Question, now that they've been declared eligible: how do I denote them on the albums spreadsheet? I'm gonna make a project of that (between this, the UCR lists, the Radio X lists, and the Masterpiece Reviews, I have my work cut out for me), and should I just put a "1" for each entry (like the unranked lists) or should I put the year that they're representing?

"1" is what I need. Please post them as separate lists. Thanks!
