Something is "broken" when it doesn't work as intended. Song Fight works as intended.

Nothing is stopping anyone at any time from writing a song and taking as long as they want to finish.

Oh, chill. It's just an expression. Of course it works as intended. This is a special area called "Complaints and Suggestions". It's also not broken.

What a perfect analogy. From two nearly identical threads I vote this the clearest, least biased response.

The word "broken" isn't really an expression.

all you need is 9 more posts to hit trouble stick man... an apt title I think!!



Broken is the wrong term here. Really, you seem to be saying, damn my life sucks I don't have time to prioritize songfight submissions... but JOS, you've solved that problem, so now we can revel in a cool side fight, in which Generic will calim to be involved only to drop out of sight (site?) at the last minute....(obligatory shot).

I don't think you should either. Just don't call it broken when it's not. :)

this thread maybe should be renamed the "arguing semantics" thread.

Hey admin... here's a question... since we can't get a link to the songfight.org put up in the top heading, could we at least get a spellchecker?????


....maybe grammar too....

Activity in a thread is good, I hear...

I'm certainly glad that I was able to generate some traffic, especially with my first post. In the past on the message boards I've seen you have to hit people with a shovel painted like a nude model to get any attention.

So, Jim Of Seattle, do you want to colaborate on coming up with the title for this little endeavour?

Go here because I said so: FRONTLINE
If you don't know what frontline is, watch one of the free streaming episodes. It's an award winning documentary series by PBS & WGBH in Boston.

Negative attention, maybe. It's not terribly hard to get good attention around here as a newbie. Write and record songs, and try your best.

it's easier to get negative attention though. Probably more likely someone will piss someone off than the otherway around....
