Rule suggestion: no more 10 submissions per artist

@AdeyC

I think it would be good for the game to set a limit of submissions per artist to 10. Technically, this must be precise: the name of the act, artist, band , project, must be exactly the same to be forbidden more than 10.

Examples: John Lennon and the Beatles are two different acts. But also any act prominently fronted by an artist under a different name can be considered different - which would be technically the only way for mischievous players to contourn the rule. But at least there would be a limit.

Other examples: Prince and Prince and the Revolution: different acts. Neil Young and Neil Young & Crazy Horse: different acts. Teddy Wilson & his Orchestra and Billie Holiday: two different acts.

This rule would on the other hand forbid the submissions of any act which has been submitted already more than ten times under the same name - for example: Madonna, Björk, Lana Del Rey.

Technically for the manager or any player willing to help, this forces to verify the exact name of the act submitted (artist, band, etc). It's easy, but you can't trust YouTube only for that.

Also maybe it's a work that should be done already for the used list, which could be time consuming given how long this used list is already.

Of course, a poll must be sugggested to all the participants of the game to apply this rule. It can only be applied if it gets a major agreement.

Feel free to reformulate my suggestion for the poll as my english isn't perfect. Also feel free to only submit this poll if you agree with this suggestion in the first place. I'm not a regular player anymore anyway.

Have a nice day

Re: Rule suggestion: no more 10 submissions per artist

I can see why you are proposing this but I don't like these limitations. My vote would be no

A limit to ten submissions per act should never bug any real music lover in this world. If it was up to me only, I would set the limit to 5!

I disagree. Diversity comes quite naturally in this game. And if you happen to love just that one song from an artist, but more than 10 of his/her/their bad songs have already been nominated

Diversity is very related to the willingness of the participants. Principle of the game is that as a participant you have to listen to all the songs submitted by everyone. I may have myself many songs I love from artists submitted often, and won't submit them for an elementary care of diversity.

But I already know the answers that can be objected to my suggestion: this is just a game.

Yes, and a game that I, for one, better stay away from, since it seems my problem with it isn't shared by others.

It's not worth to make a poll for my suggestion, @AdeyC , I just have to quit.

Re: Rule suggestion: no more 10 submissions per artist

I don't think we have the right to restrict what people send for the games, provided it fits the theme.

However you can encourage voter patterns to change and become more anti-vulture in general. That is highly familiar artists/songs to them are reduced in their weighting when it comes to pt allocation so as to encourage and reward the more novel, interesting sends. For example you might really like the song, but still choose not to give that song double digit pts just to show your appreciation for a discovery you enjoyed. This means no more instant 12s by virtue of familiarity.

This is individual, people can choose whether to adopt these anti vulture guidelines, but if many people take it up, you will notice quite some changes in scoring overall.

I am tired of people repeating the same artist for the nth time too but I don't back this rule.
