How many does a list need to have before it counts? I don't think I could make a list of 100...

I would say at least 50. DocBrown sent a list just like that.

Can I put two artists in one entry?

Some examples:
Fugges/Lauryn Hill
Parliament/Funkadelic
Paul McCartney/Wings
The Jackson 5/The Jacksons
Joy Division/New Order
George Michael/Wham

Why would you put Joy Division and New Order together? They're two very distinct artists with two different styles. Only thing in common is three band members. Even then I would argue Joy Division was ruled by Ian Curtis alone.

Okay, Bruno, the rest of my thoughts on your artist. I've spent all day thinking about them.

Lauryn Hill should be counted as a solo artist. If you group her with Fugees, you're going to have to group Wyclef Jean and Pras along. As such, she should be considered a solo artist. It is along with that thought that George Michael should be counted as solo apart from Wham! (even with similar styles).

Parliament/Funkadelic probably should be considered as one since they are frequently paired together. The Jackson 5/The Jacksons are basically the same.

When people think of Paul McCartney's solo career, they probably think of Wings songs, so therefore I would campaign for those two to get grouped together.

As always, this is JimmyJazz's list so he has the final word over all this.

Bruno, Babydoll's classifications are literally my own. I would go the aforementioned routes for each of these acts respectively.

My Prince comment will seem...awkward in light of recent events.

If you could revise or edit the sentence where I talk about him when he was alive, that would be fine.

I'm going to submit a list, it's just that whenever I'm thinking of doing so I starting thinking "well what if The Avalanches or LCD Soundsystem or whoever drop a surprise album and their rankings shoot up on my list?"

So I probably won't be getting one in until the end.

I, too, will be submitting a list, but it'll probably be sometime in the final week. For the sake of easier future list-making, I've finally been streamlining hundreds of handwritten pages of song/album ratings into a single spreadsheet. There's no way I'll be finished with the project in a month. (I would guess I have around 5,000 albums and 30,000 songs to enter, since I've been making music lists since 1982 when I was 11 years old!) But I should have enough done to provide a much more accurate artist rating than I did last time.

I think you should decide based on significant values. Do full results as soon as the remaining artists have strong support by a few users; it'd be a bit much to break everything down if many of the artists only have one or two voters. You can also ramp up the detail as the project goes on, like I did for the songs poll. Just the details in the beginning, then something like a famous quote, then do an even wider view in the top 100.

What constitutes a proper display in regard to artist? Summarizing their works rankings in the album and song poll?

I'd say it depends, last time the score difference was so little after 100 that it didn't make much sense going into details further; but with more ballots it might be more relevant

Aside from the work rankings in both recent album and song polls, I will also show the rankings on AM and in past AM Artist polls. I WAS going to include comments from users, but I am getting a poor turn out in that regards. So, like you did Bleu, I might have to prod some folks on that front, though for something like this it would have to be for only users who volunteer to do so, as I don't want to spoil the Top 100 for all of the forum, via PMs and only in an unranked format.

Thoughts to this?

I realize that I forgot to mention that Pierre had submitted a list awhile ago. He just sent his revised list, though, which reminded me of doing so.

Okay everyone, there are officially 2 weeks and five days left until this poll closes. Anyone who wanted to submit a list should plan on doing so in the very near future, and anyone wishing to send revisions should also do so.

I think we are getting a very nice and diverse list in terms of genres and eras for this thing!

46 ballots everyone, with Henrik, notbrianeno, and acroamor having submitted ballots. I also got Daniel's revised list.

There is officially less than 2 weeks left for this poll. Once again, anyone wishing to submit a ballot or revise their already submitted lists should do so very soon!

I may do a PM blast for those who have said they will or have voted in the past.

Just to make sure, did you get the two changes to my list?


Also, can I request you do something similar to what I did at the beginning of the song poll, listing everyone's favorite act that didn't make the final list?
