Best Nick Album - A New System

Discussion in 'General' started by Travellerman, Oct 19, 2008.

    Travellerman Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    I found this on another forum and thought it might be interesting to give it a go here.

    Each album starts with 10 points, on each subsequent post you must add 1 point to ONE ALBUM only (your favourite of those left) and take 1 point from ONE ALBUM only (your least favourite).

    When an album reaches 0 points it is erased from the running. If you are the next person after an album reaches 0 you cannot add a point back onto this album and it must remain on 0 for the rest of the thread.

    Indicate which album you have added a point to and which you have subtracted one from in bold (see below)

    Last album standing is the winner!

    Hope that's understandable!! [​IMG]

    Question: is the ultimate aim of this to end up with ONE top album? Because I am wondering if there are enough people to reduce any to 0. Or is it just seeing which have the most votes?

    a bit confused

    I'm not sure yet :D but I'm curious as to where other Störmcockers tastes lay, and what's left standing / on top...

    Does this mean that currently Seed, DL, BS & MFB are tying for 1st place, or is Seed out in front and TI is bringing up the rear?!

    Yours
    not sure if confused or not!

    well it means effectilvely

    seed has had a net two votes in favour if it being the best
    miracles a net of one
    instrumental and bloodsongs a net of 1 vote as least favourite
    and treasure island 2 votes as it being the worst..

    but of course its all relative....

    seed is on plus 2, but that could (its not but it could) be 5 people voting it the best, and 3 people voting it the worst...

    the likelehood is that without a massive amount of people they are all going to end up on between 7 and 13 but we shall see.. :D

    the other problem is that because the vote is visible people get personal.. for instance, somebody who didnt have bloodsongs as there favourite, maybe there second favourite, could see it struggling, and be sympathetic voting it there favourite when perhaps it isnt... :eek: personally my faouvrite is bloodsongs so i voted for that... my negavite vote was tactical, dont want seed getting too far in front if bloodsongs is to win.. ;)

    What if...what if everyone went through all nine and gave a mark for each? For example, 9 for favourite, 8 for next fave, and so on until the least liked gets a 1?

    Well, that's a different method with a different dynamic.. Why not set up a separate process?

    NoCelebrity Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    What's in it for me? (Just Kidding)

    I just got my first THREE Nick Albums ("that ****ing American bragging again!") so I don't think it's fair for me to vote just yet. I need to buy the other six (rhymes w/Nick's) before I can truly give a fair appraisal, or at the very least I need a significant bribe... I see my three rate 32, so far.

    I have to update my review BTPMITG first for HarperpR's thread/song of the month (and maybe post a new blog about the blues guitar class I'm taking).

    Hopefully, I can check back to find out which Nick to buy next (yes, I like it so far...). Of course, I still have some Roy to catch up on too, but I'm getting closer...

    Travellerman Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    "Last album standing" It could take a very long time though :D.

    But the fact that a live album is top I find interesting. I can't instantly think of an artist who would be known or recognised for a live album over all their studio output. I know this isn't an exact science, but still...
