My guess was even more impressive since I had to work in the confines of Peef's deluded mind.

May affect how I finish my list.

Shit. I missed that rule. I'll edit mine tomorrow.

I guess I've allowed it this time. I hate it and think it's cheating the system but I don't feel like putting forth the effort of arguing over it.

Mikal, you're not the only one to do this. I think four lists have ten albums (three plus the one where five albums got "zero" votes).

l DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO HERE, GUYS.

I wasn't trying to get anyone in trouble, but obviously if you list less albums, you're weighting the ones you did pick heavier than everyone else's. So it's going to skew the results.

Sorry, Peef.

Sure, that math stuff. But whatever. It's just a stupid fucking list.

If Laz had been paying attention, he'd have realized that I pointed this out yesterday

Were you listening to the National at the time? Then that insight is NULL & VOID.

Definitely living in a National-free zone over here at the time.

Sorry, Peef.
If you're concerned about the weights, you could just use a proportion of the points for ten albums or whatever, so basically you would have 67 points to spread out over 10 rather than 100 over 15.

It's only fair. People who do 10 instead of 15 are 2/3rds of a person.

I don't see the big deal. Not everyone can listen to nine million albums a year. I'll have my list on the 5th my time, so 4th for most of y'all.

No one's calling into question whether only rating ten is valid, it's whether a person ranking ten albums should get the same number of points to work with. By default, if they get the same number, there are less albums they're giving less points to and more albums they're giving more points to, so it's ever so slightly skewed.

If you guys want me to put 5 more albums on my list, I'm still not including The National.

I'm going to use a flame thrower on anyone who doesn't include 15.
