'Man is Wolf to Man' 

Put a note in the OP about the fact that I approved this.

I also recommend that you increase the minimum from three hours, but it's up to you.

Well... If you don't change the points system (+3/-3) it looks like this thing will go on forever! ...or maybe until those five songs hit like several hundred points each.



+ Crazy Train

- Hungry Like a Wolf

I will agree to that.
+Crazy Train
-Dancing in the Dark

I like the new Dancing in the Dark better. :3

Yeah, the negative vote should be worth more points than the positive. That way points are being deducted from the game's total with every post... unless you're just doing it this way at the beginning so that people's favorites aren't easily voted off prematurely.

+ Ozzy - Crazy Train
- Hall & Oates - out of touch

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.
