    The Basics:

    1. If you are interested in running a rate and have finalized an idea, please @ me or PM me and you will be added to the queue. Please do not start a rate without waiting your turn! Also, make sure to check the queue/holding room/completed rates list to ensure that your idea hasn't already been taken.

    2. I will PM you 1-2 weeks before you are scheduled to start. If you are unable to start your rate at that time, it's more than fine and we can postpone it to later.

    3. Rates will be run as follows:
    Week 1: Rate from List A
    Week 2: Rate from List B
    Week 3: Rate from List C
    Week 4: Rate from either List B or List C

    4. Please think it through before confirming the start date for your rate. This is explained more below, but basically, rates are a bigger investment than you probably think they are. Think about your schedule over 2-3 months and make your decision based on that. Your voting period generally lasts 4-6 weeks, and results take about 2-4 weeks.

    5. After your voting period has finished, you MUST PM the results to me. I will hound your inbox anyway to make sure this happens!


    The Ground Rules:

    1. Be aware of what you're signing up for - it's not necessarily easy and sometimes it's not always that fun either, but if you sign up to run a rate and get to do it, don't waste everyone's time. Whether six or sixty people participate, it's your responsibility to finish.

    2. You're allowed one voting period extension of one week. If you must extend the voting period, make sure it counts and actually hustle to get those extra votes. Don't let the thread languish. Get it up there on the front page!

    3. If a rate is inactive for a week with no explanation, then it can officially be taken over by someone who feels more up to the task. A week seems harsh, but any more just allows for piss taking. Especially if you're posting on the forum during said week and not touching the rate. If you provide an explanation, you're given another week to get things started again. After that, no excuses. Either hand over your results to someone who is capable of delivering them, or the rate is forfeited for someone else to start again. If there's something in your life stalling the process for two weeks, then quite frankly I doubt it's magically going to get better on Day 15. We can maybe renegotiate the time limits, but I think they're fair.

    4. If you need help, ASK FOR IT. Look, everyone just wants to see these things get complete. If you don't want to run it anymore, or don't think you can, or you think you can but you maybe just need a hand, please ask in the Rate Queue thread or in the actual rate thread. There's never a shortage of people who will want to help out to see things completed. There's not some benchmark to hit for presentation. People just want to talk about the songs and the scores and positions they reach. Everything else is just window dressing. Don't get bogged down by it.

  5. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I have the following rates to run:

    X Factor loser debuts (Diana Vickers / One Direction / Rebecca Ferguson / Cher Lloyd)

    The Corrs
    Annie Lennox
  6. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I'd assume we still aren't adding new rates that weren't already listed on Part 4 (where I had asked to do Hilary Duff and Demi Lovato) because those requests still stand.

    In the delayed/deferred section if Blob doesn't want Avril Lavigne's discography anymore, I'd be all for running that at some point down the road.
  7. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I'm doing The Saturdays discography.
  8. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    And on the day it begins, I will cry tears of joy.
  9. A&E


    Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    Tori Amos singles* rate (older/niche) here.

    * unless there's demand for a bigger rate, which I don't think there is.
  10. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    Myself, Alchemy Jones and possibly others want to do a four-part Kylie discography. But that can be whenever.

    Thanks for doing this Rain.
  11. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    Ha, sorry to call you out Viva but maybe we should have a cap on how many rates you can have in the queue. I know previously it was more of an incentive to request many since the queue is so long, but it really doesn't help the situation! I think 2 is a good number, maybe 3 at a push.

    I'd like to request to keep the Lykke Li and Little Bootles/La Roux/Diana Vickers Vs rate please! (Could you get rid of my 00s rate?)
  12. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I'd still like to do the M.I.A. discography rate, please and thank you.
  13. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I will reapply for my girl Miley.
  14. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I'd like to put my name for the Natalia Kills rate. Also, I would be interested in running an All Saints rate and.. later that Big Girlgroup Album rate I was talking about in which the tracks from Spiceworld, Saints & Sinners, Three, Tangled Up, Chasing Lights, and Salute are rated or whatever your favorite album is from these groups. If that rate happens, can people PM me their favorite albums from the likes of The Spice Girls, All Saints, Sugababes, Girls Aloud, The Saturdays, and Little Mix.
  15. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    Big / Current:
    Lily Allen discog
    One Direction discog

    The New Classic / The PinkPrint / Broke With Expensive Taste
  16. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I'd still like to do a Depeche Mode singles rate, and a Bowie rate of some kind (the latter might be more popular what with the new Retrospective just out, so I don't mind which one gets precedence).

    Oh, and I'm down for a Duran singles rate too...happy to still do that one as well.

    Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates


    No problem. I've added it is as one rate for now, and when the time comes we'll split it up and make it more specific.

    Done! And you raise a fair point. If you still want all of those rates Viva, we might just space them out more if that's okay, so others have a chance to run their rates first after you've finished one.

    New rates are always welcomed, I've added you to the list. And I'm not even sure if Blob is an active member anymore...maybe try PMing them and you might be able to take it!
  18. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I wanna see a Celine Discography rate - I know that cowboy had it reserved in the last round, but it was waaaaay far back. I could give it a go, if I played around with photoshop for a month [or so.
  19. Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    I'd still like to do the Sophie Ellis-Bextor rate which can come out of the delayed section now and the Come and Get It/State of Mind/Anniemal/Neon Nights versus rate.

    Re: General Rate Discussion, Questions, and Suggestions (Part 5) - Re-apply for Rates

    Done! Also, the other thread tells me that you're running FKA twigs vs. Banks vs. TBA - do you still want to run that or should I move it to the Unclaimed Rates section?

    I'd still PM him just in case. And regardless, we'll be following the order of the other thread so you might end up having to wait a bit anyway!
