The sample is the other way around thenFall came out two years before Impossible, though. Both written by Ina.
I'm sorry but @AfternoonsInUtopia scores for six of the last seven eliminations being three 0s, one 1 and two 10s is a bit... Like, that feels more like trying to influence the leaderboard as much as possible than actually rating the songs honestly. We all have songs we hate, but Karma, Puppet and Crashing Down all somehow being deserving of zeros is kind of ridiculous.
So you are basically accusing me of trying to rig the rate? To be fair, this is the very first time I've taken part in one, i like The Saturdays a lot, and for the most part i enjoy most of their tracks (46 tracks i gave 8 or “Higher”) and know their discography inside and out hence why i took part in this one! So its a bit unfair to assume this, i personally think those tracks in particular are utter crap and i avoid them at all costs, nothing more, nothing less, i also somehow fail to believe my votes alone would make that much of a difference at all, i certainly wouldn't know beforehand what order they would have appeared in so to say about “6 out of 7 songs in a row being rated 10s,1s & 0s” is a bit ridiculous in itself. Out of 78 tracks, 10 tracks i gave 0 points, 9 tracks i gave 1 point thats hardly going to affect the whole rate really isnt it?
Cliche as it is to say this but pop music is subjective and what one person thinks is great another thinks the opposite, its as simple as that. Theres no need to get so irritated and start making accusations over other peoples ratings just because you think its “ridiculous” that someone else has a differing opinion to yours. If you like them, good for you, I'm not bashing you for liking them, i personally just cannot stand those tracks, that is all, and given them ratings based on what i personally (& honestly) think they deserve, not what everyone else thinks of them. Isn't this the whole point of a ranking?
To be fair that's kind of an insane amount and not usually the norm in rates. In my opinion people should really only be allowed one 0 in rates, just like they get one 11.Out of 78 tracks, 10 tracks i gave 0 points, 9 tracks i gave 1 point thats hardly going to affect the whole rate really isnt it?

So what the hell is the point in doing a rate in that case? What your saying is coming across a tad hypocritical right now.in future rates it might be better to try being a bit less drastic with your scores.
You said this better than i ever could! Also i read the rules, and tried following a few other rates to get an idea of what to do before i came into this one, i genuinely thought this would be great fun to take part in a rate of a group whose back cat I'm entirely familiar with but after being reprimanded by people in here for my scores i think its safe to say this will be the last time if people get precious over rankings, its just totally sucked the fun out of it for me.This is also a bit extreme, the scale had always been 0-10, then the 11 got added, if anything allow one (-1) score, but 0's are just like 10's, but on the opposite end of the spectrum.
Yeah, the extremes strategy was probably a bit much, but not everyone scores all songs 7-10, which is what most people do so that if anyone does anything different that are taken aback by it.
most hosts would almost certainly see as a troll ballot (I know I would)
I'm assuming you would ask them to re-do it then? I'm willing to bet you only ask to adjust all the low scores, but in this case the number of high scores is pretty much as the same as low ones. It doesn't seem appropriate that a bunch of 10's are still allowed but 0's aren't? See the issue here? People have the 0-10 scale to use in whatever way they want, as long as there is some kind of balance. If they hate a song and feel it gets the lowest score they're allowed to give, fine. As long as they aren't giving everything 0's, 1's, and 2's and then only a few songs a 10 that they want to win, I don't see the harm. I've gotten a few of those type of ballots over the years and I did ask the voters to re-do them before accepting. To me, that's trying to rig the board.
Also they have very few low scores left among the last 29 here (I think only like 2 and only one is a 0) so there's that too. The reason I'd mention that, is that means there's not any "oh I know people love this and I don't want it being in contention to win, so let's 0 it" -- I simply just think they don't like the songs at all, that they gave 0's and 1's to.
Varied ballots make for more interesting results anyway, rather than everyone sending in 'love fest' ballots with only high score across the board of 6+.
I don't see how giving a lot of high scores is an issue or comparable to giving a lot of low ones, people who take part in rates are expected to generally like the music they're rating, so it goes with the territory. The issue with having a ton of super low scores is not a me thing either (and I've only ever actually asked someone to revise their ballot a bit one single time across the six rates I've hosted), most hosts aren't happy to receive that kind of ballot - to give a couple of current examples, in the BPG rate people are only allowed to give one 0, and in the KSOTY rate (the yearly K-Pop rate) people have to justify their sub-4 scores. I know everyone has their own way of scoring songs, but giving a 0/1 to literally one quarter of the list just seems absolutely wild to me, pretty sure that's not something I've ever witnessed in any rate I've ever taken part in.
In my mind, I'm replacing one of the vowels in your username with another.Some of the B-side scoring is wild.
I'm glad I'm here to tank the shit ones.
