    Default Eagles DVD Survivor: Farewell I

    Time for the Farewell I Survivor, where we vote off the song performances on the DVD / BluRay until we get to the last one standing!

    If you're new, for a basic overview of the game, see this post: Survivor Overview

    I'm going to list all the songs performed on the concert here. Vote for the performances that you feel should be eliminated from the list. The song performances that get the most votes will be taken off of the list (or, in the language of Survivor, "voted off of the island.") Each round, one more song will get axed, until there's only one left. Remember: you're voting for the one you think should GO, not the one you think should stay.

    Special note: Due to the fact that there are so many performances, the first 10 rounds will be double eliminations - two performances will go per round. For the first 10 rounds, you should vote for two song performances.

    Note: Do not criticize how/why other people vote. Their reasons are their own and they are free to vote however they like. Also, never attack a fellow poster. You can disagree without making it personal. Sometimes these games can get heated, but remember... it's still just a game.

    Each round will last 48 hours after posting to give people a chance to vote who don't post every day. That means that the first round will end at 8:00 Eastern time the day after tomorrow. If you miss a round, don't think you can't play. It's all good!

    Since there may be discussion posts, be sure to make it clear when you are casting your vote. Once the board clock strikes 8:00 pm Eastern on the second day, no more votes will be counted for that round - even if it's only seconds after. Your votes also cannot be changed once you have voted, even if you change your mind or make a mistake. Once it's on the record, that's it - so be careful!

    If you get confused about what round we are in, look at this post. I'll always update it to reflect the current round. Also feel free to post any questions if you don't understand what's going on.

    If there is a tiebreaker, then ALL votes from ALL previous rounds are tallied and whoever has the most prior votes is eliminated. Thatís the way itís done on the real show, thatís the way itís done here. If there is a complete tie with prior votes (Murphyís Law), then I'll have a sudden-death trivia question ready. The tie-breaker question will be asked one hour after results are in, if there is need for it. The first person who answers it correctly gets to break the tie. The odds of that happening are slim, but you never know, and it's good to be prepared. The exception is the last round. If the tiebreaker does not resolve the last round, then the tie will be allowed to stand.

    In order to avoid voter fraud and trolling, we require that you must be "a member in good standing" as defined by the Terms of Service for at least two weeks before the start of the game in order to cast a vote.

    MJ - During the first ten double-elimination rounds, each player needs to vote for two songs per round. I added the following note to the rules in the opening post:

    Special note: Due to the fact that there are so many performances, the first 10 rounds will be double eliminations - two performances will go per round. For the first 10 rounds, you should vote for two song performances.

    So, please vote for another performance for this round. You can edit your post to add your second vote. And for future voters, please include both of your votes in the same post.

    Silent Spring and Life's Been Good - both solo songs.

    We got our money's worth with that DVD, didn't we?

    Silent Spring and No More Cloudy Days.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley
