BuzzJack Music Forum _ Buzzjack Song Contest _ Your Qs per contest of the year

Posted by: JosephStyles Feb 16 2017, 12:16 AM

Not sure if this has been done before, but I was intrigued to see which contest of the year has typically been my best or worst based on whether I qualified or not, and thought it could be a cool thread idea. (I'd have used month names below but they don't always line-up year on year)

Contest number | number of Qs | number of DNQs

01 | 03 | 02 [Q-Q-DNQ-DNQ-Q]
02 | 02 | 02 [DNQ-DNQ-Q-Q-?]
03 | 03 | 02 [DNQ-DNQ-Q-Q-Q]
04 | 04 | 01 [DNQ-Q-Q-Q-Q]
05 | 02 | 03 [DNQ-DNQ-Q-DNQ-Q]
06 | 04 | 01 [DNQ-Q-Q-Q-Q]
07 | 04 | 01 [Q-Q-Q-Q-DNQ] (perfect streak got ruined last year! drama.gif)
08 | 03 | 02 [DNQ-Q-DNQ-Q-Q]
09 | 02 | 03 [DNQ-DNQ-DNQ-Q-Q]
10 | 01 | 04 [DNQ-Q-DNQ-DNQ-DNQ]

So the fourth, sixth and seventh tend to be my best months of the year (in fact, I scored my best result to date in the seventh contest of 2013). The tenth is definitely my worst, not had a qualifier in the tenth contest of the year since 2013!

I'm not 100% certain but the winter contests (sorta 9th, 10th and 1st) seem to do us pretty well. However our summer months seem pretty shocking

I've always lowkey kept track of this.

Notably the only number I've never failed to qualify in (and indeed for the last four (!) years I've been top 10 in that month) is the fourth contest of the year. Expect me to come out all guns blazing that month even if I am starting off the year pretty terribly JUST for that reason.

On the other end of the spectrum I've only ever once qualified in the seventh contest of the year and even then I was sure I was out with Stellar. But at least I've broken that curse now.

As the other months are all completely mixed now I haven't kept as much track although I had never failed in the sixth contest of the year until I sabotaged myself with Jiriki either.

Not too interesting due to the fact I've not entered all that many times, but here we go ;o

100% for February contests even in my floppy 2012 days, let's hope that can keep up! I do somewhat keep tabs, August and January have always seemed like unlucky months, it's always January when the unexpected ones come as well sad.gif

6 DNQ-DNQ-

So I still haven't qualified in a 2, 5, or 6. Too early to really make any patterns beyond that.

* is from 64, which ended up being OBF but statistically I shouldn't have qualified.

I always seem to do well at the start and end of the year but flop in the middle. The last two times I had a run of DNQs were both in contests ending in 6 and 7 mellow.gif (86-87 and 66-67, and also I had a single DNQ between those in 78)

Posting in this thread now (also comparing positions) as I realised this is the first time I've not slayed in a contest ending in 8.

09) 02/02 | 26 ● 14
10) 01/02 | DNQ ● 02

A bit all over the place at the moment laugh.gif but 100% qualifying in 6/10 months so far.

21/25 qualifiers = 84%!

- The third contest of the year just about appears to be my worst and the first is the best!
- I love the DNQ sandwich with 6th place bread that has happened for the second contest of the year.
- Bring on 104 as I do seem to perform decently for the fourth contest of the year.

pressure’s on once again. 3rd contest has progressively gotten worse so expecting to be struck by the 2016 50th anniversary curse next year

Posted by: Iz~ May 24 2019, 02:48 AM

The others aren't worth mentioning as they all have DNQs and in-out patterns, but there is something up with me and the fourth contest of the year, as I said earlier in this thread two years ago, but it's only gotten MORE pronounced since that happened:

23rd - 6th - 9th - 9th - 9th - 13th - 2nd - 2nd

Almost always my best or second-best result of the year, and the triple 9th, and now double silver, looks so pretty.

I reckon it's because if I don't have a hit for the year yet, and I often don't from the first three, I put a bit of work into finding one for that contest. But still.

Doing great in 1s, 8s and 9s, not so great in 4s, 5s, and 6s! (Didn't add positions but my top 10s are in bold)

* is from 64, which ended up being OBF but statistically I shouldn't have qualified.

statistically speaking we always seem to do better in the first half of the year and we get hit hard by the summer slump (and no top 20s at all in the ninth contest either)

08: 36 - 30 - XX - XX
09: 35 - 08 - 20 - 32
10: 31 - 38 - 40 - 10


So May's have been bad historically, time to right this wrong!

Posted by: Chez Wombat May 24 2019, 06:26 PM

The second contest of the year still remains the one month I've never DNQ'd in and maintains my constant high points there since getting 2nd this year! The rest is more mixed, but August has got a bit better since I last did this and January remains a pretty dark point D:
