As you can see above, the poll runs till 01 Feb 2014, XX:34 and you may select up to 5 songs.
I am thinking that this could be a recurring feature. To begin with, I have chosen 20 songs that have been discussed recently in the forum, or are in the top of RYM's 2014 chart. But after this test, I'm thinking that the top 10 (based on the results) and 10 new songs (based on nominations in the current thread and songs from new albums on otisredding's Mega-Critic Chart) will form every following chart.
During this test week, we could first of all discuss if is this a good idea. Does it sound like fun? Do we have time for this, given all other polls we have? I think it would be great way to discover new music and it would be great if a chart like this could live on for a very long time. Perhaps it could become a popular feature and recruit new forum members. But I am aware that the most games are far most popular at the beginning and then the popularity usually fade out rather quickly.
If we think it is a good idea, we could also discuss the following:
- Are others willing to take over and set up new voting threads? It could be a circulating job.
- Should it be a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly feature?
- 20 options/songs is the maximum. Is this good, or is it too many?
- My suggestion that 10 songs move on to the next round, is it good, too few or too many?
- How many songs should we be allowed to vote for? I chose 5 for the test. Should it be higher?
- Should we include songs from new albums on otisredding's Mega-Critic Chart? Should they have priority over nominations from members?
- Should the first nominations or a random selection of nominations be included in the next voting round? I suggest that if a song is nominated by two people it always gets priority.
- How old songs should be allowed for nominations?
- Should nominations of songs that have already been in a voting round be allowed?
- How do we solve ties at 10th place? My suggestion here would be to include or exclude all of them depending on if they have x votes or more, where x is determined from the voting turnout of the test week.
- What should happen if there aren't 10 nominated songs?
Listen to the songs!
