Ska, when will thou post the contestant list? Even if it hasn't hit the cap yet? Trying to plan my Friday night. Thanks!
ska, i have a request. On my signup form, I believe I put 'no preference' for timing.
but can i actually change that to 'as late as possible'?
so of the 45 individuals, if i can be anywhere between 23-45, that would be perfect
if not, then i can still make my schedule work.
yay!! okay that's it for my thing haha

do you mean here here as in this specific thread, or just in the 'live programming and events' section?
will you be making an original and separate karaoke 2016 thread?
Both. All of the above. Yes. We'll have a main post (that I'll try to get sticky) for contest rules and online registration but I'll also point it out in this thread when it's ready.

Please note, I know it's after 3 but I actually have to rebuild one of our forms from scratch here at the last second. I'm sorry for those of you who are diligent and ready to go, I'll try to have it up by 4pm at the latest.

do you think it'll still be today or maybe pushed out to tomorrow?
thanks for all the hard work as always :)

So I've checked through most of the requests so far. A few of them we already had in the database, and there's only been a couple I'm not sure if we will be able to get in time. I just wanted to take a second to note a specific request --

Thank you so much for the updates!! Looking forward to it. Will contest signups be announced on the Fanime Twitter/FB? Or should I just refresh the forums tomorrow afternoon?
Just refresh here, I can't guarantee announcements elsewhere but I can guarantee them here =)

I am here! Sorry if I took too long for you guys. I'll get a couple things out of the way and then try to address any questions that were in this thread.

First, the thread for song requests for 2016 are open, post anything and everything you can think of. We can't always find it but we try to keep a record of it just in case.

Next, Contests signups will be coming within the next couple of days. I'm going to aim for the 5th, with opening time around 3pm. I should also have the rules up by then as well, though I don't think we've changed much from last year so if you want a refresher and can find them, the 2015 rules are a good guideline.

Actually there weren't that many questions, other than where I was. Come on, I usually don't wake up until may 1st! I've been working on improving our system and giving it a lot of extra little fun things. For example, our lyric system now supports kanji lyrics for our native speakers, along with yomigana. Only for select songs so far, but we're improving our selection slowly. I know that if I get enough time between now and con, I want to add a J├Ąger function. You can guess what that will do.

We're sticking with a minute and a half or verse/chorus for prelims. I have to get back to you on the final number of entrants, because it certainly isn't 25 but I'm not sure if we're going with the number we used last year.

Anyway, hope that clears up a few things. More discussion! More questions! More singing preparations! Heck, if you even have suggestions for things, I can't make any promises but I can at least hear what you have to say! Just have fun!

okay i'll stop now :)

How do you apply for the karaoke contest?

typically the karaoke people make a post about the competition and have the rules, the signup link and the song book links in that post. but...i don't see one yet...
and fanime is in a month...

preliminary round accepts 25 people (i think), and ur allowed to sing for 2.5 minutes (or did they change it back to 2 mins...?) and the song has to be jpop, jrock or from an anime. there's some variations of that rule. then 10 people get picked, and in the final round, u sing a song of ur choice for 5 mins.

karaoke people...where art thou...? :/
i hopefully will get a chance to do open mic this year. but theres always such a superrrrrr long line for it, plus im busy doing black and white ball stuff hah

HI guys!
i'm a little surprised that theres been no activity about the karaoke competition yet

but this thread is for any potential contestants!
wat are you singing?
how long have you been singing?
what makes you nervous?
how can we help dispel those nerves? :D

i'm singing a new song by BoA. super excited :D

Since there isn't an official thread for the 2016 Ball, I'm posting my question here.

I'm planning on wearing a traditional saree to the Ball (Blue Diamond cosplay), but traditional sarees typically come with halter tops due to shirt fabric twisting under the pull of the skirt. I intend to solve this problem by simply wearing a leotard underneath to hide my skin, but would it be alright if the leotard was skin colored so as not to ruin the look of the saree?

hi reyn. that would be fine.

I just purchased a prom type dress it's all the way down to my feet so I don't worry about length but it doesn't have straps.
It's a strapless so should I just wear a cute little over jacket or a cardigan? Or should I attach straps?
I didn't read anything in here that stayed we couldn't wear an evening gown without straps.
But I want to make sure I have a cute cover top if I do need one
strapless dresses are fine. i've personally worn strapless dresses before. as long as the dress stays UP, then you're fine.

Is costume hats ok? Like a witches hat? :)
i believe hats are okay for the most part. it must be part of the costume and if you put it down, it's your responsibility to keep track of it.

Is it too late to sign up for the gong show? And are MP3/phones okay if the song is on there?

phones are a no-go for sure. but a regular mp3/ipod should be fine.

Can we wear short cardigans over our dress?

there's no rule against cardigans/sweaters. the only thing that we are really looking for is the length of the dress. no matter how long/short your cardigan is, your dress itself must be the appropriate length.

a note about cardigans/jackets/sweaters. there is no coat check, so if you put your jacket down somewhere, its your responsibility to keep track of it.

Anyone else getting an error message when they submit their song choices for karaoke? D:
what does the error message say? i signed up with no problems.

Entry failed. Please double-check your information and try againYou have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'm Alive','' ,'')' at line 2

I have absolutely no idea what that means :')

hmm..i also have no idea what that means
the only thing that i can think of with regards to an error message is possibly inputting ur information wrong?
either refresh or close out that page and try again?
ska would be the best person to answer any questions
