Holy damn, I just caught up with this thread.

1. It doesn't matter if you heard "hundreds of records" or less than 15. Follow the fucking rules.

2. 15>14>13>12>11>10>9>8>7>6>5>4>3>2>1. If the order in which you rank albums and the order in which you attribute points don't match, either you suck at arithmetic or you suck at basic human courtesy. Pick one.

3. Your pet album doesn't get a bronze medal if it finishes higher because of your strategic voting. Grow up.

Haha this thread.

Seriously I don't get it. Why do people have to criticize the way people chose to listen to music?

Just a heads up that my list will probably come out on Christmas day. If not, early the week after

Rules change. They did for desert island because people were to lazy to upload their lists, or didn't feel like hunting down an MP3 of a song they love enough to put onto their list.

Has anyone got a logical reason not to have prorated lists? Is it because maths are hard? Or just because "these are the rules because they were last year and fuck you."?

Anyway, I'm done with any sort of stupid competition on interference because of interference's aversion to change unless it's toward laziness.

You're throwing a fit because you can't participate the way you want to. Plenty of people pleasantly come in to this thread year after year and say, "I didn't listen to enough albums to feel comfortable ranking them, but here's my favorites from the year," and we all move on.

You come in here and say, "I didn't listen to enough albums to make a fifteen album list that I actually like. Change the rules so I can participate anyways! You bunch of losers with no lives!"

Yes. I didn't feel like prorating to 60% just because you don't listen to that many new albums. The rules have stayed consistent because they make it very easy to understand how the voting happened and how the results ended up the way they were.

Now, I don't judge you at all for not listening to a bunch of new albums! I don't think anyone here is. You're taking this very personally. It's just not really the sort of thing that's meant for people who didn't listen to a lot of new music last year. And you asking why, having it explained to you, and then getting simultaneously defensive and accusatory makes you look much more childish than you think we are being.

More like the rules we've used for several years.

That's the problem right there. This is not a freaking competition. It's an aggregation of different lists. One that uses the same parameters so that they can be comparable. I'm not sure it's that hard to understand.

My list is going to punch your list right in the stomach, gump.

^^^^^

It's not like anyone's list is more skillfully crafted than the others. Nobody participating wins anything. The list is either within the parameters or it's not. If it's not, it's useful to discourse in the thread, as long as the person that posted it isn't throwing a fit.
