Quick Tips: (Updated March 21st, 2014)

Due to a shockingly high number of fake spam accounts flooding the new registrations, we have temporarily closed new registrations to the forum. We are working on a solution to block the spammers without having to block genuine registration requests.

PLEASE READ the "Quick Tips" thread on this forum before contacting the moderators or admin about any issues you might be having. You will find the Quick Tips answer a lot of questions (logging in, editing posts, et cetera). The web staff appreciate those who read before posting and emailing. Thank you!

A special note: If you are blatantly rude to people, don't be surprised when you are permanently banned. Be nice, or be gone.

Default Vote For The Best official DM Music Video - A Knockout Competition

Firstly, although this is not strictly 'DM related' in accordance with my interpretation of the board rules, could I ask the moderators to leave it here. If it cannot be could we leave it here a week or so before moving it, to give it maximum exposure.

After the success of the best DM track competition I thought we could have a bit of fun waiting for the new album with this. I've sat and put every DM Music Video on a spreadsheet in almost exact order, then used this website http://www.random.org/ to generate entirely random pairings for the competition.

This will effectively be a knockout competition of rounds with the winning song from each pairing going forward. For the first round I'll release 3 pairings a week and leave each poll open for as close to three weeks as I can manage.

Please remember you are voting purely for the quality of the video, not the track, you have to ignore the song, we did that poll a year ago. The only rule for the video to be included is that it has to be available on the music video section on this site, we therefore have 55 to watch and then vote on, over the weeks. All byes will be in the first round, leaving us with 32 to go forward to round 2.

Please do not post your choices in this thread as it will need to be closed but please feel free to post comments on the competition itself.

One vote each please, let's see how it goes
