Committee Elections

It's time again for the committee elections! If you took part in at least two contests from the 96th to the 100th WorldVision, you are eligible to run for the committee. As always, there are five spots on the committee which we are electing for. Typically, users will write a manifesto of the things they'd like to do/change/achieve if they are elected to the position. We can also arrange some Q&A sessions like last time if people are interested to find out more about the candidates. Voting details will be revealed when voting opens, likely to remain as the original average rank method used in the election that took place during the WV86 sign up. Also, committee candidates will still be able to vote, but they cannot rank themselves among their votes.



Hello!

Welcome to the WorldVision Song Contest, based on the Eurovision Song Contest, aiming to provide and unite nations from different parts of the World through music. The WorldVision Song contest is an outlet to showcase the popular or native music of your nation. As with every contest, there are a few simple rules and regulations that you'll need to follow. If you're new, continue on to the FAQ/Guide To WorldVision! If you are simply looking for the rules, look no further than the box below:

How It Works

  • Each nation will rank the other nations out of 10. Each number below 4 adds a scaled negative score whereas each number above 4 adds a scaled positive score (4 provides a neutral value). The complete score of each nation will be the total sum of the positive and negative scores. At this point, any nation with a negative score or 0 will be considered to have 0 televote points (only the bottom few nations might receive this). The rest of the nations with a positive score will have this score then multiplied until the total scores are equal to the amount of points distributed through the points on the IC thread (this from now is the IC "Juries").
  • This multiplied number will then be the televote score for each nation.
  • Unlike in the test-run, the committee will assume responsibility for the televote, that is its recording and maintenance. This info will be given to the host when all nations have voted on the IC thread or when the deadline passes. This will allow the vote to not be influenced by the host, and to make sure the formula used is accurate.
  • The committee will also be responsible for publishing the complete voting result overview at the end of the voting, including the individual votes of nations, as well as the overall voting breakdown.
  • If the percentage of nations receiving 0 points in the televote exceeds 10% of the total competing nations that edition, the committee will reserve the right to change these percentages so that the percentage of nations receiving 0 points falls under 10% once again, as long as the nation's raw televote score is above -10. In this case, weightings changes will be done so that it does not affect any position in the top 3.
  • The host will be free to announce these results how they see fit, with the committee's strong recommendation to reveal them in the style of either of lowest to highest in the televote, or according to current standings after the jury vote.
  • In the event of a tie, the jury vote takes precedence.

Televote Instructions

  • In addition to the standard 12-1 points that we all post on the IC thread (which remains the same) there will also be an additional requirement. Each contestant must also submit a response to a google form in which they will rate each song from 1-10 (out of a maximum of 10) - with 1 to a song which they hated and 10 to a song they loved (and everything in between).
  • There are no restrictions on televoting - You can allocate scores in the televote however you wish, and you do not need this to be the same metric by which you measure your "jury" scores. Some suggestions may be to split your scores according to the Music/Lyrics/RP etc., but this is optional. We will still check for invalid votes, for example every nation being ranked the same, or in a specific "pattern", but this won't be an issue if one votes fairly.
  • You can give your puppet a maximum of 6 out of 10 in the televote and vice-versa to the main nation. If you have a puppet you will have to submit a second set of televoting points - however, you can submit a single set of points and include the ranking for both your main nation and puppet nation in the same form. You must inform the committee if you wish to do this in advance.
  • If you do not submit a televote, you will receive a 25% penalty on your original televote score (which will then be redistributed among the rest of the nations according to their televoting score). It is strongly recommended that you submit a televote score, but if you don't submit one, you don't have to worry about being disqualified.


As it was introduced prior to the start of '79, the same strike system for punishments will be in effect, where players breaking certain contest rules will receive strikes depending on the severity.

    • One Strike: No immediate consequences;
    • Two Strikes: One-contest ban;
    • Three Strikes: Two-contest ban.
  • Strikes expire after five editions; however, a strike expiring during a ban does not edit or shorten it.
  • Bans stack; that is, a nation reaching three strikes within one edition is immediately banned for the following three editions.
  • Bans erase strikes once they are completed.

    Here are the following issues that can net you a strike:

    One strike:
    • Not voting in the contest (will also disqualify a contestant from competing)
    • Changing votes without Worldvision Committee supervision.
    • Posting halftime results when not the host or WVC & refusing to remove results (which also results in disqualification)
    • Posting an incomplete entry.
    • Not declaring a new puppet, or when transferring ownership of a puppet.

    Two strikes:
    • Engaging in tactical voting.
    • Intentionally refusing to vote.
    • Attempts to evade a ban.
    • Entering more than one puppet in the contest.


FAQ / Guide To WorldVision


I'm new here, how does this all work?

Welcome! Here at WorldVision, we write our own lyrics to existing songs, then vote on them! Many of us write performances and background information on the performer as well. This contest is based heavily on the Eurovision Song Contest, so it helps a lot if you're familiar with it! One major difference from it is that the winner doesn't host the next contest- here we have people bid each edition to host the next contest.

That sounds fun! How do I sign up?

Signing up is simple! You can fill out and post the application below, or simply state your interest in joining. If you do use the application, you don't need to fill everything in.

Code: Select all
[b]Nation Name:[/b] Your nation's name goes here.
[b]Official Broadcaster:[/b] Your official broadcaster for WV goes here.
[b]Song Title:[/b] The IC Song title goes here.
[b]Artist(s) Name(s):[/b] The name of your act goes here.

[b]Tune:[/b] The real-life tune you're basing your song on goes here.


This is all so exciting! I want to host!

In order to host, you need to have fully participated once, especially to get the feel of how the contest runs. While you wait, you can look at current bids to learn how good bids look like. If you've signed up before host voting has begun, then you can vote for the host! Once you've finished a contest, you can bid for host, as long as you don't vote for your own.

How do I write an entry?

Writing an entry is just a bit more work than Alexander Rybak makes it seem. Most of us use an existing song as a tune, which we usually link through YouTube, and rewrite the lyrics so that they are original- which means that we wrote them ourselves and did not copy the real lyrics (at least 80% should be your own, which is generally easy if you write your own). Translating real lyrics does not count!

To do well, it's best to write a performance and choose a tune that hasn't been used before - don't be afraid to ask us if you're unsure! In addition, it's always good to look at past contests and learn from the winners and highest placed entries.

If you do post a reservation/placeholder post for your entry, please make sure that you finish it with a completed set of lyrics. If you don't finish, or if you don't withdraw on the OOC thread, you will receive a strike, which is explained in the spoiler below this section.

The entry deadline passed, and there's a mistake in my entry! Can't I just fix it?

Please let the Committee know first! If it's a big edit, you'll need to ask for permission. If you're just fixing spelling, formatting, or a link, then it's fine! But if you make a big edit without permission, like finishing lyrics or adding more RP, you might get disqualified.

So what comes next? Voting?

Yes, that's right! After the entry deadline, you cannot edit your entry without permission from the Committee. After the host posts the interval act and opens voting, you may post your votes. Just like in Eurovision, you give 12 points to your favourite entry, then 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and finally 1 point to your next favourite. Please vote on time!! The host may choose to close voting after the deadline, but if you do not vote on time you will be disqualified.

Next, you do the televote. Here, it means that you open the form that is linked by the host, and rank each entry from 1 to 10, with 1 being worst and 10 being best. Ever since the official implementation of the televote in WV83, everyone's televotes will be revealed by the Committee, so you can see the full breakdown after the contest ends. We use a weighting system to calculate the televotes - this will be changed at the discretion of the committee if the number of 0's exceeds 10% of participating nations (this will be done only for those nations with a score of above -10).

This sounds awesome! I want to enter a puppet nation and write more entries!

You can do that! You may enter a second nation, but make sure you confirm that it is yours in the signups! However with great power comes great responsibility: you can only give a maximum of 5 points to yourself in the jury vote, and only a maximum score of 6 in the televote, and together with your main nation you can only give a maximum of 14 jury points to another nation.

I do not feel safe or welcome here. What do I do?

If you are bullied, harassed, intimidated/etc by someone within the contest, please contact the Committee or one of its members, and we will ensure confidentiality and analyze the situation. We will deal with punishment as deemed appropriate depending on the severity of the offence.

I have more questions! Who do I ask?

If you have more questions you can ask in the thread, join the Discord server linked at the top of this post, or TG the WorldVision Committee. The Discord server is probably where you are going to get the fastest reply.


So basically, be original, try to be fair, don't be a jerk, and have fun. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to TG the Committee - it helps if you add the Committee's individual member names (Aenglide, Alezian Union, Britonisea, Carrelie, Malta Comino Gozo ) in the "To:" box along with "WorldVision Committee" for a faster response. DM on Discord also works!

Even if you've missed the deadline or aren't participating, feel free to discuss the contest in this thread or post commentary in the IC. You'll find that we all greatly appreciate some good commentary.

With all that said, welcome to WorldVision!

    Eljida returns to the WorldVision Song Contest after an absence of 11 editions. The nation last participated in WorldVision 90 where Hatima Nazerova placed 12th out of 35 contestants, scoring a total of 149 points. Afterward, Eljida's broadcaster EPT never confirmed to participate in the following editions and thus wasn't expected to return to the contest, only participating on 2 separate occasions before WorldVision 90, those being WorldVision 81 and WorldVision 85. The contest itself is still streamed on Eljidian television but with abysmal ratings, but persisting nevertheless. There was buzz on whether or not Eljida would return to the contest for the 100th edition held in Kalosia, but it was made evident that EPT had no intention in participating as the country wasn't confirmed to send an act. The Centennial Edition of the contest however saw a 36% increase in viewership compared to WorldVision 99. Not long after information for the 101st edition came along, EPT had put out an announcement that Eljida would return to the contest. EPT had announced that Deniz Oktem and Aya Isik would represent the nation with the song "Aйти жaнум" (Ayti janum).

    Once upon a time, Alezia was one of the biggest names in the Worldvision Song Contest. How did a newly reunified country continued such a positive streak, then hosting, then winning the contest afterwards? It remains a mysterious question. But that was then, after that came the dark age. 16th, 14th, 18th, 18th, 23rd, and then finally 28th. Surely something must be wrong, and Alezians knew it. And thus ABA promised in front of angry Alezians that they would take the contest back to square one, and Operation : Worldvision is their answer to that.

    ABA gave all four regions freedom to pick their five favourite artists, and gave the national public the ability to add one more person into each episode. National Finals were held, people cry in joy, in sadness, in fear, in many other ways. And now, the nation's going to watch as they and international juries pick someone that might restart Alezia's glory.


    Image
    Tune: ONE OK ROCK - Clock Strikes


    Image
    Tune: HIVI! - Kereta Kencanku


    Image
    Tune: Doda - My Melody


    Image
    Tune : MARINA & The Diamonds - Bubblegum B****


    (ALEZIAN PUBLIC SELECTION)
    Image
    Tune : George Ezra - Gold Rush Kid


    Who will represent Alezia at this edition's Worldvision Song Contest? Will Alezia have another hit? Or something else will happen? Nevertheless that's a question for later. What's important now is the nation and the world... Selecting who will try and put Alezia back in the top.


    OOC:
    Hello everyone, Lez here!
    Last place... Hehe, that was something. I did something but the execution was poor hence why it scored poorly.
    But now, I'm back in the game with a new National Final! I'm really trying to turn things around this time.

    Anyway, how to vote, you wonder? WELL:
    RANK ALL SONGS AND GIVE
    12 POINTS TO THE BEST SONG,
    10 TO THE 2ND,
    8 TO THE 3RD,
    7 TO THE 4TH, AND
    6 TO THE 5TH.

    You can vote through NS Telegram or by Discord on Lez#0535, but I very recommend that you use Discord because I'm more active there.
    You have until 4th of August 2022 at 5 PM WITA / 10 AM BST (changing the deadline to give more time for more voters)
    5th of August 2022 at 6 AM WITA / 11 PM BST to give your picks!

    Please vote! Alezia needs YOUR help!
    With love,
    Lez

    Yes, Placely will be sending something somewhat serious this time. I'm struggling to think of a title at the minute but I'll probably have one thought up by the time the contest itself starts:

    Nation Name: Placely Placington
    Official Broadcaster: Wait, We Have A Broadcaster?
    Song Title: TBA

    Saviera returns. Kalosia is our master.

    The name of the song is British Tapas and will be performed by Reina Unida.

    It is sung from the perspective of a servant or a cook who is present at a tea party presumably taking place at the end of the year. There are at least 5 known attendees: Queen Elizabeth II, Meghan Markle, a clown named Bozo who is also a doctor, a shy, unnamed Rwandan girl, and her brother Otto. The singer explains that the food being served is bland due to the culinary value of spices being ignored in favour of its economic value, rendering the royal kitchen both unwilling and unable to cook well-spiced food. However, one of the dishes served is known to contain dairy, which the unnamed girl is allergic to. This prompts a severe reaction, and it is implied that she did not survive due to being "without pride". The use of rainbow imagery in the staging implies that she could have survived if she had access to some sort of rainbow-related thing. In the aftermath, Bozo leaves the party and the singer resolves to make more food just for him, although she ends up running out of a key ingredient—potato smileys.

    When is teatime with the Queen and Meghan Markle? Find out at WorldVision 101!

    Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

    Malaakh Dayan Internally Announced for HARESHET Gig


    HARESHET have stolen a march following Melis Bileh's fifth place in the 100th edition of the contest. While previously remaining coy about future participation, the success of the 100th edition, alongside increased viewership potential with the introduction of semi finals, has convinced the broadcaster to renew its relationship with the world's biggest song competition. It is being done on the cheap however - Malaakh Dayan, a Kishraeli singer from Shapmangat, was chosen with her song "Berserk", which was initially released as the nation's official pride anthem of 2022. Indeed, it's run-away commercial success convinced HARESHET to repurpose the song for WorldVision, after previous delayed scuppered plans to use it as the nation's 98th edition entry.

    You can listen to the song below:

    Malaakh Dayan - BERSERK
    Tune: Eden Ben Zaken - WTF

    This edition of Worldvision comes after a top-10 finish for Polkopia at WV100, after Viktoriya Akšan brought tenth place to her home nation, singing the song, Wish You Well, in Kalosia. Following Polkopia's success in the contest, the nation's primary public broadcasting network, the PNB, will continue to claim broadcasting rights over the Worldvision Song Contest. In order to select their entry, the PNB has opted to continue the tradition of using a National Final in order to determine Polkopia's entrant for this edition of the contest. It should come as a surprise to no one that this National Final will once again take place in the form of the Landa vy Polkopiya, which has served as the National Final for Polkopia for decades and is one of Polkopia's longest-running TV shows. The contest dates back to 1972, where the winner of the competition received a cash price and was flown to Peeto in order to record more tracks with an established Polkopian record label. Of course, times in Polkopia are much different now, and apart from exposure on several media platforms, the winner of the Landa vy Polkopiya typically has the opportunity to represent Polkopia in the Worldvision Song Contest.

    The lineup for this edition of the Landa vy Polkopiya has been revealed! As always, the PNB is calling on international juries to submit their votes before the conclusion of the semi-finals, and this result will be mixed with a televote in a 50/50 format in order to calculate the overall winner of the competition. The list of competing entries can be found below:
