  2. 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.
  3. oh oh oh oh oh and also

  4. This year's best line™ can't be missing in @ohnostalgia's brilliant rate.

  5. Isn't Mel B bisexual?

    *gives 11 to Feels So Good*

    Oh and 2/3 of Stooshe are bisexual or lesbian.

    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?

  13. 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.

  14. I've decided.

    Teen Pop Girl Group Debuts: Dream vs. 3LW vs. Eden's Crush vs. M2M.

  15. 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.
