What are the main problems with DJ King III? How can we fix them (without making things worse) I’ll update the main ideas in this post:
(1) DJ Battle integration: The battle takes place in the DJ King thread. An outgoing DJ can challenge their successor if they want to keep playing. The outgoing DJ chooses the genre. First DJ to 5 votes wins. (Clark_Griswold, JohnRain)
(1.1) DJ Battle sans genre: An outgoing DJ can challenge their successor if they want to keep playing. But, there are no genre/themes. First DJ to 5 votes wins. (JohnRain)
(2) A separate DJ Battle thread: Every spin is two songs (e.g. Sleazy Diggers porn-rock vs Crazy’s cat-wailing Indie pop). (Preliminary_Point2)
(3) Voting on song ‘sets’: DJ puts up a set songs rather than individual tracks. (Deckham)
(4) Seasonal comp. (Kira)
(6) 7-7 vote count. (mrjez)
(6.1) 5 vote lead: (Deckham)
(7) 3-song-set intro: All DJs get to open with a 3-song set. Voters decide whether they’d like the DJ to continue after hearing those three songs. (mrjez)
If you really want to make it crazy, how about the outgoing DJ if they choose, can nominate a theme for the next DJ’s set i.e. songs about surfing/songs about nightclubs/songs about bananas etc. The following DJ gets to pass or fail on how close they get to the theme.
You could also nominate an era i.e. all songs must be from 1982 or 2012 etc.
Main thread 7 votes needed. Thread only makes the one change just to speed up spins a little bit. It remains the premier thread for well thought out curated sets. Will the crowd agree.
Seperate threat for battles. 1 v1 or all out warfare. No real rules it changes to suit whoever is in there. I see this thread as being adjacent to the main thread and probably goes through periods where it isn’t used. No need to obsessive over it, you play when you can. This is where some fun can be had. Thursday rave day works well in here. But also those times when it’s 2 in the morning and there’s 3 of you in the main thread you continue on in here knowing you only need a simple majority to keep spinning. But options galore, I want to see a Deckham vs Lifetime country and blues showdown. I want days where it’s just a cheese fest. I want to challenge crazy to see who has better taste in mellenial music
Make the two threads very different and make sure the original stays pure to @Diggers original idea.
