I really wanna do mine (thus where my vote will go), but the others are intriguing as well!

Oh, I guess I needed to say something about mine? I saw it bumped so I just thought it was put back in contention.

Yeah, I would need to know who was planning on running it. We can put it on the list in the OP and people can vote for it in a post, if you would like.

Sorry about that, my post was "man it sure would be swell if someone could run this one this time".

Music that plays very early in a game, like an attract mode, main menu theme, opening cutscene when you start a new game, etc.

While both First Impressions and Ending Theme Domes sound neat, I'ma go for Ending Theme. Partly because I find those themes generally more interesting and iconic, and also because they're probably much easier to define.

I guess I just figured that anyone who didn't "win" before would still be interested in doing theirs next time. But eh, don't worry about it. Too complicated to try and change things now anyway.

Yeah, that's where my vote goes since ending themes usually stick in my head longer.

The guideline is whether a typical player can expect to hear it within ~10 minutes of turning the game on. Music that draws you in and sets the tone for the journey ahead.

Think Stage 1-1 vs. The Red Wings vs. Scars of Time vs. Baba Yetu.

The reason I voted for ending themes is that they often incorporate all the different songs in the game. The best ones revisit the journey you've just completed, and I find them deeply satisfying for that reason.

Answered the wrong question. Would an Amiga game be legal? What about Atari 800? ZX Spectrum? Flash games?

Atari 800 is a computer, as is the ZX Spectrum, PC-88, Commodore, etc. If you know of Flash games that ran on any of the computers I mentioned or are from the era, sure.

I voted end credits this time because the more I thought about my options the more excited I got. Definitely voting for the PC games one if it comes up next time though.

I may have made the voting period a bit too long. I don't want to shorten it this time, as someone may get left out that thought they had more time, but I'm definitely shortening it to a week next time.

My intention was that Musicdomes can produce fatigue in a way the Popularity Contests don't, so we need a longer cooling period, but as I said, I may have overdone it this time.

Yay! I'll be setting up the submission thread tomorrow. I need to figure out how I want to format it.
