Re: 70's Poll Planning & Discussion

How about this as a balance. In this instance, Ten 20 place votes = One 1st place vote. Two 7th place votes = One 1st place vote. Two 10th place votes = One 5th place vote, and so on throughout the list. Seems fair while still rewarding high-placing albums/songs. This looks good to me as well, than...

In both my system and yours, the raw point differences are the same at the bottom of the list. And really, if a song isn't placing above 20 on a list it doesn't matter either way. I'm mu...
