    Both Sean's original idea and Nati's altered one are great!

    Re: Fun idea for a spinoff...

    I agree, the idea is a bit silly imo. The song you end up with wouldn't feel like your own, and I think everyone would probably end up backing their original song xD It's just an excuse to be able to give yourself points if you ask me :P And the poor people who get randomly assigned their own song would be at a disadvantage because of that.

    This sounds fun.

    That's the point though, I already said it wouldn't be like a conventional spinoff.....more like a funny experiment.

    NSC Spinoffs: Information

    Rather than using the 'Let's discuss the Rules' thread, I feel it might be appropriate for an official thread where you can discuss matters related to spinoffs, and also find out easily what's happening

    So, I'll keep this first post updated with the schedule, and the latest happening with the NSC spinoff contests :wink:

    The current rota for Spinoffs is:
    NSC NF/ESC
    THEME
    AATW
    THEME
    OLDIES
    THEME
    NSC NF/ESC


    Current spinoff: Mystery 2

    And the schedule for upcoming spinoffs (with provisional dates) and [host country]:

    Code:
    54. NSC NF 9               (15 NOV to 29 NOV) [VORHOTA]
    55. MINOR THEME         (30 NOV to 14 DEC) (Adverts/Acoustic/Musicals/Short/Parodies?) [HAL/SCO?]
    56. CHRISTMAS 3          (15 DEC to 29 DEC) [ARJASTAN]
    57. OLDIES: 00s           (01 JAN to 14 JAN) [QELE]
    58. MAJOR THEME         (15 JAN to 29 JAN) 
    59. NSC ESC 10: COVERS   (30 JAN to 13 FEB) [REIGNLAND]



    Basic Information

    Spinoff contests are smaller contests in the NSC world with a specific theme taking place aside from the main event. Most of the NSC rules continue to apply, with some exceptions relating to themes.
    See also: http://nsc.wikia.com/wiki/Spinoff_contests

    Some notable other rules:

    * Spinoffs run alongside the main NSC event, and take place one after the other, following the rota (see above). Only one spinoff event can be held at a time.

    * Spinoffs should last for approximately two weeks each; one week for confirmation of entries, and one week for the show and voting. They may last for one week only, if confirmation fills up within one or two days.

    * The absolute maximum number of countries allowed to participate is now 32 (to accommodate the increased nations due to WL), except in cases of particularly popular spinoffs.

    * Re-using NSC songs again in spinoffs is discouraged, but not forbidden.

    * Likewise, re-using spinoff songs in the main NSC is discouraged but not forbidden.

    * However, re-using songs that have already been in another spinoff is forbidden, except in cases of spinoffs where different criteria is judged.

    * Waiting list countries are more than welcome

    * Please add to the thread if you can think of any more general rules :cheers

    Specific Spinoffs

    All Around The World (AATW)

    This is a recurring spinoff, hosted by the winner of the previous AATW spinoff. The theme of this spinoff is a real-world country chosen by the host. All artists competing in this event must be from the chosen country. In the case of groups, the majority of people in the group must be from the country. The song can be in any language.

    Oldies

    This is a recurring spinoff, hosted by the winner of the previous Oldies spinoff. The theme of this spinoff is a time period chosen by the host. The different time periods that can be chosen vary in length. Most of the time periods are single decades, but very early time periods will be much broader, if chosen. All songs participating must have been released in the time period. Covers of such songs which themselves were released later are not allowed. Modified versions of the songs released later are also not allowed. However, the video entered can be from any time.

    Eurovision Song Contest Spinoff (NSC ESC)

    This is a recurring spinoff, hosted by the winner of the previous NSC ESC spinoff. The theme of this event is to enter a Eurovision song from any of the past Eurovision Song Contests. Once a song is entered, it cannot be entered again. Please refer here for a list of ESC songs already used in NSC ESC editions. The video submitted for this contest must be the live performance of the song at the contest, unless the video is not on youtube.

    Eurovision National Finals Spinoff (NSC NF)

    This is a recurring spinoff, hosted by the winner of the previous NSC NF spinoff. The theme of this event is to enter songs that took part (and didn't win) a country's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Once a song is entered, it cannot be entered again.

    Themed Spinoffs

    These are spinoffs which can be hosted by anyone, often the nation with the idea of the theme or the winner of the previous themed spinoff. For these spinoffs, all the participating entries must follow a specific theme set for the spinoff. The theme can either be related to the nature of the songs (e.g. Nonsense Theme, Different Language Theme) or the nature of the contest and voting (e.g. Mystery Theme, Congratulations). Rules for specific themes are detailed in the individual threads for these spinoffs.
    The decision of the next theme can take place at anytime, and anyone can suggest an theme. Re-runs of past themes can take place only a year after its first run.
    An exception to this is "Congratulations". Congratulations takes place after every ten NSC editions, and takes place within the spinoff schedule. However, the theme in Congratulations is to enter NSC songs submitted by your country in the last 10 editions as a celebration. More than 32 nations may take part.
