Greetings. Welcome to:
"Charlie_Danger's (1st) Video Rap Invitational"

I will open up registration and suggestions here, along with some tentative rules and entrants.

So far, here's who I believe was down for the tournament:

ENTRANTS
theLwerd
Vi_Veri
Cody_Franklin
I-am-a-panda

I exclude myself from the list, and only intend to join if we need to even the entrants.

RULES
The first rule about the Rap Battles is that you do not talk about the Rap Battles, except in select, approved forums and messages.
The second rule about the Rap Battles is that you do not regard the first rule about the Rap Battles.
The third rule about the Rap Battles is that anyone can compete. You need nothing more than a camera and a YouTube account.
The fourth rule about the Rap Battles is that you can be creative. You can rap in any form you wish, and can add variety to your video (including editing and session sounds) at your disgression.
The fifth rule about the Rap Battles is that you have no time limit: you are only constrained by the length requirements on YouTube, and you may only post one video (e.g. no posting "Video PART ONE/TWO, etc.") per round.
The sixth rule about the Rap Battles is that you must respect your opponent. Disses and lewd language is permitted and recommended, but you must maintain sportsmanlike conduct and a fair attitude.
The seventh rule about the Rap Battles is that you must have fun. If you are not enjoying the tournament, inform the Moderator/Tournament Director.
The eighth rule about the Rap Battles is that you must, in your best effort, post videos in time. Should you know that you will not sufficiently post in time, you must post an explanation in the battle. You may do this only twice, after then, or if you do not post notification, the debate will be forfeited. If your opponent posts a notification, you are to either not post during that round, or submit to your rap (for the round) being completely ignored.
The ninth rule about the Rap Battles is that the Moderator/Tournament Director decides who faces who, and the "Instigator" must post the following title: "Round __ Video Rap Invitational" and select five rounds, with an indefinate voting period. The winner of the round will be determined and announced by the Moderator/Tournament Director, after listening to the voice of the viewers.

I'm sure I've left something out. Be sure to quote and write suggested changes.

Any free software enabling you to create beats, edit videos, etc is extremely welcomed.

No, but I got a really old version for pretty cheap.

The fourth rule allows for this.

What about Stephen Hawking style?

That is allowed, but flow would be difficult to control. I see that as being either a wonderfully inventive idea, or an utter failure.

So I can't turn a Metallica song into a grime remix?

Probably; that way we can have four rounds of sweet rhythm and flow.

I suppose that this is true, also. I'm quite excited about this.

Haha! It was fun, but I've already debated you, not to mention I don't want to get pwned by a Boondocks character.

Alrightie then.

Post who you have rapped against before, and I'll try to avoid matching you guys.

Also, how are you guys considering setting this up?
I kinda want to avoid the single-elimination bracket.

I figure this formula:

If 1-7 people: Round Robin
If 8-12 people: Prelim Rounds, then Elims (Semis/Top Four)
If 13-16 people: Double-Elimination (with or without power match)

In theory, I think that it sounds alright.

Round Robin would take FOREVER

Imagine five (which is above the average in my formula) contestants:

That's four rounds per contestant, which means nine total.

All four would run at the same time, meaning that within about a week, the stats would be up.
Run-offs would then be performed, within the next couple of days, making this a week and a half long tournament.

In theory, the shortest tournament on DDO.

If I have to do multiple debates at the same time, I won't do the tournament.

I'm pretty sure that that isn't going to happen.

Check Charlie's post above mine.
