Did you guys see Sammy's post?

I'm not missing, but I will be gone after this posting. 

Participation rates in the games I run have been declining for a few weeks now.  I expected this to happen, but I also expected that there would be some new members to join in.  Unfortunately, new membership doesn't happen here.

For those interested, there are currently 2 unfinished games.  Everything needed to continue both games is housed in the applicable selection threads so.......continue if you like.

It appears only six of us are left playing. Is there any point in continuing?

Let's change the rules. How about we vote once per hour?  ;D

10 more votes for Mahler 6 and it’s in the can.  :laugh:

The irony is that, when the game started, I figured there would be no lack of support for M6 (my favourite work), so I decided to promote Berlioz instead  :D.

It's not on the board, nor is its composer.   ;)

Co-composer Karajan should be proud!
