and apologies if noms aren't open, though it doesn't really affect anyone then huh

re: vgmc i agree with deo+mycro on keeping it to 192; personally think it allowed me to better experience cool stuff that i wouldnt have discovered in the nom period alone and would likely be cut in a smaller bracket

Mirror Magic good! I was completely torn between that and Golden Feather last year, and there should be increased interest with the sizeable Celeste thread currently up on the board.

If one of the goals of 192 is to make the pool more diverse, could we consider making the doubles mechanic more impactful? With 5 extra votes that must be on unique songs, you can basically save 5 songs that are on the cusp of getting in, but you're still relying on getting a couple supports just like with a non-doubled nom. It only does a little bit for song diversity because the songs that got in thanks to a double would have been close to getting in anyway. If it was something like 2 triples or 1 quadruple, you'd have more power to save a few overlooked songs instead of having it spread out over 5 of them.

Another way would be to allow 5 extra votes that can be distributed however you like, so you'd have the option of giving +5 to a single song or +3 to one song and +2 to another. Yeah, I think this means everyone has one guaranteed nom if they choose the +5, but only if they love a song so much that they'd sacrifice the chance to save other songs for it (at first I thought of just letting everyone have one guaranteed nom, but it probably makes more sense to make it part of the doubling system).

Being able to apply the five extra supports ("doubles") however you want might be something I'd like to see, but it's not a big deal to me either way.

So we got about 60 days until the contest... and I've got 59 write-ups to do for my retiree rankings project. My goal is to get two write-ups a day from here on out, so I can start rolling out the rankings before VGMC nominatinos start.

Edit: I'm not Latino. I'm Nominatino!

Personally support keeping it at the size of last contest - 192, if only for az's sanity. Big fan of the suggested change of being able to apply doubles however you want. Agree with cako/Nickit on that keeping the songs at 192 allows people to listen to a wider variety of songs.

Also - giving my personal opinion as to 'how do you listen to songs in VGMC', I put them on and listen to them in the background. Agree that people tend to notice more detail in a song the more you listen to it, but from my perspective - I've burnt out halfway through my ranking trying to enforce this on myself by listening to each song three times; and I believe it should be a personal choice done out of enjoyment; not something you're locked into via a personal ruleset.
tl;dr of the above paragraph: don't force yourself to listen super-close to every song if it stresses you out.

Azuarc, my BokuTen link had to get taken down so you can just skip that one unless you really wanna hear it again
I have been more into visual novels and learning Japanese recently.

I noticed one of the links on my playlist was dead. I didn't check to see what it was. Is that song not available anywhere else?
