Inhuman/Unnatural/Doctored

- Songs that are clearly "altered" or not 100% human sung ala Daft Punk's Harder Better Faster Stronger etc

(don't know if I would include autotune in this, personally no)

Re: Suggestions for future Categories

Will there be a season theme? (Spring/Summer/Autumn/Winter)

Re: Suggestions for future Categories

No Chrono those themes suck as this turns into a massive shitfight with arguments on whether the songs fit the criteria or not

Re: Suggestions for future Categories

I think season themes are great

Anyway I don't think there are any serious theme fights any more since Adey laid down the law. Minor disagreements at most

A "dedicate a song to a TFBSG player" would be fun

Great idea. You'd need to impose a restriction that only one song could be dedicated to any given player though, otherwise we'd have 50 songs dedicated to about 5 players. Adey alone would probably get about 35 dedications

That could make things difficult to administer. Adey could hardly give names of those with nominations along with which players are taken. Then it would be easy to see who dedicated to whom. Would probably have to be an edition where names of people who has sent a song would be withheld and only names of people who got songs dedicated to them published.

I was thinking of a notification in blocks, but this would be even better. In any case it would probably only work as a one-off special game, not as part of the regular game cycle.
