AMF 90's poll : instructions and links

I'm happy to open the second 90s poll (the first was held in 2007)

As you probably read, the rules have slightly changed.

1. (NEW) Each month we will nominate 15 albums and 15 songs from a given year according to the following schedule :

feb : 1990

april : 1992
may : 1993
june : 1994
july : 1995
august : 1996
september : 1997
october : 1998
november : 1999
december : all-years final round


2. You will have to submit your lists in the forum. Lists must be ranked and must include at least 5 albums/songs.

3. (NEW) only the top 15 albums will be given points. The scoring is as follows:

1. 50
2. 40
3. 30

8. 8

4. (NEW) 15 albums and songs will advance to the next round, including at least two non-UK/US albums/songs with a minimum of 2 votes, of which at least one is not in English. A song/album must appear at least in 2 different ballots to be eligible for the second round.

5. No compilations will be allowed.

6. The standard source for dating albums and song is Rate Your Music.
