The moment you have all been waiting for has finally arrived, your chance to vote in The Afterword album of year poll 2016.
This is a poll for ‘new’ albums recorded for and released in 2016. Re-releases, remasters, remixes and historical recordings made years ago are for a different list.
There is a complicated scoring mechanism, so PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!
(Click to read on!)…
Each pollster is allowed a maximum of twenty-five votes. In order to focus the mind on which albums really are your favourites, points are allocated as follows:
1st : 25 points,
2nd : 18 points,
3rd : 15 points,
4th : 12 points,
5th : 10 points,
6th : 8 points,
7th : 6 points,
8th : 5 points,
9th : 4 points,
10th : 3 points,
1 point for 11-25.
The sequence is, therefore, extremely important. If you don’t number your selections, it will be assumed the first one you name is number one and so on down to twenty-five.
Discussions, comments are most welcome (and are the most important part).
@salwarpe has kindly offered to help keep score. Although, we may end up doing a simple count of ‘mentions’ if it all goes pear-shaped.
I hope as many Afterworders vote as possible, especially infrequent visitors (at least lately), such as the ladies @Contraryarticle, @Hannah, @Poppy-Succeeds, @RubyBlue and @Scarlet. It is each individual’s list that fascinates me far more than the final score.
The vote is now open. It will be closed midnight on 26th December 2016.
