Fuck this is always a challenge for me. Especially since I don't come around to my yearly favourites after months and it's too late to make a decision
But oh shit, I like this new points system

Motivation for the new scoring system:
Whenever I read articles or listen to pods/interviews with people struggling to rank things, it’s often because they usually don’t like the big drop-offs or tiers that they see in the quality of whatever they’re ranking. It’s still not super accurate, but it makes sense to appropriate points rather than rankings to relieve this issue.
Also, inspired by this https://electology.org/score-voting
It might end in disaster, but I wouldn’t mind it for government elections
are you compiling all the points together yourself?
Yeah, but Jom wrote up the instructions and is gonna help clean up the entries. It’s always a group effort
I wish you guys the best of luck compiling all of the information together
mac has the technical knowledge and experience; I just have the patience to fix all the screwed-up entries. Rather than waiting on people to fix them, I'll just get them all at the end so mac is working with as clean of data as he can.
are you in contect with mx at all?

nobody ever listens to me when I say it but I'll say it for the millionth time:
stop using https links since sput hates those. Use a regular www link and it'll work fine.
Digging: Pale - EP

Use a regular www link and it'll work fine

Digging: Chelsea Grin - Eternal Nightmare

Question: If you choose to give all your albums 10 points, is your ranking irrelevant, or are both the rankings and the point values themselves being taken into account?
Digging: Deafheaven - Sunbather
disgusting fucking list as always snide, well done
>> Question: If you choose to give all your albums 10 points, is your ranking irrelevant, or are both the rankings and the point values themselves being taken into account?
"disqualified due to improper formatting, best of luck for next year tho ^"
While I appreciate the innovation, I don't like the new points system. I'd rather just rank.
Digging: CHVRCHES - Love Is Dead
@divaman living up to your name lol.
Jom didn’t mention it in his instructions, but if someone forgets to give scores, I’ll assign default values to the ranks I.e your highest rank will have more points than your lowest ranked album
I'm on the same page as Divaman. While in theory the points system could help lesser-known albums I can't help but feel the opposite will happen and more popular albums will just snuff others out even more.
I'm going to do it the way everyone else is this year, but thanks for the option macman. I'm just saying that for the future, I prefer the straight ranking system. (In my case, it won't make that much of a difference anyway, as I'm pretty sure only two of the albums I'm including in my Top Ten will have much chance to be included in the site's Top 50).
Done and done!
Digging: Jaye Jayle - No Trail and Other Unholy Paths
>> Jom didn’t mention it in his instructions
... people who don't follow them aren't getting special treatment.
Why's everybody under the gun to get this done ASAP? You have all week! Go listen to more records.
I’m at the mercy of what clears the jom filter 😬
eh, few if any of the albums in my top 50 are going to be on here.
'disqualified due to improper formatting, best of luck for next year tho'
Yes, you have to submit a band and album not a steaming pile of unicorn diarrhea.
"Go listen to more records"
thanks for promoting pole younger, could use a link in the end tho
Fixed the links so you can click on them directly now.

Kompys: you never confirmed your e-mail, so you were stuck in account limbo. You should be all set to post now. Thanks!
>> Are we still doing that user-contribution blurb thing from last year? Was cool to take part in.
Yes, that will still be a thing!
Ten LPs? Can the userbase count that high? You're asking a lot, Jom.

Am I, hypothetically, allowed to award more points to an album lower in the ranking than an album with fewer points?
I assume so yes Boney
someone has already tried tactical voting Boney, noticed that
i got tactical with it, that ain't my actual ranking
