Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by RainOnFire, Nov 19, 2014.
Half of The Veronicas!!! That might violate "no straight women" policy.
Also (with varying degrees of obviously queer perspectives in their music):
Sophie B. Hawkins
Ma Rainey (the lyrics to "Prove It On Me Blues" in particular were quite something to release in 1928!)
If half of an act is queer I’m open to considering it. I really meant more I don’t want straight female solo artists who you could maybe read some subtext into if you squint. I mean I enjoy doing that lots of times, but that’s not what the rate is about.
And I Kissed a Girl will never be in this rate and I’m sure you all don’t want or need me to have yet another rant about how much I hate that song (I also don’t particularly want to give one). We’ll just say I’d rather cancel the whole thing than include that trash.
oh oh oh oh oh and also
This year's best line™ can't be missing in @ohnostalgia's brilliant rate.
Isn't Mel B bisexual?
*gives 11 to Feels So Good*
Oh and 2/3 of Stooshe are bisexual or lesbian.
Something featuring Romy from the xx could be an interesting addition @ohnostalgia?
I'll stop now
@ohnostalgia please include Skin from Skunk Anansie. Thank you xx
Sorry to bug y'all about this, but does anyone have tips for a first-time rate host? Like ways to set up a score spreadsheet, ways to promo, etc?

If you have any questions about anything before the rate comes around, don't hesitate.
Spreadsheet is always hard to explain in text. It'd be easier if someone made one for you if you don't have a lot of experience in Excel. I have like 5/6 templates on Google Doc that I use, depending on the style of rate.
Promo options are a nice graphic in this thread ahead of the thread opening to get everyone excited. Then make sure to tag everyone in your thread to get a feel for who is interesting in voting, then remind those people periodically.
Teen Pop Girl Group Debuts: Dream vs. 3LW vs. Eden's Crush vs. M2M.
I don't stan any of those acts necessarily but it would be sacrilege and fly against everything I stand for around here if I didn't vote, so please harass me for my ballot when the times comes.
I am so here for this.
Me to anybody planning to tank Get Over Yourself:
It looks like you bought out your local FYE's entire collection circa 2002 when they hit the clearance bin xx.
Amazing! The Haim one reminds me of the scene in Dua's New Rules video haha!
