Mega Microdome$: Nominations


excused from moderation duty
Staff member
In Mega Microdome$, four smaller-scale music thunderdomes will be run concurrently. From my own suggestions and others', I have selected four that might not have the bench depth to support a full event.

Here are the four categories:
  • North Division: The Coverdome! Every song nominated in this category must be a cover of a previous song by a different artist, and you must sincerely prefer it over the original version.
  • South Division: The Indiedome! Songs from indie video games. Please argue with each other about what counts an indie game. I want to see some real acrimony here, people.
  • East Division: The Smashdome! Pick a song from the soundtrack of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Shouldn't be hard, there's over a thousand songs in that game. Lordy.
  • West Division: The Very Short Dome! Every song in this category must end or loop within 30 seconds. It does not have to be from a video game.
Song nomination will work differently in this event than in previous ones, so be sure to read carefully:
  1. Group your nominations clearly and explicitly into the four different categories.
  2. You can nominate as many songs as you want. Really! Just go nuts. However, you must sort them in priority order. I'll assume that songs that are closer to the start of the post are ones you want more. In order to make the domes sufficiently micro (i.e. a convenient power of 2), I'll exclude songs starting from the low-priority ones.
  3. Don't worry about nominating songs that someone else nominated. I'll skip ones that someone else already posted with a higher rank. In the event of a tie, I'll use the one in the earlier post as a tie-breaker.
  4. If a song qualifies for multiple categories, you can nominate it in multiple categories. I'll leave it up to you to decide if that's a good idea.
I'll leave this thread open for at least a week.

Did you know: I didn't specify which planet's days I would be taking one or two of in order to get started?

To get the North Division (Coverdome) down to 32 entries, I cut everybody's number 4 and up, and the number 3 entries from SpoonyBard, Kirin, and Exposition Owl, as they were the last to post.

To get the South Division (Indiedome) down to 32 entries, I cut everybody's number 4 and up, but didn't have to cut any number 3s.

To get the East Division (Smashdome) down to 32 entries, I cut everybody's number 5 and up, but didn't have to cut any number 4s.

To get the West Division (Very Short Dome) down to 32 entries, I cut everybody's number 5 and up, and the number 4 entries from Exposition Owl and Violentvixen.

Condolences to the pre-eliminated. The voting thread will go up soon.
