Re: Albums of 2012

The new Anaïs Mitchell is very enjoyable, but a bit too samey to be great. The other voices and the concept really saved Hadestown from this problem but Young Man in America doesn't have those things.

Re: Welcome!, or, what can I do to help?

It would be best if you could copy all the lists into one single topic for every year. That way all links on acclaimedmusic.net can point to one topic on these boards; the links to the old forum will be useless in the future so we don't need those. Oh, and please post them in the EOY archives forum....

Re: Welcome!, or, what can I do to help?

If you have a look at the "Films.." section, you can see how I did it with the film poll. That's probably the ideal option, because people will tend to have put quite a lot of work into the polls. For the older polls where there is less layout I'd say you can simply copy the text.

The html layout we used on the old boards does not work on these new boards for security purposes, so you will have to convert some of the layout.

While several people have already helped out a ton (thanks, Zorg, Listy, nicolas, Gillingham, Moonbeam--hope I'm not forgetting anyone here) there is still some work to be done.
