I just assumed we'd see all the individual lists and then a final ranking of the albums as picked by the participants via their own lists.

No, I was going to post one album at a time over the course of an entire day with all of the information tacked onto the final post.

Huh. I guess I don't see what your plan is. Like one post a day until we have 50 albums? Or just 50 separate posts listing the albums throughout the day, and then the final list at the end?

I don't know why I'm having such a hard time visualizing this!

He's referring to this real fucking hilarious thread in EYKIW a while back, I think.

I wouldn't mind.

I don't know what that is, so never mind, I guess.

Yep.

I'm envisioning some similarly hilarious reactions and commentary. Plus, more outsiders will be attracted to the thread if it appears to be busy.

Okay, I didn't get why it was so full of hilarity until I randomly jumped further into the thread, and now I am full of lulz.

So really, now. What's your plan for listing the lists and then the final tally?

Almost identical to that thread. One album at a time, and then the final post will contain the full list, contributors, and their lists.

( and perhaps Khan can be so kind as to add it to the original post when the festivities have concluded)

Ah, I see. And will you be taking breaks for pooping and foosball?

(I only skimmed the thread and those were the two excuses he gave for the long pauses between posts. I'm sure there were other, exciting reasons as well.)

(Well, I guess he didn't claim to actually be pooping. That was only speculation.)

No, I'm just going to sit there and stare at the wall while you guys eat each other alive.

Believe me, I have my work cut out for me just to add up the points to make the final list. Every list has to be reordered so it looks like so:

Quote:
Artist (with "The"s removed) - Album (insert point total)
The average list when it's sent to me looks like so:

Quote:
1. Artist - Album
or

Quote:
1. Album - Artist
The reason for reordering is that every list will be run through an alphabetizer so I can add up each album's totals more easily. However, if it starts Album - Artist or has a number at the beginning, it won't be alphabetized properly. Similarly, a " : " is ordered differently than a " - " would be, so there cannot be any colons, which I've already seen on at least two lists.

Basically, it's a pain in the ass.
