Is Janet part deux of the table? Please not.
It was meant to be happening like... now... or in a week, I have all the art done and prep ready. But who knows?!
I would be so here for this!
I am 100% here for a Paloma rate. I can't wait to give this song the high score it deserves.
No offense, but why is there always a big log jam of 5,000 rates in the 'results' stage?
This is frustrating.
@RainOnFire, can you reach out to current rate hosts who haven't updated their rates in a while and figure out their timelines to completion?
I think the NOW 40-49 and Alicia Keys rates may have died...
I believe Heaven on Earth was reworking on the scores and commentary as it wasnot send to RainOnFire (just the ranking). I can help out with some reveals, but not all this data work.
Also let me take out this moment to say:
CAN PEOPLE PLEASE SEND EVERYTHING TO RAINONFIRE. I know a rate feels like a personal baby, but if something goes wrong it is such an extra effort for people saving the rate to get all the commentary and scores.
I mean...I know things can crop up in life, and this will no doubt come back to haunt me, but how can you have the intent to start something, begin it and then just...stop. At least have the decency to let people know and then hand it over properly to someone who is up for completing it.
Though in @D.F.P.'s case he hasn't actually been on for over a month, I hope he's ok.
Maybe instead of requiring that people turn over just the results to @RainOnFire when voting closes, it should be required to turn over the entire spreadsheet including all participants' scores and commentary. So if the original host can't complete the reveals for whatever reason, whoever picks it up has an easier time.
I’m actually a bit worried. I remember him swooping in to save the Shakira rate so I’m surprised he dropped off the forum during the Alicia rate. It seems quite unlike him.
I presume at least one user must have PMed him in the interim, and the PM should have bounced to his email address he used to sign up for the forum...so even if he didn't log in to PJ, he'd be aware that people were trying to get in touch with him (unless he doesn't check that email address anymore, or the messages go into spam/trash). Hmm.
They have 666 likes.
For real I hope they are okay.
When you realise you listened to all those NOW compilations for nothing.
I agree. I know some of the rates have been delayed for personal reasons, but at the same time maybe it wasn’t meant to be for that person to finish the rate when you start getting multi month postponements. @send photo had to drop out of our rate but a plan was made to finish instead of waiting until he felt capable to resume.
It is mandatory to hand over the entire spreadsheet although I forgot last time cause I had a cohost. Good point about the commentary though.
I suspect handing over the spreadsheet might be missed quite a bit. When I took over a rate, all the former host had sent to @RainOnFire was a list of the the final rankings - no average scores, no individual scores, no list of participants, no commentary. I attempted to cobble things together by tagging everyone who I saw participate in the thread and have them PM me their scores/commentary if they still had it, but I'm sure I missed a bunch of people.
If I recall correctly, @D.F.P. didn't get a spreadsheet to @RainOnFire either? I think part of the delay in restarting the Alicia rate (other than allowing new people to participate) is @Heaven on Earth having to recollect everyone's scores and commentary and recalculate everything.
I missed logging in to you dragging me.
