January 2019 PJ Charts: It Ain't My Fault That I'm Out Here Making News

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by ohnostalgia, Jan 14, 2019.

    Hello, I am ohnostalgia. My mission is to spark joy in the world through charts. The ohnostalgia method is unique because I chart by PJ opinions rather than the general public. In the ohnostalgia method we chart two categories in a specific order.

    First, is albums.
    Next, is songs.

    When dealing with prolific music fans, maintaining a tidy chart is a struggle.
    Through trial and error I've found that a standardized ballot is best moving forwards.
    Please use the following template when voting.

    10 points:
    9 points:
    8 points:
    7 points:
    6 points:
    5 points:
    4 points:
    3 points:
    2 points:
    1 point:

    If you are only voting for five albums, please stop at 6 points.

    This may take some getting used to, but it will help reduce errors as I will no longer be converting ranking to points in my head.

    When submitting a specific entry please use the following formats

    Song (Feature Artist) - Main Artist
    Album - Artist

    If a song has two artists, but neither is featured, please submit accordingly

    Song - Main Artist 1 & Main Artist 2

    Thank You.


    1. Send a chart of your 10 favourite songs and 5 to 10 favourite albums (using the format above) in a PM to @ohnostalgia.
    2. You can choose to send only songs or albums if you wish
    3. The songs can be singles, album tracks, demos, or anything you want.
    4. The albums can be full length, EP, compilations and even unreleased albums
    5. You cannot submit a ballot entirely full of K-pop. There is an equally fabulous K Chart run by @Slice of Life. You must vote for at least one non K-pop song (a K-pop song for the Japanese/Chinese/etc market is treated the same as a release for Korean audiences). I would encourage you to vote for at least one non K-pop album, but it is not required.
    6. The songs and albums can be released whenever, but releases within the past 6 months or so have the best chance to make a chart.
    7. The charts should be what you've been listening to in the past month.
    8. Your favourite song/album gets 10 points, scaling all the way down to 1 point.
    9. The total points earned builds the chart.
    10. An album or song must have a minimum of two voters to chart.
    11. Ties are broken by number of voters, then by highest vote, by quality of vote, then lowest score. If we still can't break parity the entries remain tied.
    12. The top five songs each month make the 2019 PJ Chart Rate, a modified Eurovision Style contest that runs once a year.

  4. Add your faves to our January 2019 FYC Playlist! In the spirit of tidying, try to add songs alphabetically (by title).

    Please remember that while the playlist is a great way for your faves to gain exposure, nothing beats a dedicated plea for votes in the actual thread.

  5. I will now commence a tagging spree, summoning old and future voters. You may post.

  7. My darling, not sure I'll be a consistent participant this year (unless more MKS/Amiel/Susumu/Kate Bush/Sheila new music is released and/or I can form more alliances for old music)
