ILM's 2021 End of Year Tracks & Albums Poll / VOTING THREAD

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Voting is hereby declared open until midnight PST on Friday January 21

Vote here: https://forms.gle/Asup3xSDoiZLjMLh8

The procedure is simple: enter your tracks and album ballots (up to 25 items on each), one item per line, in the appropriate fields below. Please copy each line directly from the nominations list; do not number your ballot.

You can choose one of three ballot types, which determine how points are allocated to each item you vote for:

(1) Weighted: The first item on your ballot receives 50 points, the second receives 48 points, and so on, until the 25th item receives 2 points.

(2) Unweighted: Each item on your ballot receives 26 points.

(3) Mixed: To submit a mixed ballot, you must divide your ballot in two with an extra blank line. The upper portion of the ballot will be treated as weighted, with the first item receiving 50 points, and so on. The lower portion will be treated as unweighted, in that all items will receive the same number of points. The score allocated to items in the unweighted portion is calculated as 26 minus the number of items in the weighted portion (this is so that any weighted, unweighted or mixed ballot consisting of 25 items will allocate a total of exactly 650 points).

Easy enough: I made a list of my noms, added some from the Google sheet---all albums though: I selected "missing" for Singles ballot type, wrote Didn't Do Singles in ballot space---is that okay?

dow, Wednesday, 5 January 2022 03:42 (two weeks ago) link

If not, I could do the whole thing over, and just choose a few singles after all, maybe at random (as I could have done anyway, but couldn't be arsed, sorry).

dow, Wednesday, 5 January 2022 03:45 (two weeks ago) link

Albums ballot in. Tracks coming later on.

yeah it's fine

(you could also have just left the singles box blank)

Vangelis fleadh (seandalai), Wednesday, 5 January 2022 13:25 (two weeks ago) link

already submitted my ballots without overthinking it, otherwise I'll end up losing my mind. first year doing unweighted ballots, hope it wasn't a mistake to do it that way.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Wednesday, 5 January 2022 20:15 (two weeks ago) link

voted. thank you for putting this together

gman59, Wednesday, 5 January 2022 21:52 (two weeks ago) link

Are we allowed write-ins btw? Just thought of something I forgot to nominate. It's okay if it would be easier for you if I didn't

imago, Thursday, 6 January 2022 10:28 (two weeks ago) link

Goddamit I knew I shouldn’t have rushed it, there’s three tracks that I want to change from the ballot I submitted

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 6 January 2022 17:46 (two weeks ago) link

Playboi Carti - Whole Lotta Red

is on the album noms list but it placed in last year's poll iirc

rob, Thursday, 6 January 2022 18:16 (two weeks ago) link

iirc you can simply resubmit ballots if you're not happy, or if you discover things subsequently on the playlists

imago, Thursday, 6 January 2022 18:31 (two weeks ago) link

Mmm is it true? Can I resubmit a ballot?

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 6 January 2022 21:24 (two weeks ago) link

Voted.

If you want to resubmit just enter a new ballot and post on this thread - I'll go in and delete the old ballot.

Write-ins are generally tolerated so long as everyone doesn't start relying on them and they don't come in close to the voting deadline.

Hi - in my nomination, somehow I misspelled the artist name Raveena as Ravenna (for the track "Tweety") – and the misspelling carried over to the nomination spreadsheet. I'm doing my ballot now, and will copy & paste with the misspelling included (to avoid confusion). Sorry 'bout that.

Can't believe this is the first year I haven't submitted a full albums ballot on account of I have heard literally 10 albums all the way through more than once.

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Monday, 10 January 2022 18:10 (one week ago) link

I know it's clearly stated that you need to copy directly from the sheets, but just wanted to flag that this track has no space after the artist/before the hyphen, which feels like an invitation for some votes being missed.

It's on my ballot, so I guess we'll see.

Voted!

Gavin, Leeds, Monday, 17 January 2022 10:24 (three days ago) link

I'm probably going to be right up against the deadline, just haven't been in the right frame of mind to finish up assembling my ballot, ugh.

emil.y, Monday, 17 January 2022 14:31 (three days ago) link

flagging that "Pa Salieu ft. Obonjayar - Style & Fashion" should be "Pa Salieu ft. Obongjayar - Style & Fashion"

roflrofl fight (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 18 January 2022 04:39 (two days ago) link

^^ just voted for this as is on the spreadsheet, but hoping this will be corrected come results time

roflrofl fight (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 05:23 (yesterday) link

voted!

paolo, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 08:34 (yesterday) link

Voted! Weird year for me musically, didn't spend a huge amount of time with 2021 albums, but had no problem finding a bunch of tracks I liked enough to vote for. Made a last minute change to my number one album just because I happened to listen to it this morning.

silverfish, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 15:13 (yesterday) link

Thanks to everyone that's reporting corrections - I'll make sure the fixes show up as such in the results.

Vangelis fleadh (seandalai), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 16:42 (yesterday) link

Oh man, I have managed to listen to maybe 10% of the nominees -- I love voting in this but don't know if I'll manage it this year. What's the moral status of submitting a short ballot?

Guayaquil (eephus!), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 16:44 (yesterday) link

I'd say go for it. Personally, I like my ballot to reflect my year as I lived it, rather than attempting to do a comprehensive survey of all the unheard music and then judiciously selecting the "best" stuff. Obviously others here enjoy using the noms list for exploration, but I don't think that's the only way

rob, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 16:48 (yesterday) link

Likewise. If I vote, it will be a short albums-only ballot that will have zero impact on anything.

o. nate, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 16:57 (yesterday) link

The problem is, my year as I live it seldom involves very much or any new music, and my main way of interacting with what happened in a given year is listening to the ILX noms each January...

Guayaquil (eephus!), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 16:58 (yesterday) link

I re-sent my tracks ballot

Saxophone Of Futility (Michael B), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 17:21 (yesterday) link

procrastinating making my ballot. posting here in attempt to commit myself into making one today

flopson, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 17:28 (yesterday) link

I didn't get around to nominating so I'm sad not to see any of the following in the tracks list:

Arab Strap - Fable of the Urban Fox
Buke & Gase - Ancient Tool Gadget feat. So Percussion
GusGus - Stay the Ride
oddcouple - Reflections feat. Jamila Woods
Rebecca Ferguson and Nile Rodgers - No Words Needed
The Mountain Goats - Dark In Here
Tobe Nwigwe and Fat Nwigwe - FYE FYE
Tune-Yards - Hold Yourself
Tune-Yards - Hypnotize

short ballot >>>> no ballot

Vangelis fleadh (seandalai), Thursday, 20 January 2022 00:03 (twenty-two hours ago) link

Vangelis fleadh (seandalai), Thursday, 20 January 2022 00:04 (twenty-two hours ago) link

Bee OK, Thursday, 20 January 2022 02:06 (twenty hours ago) link

so that took about two an a half hours

Bee OK, Thursday, 20 January 2022 04:26 (eighteen hours ago) link

Voted

Bee OK, Thursday, 20 January 2022 04:26 (eighteen hours ago) link

Voted, albums only. Most of the music I listened to this year, even Bobbins-wise, was full records, didn't really pay attention to singles.

Been away from ILX/ILM for the last 12 months for personal reasons but I won't miss being part of the 77 rollouts.

Thank you to all who make the upcoming fun happen X

Tomorrow night hopefully, or I'm fucked. I read it as tomorrow night, anyway.
