Yeah I don't get this future tallying business either. I thought we were talking about you posting everyone's lists as they are submitted to you (but not including anyone's names) and then a final list.

Yes, and I already said I didn't want to do that. What am I missing here?

Got it. That's what I assumed was going to happen. I'll just stop trying to read into every other sentence you type.

Okay that's fine if you don't want to do that. I just don't understand why you said it would prolong things. It's not like you have to wait until everyone's lists have been guessed correctly before posting the final list! Whoever wants to guess can guess, otherwise just wait for the final list to be posted. That's my understanding of intedomine's suggestion.

Unless like I said earlier, we are talking about 2 different things.

Oh, well, like Cori said, if it took people pages to successfully guess a person's list, that would extend the thread greatly. I'm usually not against upping my post count, but it would be like a game thread or something, and that's not quite what I had in mind.

It would be a clever comprise had people been more uncomfortable with sharing their lists, but that's not the case.

Unless ElMel also wants to be like The Scientist, I'd rather prefer if first the Top 100 is posted. Then, kinda as an appendix, individual lists can be posted. Don't move the focus on the individual lists (which will happen if you post those first), but on the Top 100.

I agree.

You guys will just have to see what I have cooked up. When everything is wrapped up, the results will be added to the first post for ease of viewing, along with the individual contributions. But I want to get a little extra mileage out of that if I can.

But, unlike The Scientist's countdown, I'll make sure each entry is worth waiting for.

BTW, the thread will most likely be started on Thursday. People will still be sending in lists on Tuesday, so I'll have to work out the results on Wednesday. Nobody is ever here on Fridays, so it all works out.

Anonymity might be the way to go, in case some folk get sensitive about their taste. It might make it a wee bit of fun guessing who's list is who's.
But looks like I'm too late.

I'll see a Gin Blossoms album and know it can only be intedomine or something.

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.

I don't want to make the mistake of disliking the wrong person because of their poor music tastes. Come on now, I'm classy like that.
it's make like a tree and leave, you idiot! you sound like a damn fool when you say it wrong!
