From now on I will just nominate the biggest shit I can find on youtube, it doesn't matter.. I get no points anyway 8-)


Here's high-five for the last-placers!

I wonder who was the ps**** who voted for mine though :lol:

EDIT: Or maybe just old-fashioned.

I agree for not displaying the whole grid - that I made and is right now on my computer, elsewhere I wouldn't be able to count - but see, even with that grid I wasn't able to count - I think I did it in a hurry and forgot to check I took everyone's vote...
I also think it's better not to show to who everyone gave their points... Because we all want to remain friends, right? :mrgreen: Even Quetzalcoatl! :partyhat:

You guys do know there's a spreadsheet you can use instead of creating your own grid?! You can find it here.

Wait a minute, Quetzalcoatl wasn't even in last place this time! So he was actually wrong on that point, too.

Actually, yours was another one that I liked but didn't vote for! I really was expecting it to be much worse than it was. :P

I'm not sure anyone meant to imply we didn't know, but filling it out is still work. :whistle: I mean, adding everything by hand is technically even more work, but like I said, I'm old-fashioned. :blush:

*Sees it got second place*

*Checks again in disbelief*

Holy shit! I'm usually one of the last placers! :P

I'm almost always one of the last-placers, like in this competition. :P But I have won before, especially when there were like five voters or less. :mrgreen:

That reminds me: How many voters were there in all, france-eesti? Last time you gave a number, you said there were seven votes in so far, except that you said in this thread that eight people voted for the winner (the Malagasy song). :)

We had 10 voters + me = 11 voters :P which is pretty good in my opinion :)

You can always compute it by dividing the total number of points by 24. (However, you might get a slightly smaller real number in case someone voted without nominating a song)

I just figured that out. I was mainly confused because I always thought it was one extra point people got for voting, not two! :oops: Fortunately, that doesn't change the results for October, at least as far as the top two songs are concerned.

This is why using the spreadsheet Youngfun created would be a good idea - it takes into account all the rules already! :D

Well it's OB + dEhiN (or OB with dEhiN approval), because I edited his spreadsheet to take into account the new rule. So, who do you trust more - your own brain or the brains of two of your friends? :P

If all my friends jumped off a bridge, then obviously, their brains are telling them to jump off a bridge, but does that mean I should do it, too? No! :twisted: (At least, not necessarily. It may be a wise decision if in fact there is clearly a trampoline or mat that we'd land on after jumping off whereas there's a land mine on the bridge itself :lol:).
