Thanks for these stats, Moonbeam. As your highest correlated forumer, I couldn’t be happier.
Not surprising thanks to your recommendations!

I don't appear in anybody's top 10. :lol: But I'm in your top 20 (at number 20), second only to keater, on whose list I'm 19th. :mrgreen:

By the way, if anybody is interested, I've learned how to protect ranges in online spreadsheets, so I finally feel comfortable starting a Google Sheet to generate user-user correlations based on song ratings from AM. The idea would be to create a big Google sheet with the songs listed on AM, and allow users to enter ratings in a protected column. Would anybody be interested in this?

This could be something for future AM site work as well, don't you think?

If you want I can send you a spreadsheet with some background info, that could also be used for interesting correlation analyses, for example if a person prefers male or female artists, bands or solo artists, etc.

I've used the spreadsheet to come up with correlations based on the points awarded. Here are the top 10 users based on correlation for all participants:
So everyone should go to Arcadefire for recommendations, apparently!

Seemed like almost everyone's #1

I suspect that's because Arcadefire said in the list thread that he took the AM list and rearranged it based upon how he felt about the artist, and we're all bound to have a lot of acclaimed artists on our lists. We could go to him for recommendations, but I'm guessing we'd all know most of the artists. ;)

Thanks for the correlations, Moonbeam! Some people in my top 10 that I would have expected, and others that came as a complete surprise.

I'm so sorry ArcadeFire, it must feel awful to get a comment like this, but I have to say that when someone rearranges the AM list a bit, without including any lesser acclaimed artists, it just makes the overall poll results a bit less exciting.

And I'm sorry, too. I certainly didn't mean any offense by it, ArcadeFire. (I would hope that anyone who has known me over my many years on this site would know that.) I will keep my mouth shut from now on.

Yes! It would make it easier than having to collate multiple different spreadsheets.

:character-cookiemonster:
I accept responsibility for the fact that my absence from this poll probably cost them a top 20 position :mrgreen: :angry-banghead:
I bear some of the blame, too. I am still finalizing a (belated and non-counting) list but it looks like they would probably have been between 110-120 for me so that might have bolstered them a bit.
