    I came up with the idea of having a "guess the track" sort of competetion. Here's how it would go. I would post a very small segment (as in 2-3 seconds) of a track from one of the star wars soundtracks. The first person to post the name of the track and the film its from wins! Although there isn't any kind of prize except the satisfaction of winning.

    Rules:
    1) You may only post one guess. If you post more than one, i will only except your first guess.
    2) No clues or hints
    3) you will one week to post your reply
    4) All entries must be posted in the topic marked Competition: Guess the track.

    Although i have not created such a topic yet because i want to see the responce to this first. Please note that in a few days, i'm going on holiday and so i might only have time to run one weeks competition. Sort of a pilot scheme to see how people like it.

    After i come back i shall try my best to keep the competition going with a new sound bit every week.

    There you have it, what do you think?

    If you post files with low sound quality then the mods should be OK with this.
    It sounds like an interesting idea. If you are doing 2-3 second clips then these can be sneakily chosen during parts of tracks where particular cues segue to each other, and could end up being quite challenging.

    It's worth a try anyway.

    It could be fun. 2-3 seconds is a short amount of time. I think the Music Forum needs a trivia game like the CT Forum has and the winner for each round gets colors (for one week).

    Well this shouldn't conflict with halibut's thread as this is only Star Wars and halibut's encompasses film music in general. But y'know, having not been on the boards for ages (I only came back near ROTS time) I never noticed halibut's thread 'til now so I would also like to give that a go.

    Cool, i'll get to work on the first "bit".

    here's a test. I want to know:
    How easy it is
    How long it took you to get the answer
    How many of you get it right

    I realise that the bit is not an ideal choice but it'll do for a test.
    C&C?

    War-monger send me a PM with the correct answer. But i think that rather than you all sending me PM's, i'll set up a new topic. And i'll try to make it harder this time.
