:lol

I actually really like Bonnie the Cat.
Yeah that song is awesome. What the hell Reaper

I just gave it another listen, yup don't like it, the only redeeming factor is Gavin Harrison's drum work. I'm generally a fan of most PT but songs that are a miss for me are a huge miss.

Can't believe Porcupine Tree made it to the end... so many of those other bands were so much better than them.

Good call.  Those should probably all be deleted.  But still, not that this thread is bad or anything, but we never archive P/S threads.

I'm not really sure why there's some apparent exclusion against P/S archiving eligibility. I think a thread's own merits should dictate it's archivability not pretense. Also a lot of folks had a really good time following this thing and it'd just be nice to see all that love recognized by having it up there with other very-well received threads.

And I mean, not that there's anything wrong with this one, but it's just a bunch of random bands you picked to have people vote on (and you left off a bunch of good ones, too, by the way).  So why is it special enough to archive?

Knowledge is power:

actually bosk, your wrong. We picked the band, and this is easily the most well put together poll I've ever seen on DTF. The fact that a lot of people paid no attention to it until later rounds, does not change the fact that he gave us the choice to submit five bands to be voted upon. They weren't random at all.

Thanks a bunch. It's feels awesome to see others showing support so I won't seem like some raving lunatic bent on getting his way.

Sorry but I don't see how this was that hard to put together or worth archiving.

edit: That sounded mean, I don't mean that I don't appreciate it, I really do, it's a good survivor but for archiving I don't think so.

Sorry dude. Never meant to get an innocent bystander harmed.

edit: That sounded mean, I don't mean that I don't appreciate it, I really do, it's a good survivor but for archiving I don't think so.

I've actually spent between 15 and 20 hours total time between reading others' posts, strategizing format ideas, tabulating individual heat results, and gone to excruciating lengths including quadruple- and even quintuple-checking every heat's results-even the first two which had rosters of 106 and 76 bands respectively. My usual method was to look for the highest numbers first for bands like PT, Opeth, Rush, etc. and then work my way down so I could start with a ranked list and then I'd check the alphabetized results in the poll thread against my newly-typed Office document and then check the ranked list in the Office document against the alphabetized list in the poll thread. I lost my place a couple times during one heat's tabulation and may have checked a total of seven times.

Despite all the format-bashing I've witnessed throughout this series I haven't seen one person gripe about an error in tabulation which should bode well for my efforts.

I just don't get all the objections to archiving this thing as it was ridiculously popular if you take into account that the only other threads to ever get nearly 100 different people checking them out the first day they're posted are probably ones related to major DT news such as new album releases.

Btw bf, I appreciate the effort you put into this and don't see why the hell so many people are against archiving, as if it would be wrong or something ???

I'll start a poll on whether or not this should be archived, and then that can be archived too :neverusethis:

Are you sure you're thinking of Rush? Like...THE Rush?
Rush has released only 3 weak albums. None of them were consecutive.

It's interesting how vocal the Rush fans are (and I am a huge one myself, so not bashing Rush fans).  If the result had been opposite, with PF losing to Rush, I don't think we'd have seen the long line of defiant Floydian defenders we've seen from the Rush camp.  Not that I'm surprised, really, since Rush fans are often extremely fanatical, but it's still a curious phenomenon.

Yeah, those Rush fans need to stop giving the rest of us a bad name, with all of their sobbing and whatnot. :P :biggrin:

Cool to see Floyd win.  Once my top 3 favorite bands all got to the final four, I would have been happy with seeing any of them win. :)

  • Check out the Zappa Discography thread!
As I posted in the What are you listening to right now Thread, today is Pink Floyd day.

I've started with A Momentary Lapse of reason, followed by The Division Bell.
Then I started from the top with The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets, Soundtrack from the Film More and now moving to Ummagumma.
