Forum Song Contest - All-Stars 2018

Postby france-eesti » 2018-12-03, 8:09

Voting system in short:
10 favorites: 12-10-8-7-6-...-1 points.

This All-Stars edition contains 18 songs, two winners of each of the nine 2018 Forum Song Contests (64 - 72).

The voting rules:

  • Every registered Unilanger may vote
  • To vote, send me a PM with your 10 favorites ordered by your preference
  • Each user's favorite song will receive 12 points, #2: 10 points, #3: 8 points, #4: 7 points, #5: 6 points, ..., #10: 1 point
  • A user must not vote more than once (last vote counts)
  • Participants are allowed to vote for the songs they submitted
  • A vote is only valid if it lists 10 different songs from the official nomination list. Only votes sent by PM to me are valid.
  • The tie-breaking rule is that, in the event that two or more songs tie for first place and for other places the song that received points from the greater number of voters is the winner. If there is still a tie, the second tie-breaker is to count the number of voters who assigned 12 points to each entry in the tie. Tie-breaks continue with 10 points to one point until the tie is resolved.
  • Please write the name of the artists and the song titles in your votes. In this All-Stars edition, mentioning only the language is not enough since there might be multiple songs in the same language.

Time frame:

Once this thread is created - 1 January 2019, 00:00 UTC: Voting period
1 January 2019 : Results are announced

Remember that you're allowed to vote even if you haven't contributed a song to the contest. Newbies are always welcome!

Sw is Swahili, not Swedish. Swedish Swedish (sv) is sv. Thanks! :)

I'm pretty sure I know how I want to vote, but I'd like to make sure first! :D
