Don't you guys think I'll have tortured you enough by the time the #1 album is unveiled?

Anonymous voting is for crybabies and illegal immigrants.

I'd rather just see the list - I don't want to have to try and guess for 15 pages before the answer is revealed. But if more people think the guessing will be fun, then go for it. I'll live.

I'm more likely to say "Oh hey, So-and-So likes that album, too! I had no idea!" rather than "Jesus, What'sHerButt has the worst taste in music I've ever seen."

Okay fine then don't use the anonymous idea. I just thought it was a decent idea that intedomine suggested. But it's your competition.

And besides, I just thought it would be fun guessing some not so obvious lists. So I don't understand the crybaby comment. It's not like we are ashamed of our own lists, lol. At least I'm not.

It's not a bad idea. My issue is that it'll drag things out to nearly absurd levels. Plus...what Cori just said.

I'm envisioning some similarly hilarious reactions and commentary. Plus, more outsiders will be attracted to the thread if it appears to be busy.
Oh my! It's a pity I missed that thread when it was actual.


I still don't know exactly what the total list was, but the comments were hilarious.

Okay, I'm confused (surprise, surprise) - ElMel, you said something about "anonymous voting" that threw me off. What's the voting aspect?

I assumed we were talking about you posting each person's list without the name attached and we guessed whose it was, at the same time you were releasing the final results one album at a time.

Or am I missing a piece and there's going to be some sort of voting involved?

That is my understanding too.

Yeah, so when he said the "anonymous voting is for crybabies," I didn't think that was directed at you, I thought he was talking about something else completely.

Damn, I've just been confused through this whole thread, haven't I?

I think we are talking about 2 different things.

I was suggesting what intedomine suggested. Simply post everyone's lists without the names. And we guess which is who's just for fun.

Don't worry. I'm confused too!


Either way, this will be fun. Damn, now I have to finish this list!

I think ElMel should pick who he thinks has the best list and that person gets a prize. Like a personally embroidered bathrobe or somethin'.

He'd probably give it to himself, because he obviously has the best music taste

The voting aspect is putting together your own lists for future tallying. I personally believe that adding a guessing game onto a thread that's already going to go on for an entire day is pushing things a bit too far, so that's why I'm not in favor of it.

And yes, the person whose list has the highest number of albums from my own will receive a prize of some kind, likely of dubious quality.

... you mean the lists we already submitted? The "future tallying" is throwing me off.


.... or should I just shut up, go away and just wait to see what happens?

You give me the lists. I give them points based on their placement. I tally up the points and, based on the sum, the album will be given its spot in the top 100, or not at all, if the sum is negligible.
