I'd be interested in doing both. And then do a compare and contrast of the results. I think that'd be interesting.

But yeah, sad that Mr. V and Bonnie didn't get their lists in. I had them ranked 5th and 6th respectively.

I agree. That way, everyone will get to compete in some form or another, even if they can't be on the forum, and it takes some of the stress away from putting the lists together at the last minute when they're not the full criteria for the final results. If it's a coda to the tournament, it's just a fun supplemental thing that takes a couple minutes.

I think we can all agree that the results of voting and ranking would likely be radically different, so why not do both and possibly have a couple of winners?

Before Peef submitted his list, there was a tie coming up. Instead, 10 points separate the next four participants. Which is, what, a little over half a list? Seriously, every list counts.

You can perhaps surmise from the amount of top 5 placements Joey had that his list was quite polarizing. He had a big run at the end too that brought him up several spots.

I'm one of the ones who had him higher.

Surprised to see a last place vote for him with all those great songs.

I was thinking the same thing. It's really interesting to see the lists that someone ranks last.

Interesting thought. Given the variables involved, the results would definitely be much different

Not saying I voted Joey last or even low, but the way I judged these was not on quality of songs but rather on theme and originality. I thought djerdap's list has both of those things going for it. I wish it would have placed higher.

A tournament format always is going to have some non consensus winner. It just depends on how things go. If a list lost, however, that probably indicates it wouldn't win it all obviously. So, at the end of the day, you're going to still have a deserving winner. Or you can just not bother watching anymore sports if that is your complaint. I remember the poll days I remember the problems. I've suggested a few alternatives to help assist those problems, such as making sure that only those who are participating in the competition, or those pre approved by the contest runner, to vote in the polls. The reason I love the poll so much, is because it really put more emphasis on actually listen to the lists in a timely fashion, this format has always been too loose.

Imo, of course.

Everyone kinda does this differently, but I've always tried to stick with the original theme: What would I want to be stuck with on a desert island?

Bonnie would have been my 3rd favorite.
