Durr how can you possibly vote for even a third of the tracks you've nominated?

Tim F, Saturday, 21 April 2012 01:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

Isn't one of the points of a nomination thread is to provide as many choices as possible for voters?

gotta strike a balance b/w choice and overwhelming everyone w/ 1000 different options - also there is the chance we might end up w too big of a list for google forms to handle

the late great, Saturday, 21 April 2012 02:21 (1 year ago) Permalink

well, okay. but it's not like I nominated obscure tracks that no one's gonna vote for. they're rather obvious, really. so when will this process end?

idk, i kinda like the idea of this thread as a compendium of everything ilm thought worthy of consideration in the 00's, even if it is a little overboard in terms of actual options

I don't think loving a track for a week justify putting it as one of your top 10 or so tracks in 12 years.

What if the on heady week we loved it for was back in 2003 and we're having to refresh our dancefloor-damaged memories? All my vinyl is on the other side of the world and my portable hard drive's dead - it'll take a little while to piece together clues from old emails/messageboard posts/etc.

for example, it seems slight un-fair to me that 5 #10s has the same weight as 4 #1s, or that 5 #20s have the same weight as 3 #1s. i guess what i'm saying is that it seems to heavily favor the center of the distribution which might be why so many "middle of the road" choices place relatively high on certain poll threads.

there's also the option of going the arithmetic progression route but ramping up the common difference every ten or so places, for example 50-49-48 geting 1-2-3 pts, then 40-39-38 getting 11-13-15 pts, 30-29-28 getting 32-35-38 pts, etc... though in my experience the results usually aren't that much different than those gained with the standard '50th 1 pt, 1st 50 pts' procedure, and middle of the road picks inevitably prevail no matter what system you choose, especially if a large numble of people are involved (i guess the only properly anti-MOR system would be some sort of super-quirky/wacky version of the Village Voice model like, i dunno, distributing 1000 points to 10-50 tunes?)

my noms:

Afefe Iku - Mirror Dance
Animal Collective - Peacebone (Pantha Du Prince Remix)

Deadmau5 - Not Exactly

moka - any particular reason other than ruining the ILM "top 100 post-frankentrance tracks of the 10s" we're going poll eight years from now?

― the late great

Well, the poll title says tracks of the 00's. It irks me to include tracks from the past couple of years. Might as well add songs from 1999.

On an unrelated note, I was thinking that maybe splitting it into two polls would be a good idea to reduce the noms. On one poll original tracks and on the other one remixes. Just like they do it on Resident Advisor.

Moka, Saturday, 21 April 2012 16:47 (1 year ago) Permalink

We already have +1000 tracks and at least 200 are remixes.

OK

a few reminders

1) even though the list of nominations is not going to be capped - unlike many other polls where people got a maximum number of nominations - the # of votes ARE going to be capped.

2) so whether we go with a ranking or a points system, you aren't going to be able to vote for *everything* you want to, and i am personally strongly in favor of giving extra weight to ballots w/ fewer tracks on them (a point system would make this simplest)

3) this means that you probably want to go through the list and see how many tracks are already up that you'd want vote for before you add any more nominations. for example, i just spent five minutes doing that and found about forty tracks i would probably nominate myself. this means i am now going to flip through my collection and pick maybe ten tracks i really want on the ballot so i can vote for them, rather than just grabbing every mix and compilation i have and nominating every track i enjoyed

4) as EDB said, for the love of god, please control-f or at least scan the list, just scrolling up and down quickly through the list i see a bunch of repeat noms, many of them rather obvious choices too

the late great, Saturday, 21 April 2012 18:44 (1 year ago) Permalink

There's so many tracks now that there's going to be a really thin dispersal of votes presumably with a few tracks getting shitloads and some really surprising choices in the lower reaches of the list.

Homosexual Satan Wasp (Matt DC), Saturday, 21 April 2012 18:48 (1 year ago) Permalink

That depends how many votes we get

Let's Talk About Socks (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Saturday, 21 April 2012 18:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah even though i am a maths/sciences person and statistics and probability is not my strong suit i can intuitively tell that "long tail" effect is kinda going to fuck over the integrity of the results if that tail gets big enough

the late great, Saturday, 21 April 2012 18:58 (1 year ago) Permalink

or i guess i should say long enough

then again i imagine that is always a problem to some extent with any poll with a similar methodology, the choices/ordering at the "bottom" (ie less popular) are going to be less predictable and meaningful than the "top" no matter what, it's just going to be a matter of degrees

and also i am sure in the end the moaning on the results thread will not be about process but rather about the definition of house/techno and the pernicious influence of dance hipsterism / contrarianism / middlebrowism / grimebloggerism / pipecockism (see: jazz albums poll results)

the late great, Saturday, 21 April 2012 19:02 (1 year ago) Permalink

TBH though it wouldn't be that different to having no nominations at all and everyone getting carte blanche to vote for any dance track they wanted.

Part of the reason I nominated more than I could feasibly vote for was because I wanted to at least have the option of voting for some of them, I have no idea what's going to make my final ballot and I want other people to have the option of voting for them as well.
