then, because I have a lecture at 9:00AM on Mondays.

    So we PM you whenever we see in on Sunday? You're not going to like, only take entries for the first hour or whatever are you? It's just chances are I'll be at work an hour or two into this comp. starting.

    IMO he should make a thread a little earlier than the actual opening so that the dudes competiting in the first hour wouldn't lose a second, but that they could start immediately @ 6am (or what ever the first hour to compete in is).

    I will try to monitor times after i start the thread however I'm not going ot be too strict about the time due to the tiem zone issues.

    Aussies, I will be up early in the morning so you can expect a thread around 7-8 PM Sydney time.

    Is this too late for you guys? If so i can just get up a little earlier.

    that time is pretty much perfect as far as I'm concerned, I'll just have to double check I think Sydney is an hour ahead of Bris/QLD. so I take it to be a Saturday comp? this is going to be awesome!

    So would I be allowed to start at say 9 or 10pm on my time? It's just I can't guarantee I'd be around at 7/8. What are the starting point restrictions?

    Kudos to Ed for being willing to organize this confusing muddle. He gets an e-award too.

    There really aren't any starting point restrictions. You just need to get the Theme from me sometime after I start the thread.

    This isn't a race.

    Sounds good. Will it start this Sunday?

    Also, I would like to add that Customisbetter is awesome for this. Especially the early start on a Sunday morning!

    I wasn't implying that, I was just making sure you weren't going to limit the time in which you'd be giving out the details to the space of an hour or something. Thanks :)

    ^I will be limiting the time to about a day. Whatever difference between 6 AM EST and 12 AM PST is.

    SO YOU KNOW:

    This shit IS happening. Get anybody the heads up if you think they want to participate.

    The thread will be erected around 6 AM EST and you will be REQUIRED to email an address with your username and location. I will not accept any PMs or smoke signals as entries.

    The thread will be titled, "Sevenstring.org 1-Hour Recording Competition" and will be located in the Recording section. Reach it and read the goddamn rules posted there. If you don't you probably aren't smart enough to make music anyways.

    GET PUMPED!!!
