Here it is the new version of the Rank the Tracks game. I named this version "Open 24/7" because my intention is keeping it open for a permanent update at least during the whole 2017. So you can vote for every album of the previous versions hosted by BleuPanda and babydoll. With a difference, while both BleuPanda and babydoll preferred to add the votes on the current threads and not on past threads I ask you to vote on the thread of the particular album you are voting for. I don't mind to see old threads being bumped (I hope Henrik won't mind too) because doing the recount of votes with the album's votes mixed on different threads has been truly a nightmare for me.
These are the features included on the results thread on the Open 24/7 edition of the Rank the Tracks game:
a) Album cover art.
b) Artist, title and year of release.
c) Updated ranking including position and points for every song, like in previous editions. With one big difference: this time there will be no ties. In case of two songs with the same points the song with a higher individual position will get the top position (example: "Pledging My Time" and "Obviously 5 Believers" ended with the same points but the latter was #3 on Gillingham list while the higher position for the former was #7 on ordinaryperson list). If this rule is not enough to break the tie I will check the second (or third) higher individual position (example: "In God's Country" and "Red Hill Mining Town" had the same points, both had a #2 position but "Red Hill Mining Town" was #3 on two lists while "In God's Country" was #3 in one list).
d) Link to the voting thread. As I told before I prefer that you vote on the thread of the actual album you are voting for. The links will make it easier for you (and for me).
e) Number of voters for every album, including the name of the voters. So far the range goes from 4 ("In the Wee Small Hours") to 33 ("Revolver").
f) Biggest fans of every song, including the highest position, so you can check your personal favourites and your "solitary pleasures" (the songs only loved by you).
g) Correlation with critics, as I was doing on the previous editions. Of course the correlation may change with the new updates.
h) Spotify playlist with the songs reordered according to our rankings.
Many thanks BleuPanda for your wonderful idea!!BleuPanda wrote:The basic idea is to rank the tracks off the album each week to see how each track compares to each other. It's an excuse to go back to classic albums and a way to gauge the best and worst tracks of the most acclaimed albums. Simply rank all the tracks from your favorite to your least.
