@LooseCannon sorry if this has been answered but do you have a specific date in september when you will begin gathering statistics? Would like to know how quickly I should finish these.
Well I'm not back from vacation until Sept 13, and my own rankings aren't done. I'll likely collate the findings starting on the 30th.

Data collection is complete - next up there will be a topic with the 2016 results once I get some paragraphs written. Contacting the volunteers soon.

It's not too late to volunteer to add a few song paragraphs to this project! Just reply here. So far only @mckindog and @Mosh have volunteered their time.

I never got around to rating the songs, but I could do some writing.

(Edit: still planning to finish my ratings, by the way, just a bit slow with it.)

I've got spare time and might be able to write something. What sort of thing are you after?

one-to-three paragraph reviews of a song, what you feel about it, why it might have landed where it did, etc.

Hi everyone,

I will be collating the data from our polls over the Christmas weekend this year. I encourage everyone to Have a Very Maiden Christmas Season, listen to the albums, and update your rankings.

For those who have never ranked songs here, please feel free to do so. I only ask two things:
1. Don't protest vote. Even if you think a song is over-rated, please do not toss it a super-low score just because you want to see that song's average come down.
2. Keep your rankings consistent. 10s are the timeless classics, the greatest songs, the apex of the experience. 1s are your least favourite song and equivalent.

Feel free to leave a note explaining your choice, or talking about the songs in general!
