Those who have done this before… How hard was it for you to come up with 50 good albums? I just started a list of albums that I really really like last night, and can only get up to about 40 or so. I also don't want to oversaturate my list with a whole bunch of the same genre, because I like so many albums from different artist in different genres.

inb4 someone makes a comment about my Top 125  :biggrin:

 Well I would imagine that I missed several, since I whipped it up in about five minutes time. I'll probably end up with the top 200. My problem is, I just looked through my iTunes folders, and a lot of my music from my old computer didn't copy over, so… I also was trying to limit myself I don't want to put every single rush album on there, how are every single Genesis album or every single dream theater album...

50 was easy. It was just a matter of deciding what makes it into positions 35-50 and what 20 or so albums didn't quite make the cut.

i had around 80 albums that got onto my rankings list when i first went through my library. did honorable mentions for a good number of the ones that didn't make my list.

If I were to do a top 50 classical works thread, would I violate this? I'm not counting down albums...

you can start any kind of thread you want (so long as you don't violate DTF rules).  I just wouldn't add anything to the database I am keeping unless it were your official top 50 albums list.

No I would expect this to be added ;-)

900th post.  I said to myself if I make it to 900 here, I would throw my hat to the ring in this sort of thing.  Well, I want to do a Top 50 albums thread. 

Ideally, I want to start the thread on my 1000th post.  I don't know how long that would take me to get to 1,000.  Maybe a few months or so.  However, I might as well put myself in the queue, right now.  So, where do I sign up?

Did he now? I'll check


EDIT: Nope, he did not. I could start pretty soon I suppose, but I don't want to post three albums and then leave for a week typing out the rest. Give me a week or two and I'll have everything typed out.

Hey, could you put me on the waiting list? I'm not sure how long these take approximately (seem to range from a few months to a couple of years), but I'd be ready in a few months probably.

I have a bit more of free time now, not enough to run a roulette yet, but I can finally start my new top 50 - just give me a week or so to start with write-ups.

My list is done by the way, so I think Elite is next? I believe the only active ones now are Sacul and Fluffy (he's almost done though).

There are no active top list threads at the moment so what are you waiting for? :P (to end the roulette probably)
I'm planning on doing something at the end of the february (after final exams). I said I'll make one last summer but I thought it suck because it's not very diverse. But it's my list, I can put anything I want on it, right :lol

What, my list? By "it's done" I meant it's over. I thought you knew I did one  :lol. If I misunderstood and you're just bumping to get the next person to start their top 50, I agree, there's one hell of a waiting list but no one is actually ready for one it seems.

That list doesn't mean anything anymore, I think :P there used to be limit of one list at the time but I guess then there were more people.
@Train Of Naught, excuse me, I had a long day :lol I followed your list but it somehow slipped my mind.

Wouldn't it be too soon? :P

I'll do another one myself, but in 2-3 years, or whenever my list changes dramatically.

it's a kind-of top 50 in the sense that i'm ranking the albums i got last year from worst to best, actually  :lol

there's only like a 2 album overlap with my previous top 50 list there.

also i dunno how many i'll do. the final count is like, a little short of 70. i might do a top 25, a top 50, or just all of them.

All right, I made it past the 990 mark in posts.  Probably will make it to 1000, sometime, this month, don't know when exactly, so I probably want to start my Top 50 thread soon in like a few weeks.  Is that all right?

Hi, may I please be included in this?
I've been drinking beer since I was 18 and dabbled since I was 16. I have at least 500 beer bottles in my collection and love the fancy shit though my wallet doesn't. I'll drink liquor not even five times a year including shots or mixed drinks. Jack Daniels and Coke is an easy go-to for me. Very smooth nads candy sweet.
