I think it's really weird doing this now considering it was just done.

So what if it was just done? There were some people who discovered it too late and expressed that they wished they had participated, if I recall correctly. Also, the OP is giving us time till March, so maybe there will be more new people interested.

One other question: why can first quarter albums from this year not be counted? I see numerous releases coming up I'd want to include in my list.

I know, there's releases I might like to include in my list too. But this is to make sure that no one will want to correct lists that they posted before "some album that now I want to include is released"
And because an album released in March 15, for example, would be in disadvantage to another album released in January or February.

I'm not trying to speak for the OP but my understanding of this rule is that it tries to ensure that new album hysteria doesn't factor into an all-time list. When REM's Accelerate came out, I was crazy about it and considered it album of the year. But in a couple of months, I was able to review it more fairly and realized that it's good but there are better albums.

^But then people that posted their lists in January would want to correct their lists to add albuns released in Mar/Feb and then until I correct every list we would be ending April, and this thread would go on forever or die cause the definitive list would never get done.
And even if I allow people to do it like you're saying, you'd just be losing spots in your list, cause albuns released in March probably wouldn't have enough points to even make the definitive list.
I'm trying to make things easier or this thread will become a mess. And threads that become a mess are no good.

I guess I'm in, probably won't give a list for a couple of months though

I wonder if this will be different at all from the top 100...

So anyway, I'm not doing this again. Just did it, don't feel the need to do it again a few weeks later. Please come back in a year or two.

We really don't need to do this again. Besides, we already know what will win.
