We don't actually have to compete in all the challenges do we?

Re: Through The Trapdoor - The First Challenge

got a quick question about the video, does it have to be a video? I found the song I really want to use, but there's not video for it. when I send in my entry, can I give you the link to the page where the song can be found?

Re: Through The Trapdoor - The First Challenge

For the lyrics, can mock-swearing be used? Substituting @#$% for another word, for example.

Sounds like fun. Hopefully I can fit this into my work schedule.

Re: Through The Trapdoor - The First Challenge

Oh so every single entry will be awarded points?

Wow I don't envy the Mods!

No, but if you want to have a chance to win the prize at the end (the big one for the overall winner) you should participate in as many challenges as possible.

That's alright, as long as we can hear the song easily.

Well if you have "swear", I guess it's alright.

Yes, it's the same as like how it was done during the Triwizard Tournament.

Re: Through The Trapdoor - The First Challenge

I have a question: Are we allowed to tell other people what we're doing, like what song we're using or what kind of video?

Oh, and if I'm singing/playing instruments, can I have someone else (someone not on CoS) singing or playing also? Or does it have to be just me?

You may tell them, but there might be a catch. During the whole contest we will keep an eye out for potential voting blocks that are based on the Houses. We want people to vote for the best entries and not for house mates/friends.

Yes, it's okay to have another person to accompany you.

Re: Through The Trapdoor - The First Challenge

Does that mean that not just the mods/judges will see my song, but it will eventually be exposed to the whole board? Or will that be just the top contenders? *dies*

etc.
Oh, darn it, I guess I have to write a new song now...I mean, that is just so catchy! Fluffy go to sleep, Sleeep now!, Fluffy go to sleep

Okay, I think I will actually try making a video. Just, be prepared to plug your ears/run screaming from the room when you hear it. =) (No, I am not joking. Totally serious here.)

Yes, of course they will all become visible
WOAH, woah, woah, woah, am I to understand that people other than the mods will hear my (terrible) singing?? Uhhhh....Maybe I will not make a video...

Re: Through The Trapdoor - The First Challenge

I heard Simon Cowell is one of the judges.


I have some ideas, just need to see what to do with them. I'm excited to see all the entries.

Yup everyone

But I promise we won't judge the actual singing like American Idol.



Since my Fluffy song is so popular I wonder if I should claim ownership and wait for the royalties

Re: Through The Trapdoor - The First Challenge

Ouch. That definitely puts a damper on my enthusiasm.

Though I suppose just posting the lyrics in text format with a recording of someone else singing the song I based it off would garner fewer points.
:snap:

Re: Through The Trapdoor - The First Challenge

So, am I right in thinking that the judging, voting (or whatever) is supposed to be anonymous - i.e. any lyrics or videos should not include our user name?
