Hey Jude has had a net change of +2; Catch the Wind has had a net change of -1; Catch the Wind is ranked higher than Hey Jude.
I'm just having trouble seeing the logic in this.

I did my changes off of the OP's list from yesterday, added new songs at the end (like the rules say) and adjusted post by post, so if mine is off... is not my fault.

[+] Missed the Boat - Modest Mouse

(and to the poster before me, the rules say that new things get added to the end. the counting method... needs a lot of work)

though I must say I like secondtalon's method of counting better... everything starts at zero (with... lets say... -5 and they get deleted) and gets more or less as we go along

You can see I had to change around a few things to make it work. There was one instance where a song was bumped off the bottom of the list which caused problems, so I simply moved it down one place. Song names all made to be the same (I hope!).

Now, I am changing the program to implement the new suggested point ranking system. We can use the existing posts and continue from there. I do think that the point system would be more fair.

So can we vote once or twice per post? "Hey Jude", IMO, is not the Beatles' best song. I would have gone for perhaps "While my guitar gently weeps" (new version from 'Love'). I'd vote Hey Jude down but will leave it for now.

I like the idea of negative votes staying on the list, because if they get dropped, they could not be upvoted later and, frankly, a small group of people with a hatred for, say, the Beatles could downvote all Beatles songs into nonexistence before most people get a chance to see that it's there, what with some people only checking the Forum every few days.

That said, there probably should be *a* dropoff point. Like -5 or -10.

Now, the next things I will add to the ranking system will be:

+ Case, Space, and non-alphanumeric symbol insensitivity for ranking changes ([+] and [-])
+ Warnings for ranking changes of songs not already on the list
+ Warnings for adding songs already on the list
+ Ranking Tiers: Top 10 songs, Lower 50%

The first three just add to the ease of compiling the list. The fourth will add BBCode to format the list so that the top 10 songs are prominently displayed, while the lowest 50% of songs on the list are in the region of shame. Hopefully this should inspire more competition.
Goodnight, g♥♥dnight! There's something magnificent about good night with two disemboweled hearts in it, or at least it seems that way when you're so happy.

Just listened to it on YouTube. Cool song but I don't think worthy of being at the top :D

Oh! This just gave me a great idea for a new feature: linking media to songs

Lnk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erc40wCxRZo Dashboard - Modest Mouse

This will turn the name of the song on the list into a link. You can do an unlimited number of these in a post, but use good judgment.
