DTF Top 50 Albums Tracker Thread v2 - Now With Composite Rankings!

(1/73) > >>

Big Hath:
The purpose of this thread is to keep a running archive of past top 50 threads, notify current and soon to be thread starters of their turn, and to organize future interested participants.  Having three participants active at any one time seems to be the best way to go about it.  For those new to the idea of top 50 threads, it is simple - post your top 50 albums (preferably in some ranked order) and tell us why each album makes the list.  Make updates every day or so and try to finish in a respectable amount of time to keep things moving.  If you are interested, please post here and I will add you to the waiting list.

The Database

In addition to keeping the waiting list up to date, I have also I taken all of the top 50 lists that have been posted thus far and listed every selection in a spreadsheet including Album, Artist, Year of Release, and Forum User.  I also assigned points to each User's list based on their album ranking.  Their top ranked album received 50 points, 2nd ranked got 49 and so on.  If more than 50 albums were listed, the extra albums each received 1 point as if it were ranked 50th. (if you choose not to rank your album list, there isn't really a way for me to include your list in the database, sorry)

Some artists and their various projects have been combined due to one person being the primary driving force such as: Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson/No-Man/Bass Communion, Devin Townsend solo projects/Strapping Young Lad, Arjen Lucassen/Ayreon/Star One, etc

The database is an excel spreadsheet at the moment, but I have placed some of the info in a google doc that can be accessed here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Av7hhWXD5VkadEtTOTNyN0ZfdTZaWWF3N3BjOFROeGc

Zook:
You can put me down in the "may go in the future" list.

Scorpion:
Like I said, I'd be ready to go if the people in front me aren't available. Not trying to pressure anyone, just trying to keep this going.

DebraKadabra:
Yeeeaaahh... I'm gonna be in the "May go in the future" list for a while - still working on it though. :)

?:
You can move my name to the "may go in the future" list.
